There's no tiki bar or zero-entry pool. And not an eatery or on-site salon to be found.
Sandy Key isn't pretentious. But it's got all the right stuff that a great family condo should have, such as gated security, two nice-sized pools (one heated), an inviting in-ground hot tub, handy workout room, and even comfy adirondack chairs nestled around the well-manicured, lovely grounds.
The units (we've stayed in two different ones) are clean, roomy, and comfy. And those big balconies, barely 50 yards from the lapping surf.
But for me, being at the edge of the civilized world with the Gulf Islands National Park beach a few steps to the east was the payoff. Nothing but a handful of picnic tables, sea oats, snowy sand, and hypnotic blue gulf waters for several miles. I'm proof that a sunrise stroll, right there, is the quintessential 're-boot' for one's spirit!
