Little Lido Beach House

181 Whittier Drive

Sarasota, FL 34236

Welcome to paradise! Little Lido Beach House is located one home in from the white sand beaches of Lido Key and close to the fun and excitement of Downtown Sarasota. This cozy beach house is the ideal getaway for your family vacation or friend's retreat. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms with modern coastal-themed décor gives this property a relaxing beachside atmosphere, and the proximity to the Gulf of Mexico ensures a pleasant sea breeze can be enjoyed while you lounge by the pool or enjoy the views from the rooftop deck.

The home boasts a fully stocked kitchen with beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen overlooks the dining area, a small common area and the deluxe living room. The dining room table seats five people and an additional two can be accommodated at the counter. Just through the sliding glass doors in the living room is the private backyard, complete with a shaded patio, BBQ grill and a heated pool and spa with a tiled pool deck. You can have it all at Little Lido Beach House with its prime location, beautiful backyard and many amenities.


On the first floor of the home you will have two of the three bedrooms. There is also a large living room with sliding glass doors leading out to the patio and pool area. The kitchen is located at the front entrance of the home, and just beyond this is a small dining area and a common space where you can enjoy a lovely meal with your family. The first bedroom will have a plush full mattress, personal TV and an en-suite bathroom with a tiled walk-in shower. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with one full mattress on bottom and a twin on top, as well as a small couch. There is also an additional shared bathroom on the first floor with a tub and shower and a second door leading out to the side yard. Upstairs you will find the third bedroom, which is a master suite with an en-suite bathroom and a personal TV. The master bathroom has a beautifully tiled walk-in shower. The second level also has access to a shared balcony, which has a spiral staircase that leads up to the large rooftop deck, where you can enjoy some of the best views in Lido Key. This home sleeps a total of 8 people.


Relax with a cocktail by the pool in a gorgeous backyard at this property. The entire poolside area is beautifully tiled, and the shaded patio provides a nice reprieve from the sun on hot summer days. You can take a dip in the luxurious spa or spend an evening relaxing on the balcony while you watch the palm trees sway and waves crash on the beach. For an even better view head up the spiral staircase tot the rooftop deck, where you can view the entire panorama. If you would like to venture out this home is in the perfect location. Only one short block away is Saint Armand's circle, which has the best selection of shops and restaurants in all of Sarasota. You could take your group on a short drive over the bridge to Downtown for some more exploring, or take the little ones to the Mote Marine Aquarium to catch a glimpse at what life is like under the sea. If you'd rather enjoy the natural beauty of Lido key, you can take the bikes and kayaks kept at the property down to the local undeveloped parks for a day of bike rides and kayaking in nature, after which you can take a short stroll from the home to watch the sunset on the beach.

** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact Beach House Real Estate at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Beach House Real Estate will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible!

Perfect location, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location. The town was a two minute walk. Shopping and restaurants were really nice. House was fully stocked with everything from beach towels, to a gas grill. Pool was a really nice touch. Quite neighborhood.

Only wish, was that the roof top deck had more furniture. We would have used more often but with 7 of us and only four chairs we couldn’t all enjoy the space.

Beach was a short walk away, beautiful.

We will be back soon!

The house worked well for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

The three bedrooms and bathrooms worked well for our family of eight. My husband and I took one bedroom and bath. One of our two grown sons and his wife had their own bedroom and bath; while our other grown son, his wife and two children had there own bedroom and bath (their bedroom had a full bed,bunk and a futon)..

We all loved the private back yard with the pool; the rooftop deck; and the quiet neighborhood.

My husband thought that the outlet by the sink in the front bedroom bathroom was dangerous because it wasn't a GFI outlet. Also, the downstairs bedroom toward the back of the house never seemed to get cool. Leaving the door open and turning on the fan didn't seem to help.

All in all, we had a wonderful time and we would recommend the house.

Beds were unmade as there was no dryer. Cleaners had to leave to have linens and towels laundered. Cleaners arrived 7:15 pm. It took 4 days for dryer to be replaced. Inadequate air conditioning until day 4. Live roach in granddaughter's bed. Spa did not work until day 4. Agent did pick up our laundry and have it washed. We received a $100 gift certificate. Older portion of house is rundown. Bathrooms you wouldn't want to use. Addition is awesome. Rubbish, recycling in front yard when we arrived. My husband took care of.

Owner's Response: We are extremely sorry for the experience while staying at this property. As soon as we were aware of any problem or situation we took care of it as soon as possible. I believe I was speaking to you as pest control was there as well. We again apologize for the delay of the cleaners as the house should have been ready no later than 4 pm for check in, that was an unacceptable performance on their behalf and the delivery of the dryer being 4 days into your stay was the best we could do when it couldn't be repaired on site. We will look into the condition of the home and use your feedback to improve your concerns. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

Little Lido Beach Idyl

  • 5 of 5

We had the most idyllic stay here in January 2018

After visiting the area for over 20 years we are very familiar with Lido Key and this place is so peaceful and quiet.

It’s perfect, backs right onto the beach, but only a 10min easy walk to St Armands. You can watch the Ospreys fly overhead while on the pool loungers and admire the visiting snowy egrets.

The house is spotless and has everything you need, with a mixture of old and new.

Admire the 360 degree panorama from the roof terrace and enjoy the spectacular famous Lido Beach sunsets.
