Why Nautilus Means Excellence.
Who we are
Setting the New Standard for Sarasota.
We grew up around here. As the area’s only native second generation home builder, we’ve spent many years building custom luxury homes in Greater Sarasota and building close relationships with the area’s premier industry professionals. Those experiences and connections, combined with our obsession with perfection, have allowed us to set a new benchmark for what discerning clients expect in a homebuilder.
The Nautilus Difference
Excellence matters, down to the last detail.
Our unsurpassed creations
lead to unmatched loyalty.
