About Jim and Kathie Lyons

Owners on premises, so we're available to you. Married for 34 years, our home towns are Cincinnati and greater Chicago. We've lived in paradise for 18 years and it's our home for always. Our children are in town and we have one beautiful grand daughter and one on the way.

Jim and Kathie Lyons purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jim and Kathie Lyons chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

A new job opportunity brought us here 18 years ago and spent our first night on lido Beach making our decision to live here. It wasn't difficult. We lived on Sarasota mainland, but our dream was to make our home on Lido, and now we have. We are here forever.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll enjoy our mid-30's cottage charm with it's own private yard, great neighbors (us !) and all the comforts of home away from home.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The “Little Mermaid” has it all, charm, location, awesome hosts (Jim and Kathy also know all the great spots to go and are incredibly attentive to every need). Everything is provided, the kitchen and laundry facilities are compact, but complete, every detail is thoughtfully planned. As Jim told us, if you can’t find something, just keep opening a cabinet, and he was right, everything we needed. Bikes are provided, a lovely private deck with gas grill to have quiet evenings if you choose not to go out. The living space is extremely comfortable with a great couch and chairs, eat in table and windows to open and let the breezes in (and the air conditioning is quite and effective). IT is a beautiful place. The decorating is whimsical and delightful – and the place is meticulously kept. All linens are soft and sumptuous and the piles of towels are fluffy and scented. No detail or need has been left unmet.

And, the location! A walk to St. Armands Circle, and a 3 minute stroll to the beach and the local public pool, which is quite nice also. This is a sweet little place, perfect for a couples getaway.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

As frequent vacationers of Lido Beach and the large resort for almost 20 years, we decided to change it up this year a bit with the Little Mermaid cottage. All we can say us WOW. Jim and Kathy were some of the nicest people we have ever met. The hospitality was amazing, yet they gave us the privacy we wanted on vacation away from our high stress jobs in Boston.

Moral of the story: We won't be going back to the resort.....ever. The cottage is the best find on the key. We will be back in the spring!

Thank you Jim and Kathy!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 wonderful days at the cozy Little Mermaid; we were in Sarasota for R&R and house-hunting. It was the perfect place for our needs, being so close to the beach and St. Armand's Circle. The best part of our stay was the owners, Jim and Kathie. They had thought of everything (as mentioned by other reviewers) you could possible need.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Prying ourselves away from our 4 night stay at the Little Mermaid. We felt so comfortable the entire time. Perfect anniversary getaway. We will definitely be back! The fact that every detail was well thought out was so much appreciated. From the extras like the bikes, wagon, chairs, umbrella, beach bag, it was just so perfect! The owners Jim and Kathie were so nice and accommodating and we cant wait to get back!

Decorated Mermaid

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet little space next to the beach. I went through literally the toughest two weeks of my life while staying here and it was so super sweet to be so close to the beach to walk with my son and meditate on how to make things more beautiful again. Thankful. It's a nicely decorated little cottage. It shares a wall with the main house, but is so private with it's own outside space. While I didn't use them, there are bikes right outside your door, and plenty of beach chairs to take to to your beach venture; It is a well stocked home. The owners have thought of everything. I recommend the place to those who want to enjoy the beach, come back to fun decor, and relax in either the toughest spaces of their Life, most joyous, or any season in between: Enjoy!
