About the property

1st house across from Lido's White Sand Beach*.5 mile walk to St Armand's Circle

This listing was previously for the rear unit of the duplex. On February 1, 2018, the larger, nicer unit became available for vacation rentals! So the reviews prior to Feb 1 2018 were for the rear 1 BR unit but it's mostly booked now so we've updated the listing for the 2 BR unit!

Live the dream on Lido Key in this adorable home! It is the FIRST house across the street from the public beach, snack bar and public pool. WALK to St. Armand's Circle (0.4 miles).

This is the front of a duplex. Front unit is a 2 BR/1 BA with big covered patio and parking right in front.

Adorable 1939 built beach house - freshly painted - the first house across the street from the beautiful white sand of Lido Key! Short walk (10 minutes) to the world famous St. Armand's Circle and it's quaint Restaurants, Shopping and Entertainment.

This is the front of a duplex house which has 2 bedrooms (queen bed and two twin beds) and one bath with shower/tub combo. The house is immaculate and beautiful, completely turn-key with beach décor and well stocked kitchen and bath. Has it's own washer/dryer, dishwasher and large covered patio.

Catch the spectacular Florida sunsets every night, listen to some music on the beach or St Armand's, and rest assured, you will enjoy making your memories here!

Will consider pets but we need DETAILS and your commitment for repairs. I had a big sweet dog eat our Drexel Heritage sofa! But we love dogs!

Regarding TV and internet, the cottage has Comcast Xfinity service with upgraded internet speeds of 75Mbps/10Mbps. And the tv has 140+ channels including CNN, Food Network, Hallmark, HBO, National Geographic, Turner Broadcasting Service (TBS), The Learning Channel (TLC), Nickelodeon, and ESPN.

About Owner

Love, love, love this cottage and location! The beach is nicer and quieter than the big public Siesta beach (and you don't have to worry about parking because you'll live RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE MAIN BEACH)! Someday my plan is to rebuild here so I can get gulf views from the second story! For now, you can all enjoy it!!!

Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner chose Lido Key

Location! Location! Location!!!! And St Armand's Circle is a dream!!! I love all the quaint shops and restaurants there.

This is a VERY quiet street on Lido. When you want some action, you can go across the street or walk a half mile to the Circle. Then retreat to this lovely quiet family neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Just bring your flip flops and bathing suit! We provide the beach chairs, towels, rafts, noodles, sand toys, etc!

Our stay at Lido Beach was nice. The house we rented was conveniently close to the beach, giving us a chance to go whenever we want. Also the Armand Circle was a good walking distance away

Everything was great!

Amazing house, location and wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here for a week and could have stayed forever. Our two small Yorkies had just as much fun and enjoyed it as much as we did. It's a VERY short walk from St. Armands Circle and is literally across the street from beautiful Lido Beach. It's also a very short drive from Siesta Key Beach (rated USA's #1 beach) if you have a car or rental car. Off street driveway parking was extremely convenient to park our rental and get around, although we were looking at wedding venues and houses so we wouldn't have needed a car since so many things are within walking distance.

The house itself is nicely decorated with a very beach house feel. It is very clean and has everything you need. If you don't have a car, the local Publix can deliver groceries to you directly and the kitchen is fully stocked with clean dishes, and everything else you would possibly need, including a small charcoal grill outside. We also had a new bag of charcoal provided for us.

The owner, Sue, is extremely nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this rental and would certainly rent here over and over again.

The Gulf is a beautiful body of water and this house provided us with a very nice and relaxing vacation for my Fiance and small Yorkies!

Very Nice, Quiet Spot - Seconds From The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a nice visit to Sarasota, and stayed at thus property for 10 day. This is a very nice, quaint, and clean cottage with Lido Beach right across the street. Also, it's probably a 15 minute walk to St. Armand's Circle. We would definitely stay here again!

This is the best location on Lido Key! Quiet family neighborhood but a short walk to everything! The beach/pool/snack bar/ is a 1 minute walk across the street. Plus, you're right off St. Armand's Circle so you can walk to all of the shops/restaurants just a half mile away. There are also great places to eat right across the street. The beach snack bar - believe it or not - has GREAT food (and great specials Thu-Sun) and so does the Lido Beach Resort next to it. They have a happy hour 5-7 every night with a half price food/drink menu that is wonderful! You can eat at their tiki bar poolside or on the 8th floor bar overlooking the beach at sunset! Then right over the bridge to the mainland is downtown Sarasota with all of its attractions and culture! Can't beat it!
