Little Lido Beach House

181 Whittier Drive

Sarasota, FL 34236

Welcome to paradise! Little Lido Beach House is located one home in from the white sand beaches of Lido Key and close to the fun and excitement of Downtown Sarasota. This cozy beach house is the ideal getaway for your family vacation or friend's retreat. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms with modern coastal-themed décor gives this property a relaxing beachside atmosphere, and the proximity to the Gulf of Mexico ensures a pleasant sea breeze can be enjoyed while you lounge by the pool or enjoy the views from the rooftop deck.

The home boasts a fully stocked kitchen with beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen overlooks the dining area, a small common area and the deluxe living room. The dining room table seats five people and an additional two can be accommodated at the counter. Just through the sliding glass doors in the living room is the private backyard, complete with a shaded patio, BBQ grill and a heated pool and spa with a tiled pool deck. You can have it all at Little Lido Beach House with its prime location, beautiful backyard and many amenities.

BED & BATH DETAILS

On the first floor of the home you will have two of the three bedrooms. There is also a large living room with sliding glass doors leading out to the patio and pool area. The kitchen is located at the front entrance of the home, and just beyond this is a small dining area and a common space where you can enjoy a lovely meal with your family. The first bedroom will have a plush full mattress, personal TV and an en-suite bathroom with a tiled walk-in shower. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with one full mattress on bottom and a twin on top, as well as a small couch. There is also an additional shared bathroom on the first floor with a tub and shower and a second door leading out to the side yard. Upstairs you will find the third bedroom, which is a master suite with an en-suite bathroom and a personal TV. The master bathroom has a beautifully tiled walk-in shower. The second level also has access to a shared balcony, which has a spiral staircase that leads up to the large rooftop deck, where you can enjoy some of the best views in Lido Key. This home sleeps a total of 8 people.

EXTERIOR

Relax with a cocktail by the pool in a gorgeous backyard at this property. The entire poolside area is beautifully tiled, and the shaded patio provides a nice reprieve from the sun on hot summer days. You can take a dip in the luxurious spa or spend an evening relaxing on the balcony while you watch the palm trees sway and waves crash on the beach. For an even better view head up the spiral staircase tot the rooftop deck, where you can view the entire panorama. If you would like to venture out this home is in the perfect location. Only one short block away is Saint Armand's circle, which has the best selection of shops and restaurants in all of Sarasota. You could take your group on a short drive over the bridge to Downtown for some more exploring, or take the little ones to the Mote Marine Aquarium to catch a glimpse at what life is like under the sea. If you'd rather enjoy the natural beauty of Lido key, you can take the bikes and kayaks kept at the property down to the local undeveloped parks for a day of bike rides and kayaking in nature, after which you can take a short stroll from the home to watch the sunset on the beach.

** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact Beach House Real Estate at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Beach House Real Estate will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible!

Comfort and Convenience

  • 5 of 5

The house accommodated and served our family of 4 very well. It was what we were looking for for this particular area. The house was maintained and served our purposes and vacation accommodations. It had everything we needed. The pool was a great asset and it was shaded just at the right time after long hours at the beach. Great size for our family too. The house location was about 5-10min walk to restaurants and to the main shopping circle. Our family enjoyed all the amenities of the area just as we had in the past.

If you could own a little beach house of your own-this is the location that you would want. The walk through the palms and across the dunes is breathtaking and only takes about three minutes to reach the very best spot on Lido Beach. The house is very clean and furnishing is new and comfortable. We walked to Armand Circle, grilled, and enjoyed the peaceful neighborhood. We will come back!

Just Right!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just right, close to the beach, within walking distance of food and shopping, and very comfortable. We loved the pool and the bikes. Kilwin's ice-cream is a must. All of the property was clean and maintained, and the owner was exceedingly pleasant. I would recommend to just about anyone.

Summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Lovely combination of modern and old Floridian charm, and yet a short walk to St. Armand's Square and all it's wonderful restaurants and stores. My teenage granddaughter thought it was fantastic being able to enjoy the beach activities and then come back and relax in the crystal clear pool and sauna.

A five minute drive gets you to downtown Sarasota and the marina where you can board the dolphin sightseeing boat. We actually spotted mama and baby!

Already looking forward to next trip....with hubby!
