Cozy home in Lido Key has all you need within walking distance of Lido Beach and St. Armand's Circle

  • 5 of 5

This home is a delightful hideaway to stay at if your wanting to be near St. Armand's Circle, Lido Beach, the park at the end of the Key, or a short drive from Sarasota, or Longboat Key. We were impressed with how clean and well appointed the home was, including 2 full bathrooms, a well stocked kitchen (including both a coffee maker and a Keurig), dishwasher, laundry washer and dryer, heat producing electric fireplace, functional office with a Fax and printer, and TV's in all the rooms hooked to a DVD player.

The stand out was the Lanai at the back of the house. It's actually bigger than the house itself, fully screened in and enclosed, with a roof over the porch lounge area, a heated pool, a wet bar, and more than enough seating if you have family or guests over. On top of that there's another garden like area with a fire pit for even more eating and socializing next to it.

Around all of this is a 6 foot wall for privacy.

The street it's near is mostly quiet with slow moving traffic. The home has 2 areas for parking.

One advantage to it's location is that it's right on a walkway that leads up into St. Armand's Circle (the sidewalk mostly winds thru a median, with trees and little bridges, making it nice to travel on), or down to Lido Key Park on the southernmost tip. It's just a couple of blocks walk to Lido Beach. If your feeling up to a longer walk or a 6 mile run, going from end to end on the key, or over the John Ringling Boulevard Bridge into Sarasota and back, will work nicely.

We had a wonderful time, and this home was an important part of that.

Rolayne and Gary went the extra mile and had a Christmas Tree w/lights, Stockings, cookies and seasonal coffee, making for a very Happy Holiday.

Fantastic Work Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house was booked for myself and 3 colleagues as an alternative to the hotel in which our conference was held. We had a fantastic time being able to relax and connect at this home in Lido. The owner was easy and quick to communicate with. The home was clean and well stocked. We loved the poll, bikes, beach gear and all! Within minutes of shopping and the beach! We can't wait to come back! Thanks!

We had a wonderful week in this Lido Key property! The owners have thought of everything that you could possibly need for your stay, so you don't have to worry about anything other than enjoying yourself. We are already looking at availability so we can reserve our next visit.

Great accommodations, with attention to every detail

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic spacious, well furnished patio and poolside. Don't want to leave the pool for the beach. Everything is either new, or very well maintained. Good number of sturdy and comfortable poolside chaises, pool toys (floaters, noodles, etc)

Kitchen is stocked with all necessary appliances and supplies, including, but not limited to electric kettle, blender, ice cream scooper, full array of spices and condiments.

Beds with comfortable quality mattresses, and good linen. Flat screen TVs and satellite TV throughout the house, including the patio. Strong and consistent WiFi.

Had a fantastic vacation, will definitely consider returning in the future.

Great home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home has great outdoor space. It features outdoor seating, covered patio seating, and poolside seating. The pool is perfect for cooling down & relaxing. The whole thing is screened to keep it bug free. The home is well equipped with everything you need - including a shed full of beach gear. The house is quiet, private, & secluded. At the same time, it is less than a 10 minute walk to St. Armond's circle (a large, fun shopping & eating district) & no more than a 5 minute walk to the beach. The best part of this property is the owners. When we arrived, we found the cleaning service had made a mistake on our check in date & hadn't cleaned. We were obviously upset & called the owners. They felt so bad, they returned our entire week's rental. We told them that was too generous, but their reply: "That's the kind of people we are." Well, the cleaners came the next day & the home was lovely. The cleaning service even sent us a gourmet food basket & $50 gift card. Bottom line: a mistake happened and the owners made it right! We would go back to the house anytime. Great property, great location, great people.
