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 bar 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)

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

The perfect vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

Our one bedroom condo was beautifully decorated, had everything a person could want to cook any meal yet 10 minutes away from a variety of nice restaurants. And, the beach was even closer. Janice and Chris live just 1/2 a block away so would have been handy for any needs if we had had any! They are a delightful couple and this really did feel like a homecaway from home. We'll be back!

Cant say enough about this cute condo by the beach! Jan checked us in and was very hospitable. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to Hurricane Irma. We will be back though!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lido Key. The beaches were beautiful, the condo was clean and nicely decorated, and everything we needed was in the unit. We enjoyed using the "beach gear" every day when we went to the ocean - it really made our experience so much better to have access to nice beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers. The king size bed was unbelievably comfortable and the kitchen provided all we needed. We enjoyed the short walk/drive to St. Armand's Circle, and went there often during our stay. We're already talking about our next trip! Thanks for a great getaway!

Great location, clean, nicely decorated...all you can ask for in a vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very convenient to the lido beach and St. Armand's circle. It is tastefully decorated and clean. Easy booking with quick follow up by the owner/property manager. Janice was great to work with and followed up to make sure we had everything we needed. I would stay here again in the future.

A super holiday in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was well appointed with all you require for two weeks holiday. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Beach chairs & umbrella provided, bikes also, if required. 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach and 10 minute stroll to Armand Circle, were you will find many restaurants and shops. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, Janice & Chris. Janice was always on hand if we needed any local information, very friendly & couldn't do enough for us. This was one of the best places we have been to in Florida & we will definitely return in the future. Many many thanks. Barbara & Geoff Bemmer
