The Limetree Beach Resort is simply one of the best kept secrets in all of Florida. It's situated right on a beautiful private beach with sand so soft it feels like powdered sugar. If you're lucky enough to be there when the sand bar is there you can literally spend hours walking up and down the beach, in waste deep... More

My family and I have been going to Lido Key since 1969. When the Lifetree was built and offered sales, we purchased a week. While the landscape, like that everywhere, has changed over the years, Lido Key still maintains a charm reminiscent of the earlier years we spent there. This has become a second home for us and is sure... More

We have been visiting The Limetree Beach Resort since the 1980's. My stepdad owned several units during Christmas vacation and we would visit. We fell in love with the resort and surrounding area at first arrival. The resort is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. You can't get any better than that. The buildings are 2-3 stores high and... More

Having purchased units the first year they were available (1981), my family and I have been vacationing at the Limetree Beach Resort every year since. The facility and the management are both first class. It is true that about a year ago there was a change in management personnel. But that was simply the general manager retiring after 30 years...

We have stayed on Lido Key on a number of occasions and its our favourite in Florida. on this occasion we had not booked any accommodation because we had not planned to stay in Sarasota on this trip. We basically found the limetree by chance and how glad we were. The rooms were huge and spotless could not pick one... More

My husband and I have been coming to the Limetree for the past few years. Most recently we visited in July. Limetree is timeshare condos but rentals are available throughout the year. We have always found the rooms, pool and grounds to be clean and well kept. The rooms we have stayed in have recently been updated. Kitchens are well... More

We stayed at the Limetree with a friend who has a time share. She's been coming here for years with her family. Our room was overlooking the pool with only a slight angle of the beach. This area has a less congested beach, beautiful white sand . The pool is nice size and clean. The room was clean except for... More

My family has been going to the Limetree for decades--fortunately the people in charge have worked hard to keep the place in great shape, and that goes for the the grounds as well as the exterior and interior of the building. Limetree was established as a timeshare, but rentals are available throughout the year. It is right on the beach--a... More

The Limetree Beach resort is a gem amongst all possible lodgings on Lido Key, FL. If you are looking for a relaxed family friendly experience or a solo vacation, this is the place for you. This resort is not a fussy hotel situation. You move into an "apartment" and mange it all week long. You may cook if you wish... More
