Cozy Retreat New the Ocean

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice little getaway retreat. It was cute, cozy, comfortable and quiet. It was close enough to walk to the beach (although not quit as close as I had hoped) and to the historic shopping district (although we drove). The kitchen was sufficient, as advertised, supplies minimal. The studio was the perfect size for a couple. My only negative was that we happened to be there on a cooler weekend and the old Florida style windows were drafty. I would definitely go back.

This is a nice little studio, exactly as advertised in a great location, clean & comfy

  • 5 of 5

First time in Lido Key and we needed a place last minute. This studio was affordable and had a great location. While not glamorous it is clean and had all we needed for a beach stay. Quiet at night and close to everything.

The property is conveniently located literally a couple blocks from Lido beach. A very easy walk to restaurants, bars and shopping. The area was a little upidity for my taste and the locals were not very friendly so we spent most of our time at SIESTA KEY beach which was AMAZING!

The room is title "Great Getaway for couples" because although there were 3 of us I would definately return with my fiancee' The Studio has Everything you need aside from privacy with the pull out couch an arms-length away from the bed. However I understood that's what we signed up for.

The room was clean and very charming and there were even beach items available for use!

The price can't be beat! Great for an extended weekend vacay!

Very clean, stocked kitchen and nice beachy decor

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Lido Beach. The unit was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes and has a full size fridge. The owner was very welcoming with clear and thorough directions for arriving. There were lots of extra offered including bike rentals. The only reason I marked the unit down slightly was that it was a bit far from the shops (almost a mile) and beach. I guess we should have rented the bikes!
