Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We spent several vacations in Florida and found nothing better to stay than Sand Cay Resort.

So we were very happy when this condo was available for purchase.

What makes this condo unique

We love the small familiar resort type, the easy access to the beach, the nearby heated pool and the privacy of the third floor with the wonderful view from the balcony.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My daughter and I are now home, but I just wanted to reach out to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in your condo at Sand Cay. I have stayed in many condos in different Florida locations. I have to say that yours exceeded any I have stayed in. The furnishings and amenities provided were appreciated, as well as the cleanliness and extras like beach towels, drying hooks, beach chairs, hangers, plenty of dishes including a blender. Thank you for letting us rent from you. We had a fabulous vacation.

Beautiful sunsets

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a home from home, well equipped beautifully furnished and very clean. The resort itself is well kept and the management are on hand to sort out any problems. There is a partial sea view from the apartment balcony and it is wonderful to sit outside and have meals in the sun. There are plenty of good restaurants a short drive away and lots to see, we would recommend the dolphin watching cruise from LeBarge at Marina Jacks. We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked this apartment for next year and are already counting down the days.

Top Resort, Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

It was the 2nd time that we visited SandCayBeach. We have already been there one year ago and our plan was not to visit USA again so soon. However, the holiday was so impressive that we came back. The resort is modern and in perfect condition. People are friendly and care every day for guests, pool, beach and garden with beautyful flowers and plants. We ordered some products at Amazon and the people at the desc received them for us. Very comfortable and we did not had to be there. The whole region is wonderful. Longboat Key is a perfect location for relaxing. The island is beside the hectic main roads and much clean and quiet. For shopping and fastfood Bradenton has everything. The beach has white and fine sand. There is a big box with a lot of beach toys for the children. Great to play and relax. The condo is modern, clean and has all required stuff. We like the bright color of the furniture. Kitchen is also modern and full equiped. For sure it will not be our last visit at SandCayBeach.

Sand Cay Great Beach Escape

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Sand Cay several times and used this condo twice. It is a nice clean, very spacious condo with a vew from the patio. The beach in front of Sand Cay is a great place for the whole family to hang out and play. Get up early and walk the beach in either direction for some exercise it is extremely tranquil in the mornings. Sometimes there are dolphins out in front of the beach and there are always lots of birds.

Kayaking the mangrove tunnels is one of the funnest family activities near by.

Sand Cay Beach Resort

  • 5 of 5

The Sand Cay Beach Resort staff is superb, highly professional team. The resort is well cared for and Longboat Key is an absolutely beautiful beach and the resort provides easy access to many wonderful attractions. We toured Sarasota Bay, the Ringling complex, the Dali Museum, and St. Armand's Circle - all easily accessible from the Sand Cay Beach Resort. There's a wonderful variety of restaurants to experience. It's simply an outstanding base location to explore the region.

This was our second visit to the Sand Cay Beach Resort and both stays were excellent. The third floor unit we rented this spring was updated, clean, and nicely appointed. The unit more than met our expectations and we highly recommend it. Thanks for a perfect vacation!

Loved this property, hope to stay again and again!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at Sand Cay as well as our first time staying in Longboat Key. We loved our short 4 days at this property, beautiful, comfortable, well appointed with all the conveniences of home.

The location of this property is perfect, right on the ocean with a nice large pool for those who prefer not to swim with the fish. The beach is beautiful and there were plenty of chairs for everyone.

This unit, 309, was wonderful and perfect with the two bathroom considering we have two teenagers. Loved the kitchen, it had every gadget except crab leg crackers and we made them twice but thats what my husbands for, lol. Really loved this unit and got our exercise climbing the stairs to the top floor, loved having no one above us. You can't go wrong here.
