+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Please read our reviews. We are owner operators and live nearby. It’s our goal to make your time at Living the Dream on Lido memorable. We meet all of our guests on arrival to make sure everything is perfect – we appreciate your business.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If you’re looking for a quiet beach community and an island lifestyle than you’re at the right place. The unit is decorated in island style with a king size comfortable bed, flat screen TVs in living and bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. What’s really nice is at Lido you can park your car and walk (or bike) as everything you need is nearby. It’s not uncommon for our guests to taxi in for the week.

Like the outdoors? Lido has parks on the north and south end and the kayak park is two blocks away. The beach is a block away and we provide beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler.

Hungry? It’s a 5 minute walk to famous St. Armand’s Circle with 15+ restaurants and upscale boutique shopping. Our favorite spots are at Tommy Bahamas restaurant watching the crowds go by while sipping a martini or on the patio at the Columbia with a pitcher of cava sangria made table side.

Night on the town? Enjoy beautiful downtown Sarasota’s fine dining, theater, opera, ballet, art galleries, antique shops, and museums or just pass the time while strolling the shops of downtown Sarasota. Longboat key and Siesta Key are minutes away.

Linens, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler provided – just bring your toothbrush! If you forgot it – ask! We probably have it.

You name it and its nearby - golf, beach, bike, boat, sailing, some of the best fishing, fishing charters, aquariums, museums, shopping, wind surfing, kite boarding, swimming, great walking areas, theaters, opera, and on and on.

Here is a sampling of what's nearby!

•Ringling Museum (John Ringling was an art collector)

•Segway Rentals (fun way to tour the town)

•Selby Botanical Gardens (amazing display of orchids)

•Mote Marine Aquarium (fish lovers place and great for kids)

•Van Wezel Performing Arts Center

•Marina Jacks (downtown on the water restaurant with a nice outdoor bar)

•Ca’ d’Zan Mansion (John & Mable Ringling house)

•Myakka State Park (gators and airboats)

•Busch Gardens (hour north)

•Sarasota Opera (located in the theatre district)

•Kennedy Space Center (nice day trip)

Two hours to Orlando attractions. Minutes to Sarasota airport and 1 hour to Tampa and St. Petersburg airports, parks, museums, sporting events.

Cozy; convenient location

  • 5 of 5

I loved this unit. Very cute. The location is wonderful - about a 12 minute walk to St. Armands Circle. If you are a walker (or runner), it's close to the beach and a park. I would definitely stay there again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay, in warmly and tastefully decorated condo. Jan and Chris have made sure that the unit has everything you may need during your stay. Only minutes from the beach in one direction and minutes to dining, shopping or window browsing in the other. Quiet, safe neighbourhood.

Hope to return soon!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again Jan and Chris - we thoroughly enjoyed our 3rd stay in 12 months!

We fly in/out of Tampa since there are no direct flights from our home city into Sarasota. We rent a car for the week at the airport and enjoy the easy and scenic drive south on the Sunshine Skyway. We stop and shop for groceries on the way to Lido Key so that once we arrive and unpack, the comfortable condo feels like our second home.

Other reviewers have consistently shared our experiences.....friendly and helpful owners who will greet you at arrival and answer any questions you have; a well-appointed and very clean unit that has everything you need; and easy walking access to the beautiful beach and shopping/dining on the circle. Everything Sarasota has to offer is just a short drive over the causeway.

People reading this review and considering either of the (2) Living the Dream on Lido units should book with confidence.....5 stars for the destination, property and owners!

It is true you will be Living the Dream on Lido

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home today after a fabulous stay at 103 Chateau Village.

Jan and Chris are passionate about making sure there guests are well taken care of. They personally meet you and show you around their unit and are close by if you need anything attended to.

The condo is immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The kitchen has the amenities if you wish to dine in. There is a nice patio to have your morning coffee or evening cocktail.

We enjoy the beach and it was great to have chairs, umbrellas and cooler provided.

You are only a short walk to the beach and Armand's Circle. We would spend the day at Lido Beach and then Armand's Circle in the evening for many different dinner choices. Lido beach is a place to watch a fantastic sunset. You are only a short drive to downtown Sarasota with many different culinary choices. The stay was truly relaxing and we definitely will be back!
