Lovely Ringling Cottage very close (walk) to beach and St Armand's circle

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at one of the few authentic Ringling Cottages on Lido Key. The location was great for walks on the beach (<150yds) and walks to the lively St Armands Circle where you can find shops and restaurants. The cottage is ideally located if you'd like to bike the key. We enjoyed a full day's outing to the Circus Museum and Ringling House (both must-see) and many of the restaurants scattered along the length of Lido/Longboat Keys. We felt very welcomed by the owner and would recommend this property / return to this property. If you are looking for a place to enjoy the weather, beach, and ambiance of the Sunshine State (we did leave cold weather to enjoy), then you'll enjoy this property.

Comfortable apartment for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a very nice stay with our young son. Apartment was comfortable and quiet, perfect for our low-key vacation needs. Spent our days at Lido beach, just minutes away walking, and went out to eat in downtown Sarasota at night, easily accessible by car. Hope to visit again!

Just one-half block stroll to the beautiful white sands of Lido Beach! A few blocks from nature preserve and a short walk to St. Armands Circle. 8 minutes to downtown Sarasota.
