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.

We had a wonderful time. The house was perfectly equipped for all our needs! Would stay again!
Best location! Great house!
We wanted a very short walk to the beach - and we got it! It's about half a block to the beach access from the house. The house is also a two minute drive to St. Armand's Circle - great shopping, dining and ice cream. Perfect for our family of four - very clean, very cute place!
Most relaxing week I have had in a long time!
The Mango cottage was the most adorable Florida house I can imagine! We had everything we could possibly need such as coffee pods, beach towels, the porch (which is where I enjoyed my coffee every morning) outdoor shower with soap and shampoo and mangoes hanging from the backyard tree!
We rode the bikes and used the boogie boards which are in the garage. A walk up the street and we were on the beach!
Did not have the opportunity to use the grill since we ate out every night.....many wonderful places to eat in the area. The kitchen would have been a joy to use since it was brand new and very nice.
I would really like to spend about a month every summer there when I finally retire!
Destination wedding stay
We enjoyed our stay in this cottage. The location is close to the beach, shopping and dining. To say this cottage is well stocked is an understatement, Pat has addressed almost every need you might have! Thanks Pat, we enjoyed our stay!
Lovely Lido Key beach cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mango Tree Cottage. The owners were quick to respond to all questions we had. Short walk to the ocean and the bikes provided allowed us to explore the area without renting a car. The house was very comfortable and just as represented in the pictures. Thanks Pat and Mark!
