About Maureen or Matt Morris

We have lived in Sarasota for over 35 years. Love the beach and warm weather but have come to appreciate the cultural attractions that Sarasota has to offer and enjoy the many dining options as well.

Maureen or Matt Morris purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Maureen or Matt Morris chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

It's a great get-a-way spot close to the beach and attractions but still has a quiet and residential feeling. Feels like you live here!

A great week on Lido Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This place was nearly perfect. The only things that could have made it better would have been a pool and a butler (LOL). Really for a week, a month the location, the cottage, the owners attention to your needs is very good!

Charming,, pristine cottage close to beach and St. Armands

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for my sisters to stay in while attending a wedding in Sarasota. We found the cottage in pristine condition, comfortable, tastefully decorated, bright and airy. It felt very spacious for 4 people and we also enjoyed sitting outside in the front of the cottage. Every possible amenity was provided and much appreciated. It is located on a quiet residential street, a 5 min walk to the beach, and 15 min into St. Armands Circle. We would would love to come back and spend a month!

Well-kept comfortable cottage a block from Lido Beach

  • 4 of 5

This is an historic cottage (one of a number - 7?) built by Ringling for his staff in the 1920s. It has two bedrooms, and two bathrooms with a washer/dryer in the second bathroom. The space could not be more efficiently used, in a good way. The bedrooms are smallish, but the living and dining areas are generous and comfortable. There has clearly been a recent renovation, and the kitchen in particular seems nearly new. I don't want to reiterate information already provided by the owner, but it looks like many new systems, including A/C and major appliances, and again the overall effect is great comfort in a cottage, a tribute to the designer and decorator. We enjoyed the quirkiness of some of the furniture; overall, the effect was comfort and utility. In the kitchen, our only criticism has to do with the cooking utensils (not pots and pans so much as spatulas and stirrers etc) (A thought: there is a new spice store in St Armands Circle, and one wonders if they could assemble a set of common spices and herbs for VRBO landlords to stock for renters' use?) The cottage is an easy walk to Lido Beach to the West, and not much further to St. Armands Circle to the North or the park to the South.

Exactly what we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

Matt an Maureen's Lido Cottage was everything we were hoping for and more. It was like our very own beach cottage. Everything was clean and well taken care of. The location was within walking distance of the beach and St. Armands Circle. Communication was great from booking through departure. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you Matt and Maureen!
