Item Description

Casa Mar Resort

One week stay, two bedroom condo, at the Casa Mar Resort, directly on the beach in Siesta Key (Sarasota), FL, on the warm, tranquil Gulf of Mexico. 120 feet from the condo front door to Siesta Beach, what has long been considered one of the finest white sand beaches in North America by the Travel Channel, and was formally voted by the National Healthy Beaches Campaign as America’s #1 Beach in 2011 and acknowledged as a top beach annually by  Truly a tropical paradise.  View breathtaking sunsets nightly out over the Gulf waters extending to the horizon. Maybe you will be able to glimpse the vaunted “green flash,” a rare optical phenomenon and subject of some maritime lore, as the sun’s golden glow disappears below the waterline. Website:

The complex has two heated swimming pools, tennis court, classic shuffleboard courts, beach volleyball, High Speed Internet, a book library and DVD library.  The two bedroom condo unit has a fully equipped kitchen, Cable Television, a Smart TV for Netflix and other programming services, Blu-ray Player, and WIFI availability.

Casa Mar is minutes away from all of Sarasota’s recreational and cultural attractions.  … dine at fine restaurants of great cultural diversity in the area , or spend an evening at the theatre, symphony, ballet or opera.  … over 30 excellent public golf courses in the area. …spend the day fishing or boating on the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  From Casa Mar it is 150 minutes to the amusing world of Disney …a 60 minutes drive  to Tampa attractions (historic Ybor City, Tampa Bay Rays, Buccaneers, and Lightning sports events) … a little over one hour’s drive to Fort Myers.  Follow your Red Sox in Gulf Coast Florida.  Choose your time such that you catch the Red Sox at the Rays August 7, 8, or 9, or September 11, 12, or 13.  The trek is only an hour’s drive away in St. Petersburg.  Check the 2020 National Hockey League schedule when it becomes available.  There will be Tampa Bay Lightning games in Tampa beginning in early October.  Too early to tell but maybe the Bruins will be there.  See the wonderful statue of Saint (to us old time Bruins fans) Phil Esposito, a founding influence of hockey in Gulf Coast Florida, right outside the hockey arena.
