This review of Sand Cay and unit #307 marks the 2nd time that I rented at this beachfront resort in Longboat Key. This trip combined business and pleasure - we needed to be near Bradenton, FL, wanted direct beach access, and also desired to be near Sarasota. We booked for one week 2/22/15 to 3/1/2015 and stayed in unit #307... More

It was really hard to check out of Sand Cay on Sunday. We loved our stay, and will definitely stay again if/when we are in the Longboat Key area. Our unit was very clean, beds were comfortable and decor was completely updated. I saw on some of the other reviews that the shower head/pressure in the master bedroom was terrible,... More

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Sand Cay in Feb.2014. Standing out in the rain with our groceries one afternoon, we found that our keys to the unit no longer worked. We told the office manager who informed us that they decided to change the locks to our unit. I asked why they didn't leave us a note.... More

Stayed in unit 319. Beautiful views, interior is beautiful too. Plenty of room. Enjoyed the balcony, very private. Would return without hesitation! If you are looking for a vacation getaway that is clean, updated, and peaceful, this would be a good choice.

I will begin by saying, we will be back. We had a nice, relaxing time here. The property is in a great spot & is well maintained. The pool is a modest, old Florida type pool, but was just right for us & the kids. I love that the chairs on the beach are easy to use & set-up. There... More

We stayed at Sand Cay the 2nd week of August 2014 and it was absolutely fabulous. We stayed in Unit 203 and it had the best Gulf View from just about every room. It was clean and nicely appointed. Not used to cooking with electric, so that was a bit tricky. We just decided to eat out every night for... More

The condo had a florida feel.... all white, mirrors and light laminate floors. it always looked clean with our sometimes sandy feet. It was very large, impeccably clean and... More
