“just wonderful :-)”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2016

Saubere, sehr gut ausgestattete und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung mit allem was man benötigt und noch vielem mehr. Im 2. Stock (= 3rd Floor in USA) gelegen, über eine Außentreppe direkt neben dem zur Wohnung gehörenden Parkplatz oder per Aufzug erreichbar. Da es die oberste Wohnung ist, hat das Wohnzimmer eine hohe Zimmerdecke und man hört insgesamt keine Geräusche (= sehr ruhig). Mit direktem Blick auf den Pool und mit Blick auf das Meer. Am Pool und am sauberen flach abfallenden Sandstrand sind kostenlose Liegen in genügender Anzahl und in der Wohnung ausreichend Handtücher und zwei Sonnenschirme vorhanden. Bei allen Fragen ein freundliches und stets hilfsbereites Personal im Resort Büro. => Jederzeit wieder gerne :-)

Owner's reply: Dear Dirk and Family, Thank you for this excellent review! We hope you will come back soon! Karin and Franz

“...as we expected - nice!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

Netter, hilfreicher Vermieter, gute Ausstattung, schöne, ruhige, aussichtsreiche Anlage direkt am Meer. Das Büro sorgte sich nett um uns, trotz Anreise in der Nacht. Wir als Familie haben die Ferien hier in vollen Zügen genossen und kommen gerne wieder einmal. Ein tägliches Tennisspiel durfte nicht fehlen wie auch die ausgedehnten Strandspaziergänge oder Ausfahrten mit dem Bike. Strand übrigens sehr schön, sauber, nicht zu stark belegt (man will ja nicht alleine sein) und gut ausgestattet. Nette Grillstelle direkt am Meer - nun, ja, die Amis hatten die grösseren Steaks als wir...;) , anschliessend herrliche Sonnenuntergänge - einfach so wie erträumt. Und natürlich: Shopping!

“Amazing”

Amazing 2/2 3rd story condo. Overlooks the pool and you can see the gulf from your balcony. The condo was very clean and had everything you could need ... Pots, pans, dishes. Just wonderful! Very family friendly resort yet still quite! Would've to come back again and again. We have stayed at the highly rated Key Club and prefer this resort due to the quiet and easy going stay!!

“Sand Cay 309”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2015

We loved the unit. It was comfortable and nicely decorated. The kitchen was clean and we loved eating on the porch. The view of the pool and ocean were great. We had a short but pleasant walkway to the beach. We had no trouble finding chairs at pool or beach. The paddle boards available for rent were a big hit along with the free movies and popcorn at the office. We would definitely like to return.

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2015

This is a centrally located resort that is quiet, close to the beach and pool. The orch is fabulous for sunny meals and views of the gulf and sunsets, The unit is fully equipped for kitchen and beach activity, Trasjb and laundry are easy as is parking, An elevator and luggage cart are also available. Service from the front desk is efficient and friendly, Obviously good weather helped to make this an outstandimg month. If the water pressure in the master bath was better and there were thicker towels , we would have been more delighted, The owners were easy to work with. ,

Owner's reply: Dear Joan, Thank you so much for your 5star review! We are looking forward to your next stay! Karin and Franz

“Sandy Cay - unit 218”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2014

I rented condo 218 together with my friend from Holland. We both have been to Longboat many times before but this was the best location ever. The building is nicely laid out, clean and efficient. The apartment was everything that was promised: excellent view of the gulf, rooms were clean and had all the amenities you would need. Specially loved the high chairs on the balcony ! The complex provides beach chairs and in the apartment were sunbrella's and beach towels. So we had everything we needed. The beach was beautiful and we were lucky to see dolphins and lots of birds. And every day there was a new turtle nest ! We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice and clean. Only (minor) issue was, that we wanted to stay a little longer on the last day, and the apartment wasn't rented after us. yet we had to pay $100 extra if we wanted to stay until 3 pm instead of 11 am. I find that rather steep. But overall we had a great time !

A great location with shops, restaurants and all you may need within easy reach. Very helpfull staf, lovely pool and free laundry thrown in. The Lazy Lobster is a must do, also Sarasota has loads to offer. Theatre, Ballet, Museums shopping and great food. Go there and you will enjoy a super vacation.

“Best for the Price”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2012

Enjoyed our stay for the week. Your condo is lovely, furnished attractively and in a great overall location along the key. Beach views were fine. Didn't expect to have to launder our towels; for a week long stay, it uses up too much time. We simply went out and bought a few inexpensive ones. The unit (maybe the building), had roaches (palmetto bugs), in it, and an uunpleasant odor hit us down stairs on the way to our car each day. However, Sand Cay is attractive, has a good pool, and access to the beach was easy.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review with the important informations for us. We forwarded the issues you are mentioning to the Sand Cay on-site office, and they are taking care of it.

“We Came Back”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2011

Although we live on the mainland in Sarasota we like to take time away from our home and work to relax at the beautiful beach. After searching for a place lacking crowds of people we found this gem at Sunset Cay. Sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning takes us to another world from our home across the bay. The size and decor of the unit is very appealing and there is everything you need to feel "at home". We stay in touch with the outside world using the efficient wi-fi. Restaurants and groceries are near-by. Walks on the uncrowded beach at sunset ends a perfect day.

My daughter and I are now home, but I just wanted to reach out to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in your condo at Sand Cay. I have stayed in many condos in different Florida locations. I have to say that yours exceeded any I have stayed in. The furnishings and amenities provided were appreciated, as well as the cleanliness and extras like beach towels, drying hooks, beach chairs, hangers, plenty of dishes including a blender. Thank you for letting us rent from you. We had a fabulous vacation. (Judy, guestbook entry, May 11, 2015)

Had such a wonderful stay in this condo for our honeymoon. The condo had everything that we needed and was beautiful! Decorated so nicely and such a comfortable bed! It was nice to make our own meals and drinks and be able to relax in the comfort of a home. Beach was gorgeous and close to stores, restaurants and bars. Will definitely stay here again!!!
