Overview

About the property

"Sandy Toes"

Come enjoy these sparkling, newly renovated and furnished units just a half-block to beautiful Lido Beach! Island Dreams Vacation Rentals is a 4-unit beach complex. This listing is for my 1-bedroom "Sandy Toes" unit. Step right into this first-floor rental. The soothing green and blue decor will put you in the island mood the moment you walk through the door! It features the largest living area of the one-bedrooms, with plenty of kitchen cabinets and a convenient dishwasher. The bedroom has a queen bed and large closet for all of your storage needs. The living room has a queen pullout sleeper sofa to allow up to 4 guests.

Location, location, location! We are perfectly centered on this intimate island, and you can have it all for a fraction of the price of staying at a pricey resort. The beach, pavilion and concession stand, public pool, and Lido Beach Resort (with its popular tiki bar and restaurant) are all located just a half-block down our quiet residential street. Paddleboarding, kayak rentals, and the trails and picnic areas at South Lido park are also just a quick walk south. Famous St. Armand's circle - with its eclectic shops and delicious restaurants - is a 10-15 minute stroll to the north through the island's charming paths. And!, Lido is the closest island to downtown Sarasota - with all of its cultural attractions and amenities - just a quick drive over the beautiful Ringling bridge. It doesn't get any better than this!

All units at Island Dreams have recently renovated kitchens, updated baths, flat-screen TV's, beautiful beach-themed furnishings and fully stocked kitchens. There is laundry on site, assigned parking, free wifi and satellite TV, and all beach supplies and towels. Simply everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation!

Please see our other listings and great reviews (all on the same property) at: www.vrbo.com/915968, www.vrbo.com/915792, and www.vrbo.com/915624. We offer a 2-bedroom owner's unit sleeping up to 6 people, and 2 additional one-bedrooms sleeping up to 2-4 people. 2 units are pet friendly.

Cozy, great location, very homey

  • 5 of 5

Can’t beat the location and we met some great co-tenants. Julie had a comprehensive binder with descriptions of nearby town and beaches as well as restaurant reviews. Much appreciated. Apartment was clean and we spent fun nights at table outside our unit or lanai of our new Iowa friends. Can’t beat Lido beach which is half block away.

This was the perfect place for our family to stay for a few days. It's very spacious, with a nice kitchen and large bathroom. Julie was fantastic to work with and I would highly recommend this property to anyone staying near Lido Beach!

Awesome

  • 4 of 5

It was a great place to stay and Julie was quick to respond to anything we needed. The bed is little broken down but that is being taken care of according to Julie but wasn't bad at all. Would recommend this place to any couples coming to Lido Key!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to do a review, Nathan! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. The box spring in your unit did start squeaking recently (as you mentioned), and I have since replaced the entire set with a new Simmons BeautyRest pillow top mattress and box spring set in July 2017. Hope to have you back again soon to enjoy it and this fabulous island. Thanks again! Julie

Great little escape

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my wife for a short mini vacation on the heels of a work trip to Orlando. It was in a perfect location a block off Lido beach and a few blocks from St. Armand's circle. The place was clean and perfect for what we needed. The AC comes from two window units, one in the main room and one in the bedroom. I only mention that because they can be a bit loud if running full out on hot days but for me the white noise is perfect to sleep. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely stay again.

About Julie Chambers

I purchased this property in 2011, after a roundabout path through several cities and professions. It was long my dream to own property by the beach, hence the name Island Dreams, and I look forward to sharing it all with you! Julie

Why Julie Chambers chose Lido Key

I visited Sarasota for the first time in 2010, and immediately knew I wanted to make it my home. This charming small city has all of the benefits of a big city - culture, restaurants, events - along with stunning beaches, friendly people and an amazing quality of life. And Lido Key encompasses all of it. It has a quiet and laid-back, yet sophisticated, beach atmosphere, and its proximity to downtown Sarasota can't be beat.
