About Pat and Mark Smith
Mark and Pat Smith reside in Osprey, Florida and both graduated from Sarasota High School. Barbara Armstrong (Mark's Sister) graduated from Sarasota High School and moved to Memphis, TN after marrying her husband Bill.
Pat and Mark Smith purchased this House in 2004
Why Pat and Mark Smith chose Lido Key
Tag Smith the Uncle of Mark Smith (wife Patricia Smith) and Barbara Armstrong (husband Bill Armstrong) built the home in 1940 for his wife. It was later sold to their parents in the late 70's. Mark and his wife Patricia now own the property together with Barbara and her husband Bill. Mark and Pat lived in the house in the late 70's and early 80's and cherished the years while living there. Both couples chose to keep the house and have rented it long term for a number of years. Last year we decided to offer it as a vacation rental and we just finished a major renovation of the house. We all love the house and the location so close to the beach. It is a very special place for our family.
What makes this House unique
Our cottage has lots of big bright windows that create a bright, happy interior space. The vintage tongue and groove pine paneling and ceiling in the great room give such charm, as well as the 3 French doors to the comfortable jalousie porch. The location so close to the beach on beautiful Lido Key completes the fun, restful ambience. We look forward to sharing our happy space with travelers.

Fabulous vacation rental!
We absolutely loved this house!! The property was extremely clean, well stocked with all the necessities, close to beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants and activities. We were even welcomed with mangoes from the tree in the yard. We took full advantage of the beach chairs, umbrella and wagon every day. We explored the neighborhood and the nearby park on the provided bicycles. The neighborhood was quiet, the house and furnishings were comfortable and cozy. We loved every minute of our stay!!!
Very clean comfortable well stocked great location
Wonderful stay at this charming old Florida home. Highly recommend it
Comfy house with everything you need, great beach access, and close to shopping and restaurants
Mark and Pat have made an amazing little place to rent by the beach. It is a quiet neighborhood, but you are still only 1 block from the beach. Being a 5 minute walk from St. Armands circle is great for restaurants and shopping. The house was fully stocked with coffee and other amenities like washer/dryer and detergent. They even had soap and shampoo in the shower. This place was perfect for our family of 4. We will be back.
