just my style, cozy, clean and carefree

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to wind down from moving out of my home of 18 years in Sarasota! Me two dogs and a grown daughter all with plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Mr. Webb was very kind and we appreciated meeting him. Thank you Webb family for allowing us to stay in your cozy cottage with the big deck.

Shabby Chic, or Just Shabby?

  • 2 of 5

This little place is the smaller part of an already modest house which has been divided into two apartments. I would say “bungalow”, but that implies a bit more charm than is present here, although it could be really sweet with a face-lift. Be aware that the listing photo is of the front, but the unit itself is in back.

The good:

1) Location is great. The beach is about a three-minute walk away.

2) The neighborhood is quiet. One of the reviews suggests an easy walk to St. Armand’s Circle, but I would say for much of the year it’s too hot to walk.

3) New wall-mounted air conditioner. More about this below, but it cools well.

4) Comfortable king bed.

5) Ernie, the owner and caretaker, is a sweetheart; helpful and accommodating.

6) Comfortable beach chairs provided.

7) Functional gas BBQ provided, with fuel.

8) Good internet and tv.

9) Unit was fairly clean and showed no evidence of rodents.

10) All exterior walls have glass louvers; lots of natural light.

The not-so-good:

1) The aforementioned a/c is quite loud even at the lowest fan setting, and makes an annoying clattering noise audible under the fan. My wife needed earplugs to sleep.

2) The whole place has the feeling of an afterthought. The furniture, while comfortable enough, is mismatched and dated, like thrift store finds. The bedroom set in particular is an unfortunate style I call “disco pimp”, all sharp angles, gloss black and brass. Add in a few decades of wear, break the corner off the mirror, and you’ll have it.

3) The listing indicates a washer and dryer, but doesn’t mention that they are coin-op ($2 per wash/$.75 dry) and located outside the house under a sort of lean-to arrangement with a plastic shower curtain in front in an effort to keep out the worst of the weather. An extra fun feature of this arrangement is the wasp nest overhead, adding a bit of sport and exercise to laundry time. Don’t leave your laundry; if the cleaning crew is working on the front unit while you’re doing your wash, they will take your stuff out and pile it on the rusty top in order to do their linens.

4) Listing also includes a dishwasher, which I suppose is accurate if you include yourself. There is no actual appliance to wash dishes for you.

5) There is a smell when you first enter, a product mostly of age and the olfactory remnants of the furnishings’ former lives, overlaid with just a faint whiff of urine. We used up several scented candles and assorted room fresheners.

Owner's Response: Immediately after these people left we ordered brand new head board and night stand and dresser. We just have been so busy this season that we did not get to updating this unit until now. There is a coin operated washer and dryer on the property but in the listing choices I did not find a place to point that out. We have also just repainted the house and are constantly looking for ways to improve the stay of our guests so they continue to come back. If there is something we can provide you to make your stay more comfortable you can always ask and we will do our best to make you happy

Very Satisfying Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for the month of February and had a wonderful time. The unit has a great deck that is very quiet and gets some sun and shade. Easy walk to St. Armonds Circle and an easy drive to shopping in downtown Sarasota. The unit was fine for the two of us and the dog, but a guest would not have much privacy. The unit had everything you would need for a stay, but it is dated. The floors needs refinishing, needs some paint on the exterior and some repairs to the deck. While it would be nice to have the updates, we had no problems and will be returning next winter.

A lovely little place

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted with the studio apartment. It was well furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we would want and the large coffeemaker was most appreciated by this coffee drinking couple. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was. We never heard the people in the apartment rental next to us, in spite of the fact they were having a large family get together. The beach chairs were great to have and easy to carry the 1.5 blocks away to the beach. We loved Lido Key and would want to come back again and again.

I enjoyed my recent stay at this little cottage.

  • 3 of 5

Lots of space for a studio. It's quiet, clean and an easy walk to the beach. The deck is not completely fenced in, my pup enjoyed our walks on the island. I would definitely stay here again!
