Vacation in style at this luxurious Lido Key rental in Sarasota, Florida
This fully updated, spectacular home is a vacationer's dream spot! The charming beach house has been completely restored to the atmosphere of old St. Armand's. It is situated in the perfect location on the beautifully landscaped island of Lido Key. This home is nestled perfectly, in an upscale area, between St. Armand's Circle and Lido Beach. There's something here for everyone - whether you want to stay in for a romantic evening in front of the outdoor fire pit, relax in the hot tub/pool, walk across the street to the beach on Lido Key, entertain friends, or enjoy 5 star restaurants, shopping, or nightlife at St. Armand's Circle which is only a 200 yard walk!
This spacious, newly remodeled home has every amenity you could want and sleeps 8 people. This entire property was tastefully remodeled in 2007 and no expense was spared. The remodel included landscaping, flooring, appliances, equipment, fixtures, and new furniture. The house includes 2 bedrooms, a den, and 2 full baths. The master bedroom has a king size bed and 50’ flat screen TV with digital HD cable. The second bedroom has 2 queen beds and the den can easily be converted into another bedroom. All linens are provided. The kitchen has updated appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, ice machine, and microwave), tile flooring, dining area with table that seats 8 (plus 3 bar stools at the bar island), and cooking utensils are provided. The living room includes a gas fireplace and 50' flat screen TV with surround sound. There is also a two car garage attached to the house and an alarm system.
This private home is located on a canal that is 200 feet wide and opens into the ocean. There is a private dock behind the house with a 13,000 pound boat lift so your boat is at your convenience throughout your vacation. There is a bridge at the end of the canal that allows for a 9 foot boat to pass through. If you feel like staying home you can take a swim in your very own pool, or convert it into a relaxing hot tub by turning on the heat and jets; or just kick back in the comfortable outdoor seating area and toast s’mores on the gas fire pit that is located next to the pool.
Walk out of the front door and you are less than 1/4 mile from the world famous white sands of Lido Beach. Or go on a quick walk less than 1/2 mile and you are at St. Armand's Circle.
Once you experience the St. Armand's/Lido Beach area you won't want to stay anywhere else! Explore the world famous white sands of Lido Beach to find shells, fish, sail, swim, play, walk on the beach, or enjoy an unbelievable sunset.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I purchased this house in 2004 after adding a division of my company to the Sarasota area. After purchasing I had the house remodeled and my family and I enjoyed a lot of time in this beautiful home. I have since bought another property in the St Armands area and now rent this house out since I haven't been able to part with it!!
Why the Owner Chose Lido Key: This is a great area of Sarasota and has great access by boat or car. Being close to the beach and the circle is a must when staying in Sarasota.
The Unique Benefits at this House: I am a huge fan of the St Armands area and the beach and this home is perfectly located. You can park your car and walk to all amenities in the area.
