About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Beautiful Gulf Front 2 BR, 2 Bath Condominium. Enjoy quiet, peaceful sunny days in this second floor gulf front unit. Directly below the rooms balcony, you are view an oasis of landscaping, grassy lawn and the beautiful white sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico. The beach is right in front of the condo with only a palm tree and an Australian pine to frame the view of the Gulf and the oasis like lawn below. The unit is easily accessible using an elevator or a single flight of stairs from the parking lot, where the unit has an assigned space.

Sand Cay Beach Resort is the closest thing you'll find to paradise with its large expansive lawn areas and beautifully manicured gardens. Only steps away is our white sand beach and the beautiful turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It's a popular resort for families, beach lovers or for a romantic getaway. With only 60 condos at the resort there is never a feeling of overcrowding.

In 2009, Sand Cay Resort completed a 10 million dollar reconstruction project. All building exteriors were rebuilt with all new stucco, windows, doors, sliders, patios, balconies, landscaping and landscape lighting. The property looks new and is absolutely beautiful!

The two bedroom and two bath condominium is very spacious with 1,100 square feet. The unit is equipped with linens, towels, beach towels, and a fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy 200+ cable channels and wireless internet. The resort also offers a full time condominium staff.

Bike, jog or walk the ten mile long paved path along Gulf of Mexico Drive or walk the 10 mile long beach. While here you can enjoy a wide variety of recreational activities including swimming, shelling, tennis, shuffleboard, bird watching, shore fishing, or just lay out on the beach all day. Local recreation activities include golfing, biking, deep sea fishing, boating, parasailing and kayaking. Longboat Key offers a wide variety of excellent restaurants and shops. If that's not enough, take a short drive to St Armands Circle where you will find more world class cuisine and exclusive shops and boutiques.

For your basic needs, Publix Supermarket and CVS Pharmacy is down the road a few miles. Across the bay in Sarasota you will find the superb galleries of the Ringling Museum of Art and live theater at Van Wezel Performing Arts Center and Also Theatre Company. For flower and plant lovers, visit Marie Selby Botanical Gardens or drive a mile down the road to Joan Durante Park. Mote Marine with its marine life exhibits and touching pools is a family favorite.

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

Recently, Conde Nast Traveler Magazine with its Readers Choice Award for 2010, rated Longboat Key the #2 Top Island in North America. Come visit and see why!

About The Owner

We found Sand Cay over 15 years ago, and haven't stopped enjoying the resort or all the island has to offer. All seasons are beautiful. Sunsets are one of our favorite 'activities'. There are never two alike. Enjoy!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Longboat Key

Unit 217 is unique in its position at Sand Cay and offers an ocean view from most of the rooms. Whether you are cooking a meal in the fully equipped kitchen, lounging on the love seat or couch, eating at the dining table, or lying down for a nap in the master bedroom, you can see the white sandy beach and the beautiful Gulf water.

Fantastic well-equipped condo with stunning gulf view!

  • 5 of 5

There were only two of us staying here which meant we really felt the spaciousness. We loved the huge master bed. It was very comfortable and you never knew someone was in it with you. There is a second bedroom with a twin and full bed. The views from the master bedroom, dining area, kitchen and living room are phenomenal. The windows are very tight and you have silence unless you choose to open and allow the sound of the waves to come in. We enjoyed the hightop table on the balcony and the two bathrooms were very convenient. We really appreciated the closet with leftover beach toys and umbrellas and the towel drying rack on the patio. You get a designated parking space and the condo is only a couple of miles from Publix grocery store. Easy drives on up through Bradenton to Anna Maria Island or down through St. Armands Circle and Lido Key. One hour and 20 minutes from Punta Gorda airport. We really enjoyed our stay and have missed our Longboat Key sunsets these last few days. Thank you!
