About Mark Mattia

We are world travelers and consider our surroundings paramount when on vacation. We furnished our home based upon our standards, from the quality of linens to the beautiful gardens. We know how important vacation time is and hope to make yours one of the best ever.

Why Mark Mattia chose Lido Shores

We had been interested in this area for several years. Lido Shores has private beach access making it the most exclusive beach in Sarasota. It is a ten minute walk to St. Armands and close to downtown Sarasota. Perfect location was the major driver for our purchase. We plan to live here after our retirement.

What makes this house unique

The easy 2 block stroll to the private beach access, the beach itself (no crowds), the large heated private pool and the great terrazzo floors made the decision to buy an easy one.

Comfortable home with a private beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, manager, beach, pool and location. I can honestly say we have no complain. The house is well kept, spacious and clean. The property manager promptly responded to our messages and was very organized and detailed. The beach was perfect, we practically had the beach to ourselves. The pool was spacious and clean. The home is in a great location, close to the beach and to stores/restaurants. We will surely return to this property as it was just the home away from home we were searching for.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Location was minutes from St. Armands Circle AND a short beautiful walk to your private access beach. House was great with a mid-century vibe and supplied all the beach essentials. Great rental!!

Good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

House good but needs a bit of tlc the two bedrooms are a good size but the third bed room only has a pull down bed. The pool only has two loungers which was ok for us but families would struggle. The pool is a good size and we spent a lot of time in it.

Location, Location, Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We walked everywhere! 5 minutes to the private beach, 10 minutes to all the shops and restaurants in St. Armand’s Circle and surrounding area, right out the door to the bike trail up Long Boat Key to Anna Maria Island and private pool right in the backyard! This was our 2nd visit to this home and we are planning a 3rd, that’s how much we love it there! Very attentive landlord!

Nearest Beach
Lido Beach
Car: necessary

This part of Lido Beach is over a mile away from the public access so it is quiet and away from the crowd. You will often find yourself being the only ones on the beach. Watch the sunset while enjoying cocktails under the gazebo. This is heaven.
