Nautilus Homes - Why Nautilus is Sarasota's Top Custom Home Builder

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.

Legendary Quality

The highest quality standards are evident in everything we do, from the top-grade materials we source globally, to our meticulous methods that far exceed building codes, to our excellence in craftsmanship at every stage of construction.

White Glove Service

Our job is to make the homebuilding process as stress-free as possible for clients. Our end goal is for you to have an overwhelmingly positive experience from tear down to turnkey and beyond. That means understanding your needs and providing highly responsive, concierge-style service throughout every stage.

Early Involvement

Since we collaborate right from project conception through design and every step of construction, we can provide the expert guidance that ensures your project stays on time, on budget, and just as you envisioned.

Accelerated Timelines

By thoughtfully assembling the right team, backed by highly efficient project and process management, we can deliver exceptional quality on a tight timeline.


We believe honesty, craftsmanship, and superb client service are not just a thing of the past. We pride ourselves on being mindful of our client’s needs and prioritizing those values that make for a strong, respectful relationship.

Peace of Mind

Our goal is to take as much stress out of the homebuilding process as possible for our clients, both locally and around the globe. That’s why we have sophisticated, yet easy-to-use technologies in place that allow you to check on a project’s progress anytime, anywhere.
