Please read our reviews. We are owner operators and live nearby. It’s our goal to make your time at Living the Dream on Lido memorable. We meet all of our guests on arrival to make sure everything is perfect – we appreciate your business.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If you’re looking for a quiet beach community and an island lifestyle than you’re at the right place. The unit is fully updated and decorated in island style with a very comfortable king size bed, flat screen TVs in living room and bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. What’s really nice is at Lido you can park your car and walk (or bike, & bus) as everything you need is nearby. It’s not uncommon for our guests to taxi in for the week.

Like the outdoors? Lido has parks on the north and south end and the kayak park is two blocks away. The beach is a block away and we provide beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. There's bathrooms and snack at the beach also.

Hungry? It’s a 5 minute walk to famous St. Armand’s Circle with 15+ restaurants and upscale boutique shopping. Our favorite spots are at Tommy Bahamas restaurant watching the crowds go by while sipping a martini or on the patio at the Columbia with a pitcher of cava sangria made table side. 8th floor Happy Hour at Lido Beach resort is also a great place to meet the locals.

Night on the town? Enjoy beautiful downtown Sarasota’s fine dining, theater, opera, ballet, art galleries, antique shops, and museums or just pass the time while strolling the shops of downtown Sarasota. Longboat key and Siesta Key are minutes away.

Linens, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler provided – just bring your toothbrush! If you forgot it – ask! We probably have it.

You name it and its nearby - golf, beach, bike, boat, sailing, some of the best fishing, fishing charters, aquariums, museums, shopping, wind surfing, kite boarding, swimming, great walking areas, theaters, opera, and on and on.

Here is a sampling of what's nearby!

•Ringling Museum (John Ringling was an art collector)

•Segway Rentals (fun way to tour the town)

•Selby Botanical Gardens (amazing display of orchids)

•Mote Marine Aquarium (fish lovers place and great for kids)

•Van Wezel Performing Arts Center

•Marina Jacks (downtown on the water restaurant with a nice outdoor bar)

•Ca’ d’Zan Mansion (John & Mable Ringling house)

•Myakka State Park (gators and airboats)

•Busch Gardens (hour north)

•Sarasota Opera (located in the theatre district)

•Kennedy Space Center (nice day trip)

Two hours to Orlando attractions. Minutes to Sarasota airport and 1 hour to Tampa and St. Petersburg airports, parks, museums, sporting events.

About Jan

Local couple living the dream on Lido. We've been coming here (Lido) for years and decided to make it our home. Chris was born in Florida and Jan's a NJ transplant. We hope you enjoy the island!

Jan purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jan chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Relaxing beach community. Close to everything and you never need to leave the island. Great neighborhood and everyone's friendly.

What makes this condo unique

Small beach community with easy access to the great beach, restaurants, arts, and sites in Sarasota. It's stuck in time a little bit but that's what makes it unique.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay, in warmly and tastefully decorated condo. Jan and Chris have made sure that the unit has everything you may need during your stay. Only minutes from the beach in one direction and minutes to dining, shopping or window browsing in the other. Quiet, safe neighbourhood.

Hope to return soon!

Best Location to Stay on Lido Key!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect in every way. Clean and comfortable and quiet. A short drive to everything in the Sarasota region and can walk to the beach and St. Armand's Circle. Will definitely stay here again if we're in the area! Great communication with Jan and she is very willing to accommodate requests/needs if she can. Everything needed for your stay is provided. Book it now and enjoy!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely first floor unit on a recent 5 day trip to Sarasota/Lido Beach for a soccer tournament in Bradenton. The unit was immaculate and well-appointed. They had everything that I needed. I easily walked to the beach - just a couple of minutes away and to St. Armands Circle for shopping/eating. Janice met me upon my arrival and showed me all the amenities of the unit. A couple of days later she texted me to ensure everything was perfect. I made a suggestion for a minor repair that I thought they would likely attend to after I left and Chris was there within 10 minutes and had it fixed!!

The kitchen had all the tools you would typically use in a kitchen plus spices and a few other grocery type items. I travel a lot and where possible I prefer a kitchen so that I can prepare my own meals when I wish. Everything was new and clean and perfect for my needs. I highly recommend this unit for a trip to Lido Beach! If I'm back again next year, I hope to get the same unit! And I loved the souvenir t-shirt! Thanks, Janice & Chris! Merry Christmas!!

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 5 nights and we loved the condo, the area, the beach - everything. Enjoyed being able to walk to the beach (less than 5 mins) & then walk to The Circle (only 10 mins) for shopping, dining & people watching. Loved watching Santa arrive and turning on the Xmas lights on our first evening. It really is a great place to stay and Janice was the perfect host. We hope to return sometime in the future and would highly recommend

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Janice was an outstanding host! So helpful with restaurant choices and things to do. The location is perfect! Short walk to the beach to enjoy an amazing and unforgettable sunset; which she provides the most amazing wine glasses to do so with. The condo was very clean and nicely updated; clean linens and very cozy bed. The kayak park was a short walk away and led us through amazing mangroves and beautiful views of the south end of lido. Looking forward to coming back for another amazing stay! Thank you so much. Jess and Matt

This condo is a wonderful place to stay! Just one block from Lido Beach, short walk to St. Armand's. The place was clean, comfy and the owners Jan and Chris are amazing! They put so much thought into making our stay great. Supplied beach chairs, umbrellas and towels...so helpful since we flew down! They made sure we had everything we needed and more! Would highly recommend staying here! I will definitely be looking to book my next trip back!
