I have already booked this wonderful home for two months next year. The house was immaculate. The cottage decor was light and airy - it made you feel good to start your day surrounded by soothing colors and a freshness I have never had in any other rental. This home owner gives "attention to detail" a new meaning - we unpacked, slipped into the pool and enjoyed the beautiful landscaping and this perfect vacation get-away. Vicki Robb

PS I'm going back for the entire month of March, 2018, and I'm feeling so lucky and happy!

This is a great property and we really enjoyed our time here! The location is perfect, just a short walk to the beach or to St. Armand’s for dinner. The bikes that the owner provides is a wonderful touch. You will find everything that you need at this beach cottage! Thanks for sharing it with us! Hope to come back next year!

Couldn't have been nicer

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 8 in all, shared Cyndi's lovely house on Lido Key outside Sarasota. The location was ideal, under 10 minute walk to the circle, a block from the beach, and 3 from the park so noise was minimal yet access was superb. Cyndi was a communicative and responsive host too. She provided towels (both beach and bath), beach chairs, umbrellas, games and wagon for transport, bikes for cruising, and 3 comfortable bedrooms with two baths and a den with pullout couch. The kitchen offered everything we needed to cook and eat in whenever we wanted, though the restaurant selection (even during the busy Christmas week) left us with unlimited choices of great dining. You won't go wrong to visit Lido Key and Cyndi's superb house.

Beautiful, Roomy Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely beach cottage on our family vacation. The house is beautiful and well appointed. The short walk to the beach was no problem. We enjoyed the location and the ease to get to St. Armand's circle as well as the beach. We had everything we needed for the beach (beach toys, towels, umbrella, even a wagon to haul it all). Our kids ranged in ages from 1-16 and they all had a wonderful time. The owner was very responsive and lovely to work with. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

This was our 2nd stay at this house and it was just as Fantastic as the 1st stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this house and it was just as Fantastic as the 1st stay!! Just a short 5-minute walk to Lido Beach or a quick 2-minute drive to St. Armond’s Circle. The landscaping makes you feel like you are on your own private island, and the pool was especially great for us! Other items of note: the interior was decorated very nicely, all the beach essentials like chairs, toys, an umbrella and even a beach buggy to carry it all in were provided. It even had games available like corn hole and ping-pong!! All-in-all, we really had a great time on vacation, and this house was certainly a large part of our enjoyment. You can't go wrong renting this house!

This nice little cottage is fantastic! The pool area is very nice with plenty of seating. Landscaping at the cottage was very nicely done. Absolutely beautiful! Very nicely decorated interior with plenty of comfortable seating for the five of us. Cottage is a block from the beach and 3 blocks to St Armonds Circle. We will definitely return to this property!
