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.

Wonderful 2 bedroom 2 bath condo, well maintained, very clean, great balcony, and has everything you need for a beach getaway. Pool and Beach access could not have been easier. Chairs, towels, toys, tennis racquets all provided for use on the property. St. Armands, and Publix is a short drive down the key. Dianna the owner is extremely helpful, quick to respond, and very accommodating! We will definitely be coming back to Longboat Key and staying at this location again in the near future!

The apartment is very comfortable and well maintained. It is nicely furnished, has a great balcony, and easy access from the parking lot. Dianna is a pleasure to deal with. She answered our questions promptly and provided helpful information about resources in and around Longboat Key. Would definitely stay there again!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We had an amazing stay on longboat key. The property was fantastic for a family of four. The subtle touches like beach chairs and beach toys were truly hidden treasurs. Due to some breezy weather we spent one day at the mote aquarium which was a value with all of the wonderful attractions they offered. Additionally if you stay i suggest dining at the drydock grill, their food was out of this world.

Diana was a pleasure to deal with and remained in constant communication. We will be back to long boat key and will stay at this property again.

Great place and great community. Owner friendly and easy to work with.

Short walks to both beach and pool which are both on the condo community property. All 3 of our boys were entertained and comfortable in the ocean as the water was no more than waist deep up to 100 yards out. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a beachfront vacation rental.

Great Location but...

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

First time staying in Longboat Key, FL. We really enjoyed the location. Nice Publix within 10 minutes of the condo. Dianna provided very detailed instructions and responded fairly quickly to emails. It was very quiet and the beach was never crowded during our visit in late August. We liked the location. The condo is a short drive to Sarasota, Bradenton, and Siesta Key. Decent dining and shopping options within a 20 minute drive. The condo was clean; the living room and kitchen were well maintained. The condo also had a nice patio to sit on. The condo had 2 small bathrooms, nothing exciting, serviceable. The second bedroom had a TV with a DVD player, but the cable box wasn't hooked up, nor did it work, which I found out after attempting hook it up, rendering the TV useless. Would've been nice to have the 2nd TV. The mattresses in the 2nd bedroom were not comfortable at all, my oldest son ended up sleeping on the couch; unfortunately, the mattress in the master bedroom wasn't much better. The pillows in both bedrooms were extremely flat and uncomfortable. The bedding (sheets and comforter) also seemed very old and thin. The comforter, I swear was all polyester, it was very warm. The condo could also use additional bath towels and beach towels. The bath and beach towels were small and not "fresh", again, seemed kind of old. I found out that a beach umbrella is a must when staying on the beach in Florida, the sun is extremely hot, it would have been nice to have had an umbrella in the condo, instead of trying to get one of the limited umbrellas you could check out in the office.

To be fair, all my issues were not addressed to Dianna during my stay, so she was not able to "fix" my issues, however, my wife and I thought they should have been addressed, due to their condition. I don't know that I would stay at Sand Cay again, just based on the quality of the beds.

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.
