Sand Cay Beach condo description

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.

                      Location

                      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

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sand Cay Beach:
                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      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!
