Please read our reviews. We are owner operators and live nearby. It’s our goal to make your time at Living the Dream on Lido memorable. We meet all of our guests on arrival to make sure everything is perfect – we appreciate your business.
If you’re looking for a quiet beach community and an island lifestyle than you’re at the right place. The unit is fully updated and decorated in island style with a very comfortable king size bed, flat screen TVs in living room and bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. What’s really nice is at Lido you can park your car and walk (or bike, & bus) as everything you need is nearby. It’s not uncommon for our guests to taxi in for the week.
Like the outdoors? Lido has parks on the north and south end and the kayak park is two blocks away. The beach is a block away and we provide beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. There's bathrooms and snack bar at the beach also.
Hungry? It’s a 5 minute walk to famous St. Armand’s Circle with 15+ restaurants and upscale boutique shopping. Our favorite spots are at Tommy Bahamas restaurant watching the crowds go by while sipping a martini or on the patio at the Columbia with a pitcher of cava sangria made table side. 8th floor Happy Hour at Lido Beach resort is also a great place to meet the locals.
Night on the town? Enjoy beautiful downtown Sarasota’s fine dining, theater, opera, ballet, art galleries, antique shops, and museums or just pass the time while strolling the shops of downtown Sarasota. Longboat key and Siesta Key are minutes away.
