RELAXING SMALL RESORT ON THE BEACH - CONDO ON LONGBOAT KEY

Longboat Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our unit 307 at Sand Cay is located on the third (and last) floor with cathedral ceilings. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a large dining room and living room, as well as a den we use as an office (with high speed Internet). It has an open design kitchen connected to the living room and dining room. The deck is large, and offers a view of the pool, the garden, and a partial view of the Gulf of Mexico.

We renovated the condo this past year, with new flooring in the living room, dining room, kitchen and bathrooms. We also completely renovated the kitchen, and have repainted all the walls. We also completely renovated the two bathrooms. It looks great and is very clean.

The resort is on the beach, with BBQ pits overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Beach chairs are provided, as are beach towels, and there is a shower at the beach entrance. It has a heated swimming pool. There are bike paths all along the island. Longboat Key is considered one of the safest areas of Florida.

My wife and I enjoyed so much our vacation at Sand Cay that we decided to buy a unit and spend relaxing time at the beach. Sand Cay is directly on the beach. It is a relaxing and safe environment. We walk miles and miles on the beach, simply listening to the waves. One of the best moments is to watch the sunset with a good glass of wine! Other than that, we do roller blade and bicycle on the paved paths. We even shop for groceries with our bicycles sometimes! It is another pace that we love.

Pierre Couture purchased this condo in 2007

We lived for 5 years on the west coast of Florida but we now live in Virginia. We wanted to go back often and we were looking for a nice small resort on Longboat Key or Siesta Key. We found this kind of secluded 'completely renovated' resort directly on the beach. We fell in love with the place. We love the long walks on the beach, as well as some sailing on the Gulf of Mexico; so, that was it for us. When we saw the unit we knew it was the right place and the right size, with a casual and relaxing atmosphere.

Relaxing, walking, sipping a glass of wine on the beach and watching the sunset is by all mean what we love to do! No matter what the weather is... we enjoy reading a book during a rainy afternoon on our balcony... we like to just relax sitting on the beach and listening to the waves... we like to cook evening meals on the BBQ pits overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The resort is not crowded with only 60 units, allowing us to enjoy the pool or the beach... this is life!

PLEASANT AND PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We have nothing but great things to say about our stay on Longboat Key. The condo was exactly as described. We found it to be spacious, CLEAN and comfortable, including the beds and other furnishings. The kitchen was furnished with everything we needed. The beach is beautiful and not over crowded. There was plenty of room to claim your own space and to play beach games. Publix and CVS were also conveniently located for groceries and other needs. The ONLY thing we wished would have been available was a beach umbrella. Other guests indicated there was an umbrella available in their rental. But we knew be our stay that one was not available and we are able to purchase one at CVS. We had a great stay and didn't want to leave. We would definitely return to this rental if our travel plans brought us back to Longboat Key. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us!

Owner's Response: We are pleased to know that our customers had a great vacation at our condo at our small beach resort. It is also pleasant to read that our unit was corresponding to your expectations and clean. We had renovated the Master suite completely and we will continue to make other upgrades. As for the beach umbrella, we had one in the unit when we were there. Sometime the wind blows them away on the beach. We appreciate your suggestion and we will put another one.
We will always take care of good recommendation. We travel a lot and also rent units in different place in USA and Europe. Be welcome again to enjoy and relax.

HAD A GREAT STAY AT SAND CAY!

  • 4 of 5
Condo complex is great and really caters to families and making you feel right at home. Free DVD's, candy, popcorn and snacks in the office. Paddle board available for rent. Pool clean and plenty of equipment for shuffle board and tennis. Condo was nice, clean and recently updated. View OK, but you can see the beach if you look around some trees. We loved having a kitchen and plently of room to spread out with our family. Would recommend upgrading the master bedroom matress. We love Longboat and have been vacationing here for years. Not touristy at all and plenty of room on the beach to relax. Definately will be back to Sand Cay Resort.

Owner's Response: Hi I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Sand Cay.
We love the secluded island as you do and the beach is the best we have seen in all our travels.
We appreciate your recommendations. We will change the mattress, this fall as well as the living room set and the chairs in the dining room. We will continue to upgrade our place and hope to provide a clean and open air condo. Also the view. Although we don't want to mislead our guest, we know that there is a nice view fromthe dining room and the balcony. Let me know whenever you want to come back I will take care of your reservation.
Have a nice day.

VERY RELAXING CONDO ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute of our Longboat Key vacation. The condo was clean, bright and fresh. The views were amazing. The staff very kind and helpful. The location supreme but you do need a car. We will absolutely be back and we would recommend this condo to anyone.

On The BEACH! White Sandy and clear water on the Gulf of Mexico for unique Sunset every night.

Longboat Key is a quiet island with all services-grocery, pharmacy, golf, bicycle, roller blades and more. Greatest security in Florida because we are in between two draw bridges!!! Near the Mote Marine Aquarium, boat rental and more. But mainly THE BEACH. Family fun
