+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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)

Two hours to Orlando attractions. Minutes to Sarasota airport and 1 hour to Tampa and St. Petersburg airports, parks, museums, sporting events.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again Jan and Chris - we thoroughly enjoyed our 3rd stay in 12 months!

We fly in/out of Tampa since there are no direct flights from our home city into Sarasota. We rent a car for the week at the airport and enjoy the easy and scenic drive south on the Sunshine Skyway. We stop and shop for groceries on the way to Lido Key so that once we arrive and unpack, the comfortable condo feels like our second home.

Other reviewers have consistently shared our experiences.....friendly and helpful owners who will greet you at arrival and answer any questions you have; a well-appointed and very clean unit that has everything you need; and easy walking access to the beautiful beach and shopping/dining on the circle. Everything Sarasota has to offer is just a short drive over the causeway.

People reading this review and considering either of the (2) Living the Dream on Lido units should book with confidence.....5 stars for the destination, property and owners!

It is true you will be Living the Dream on Lido

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home today after a fabulous stay at 103 Chateau Village.

Jan and Chris are passionate about making sure there guests are well taken care of. They personally meet you and show you around their unit and are close by if you need anything attended to.

The condo is immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The kitchen has the amenities if you wish to dine in. There is a nice patio to have your morning coffee or evening cocktail.

We enjoy the beach and it was great to have chairs, umbrellas and cooler provided.

You are only a short walk to the beach and Armand's Circle. We would spend the day at Lido Beach and then Armand's Circle in the evening for many different dinner choices. Lido beach is a place to watch a fantastic sunset. You are only a short drive to downtown Sarasota with many different culinary choices. The stay was truly relaxing and we definitely will be back!

103 Chateau Village

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Jan's condo very much!

The location was great. The beach, public pool and St. Armand's Circle were all walkable. The condo was immaculate and very comfortable. Jan could not have been more welcoming or accommodating! You should stay there!

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the middle of a hurricane, and still Jan came out in high winds and heavy rain to greet us with a friendly smile and ensured we knew where everything was. We loved the condo; so clean and well stocked. The area is so quiet. It was the best nights sleep we have had in a long time. The beach is fantastic for early morning beach walks and then great for soaking up some Florida sunshine in the afternoon. We loved walking to St. Armand's Circle and the area is so safe that we had no problems walking back to the condo after dark. We stocked the fridge from the Publix and used the cooler and beach chairs and umbrella to enjoy some quiet time on the beach. Jan and Chris are amazing people and we enjoyed our chats with them while we stayed there. We will definitely return and highly recommend this condo.

Family vacation, well kept condo.

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the gulf side of Florida and we're hooked! We arrived late on Sunday around 10pm and Janice met us at the condo. As she was showing me around, the first thing I noticed was that the place was spotless! The condo is nicely decorated and has everything you need for a beach vacation. The public beach is one block away and St. Armands Circle is a ten minute walk. We ate at the Blue Dolphin Café in the circle twice; great food with decent prices. We ranked this vacation as one of our top 3 ever! Great location, excellent hosts, and plenty of attractions nearby. We can't wait to visit again!

Great family stay! Beautiful, cozy condo! Location is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Lido Key is by far my favorite vacation spot. We've stayed the resorts, but this time, traveling with two little ones, 8 & 6, we decided we needed a home away from home. Up to date, great decorating, so very clean and so comfortable. Big cozy king in the bedroom and the kids slept the pull out in the living room. They slept great and its easy to pack away in the mornings. It really was home. Just a quick drive up the key to Publix for groceries and we had everything we needed. The kids even loves chasing lizards in the courtyard. The location of this condo is amazing. Literally a 1 block walk off the beach. We packed our chairs and bags and headed down everyday. There are beach toys and umbrellas and chairs there, so we didn't have to buy anything. There's a cute public pool on the beach for when the kids just wanted to jump in and swim. Just a few blocks drive to the Circle which is great for nights out or even a day shopping. We were just a few miles from Mote Marine Aquarium and boat tour. Great day trip! Manatee Beach is right up the Key in Longboat about 15 minutes. You can't beat how beautiful and quiet all the beaches are and the water is warm and clear. It's paradise. This condo is now our place to go for sure. We highly recommend!!!

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!
