Perfect vacation in paradise!
"Life's a Beach was such a perfect addition to my vacation! It was equipped with everything I needed, it was vibrant with Island artwork, and it was so close to the beach. The best part was the jacuzzi!!"

"This home is a great bang for the buck in the sarasota area. Less than 10 miles to the Bradenton beaches and less than 20 to Siesta Key (AMAZING SAND) and Sarasota beaches. Flea market is very close as well. The property is awesome and has no shortage of room. There is an abundance of wildlife and you're right on the slow moving river. We had 12 people stay comfortably. The staff was great to work with and provided excellent prompt service to a small maintenance item We encountered. Master edition is excellent especially the bathroom. Kitchen is a little small and could use a little updating but is fully functional. solid 4 star endorsement."

"We had a wonderful time in Lido Key this summer! We rented this home for 2 adults and 4 teens. We loved this house! It is an older house but it is very well kept. The house had plenty of room for everyone, 3 bedrooms and a queen size sleep sofa. It is spacious, very clean, and nicely decorated. The house is full of light with big windows overlooking the pool area. The pool and gazebo were the teens favorite hangout. The house is very well equipped. Although small, the kitchen had everything you would need. The dishwasher wasn't working but it's probably fixed now. The mudroom has a very nice washer and dryer. The house comes with 3 bicycles (large adult size) that the teens used to go explore on their own, a couple of pool rafts and toys, and plenty of thick beach towels.
The location is perfect - an easy couple of blocks from St. Armand's Circle, and from the circle, a quick an easy walk to the beach. If you've never been to St. Armand's it is a very nice area full of great restaurants and shops. The Lido beach is absolutely gorgeous and it wasn't that crowded when we were there which was great (we don't like crowded beaches). The nicest part of the beach is right off the circle, since it's wide. If you walk down on the beach (south) there is a snack shop that has the most delicious lobster rolls. One fun thing we did was kayaking in the Lido tunnels - look it up if you go, we saw dolphins!
Kristie, the manager, was very easy to work with and responsive to all our questions. We highly recommend renting this house if you want to explore Lido Key. We want to go back already!"
