The SpaceA stone's throw from beautiful Lido Beach near downtown Sarasota, our cheery yellow house incorporates 3 entirely separate units - a 2 bed ( https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/751886 ), a 1 bed ( this one ) and 1 studio apartment ( https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/756565 ). This listing is for the owners' 1 bedroom apartment. It has high speed internet, 60 in flat screen TV, a fully equipped kitchen with door to back patio and private dining area - we also just installed lovely sliding doors to the patio from the living room. There is a pink tiled bathroom with many original (1960 ) features and a new custom made cabinet by the owner. There are cool terrazzo floors throughout and mid-century style furniture and decor, including a fantastic new blue couch to lounge and watch tv from. Central air and heat ensure you will always be cozy. There is a nice outdoor landscaped garden palm trees, tropical plants, lounge chairs, umbrellas, a shady hammock and different areas to sit and relax. A bbq grill and dining area is available anytime and we offer a washer and dryer free for guests use. We provide bikes ( including a vintage tandem! ), surf boards, flippers and snorkels, coolers, beach chairs, umbrellas and many other things for the beach. Gorgeous sunsets are also free! Our quiet street is one of the nicest on Lido Key, all low rises, with a quaint "time stood still" feel. Lido Pavilion and pool are 1/2 block away and the beach just beyond it. Make your coffee in the morning and wander barefoot to drink it at the water's edge. At the other end of Grant Drive are parks and mangroves and we are minutes away from nature trails, kayak rentals and access to the 4 bodies of water that make up the beautiful 100 acre South Lido Beach Park. It's the perfect place to run, stroll, bike and explore. Nearby is the elegant St Armand's Circle where you can shop and dine at wonderful restaurants like Shore and Venezia ( we will give you a long list of places all over Sarasota when you arrive! ). In fact with the bus at the end of our street that goes downtown you don't even need to rent a car during your stay! Downtown Sarasota, just across the gorgeous Ringling Bridge, also offers plenty. We love the Sarasota Opera, the Ringling Museum, the Historic Asolo Theatre, the shops on Main Street, the Marina and the hundreds of different places to eat and drink. We aim to create a calm and friendly guest house with a "boutique" style, filling the units with lovely furniture and decor and art that we have picked up on our travels. Mostly staying on site, Dale and I will be on hand to welcome you and look after your needs during your stay. We have a furniture and photography business in town - Wood Street Studio - and are a sociable and friendly couple who love to travel and meet people from all over the world.

Guest AccessA private 1 bedroom apartment with kitchen and bathroom, as well as semi-private paved space at the back of the apartment. The rest of the large tropical garden is shared with 2 other apartments. This apartment has an interleading door to the studio apartment next door for families or groups of friends. Kept locked otherwise. Interaction with GuestsBecause my favorite part of this business is meeting travelers to Sarasota, I am very present during our guests' stay and my husband and I often interact in a social way as well as ensuring a smooth check in and that their needs are met. The NeighborhoodAh… Lido… such a paradise. Close to downtown, yet it's own little world by the water. Such a sweet, slow, quiet community of people who live here all year round and then an interesting influx of tourists who visit during high season makes for a perfect balance. Very casual ( barefoot to the beach with morning coffee ), in season the beaches are fairly empty during the weekdays but busy at the weekend with Sunday erupting into a great one man band party at the Pavilion with regulars dancing, eating lobster rolls and drinking beer and wine coolers. Sunsets are always spectacular. Getting Around3 mins walk to the beach, less than 10 to St Armands. The bus is at the end of the street and it goes to town every hour. Very easy, I do it all the time. Other Things to NoteThe rates charge INCLUDE the 05% tourist tax we have to pay on all short term rentals. Airbnb include the 7% state tax in the booking.

Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to offer a healthy breakfast of coffee, tea and a variety of milk and juice options, natural or organic (when available) cereals, fresh fruit and baked goods, including gluten free options, which can be taken indoors or outside. Our guests often join us for breakfast where we are happy to be helpful with directions, restaurant reviews, activities and local destinations. Generally, we are around and strive to be helpful in any way we can. We have lived and loved Sarasota for 22 years. The NeighborhoodOur single family neighborhood is quiet and welcoming, yet convenient to everything, especially the beach and downtown. We sit under beautiful trees and are surrounded by tropical vegetation and floral gardens. There is a dog walking path next to a stream which is next to our house. Within a few blocks, we are fortunate to have Arlington Park, which has an Olympic sized pool, playground, tennis courts, gym with pickleball, basketball, etc. Getting AroundOur location is convenient to all of Sarasota. There is bus service nearby, but most drive. Other Things to NoteWe have a lovely little geriatric dog who will be around. She is deaf and nearly blind but gets around fine and will probably want to meet you. When not with us, she remains in the house in our area, not in the guest suite. We are careful not to reposition the furniture, as she has memorized placement inside and out.

The SpaceA stone's throw from beautiful Lido Beach near downtown Sarasota, our cheery yellow house incorporates 3 entirely separate units - one 2 bedroom, one 1 bedroom and 1 STUDIO apartment. This listing is for the bright and sunny studio. It has high speed internet, 47in flat screen TV with cable ( inc. HBO ), a small brand new custom and fully equipped kitchen with Miele oven, Wolf induction cooktop and undercount fridge. The retro funky blue bathroom has many original (1960 ) features. The bed is a comfy queen size and the bedding new and fresh. There are cool terrazzo floors throughout and mid-century style furniture and decor. We recently installed central air and heat. We have a nice outdoor garden space with tropical plants, a hammock and various lounge chairs and umbrellas where you can relax and read. There is a bbq grill and outdoor dining area for use and a free washer and dryer is round the back. We provide bikes( even a vintage tandem! ) , surf boards, flippers and snorkels, coolers, beach chairs and many other things for the beach. Parking is available in front of the house. Gorgeous sunsets are also free! Our quiet street is one of the nicest on Lido Key, all low rises, with a quaint "time stood still" feel. Lido Pavilion and pool are 1/2 block away and the beach and Gulf of Mexico just beyond it. Make your coffee in the morning and wander barefoot to drink it at the water's edge. At the other end of Grant Drive are parks and mangroves and we are minutes away from nature trails, kayak rentals and access to the 4 bodies of water that make up the beautiful 100 acre South Lido Beach Park. It is the perfect area to run, stroll, bike and explore. Nearby is the elegant St Armand's Circle where you can shop and dine at wonderful restaurants like Shore and Venezia ( we will give you a long list of places all over Sarasota when you arrive! ). In fact with the bus at the end of our street that goes downtown you don't even need to rent a car during your stay! Downtown Sarasota, just across the gorgeous Ringling Bridge also offers plenty. We love the Sarasota Opera, the Ringling Museum, the Historic Asolo Theatre, the shops on Main Street, the Marina and the hundreds of different places to eat and drink. We aim to create a calm and friendly guest house with a "boutique" style, filling the units with lovely furniture and decor and art that we have picked up on our travels. We are very proud to have been featured in many magazine articles. Mostly staying on site, Dale and I will be on hand to welcome you and look after your needs during your stay. We have a business ( furniture building and photography ) and are a sociable and friendly couple who love to travel and meet people from all over the world. We would be honored to share our space with you. PLEASE ENQUIRE ABOUT PRICING OFF SEASON/HIGH SEASON PRICING APPLIES. Guest AccessA whole private studio apartment with kitchen and bathroom.

Interaction with GuestsBecause my favorite part of this business is meeting travelers to Sarasota, I am very present during our guests' stay and my husband and I often interact in a social way as well as ensuring a smooth check in and that their needs are met. The NeighborhoodAh… Lido… such a paradise. Close to downtown, yet it's own little world by the water. Such a sweet, slow, quiet community of people who live here all year round and then an interesting influx of tourists who visit during high season makes for a perfect balance. Very casual ( barefoot to the beach with morning coffee ), beaches are fairly empty during the weekdays but busy at the weekend with Sunday erupting into a great one man band party with regulars dancing, eating lobster rolls and drinking beer and wine coolers. Sunsets are spectacular. Getting Around3 mins walk to the beach. Less than 10 to St Armands. The bus is at the end of the block and goes every house to town. Very easy. I do it all the time. Other Things to NoteAll prices quoted INCLUDE the 5% tourist tax we have to pay on short rentals. The 7% State tax is charged by Airbnb. To use the TV. Press power button, press Menu for TV. (It should be on Video 1 in case previous guests have left the system on Netflix ). For Apple TV, press TV/Input till HDMI1, press OK. To go back to TV, press TV/Input till Video 1, press OK.

