We have three condo units available in the same resort. We have onsite management and maintenance seven days per week, which has an "800" number and handles securely your deposit and final payment information, as well as other needs. You will love these 2 bedroom, 2 bath condos with a spacious 1,100 square feet of room to call your own. One is GULF FRONT and located on the second floor and shown in the first set of eight photos, another is on the ground floor and referred to as the GULF VIEW condo and shown in the next set of photos and also has a partial view of the gulf and the third is a second floor unit with a view over the courtyard and pool, referred to as the LUXURY condo which is shown in the last set of photos. There are elevators in the resort so all the condos are easily accessible and all are equipped with Wi-Fi. They are all located within the newly renovated Sand Cay Beach Resort, on the gorgeous beaches of Longboat Key, and near the cultural haven of Sarasota. The resort is on the beach side of the island and has its own private beach area, lounge chairs and umbrellas. The Sand Cay buildings run in the shape of a horseshoe with the open end toward the beach, and is a smaller resort so all of the units are very close to the beach and pool. We take very good care of our units and make sure they all have nice mattresses, fully stocked kitchens, and lots of extras to make your stay enjoyable. This will be a vacation you will always remember.
Also, there is an office on the property that is open seven days per week. If you decide to rent with us, after we agree to dates and prices, all deposits and other monies are handled through the office, so you are assured of legitimacy and your funds and credit card number will be given to them only and will always be secure.
The online calendar represents times when one or more of one of the units are available. Please inquire as to the dates and units you desire and if there is any flexibility in either the unit or the dates. The resort requires a three night minimum stay.
Descriptions Of Our Condos:
GULF FRONT condo on second floor:
Our gulf front condominium has a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico not only from the balcony, but from the living room as well (see the first ten photos). We only recently purchased our place, but in 2013 we replaced all the carpet, put in all new stainless steel appliances, bought new living room furniture, replaced mattresses, added ceiling fans in the bedrooms, put in new flat screen HDTV’s and Blue Ray players (Netflix/Pandora, etc. capable), replaced the bedding and wall hangings, and made several other improvements. If you like to spend time on the patio, you will love the beautiful new table with balcony height swivel chairs and the chaise reclining lounge chair with ottoman and end table. There is also an umbrella for the patio. We upgraded the kitchen utensils to make dining at home easy. We also added some fun stuff like a wine bottle fridge and an espresso machine and coffee grinder, you know, the essentials. We also purchased a play pen, stroller and high chair for our littlest guests! The condo has a wi-fi connection. There are flat screen HDTV’s in the living room (40') and both bedrooms (32') with over 200 channels and the closet near the front door harbors beach toys, three new coolers and ice packs for the beach and two beach umbrellas. The unit is also equipped with Wi-Fi. We also installed a safe in the Master Bedroom closet. Our unit has a private parking space which is right next to the stairs and elevator. The condo is a two bedroom, two bath, with a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room. The master has a king sized bed and the guest bedroom has two singles, so the condo can sleep six comfortably. Our unit has a very nice view of the beach as well. It is very relaxing sitting on the deck and watching the waves roll in!
GULF VIEW condo on ground floor:
If you like convenience and privacy, our ground floor unit is the one for you. The middle five photos pictured are of this ground floor unit. It has a walk out patio that leads you directly to the beach and grilling area in just a few steps. As the unit patio faces the exterior beach side (as opposed to the interior of the resort), you do not have people walking by your unit, so you have a high degree of privacy in this unit. And if you like to walk out to the beach, or like to grill, you are only steps away from both from your own patio. The unit also has its own washer and dryer. It has a king sized bed in the master, two twins in the guest bedroom and a pull out sleeper sofa in the sitting room next to kitchen. We just installed new carpet in this unit and have new Living Room furniture on order, to be delivered late May, 2013.
The GULF VIEW unit rents at rates that are 10% less than those shown below for the GULF FRONT unit.
LUXURY condo on second floor:
This condo is the most nicely done inside, the décor is beautiful and the bathrooms and kitchen are recently updated and gorgeous. The bathrooms have granite counters and beautiful tile and the kitchen cabinetry is very pretty, well made and functional. The furnishings throughout are first class as well. The view from this unit is out over the courtyard and pool, though you can see a little of the water and beach between the units to the west. This unit has a spacious Living Room as well as Dining Room and nice patio furniture as well. The LUXURY condo rents at rates that are 20% less than those shown below for the GULF FRONT condo.
Lastly, if you have a group requiring more than one unit, please let us know and we can assist you in finding good rates on additional units at Sand Cay.
