We couldn't have asked for a more perfect March get away than we had at this lovely condo! Everything that you needed was there ready for your use. The condo was spotless and in perfect order when we arrived. Working with Dianna was a breeze, she even managed to set aside a perfect week of weather for us. We would love to return next winter! Many thanks for allowing us to enjoy your condo.

Everything was GREAT! This fully furnished condo accomodated my family and friends wonderfully. All we had to do was bring the groceries, everything else was supplied for us. The beach is literally a few steps from the room which was great. I was able to watch my daughter from the balcony while she swam in the pool with her friends...That was a big +. Everything about this place is great. It felt like a home away from home. I recommend taking advantage and cooking on the grills that they have there too! It's a very nice way to spend an evening, having a drink by the ocean, watching the sunset while cooking some delicious food for the family. There's even tables that allow you to eat out there too! Oh and bring your fishing poles!!! I caught some nice snook while i was there!! I plan on making this a regular place to visit and recommend it to anyone planning on vacationing in the area. Enjoy. I did!!


The best Vacation I've had in my life!

The best Vacation I've had in my life!

February 26, 2009

This Place was Awesome! The best Vacation I've had in my life! The Beach was gorgeous, the people were so friendly; and the condo itself was so new and furnished! All I brought was a bag full of clothes, and that's all you really need! This condo was newly renovated, and it showed, top to bottom, room to room! There was a full kitchen, and an eat in dining room, master bedroom, guest bedroom, living room even its own private terrace area overlooking the shore, which is furnished like the rest of the condo! I didn't even mention the dinner that we grilled right on the beach! The condo actually had a courtyard with picnic tables and three well-kept grills! Perfect for our Romantic dinner under the stars!! I can't stop raving about this place to all of my friends and my family, they say I should get paid for advertising, but it's just THAT GOOD!! I cannot stop day dreaming of being back there watching the sun rise, set, collecting dozen's of seashells ... etc!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

My wife and I were very pleased with this property. The photos and descriptions of the ameneties within and outside the unit were completely accurate. Dianna, the property manager, quickly responded to any questions and concerns we had. The unit was clean and ready when we arrived. The grounds, pool and beach are well maintained and easily accessible from the rental.

~Mar from Northern Kentucky

As I read the other reviews I see that they are recommended for mostly families or older vacationers. We are a young couple in our twenties, and couldn't have had more fun. Everyone in the complex is super nice. The condo itself is terrific. The beach is as seen in the pictures. It's great. The owners are a delight and make the stay as smooth and easy for you as possible.
~Lindenauer Family, from Florida and Ohio

This condo was very true as advertised, in a great location and very clean. It was super comfortable. What a great, beautiful and peaceful place to stay for a very reasonable price. The owner is very helpful and delightful. I would definitely highly recommend this condo to anyone and look forward to staying here again in the future.

We had a wonderful trip. The beach was beautiful (chairs included). The accomodations are all updated and everything you need is provided (towels, cookware, etc). The grounds are well taken care of and the office staff is friendly. We had a small problem while there, but the owner and owner's agent were so attentive and understanding it was resolved in a matter of hours. I would highly recommend it to any traveler who enjoys beach living.

We loved the condo, very clean! Great location, family friendly! We can't wait to return! The owners were great to deal with. Would recommend highly!

We stayed in #208 from 12-20 to 12-27-09, and we didn't want to leave! The condo was very clean and pleasant. The complex was well kept and quiet. We were amazed to find many amenities in the condo, such as beach towels. We would highly recommend this well- maintained and well-managed vacation spot!

This was a very comfortable and large condo. I also loved that the bedrooms are down the hall from the family room so our kids can sleep without being disturbed by the tv noise.

