Sarasota FL's Siesta Key, Casey Key and Manasota Key With a Side of Coconut Pie.

Real Estate Agent

Toured a bit of Sarasota last week with Kathleen Herron (@SarasotaDream); specifically Siesta Key, Casey Key and Manasota Key. Kathleen and Nick Herron have been living on and around Casey Key for many years, so they know more than I could ever remember about Sarasota's beautiful barrier isles.

Sarasota and Siesta Key, Casey Key, and Manasota Key are world famous for their beaches and waterways, not to mention their unique and mouth-watering restaurants. Kathleen and I ate at Lock 'n Key. Coconut pie to die for! See the photo in the slideshow.

Delicious day!

Thank you again Kathleen, for everything!

My parents bought a home on Manasota Key 12 years ago when their boat broke down.  Great island.  They still love visiting there and they live in Naples.  It's just a nice place to sit peacefully and enjoy nature.  

Thanks for putting a smile on my face when I read this. Great area to highlight.

All the best, Michelle

Sarasota is a beautiful place.  My son was married at Siesta Key last November.

Hi Dan, yes, it is especially a nice place to live!

Michelle, thanks for stopping by. Yes, the barrier islands of Sarasota are so peaceful and beautiful!

Hi Pat, a Siesta wedding. Bet it was beautiful.

Kathy, that pie was something else. It's also one of the reasons my pants are tight this week.

Hi Susie,

Looks like you both had a great time. You have to love Sarasota. A gorgeous community. When I lived on the other side of the state, I would often visit there. Great little Picnik slide show. I sent you a reply today about Picnik, should have read your post first, LOL.
