                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: Sieglinde and I, Wolfram, are married since 1967. We have a son. Both of us grew up in Munich. There I graduated as an Aeronautical Engineer. After graduation I started working with Lufthansa, the German company. Thus, travelling became our hobby and led us to Longboat Key. After having seen almost the whole world, Longboat Key became our dream destination. That’s why we bought the apartment in Sand Cay, which is our second home. Every year we visit this home for 3 months and use this time in renovating it.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sand Cay Beach:
                      We liked it very much.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Located right on the beach, a few steps across the lawn and you can already enjoy the Gulf of Mexico on one of the several beds. Medical care in just 3 minutes’ walk. Many restaurants in the vicinity. A paradise for golfers. Approx. 35 golf courses are reachable in maximum 30 minutes’ drive, with reasonable prices.