The first thing that struck us was how spotless the condo was. Everything we need was there for us and we thoroughly enjoyed the balcony. The location of the Sand Cay is perfect as it was close to several of our favorite restaurants (Mar Vista, Lazy Lobster, and Euphemia Hay). The only negative was the mattress in the master bdrm. It was much too soft for our liking. All things considered my wife and I are looking forward to returning. It was also great dealing with Diana. She went above and beyond in making sure we enjoyed our vacation at the Sand Cay.

Thank you so much for our wonderful stay at your condo! It was great from the moment we entered. Everything was spotless and all of the furnishing seemed brand new. Our daughter loved the bunk bed in the 2nd bedroom. The master bedroom was very spacious with 2 closets and super comfy bed. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook with. All of which was super clean and looked brand new. Even the flat top range was spotless which I know is hard to keep clean because I have one! We enjoyed being so close to the pool (and ocean of course) and the deck was fabulous. The kids enjoyed the beach toys too. I love that a stroller, high chair and pack and play were there for our use. It really felt like a home away from home. The location is superb. It's very close to the grocery store and steps from the ocean. St. Armands circle is just a short drive too.
I highly recommend your condo to anyone wanting to enjoy a nice, relaxing vacation in Longboat Key.

I really enjoyed this place. Our family and I had a wonderful time. The condo was beautiful as well as the entire unit, landscape. The area is very quiet, a great place to take your kids. I will definately be coming back again.
Jennifer, 6/15/09

A lovely condo with a lovely view. We were completely comfortable during our visit and thought Longboat Key was the best vacation spot we have ever picked.
Cathi, 8/3/09

Just returned from a 10 stay. Both the condo and
complex was well maintained. A very beautiful and
quiet setting for a family vacation. Our family has
been vacationing on Longboat Key for the past seven
years an will be returning in the future.
Anne, 8/16/09

My family and I went down for a long weekend to stay and fell in love with this place! The condo had plenty of room for all of us, it was super-clean, had everything we needed all the way down to the beach toys. The area was very nice with plenty of things to do. The beach was the most beautiful I have seen in Florida. the water was so clear that I could still see my toes even when the water was up to my neck. Love this place and plan to stay a full week next year!!!!
Tiffani, 9/8/09

WOW what a relaxing vacation! Sand Cay Resort and # 208 are outstanding. We stayed the week of October 3-10 and it couldn't have been any better. The weather was in the 90's all week with very little rain. The ocean was calm and the pool was like bath water. The unit was 2bd 2ba and plenty big with a large screen TV to enjoy. The beach was just a few steps away and white sand. There were chairs on the beach to use and beach towels.umbrella and beach toys in the condo to use. There was even a fishing rod and tackle. There were tennis rackets to use but the court was only open when management was in the office. The resort is beautiful with all the landscaping and grass around. We can't wait to come back, but my 13 year old daughter thought it was boring because it was so quiet. There aren't alot of activities on Longboat but Anna Maria Island and Bradenton are not far away with plenty to do and see. We recommend the Rod and Reel Pier at the end of Anna Maria Island for fish.
Dianna is great to work with on the rental as well. So why go anywhere else. Look forward to seeing you soon in paradise.

Kenneth, 11/03/09

Our stay at this property was fantastic. The entire Sand Cay complex is a great layout - including a beautiful pool, nice shuffleboard and tennis courts, picturesque picnic areas and BBQ pits, and extremely easy access to the beach. It was also beautifully kept, and the on site staff was very helpful.

The unit is perfectly located, offers easy access to everything, is nicely appointed and complete with everything you need for your stay. It offers ample room throughout - good sized rooms, kitchen, living room and dining area - plus the deck is great.

The vacation was incredibly convenient. We have three small kids and it could not have been more conducive to a peaceful, fun family vacation. I highly recommend.

We just returned from Sand Cay. This Condo was lovely. Would stay there again. Location was great. Looks right at the pool and see the ocean from porch. We met up with our 2 daughters from College and our young son. We all had a blast. Cooked and grilled every night. Beautiful beach , lovely grounds.Def would would put this on the top of our best vacations.
