Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club

Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club is a deed-restricted waterfront community in Osprey which further enriches selections from among Sarasota homes for sale. Developed just west of U.S. 41 and the Oscar Shcherer State Park between the cities of Sarasota and Venice, Southbay can easily qualify in listings of the finest communities in Southwest Florida.

This community has superb in-house facilities which can readily match those found in its neighboring premier Sarasota real estate developments. Moreover, it welcomes residents of all ages, making it an ideal choice for retirees and growing families.

Outstanding marina plus other assets

Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club

Anchor to its development is a seven-acre yacht harbor with a deep-water marina for 175 boat slips. Well-maintained, these assets are considered as among the best community-owned water-based facilities on the west coast of Florida. This harbor allows easy sailing to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico.

Play is as enjoyable in Southbay’s four tennis courts, wherein alternatives are provided in two sports clay and two asphalt surfaces. Overlooking the Southbay marina is a clubhouse with a ballroom and catering kitchen. Further burnishing the attraction of this Osprey community in listings of Sarasota homes for sale are a 50-foot heated swimming pool, a modern exercise facility, shuffleboard courts, and a library.

The development also has its own Lookout Point Park which affords views of the community’s marina and Dryman Bay as well as glimpses of Casey Key. Though predominantly residential, this eight-mile long island opposite Southbay, is host to two fine public beaches—Nokomis and North Jetty Park. Land access to Casey Key is convenient via Blackburn Point Road just a short distance north of Southbay.

Abundant local amenities

Excellent neighborhoods surround Southbay, one of which is the gated golf community of The Oaks. The country club at the Oaks offers membership for golfing as well as dining privileges.

This Osprey locality is likewise served by the Southbay Shopping Center with a Dollar Tree store and a nearby hair studio and spa, among other establishments. Major banks, such as Trustco and First America, also have branches in this locality.

Top-rated schools cover the Southbay location, including such choices as Laurel Nokomis Elementary and Middle, Venice Senior High, and the Pine View School.
