About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6. Utilities included.

Our 2 or 3 bedroom vacation house was updated in 2012 with new flooring, plumbing, etc. Designed for open living, unique glass walls slide into pockets to reveal the lanai (partially-covered porch) with a tropical garden inside a large screened enclosure. This is secure for small children and pets, and allows us to leave the sliders and windows open all day and night. In addition, there’s a private outdoor sitting area facing south.

House amenities include GE whole-house water purification system, central AC, ceiling fans, cat flap entry door, 2 TVs, office with bundled FIOS internet and Wifi, laundry room, ADT electronic security, wood-burning fireplace, weekly gardener service, and trash pickup. Orange, lime and calamondin trees on the property. Utilities are included in the rental price.

Southbay is a deed-restricted non-gated community with its own clubhouse and marina located on the Intracoastal waterway across from Casey Key. Clubhouse amenities include tennis courts, large waterfront heated pool, weight room and library just 2 blocks away from our house along a landscaped greenway.

Three restaurants are within 1-mile radius, including the waterfront Casey Key Fish House, our favorite for outdoor sunset dining. A convenient store and CVS drug store are walking distance from our location.

About alex

Danna and Alex are retired, and keep the Osprey house for vacation use, renting it some months. Its furnished with personal items and art, as well as the amenities expected in an upscale home.

alex purchased this house in 2012

Why alex chose Florida South West

After searching all over Florida, we wanted the culturally-rich Sarasota area, near water and beaches. Our Southbay community club facilities, such as the large heated pool, give us more recreational opportunities than we could get on our own. Our grandchild can walk or bike safely to and from any location in our complex without worry. For our cats (and infants) the screened-in garden and lanai provide a unique and beautiful play area.

What makes this house unique

Tropical garden inside a screened enclosure. Secure for small kids and pets. Utilities and gardener paid for by homeowner. Large heated pool at our clubhouse.
