10 days in Lido Key

  • 5 of 5

My family has never rented a home for vacation before. We never even considered it. We are hotel people. We were planning for a wedding in Lido Key and VRBO was mentioned as an option for places to stay. So, I looked and looked and stumbled upon this little gem that belongs to Rolayne and Gary. It sounded great, and it was an even better experience than we could have expected. For roughly the same price to stay in an ocean front hotel room, we had our own private pool in a beautifully secluded setting, one block from the ocean. We enjoyed visiting the ocean, but the kids preferred to swim in the pool anyway. They swam in the pool while we had our morning coffee, they swam in the pool before bed, they had the luxury to swim their little hearts out. Everything about this home was clean and beautiful. The owners left a nice detailed guide of things we should know in order to enjoy the home more, as well as suggestions for local dining favorites, etc. We loved Old Salty Dog! We enjoyed the block walk to go kayaking in the mangroves. We loved this experience. We loved the responsiveness of the owners. I just mentioned to Rolayne that the toaster was malfunctioning so that she could address it in the future, not at all expecting her to Amazon Prime a new toaster to our doorstep. She took care of us the way that we would take care of a family if they were staying in our home, and for that we were thankful. I could only hope to have the privilege to stay in this beautiful getaway again. Eternal gratitude from the Zurvalec family to the Fickes family.

Owner's Response: We were pleased to share our home with this family and now consider them members of our "Lido Key family". We strive to have everyone who stays in our home have the same experience as this family who has graciously taken the time to share their thoughts in their review. We hope to have them back anytime they travel in this direction. We will think of you when we next visit and have our morning beverage (coffee for Gary, tea for me) on the lanai and enjoy it just as you did. Thank you for being our guests!! Rolayne and Gary

Cozy home in Lido Key has all you need within walking distance of Lido Beach and St. Armand's Circle

  • 5 of 5

This home is a delightful hideaway to stay at if your wanting to be near St. Armand's Circle, Lido Beach, the park at the end of the Key, or a short drive from Sarasota, or Longboat Key. We were impressed with how clean and well appointed the home was, including 2 full bathrooms, a well stocked kitchen (including both a coffee maker and a Keurig), dishwasher, laundry washer and dryer, heat producing electric fireplace, functional office with a Fax and printer, and TV's in all the rooms hooked to a DVD player.

The stand out was the Lanai at the back of the house. It's actually bigger than the house itself, fully screened in and enclosed, with a roof over the porch lounge area, a heated pool, a wet bar, and more than enough seating if you have family or guests over. On top of that there's another garden like area with a fire pit for even more eating and socializing next to it.

Around all of this is a 6 foot wall for privacy.

The street it's near is mostly quiet with slow moving traffic. The home has 2 areas for parking.

One advantage to it's location is that it's right on a walkway that leads up into St. Armand's Circle (the sidewalk mostly winds thru a median, with trees and little bridges, making it nice to travel on), or down to Lido Key Park on the southernmost tip. It's just a couple of blocks walk to Lido Beach. If your feeling up to a longer walk or a 6 mile run, going from end to end on the key, or over the John Ringling Boulevard Bridge into Sarasota and back, will work nicely.

We had a wonderful time, and this home was an important part of that.

Rolayne and Gary went the extra mile and had a Christmas Tree w/lights, Stockings, cookies and seasonal coffee, making for a very Happy Holiday.

Fantastic Work Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house was booked for myself and 3 colleagues as an alternative to the hotel in which our conference was held. We had a fantastic time being able to relax and connect at this home in Lido. The owner was easy and quick to communicate with. The home was clean and well stocked. We loved the poll, bikes, beach gear and all! Within minutes of shopping and the beach! We can't wait to come back! Thanks!

Great accommodations, with attention to every detail

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic spacious, well furnished patio and poolside. Don't want to leave the pool for the beach. Everything is either new, or very well maintained. Good number of sturdy and comfortable poolside chaises, pool toys (floaters, noodles, etc)

Kitchen is stocked with all necessary appliances and supplies, including, but not limited to electric kettle, blender, ice cream scooper, full array of spices and condiments.

Beds with comfortable quality mattresses, and good linen. Flat screen TVs and satellite TV throughout the house, including the patio. Strong and consistent WiFi.

Had a fantastic vacation, will definitely consider returning in the future.
