Home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, you need is available to you. What a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing time with loved ones. Very private, just a short walk to beautiful Lido Beach and St. Armand's Circle. The place was clean, the beds were comfortable and the owner is fantastic also. We are looking forward to it again next year. Thank you Rolayne Fickes for a truly memorable time.

Owner's Response: Sometimes things just line up perfectly in the universe. Gary and I were scheduled to be at our home during this time frame but had to cancel due to a change in plans. We made the dates available and immediately received a request from Mitch and Terry. There was a "golden connection" created with their love of Goldie and our love of Sundance, and Cosey. The connection was of course our golden retrievers! Thank for your glowing review. You are welcome back anytime as members of our Lido Key family. Woof!! and Thank you for being our guests.

Every need is anticipated!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed in many HomeAway properties, and I have to say that this property was, by far, the best I have ever stayed in. EVERY need has been anticipated and supplied for a wonderful stay at the beach. We had forgotten to bring our griddle for our pancake breakfast and lo and behold, there was a griddle on top of the fridge! The house is delightfully decorated, cozy and the bedding wonderfully comfortable. But the best feature is the outdoor patio area. It is large with plenty of seating and the swimming pool is just large enough to cool yourself off or float around and nap. If you are planning a stay in the Lido Beach area, I would definitely recommend both the property and Rolayne as a magnificent host!

More Than Perfect for a Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

My family (two adults, two kids, ages 4 and 1.5) recently stayed at this home for a week. It was beyond perfect for us. The provided pack 'n play and high chair were so convenient, and the books and games kept my kids occupied when we weren't at the beach or pool. We spent most of our time at the pool - there were tons of beach/pool toys that our kids loved playing with. The beach was walking distance - but we drove since the parking lot at the beach was free and had plenty of spaces. The kitchen was fully stocked with lots of cooking gear (both for the grill and indoor cooking) and plates, cups, etc. I appreciated that there were plenty of plastic plates and cups for the kids to use. I was also very grateful for so many beach towels and regular towels available. I never had to get out of the pool and dry off with a wet towel. We also had fun making s'mores at the fire pit.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We made many wonderful memories, and we would love to come back soon.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about our stay at the Lido beach house, it was simply amazing and relaxing, the house sits in a private and secluded area in Lido and the surroundings area is absolutely beautiful, the house is well stock with everything imaginable, Rolayne Fickes have definitely thought of everything you may need, and has provided it to make your stay pleasurable. The house has a very cozy feel as soon as you open the doors, there is so much to do on the island from several shopping villages and very charming and unique selections of shops and a variety of restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual outdoor fare, the kiddos did not want to leave and that said it all, we will defiantly be booking another stay soon.
