About Davidson Lunger

We live on Kent Island on the Chesapeake Bay and rescue dogs as our passion. The Lido Beach property has been a year round rental until considerable renovations were performed in the last few years. We decided to make the property available to guests and we will use it as availble.

Davidson Lunger purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Davidson Lunger chose Lido Key

We were intrigued by the fact that the property was built in the 1920's by John Ringling for his staff with seven stand alone homes in White Sands Of Lido. After looking around Florida, the Sarasota area has such beauty and so many cultural and outdoor activities that we were hooked. We are looking forward to retirement, but didn't want to be in a 'retirement' area. This is a fun, active, diverse and healthy place to enjoy and laid back at the same time with so much to do.

What makes this cottage unique

A unique vacation property value. Located one tenth of a mile from the Lido Beach, two tenths of a mile to wonderful pool on the beach, 3 tenths of a mile to a park on Sarasota Bay with shower facilities and Kayak rentals and launch, bike paths, one half mile to St. Armands Circle.

97% of our guests return if they revisit the area!!

The whole property was perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

It was our third time staying in this house and like always, it was prefect for our family. It was tidy with everything we needed and really close to the beach which was nice. Since finding this house two years ago we didn't even bother to look for other options because this house never disappoints us.

Extremely Impressed by Owner Honesty, Response & Integrity

  • 5 of 5

We booked and paid for a week based on the the opening the VRBO calendar showed. However we didn't know that, due to a glitch, a portion of that time the property was already reserved . The owner was very quick to respond and apologize. He attempted to juggle dates to accommodate our schedule but was unable to do so. He immediately went to work to issue a refund. There was a problem with the refund amount and when brought it to his attention he again immediately took care of that as well. We will definitely attempt to book this property on another visit to the area!

Great little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week and had a fantastic time and great weather. The home was very clean and an easy walk/drive to the beach. We normally go to Bradenton Beach or Siesta Key beach and both are easy drives from the rental. We were most impressed that the home had everything that you need for the beach, " many other rentals don't have". We loved having a cooler, beach chairs, towels and the beach umbrella furnished. The home also has everything furnished, is spacious and has very comfortable beds. We didn't mind that the home is a little off the beaten path, in fact that was nice not having to deal with noise etc.. but it's still very close to St. Armands and all the fine restaurants/shopping. Overall we would recommend this quaint beach home, and will hopefully come back again in the years to come.

The cottage was just as pictured on VRBO great little house

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little house in Sarasota at Lido Beach. The house was close to the beach & St Armonds Circle. It had everything you could need to stay for a week that is for sure we did not want for anything. Our 2 small dogs joined us and the fenced in yard was great for that. We will defiantly look to rent again next time we come back to Sarasota. I would tell a friend about it if they are staying in the area for sure.
