We normally reserve our Condo for our own family's use but ocassionally rent to a few select folks during the high-season winter months to help offset the rising costs of Utilities, Insurance and Real Estate taxes here in Florida. This is a NO Pets/No Smoking unit and there are No exceptions. The Condominium Owner's Assn also requires a One-month minimum rental interval in order to preserve the residential environment of our community. This is a great alternative to the "noise and chaos" often found at the "Condo/Motels" on the Island which offer daily/weekly short term rentals.

Courts (w/ball server), the Bay-side Heated Pool, the Clubhouse, Library, Fitness Center, Billiards room, etc..
Island Reef provides "First-Class" amenities in every way and there are no disappointments here.
Island Reef is also within walking distance of Three great restaurants, each unique in offerings and atmosphere and all "family-friendly". The Midnight Pass Turtle Pub is a great place to grab a quick sandwich , pizza or a beer and is frequented by many locals. "Turtles" is just beyond and offers a varied menu from Sandwiches to lunch and dinner entrees, including daily fresh fish "catches" from the Gulf. On up the road a short stroll is "Ophelia's". This is an award-winning fine dining experience that is consistently recognized by all of Sarasota as being the "most romantic" culinary experience in the area.
