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.

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.
