Sand Cay Beach condo description

Enjoy warm sunny days in this tastefully appointed beachfront condominium. The beach is right in front of the condo without any buildings or obstructions to block your view of the Gulf. This ground floor end unit feels more like a private home surrounded by landscaping, grassy lawn and the beautiful white sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico.

The condo is comfortable, tastefully decorated and fully equipped for the perfect vacation. Enjoy the many recent upgrades including: new patio furniture, new stainless steel refrigerator and oven/range, new stainless steel microwave, new king size mattress in master bedroom, and new kitchen counter tops. Whether you're looking for complete privacy or a great vacation with the kids, you'll find it here! The master bedroom has a private bath, two large closets, wall safe, and a 32' flat screen HDTV, and DVD player. The second bedroom has two twin beds, closet, 32' flat screen HDTV and DVD player. The family room has a 47' HDTV, DVD and VCR. Of course, there is high speed wireless internet and 200 cable stations!

The beach is 10 miles long and the gulf has a soft, sandy bottom. There is no coral or rocks to harm your feet and the Gulf gradually gets deeper the further you walk into the water from shore. It is the perfect swimming beach for beach lovers of all kinds. It is no surprise that Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards for 2010 named Longboat Key the number #2 Island in North America.

Enjoy a swim in the heated pool, use the paddle boards in the Gulf of Mexico, play tennis, shuffleboard, or just have dinner and cocktails on your private patio while watching a beautiful sunset.

The entire complex has undergone a 10 million dollar reconstruction project. All building exteriors have been rebuilt with new stucco, doors, windows, patios, landscaping and exterior lighting. The resort is well-known for its friendly atmosphere and a full-time on-site condominium staff. Every renter will receive a personalized information guide listing our favorite family restaurants, 'things to do' on and off the island, detailed directions from the airports, and general information about the condo and surrounding area. This guide will help you feel more like a 'local'.

Only minutes away by car are excellent restaurants and world-class shops, restaurants, and galleries of St. Armands Circle. Sarasota's theatre and cultural district is only a ten minute drive. Nearby, Sarasota and Bradenton offer more than 50 golf courses. Bike, jog or walk the ten mile long paved path along Gulf of Mexico Drive or walk the 10 mile long beach.

Longboat Key is one of Florida's most beautiful islands where you can enjoy the comforts and convenience of this vacation retreat among this beautiful and secluded island paradise.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We are a family of 4 from Illinois.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sand Cay Beach:
                  We fell in love with the view of the Gulf from the condo. Out of the 30+ condos we previewed before purchasing back in 2003, our condo had the nicest floor plan with the most beautiful view. We also liked the feeling of security and the friendliness of the resort. The resort has a lot of open space with large grassy areas unlike most resorts of its kind. I think it has the best stretch of beach on Longboat Key.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The view of the Gulf of Mexico from the condo is outstanding! Our family loves to sit out on the patio and enjoy meals or drinks while we take in the beauty of the beach and surrounding area. Being on the ground floor makes it very convenient for families and those who don't wish to climb stairs. There are also no buildings or obstructions to block your view of the Gulf. All resort amenities (swimming pool, tennis court, shuffleboard, etc.) are located further into the condominium complex; close enough to be very convenient yet just far enough for privacy sake. There is a lot of lawn area surrounding the condo making the unit feel more like a private home.
