Siesta Key Florida

Siesta Key is very popular place to live in Sarasota, not just because of the beaches, but because of the outstanding water views, the private luxury living, the numerous outdoor activities and unbelievably beautiful, luxury homes and condos. Siesta Key’s public beach has been rated the 3rd best beach in the world.

One really cool aspect of Siesta Key is that you really don’t need a car to move around the key. Every day you will see people biking, running, rollerblading or walking on sidewalks all over the key. The environment is friendly, relaxing and beautiful, yet it offers a secluded home that many appreciate. 

Living Options

Siesta Key offers everything from small villas to sprawling estates. No matter where you choose to live you have a few options to choose from: an ocean view, a bay view and/or direct beach access. There are some neighborhoods on the key that do not have a view of the bay or the ocean, but they do have canals behind the homes that give homeowners access to the ocean. Your home buying options on Siesta Key are truly endless.


There are large condominium communities with all the amenities you could hope for and there are small communities for those that seek more privacy. Siesta Key also offers some luxurious condos that include private elevators, roof top decks and staff to take care of your boats and vehicles while you are out of town. Of course smaller condominiums are available and often it is the smaller condos that give you direct access to the beach or the water while also providing privacy.


If you are looking for a home you can choose to live right on the beach or on the water. Finding a home right on the beach is not always an easy task, but if you choose an experienced Sarasota Realtor they will find what you are looking for.  There are many typical family homes with water views, but if you drive through Siesta Key you may be shocked by some of the most stunning luxury homes you have ever seen that look over the bay, the ocean and sometimes both. There is a lot of money in Sarasota and the homes on Siesta Key are often a clear sign of how wealthy some of our residents really are.

Siesta Key is not a large barrier island but you will still see some large estates that are often surrounded by large brick walls or iron fences. Seclusion is part of the appeal of Siesta Key and this is why the rich and famous love to have a home on this breathtakingly beautiful, hidden paradise.
