About Nancy

I love the water! Growing up in Minnesota, our family spent a lot of time at the lakes - swimming, diving and water skiing. I successfully indoctrinated my kids and grandkids to also love the water, so this condo is a great place for us all to gather. I enjoy early morning laps in the pool (when I frequently have it to myself), and I love walking along the beach - especially in the evening and viewing the spectacular sunsets over the Gulf.

Nancy purchased this condo in 2012

Why Nancy chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

The condo is right on beautiful Lido Beach! Fine white sand for walking barefoot and warm gulf waters for swimming. Love it! And the condo: spacious with beautiful views in three directions. Location is ideal: kayaking and hiking across the street, St Armands Circle an easy walk away and only 3 miles to Downtown Sarasota. So many choices of activities and entertainment!

What makes this condo unique

The floor plan of the condo is ideal - with two bedroom suites well separated from one another. With windows on three sides, there is wonderful airflow in addition to great views.

The kitchen is well-equipped and very efficiently laid out.

Paradise on Lido Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, up-dated and very comfortable condo in an older, but well-kept high-rise. Rented from owner and she was very attentive to our needs. The area is great for relaxing, fine dining, shopping, sight-seeing and a wide variety of cultural and recreational pursuits. Would not hesitate to return!

Best Condo I've Ever Stayed In

  • 5 of 5

This condominium is perfectly located, with the feeling of being far away from the city, even though Sarasota is minutes away. The rooms were spotless and appeared to have recent upgrades, especially the kitchen. The wrap-around lanai provided a great view of the mangroves, which we kayaked through on a few occasions - I recommend this, as the launch site is only a couple blocks from the condo. One of the best aspects of this place, however, is that it's right on the beach, with private access from the back door. We watched the sun set over the Gulf almost every day.

Some other things we appreciated: biking-friendly roads, extensive paths all along the Key, a great variety of fine dining, many within walking distance from the condo, the Mote Aquarium, Tree-Umph Adventure Course (outside of Sarasota, but wonderfully scary), the local farmer's market, the Ringling Museum, the Botanical Gardens, and conveniently located grocery stores.

This review would be incomplete if we didn't mention Nancy, the owner. She was delightful. Kindness Personified. We have never felt as positive about a lodging experience as we had with her.

We recommend this condominium to everyone.

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo in a wonderful location! It’s spacious 2 bedrooms and updated bathrooms. The queen sized beds are really terrific. The living room/dining area is large with comfortable furniture for hanging out and watching Netflix. Besides access to a private beach and other amenities, a truly wonderful feature is that the lanai opens up to two sides of the condo, allowing a wonderful breeze in. Between the open lanai and the ceiling fans, we never even had to turn on the AC. The kitchen is well equipped. We love this place!
