About the property

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

This main floor open concept 2 bedroom condo was renovated in 2008. Just steps from our beautiful private white sand beach, this unit is a perfect location for both adults and families.

The main living area has porcelain tiles with carpeted bedrooms. The fully equipped kitchen contains full size fridge with ice maker, stove, microwave, dishwasher and granite countertops. The master bedroom has a king size bed with new mattress purchased in 2016 and full ensuite bath with walk in shower. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds with a pull out queen sofa bed in the den. All linens, towels and beach towels are provided. Flat screen TV’s with cable are in each bedroom and the den. High speed wireless internet, CD player, DVD player and iPod docking station are available within the unit.

Spend your day relaxing in a chaise lounge on the beach watching the pelicans diving or the dolphins frolicking in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, make a sand castle, fish or enjoy a leisurely walk on the gorgeous 10 mile white sand beach collecting shells or sand dollars. Play tennis, or shuffleboard and finish off with a swim in our heated pool.

Other local recreational activities include walking or biking along the 10 mile path on Longboat Key, taking a stroll through nearby Joan Durante Park to enjoy the lush greenery and local wildlife, or golfing at one of the many local courses in the LongboatKey, Sarasota and Bradenton areas. Visit the local Mote Aquarium and Bird Sanctuary for an up close look at local bird and marine life. For those who enjoy shopping, St. Armands Circle, Bradenton and Sarasota boast many shopping areas along with the Premium Outlet Mall in nearby Ellenton. Depending on the season, cheer on many of your favourite American or National League baseball team at one of several nearby spring training locations or catch an NHL Hockey Game, NFL Football or Regular Season American League Baseball game in nearby Tampa. Busch Gardens or Florida’s major theme parks are just a day trip away.

As evening approaches, mix up your favourite beverage and enjoy spectacular sunsets from either the beach or the patio. Grill up dinner on the charcoal BBQ area located in the garden area just outside the unit or visit one of the many local restaurants on Longboat Key, St Armands Circle or Bradenton areas.

About The Owner

Our extended family has been vacationing at Sand Cay since the late 1970's. We reside in Toronto, Canada and enjoy all that the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico have to offer. We love to come down and just relax on the beach whenever possible.

Another great visit to the Sand Cay!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this pretty beach front unit ... mere steps to the sand and water, close to the BBQ grills, beautiful view from all the living areas, tasteful, new, comfortable furnishings, and well equipped kitchen. Website pictures do not do it justice. We travelled with several other families, and everyone liked this unit best. Everything we needed for a great vacation! Thanks!
