This Sarasota home, listed at $12.9 million, feels like a throwback waterfront resort, complete with a rooftop waterslide and three-story sea life mural.

One way to think about it: Creative Loafing (correctly) said it has "90s cruise ship vibes."

Style: The entry lets you know what you're getting into. It features sliding glass doors with frosted palm fronds; polished limestone floors, ceiling and pillars; and a glass spiral staircase and sea life mural.

Interior highlights: Like any good resort-like property, this place has a giant fish tank, a full bar, movie theater, a library, game room, sky lounge, and Gulf views from just about every room.

The outdoor space features a heated saltwater infinity-edge pool, kitchen, plenty of lounge spaces, 175 feet of beachfront, and a rooftop waterslide.
