Please read our reviews. We are owner operators and live nearby. It’s our goal to make your time at Living the Dream on Lido memorable. We meet all of our guests on arrival to make sure everything is perfect – we appreciate your business.

If you’re looking for a quiet beach community and an island lifestyle than you’re at the right place. The unit is decorated in island style with a king size comfortable bed, flat screen TVs in living and bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. What’s really nice is at Lido you can park your car and walk (or bike) as everything you need is nearby. It’s not uncommon for our guests to taxi in for the week.

Like the outdoors? Lido has parks on the north and south end and the kayak park is two blocks away. The beach is a block away and we provide beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler.

Hungry? It’s a 5 minute walk to famous St. Armand’s Circle with 15+ restaurants and upscale boutique shopping. Our favorite spots are at Tommy Bahamas restaurant watching the crowds go by while sipping a martini or on the patio at the Columbia with a pitcher of cava sangria made table side.

Night on the town? Enjoy beautiful downtown Sarasota’s fine dining, theater, opera, ballet, art galleries, antique shops, and museums or just pass the time while strolling the shops of downtown Sarasota. Longboat key and Siesta Key are minutes away.

Linens, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler provided – just bring your toothbrush! If you forgot it – ask! We probably have it.

You name it and its nearby - golf, beach, bike, boat, sailing, some of the best fishing, fishing charters, aquariums, museums, shopping, wind surfing, kite boarding, swimming, great walking areas, theaters, opera, and on and on.

Here is a sampling of what's nearby!

•Ringling Museum (John Ringling was an art collector)

•Segway Rentals (fun way to tour the town)

•Selby Botanical Gardens (amazing display of orchids)

•Mote Marine Aquarium (fish lovers place and great for kids)

•Van Wezel Performing Arts Center

•Marina Jacks (downtown on the water restaurant with a nice outdoor bar)

•Ca’ d’Zan Mansion (John & Mable Ringling house)

•Myakka State Park (gators and airboats)

•Busch Gardens (hour north)

•Sarasota Opera (located in the theatre district)

•Kennedy Space Center (nice day trip)

Wonderful vacation "Living the Dream" on Lido Key

  • 5 of 5

This adorable condo was perfect for our needs. Janice, the owner, was very accommodating and went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. The place was very clean and decorated beautifully. It had all the essentials plus additional items that we would not expect to be provided! It was just a block to the beach and walking distance to St. Armand's Circle. We couldn't have asked for a better location! Janice allowed us to use her kayaks and even drove us to the launch and picked us up when we were finished. I can't say enough about how welcomed and taken care of we felt during this trip. We travel to Sarasota several times a year and this was by far our favorite place we have stayed.

Cozy; convenient location

  • 5 of 5

I loved this unit. Very cute. The location is wonderful - about a 12 minute walk to St. Armands Circle. If you are a walker (or runner), it's close to the beach and a park. I would definitely stay there again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay, in warmly and tastefully decorated condo. Jan and Chris have made sure that the unit has everything you may need during your stay. Only minutes from the beach in one direction and minutes to dining, shopping or window browsing in the other. Quiet, safe neighbourhood.

Hope to return soon!

It doesn't get any better than this. Located at the last barrier island and within walking distance to St. Armands Circle one of the re-eminent shopping areas on the west coast of Florida. To the north Longboat Key and Anna Maria islands. To the south Siesta and Manasota keys. Downtown Sarasota is only a few miles away. Walk the bridge!
