About Jenny Acheson

I am a travel photographer from the UK and Dale is a bespoke furniture maker. After meeting 4 years ago we recently tied the knot a week after buying this lovely house! We have a business together in town and love our lives here in Sarasota. We are a sociable and friendly couple who love to travel and meet people from all over the world. Mostly staying on site, Dale and I will be on hand to welcome you and look after your needs during your stay. We would be honored to share our space with you.

Jenny Acheson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jenny Acheson chose Lido Key

Dale has grown up coming to Lido Beach since he was 12, surfing, fishing, walking, watching sunsets and hanging with his friends. When the opportunity arose to buy this property and be able to live at the beach whilst running a business, it was like a gift! It is such a calm and special area, our street in particular retains that feel of 'time stood still' which we love. It is quieter than Siesta Key but yet is no secret. It is easy to get into town and what a gorgeous journey every day traveling over the Ringling Bridge.

What makes this apartment unique

Along with many other properties in our street, we were attracted by the style of the house - a simple bungalow typical of the 50s/60s. We love mid-century modern design and its clean lines seemed perfect to us - even the soft yellow of the exterior and palm tree out front excited me as a Brit ( palm trees are SO exotic! ). This adventure offered us a way to have a little 'boutique' guest house and a way to invite friendly strangers to our spot.

Excellent place to stay close to the beautiful beach and St. Armands Circle

  • 5 of 5

Loved this unit, the description is very accurate - it was spotless, great space, cool temp, all amenities in the house (including kitchen) for a comfortable beach experience. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants at St. Armand's Circle, and half a block to the gorgeous Lido beach. Wi-fi, list of local places to visit, fun stuff for the beach, outdoor patio area and very reasonable price - can't wait to come back! Jenny was awesome to deal with too!

Car: not necessary

Our quiet street is one of the nicest on Lido Key, all low rises, with a quaint 'time stood still' feel. Lido Pavilion and pool are 1/2 block away and the beach just beyond it. Make your coffee in the morning and wander barefoot to drink it at the water's edge. At the other end of Grant Drive are parks and mangroves and we are minutes away from nature trails, kayak rentals and access to the 4 bodies of water that make up the beautiful 100 acre South Lido Beach Park.

Nearby is the elegant St Armand's Circle where you can shop and dine at wonderful restaurants like Shore and Venezia ( we will give you a long list of places all over Sarasota when you arrive! ). In fact with the bus at the end of our street that goes downtown you don't even need to rent a car during your stay! Downtown Sarasota also offers plenty. We love the Sarasota Opera, the Ringling Museum, the Historic Asolo Theatre, the shops on Main Street, the Marina and the hundreds of different places to eat and drink.
