About Wolfram and Sieglinde Allendorff

Sieglinde and I, Wolfram, have been married since 1967. We have a son. We both grew up in Munich. I completed my studies there in airplane engineering. After my studies, I began to work at the German Lufthansa. Through that, traveling became our hobby and led us to Longboat Key. After we have seen most of the world, Longboat Key became our dream destination. This is the reason why we bought the apartment in Sand Cay = our 2nd home. Every year we are there for 3 months and use this time for renovation work.

Wolfram and Sieglinde Allendorff purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Wolfram and Sieglinde Allendorff chose Longboat Key

We really liked it.

What makes this apartment unique

Located directly on the beach, a few steps over the lawn and you can already enjoy the Gulf of Mexico from one of the many loungers.

Medical care only a 3 minute walk away. A lot of restaurants nearby. A paradise for golfers. Approx. 35 golf courses can be reached in up to a 30 minute drive for low prices.

Look at the pictures and they will tell you this is a first class accommodation. The owners are constantly upgrading this unit. It is well appointed and there is everything in the kitchen that you need, including spices that they have for guests to use. Though it is not ocean front, you are not paying ocean front prices and it is just a short walk to the beach. Sand Cay is very well run so that any issue you may have (you won't have any) is easily resolved. Nice swimming pool, free laundry facilities. It is all here. The owner communicated promptly when I had questions prior to arrival. I can say enough about this place. I hope to be back.

Our 16 night stay was very nice. Nice and close to lovely beach.Kitchen fully stocked with every thing to a salad spinner. There is one thing I would change if I owned it. I think by adding ceiling fan in living area would save on air conditioner running.I would recommend this to a friend for sure.He is a very nice man to do business with also. Very considerate and thoughtful. We will return Our stay was in April 2015.

Being always in our condo during the "cold" period of the year, we appreciate your suggestion of an addition fan in the living room. We will check the installation with an electrican specialist when we are there in November this year. The owner Sieglinde and Wolfram Allendorff

Perfect "Getaway Vacation"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have vacationed on Longboat Key three previous times before this time. Our condo at Sand Cay was by far the best one! We enjoyed the others too but this is one is superior to all the rest. The décor is lovely and location...perfect! Everything was spotlessly clean and the furnishings in great condition. Since we like to spend our days on the beach and our evenings in relaxing, this condo was ideal. So comfy and inviting. The kitchen is completely stocked. We cooked most of our meals in and didn't lack for anything. Sand Cay is a well maintained and a fun community. We didn't have to leave the premises for entertainment.......sunsets.......spectacular! We would highly recommend this condo to anyone. The owners even called while we were there to see if there was anything we that is service! We will be back.

Beautiful, clean, and so comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the best we've ever rented! In fact, it has spoiled us for other rentals. Everything is clean, clean, clean. We like the uncluttered, calm decor. There is plenty of space to stow the many things we bring for a month away from home. The newly installed kitchen is lovely and fitted out with everything needed to prepare full meals.

I thought it might be difficult to do laundry with the washers/dryers in a shared facility, but it was actually easier. I liked being able to do more than one load at a time - and I never had to wait for a machine. The laundry facilities were always clean and in working order.

Sand Cay is a very nice resort. The staff members are helpful and friendly; they are on hand if you need them. The owners are delightful and take great interest in their renters' satisfaction.

Longboat Key is a wonderful island community with a number of excellent restaurants and a beautiful new Publix. Nearby Sarasota offers endless opportunities to enjoy art and theater. Great restaurants abound.

We would recommend this property to our friends and family, and we will come back if it's available.

We found the condo beautifully decorated and very well furnished. All things we could have wanted were provided in this rental. The location is great and convenient to everything. We loved the beach and the grounds are beautifully maintained. We had friends for dinner and all the women loved the kitchen. This place was perfect for us.
