"I have always wanted to stay in a cottage near the beach and finally made the decision to with this trip to Lido Key. I am so in love I don't want to go home!! I am writing this review on my last day. The screened in porch is to die for! Don't worry if it is hot outside there are to industrial sized fans (that aren't loud) to keep the breeze moving enabling you to enjoy the screened porch anytime of day. The kitchen is well stocked, the washer and dryer work great and are easy to use. There are beach chairs and beach towels for the short walk or ride to Lido Key beach. The living room has a really comfy sofa and two recliners that are electric and very comfortable!!! The beds are covered in 100% cotton linens and the mattresses are divine!! Keep in mind this is a cottage and has some uneven floors and rustic looks about it but that is what gives it the wonderful character!! I have never stayed in the same place twice but my mother and I are already looking to rebook this property in the fall. The cleaning crew had the place spotless when we arrived better than many 4 stars resorts I have stayed in. They left their signature cards on the beds, toilets and other parts of the house so that you were assured that cleaned all surfaces!! I met Dallas at Florida Vacation Connection because of an issue with the TV (it had come unplugged) and she came out on her Saturday evening to resolve the problem. She is a real asset to the management company and very easy to deal with! I can't wait to return and will be sad to go tomorrow!"

"What a place! We have stayed on Long Boat Key before but will definitely be interested in coming back to "the Cabana". Very nice place to stay, close to a ton of attractions, BEAUTIFUL beach very close by, excellent restaurants, and to top it all off a pool in the back yard! We loved our stay! Very kid friendly yet nice for a couples get away! Will definitely look into coming back again."

"The cottage was perfect for our needs-me and my two 'kids' (20's). My son said it was the 'quintessential beach house.' It was great to have a fenced yard for my service dog. Close enough to the beach to walk for stargazing and sunsets. Friendly neighborhood and very dog-friendly as well..."

"First of all I would recommend this to a friend, we enjoyed our 30 day stay here. The condo is nice and the experience was glitch free; no problems and a very cooperative owner.
Read the review of 'Bob and Nancy'; I can vouch for all the positives mentioned.
Walk to the bay with your morning coffee to watch the sun rise over Sarasota, and your evening tea to see the colors of the sunset. Great swimming pool and pool area. Even an exercise room and informal library / meeting room. While a small convenience store & good restaurant are virtually next door, you need transport for public beach access (limited parking), St. Armands (traffic & parking from hell) or Publix.
In short, a very nice accommodation, in a convenient area, with a great climate. You'll enjoy your stay."
