Everything you need...

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a short four day break on Lido Key at the "Sea Ranch". The villa is well equipped, super clean, and perfectly situated - just a short stroll from the wonderful beach. We made good use of the bicycles, and the beach equipment, and enjoyed sitting out on the patio in the evenings. Jerry and Heidi live in a house adjacent to the property and were great hosts. We highly recommend, and look forward to returning!

Relaxing trip to a very walkable location!

  • 4 of 5

Lido Key is lovely and May is a great time to visit. It's easy to get into restaurants and the beaches are less crowded. This little house is well appointed. You can easily cook meals and eat in...but we like walking to St Armand's circle for dinner. All of the living spaces are roomy. I like to unpack and there was plenty of room for that. I wouldn't want more than two adults here just because there is just one small bathroom. Everything is clean and feels new.

The moment you enter the patio at Sea Ranch you feel like it's a tropical, beachside paradi

  • 5 of 5

Jerry & Heidi did everything to make you feel comfortable. The cottage is nicely decorated and has everything you need. We stayed for six weeks & can't wait until next year to come back. The cottage has an updated kitchen with a nice open floor plan. The 2nd bedroom was great for guests & the rain shower in the bathroom is refreshing after a hard day at the beach! The patio is an extension of the house & is closed off from the street so you can enjoy meals & drinks outside amidst the palm trees. The washer/dryer were a plus since we stayed 6 weeks. Tons of beach gear, umbrellas, chairs & our favorite, the red wagon to take everything to the beach. Sea Ranch is the perfect home away from home!

Clean & Cozy, Lovely courtyard

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but good things to say about our stay.

The cottage had to be one of the cleanest accommodations we've had the pleasure of staying at. It had everything anyone would need of all ages to enjoy a beach vacation! The interior design is impeccable and cute as can be; making for relaxation at it's finest!

We cannot express the beauty and serenity of the enclosed front yard area. Again, the decorating is so cute, we noticed something new every time we stepped outside the door.

The owners match the cottage--nicest, cutest couple ever!

Can't say enough good things about our stay--highly, highly recommend this property!

Thank you Jerry & Heidi!

I would Give a Ten Star if I could

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a gem in a hidden gem of an area of Florida--Lido key. The property is very up to date with everything that makes the stay very comfortable. Many nice touches including, WiFi, cable tv, shaded private outdoor area, a grill and beach equipment which is easily transported to the beach which is all of 200 yards away. The owners Jerry and Heidi are very accommodating and extremely nice. It is an easy walk to St. Armand's Circle with all its boutiques and restaurants. It is a ten minute drive to downtown Sarasota with all of its amenities. You don't need to look any further and consider yourself extremely lucky if you can book a month or two!

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying here and we loved it! We arrived late Friday night and the doors were unlocked and lights turned on for us. We were greeted Saturday morning by Jerry the owner who had some great tips for us. The house is in the perfect location, one street from the beach. There are several other cute houses on this street as well. We loved the house! It had everything we needed, from cooking spices, to laundry and dish detergent, to soap, shampoo and hair spray! Also, there were plenty of cooking pots and pans and utensils, and dishes to eat and drink from. The sheets and beds were so soft and comfortable! We loved the outdoor patio area, we used it just about every night. I suggest bringing bug spray though, because the mosquitoes were swarming that area. The little red wagon was missing, but Jerry told us he would have one delivered to us the next day and he did! The wagon is so nice to have to take to the beach. It was big enough to carry our Yeti 35 and all of our beach essentials. The beach chairs provided were pretty awesome too, you can carry them on your back. You can't beat the price and location of this place! And we even damaged the living room table and Jerry didn't make us pay to repair it. Very easy to work with and very accommodating! Thanks for a great stay!! We will be back!
