About Pat and Mark Smith
Mark and Pat Smith reside in Osprey, Florida and both graduated from Sarasota High School. Barbara Armstrong (Mark's Sister) graduated from Sarasota High School and moved to Memphis, TN after marrying her husband Bill.
Pat and Mark Smith purchased this House in 2004
Why Pat and Mark Smith chose Lido Key
Tag Smith the Uncle of Mark Smith (wife Patricia Smith) and Barbara Armstrong (husband Bill Armstrong) built the home in 1940 for his wife. It was later sold to their parents in the late 70's. Mark and his wife Patricia now own the property together with Barbara and her husband Bill. Mark and Pat lived in the house in the late 70's and early 80's and cherished the years while living there. Both couples chose to keep the house and have rented it long term for a number of years. Last year we decided to offer it as a vacation rental and we just finished a major renovation of the house. We all love the house and the location so close to the beach. It is a very special place for our family.
What makes this House unique
Our cottage has lots of big bright windows that create a bright, happy interior space. The vintage tongue and groove pine paneling and ceiling in the great room give such charm, as well as the 3 French doors to the comfortable jalousie porch. The location so close to the beach on beautiful Lido Key completes the fun, restful ambience. We look forward to sharing our happy space with travelers.

A Slice of Heaven
The home is lovely - beds were very comfortable and the house was very clean.
Pat was quick to respond to any questions throughout the process. As well Pat was very accommodating in letting us check in a bit earlier on day of arrival as our flight had us in Sarasota at 1.
The house was well supplied with bath towels, suntan lotion , laundry det etc
Kitchen had everything we needed to make all our meals.
Beach is a 5 minute walk with beach chairs and towels and an umbrella supplied by owner.
The Town public pool is outstanding located next to entrance to beach.. lounge chairs provided at pool and designed for swimming laps of which I did every day.
Beach is one of the top beaches in the country and the sunsets are a different work of art every night.
Walking distance to St Armand with shops and restaurants.
We will be back !
Great hosts, great location. Excited to come back
Nice family get away
The house was very well kept and the beds were comfortable. Not much to do in the yard but great location with a short walk to the beach and to st armonds circle.
Clean, organized, and relaxing. Also, plenty of space! I had a meeting in Sarasota and my husband and I stayed here for an extended weekend. Loved everything. We took the short walk to the beach every evening for sunsets, I walked from the popular shopping circle home one afternoon, and then one day we went to the resort pool for lunch which was located within a minute or two walk. We loved how relaxing the home was. Did I mention great bed! Pam, the host, was great even though we didn’t need a thing. Used the beach chairs and just ran out of time regarding the bikes. If we come back to Sarasota this is where we will stay.
GREAT LITTLE HOUSE IN AN EXCELLENT LOCATION MADE FOR A PERFECT VACATION.
We loved the walk ability of this cute cottage. The beach was easy to access. Walking to Armand’s Circle and back gave us the exercise we wanted after eating at the local restaurants. We also walked to the park for kayaking.
