Nokomis Homes for Sale 

We are excited to share Nokomis with you. But first, how do you pronounce it and what does it mean? Nokomis is pronounced:

NA-ko-mis

and it is believed to be named after the grandmother of Hiawatha immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem – “The Story of Hiawatha”.


As always, location matters and Nokomis Florida is a small beautiful town on the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota County. It is south of Sarasota, and north of Venice – the best of both worlds. It is located between I-75 and Tamiami Trail which is Route 41.

The first settler was Jesse Knight who arrived with his family in 1868. He established one of the largest cattle herds in southwest Florida.

The jetties were constructed in 1937 and the inter-coastal waterway was built in the 1960’s. The Legacy Bike Trail opened in 2008.
