About Mark

My husband and I are from Ontario, Canada. We started going to Lido Key 10 years ago with several friends and just loved the area. We always knew that when we retired we would like to reside in Florida for 6 months and once we experienced the flavor of Lido Key we knew this was the place to retire. We have a lot of years before that happens, but it is always good to plan ahead. We own several rental properties so the rental business is not new to us.

Mark purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mark chose Lido Key

We just loved that building and the area. The first time we saw the building and the unit we were impressed. The building and the grounds are well maintained and the stunning view of the beach/gulf as you sit pool side is priceless. The unit has all ceramic tile except the bedroom and the open concept is very nice. You can be making breakfast, lunch and dinner and still enjoy the views of the gulf from your kitchen.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy walking along the beach and stopping at the Ritz tikki beach bar for drinks, which is a 2 minute walk. We also enjoy the occasional morning where we go to St. Armand's Circle for a Starbucks coffee. This location is close to the circle which provides all the shopping and restaurant you will need. I love to shop at 'Shore' and eat at 'Tommy Bahamas' restaurant, the ribs are fabulous.

Winter 2017...

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home after spending another wonderful winter on Lido Beach. It was so nice to return to this cheerful condo again .... the warm neutral decor and beach theme throughout make this a perfect getaway for snowbirds from colder climates, just like us! It is cheerful, relaxing, and very quiet apart from the sound of the ocean waves.

The condo is nicely furnished and everything you would need is provided...a fully stocked kitchen with all tableware, cutlery, cooking utensils, etc. Bed linens, blankets and towels are also provided. The sunny lanai looks out on palm trees, white sand and the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The lanai also overlooks a very nice heated swimming pool, along with furniture and umbrellas for guests.

The building is a perfect size - only 7 floors. It is located just minutes from the famous St. Armand's Circle where we found many excellent restaurants and bars offering a wide selection of International cuisine served in unique settings. Downtown Sarasota, with all its entertaining nightlife, is only a 20 minute drive by car.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely condo to those who are seeking peaceful and relaxing days on the beach, along with lively evenings at nearby St. Armand's or downtown Sarasota.

Perfect in every way garage parking, beachfront on paradise. Really was nice to enjoy sunrises and sunsets from the pool and the condo. Owner was very nice to work with. Everything was provided for in the condo that one could think of. Go and relax with the top 1 %. Shells on this part of the beach are out this world.

Our 2016 Winter Vacation......

  • 5 of 5

This condo is situated on Lido Key, one of the barrier islands off the coastline of Sarasota. It is conveniently located to St. Armand's Circle, Great Restaurants, Downtown Sarasota, Mote Marine Lab., Selby Gardens, Ringling Museum, Van Wezel Performing Arts Theatre, Sarasota/Brandenton Airport, etc.

The photos/descriptions shown are indeed accurate....a very tastefully decorated condo with fully equipped kitchen, towels, blankets and bed linens. It is clean, well maintained, quiet and comfortable. The lanai overlooks a heated pool with surrounding furnished patio area. The views of the white beach and turquoise ocean, from the lanai, are particularly nice. We liked the size of this building....not too large with just 7 floors. Guests have the use of an assigned parking space.

Owner was easy to work with - prompt responses at all times. We look forward to another winter here in 2017.
