Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Lido Key - White Sands Tropical Paradise

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Behind a privacy wall you will find this completely renovated home with all new furnishings and tropical landscaping. Outdoor living space is as large as indoor space. It is a leisurely 5 minute stroll (1571 feet) from your front door till your toes are in the sands of Lido beach or take a short walk to St. Armand's Circle for your morning coffee, leisurely afternoon shopping, or an elegant dinner in the evening. The Ritz Carlton Beach House is just a few blocks away as well as the Lido Beach Club. Drive ten minutes across the bridge and be in downtown Sarasota for some fun nightlife if that is what you desire.

Very well maintained property in a great location equipped with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this Lido Key property! The owners have thought of everything that you could possibly need for your stay, so you don't have to worry about anything other than enjoying yourself. We are already looking at availability so we can reserve our next visit.

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.

Great home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home has great outdoor space. It features outdoor seating, covered patio seating, and poolside seating. The pool is perfect for cooling down & relaxing. The whole thing is screened to keep it bug free. The home is well equipped with everything you need - including a shed full of beach gear. The house is quiet, private, & secluded. At the same time, it is less than a 10 minute walk to St. Armond's circle (a large, fun shopping & eating district) & no more than a 5 minute walk to the beach. The best part of this property is the owners. When we arrived, we found the cleaning service had made a mistake on our check in date & hadn't cleaned. We were obviously upset & called the owners. They felt so bad, they returned our entire week's rental. We told them that was too generous, but their reply: "That's the kind of people we are." Well, the cleaners came the next day & the home was lovely. The cleaning service even sent us a gourmet food basket & $50 gift card. Bottom line: a mistake happened and the owners made it right! We would go back to the house anytime. Great property, great location, great people.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home has the perfect location ~ close to the beach, close to the kayak launch, close to St. Armand's Circle for dining and shopping! The home is very well maintained and provides everything you would need for a relaxing vacation.

Inside, from the well equiped kitchen to the luxurious beds, it has all the comforts of home. Outside provides bikes, beach carts, chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, and a lanai with a comfy sofa, dining table, TV, and a pool! My favorite is sitting on the lanai first thing in the morning calm and listening to the birds. It is truly a peaceful paradise.

Very nice home...perfect for a relaxing get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place where we could simply relax and recharge and this home was absolutely perfect. The location was in close proximity to our favorite beach and within walking distance to St. Armand's Circle where we could shop, enjoy a meal, or just have a drink or two. The private lanai with pool was the best place to relax after a day at the beach. It was so nice having a home to return to instead of a cold hotel room.

The house was well appointed with everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, dishes, and utensils. The hardwood floors and decorative molding gave the home a lot of character and charm. It was also very well maintained and clean.

I would recommend this home to anyone that is looking for a comfortable, quiet, centrally located home in the St. Armand's Circle area. Shopping and restaurant options are well within walking distance as well as beach and kayaking access.

Rolayne and Gary made the rental experience very easy and they were very responsive to our questions. I am always a little nervous renting online because you never know what you might end up with. You can rest assured that this home lives up to the positive reviews and pictures that are included on this site. I would definitely rent this property again. We had the best week! Thanks Rolayn and Gary!

Simply a fantastic home--we were pleased in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, baby daughter, dog, and I all had a wonderful time at the house. I couldn't tell what distances would be like on Lido Key, but having walked in all directions, I can assure you this is a perfect location. You are a 5 minute walk to the beach or 5 minutes to the kayak launch in Ted Sperling Park (we rented from www.ikayaksarasota.com and had a good time). You can make it to St Armand's Circle in a very pleasant 15 minute walk, and you will find everything you need there--be sure to check out the numerous unique shops and eat at Columbia Restaurant (www.columbiarestaurant.com) and order dessert--you won't be disappointed. It is also a very easy drive back into Sarasota, about ten minutes to drive to downtown and interesting restaurants and shops in the Main Street area, or a few more minutes to botanical gardens or the Ringling Estate (a highlight of the trip for us).

You will love the lanai--basically a giant screened-in porch that encompasses an outdoor living room and pool area. In the perfect fall weather, we spent much of our time there. With a baby, we almost didn't want to go the beach because the pool was so enjoyable. The lanai has courtyards on two sides, and the whole area is very private with a high wall.

The home furnishings were recently updated and gave the space a wonderful home-like feel. Very quickly we felt like we belonged and looked forward to returning from our daily adventures around the island and around the Sarasota area.

Perhaps the best thing about the house is working with Rolayne and Gary--they are a pleasure to communicate with and truly desire for their guests to have every comfort of home on vacation. I am a bit of a foodie and very particular about kitchens, but was very pleased with all the supplies and utensils available in the kitchen--we made some delicious meals during our stay.

I would recommend this house to anyone, and in fact have been doing my best to make friends and family jealous of our time. We hope to return someday, and if we are ever in the Sarasota area, this house will be first on the list. It is just everything we would want.
