Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Lido Key

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Lido Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches, not only in Florida, but in the United States. In 2009, the beach was completely re-nourished with its renowned soft, silky white sand. The world famous sunsets off the shores of Lido Beach draw not only our visitors but local residents as well. All there to soak in one of natures most spectacular performances. The view is so surreal that it is not uncommon to see people clap their hands in the joy they receive from this experience.

All of this is just a short stroll from the cottage.

Wonderful 5 days at the beach - best place in Lido we've stayed thus far!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful little mother-in-law suite attached to the main house. The two properties are separated by the garage. We were actually pretty much alone at the property the whole time, except a few nights when the owners were staying in the main house.

The place is very clean and is perfect for two people for a week. There is a small fridge in the unit, which was fine for us since we like experiencing the local eateries rather than cooking meals in on vacations. There is a convection oven as well, which worked well when we wanted cinnamon rolls for breakfast one morning.

We experienced no problems and the Property Manager, Vikki, was extremely friendly and was available if we needed her. We are looking forward to staying here again soon.

Thank you for a great vacation!

Beautiful~So Much to do and see!

  • 5 of 5

This is a peaceful, tastefully designed little hide-away~love all the palm trees brought in!! The owner , George is always kind, attentive, and responsive ~ He designed a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area~ for those of you unfamiliar with it, you will find the location a dream~ I don't typically return to a place over again, but have had the pleasure of enjoying this space a few times over the years, and as always, enjoy ! I Love the early morning walks along Lido (I have seen the same folks exercising there over the last 15 years!) rollerblading down the large sidewalks on Longboat key, paddle boarding or kayaking the intercostal and its many keys, and all the wildlife~walking the Ringling bridge watching the sun rise over the beautiful Sarasota Bay, soaking in the gulf, walking the shops on St. Armands, downtown SRQ, or Anna Maria, boating out at Egmont key and snorkeling around the old fort from the Spanish American War~love , love , love this part of the country~ so pretty! Thank you George!

Great location, amenities, price and very accommodating. Cozy cottage within walking distance to beach and shopping/restaurants. Nice to have laundry facility, small kitchen, and full size refrigerator.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was in the perfect location! Only took us a couple of minutes to walk to the beach and about ten minutes to walk to St. Armand's Circle. The place was very clean and everyone was very helpful and friendly! Perfect for a couple.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 2 week stay at this wonderful cottage on Lido Key. We loved the privacy and the surrounding palm trees. Yet we were a five minute walk to the beach and a short walk to St Armand's Circle with its stores and restaurants. It was beautifully furnished and had all the necessary amenities including wi-fi. Even though the kitchen is small, it had everything we needed. We were able to cook several meals. The use of the large refrigerator and washer and dryer was a plus. Vicki, the manager, was very helpful. She gave us recommendations for restaurants and attractions in the area. We had a great stay here.

Cute cottage close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just recently stayed and loved the cottage and the location. It's the perfect place for a couple looking to stay on Lido key that is close to the beach and St. Armands Circle. You can just about see the beach (you can actually see the pool that is right in front of the beach) from the driveway to the cottage. St. Armands is about a 7-10 minute walk from the house. The cottage had everything we needed and even included some beach chairs and towels we could use and fast wifi. George and Vicki (property manager) were great to work with and very responsive. They were so patient and flexible with us when we had to change our stay last minute, literally, when we had a family medical emergency the day we were to come down. They even offered to extend our stay! I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking to stay on Lido Key or the surrounding area. Looking forward to going back.

Beautiful St. Armands Circle, with its collection of restaurants & pubs, daiquiri decks, ice cream parlors, boutiques and specialty shops is a short 5 minute walk from the villa.

The Lido Pavilion, located on the beach is 50 yards from the front door. Grant Drive is one of the quietest streets on Lido Key allowing you to bask in the simple pleasures of island life. At both ends of Lido Key there are Parks that you can bike or walk through, enjoying special 'look-outs' to the beautiful Mangroves surrounding that portion of Lido Key. Kayak rentals are available to get up close and personal with the natural shore lines surrounding Sarasota bay.

Mote Marine, a beautiful Aquarium where you can explore the many beautiful sea animals that live in the Gulf of Mexico is located just off the north end of the key.

Over the Ringling Bridge to mainland Sarasota you can take advantage of many wonderful experiences and a rich cultural community. From the Ringling Museum, to the ballet, opera or concerts at the Van Wezel, to gorgeous downtown Sarasota with its picturesque bay-front. With street names like Lemon, Orange, Pineapple, and Coconut it is a very tropical setting. Downtown Sarasota also boasts a beautiful movie theatre, library, plenty of shopping, and wonderful restaurants.

This beautifully renovated beach cottage, nestled on a little piece of paradise, is just a stones throw from Lido Beach. A fresh and friendly place to relax, unwind and enjoy your private, lush surroundings. By the way, when we say renovated, we mean remodeled to the “studs”, not just a coat of paint. This charming cottage has new, professionally installed hardwood flooring, crown moldings, and ceiling fans. The kitchen has been outfitted with brand new cherry cabinets, new fixtures and topped with an exotic piece of granite. A GE convection oven, microwave and induction cooktop allow you to prepare meals. In addition to the coffee maker and toaster there is also an outside propane barbecue for your use. All living room furniture has been recently purchased including the flat screen LCD television. Cable TV and wireless internet are available for your enjoyment at no charge. The outside temperature is usually perfect but just in case, a new Central A/C & Heat has been installed. The Queen sized bed, with its comfortable mattress and quality pillows will afford you a peaceful nights sleep, leaving you refreshed and ready for a great day. The bathroom, with decorator porcelain tiles throughout has been outfitted with Kohler fixtures, a vessel sink and Tommy Bahama style cabinets. A forceful shower with seemingly endless supplies of hot water will support one shower after another. Bath towels and bed linens are provided for your use. Your front deck, fully fenced and private is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee with a newspaper or an evening beverage with good company and personal conversation. Our villa is smoke free, please refrain from smoking inside the unit.
