About Maureen or Matt Morris

We have lived in Sarasota for over 35 years. Love the beach and warm weather but have come to appreciate the cultural attractions that Sarasota has to offer and enjoy the many dining options as well.

Maureen or Matt Morris purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Maureen or Matt Morris chose Florida South West

It's a great get-a-way spot close to the beach and attractions but still has a quiet and residential feeling. Feels like you live here!

What makes this cottage unique

Best location - large cottage for up to 6 - beach bikes - quiet - private.

Amazing beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this cottage for couples and small family. The decor and everything you might think you need is available. Beach toys, umbrellas and chairs among other things are also part of the cottage. Great bikes! Town walking distance and beach steps away. LOVED IT!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay with our two college age children. The house was so clean and decorated in a cute beach theme. It was an easy walk to the beach. We used the grill one night and the beach chairs daily. The big dining room table was an unexpected bonus for meals and playing games. If we are in the area again we would definitely stay in this home.

Perfect location, comfortable accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 3 of our children were in Sarasota for a family wedding. The location was perfect! One block to the beach, close to restaurants and shops, and easy driving distance into downtown Sarasota. The house is well stocked with necessities, the house is adorably decorated, and the beds were comfortable. Thank you for a great experience!

Adorable, clean, comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this lovely Lido cottage. It was just a short walk to the beach and great shops. The updated kitchen was extremely nice and provided everything we needed to feel right at home. We hope to return again soon!

Fabulous beach secret!

  • 5 of 5

Lido Cottage was a dream come true. In all ways, it exceeded my expectations. Not only was the cottage attractively furnished, it was sparkling clean, bright and well organized to the smallest detail. The beds were comfortable, linens fresh, kitchen complete, furniture and and entertainment area inviting. All electronics worked! As promised, the side terrace included a fine selection of beach compliments - two bikes, beach chairs, portable sun shade and gas grill. What a nice gesture by hosts, so guests have these "toys" at hand, instead of having to purchase locally or miss out on entirely. I was also pleased to find all beach and grill gear in excellent condition. A small table and chairs made a nice corner to enjoy wine while designated chef grilled.

Another lovely surprise was well stocked closet of beach towels, soap, shampoo, plentiful paper products - another trip to the store for necessities avoided! The hosts fine attention to detail for our comfort and convenience was exceptional. In addition to the fabulous location a 1/2 block from the beach and ten minute walk to fine dining and shopping at St Armand's Circle, the neighborhood was peaceful and safe. Awakening to birdsong and flowers in bloom was another great treat.

This is a rare find - a truly special place that I hope to return to.
