This is the perfect beach house getaway. Remember those carefree summer days along the shore? This Casey Key cottage allows you to relive those days year-round. Run barefoot along the sandy beach as the sun rises, welcoming you to another day in paradise. Take your coffee out to the deck and watch pelicans dive on baitfish while dolphins swim by in the cerulean waters, lapping rhythmically along the sand. Take the paddleboards down to the Gulf for an exhilarating experience among the waves and sun or go "bayside" through the deeded bay access, exploring and fishing along the mangrove islands. Dryman Bay has a rich array of wildlife that has flourished for thousands of years. The saltwater, heated, beachside pool and surrounding raised patio is the perfect setting for your tropical lunch, served under the shade of colorful beach umbrellas. Later the kids can play putt-putt golf while you take in a good book or snooze in your hammock, strung between swaying palm trees. This is the lifestyle you've been waiting for. The home is built on massive beams of solid old-growth hardwoods raised 14 feet above mean high tide, giving you the elevation needed on the beach. The exposed, vaulted ceilings along with the brick, wood-burning fireplace, accent the charm and cottage feel of this unique Casey Key residence. There is plenty of room for family and guests with the home's four bedrooms and five full baths, along with ample gathering spaces. Work from home in this enviable separate office that overlooks the Gulf. However you decide to spend the day, it is always crowned by enjoying a fabulous beachfront sunset from this private slice of heaven.
