Here we’ve listed some excellent options for those visiting town or locals looking for a staycation. Don’t forget to tell them The Scout Guide sent you when you book your stay!

Captiva Beach Resort (6772 Sarasea Circle). Located on Siesta Key, just a short walk to the white sands of Crescent beach, this small resort offers laid back vibes. Enjoy the family-friendly courtyard, complete with a swimming pool, table tennis, boce, and BBQ grills.

Gasparilla Inn & Club (500 Palm Avenue, Boca Grande). Escape from it all on Gasparilla Island, just south of Sarasota.

Waterline Villas & Marina (5325 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach). Marina views abound in this boaters paradise. Recently renovated, this sea-inspired hotel is ideal for those looking to be close to top-notch restaurants and bars..

The Bali Hai Beachfront Resort & Spa (6900 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach). A relaxing oasis with its very own white sand beach, reserved exclusively for resort guests. If you’re looking to truly unwind, indulge in a massage directly on the beach.

The Sarasota Modern (1290 Boulevard of the Arts). Minimalist, chic decor in the Arts District and just minutes from multiple performing art venues and museums. Lounge by one of their three stunning pools while enjoying a fresh juice from the pool bar or head to the beach on their complimentary VW bus beach shuttle. 

Casey Key Resorts (Beachfront – 221 Casey Key Road, Nokomis or Mainland – 1660 South Tamiami Trail, Osprey). Whether you opt for a beachfront bungalow in Nokomis or boutique hotel stay in Osprey, complete with tiki bar and pool, Casey Key Resorts offer the quintessential fun in the sun Florida vacation accommodations.
