Stay steps from sand, sun and turquoise waters with the occasional dolphin sighting at sunset. Facilities are well maintained, units are comfy and make you feel at home. Our kids love the pool and the boxes of sand toys. Quite and very family friendly. We've stayed twice already and will be back again!

We loved our time at Sand Cay! The laundry room was a lifesaver, very convenient, and free--thank you, Sand Cay! The grounds were well-kept and clean, the pool crystal clear and the beach just steps away. Our time there was relaxing, quiet and everything we were looking for in a vacation.

This complex is beautiful! Our condo was beautifully decorated, had plenty of supplies, and was everything we expected and needed. The beach is beautiful, the grounds are well kept, and the staff was excellent. The only thing that I thought could use an update was the pool area. It is a little dated, and just a rectangle. Longboat Key is... More

Truly enjoyed our time here. The condo was just like the pictures (even better) and spotless. Kitchen had everything you could need, just like home. We stayed on the 2nd floor facing the Gulf, and the views were great. Close to grocery store and shops. We would definitely stay again.

Nice & comfortable, very quiet. Wifi & cable stopped working, they came & reset it immediately. Had the microwave break, replaced immediately. Condo was nicely stocked. Beach was lovely. Very friendly, great service. Would like to stay there again

Have visited this property frequently for well over 25 years.....always exceptionally well-maintained. Condos all have complete amenities, close to shopping, restaurants, boating, etc., beaches are beautiful and water is gorgeous.

We've had family vacations at Sand Cay over 25 years. Things have not always been maintained as well as the past few years. Kudos to new management, getting owners to upgrade and maintain uniform linens, etc. Keep of the standards! We would like to see some beach cleaning during storms.

We had such an amazing stay, the unit was very clean, the staff was very nice and it was awesome to be so close to the pool with little ones. We go to LBK every year and would love to rent again.Thanks

We have made this a regular family vacation destination. Truly relaxing and enjoyable week... plenty to keep our kids busy and occupied. Plenty of things to do a short drive away, the beach, the pool and sunsets are more than enough to keep us busy!

My son and I stayed at Sand Cay Beach Resort in June and, although the heat was almost unbearable, the condo was fabulous - immaculate, spacious and quiet! We could not have found better accommodations. The location is near restaurants and grocers, and a short distance from bike rentals and St. Armand's Circle. It doesn't get better than that, and...
