Located 15 miles South of Sarasota, Casey Key is bordered to the West by the Gulf of Mexico and to the East by Little Sarasota Bay. Just an hour’s drive South from Tampa, this lush, secluded island stretches a mere eight miles between Siesta Key and the Island of Venice and also runs parallel to the communities of South Sarasota, Osprey and Nokomis.
White sandy beaches and turquoise blue waters await you in this Gulf shore island paradise. Access to the public beach area is available only near the southern tip of the island. Small B&Bs and property rentals with private beaches are offered for rent near the South bridge; also on the South end is Nokomis Beach, a large white sand public beach popular with locals.
Restaurants, cafes and bars are not allowed on Casey Key. (In fact there are no stoplights and no high rises on Casey Key either!) However, there are local eateries located at the West end of the North bridge, replete with 175 feet of deep-water dockage for patrons’ use. The Intracoastal Waterway is just to the East of Casey Key, which also offers opportunities for boating. Boat charters are available from the marina for deep-sea fishing in the Gulf and fishing gear and bait are available from the North Jetty Fish Camp on the Northern bank of the inlet.
On this island stretch you’ll find residential options that range from sleek and modern to quaint and historic to absolutely opulent! From well priced waterfront land parcels to historic bungalows, waterfront cottages and well-appointed estates, this private and prestigious location offers primarily single family homes.
With approximately 600 residents, this is the place where the rich and famous relax. Gulf-to-Bay property could be purchased for $20,000 in the 1950’s; today real estate on Casey Key averages in the millions, and can easily range up to $25 million for a small estate. Casey Key is truly the largest gem of southwest Florida’s glittering Gulf coast. This exclusive island paradise offers tropical remoteness juxtaposed with the close accessibility of both Venice and Sarasota.
Priced from $1,649,000 to $1,650,000.
