The Laurel Nokomis area is in unincorporated Sarasota County just north of Venice. In fact, Venice has been annexing portions and calling it "North Venice". There are many different properties to choose from including mobile homes, condominiums, and single family homes, as well as some estate sized properties. Casey Key is in Nokomis but it is a market unto itself as one of the most desireable Gulf front locations. Some new home communities are in North Venice and Nokomis. Nokomis, located on Roberts Bay, Blackburn Bay, and Shackett Creek, offers some of the most affordable waterfront properties for boaters with easy access to the Gulf via Venice Inlet. There is also a County Boat Launch on Shackett Creek for smaller boats at Loreto Bay Access. The original Venice Post Office was located in Nokomis on Portia St.
