QUIET STREET, PRIVATE BACK YARD, SCREENED PORCH, WALK TO BEACH AND 150 SHOPS

St. Armands Key Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

This cottage is loaded with charm and has about 1000 sf of airconditioned/heated living area and a huge screened porch w comfy furniture and dining table. All of our guests have loved this place.

At the entrance is a large room which houses not only the laundry facilities, but a full shower bath and a twin bed. Great little hideaway for the guest who wants privacy.

There is a full kitchen, dining room, living room with television, a bedroom with a King size bed, a bedroom with a Queen size bed , bathroom between the bedrooms.

The best room of the house is OUTside the house. The large screened porch is perfect for reading, relaxing, snoozing, dining and get togethers. The yard is fenced and private. There is a nice shade tree in the middle of the yard and an outdoor grill, table and chairs for outdoor dining and an outdoor shower.

There is a rolling cooler, chairs and umbrella for the beach and the public pool is just 2 blocks away.

Fabulous St. Armands Circle is just a 10 minute walk from the cottage. See their website for names and locations of 150 shops.

Anne, the owner, is now 103 years young. Judi, the daughter, takes care of the property and does the bookings. Mother bought the cottage as an investment for us.

Judi Summers purchased this cottage in 2004

We chose this location not only because it is near the beach, but because it is near kayaking, a park, a pool and tons of shopping, the best in Sarasota.

Everyone enjoys sitting on the big back porch or in the yard, cooking on the grill, and showering outside after beaching.

COZY COTTAGE NEAR THE SEA, WELL-EQUIPPED FOR COOKING, BBQ AND PETS

  • 5 of 5
Seeing these photos makes me homesick for "our" little cottage by the sea. It's located in a quiet area at the South End of Lido Key, just blocks from Lido Beach (sunsets!), Lido swimming pool (laps!), and the Ted Sperling Park (kayaking!).

We also enjoyed strolling, dining and shopping at St. Armand's Circle -- within walking distance, although we simply drove and parked. Restaurants there range from upscale to pub food, and you can get an ice cream cone as late as 11 p.m. (our experience, anyway). We also shopped for beach wear since we thought it would be too cold to swim and didn't bring any.

Because the kitchen was so well-equipped, we cooked dinner many nights and were able to enjoy breakfast at home daily. This not only saved $$$ but helped us maintain our health-conscious diets so we could splurge now and then. That doesn't mean we didn't savor the flavors of the area's fine restaurants, too, like Euphemia Hay on Longboat Key, and Venezia and The Columbia (stone crab!) at St. Armand's Circle.

When we travel, we like to keep our clothes fresh. There was a wonderful utility room/small bedroom with washer/dryer for our convenience. This is a pet-friendly property, and our two small dogs stayed in that utility room. But we made sure to protect the bed completely with a sheet thrown over it in case the dogs jumped on it while we were gone. I recommend that to any pet owners, since we all want pet-friendly properties. We don't want our dogs soiling anybody's future bedspread!

Our pups also enjoyed the shady back yard, although it sure could use some grass. It's mostly sandy dirt, which was a minus for us. We also enjoyed sitting on the screened-in porch for cocktails except when it rained, another small minus. There is a large hot tub on the porch which we were able to enjoy one night of our stay.

The king-sized bed in the master is VERY comfortable, and there are many towels, sheets, etc., available. As I said above, the kitchen is so well-equipped, you could cook a turkey dinner if you wanted to. The decor is "island adorable," without being tacky.

All in all, we had an absolutely wonderful stay and appreciate the property management firm's oversight and concern. If there's a problem, they'll fix it. That kind of prompt attention is what travelers need.
