I purchased this 4-unit property in 2011, after a roundabout path through several cities and professions. I live on site in one of the units, and I completely renovated the other 3 units to offer as vacation rentals in this little slice of paradise. It was my dream to live by the beach, hence the name Island Dreams, and I look forward to sharing it all with you! Julie

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011

I visited Sarasota for the first time in 2010, and immediately knew I wanted to make it my home. This charming small city has all of the benefits of a big city - culture, restaurants, events - along with stunning beaches, friendly people and an amazing quality of life. And Lido Key encompases all of that. It has a quiet and laid-back yet sophisticated beach atmosphere, and its proximity to downtown Sarasota can't be beat.

Great Get-Away

My two teenage daughters and myself just spent a wonderful warm and sunny week at Sandy Toes and had a great time! Plenty of room for the three of us. Very clean. The bed was comfortable, as was the pull out couch. Nice kitchen with everything needed to prepare and serve meals. Location can't be beat, 3 1/2 minute walk and your toes are in the sand and you're looking at the beautiful blue waves. Had lunch at Lido Beach and it was good, well priced food (great cheeseburgers and reubens). Lido beach is beautiful, walked beach for shells every morning. Lido is very walkable area and sunsets are amazing. Visit Siesta Key beach if you have time, huge beautifully soft white sand, like flour soft.
Bottom line, great property, great location, Julie is very responsive and easy to get ahold of. Loved Lido, will be back!

What a great find in Sarasota! We spent four nights in Gulf Breeze, and it really wasn't enough. The unit was beautiful, clean, and had everything we could possibly have needed. The location was perfect, beach across the street, St. Armonds within walking (or stumbling,) distance. This was our annual girls getaway, ten days on the road, from Maryland to Sanibel Island. Thanks Julie. We hope to return

Excellent Location

Stayed in room "Sandy Toes" in Island Dreams last week. Excellent location across from Lido Beach Resort. A few steps to the beach and you can take a morning swim in the bath water they call the Gulf. Its heaven. After the beach and a shower its a nice walk to St. Armands Circle for lunch, dinner, cocktails, ice cream or shopping. The unit was very clean and had everything I needed. They even let you use the washer/dryer so a long stay is like being in your 2nd home. The owner, Julie, is awesome. And because she only has a few (3 or 4?) units she pays attention to detail. Yeah, I'd highly recommend it. I've started using this website for vacations more often because big hotels don't give you the same experience as private villas, condos or homes.

The put-it for kayak tours/rentals is also down the street. Take a tour thru mangrove tunnels...you won't regret it.

A little piece of paradise, not to be missed!

4 nights at Island Dreams - Cozy Cottage is not enough by far!
Lido Key is the most fantastic location for relaxing and unwinding, with the property located a stones throw from the glorious white sands and warm waters of the Gulf. Island Dreams' Cozy Cottage, with its private access, is well appointed, clean and perfectly quiet, a great start for our family vacation (2 adults and a teenage girl).
St Armands Circle, the hub of Lido Key is a short walk away, offering a good selection of restaurants, vacation shopping and not to be missed, Kilwin's ice cream parlor.
Julie, the onsite property owner, was very welcoming and helpful and not at all intrusive. We can't thank you enough Julie for your help with our lost luggage and for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. I wish you every success with your venture; keep living your dream :)

This place is wonderful and is as described. The unit was newly remodeled and very clean. We stayed in Gulf Breeze and it was exactly like the pictures. It was very quiet and so close to the beach; just what we were looking for.
