Casey Key is a barrier island that is 8 miles long and 300 yards wide. There are approximately 600 residents on Casey Key. Casey Key is located about 60 miles south of Tampa, Florida.

In 1991 long before Stephen King purchased the home, property records show that the previous owner had a rectangular 544 square-foot pool installed, a spa, and a 1,173 square-foot patio. Property records also show that since Stephen King has owned the home, he added solar panels in 2002, a privacy wall in 2006, a new dock & pier in 2012, and the aforementioned tennis court.

Zillow estimates the value of the home at $9.3 million, as of February of 2019. In the immediate neighborhood, a home is currently listed for sale for $3.5 million. According to local MLS service, Michael Saunders & Company, there are 49 properties for sale on Casey Key. The most expensive home is selling for $14,000,000.

Over the recent months, a real-life horror has crept up on Casey Key, and most of the Florida's Gulf beaches. Known as red tide, these algal blooms rarely pose a risk to humans, however, this red tide outbreak was much more severe. In 2018, a 26-foot whale shark, 16 dolphins, and thousands upon thousands of fish were fatally wounded by this aquatic menace. Some beach-goers had experienced breathing problems and eye irritation, which forced officials to close down many beaches.

Before modern celebrities like Stephen King arrived, Casey Key was linked to a nautical celebrity of sorts. Casey Key is named after Captain John Charles Casey, who helped map the area for The National Geodetic Survey, then known as the U.S. Coast Geodetic Survey. A historical map of Florida from 1856 shows the name Casey's Pass was used instead of Casey Key. Maps after 1856 were updated to the name to Casey's Key. Casey Key was also once known as "The Treasure Island" because of treasure believed to be buried there.

All of the tourist-related destinations are located on the south end of Casey Key. For dining, North Jetty Tap & Grill is serving up casual comfort food. North Jetty Fish Camp And Beach is the place to go before you go sign up to go fishing with Playin' Hookey Fishing Charters. Adventurers can check out Jetty Rentals, where kayaks, paddleboards and surfboards, and other personal pleasure craft are available. And finally, vacationers have these apartment & cottage options to choose from for their extended stay: Casey Key Florida Vacation Rentals - West Wind Apartments, A Beach Retreat, Suntan Terrace, A Place To Be, On the Beach, and Gulf Sands Beach Resort.
