About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)remodeled kitchen/baths

Relax at the quiet beach during the day, then walk 9 minutes to world famous St Armand's Circle for dinner, drinks and shopping. International boutique shoppes and restaurants' as well as small cafes and coffee shops to fit every budget. You may choose to stay at the condo and prepare your meals in the recently remodeled, fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy dining while watching the sunset from the one of the lanais.

Swim in the heated pool or just relax with a good book under the shade of an umbrella.

Try a bicycle ride along the quiet road to the nature park at the end of the key.

For a change of pace, visit one of Sarasota's museums, art galleries, theaters or shopping malls.

One of my favorite venues is the open air market in Sarasota on Saturday mornings. Good coffee, pastries and fresh produce as well as handcrafted items are just a short 10 min. drive away

About Vicki Wilkins

My husband and I fell in love and purchased this condo in December, 2010. We were hooked on the view of the Gulf of Mexico, the open and airy layout with a lanai off every room. The short walk to St Armand's was also very appealing. We hope you enjoy your stay at Lido Shores.

Why Vicki Wilkins chose Lido Key

The moment we walked into this property we knew it was the one. We had looked at a minimum of 25 condos and this was it! The unit was open and airy with magnificent views...we love it and hope you do as well.

What makes this condo unique

One of the wonderful things about St Armand's Circle is the art fairs, the music you often hear while strolling around and of course treating yourself to an ice cream cone or a glass of wine at lunch or dinner. Walk downstairs to the pool, or cross the street to Lido Beach.

This place is a little like heaven. Clean, fully furnished and close to beach and shopping/restaurants.

We stayed there in April and found it peaceful and beautiful. Loved going to St Armands for coffee and dinner.

Owners asked me to write an honest review and I said I would be pleased to do so. I cannot think of one negative.

Thank you Wilkins for this wonderful rental.
