Sarasota Waterfront CommunitiesSarasota has long been known around the world for its award-winning beaches, crystal-clear gulf waters and a constant flow of boating, fishing and sailing activities on the waterfront The barrier islands of Bird Key, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, Lido Key and Casey Key are not only pristine areas, each with it’s own unique lifestyle attributes, they are also home to some of the most luxurious waterfront homes. Downtown Sarasota, itself, is also home to every imaginable housing style from modest townhomes and condos to elegant waterfront homes and estates.

AARP Magazine identified the Sarasota Florida area, known as “Florida’s SunCoast,” as #4 on its list of “Best Places to Reinvent Your Life.” Barbara Corcoran, a noted real estate expert, ranked Sarasota as the “Best Place to Buy a Home Right Now” on a recent Today Show video. The Natural Resources Defense Council placed Sarasota Florida at No. 4 on its list of Small “Smarter Cities” in recognition of the quality of its air and water as well as its environmental standards and programs like green building, green space and recycling. And not long ago, Money Magazine called Sarasota the “Ultimate Beach Town” with 35 miles of sun-kissed beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, over 200 sunny days a year and an average year-round temperature of 71°F.

The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and gorgeous sunsets over both the Gulf and Sarasota Bay just add to the appeal that Sarasota Florida waterfront communities offer.

As the Arts and Cultural Center of Southwestern Florida, Sarasota provides an almost unbelievable variety of arts and cultural venues including our own opera, ballet and symphony orchestras as well as the famous Ringling Museum or Art.

For the business owner or entrepreneur, Sarasota and Sarasota County offer a business climate that is as warm and friendly as our weather. From relocation and expansion assistance to workforce development and financial incentives, Sarasota County has earned rave reviews from the business community for fostering strategic alliances between the public and private sectors. The local Chamber of Commerce reports that a record number of companies have recently relocated or expanded in Sarasota County, adding hundreds of jobs and millions in capital investment to the local economy.

Some waterfront communities such as the SouthBay Yacht & Racquet Club have deep-water dockage.  Homes in other waterfront communities like Sorrento Shores are on navigable canals or directly on the Intercoastal waterway.  For those who enjoy both water sports and golf, there are even Sarasota waterfront communities which offer both including Longboat Key with its Longboat Key Club courses.

With all the charm of a southern town with the conveniences of a big city, the Sarasota waterfront communities offer every conceivable lifestyle option you could imagine or desire.
