Armand's circle, which hosts some of the worlds most exclusive restaurants and shops. Across the bay is Sarasota, Florida's cultural center and home to a never-ending variety of indoor and outdoor activities, from fine museums and theaters to world-class golf courses and tennis facilities.

The property is conveniently located literally a couple blocks from Lido beach. A very easy walk to restaurants, bars and shopping. The area was a little upidity for my taste and the locals were not very friendly so we spent most of our time at SIESTA KEY beach which was AMAZING!

The room is title "Great Getaway for couples" because although there were 3 of us I would definately return with my fiancee' The Studio has Everything you need aside from privacy with the pull out couch an arms-length away from the bed. However I understood that's what we signed up for.

The room was clean and very charming and there were even beach items available for use!

The price can't be beat! Great for an extended weekend vacay!

Very clean, stocked kitchen and nice beachy decor

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Lido Beach. The unit was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes and has a full size fridge. The owner was very welcoming with clear and thorough directions for arriving. There were lots of extra offered including bike rentals. The only reason I marked the unit down slightly was that it was a bit far from the shops (almost a mile) and beach. I guess we should have rented the bikes!

Perfect weekend getaway! Clean, cozy and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Pelican Gardens with Lido Islander was perfect! Everything was just as described. The bungalo was larger than a hotel room and very clean! The beach was a short walk away. I was pleasantly surprised to see a beach umbrella and chairs available for use. We will definitely visit again!

Jenison, MI

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Within 4 blocks from beach and about 10 blocks from St Armand's Circle. Small but all the space needed if you plan to spend all your time outdoors. Not many kitchen utensils so don't plan to do a lot of cooking.
