Property Details

Updated: Apr 24, 2015
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Lido Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches, not only in Florida, but in the United States. In 2009, the beach was completely re-nourished with its renowned soft, silky white sand. The world famous sunsets off the shores of Lido Beach draw not only our visitors but local residents as well. All there to soak in one of natures most spectacular performances. The view is so surreal that it is not uncommon to see people clap their hands in the joy they receive from this experience.

All of this is just a short stroll from the cottage.

Beautiful Lido Beach is just a block away

  • 4 of 5
We spent 14 days in this rental. The weather was beautiful the entire time. Luckily as the only dining area is a patio table with umbrella. But that is worst aspect I can come up with. Vickie was great in offering advise since this was our first visit to Lido. We were allowed access to the utility room where the washer & dryer and a full refrigerator were located. The rental unit contains an dorm size fridge that is good for cooling beverages & condiments. The portable cooktop was easy to work. As was the gas grill. The bed was very comfortable. The area was quite . The bathroom is small & contains no electricity but there is an extension cord in the bedroom. The walk to St. Armand's was only about 10 minutes. This was a charming place to stay & we recommend it highly.

Fantastic week on the beach!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our week on Lido Key so much! The cottage was just as described and did not disappoint at all. Clean and well maintained and a perfect destination for two! The beach was so close and easy to walk to. Also within walking distance was St. Armand's Circle and all it had to offer. Unique shops and wonderful restaurants kept us going back again and again. We highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a place to stay in a perfect location!

Excellent find

  • 5 of 5
This is the best rental on Lido Key (for the price). You have unmatched privacy, and security, not only with the gated entry, but also with the private deck in front. This unit has been completely redone, and is a pleasure to lease. I have stayed there for months at a time and been extremely comfortable. You will not find a better landlord and he is very responsive and careful. No matter is too small. The location is absolutely perfect. I would especially recommend it for the shoulder season of November, December and January. You will be extremely pleased. Thank you for the great hospitality.

Wonderful week on Lido Key

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the cottage. All the amenities were excellent and the location just a block from the beach and a five minute walk to St Armand's Circle was perfect. It is a great little cottage for a couple, but next door is a larger villa with a pool, which I would also highly recommend if more than two are travelling. The yard is full of trees and flowers, so it is a great place to relax even on the hottest day. The owner even provided bicycles for us, which made it easy to explore the island without having to drive. We will definitely be back.

Very Nice, Clean, And Convenient

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a nice place to stay close to the beautiful Gulf shore and convenient to Armand Circle and Sarasota, this is the place. All the amenities described are excellent and top quality. The apartment is well appointed. So well in fact, that my wife and I will save space in the car next time and leave some things at home now that we know what to expect. George is a very nice host and answers all questions as quick as possible. We look forward to our next stay.

Activity and Interests

Beautiful St. Armands Circle, with its collection of restaurants & pubs, daiquiri decks, ice cream parlors, boutiques and specialty shops is a short 5 minute walk from the villa.

The Lido Pavilion, located on the beach is 50 yards from the front door. Grant Drive is one of the quietest streets on Lido Key allowing you to bask in the simple pleasures of island life. At both ends of Lido Key there are Parks that you can bike or walk through, enjoying special 'look-outs' to the beautiful Mangroves surrounding that portion of Lido Key. Kayak rentals are available to get up close and personal with the natural shore lines surrounding Sarasota bay.

Mote Marine, a beautiful Aquarium where you can explore the many beautiful sea animals that live in the Gulf of Mexico is located just off the north end of the key.

Over the Ringling Bridge to mainland Sarasota you can take advantage of many wonderful experiences and a rich cultural community. From the Ringling Museum, to the ballet, opera or concerts at the Van Wezel, to gorgeous downtown Sarasota with its picturesque bay-front. With street names like Lemon, Orange, Pineapple, and Coconut it is a very tropical setting. Downtown Sarasota also boasts a beautiful movie theatre, library, plenty of shopping, and wonderful restaurants.

  • This beautifully renovated beach cottage, nestled on a little piece of paradise, is just a stones throw from Lido Beach. A fresh and friendly place to relax, unwind and enjoy your private, lush surroundings. By the way, when we say renovated, we mean remodeled to the “studs”, not just a coat of paint. This charming cottage has new, professionally installed hardwood flooring, crown moldings, and ceiling fans. The kitchen has been outfitted with brand new cherry cabinets, new fixtures and topped with an exotic piece of granite. A GE convection oven, microwave and induction cooktop allow you to prepare meals. In addition to the coffee maker and toaster there is also an outside propane barbecue for your use. All living room furniture has been recently purchased including the flat screen LCD television. Cable TV and wireless internet are available for your enjoyment at no charge. The outside temperature is usually perfect but just in case, a new Central A/C & Heat has been installed. The Queen sized bed, with its comfortable mattress and quality pillows will afford you a peaceful nights sleep, leaving you refreshed and ready for a great day. The bathroom, with decorator porcelain tiles throughout has been outfitted with Kohler fixtures, a vessel sink and Tommy Bahama style cabinets. A forceful shower with seemingly endless supplies of hot water will support one shower after another. Bath towels and bed linens are provided for your use. Your front deck, fully fenced and private is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee with a newspaper or an evening beverage with good company and personal conversation. Our villa is smoke free, please refrain from smoking inside the unit.
