Waterfront Homes on Casey Key
Casey Key, a barrier island off the coast of Sarasota, has kept it's quiet "old Florida" charm. Residents who relocate from all over the globe, enjoy privacy and a truly Island lifestyle, yet so close to all the modern convenience. Waterfront Homes on Casey Key are, without any doubt, the most luxurious properties on Florida's Gulf Coast.
This lush tropical island has only one winding road which is in certain areas close to the Gulf beach, in other areas close to the bay, and in some locations right in the center of the island. However, there is one spot where the island is so small that you can see the Gulf of Mexico on one side and little Sarasota Bay on the other side of the road.
Remote but not too remote
Casey Key is connected to he mainland with 2 bridges. The historic Blackburn Point swing bridge, opened the year 1926, is still connecting the northern end of the island with the mainland. The bridge has only one lane, and when opened for boats, it may take a few minutes to get on or off the island.
Right next to the bridge is the famous Casey Key Fish House and Tiki Bar. That is a nice place to hang out and watch the sunset.
A modern drawbridge connect the island at the south-end, where Nokomis Beach is located. This bridge is so high that it is only open when sailboats or huge powerboats show up.
Almost Zero Commercial Activity
There is very little commercial activity on the island. There are a few tiny hotels and motels located at the south-end of the island, but they are all little cottages or small two or tri-plexes. No high risers, shops, or restaurants are operating on the key, and, according to the current building code, they will never be permitted.
Casey Key is a luxurious waterfront paradise with deep water boat docks and easy access to the Gulf of Mexico. Some Casey Key luxury waterfront homes are Gulf to Bay properties on over an acre land.
Many luxury waterfront homes are enveloped by tropical splendor, ensuring an exclusive island lifestyle yet close to all Sarasota and Venice have to offer.
The historic walking town of Venice with boutique shopping and gourmet restaurants is only minutes away. Downtown Sarasota, the cultural hub on Florida's West Coast, can also be reached in 30 minutes.
Three major international airports, Sarasota International, Tampa International, and Fort Myers International, are connecting the island in the sun with the rest of the world. However, a 90-minute drive would get you already to Fort Myers International, the furthest away airport.
