About Nitza

We are a professional couple in the technology and medical fields. We designed the apartment with simplicity and comfort in mind. By supplying all the household amenities and keeping the home tidy and well organized, we can provide our guests with an effortless and relaxing experience.

Nitza purchased this condo in 2015

Why Nitza chose Sarasota

We are from the Boston area and we were looking long and hard for a beach vacation place with the cultural benefits of home. We were tired of the daily traffic negotiations and we were looking forward to using the car as little as possible. This is a great location for all that and we simply LOVE it!

What makes this condo unique

Deal directly with the owner. Beach, pool, great restaurants, shopping, million dollar home neighborhood, walking, cycling, sunsets.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Ultimate getaway. Great Location. Lido Beach and St Armands Circle
average rating of 4.8333335 based on 6 reviews


  • 5 of 5

The unit is fabulously renovated, the ocean is a sublime aqua, shopping and restaurants are without peer....all within minutes of walking. (1 minute to shops/cafes, 7 minutes to beach).

Only two concerns for us that may or may not affect your choice: the sunny pool area is fabulous but there is no true shady area to stretch out.....so if you seek refuge from the bright Florida sun, it's really tough. This condo community is perfect for senior citizens and their grandchildren. We were not the right age, at least not in the winter months. Gorgeous area! You will not require a car unless you need to shop for groceries....but there are car services available in the area. Bring your sunscreen!!!!!

Kingston Arms, St Armands Circle. Property Id. 738085.

  • 5 of 5

I rented Apartment 25B for three & a half weeks and we found the accommodation excellent. It was furnished beautifully and had every single item you required for the holiday. Not only were there an extensive range of all cooking and dining utensils, as well as great entertainment products, there were also unexpected additional items like beach chairs, beach bags and sun protection tent shades for our use.

Unfortunately the only thing missing were guests staying at Kingston Arms. The place was like a morgue with only a handful of people, in total, around the pool in the whole 23 days we were there. Although it was disappointing not to meet anybody at Kingston Arms, it didn't however spoil our wonderful trip.

We had many wonderful days on the glorious beaches @ Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island, great food up & down that island as well as delicious meals at the St Armands Circle restaurants.

I would highly recommend the accommodation and maybe rent it again, but in January thru March when it is busier.

Winter at Kingston Arms

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have rented this unit for the last two years and will rent it again this coming winter. It is in a charming little community just steps from St. Armands Circle. Lots of restaurants, stores and fun on the circle. We really enjoy the people who own and rent there. That is the main reason we return each year. (we have been renting at Kingston Arms the last four years) Location is everything. the beach is wonderful and only a block and a half away. Easy and fun walk. The new owner has indicated (pictures) many improvements to the unit, which we can't wait to see and enjoy. The proximity to downtown Sarasota with all of it's charm. restaurants, stores and activities, including many theatres and festivals adds to the fun. Also, the Ringling Museum is a must!

Private feeling condo in the middle of the best part of Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks last December, 2014, and found it to be extremely relaxing, with a quiet, hidden feel, though it's right around the corner from Tommy Bahamas restaurant. My husband and I (60+) loved eating breakfast on the 2nd floor balcony, looking out on the pool. The condo has an open, light atmosphere, especially compared to another condo we stayed at recently. We used the warm, clean pool and hot tub daily. It is wonderful to be able to watch sunsets on the beach and walk on St. Armand's anytime we want. One thing newcomers may not realize (I grew up in Sarasota) is how much easier it is to drive from St. Armand's to other parts of Sarasota, compared to driving from further out on Longboat or any other key in the often heavy traffic of high winter season, Location here is a great advantage. And, of course, it is possible to get most any place by bus.

From seeing the photos of the updated furnishings and appliances, it looks like our stay in December, 2015, will be even more pleasant than last year's!

Lovely condo and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo during the first two weeks of May, 2015. This was soon after the current owners purchased it. They were extremely nice to work with and obviously cared about providing a wonderful vacation experience for their guests. When we arrived we were impressed at how pleasant and clean it was. The condo was very comfortable with large airy rooms and everything we needed for our stay, including kitchen supplies, linens, etc. The property was beautifully maintained with a wonderful large and sparkling clean pool. The lovely two story condo complex was very private and quiet even though it is just right around the corner from St. Armand’s Circle where there are many great restaurants and shops. It is also only two short blocks from beautiful Lido Beach. The location couldn’t be more perfect. We highly recommend it and definitely hope to stay there again soon.

Nearest Beach
0.25 Miles
Lido Beach
Car: not necessary

There are lots of things to do, catering to a wide variety of interests. In addition to Lido's beautiful white sand beach with gorgeous sunsets, if you like nature, go to South Lido County Park (also known as Ted Sperling Park) for hiking, swimming and kayaking. Or visit the exquisite Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. If you like the performance arts, Florida Studio Theater, Sarasota Opera House, the Asolo Theater and the Players Theater, and Van Wezel Performing Arts are there for your entertainment. If you want to go shopping and your interests vary - and I am using myself as an example - you can find ceremonial masks from Africa (head to the Nontando Store ), the latest designers' fashion boutiques (in St Armands Circle, you are already there!), and antiquing and bargain hunting (at The Women's Exchange store). You can find it all! And to top it off, there are museums: The Ringling Museum of Arts, the Science Museum, the Museum of Asian Art and the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. No wonder this place draws visitors from near and far!
