Bird Key

Bird Key is a much sought-after neighborhood in Sarasota, perfectly located only 2 miles from St Armand Circle and Downtown Sarasota with its own Bird Key Yacht Club.

Welcome to Bird Key

Bird Key, one of the prestigious communities on the West coast of Florida is perfectly located between mainland Sarasota and St. Armand’s Circle/Lido Key. The 510 beautiful homes on Bird Key are evenly divided between waterfront, canal front, and garden homes. As a full-time resident of Bird Key, I am very actively involved in the real estate market in this unique neighborhood.


Bird Key is a small community with a gated community feel, even though its roads are public and it is surrounded by blue waters and palm trees – It is a 250-acre tropical island paradise.
Garden homes provide a great opportunity to live and play by the water at a fraction of the cost of a waterfront property. Waterfront homes are spectacular with their own access to the waterways.
Bird Key is only a 5-minute drive to Downtown Sarasota boasting many restaurants, Ballet, Opera, and theater. St. Armand’s Circle is also a 5-minute drive away with its many trendy shops and restaurants. Lido Beach is accessed from Armand Circle.
In addition, the award-winning Siesta Key is a short 20-minute drive south and has a number of public beaches, restaurants, shops, attractions, and wildlife.


Bird Key Yacht Club welcomes members from all over, but many are Bird Key residents. The club has boat slips, tennis courts, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and a fitness center with classes, and group activities.
Right across the Ringling Causeway at the entrance to Bird Key is Bird Key Park. This park is a popular location to fish, bike, exercise, and enjoy the sunset and is Owned and operated by the City of Sarasota Parks & Recreation District. The perfect place to stroll and catch the sunset.
