Zürich, Switzerland we expected - nice!

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 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!!

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.

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. ,

Sandy Cay - unit 218

June 15, 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 !

Best for the Price

September 20, 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

November 16, 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.

We really loved this beautiful condo with open kitchen and bright airy rooms with Cathedral ceilings. The resort is very well-kept with a large heated pool and a barbecue area at the beach. Daily we enjoyed the wide sandy beach where you find lots of seashells, plenty of beach chairs and incredible sunsets! Everything exceeded our expectations. Will be back for sure!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

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. (May 2015)
