About Nitza

We are a professional couple in the technology and medical fields. We designed the apartment with simplicity and comfort in mind. By supplying all the household amenities and keeping the home tidy and well organized, we can provide our guests with an effortless and relaxing experience.

Nitza purchased this condo in 2015

Why Nitza chose St. Armands

We are from the Boston area and we were looking long and hard for a beach vacation place with the cultural benefits of home. We were tired of the daily traffic negotiations and we were looking forward to using the car as little as possible. This is a great location for all that and we simply LOVE it!

What makes this condo unique

Deal directly with the owner. Beach, pool, great restaurants, shopping, million dollar home neighborhood, walking, cycling, sunsets.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Unit 25B caters to your every need. The owners attention to detail sparkles throughout. You would be hard pressed to find better accommodations anywhere in this area. Minutes away from upscale shopping and dining as well as a short walk to the beautiful Lido beach. This all adds up to the ultimate stress free getaway! We have already booked our 2019 trip!

Beautiful condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This condo at the Kingston Arms was absolutely beautiful, spotless and equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay.

The whole unit has been recently renovated, providing a stylish kitchen, with every appliance of the highest quality and a good size bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The bedroom is large and comfortable, with an extra large bed and flat screen television.

A minute's walk away is the fabulous St Armand's Circle, with its wide choice of shops and restaurants, while a three minute walk will take you to the lovely beach on Lido Key.

Can't wait to be back.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Kingston Arms a number of times over the years we were well familiar with the area and all of the excellent restaurants, beaches and other attractions St Armands and Downtown Sarasota has to offer.

This was the first time we had stayed in this Condo and we were well impressed with the attention to detail. The Condo was very well equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable vacation. The Kitchen and Bathroom has been recently remodelled giving the Condo a modern and clean feel. The appliances were also well thought out providing everything needed with flat-screen TV and Hi Fi to the lounge area and a further flat-screen TV to the bedroom. The bedroom has good hanging space for clothes and is ideal for a vacation stay or even longer. The Kitchen area was well equipped with a good sized fridge and the all important icemaker. Cooking appliances were almost new including hob, oven and microwave. Crockery, Cutlery and everything you could possibly need is to be found in the cupboards. The lounge area is spacious and comfortable and from arriving it was evident that the owner of this Condo had taken the time to ensure that everything had been thought out to ensure guests have the most comfortable stay.

The location is absolutely perfect too having everything within walking distance, beaches, bars, restaurants, clothing and gift shops.

We wouldn't hesitate to return to this property or recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing and comfortable vacation.

The unit is fabulously renovated, the ocean is a sublime aqua, shopping and restaurants are without peer....all within minutes of walking. (1 minute to shops/cafes, 7 minutes to beach).

Only two concerns for us that may or may not affect your choice: the sunny pool area is fabulous but there is no true shady area to stretch if you seek refuge from the bright Florida sun, it's really tough. This condo community is perfect for senior citizens and their grandchildren. We were not the right age, at least not in the winter months. Gorgeous area! You will not require a car unless you need to shop for groceries....but there are car services available in the area. Bring your sunscreen!!!!!

Kingston Arms, St Armands Circle. Property Id. 738085.

  • 5 of 5

I rented Apartment 25B for three & a half weeks and we found the accommodation excellent. It was furnished beautifully and had every single item you required for the holiday. Not only were there an extensive range of all cooking and dining utensils, as well as great entertainment products, there were also unexpected additional items like beach chairs, beach bags and sun protection tent shades for our use.

Unfortunately the only thing missing were guests staying at Kingston Arms. The place was like a morgue with only a handful of people, in total, around the pool in the whole 23 days we were there. Although it was disappointing not to meet anybody at Kingston Arms, it didn't however spoil our wonderful trip.

We had many wonderful days on the glorious beaches @ Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island, great food up & down that island as well as delicious meals at the St Armands Circle restaurants.

I would highly recommend the accommodation and maybe rent it again, but in January thru March when it is busier.

Nearest Beach
0.25 Miles
Lido Beach
Car: not necessary

There are lots of things to do, catering to a wide variety of interests. In addition to Lido's beautiful white sand beach with gorgeous sunsets, if you like nature, go to South Lido County Park (also known as Ted Sperling Park) for hiking, swimming and kayaking. Or visit the exquisite Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. If you like the performance arts, Florida Studio Theater, Sarasota Opera House, the Asolo Theater and the Players Theater, and Van Wezel Performing Arts are there for your entertainment. If you want to go shopping and your interests vary - and I am using myself as an example - you can find ceremonial masks from Africa (head to the Nontando Store ), the latest designers' fashion boutiques (in St Armands Circle, you are already there!), and antiquing and bargain hunting (at The Women's Exchange store). You can find it all! And to top it off, there are museums: The Ringling Museum of Arts, the Science Museum, the Museum of Asian Art and the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. No wonder this place draws visitors from near and far!
