Owner info

About the owner: Please note: We do not want "renters." This is our vacation home, on one of the most beautiful and private islands in the world. It is not palatial, but family built, owned, and carefully maintained. We want "guests" that appreciate the special offering of such a property, and who will take care of it as though their own, value the gift that it is to us, and find themselves in the extraordinary hospitality of the house. Read carefully the reviews: this is a place for people who view themselves as "guests," and not "renters."

Why the Owner Chose Osprey, FL, USA:
No words describe the location adequately. Check photos or research Casey Key independently.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is exclusive and very private, though accessible to virtually any kind of activity. Inspiration is as natural as breathing on Casey Key.
