Worldschooling is on the rise. Families packing up and traveling, kids learning as they go. Not all of us desire to uproot our lives completely, and yet we can adapt worldschool ideas to our own families, right where we are.
“It was our second stay in the Sleepy Sandpiper and it was like coming home. We love Alexandra´s house and we enjoyed our vacation in this private and quiet location. A few modifications have been done since last year. For us it´s the absolutely perfect place to spend our family holiday and for sure we will come back.”
I have enjoyed Sleepy Sandpiper more than once and plan to enter this quiet neighborhood home again. The nearby Gulf calls my name as well as Pop’s Ferry for delicious seafood and a beautiful view. Shopping is nearby for convenience.
It is close to Sarasota and not too far from Tampa for nearby excursions to the Dali Museum or perhaps Ringling Museum. I believe you will enjoy the comfort of the Sleepy Sandpiper.
Wonderful accommodations! Clean, several amenities provided. Perfect for a family or in our case two couples. Communication with Alexandra was excellent. Loved having the laundry on site. Easy walk to beach and ice cream shop! Really enjoyed our stay here.
Casey Key is home to those who bought modest beach cottages decades ago and those who have built gulf-to-bay mansions.
Stephen King is one of Casey Key’s most famous (infamous?) residents. His home is at the very northern end of the island.
While Stephen King is involved in supporting the broader Sarasota community, his publicity appearances are uncommon. If you are in the Sarasota area in March, you’ll have a chance to meet him at Bookstore1 on March 15, 2017.
“Stephen King, one of the best-selling authors of all time, will sign copies of his newest book “End of Watch” at 2 p.m. March 15. King divides his time between homes in Maine and on Casey Key.
“The store said that King will sign only copies of “End of Watch” and those copies must be purchased at Bookstore1. Books went on sale Feb. 20. At the time of purchase, each customer will receive a place-in-line ticket to be presented at the door the day of the event.
We loved the Sleepy Sandpiper! Alexandra was the perfect host, thinking of all the little things for a great stay, including beach towels, chairs and kid’s beach toys! Not to mention that her communication was excellent! The home was exactly what we needed – enough space for me and my husband, 2 kids and my parents with room to spare. It’s close to everything and even just a short walk to the beach! Lovely trip and we would so love to come back!
Experience a bit of Sarasota’s Scottish heritage at the Sarasota Highland Games, February 3rd – 4th, 2017!
The event kicks off [Friday] with a ceilidh, a traditional Celtic party. The next day, kilted Scotsmen compete in feats of strength like the caber toss and stone throw, while the rest of us can gather with our clan—be it Wallace, Maxwell, Ross or otherwise—and nosh on meat pies and sausage rolls to the seductive sounds of the bagpipes.
