**** UPDATE 3/1/14 **** Island Dreams will have a 2 bedroom unit available starting April 1, 2014. I am moving off site and the Owner's Unit is now available for Guests! Pictures coming soon - it is a renovated, 2 bed/1bath with fabulous historic charm: high ceilings, stone fireplace, full kitchen. Master has a queen bed - with twin beds in the second bedroom and a pullout sofa in the living area, it sleeps up to 6 people!
Come enjoy these sparkling, newly renovated and furnished, 1-bedroom units just a half-block to the beautiful beaches of Lido Key! Island Dreams Vacation Rentals is a small complex with 3 separate, 1-bedroom rental units. All have new kitchens with granite counters, updated baths, 32' flat-screen TV's in the living areas, brand new furnishings and a fun, beach-themed vibe perfect for your next vacation. Laundry on site, with free wifi and satellite TV.
Location, location, location! Island Dreams is perfectly centered on this intimate island, and you can have it all for a fraction of the price of staying at a pricey resort. The beach pavilion, public pool, and Lido Beach Resort (with its popular tiki bar and restaurant) are all located just a half-block down our quiet residential street. Paddleboarding, kayak rentals, and the trails and picnic areas at South Lido park are also just a quick walk south. Famous St. Armand's circle to the north - with its eclectic shops and delicious restaurants - is a 10-15 minute stroll through the island's charming paths. And!, Lido is the closest Key to downtown Sarasota - with all of its cultural attractions and amenities - just a quick drive over the beautiful Ringling bridge.
Be among the first to enjoy these truly unique rentals, with an on-site owner dedicated to helping you enjoy an incredible and relaxing vacation!

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
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.
