I have been coming to Longboat for 37 years & have stayed at Sand Cay since I can remember. I now bring my own children. We stayed in 114 this summer. Love the first floor units w/ the washer & dryers, short walk to pool & beach & we can watch the kids walk in & out of units from... More

This was our second stay at Sand Cay with our young children (ages 5 and 8). We enjoyed our first visit so much that we returned a year later and stayed in the same unit. As others have noted, some units have been recently renovated and others have not. Since the units are individually owned, they vary greatly in furnishings... More

I rented unit #114 from June 7-14. My experience at that unit was miserable. The bed linens were awful. They were harsh and the bed cover was thread bare. No ceiling fan in the master bedroom. Luckily we discovered a table fan and used that to get some relief. The master shower was a joke. If you have hair then... More

I have been visiting the Sand Cay for over 20 yrs and would not stay anywhere else on LOng Boat Key. It is midway down the key and so evenly available to whatever you decide to do. The beach is great and just a short walk, the pool is great and just a few steps, and we always play shuffleboard.... More

We've stayed at Sand Cay every year for several years now. It's an "old Florida" type of place that is relaxing and attractive, although it has its problems. In February 2014 we stayed in unit 318 for the first time for three weeks and were very happy with it with one large exception (more later). The view is lovely. The... More

The best part about this condo is the very reasonable price for the outstanding location. right on the private beach. some of the units are very dated. but most have great ocean views. pool size just right. I would definitely stay here again for a family friendly price-right vacation.

I have stayed at Sand Cay 4 times in 2 different units and have another trip planned this month. My family, friends and I absolutely love it here. It has great amenities, the condos are beautifully decorated, the staff is very friendly and the beach is amazing. Can't wait to return in 3 weeks!!!

Our third year here, with great reviews after the first two stays. But units vary dramatically. We stayed in unit 118 this year and were sorely disappointed. Very tired furnishings, poorly maintained (trim moldings missing, dirty dishes, bathrooms not updated with moldy tile in one, broken, non-functioning lighting, worn bedding) and in general need of further updating. On our 10th... More
