About Greg Orquera

I bought this charming house last year, after renting it for about 12 years! I fell in love with the house, lido key, and Lido beach! I live part time in this house, and part time in France, where I'm from.

Greg Orquera purchased this house in 2013

Why Greg Orquera chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

It is at the perfect location! 5 min walk to the beach, 10 min to St Armands Circle, and 10 min drive to Downtown Sarasota (add 5 min to the nearest Golf and it's perfect!)

What makes this house unique

There is a little patio on one side, a terrace and garden view on the other side. It is very quiet, as it is in a residential area. I hope you will love the beach decoration as much as I do (my wife took great care in it...)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Magnifique séjour à lido key! J'y étais avec ma fille ado. La maison est accueillante et confortable. Le charme d'une beach house avec tout les équipements d'une vraie maison! Il y a vraiment tout ce qu'il faut! La plage est vraiment au bout de la rue à 5 minutes de marche! Génial! Les vélos ont été très appréciés pour explorer les différentes plages et se rendre à st-armand's circle prendre une crème glacée! Lido key est à proximité de plusieurs attractions touristiques intéressantes (adultes ou enfants). Greg a été très serviable et à répondu à nos questions rapidement. Nous y retournerons c'est certain!

Perfect Oasis on a Busy Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this lovely spot with my sister and her husband and we could not have been happier. Being there in the height of the season we were able to park the car, walk to the beach and walk to St. Armand's circle each time returning to this lovely home with a quiet beautiful back yard and lovely front patio and table where we had our evening meals. Even though we'd made reservations (a must ) each night we ended up cancelling and getting take out to enjoy the evenings on the patio eating and talking. The home is roomy, clean and well equipped and our breakfasts and lunches were easy to prepare in the kitchen. The washer and dryer were a nice plus. Couldn't have enjoyed it more.

beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful place to stay and everyone associated with it were helpful overcoming a tough start due to unforeseen circumstances. The layout and amenities made it feel very homey, with a relatively open layout that still felt cozy. The landscaping is attractive and helps create privacy despite the close proximity of neighboring properties. Not only is it a short walk to the Gulf beach, but it's also less than a mile to South Lido Park which provides shaded walking trails, Bay and Gulf beaches, and best of all mangrove "tunnels" for kayaks/SUPs. This house includes numerous kayaks with paddles and life vests, so the paddling experience did not cost extra. A must do when on Lido Key. There were also 5 available bikes. St. Armands Circle is also a short walk, and the Publix grocery is a short drive up Longboat Key.

Wonderful House on a Quiet Street

  • 5 of 5

Great light (most of the house overlooks the very green back yard), very pleasant little "cocktails-before-dinner" area on the back patio, well-equipped / new kitchen ... in all a very pleasant stay.

A Supernice stay...all that it is advertized to be!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week and wish we had stayed longer. The House is wonderful, decorated very nicely and fully functional in all regards.

As stated it is a short walk (860 steps according to my fitbit) from the beach. And a half a mile from St Armand Circle. You wont go wanting for anything. The house comes with bicycles and kayaks. We found the house very comfortable and had no issues with any of the appliances etc. The "book" on the table explained how everything worked.

The beach is a very nice and if you go, take cash or a credit card as there is a resort property right there that welcomes guests at the bar and grill.

We will definitely be returning.

For those of you not familiar with the Lido Beach community it is wonderfully situated in an area away from the "high traffic" beaches like Siesta Key, but still only 2 miles from downtown Sarasota!

Go and enjoy, we sure did!

A Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have recently spent 19 nights in Greg's holiday home. The house is surrounded by very expensive homes with friendly approachable neighbours. We all felt very safe and enjoyed living in such a large beautiful home. The house has everything you need ; beach towels, reclining beach chairs, umbrellas , cool boxes, kayaks, bikes. We loved paddling through the nearby mangroves and cycling down to the circle for an afternoon coffee & ice cream . The house is very clean with crisp white expensive feeling bed linens . We loved the Extra large LG washing machine with its 15 min cycle to freshen up our beach clothes each day. The fact that there are 2 tables to dine at and 2 sofas to relax on we never felt we were living on top of one and other, it's a very spacious house. I would definitely book this property again .

This was our 4th Regatta at Lido Key. This was our first stay here. We were very impressed with the on our arrival as it was exactly lint the listing. Property was very clean and well maintained. Customer service by Florence was great. This by far the best accommodations we have had in all our Team SnowFox travels. Would recommend this to all who travel to Lido Key area. Plan to re book for next years Regatta as soon as we get date confirmation.
