About the owner: I purchased this 4-unit property in 2011, after a roundabout path through several cities and professions. I live on site in one of the units, and I completely renovated the other 3 units to offer as vacation rentals in this little slice of paradise. It was my dream to live by the beach, hence the name Island Dreams, and I look forward to sharing it all with you! Julie
Why the Owner Chose Lido Key: I visited Sarasota for the first time in 2010, and immediately knew I wanted to make it my home. This charming small city has all of the benefits of a big city - culture, restaurants, events - along with stunning beaches, friendly people and an amazing quality of life. And Lido Key encompasses all of that. It has a quiet and laid-back yet sophisticated beach atmosphere, and its proximity to downtown Sarasota can't be beat.
