Why Meredith McGraw (aka Merry Sutter) chose Lido Key

While raising our kids we vacationed during the winter months on Lido Key, and when it was time to buy, we knew where we wanted to be. We adore the privacy and quietness of this condo. We cross the street with our chairs and cocktails to wave goodbye to the sun and glory in the sunset. Morning jogs on the beach. Kayaking in Ted Sperling Park. Walk into town for our morning Starbucks and paper. We are sure you'll like it as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

Although it's been mentioned before, you just can't beat this location....across the street is Lido Beach, and we're a short walk to St. Armand's Circle. Also, Mangrove kayaking rentals right down the street.

Quiet, relaxing, convenient Stay

The property is well supplied with all that is needed. It’s best plus is the location. Right across the street from the beach and also very close to St. Armand’s Circle for a variety of shops and restaurants. Would recommend this condo for a quiet, relaxed stay. Judi G.

On the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

After the long drive down, it was certainly nice to arrive at our destination. What both my wife and I noticed immediately was the privacy the unit provided and the nearness to the beach. The apartment complex right across from us always had people walking by the other units in that building, but because of our location, this did not happen in our building.. We did walk almost everywhere, to the beach, the Circle and the park at the end of Blvd. of the Presidents. This also, besides the very pleasant weather, was much appreciated by both of us. The unit itself was

Very nice and Very clean. We hope to keep in contact with Meridith because we would like to stay for two months in 2019.

Perfect beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this condo with my husband! We came for the month and enjoyed the place so much! It's next to everything you could need or want to do! The beach was right across the street and we managed to go almost every day! I can't wait to come back and stay there again!!
