Bay Isles Real Estate for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

Bay Isles

No other residential community beats Bay Isles in terms of size and diversity of homes for sale in Longboat Key. This property covers 725 acres, occupying about 50 percent of the whole southern half of the 12-mile long island including most of its widest point where the town center and commercial hub are likewise located.

Bay Isles, a project of the prolific Sarasota developer Arvida Corp., started taking shape in the mid-1970s. Essentially, it was formed as a residential component for Arvida’s Longboat Key Club’s Harbourside resort development. The facilities of the private and exclusive resort club—principally a 27-hole golf course and a 291-slip marina—are part of the template around which the Bay Isles community was woven.

The residents of Bay Isles can access these facilities with a club membership in the resort. Already bundled with ownership of a home in this community is membership to the Bay Isles Beach Club, a gulf-side private beach just across Gulf of Mexico Drive west of the property.

Microcosm of Island Homes
