Property description

Come enjoy these sparkling, newly renovated and furnished units just a half-block to beautiful Lido Beach! Island Dreams Vacation Rentals is a 4-unit beach complex. This listing is for my 1-bedroom "Sandy Toes" unit. Step right into this first-floor rental. The soothing green and blue decor will put you in the island mood the moment you walk through the door! It features the largest living area of the one-bedrooms, with plenty of kitchen cabinets and a convenient dishwasher. The bedroom has a queen bed and large closet for all of your storage needs. The living room has a queen pullout sleeper sofa to allow up to 4 guests.

Location, location, location! We are perfectly centered on this intimate island, and you can have it all for a fraction of the price of staying at a pricey resort. The beach, pavilion and concession stand, public pool, and Lido Beach Resort (with its popular tiki bar and restaurant) are all located just a half-block down our quiet residential street. Paddleboarding, kayak rentals, and the trails and picnic areas at South Lido park are also just a quick walk south. Famous St. Armand's circle - with its eclectic shops and delicious restaurants - is a 10-15 minute stroll to the north through the island's charming paths. And!, Lido is the closest island to downtown Sarasota - with all of its cultural attractions and amenities - just a quick drive over the beautiful Ringling bridge. It doesn't get any better than this!

All units at Island Dreams have recently renovated kitchens, updated baths, flat-screen TV's, beautiful beach-themed furnishings and fully stocked kitchens. There is laundry on site, assigned parking, free wifi and satellite TV, and all beach supplies and towels. Simply everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation!

Please see our other listings and great reviews (all on the same property) at: www.vrbo.com/915968, www.vrbo.com/915792, and www.vrbo.com/915624. We offer a 2-bedroom owner's unit sleeping up to 6 people, and 2 additional one-bedrooms sleeping up to 2-4 people. 2 units are pet friendly.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I purchased this property in 2011, after a roundabout path through several cities and professions. It was long my dream to own property by the beach, hence the name Island Dreams, and I look forward to sharing it all with you! Julie

Why the Owner Chose Lido Key, Sarasota, FL, USA:
I visited Sarasota for the first time in 2010, and immediately knew I wanted to make it my home. This charming small city has all of the benefits of a big city - culture, restaurants, events - along with stunning beaches, friendly people and an amazing quality of life. And Lido Key encompasses all of it. It has a quiet and laid-back, yet sophisticated, beach atmosphere, and its proximity to downtown Sarasota can't be beat.