The SpaceThe house is conveniently located off University Parkway. We are just 10 minutes from both Sarasota International airport and I-75. The Ringling Museum, Florida New College, and Ringling College of Art are right down the road to the west, and there is a lot of shopping at University and I-75, including Lakewood Ranch. We are right in the middle between downtown Sarasota and downtown Bradenton. There are many, many wonderful restaurants in our immediate area, and of course we can recommend many more downtown or in other parts of the area. Of course, there are our world famous beaches, too! Lido Key Beach is a 20 minute drive away, and Siesta Key Beach is about a 30 minute drive. We are renting two bedrooms on the second floor in a large house. The third bedroom upstairs is used by Victor our tenant. The bathroom will be shared with Victor. Room 1 is large and airy and features a queen bed. Room 2 is cozy and has a double bed and a single bed with another single trundle, so it could easily sleep four children or two adults. There is one very large bathroom that is shared with Victor. This bath with a shower-tub services all the second floor bedrooms. We have plenty of soaps, shampoos, toothbrushes, etc. should you need them. You may use any and all the towels you want. The bathroom is always very clean. There is a half bath downstairs that is also available. Guests have access the living quarters downstairs and to a comfortable family room with television and a wet bar upstairs, and of course they may use the kitchen and laundry facilities downstairs. We are providing coffee or tea for our guests in the kitchen each morning. We have plenty of beach towels, chairs, a beach umbrella, and sunscreen for you. This house is in a beautiful, park-like neighborhood with many large, old oak and pine trees. This is a safe and attractive neighborhood; it's perfect for taking walks. Although we will recommend that you provide your own transportation, there is a bus stop at the neighborhood entrance 3/4 mile from the house. The bus connects to both the Sarasota and Manatee County (Bradenton) systems. Please contact us if you have any questions. Guest AccessGuests have access to almost the entire house; the living room, upstairs family room, the kitchen, the mini-bar, two different televisions, the upstairs balcony and the downstairs deck with dining table. Of course we have free WiFi. Interaction with GuestsIf we can, we very much enjoy spending time with our guests, maybe over a glass of wine or perhaps sharing dinner. However, there is no pressure to do anything but relax. The NeighborhoodI love the trees in our neighborhood; they are the most salient feature. This is a beautiful, heavily wooded, tropical setting. There are many great restaurants nearby such as English Pubs, Tapas, Sushi, Pizza and many other chain and local restaurants. We will be happy to give our tips based on what you are looking to enjoy. Getting AroundWe very much recommend that you provide your own transportation. There is a bus line, the SCAT #15, at the entrance to our neighborhood. We are extremely conveniently located halfway between SRQ airport and the University Town Center Mall I-75 exit. Other Things to NoteThis guest experience offers a shared bath. Please let us know early if you have concerns.

The SpaceAqua waters are echoed in the stained glass and tile art in this 1958 two-bedroom, two-bath home. Set in a family neighborhood, it's fifteen minutes to Siesta Key -- "America's #1 Beach"! Kid and pet friendly, paradise awaits... Sarasota is the best in family vacation fun. It's also a wonderful place to recharge solo. 5 minutes to Interstate-75 and easy access to everything in Sarasota, this home is in a quiet, safe neighborhood adjacent to the Amish community - with its excellent food and quaint local shopping - including a fresh produce market, handmade quilts, and the best pies in town. Guests have access to the whole house. Feel free to use my bicycle, linens, washer and dryer, etc. Please leave it as tidy as you find it. Thanks! I often travel for work, so interaction may take place entirely on the internet. I'll make sure you have the keys, and I can always be reached to answer questions. Have a great time! I love that my neighborhood is close to shopping, the interstate, the beaches, public buses, and everything Sarasota has to offer. It's so convenient... There's a bus stop close by, but I'd suggest renting a car since Sarasota is pretty spread out geographically. There's plenty of free parking in the driveway, on the road and throughout town. "Mi Casa Es Su Casa!"
