Our condo has everything you will need for a relaxing vacation on the beach.

The island of Longboat Key...

... is one of the most beautiful places in Florida. Longboat was voted the second most favored island in North America, according to a survey by a nationally recognized travel magazine. Daytime excursions are numerous, so that your holiday will never be without plenty of activity. Orlando and Tampa, with their fabulous theme parks are within easy reach, and the nearby parks offer the local flora and fauna, and numerous animal attractions such as flamingos and alligators. Shopping and restaurants of all varieties are nearby as well. Everything you need to make your vacation perfect is within reach.

Sand Cay Beach Resort...

... sits right in the middle of Longboat, and invites you to enjoy the beach, the park, and the newly renovated buildings. The resort garden looks beautiful. Beach furniture, grills, washing machines, WiFi and and more are free of charge for you. The friendly people at the office are gladly there to you.

Our condo...

... was updated between 2012 and 2017 to include a new kitchen with granite countertops, beautiful new hardwood floors, new bathrooms, and painting and decor tastefully furnished in Caribbean style. The high quality equipment includes Bluetooth Bose radio, Samsung TV and partially Villeroy & Boch kitchen accessories. The condo has direct views of the Gulf of Mexico as well as the open courtyard and pool. Our little piece of paradise faces to the south and therefore brings in beautiful and ample light into the unit. At breakfast on the balcony, with soft morning sun, you can hear the lap of the waves as you look out over the Gulf of Mexico. Watch pelicans and sometimes dolphins from the patio. It is gorgeous.

We would like to welcome you as a guest of our private resort condominium. If you have any questions about your trip, we are happy to provide any advice you might need.

“First Class Unit 5*”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2016 Stayed May 2016 FOR 12 NIGHTS

This was the second time we have visted Sand Cay Resort but the first time staying in this unit and there is no better place to stay on Long Boat Key it is a piece of paradise. I would reccomend staying in this unit as everything was top class and the view is something else We have booked here again for October this year in this same unit so if that isn't a reccomendation I dont know what is, I am not one to reccomend if it doesn' t warrant it but this Resort and unit is certainly worth my comments The staff and amenities are also worth a 5* rating they couldn't be more helpful Thank You ..

A fantastic place to stay on Longboat Key

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a unit that had recently been modernized. The unit was beautiful with wood floors, granite counters in the kitchen and bathrooms. There is a view of the Gulf from the living room as well. Sand Cay is an excellent resort with wonderful staff. I highly recommend this place.

Nice location- needs some updates

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this condo over Labor Day weekend with another couple. The location is nice, you are a short walk to the beach. The condo is exactly as you see in the photos, the kitchen and baths are new. Kitchen is very well stocked, more than most rentals are. The are a few things that need replaced, the refrigerator is not cold enough and it you turn it up it freezes in spots, the beds need replaced along with the bed frames. They are so squeaky if you move a muscle you wake the other person! One twin bed has a slope to it. The sofas are worn out and uncomfortable to sit on. At night when all is quiet you can hear the paddle fans in the unit below, the keep you awake in the master and sleeping in the living still hear one below. There were lots of chairs and water toys for anyone to use, the condo has a nice patio to overlook the beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. The beds are only 13 months old but we will ask the caretaker of the resort to verify if something needs to get done. As we always want to provide everything in best quality, any comment is appreciated.

Welcome to the second most popular holiday island in North America. According to the reader survey in the 'Conde Nast Traveler magazine's 11/2010. Endless white beaches, fashionable residential areas, and numerous recreational opportunities are waiting you. The island, also known as Royal Key of Florida, is also very popular among celebrities. Several well known people own a villa on the island.

Enjoy the great view over the Sarasota Bay when crossing the bridges to Sarasota, Bradenton and Anna Maria Island.

Sarasota offers various cultural facilities such as museums, theaters, opera. Recommended on Longboat Key is the Mote Marine Aquarium. A large outlet is located in Ellenton. Have fun in Tampa at Bush Gardens and Adventure Island Parks. In the summer giant turtles lay their eggs on the beach, directly in front of SandCay. Unforgettable events are the nest openings of the local Turtle Watch organization.

The nearest Publix supermarket is just a 5 minute drive south. Bradenton and Sarasota offers an array of shopping opportunities.

In just 30 minutes you drive to the International Airport Sarasota. Tampa, Orlando and Fort Myers should also be considered in your flight search.
