Sarasota’s Spice Bay Neighborhood on Siesta Key Nears Sell-Out

by Arelys Alexander

The draw of island living is evident in the thousands of visitors that flock to the Sarasota Keys to enjoy the glorious rays and coastal breezes of a typical Southwest Florida day.  Even if you live in mainland Sarasota, residents still escape to the island paradise of the Keys for a day of relaxation and entertainment.

If you long to live with your feet up and a cool drink in hand every day, and not just for a short vacation, you’ll have to stake your claim on the one model home or one of two exclusive homesites left in the intimate, luxury gated community of Spice Bay.

Why Spice Bay

Spice Bay in Sarasota FL

Spice Bay is located on beautiful Sarasota Bay in Siesta Key, an 8-mile long, crescent-shaped barrier island. It features just 14 home sites with West-Indies style Estate homes surrounded by majestic oaks, lush native palms, and tropical plants.  It is conveniently located just moments away from Siesta Key Beach, which has been named the best beach in America not once, but twice, by the legendary “Dr. Beach”, casual and fine dining, and a variety of shopping destinations.  Cross the bridge to the mainland and you’ll have easy access to Sarasota’s many urban amenities, including the Theater and Arts District, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, and the Mall at University Town Center, among other attractions.

The Somerset
