About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Sand Cay Beach: We really liked it.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: 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.
