House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
Lido Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches, not only in Florida, but in the United States. 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 this quaint, Lido home.
We had a blast!

We had a blast!
George was easy to work with before our stay. Vicky was fantastic during our time at the house. It is exactly as the pictures show. Everything we needed for a great trip. Thank you for sharing!
We rented this property with another couple for a conference our husbands were attending. The location was perfect, close to town and even closer to the beach. The newly updated home was well appointed and the pool area was where we spent most of our time. Vicki was very helpful and we can't wait to return. This property will not disappoint!
After an exhaustive search, we found the perfect place on Lido Key. In town for a family wedding, the house and the pool exceeded our expectations and were a great place to relax in between events. Within minutes of arrival, we were greeted by Vicki to welcome us to Lido Key and give us a tour of the property. Throughout our stay, Vicki was very hospitable and only a phone call away to address our needs. The house is a short walk to the beach and the shops at St. Armand’s Circle and the shaded yard with the pool was the perfect place to drink coffee in the morning or escape from the hot mid-day sun. We would definitely stay here again when in the Sarasota area.
Great house, great location. Private pool close to beach.
We had the house for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. The private pool area makes it seem like you are truly away from it all, while you are only steps from the beach, shopping and restaurants. The house is well equipped, comfortable, clean and perfect for 2 or 4 people. We had the adjoining cottage for an additional 3 days while our family joined us and the whole experience was wonderful.
The location is excellent for walking to the beach and to St. Armands Circle. The appointments in the house are beautiful and the home has a comfortable cozy feel to it. The outside pool area and landscaping gave the impression of a tropical oasis. We sat outside by the pool daily and enjoyed our coffee and other beverages. St. Armands Circle has all the restaurants you need and its just a 3 or 4 block walk. The local area is stacked with things to do; Mote Marine Laboratory was our favorite, along with the bait shop/grille (New Pass Grille and Bait Shop) at the corner of the Laboratory entrance road. There is also the Ringling Museum and Selby Botanical Gardens to visit, along with nearby Siesta Key. Vicki was the best assistant to the owner. She helped us with our needs and gave excellent advice on dining in the circle. We will be back, but for a longer stay next time!
