Location

Sarasota, Florida, United States

This is such a great little location. If you wish to go to the Lido public pool, it is just a short walk to the end of our street. It is for public use, so feel free to check it out!! It would take you about three minutes to get there. It’s right before the entrance to the beach. There is also a cute little lunch spot in the pavilion.

Over the Ringling Bridge to mainland Sarasota you can take advantage of many wonderful experiences and a rich cultural community. From the Ringling Museum, to the ballet, opera or concerts at the Van Wezel, to gorgeous downtown Sarasota with its picturesque bay-front. With street names like Lemon, Orange, Pineapple, and Coconut it is a very tropical setting. Downtown Sarasota also boasts a beautiful movie theater, library, plenty of shopping, and wonderful restaurants.

Lori has been a long-time visitor to Florida for getaways from the Washington DC cold. She’s spent most of her time in the Sarasota area and just fell in love with Lido Beach and it’s very eclectic shopping and fantastic restaurants in St. Armand’s Circle. Enjoying the type of vacation where you don’t need to always find parking, Lori found this home nestled amongst rich, private vegetation, with the ability to walk to both the beach and St. Armand’s Circle. I also love traveling and getting to know the people from all over the world. Vicki who is your Chief Hospitality Manager, has lived in both Lido Beach and Longboat Key. She is an incredible property manager and a powerhouse of information for local cuisine and things to do in the area. Her number one priority is YOU! You will be pleased with her care and concern for your comfort. Clearly we both love this part of Florida! We especially love hosting families and friends who enjoy such a hip, urban neighborhood like Lido. We enjoy the local restaurants and we love that we can walk just about anywhere we need to go. We absolutely love the guesthouse. It's often referred to as a "private little Garden of Eden" by our guests and we agree. We love hosting people in our guesthouse, and look forward to meeting travelers and helping them feel as comfortable and at home as possible while in Florida.
