Idyllic Beachfront in Unique Casey Key
Set in lush tropical greenery including palm trees, sea grapes, and Hibiscus plants, just a few backyard steps to a white sand beach and spectacular sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico.
Our home features an oversized deck, ideal for reading, sunbathing or simply relaxing on your own private beach access.
With homes as fascinating as the people who occupy them, Casey Key is one of the most prestigious addresses in Florida. It is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico on the west and Little Sarasota Bay on the east. Just minutes from Sarasota and Venice, Casey Key offers the comfort of luxury living conveniently located near world-class amenities. Dense landscaping, including mature live oaks and majestic banyans, engulfs the key. Weaving along the narrow, winding Casey Key Road, one quickly realizes this is a truly special and magnificent place.
At the south tip of Casey Key is the popular North Jetty Park. Relax on the fine white sand covering the park's gulf-side beach, then take a short walk east to watch the pod of dolphins that frequently cavort in the bay waters.
Just on the other side of the island's two bridges there are several waterfront restaurants to toss back a drink and enjoy seafood that could very well have been pulled from the Gulf of Mexico just hours before.
Our home comes with 4 bikes and a sea going kayak to fully enjoy everything its unique location has to offer.
**Please note: This property is on an island with "green belt" agreement with the state of Florida to preserve its character and the environment. We do not host gatherings of any kind--weddings, reunions, college breaks, etc. If you are planning such a gathering we are happy to recommend alternative venues better suited to them.

Like home but with great Casey Key beach
This was our third consecutive summer visit. With so many fantastic possibilities within 3rdhome, that says it all. The owners are gracious hosts and staying at their home has the feeling coming to visit close friends. Casey Key is a few hundred feet from mainland Florida and all its resources, but yet is quiet and secluded, with virtually unoccupied beach and calming vista.”
Gem Hidden In Plain Sight
Mission: find a secluded high quality beach location on short notice in competition with 10's of millions of east coast vacation goers, Must be easily reachable by air, with my friends at Southwest Airlines, preferred. We weren't familiar with Casey Key before, and the host describes it well, but this secluded bit of paradise is a few hundred yards from mainland, A little over an hour from Tampa or Fort Myers airport and less from Sarasota, Day 1: saw a couple walking on the small main road No one recognizable on the beach, left or right. Days 2-6: pretty much the same. Probably why the well known celebrities have their marvelous mansions here. Seems they get grander the further north you go, until sadly, the public is no more welcome to continue to gawk. We know it is "location, location, location", but the owners make this stay just like a a friend's home without requisite small talk. The home is emmaculate and well maintained. The common areas are large and comfortably appointed. In the heart of the floor plan is a very well equipped and designed kitchen. Has a very inviting feel. We don't bring pets but the owners seem to be animal lovers. The lovely travertine floors are pet friendly. Also the home is very accommodating to those with limited mobility: one step from the street and one down to the deck overlooking the beach. Two main bedrooms are large and the third best enjoyed by children. For the sake of balance, I would say that the bedrooms could use a bit of pizzazz and a ceiling fan. Owners aren't slaves to electronic devices: there are no clocks or Tv's in the bedrooms which I am sure was not an oversight. The grounds is a mini botanical garden, and seem designed to give subtle, even flirtacious views of the gulf from the home. A short path wends through the sea grapes to the small but well-situated deck. The landscape barrier provides both protection from sea surges but also absolute privacy and security. Hannibal and his mount couldn't get through. The beach is first rate: clean, sandy, gradual and deserted. Sand is not as white or water as clear and emerald green as the panhandle, but mesmerizingly beautiful. The home has all sorts of sport and game equipment. Location is a few hundred feet from the bridge and an eccentric and delicious fish restaurant.. The street is pitch black at night, to be friendly to the sea turtles...one of whom visited last night. We hope visiting will be a custom for many years to come. Mark and Jan Wise ”
