Directions for checking in were very good. Room was ABSOLUTELY clean (& much appreciated). The room size was exactly all we needed, as we were gone much of the time. Only negative feedback: I think it's time for a new bed (in that unit) -- kind of "saggy" & was uncomfortable.
Hosts were very responsive for a quick issue, and that was MUCH appreciated.
Thanks for a relaxing stay on Lido Key.
The studio at Lido beach was just great! It was so close to the ocean and the pool was great when we were at the studio! It was quaint and just like the picture given. It was very quiet at night and the patio was great for relaxing after a day exploring the area of Armand's circle and and the nearby Anna Maria Island. Everything we needed was supplied in the kitchenette and checking in and out was simple!
Look forward to coming back again! There were beach chairs and pool supplies for us to use too!
I re-read the reviews for this apartment after staying here, because I wondered why we had chosen this place. My wife and I usually decide to stay at airbnb places that are occupied by the owner, where the owner is present and welcoming.
The experience of arriving at this apartment was more like dealing with a management company. The arrival details required us to go to one location to find out where the actual unit was located. Though the actual unit was only seven blocks away, and was the unit pictured in the description, this hiccup was difficult when coming into town with two young children who were hungry and eager to get to the beach to see the sun set.
The apartment was clean enough, though we found Froot Loops in the fold out couch. The little apartment complex was partly charming and partly worn-down.
The most significant inconsistency between the listing and the actual place was the "steps to the beach" in the title. 800 steps or more, in actuality. The place was one half block off the main drag along the beach, but since there are no public access points through the string of hi-rise hotels and apartment buildings, you have to turn left and walk down three long blocks to get to the public path to beach. It was about a ten minute walk.
We felt as though it was a poor value, as the cost of a one night stay (including airbnb fees) was almost $240 dollars. We booked it because hotels and apartments in that area were very expensive (especially during spring break), and most airbnb options required a 2 night stay (we needed only 1 night). Had we realized that St. Petersburg was only 45 minutes away, we would have stayed an extra night there, and drove down to Sarasota for the day.
We never met Dan, though the paperwork describing the location of the place and the directions to the beach were accurate and complete. So we didn't lack anything, but our needs were very small.
Nice little place a few blocks from the beach. Clean and not far from the circle.
Dan was very professional and responsive. The studio we stayed at clean and comfortable. Great location on a quiet street, very close to the public beach. If you're looking for a simple spot to stay while you enjoy Lido, I'd recommend it.
Our room was not at the address listed. It was some blocks away.
It was extremely small and cramped...much smaller than any hotel room. It was clean but smelled of cleanser.
It was barely big enough for two...not bad for one.
The place was run down. Probably from the 50s without upgrades.
Bad windows and doors.
Furniture and bed were ok.
We had to go and fetch towels and toilet paper and soap from the home location.
No typical niceties like tissues or coffee.
The killer surprise was the construction right outside our window. That's always relaxing.
Bottom line...it was ok but a terrible value. The Holiday Inn, a few blocks away, Is competitively priced and has a view and amenities like room cleaning.
We felt cheated. If there were no available alternatives, and we wanted to be right there and were willing to overpay, it would be ok.
We stayed there only because we expected it to be nicer than a typical hotel room. It wasn't.
It would be a good value at about half the price.
This is an amazing value. The location is beautiful but the area is changing. Wolfy's next door is a great place for food and drinks. The staff was so very very nice. If I am ever here again this will be my first choice.
