CASEY KEY BEACHHOUSE LEAVES A ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT!

Casey Key House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6.

A rare beachfront property! Two screened porches, master bedroom, and living room overlook a private beach. This Florida beach house, located on the exclusive north end of Casey Key, presents incredible views of sunsets and aqua waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Built in the 1940s by the owners' grandfather, this home has been extensively remodeled but has retained the charm & feel of old Florida. It is 100% solar powered as of October 2011. Feel good about where you are staying!

About Casey Key: Casey Key is an 8 mile long barrier island located on the west coast of Florida about 15 miles south of Sarasota, a cultural center. The beaches are refreshingly natural, with protected wild sea oats and mangroves providing a protective habitat for the scores of native island birds that share the island, as well as the dolphins, manatees and other aquatic wildlife living just offshore. The majority of the island is a conservation district.

Services: House cleaning is scheduled for Saturdays at 10 am.

A gas grill is provided. Gas refills for the grill are available at the corner gas station on Blackburn Point, (over the Flying Bridge) if renters desire to use it. A charcoal grill is also available.

Great Beach Getaway

We enjoyed our stay at this house on Casey Key. It has a very natural, heavily-landscaped yard, which gives privacy from some of the less naturally inclined neighbors - besides being on a wonderful beach, of course. The furniture is less than perfect, but we found that putting away some of the "extra touches" that the maids put out really improved the looks of the place. It could use some neatening up, however, with so many books just thrown up on the shelves etc. So all in all, I recommend this house but with the warning not to expect elegance, just a very nice relaxing visit.

We had the beach to ourselves. We met people strolling for shells or walking their dog, but we were the only ones sitting on the beach for two weeks with our Labrador who loves to swim. The water was full of life. We saw a manatee, sting rays, dolphins, a baby hammerhead and there were people night fishing for sharks. We really lucked out with the weather, in the 80's the first week and high 70's the second. The location was great and you can walk to Casey Key Fish House for great food or a short drive to Ophelia's Pasta or Rosebuds for Prime Rib, both vey good. We expected to be remote, but It was a short drive, 5 minutes, to Walmart or CVS or nail salons or anything you need. We drove 20 minutes to Siesta Key and the beach was gorgeous, but packed. A great restaurant in Siesta was Ophelias on the Bay, where we spent Christmas. A 30 minute drive brought us to Sarasota or Lido Key and Armand's Circle and shopping. The house was perfect for us with 3 comfortable bedrooms, all new appliances, nice bathrooms. It has a tile floor throughout which was great so we could sweep up sand we tracked in despite our rinsing in a bucket. The only area of improvement would be the inside patio and living room furniture, which was weathered and stained. Slip covers that could be washed and weatherproof plastic chairs would be a cheap and great improvement. The owner was very responsive when we emailed her with a question. We had a great vacation and would love to go back.

What a delightful, relaxing, beautiful spot! Private beach---sound of the surf all night long---walked for a mile on the beach every day for a month and rarely saw more than 10 people. A secluded beach house with all the comforts. Five minutes by car from pharmacy and grocery store. Five minutes walking from the best Fish House in south Florida. Grandchildren built awesome sand castles. Wish we could have stayed longer!!

This house is beautifully situated on a fine beach on Casey Key - however, it is a long and boring ride from the real star of the neighborhood - Sarasota - with tremendous traffic. The swimming is grand and the appliances (clothes/washer and dryer, refrigerator) are fine - the dishwasher seems suitable for about 1 1/2 people - fast, efficient, but incredibly small. The lighting for those who want to read is pathetic. TV is fine, if complicated to navigate.

It could be a charming beach house if some care went into emptying out stuffed closets and drawers where an amazing amount of detritus turns up - old towels, sheets, electronic equipment - talk about Molly Magee's closet - you are scared to open the doors and drawers. The living room furniture does not beckon one to sit on - old, musty, etc. The house needs new furniture (particularly in the living room and porch which could be wonderful). New pillows much needed, mattresses as well. For the money, it is not a good value.
Owner's Response: This renter was obviously mismatched to our beloved beach house, advertised as casual and away-from-it-all. When she first complained, 4 days into her stay, I was indeed surprised. We never have bad reviews and Casey Key is a very special spot. We responded immediately. Her complaints were numerous and some fixable; we shipped overnight 2 new lamps and a standing lamp, we sent in the housekeeper to re-organize the pots and pans, etc.

We have had the furniture recovered within the past 2 years and constantly update. For example, the kitchen was remodeled in the fall of 2011. We made every effort to preserve the old Florida feel of this house built by our grandfather in 1940, and so it is that the modern dishwasher- a Swedish water saver- is innocuously hidden in the original cabinets, pulls out like a drawer, and is perfectly adequate.

But this renter also threatened to write a bad review unless we gave her back some money. We did not. Therefore, I was not surprised to see she posted a bad review.

This renter did not find the house online. She heard glowing reports about it from the November renters who live in her home town. They have already booked it for February 2013.

Right on private beach. Miles away from public beach. Nestled among private residences. Modern home with all conveniences. Quick response friendly caretakers available to address any possible problem that might arise. On North end right off Blackburn Pt road. Minutes by car to Sarasota. Would definitely stay there again.
