About Mark Mattia

We are world travelers and consider our surroundings paramount when on vacation. We furnished our home based upon our standards, from the quality of linens to the beautiful gardens. We know how important vacation time is and hope to make yours one of the best ever.

Why Mark Mattia chose Lido Shores

We had been interested in this area for several years. Lido Shores has private beach access making it the most exclusive beach in Sarasota. It is a ten minute walk to St. Armands and close to downtown Sarasota. Perfect location was the major driver for our purchase. We plan to live here after our retirement.

What makes this house unique

The easy 2 block stroll to the private beach access, the beach itself (no crowds), the large heated private pool and the great terrazzo floors made the decision to buy an easy one.

The house had a old smell to it that hit me in the face soon as i walked in. I got in from a 10 hour drive with two toddlers and being their for 10 min their feet where black all glass had finger prints all over them. Towels looked drity I had to start cleaning as soon as we unpacked . I was very upset about that after driving 10 hours with two small kids . Overall after I got done cleaning the house itself was in great location and had everything we needed just needed a good cleaning .

Owner's Response: Christina, Very sorry that you experienced this on your arrival. We try to make the home as comfortable as we can and have had solid reviews in the past. We of course clean for hours before each guest arrives, but it appears that in your case it did not suffice and we may have missed something. We strive to give very good value for money so we again apologize that you saw fingerprints on some of the glass and that you felt the house had a musty smell when you arrived.

Clean and well-kept home in an excellent location.

Surprisingly, everything you need is already there. Well-stocked kitchen and bathrooms made the grocery list easy. The pool was large and heated. The private beach access was very nice. The owners are nice and responsive. We will stay again.

Nearest Airport
7 Miles
SRQ (Sarasota)
Nearest Beach
Lido Beach
Car: necessary

This part of Lido Beach is over a mile away from the public access so it is quiet and away from the crowd. You will often find yourself being the only ones on the beach. Watch the sunset while enjoying cocktails under the gazebo. This is heaven.
