Island Dreams is a 4-unit beach complex just steps to beautiful Lido Beach. This listing is for my one-bedroom "Cozy Cottage" unit. Everything has been fully renovated in this unit, from the new tile floors to the brand new kitchenette and bath. You will absolutely love the large, private rear deck on beautiful Florida evenings. This is a ground-level unit, but does have four steps to the spacious bedroom and bath. The king bed plus a queen sleeper sofa allow up to 4 guests.

The space
All of the charm of the original 1930’s structure – with up-to-date amenities - Cozy Cottage features a raised ceiling in the living area and pine board walls in the bedroom. Soothing blues and crisp whites enhance the original detailing. The cottage sleeps up to 4 with a king bed plus a queen sleeper sofa in the living area (best suited to children).

All units at Island Dreams have recently renovated kitchens, updated baths, flat-screen TV's, beautiful beach-themed furnishings and fully stocked kitchens. There is laundry on site, assigned parking, free wifi and satellite TV, and all beach supplies and towels. Simply everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation!

Cozy Cottage also allows pets! 2 pet maximum.

Other things to note
Location, location, location! (Airbnb maps don't seem to be accurate - Island Dreams is on Cleveland Drive just 4 houses/ 1/2 block down from the beach access by Lido Beach Resort, an easy 2-3 minute walk to the beach). We are perfectly centered on this intimate island, and you can have it all for a fraction of the price of staying at a pricey resort. The beach, pavilion and concession stand, public pool, and Lido Beach Resort (with its popular tiki bar and restaurant) are all located just a half-block down our quiet residential street. Paddleboarding, kayak rentals, and the trails and picnic areas at South Lido park are also just a quick walk south. Famous St. Armand's circle - with its eclectic shops and delicious restaurants - is a 10-15 minute stroll to the north through the island's charming paths. And!, Lido is the closest island to downtown Sarasota - with all of its cultural attractions and amenities - just a quick drive over the beautiful Ringling bridge. It doesn't get any better than this!

We have 3 additional rental units, sleeping 2-6 people. Please see our additional listings on this site, all with the same headline.