Longboat Key is a safe, quiet beach community. While there are restaurants and stores for your needs, it is a very “residential” community compared to most beach front areas that can be crowded, have traffic congestion, and noisy. So, Longboat is perfect for relaxing with friends and family. You will enjoy the mild temperatures all year round, with highs in the winter months averaging in the low seventies and breezes off of the Gulf in the summer. The beaches in this area rate as tops in the nation by numerous publications and the beautiful white sandy beach directly in front of Sand Cay is no exception. Spend time on the beach lounging and watching the birds as you all enjoy the warm water and soft white sand! Longboat offers numerous activities as well; golfing, fishing (from shore or boat), biking (bike rental is right next door), bird watching, walks along the beach or on the walking/biking trail that runs right by the resort are a few of the casual activities available on the island. All of your needed conveniences are nearby as well. Longboat has a large grocery store, a CVS pharmacy, and several nice restaurants. It also has several churches and a synagogue right on the island. If this is your first visit, you will see why Longboat was recently rated the #2 island destination in North America by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine. Just across the bridge is St. Armands Circle, with numerous unique shops and outstanding restaurants. On the adjacent mainland is the town of Sarasota, with abundant cultural activities such as opera, museums, art exhibits and numerous dining and shopping opportunities. Included among them are the galleries of the Ringling Museum of Art and live theater at Van Wezel Performing Arts Center and Aloso Repertory Theatre. Other attractions are the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and Joan Durante Park. A family favorite, the Mote Marine has Gulf related marine life exhibits and touching pools. Just about an hour up the interstate is Busch Gardens which has rides, shows, animal attractions and lots of fun for the whole family. Within about a three hour drive is Disney World in Orlando. The area around Longboat offers numerous other activities as well, so, while Longboat is quiet and peaceful, it isn’t isolated.
Sand Cay Beach Resort
Our development, Sand Cay Condominiums Beach Resort, is, simply, gorgeous. While staying at another complex, my wife and I were walking up the beach. The outside beauty of Sand Cay tempted us to walk into the resort and take a look around, so we did. What we found was a newly renovated beach resort that has a tremendous outward appeal. It was then that we decided that Sand Cay would be the focus of our search for a Florida condo. We discovered later that Sand Cay had recently completed a $10,000,000.00 renovation, and the results are beautiful. Many resorts in the area are overdue for such renovations, and Sand Cay stands out as a very upscale, modernized resort by comparison. Since the resort has only 60 total units, and only six in each building, it provides a very comfortable, casual and uncrowded atmosphere. Sand Cay has great management as well and is rated #1 on Longboat in its class. It sits right on its own private, beautiful, soft white sandy beach (our beach is rated #2 in the U.S. in some national publications). We have a very large heated pool, tennis and basketball courts, shuffleboard, a free paddleboards, grilling area and lots of activities. There is a large open grassy area for the children to play and beautiful landscaping all around. The resort has a full time staff and provides basketballs, tennis rackets, beach toys, lounge chairs around the pool and for the private beach area, beach umbrellas, linens, bath and beach towels. Located in the middle of the island, Sand Cay has convenient access to all of the island’s pleasures.

Our condominiums on Longboat Key are located right on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico so all types of water activities are immediately available. Within close proximity are Sarasota and Tampa which offer abundant opportunities for all kinds of recreational activities as well.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My wife and I both grew up, and still live in, Omaha, Nebraska. Business brought us to Sarasota several years ago and we liked the area so much we decided to look into purchasing a place in the area. It was a long hunt, but we finally found the treasure. We are eager to share our place with our guests!
Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
We have been looking at acquiring a beachfront property for years before finally purchasing this unit on Longboat. The area offers a safe, peaceful environment, yet still has the essentials in very close proximity. There is a large grocery store, pharmacy, shops, restaurants and pubs, and other activities, all while maintaining a very homey, residential feel. This is what attracted us to Longboat. Sand Cay's beauty and great management made the decision to focus on a property in this association an easy one. We hope you will enjoy your stay, and please send us any suggestions for bettering our place, as we want our guests to have as pleasurable a stay as possible. Sand Cay, with its beauty, friendliness and great management can and will accomplish this objective. Very well maintained grounds and amenities, without the pretentiousness, make staying at Sand Cay a relaxing pleasure.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have replaced carpet, installed all new stainless steel appliances, replaced living room furniture and mattresses and generally upgraded the Gulf Front condo to a new level. Other upgrades are constantly in the works for the other units as well. This in combination with the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico make it an ideal vacation spot!
