Learn more about Bird Key, Sarasota

Located between downtown Sarasota and the famous St. Armand’s Circle, Bird Key is an exclusive island neighborhood with magnificent homes. This is probably the shortest and most precise description one can make. A total of 500 homes are on Bird Key. More than 300 of the homes have deep water docks, water access or at least a spectacular bay view. 

Bird Key is a gated island community

The gated island community is connected to downtown Sarasota by the new fixed-span “John Ringling Causeway” Bridge. The location of the key is more than ideal. Bird Key is the first island after crossing that bridge while driving towards Lido Key.

Therefore, the residents are just a few minutes away from the attractions and the excitement Sarasota has to offer. Besides that, the beaches of Lido Key, Longboat Key, and Siesta Key are also close by. Also, don’t forget the St. 

Armand’s Circle, with a wonderful choice of restaurants with European and South American cuisine, bars, ice cream parlors, and shopping opportunities. Just make a left turn when leaving the community, and 2 minutes later you are hitting the next key where the St. Armand’s on Lido Key is located.

Extravagant  Waterfront Mansions 

Of course, the prime locations are on the water. However, those non-waterfront homeowners enjoy at least a nice view of a tropical garden. They really don’t need to pull their hairs out if their home is not directly on a canal. With an island that small there is always water close by.

Bird Key is a heaven for boaters

Can you imagine why Bird Key is called a “boaters’ heaven”? Well,  once you had a closer look at the island you will understand why “boaters’ heaven” is the best description of that tiny island. 

From the causeway, you can already see the exclusive Bird Key Yacht Club. It is huge. This Yacht Club offers a complete club experience to it’ s members. Members can dine, play tennis, or go swimming.  The club provides also plenty of boat slips for members who are boaters but don’t have a home for a boat in front of their house. 

Bird Key is an intimate enclave

So, Bird key is an intimate enclave of its own. You can not compare this island with any other key on Florida’s Gulf Coast because it is really different and not considered a barrier island. The size of the island, the location, the number of waterfront properties, the price tags on those properties … everything is somehow unique. You also won’t see any high rise condos here. The neighborhood is make up entirely of single family mansions. No commercial activity is permitted on the key. How beautiful is that?

Who lives on such a unique island?

Of course, birds and pelicans live on Bird Key as well, but there are not as many as there used to be anymore. So, who else lives there? Besides a mix of professionals, local doctors, lawyers and retirees and even a few celebrities.
