Why Dianna K. chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

When searching for an investment property we wanted the total package: beach, pool, and a relaxed family atmosphere. Sand Cay has this all.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family had a lovely vacation at the Condo. It was very clean and updated. The kitchen seemed barely used. The kids loved having the noodles/boogie boards and sand toys. Which was a big plus for us since we did not have to pack any of that stuff for them. The location of the unit within the complex was perfect for us, overlooking the pool and with a view of the ocean as well. The resort was very clean and well maintained as well. We will definitely come back for another visit.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Unit was clean and well maintained, balcony is perfect for rainy days. Property is beautiful with great beach and pool access and plenty of chairs for our use. We were able to get into the unit early, which was a plus! Only two points that I would offer for improvement. The beds could have been more comfortable and would definitely have liked a ceiling fan or at least been able to lower the thermostat for sleeping. Otherwise was great, and we all agreed we would definitely return.

Loved Unit #208 and SandCay Resort

  • 5 of 5

Perfect unit for family with children. Well decorated, very clean, all inclusive, close to both the beach and property swimming pool. Our family has spent Memorial Weekend at SandCay Resort for the past 13 years and every year we leave with the same thought - WE MUST COME BACK NEXT YEAR!!! Thank you Dianna for making this special weekend another great one. We will definitely consider renting this unit again next year!

Really great condo

  • 4 of 5

Very nice complex with friendly staff. Great pool in the middle of the property. Wonderful beach access and amenities. Our rental was 208 with a pool view to watch the kids. Unit offered privacy within a family friendly community. Kitchen was well equipped. King bed and TVs could be updated but not bad. Kid bunk beds were fun for the kids - good for kids only. Beach lounge chairs best around the area. Toys and umbrella available. They had a wonderful kids party for Easter. Great place! We'll be back!

Will come back

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our week of spring break at your place. It was a very nice week and we enjoyed the accommodations. The unit was big enough for our family of three for the week. Bathrooms are tiny so any more staying might be tough for that reason. The patio is also nice and it does have a view of the ocean and is overlooking the pool. This means it is a 1 minute walk to pool or 3 min walk to beach. One night we had 4 friends over and the patio fit 6 adults perfectly. Our friends said they liked our place better than theirs! There are plenty of beach chairs provided by the complex on the beach (this was during peak spring break) so don't lug them down like we did. It is a very calm complex with mainly families with young kids. May be not as exciting as a teen would want (compared to siesta key) but we enjoyed it.


Both bedrooms really need a ceiling fan. Also, I feel the decor and furnishings in the bedrooms is slightly dated. There is no full length mirror but was happy to find the mirror in the dining area so I could finish getting ready hair make-up etc while husband in shower. Also, we were having some difficulty with the TV's. Don't know if it was our user error or they are just outdated because we did see the flats screen TV's in the master closet. This wasn't a huge issue for us as the weather was beautiful so not much TV viewing. However, if it was rainy, this might be an issue.

Overall it is a very nice place with great proximity to Sarasota, Mote aquarium, St Armands, Siesta Key etc. We would stay here again.

Car: recommended

Our condo is located on the 2nd floor (elevator access) and has been newly remodeled from floor to ceiling! It is unit #208. On site: laundry, video library, welcome desk, and ample parking spaces. The resort is handicapped accessible with elevators. The resort is located one mile from a Publix (supermarket) that offers good options in terms of food and beverages. A pharmacy is adjacent to the supermarket. Bicycle rental is available at Ace Hardware, 5 minutes from the resort. Beside the resort is the Hilton hotel, which rents sea-doos and small catamarans. There are many restaurants on the Island that offer a variety of types of foods at different price levels. A few minutes south of the resort is St. Armands' Circle, which offers a multitude of boutiques, restaurants, bars and a lovely 'promenade'. You will enjoy the pace and the security of this island and the quality of foods. Find the Sand Bar on Anna Maria Island, or discover the Mar Vista less than 3 miles north.

Other Activities: Para-sailing, shopping, boating.
