Our little family has been coming to lido Beach Sarasota area for years. It's a quieter beach but that's our preference but still pristine white sands. Beautiful water. Very clean. Parking and beach access is much easier than siesta Key. I was delighted to see that the property had some updates when I arrived at the condo. Furniture changes, paint color changes. Very nice additions and much needed changes. It's a great quiet place to stay this time of year. The property is always very clean. You can't beat the access to Saint armands. Very helpful. Staff will stay again

The service from itrip was excellent. The maintenance of the condo is in great need of updating by the owner. Many things are soiled and should be replaced or at least they need a good cleaning. I am hoping it will be done by the time that I return next year. S Knollenberg

“Walk to Lido Beach at Kingston Arms” is a fabulous condo with a resort-like feel. Close to all restaurants, shops, and beaches. The condo is equipped with all essentials, and it’s locale is perfect for going everywhere on foot! With 500 feet, you’re at the center of the circle!

Great location but this visit lacked attention
3/5 stars
We have visited this property many times over the years as always we love the location proximity to St Armands and Lido Beach which is important to us. Unfortunately this most recent visit presented missteps. 1. 1st day - AC was not working although quickly rectified it is managed remotely therefore the occupants cannot adjust the AC on their own so we froze at night and were moderately comfortable during the day. Occupants need to be adjust the a/c according to their needs. 2. Majority of the beach equipment in the equipment closet is worn and broken; one working umbrella and two nice chairs the rest of the equipment should be discarded. 3. It is customary for vacation rentals to offer full size toiletries for their guest - NOT tiny starter kits 4. Lighting in the condo should be updated: several lamps didn't have bulbs. 5. Better pillows must be offered; ours were flat and tired. 6. This visit the spa and pool were dirty during majority of our visit. Pool cleaning service should be more frequent when more guests/residents are present.
- Jamie

Hi Jamie, I am sorry there were issues during your stay. Sorry for my confusion but you are able to adjust the AC. There is a thermostat by the kitchen where you can adjust the temp to your liking. I believe this may have been user error. We do supply a starter kit for guests as a courtesy. We will make sure the check the beach items, pillows, and light bulbs. Sorry we missed these items.

5/5 stars
We (family with 2 kids aged 7 and 8) much appreciated our stay in Loretta’s apartment. It was quiet despite being one minute walk from busy St Armands Circle with a lot of restaurants. The kitchen is very well equipped and our children enjoyed the pool toys that were available. We would recommend this place for families.

Nice convenient condo!
5/5 stars
Great location and the apartment is very nice. Laundry is in the complex but a bit of a walk to get to. Kitchen has lots of little extras you don't always find in Airbnb - lots of glasses, plates, bowls and pots. Appliances are new. Pool and hot tub are nearby and very nice. Very convenient.

Great service
5/5 stars
We had an excellent holiday using Sarasota Beach Vacations. They were informative, professional and organised and the property we stayed in was in very good condition. We had a minor issue during our stay and the team was extremely efficient about getting it fixed right away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to someone else.

Great stay ! Great service !
5/5 stars
You cannot go wrong with Sarasota beach vacation rentals. The condo was as it was represented and the staff was attentive and checked on us to make sure everything was in order. The cable is basic (unless we did not know how to operate it, which could be the case) But TV is certainly not why you come to Sarasota anyhow. Lovely time in this spacious condo and so accessible to everything. We HIGHLY recommend this company as they are honest, professional and personable ! We will be back !!! Jack and Sandy Morgan
- Sandra

I am glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for the kind words. We would love to have you and Jack back next time! I can show you other places to shop :-)
