"My wife, baby daughter, dog, and I all had a wonderful time at the house. I couldn't tell what distances would be like on Lido Key, but having walked in all directions, I can assure you this is a perfect location. You are a 5 minute walk to the beach or 5 minutes to the kayak launch in Ted Sperling Park (we rented from www.ikayaksarasota.com and had a good time). You can make it to St Armand's Circle in a very pleasant 15 minute walk, and you will find everything you need there--be sure to check out the numerous unique shops and eat at Columbia Restaurant (www.columbiarestaurant.com) and order dessert--you won't be disappointed. It is also a very easy drive back into Sarasota, about ten minutes to drive to downtown and interesting restaurants and shops in the Main Street area, or a few more minutes to botanical gardens or the Ringling Estate (a highlight of the trip for us). You will love the lanai--basically a giant screened-in porch that encompasses an outdoor living room and pool area. In the perfect fall weather, we spent much of our time there. With a baby, we almost didn't want to go the beach because the pool was so enjoyable. The lanai has courtyards on two sides, and the whole area is very private with a high wall. The home furnishings were recently updated and gave the space a wonderful home-like feel. Very quickly we felt like we belonged and looked forward to returning from our daily adventures around the island and around the Sarasota area. Perhaps the best thing about the house is working with Rolayne and Gary--they are a pleasure to communicate with and truly desire for their guests to have every comfort of home on vacation. I am a bit of a foodie and very particular about kitchens, but was very pleased with all the supplies and utensils available in the kitchen--we made some delicious meals during our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone, and in fact have been doing my best to make friends and family jealous of our time. We hope to return someday, and if we are ever in the Sarasota area, this house will be first on the list. It is just everything we would want."Guest: Bret Date of Stay: October 2013 Review Submitted: November 9, 2013View listing
"My husband and I stayed in Sandy Toes for a week and it was exactly what you see in the pictures! The unit was clean, modern, welcoming and full of the amenities of a home. The bed was super comfortable! The beach is a 3 minute walk/ half block away! St Armands Circle is great for shopping, eating and people watching and is only a few blocks away! Julie also helped us with recommendations of where to eat and who to call to set up a paddle boarding eco tour. We also toured the mangroves and I highly recommend it! I can't wait to book with Julie and Island Dreams again!"Guest: Team W Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 18, 2014View listing
"House was great - very clean, great location - loved it all. Management was present several times and was informative as well. However we prefer a little more privacy. Some repairs were being done outside, and at times didn't feel comfortable using the backyard - pool - dock etc. at our leisure. Seems repairs could have been accomplished when the house wasn't being rented, or a time could have been blocked off for such on the owners time, not the renters."Guest: Chrissy Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 15, 2014View listing
