Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Osprey

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath 'West of the Trail' condo! The natural maple cabinets and quartz counters maintain the light and open feel that is a highlight of this unique home, designed for sub-tropical living by Frank Folsom Smith of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Updated in 2010, this condo includes new furnishings, from pots and pans to 40' HD TV. The dramatic design includes 18' cathedral ceilings in each room, a central open-air atrium, and sliding glass doors that open onto decks from the living room, kitchen, and each bedroom. Two swimming pools, tennis courts, and an exercise facility are available within the complex.

Nearby Blackburn Point Park provides easy access for boats and kayaks to the intracoastal waterway. Restaurants, shopping, hiking, birding, and golf are all available nearby. Sarasota, known for its museums, symphony, opera, and the white sands of Siesta Key beach, is a few miles to the north, while Venice, with its quaint shops and miles of unspoiled beaches, is to the south.

About The Owner

We are native New Englanders who are growing tired of fighting the winter snow and ice! We hope someday to be able to join the ranks of the snowbirds who trade winter weather for Florida sunshine. For the time being, we're sharing our tropical getaway with you.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with with the natural beauty and glorious weather of the Sarasota area after a few short vacation visits. Osprey felt like the perfect location for us, because of its convenient access to both the cultural events of Sarasota and the quiet, natural beauty of Venice. Pine Run is a gem, with its tropical garden setting and its proximity to the Gulf.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is filled with sunshine that streams through its large windows and sliding glass doors. At the same time, the design and surrounding foliage provide complete privacy for the kitchen and living room, as well as the rear deck and central atrium. We love to cross over the intracoastal waterway and bay to Casey Key to enjoy the waterfront restaurants or to stroll (or run) along N. Casey Key Road, which winds among beautiful homes and gives expansive views of the Gulf. Just about anything else you could want is a short drive away.

Beautifully-appointed condo in special setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are spending the winter (January through March) in this lovely condo, and we love it! It is modern, clean, tastefully furnished, light and airy with an open floor plan and with several outdoor spaces. The layout of this unit is such that there is privacy between the bedrooms and the great room. The vaulted ceilings and ceiling fans make it feel spacious. Bathrooms and kitchen have been beautifully redone. Granite countertops in kitchen, which is well-appointed for those who like to cook. The owners have been very helpful with questions and suggestions. The Pine Run community is quiet and friendly, with lush vegetation. The perfectly-manicured tennis courts (4) are hardly ever busy. The pools (2) are heated to a perfect temperature and maintained. I have been using the workout room, which is small but in great shape and usually empty. Just down the road is The Casey Key Fish House and Tiki Bar - great food in an island atmosphere, and live music on weekend afternoons. This is a great area for bicycling and kayaking (with a launch just down the road into South Bay). Great spot for birdwatching and walks out to Casey Key.

The units are designed so that everyone has a lot of privacy. Pine Run is a quiet oasis, but still within a short drive to Venice and Sarasota and all of the Sarasota County beaches. The residents here are friendly and helpful. You will feel right at home here and be very comfortable.

Lovely stop for the winter

  • 5 of 5

We liked this newly refurbished and redecorated 2 bedroom condo wit private outdoor patio and screened lanai. We found it tastefully decorated with a great room/dining/kitchen area that had an airy peaked ceiling that gave us a great open feeling. New lighting & appliances made it bright & cheery. We liked its location in a complex with mature landscaping. We liked it so much we want to live there, too!! We highly recommend this condo to anyone who wants to spend the winter in the Sarasota/Osprey area.

Owner's Response: Our first renters were wonderful and gracious guests. We're pleased they enjoyed their stay and look forward to being neighbors with them! Now our condo is available for you to enjoy. One correction: pets aren't permitted due to our allergies.
