This was our first trip to Sand Cay. I booked our unit on VRBO (Vacation Rentals by owner) instead of thru the actual Sand Cay office. It was a very nice condo. It had all the amenities. There are grills to use, a nice salt water swimming pool, and the management seemed nice too. It is mostly families or owners... More

We have stayed at this location the last two years and we absolutely love it. Nice and friendly service, quiet, and great prices. We highly recommend it. Close to the beach and the pool is ideally located right in the center. Close to restaurants and Publix. Great location!

Definitely one of the best units because of the private location and great views of the gulf. The kitchen has been updated. The rest of the unit is a little dated but is clean and comfortable. The beach is absolutely beautiful and quiet. No crowds here. This was our second stay and will no doubt be back again. We highly... More

My husband and I are return guests to Sand Cay for the last 25 years or so. We have never looked for another place because Sand Cay is the ultimate destination for a vacation on the beach. The service is wonderful, the apartments are beautiful and in A++ condition. We are looking forward to many more vacations at Sand Cay... More

We enjoyed staying at the Sand Cay. The condo was as described and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The resort is well maintained. Our only disappointment was the number of neighbors who were smoking on their balconies. We rented a nonsmoking unit, but it was impossible to leave our windows open or sit out on the balcony...

Sand Cay was the perfect getaway for our family. It was centrally located to other activities, shopping, and resturants. The beach was perfect and not crowded during our stay. The unit we stayed in was set up perfectly as well with a nice ocean view.

The condos (that we have rented) are perfect for our family of 5. The beach isn't crowded, the amenities are nice, it's close to wave runner rentals and shopping. The area is peaceful and relaxing- exactly what we are looking for in our vacation.

We spent a portion of the memorial weekend & week at the resort. The views were amazing from our balcony which was forward facing to the gulf on the 2nd floor. A short walk to the beach with magnificent sunsets that we could see from our balcony. Our unit was very clean, but, showing age. the complex was built decades... More
