About this home

Please read our reviews. We are owner operators and It’s our goal to make your time at Lido memorable.

If you’re looking for a quiet beach community and an island lifestyle then 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)

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

    Ideal location

    Cozy condo very close to a quiet part of South Lido beach and also close to St Armands shops and restaurants (we are at 2 great ones). The condo is very well stocked and spotlessly clean. Beach chairs, umbrella on a pull cart. We spent 3 hours on the beach on all 5 days of our stay. Jan made sure we checked in easily and she was always easily available should we have questions. We plan on returning again later in the year. This place is a special Sarasota gem.
