Casey Key stretches eight miles between Siesta Key and the Island of Venice and also runs parallel to the communities of South Sarasota, Osprey and Nokomis. This secluded island on Florida’s west coast is predominantly residential. Its own sandy shore… although…there are two public beaches, Nokomis and North Jetty Beach, at the south end.

A single road winds its way down Casey Key the spine of the island where at some points the width averages less than a quarter mile. Often the road on Casey Key is barely more than one lane wide, where a leafy branch or hibiscus brushes a passing car… and, believe it or not… there are no traffic lights!

From the bridge it’s possible to head north on Casey Key Road and catch a glimpse of massive homes nestled in wooded natural beauty with a sandy strip of shoreline that’s all their own. The road eventually turns private on Casey Key where it’s quite difficult to turn around. From Blackburn Point on Casey Key southward, there’s another four miles of monolithic dwellings featuring private cabanas and beaches on the Gulf and mega boats with docks on the Intra-coastal waterway.

 With only 600 residents, on Casey Key this is the place where the rich and famous relax. 

Horror fiction novelist Stephen King has one of the priciest homes on Casey Key Island. King’s winter home which he purchased in April of 2001, is currently valued at approximately $25 million with three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a swimming pool, and 6,817 square feet. If you’ve read his latest novel, “Duma Key”… it’s literally based on Casey Key Island with reference to many of the actual shops, restaurants and galleries in Sarasota and other nearby keys.
Small B&Bs and property rentals with private beaches are offered for rent on Casey Key near the south bridge where Nokomis Beach is popular with locals. Although the sand is coarse, Casey Key offers privacy, solitude and encounters with Nature.
