405 KETCH WAY, #405, Nokomis, FL, Florida 34275. This tropical canal-side sanctuary just south of Sarasota is amid 20 acres of well-maintained landscaped grounds shaded by mature trees and laced with paths. It's a spacious ranch level attached villa in a quiet and secure pet friendly 55+ community with a canoe/kayak launch, immaculate heated swimming pool and recreation area, community room, picnic grounds and private boat docks. Near the intra-coastal waterway, it's within an easy paddle of the Gulf of Mexico. Reach uncommonly beautiful Nokomis Beach in a 10-minute amble and even closer by bike as is waterside dining, a small market, bike/kayak concession and yoga sessions. Anglers know these waters for tarpon, pompano, flounder, redfish and grouper. Two large screened lanais frame this beautifully furnished, fully air-conditioned living and dining areas and two full bedrooms and two baths, one with a tub. Living is easy with a gourmet's kitchen, cable TV and washer/dryer. Minutes away is historic Venice with its extraordinary shopping and dining. Reach upscale Casey Key and miles of a pristine sandy beach across a lift bridge five minutes away. Bike the winding, canopied Casey Key Road to the island's north bridge where a fish house and cold beer await. A half hour away is Sarasota Airport (SRQ), served by Delta, US Airways, JetBlue, Air Canada and seasonally by others. Tampa and Ft Myers and their international airports are an hour away, and Orlando and Disney World is two hours distance. Let's face it, isn't this the way life is meant to be?
