Delightful studio apartments tucked away on exciting Lido Key. Nestled amid a tropical garden, the units are steps from the beautiful white sands of Lido beach (voted one of the top 25 beaches in the U.S. ), with the turquoise waters of the gulf of Mexico just beyond. The beach is a 6 minute walk and St. Armands 14 minutes, according to Google Maps. Quiet side roads and boulevards are perfect for a morning jog or a casual strolling to nearby st. Armand's circle, which hosts some of the worlds most exclusive restaurants and shops. Across the bay is Sarasota, Florida's cultural center and home to a never-ending variety of indoor and outdoor activities, from fine museums and theaters to world-class golf courses and tennis facilities. The units are completely furnished and fully equipped to make your vacation worry free. The units have full kitchens and sleeper sofas in the living rooms.
The room is much smaller that it looks in the photos. We could not get the dishwasher open, when I opened the pantry door it fell off. The screen door to the sliding door would not budge. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. The TV remote must have needed new batteries. The beach was kind of far to walk and St Armand Circle definitely was not in walking distance. I really did not enjoy the room.
On arrival was a bit doubtful about the property which was quite dated in appearance however it is clean, comfortable and has all you will need. A great location for St Armands Circle and the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Very good value to be so close to such a beautiful area. Make use of the great value bike hire.
This was just what we were looking for: close to the beach, pool, kitchen. The location trumped the quality of the studio. While it was clean it felt dated in some ways and the kitchen was lacking some of the essentials. Also, the blinds did little to keep out morning light, so if you're looking to sleep in - bring a mask.
The owners were very helpful and prompt in their responses.
We spent most of our time just sitting at the beach or going out to eat.
Great place to relax.
Very small units in four-unit buildings (less than 280 sq ft) that look somewhat worn (broken microwave handle, ill-fitting cupboard doors, minimal kitchen hardware). Over ¼ mile to beach. Nice park nearby. Nice beach.
We enjoyed St. Armand's shopping, food and several beaches.
The "heated" pool was closed the entire length of our stay, even at 85 degrees. Our floors turned our feet black, so we wore socks and turned the socks black! Someone in a neighbouring bungalow had extremely loud screaming fits one evening and again in the morning.
