About Casey Key

Casey Key is a private narrow 8-mile barrier island situated approximately 15 minutes south of Sarasota, Florida and 15 minutes north of Venice, Florida. With the island’s small population of under 400 people, Casey Key real estate offers unrivaled privacy and easy access to the best attractions and destinations that Sarasota and Venice have to offer.

This island remains one of Sarasota’s prized and hidden gems, with the sleepy and quaint town of Nokomis right across the water, and proximity to both Sarasota and Venice, Florida. It’s one of the few areas that retain an “Old Florida” feel, with a friendly and warm local community, a relative lack of manmade structures, and plenty of natural oceanside beauty.
