About Carolyn Michel

I grew up in St. Louis Mo. and vacationed in Sarasota with my family. My Mom and Dad purchased this great home, and now it belongs to me. I live right around the corner from "Hirsch's landing," so I can easily attend to the home and my guests. I live in Sarasota on Lido Key, and I work as a professional actress at the Asolo Repertory Theatre.

Why Carolyn Michel chose Lido Key

location, location, location! There are views of the water from all over the house, It is a very comfortable 3 bedroom , 2 full baths family home. The Master Bedroom has a large en suite dressing room and bath area with lots of closet space.and a king size bed. The 2 guest rooms can be made into king or 2 twin beds, so it is versatile. cable TV in 2 of the bedrooms and in the family room as well. This is a perfect vacation home for a couple or a family . The kitchen is fully equipped …there is a laundry..sheets and towels and beach towels and a couple of beach chairs are provided. wi-fi also.

Wild Manatees are frequent visitors to the new beautiful dock on this lovely canal.

A place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Hirsch’s Landing is an other word for heaven. Situated on a canal, with a large sitting area, small pool, with a dock with a bench for viewing water creatures, this is a special sanctuary. We have been coming here for eight years, and look forward to more.

A short walk to the Gulf of Mexico, with a nearby wooded nature sanctuary.

So peaceful and yet right around the corner from St Armand’s Circle’s restaurant and shops, this is an ideal location.

Great location. Close to beach and st. Armand's circle. House met all our needs and had a wonderful view of the canal (with manatees coming to the dock to drink many times throughout the week 😉?).

Spacious, bright, scenic with a retro vibe

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults looking for a vacation rental in Sarasota for a family wedding this October. We chose the beautiful Hirches Landing home, and so happy we did! It was the perfect place for friends and relatives to visit – spacious inside and beautiful patio and pool area outside. We even enjoyed our own private dock with a great view from the canal. Being from the Philadelphia area, we especially got a kick out of all the great wildlife we saw (manatees!).

Everyone loved the stylish retro look of the place. I was amazed at how well they have kept everything in the house. It was very clean, very organized, and very accommodating. They have anything you might need, which is important if you are traveling from a distance like we did.

We also think Lido Key is the place to stay in the Sarasota area. You have the beautiful beach on the gulf, St. Armand’s Circle for shopping and dining, and lovely short rides to explore the rest of Sarasota and Longboat Key.

This place has magic...

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the owner lovely and beyond helpful but my family and I had an incredible week there. There were manatees we saw every evening while relaxing on the dock in the evenings or while my little one was splashing around in the pool. Fish were splashing off the dock and blue heron and white crane were commonly seen in the yard. Around the corner from the house to the right is the entrance to the beach at Lido Key and to the left is St. Armand's Circle. We might have driven someplace once the week we were there but basically walked everywhere - it was so relaxing! The house had everything we needed and had a super cool chic vintage 70s vibe - we just adored it and hope to make it a yearly trip. I adored this property!
