Florida natives who love the water and the quiet privacy of Casey Key but also love to drive to Venice or Sarasota to go to the opera, out to dinner, and so much more. We love having our children and grandchildren down for family gatherings. There's a new scene everyday at the beach, so we never tire of walking the beach, swimming in the crystal clear water, or just sitting out.

This is a unique setting. A selcuded private tropical paradise minutes away from the high life.
This is a true gem. Its in the secluded area of Casey Key and is a special property. Full gulf to bay with wonderful natural landscaping.
The master bedroom has views of the gulf and the back bedroom has amazing views of the bay. The 3rd bedroom worked great for us with 3 kids under 11.
There is an open kitchen and great sitting areas. The outdoor areas are really amazing. You have your own private beach (we did see one person all week). There is a dock on the bay where we saw fish jumping and dolphins. There's a large picnic table under large trees near the dunes. Its a great spot for lunch or just sitting in the shade on a sunny day.
We had an amazing time and really enjoyed this property.
We stayed at the Casey Key House last week, and absolutely loved it. I was down there with kids on a cycling training mission. The road riding from this location was excellent. It was very easy to link rides using bike paths and roads with wide shoulders.
After our rides, the beach in the front yard (on the Gulf) and the intracoastal waterway in the back yard (that's right... water front AND back!) provided endless opportunity for the kids to sunbathe, fish, kayak, swim, etc. The kids loved it! You could not ask for nicer sunsets (or a nicer place to have morning coffee!).
The house is not a mansion or museum. It is a real house where a real family raised their children and probably created many fond memories. Being a landlord myself and an engineer, I could identify some work that needed to be done, but nothing that affected our enjoyment of the property. That said, the house is spacious, well-furnished, fully functional, comfortable, and clean. With teenagers, it was great to have 3 bathrooms! The pictures accurately represent the house. We had everything we needed, and did not have any issues, but the owners met us at the house to welcome us, and made it clear that they were available if we needed anything.
We loved it, and will absolutely return next year if it is available.
Casey Key is a very private and quiet island located between Venice and Sarasota which each has all kinds of cultual and sporting activities. The home is at the north end of Casey Key on a private road right on the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway or bay as we call it.
