Come enjoy these sparkling, newly renovated and furnished units just a half-block to beautiful Lido Beach! Island Dreams Vacation Rentals is a 4-unit beach complex. We offer a 2-bedroom owner's suite (which sleeps up to 6 people) as well as 3 unique one-bedroom apartments (sleeping up to 4 people).
All units have recently renovated kitchens, updated baths, flat-screen TV's, beautiful beach-themed furnishings and fully stocked kitchens. There is laundry on site, with free wifi and satellite TV.
Location, location, location! Island Dreams is perfectly centered on this intimate island, and you can have it all for a fraction of the price of staying at a pricey resort. The beach, pavilion and concession stand, public pool, and Lido Beach Resort (with its popular tiki bar and restaurant) are all located just a half-block down our quiet residential street. Paddleboarding, kayak rentals, and the trails and picnic areas at South Lido park are also just a quick walk south. Famous St. Armand's circle - with its eclectic shops and delicious restaurants - is a 10-15 minute stroll to the north through the island's charming paths. And!, Lido is the closest island to downtown Sarasota - with all of its cultural attractions and amenities - just a quick drive over the beautiful Ringling bridge. It doesn't get any better than this!

About the owner: I purchased this 4-unit property in 2011, after a roundabout path through several cities and professions. After living on site for two years, I recently made the 2-bedroom owner's unit available for rent. It was long my dream to own property 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 it. It has a quiet and laid-back, yet sophisticated, beach atmosphere, and its proximity to downtown Sarasota can't be beat.
