Loved Sand Cay. Nice property. Close to the ocean. Enjoyed the provided beach towels and chairs. Free laundry is a nice bonus. Our unit was very clean. Nice sunsets from our balcony. Elevator was handy when bringing groceries to the third floor.

We think the west coast of Florida is the best and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Our sunsets, tropical foliage and wildlife are truly memorable and a big reason why we have guests who stay with us year after year.

Stayed at Sand Cay for a family wedding. Condos were well-stocked, clean and comfy. Kids enjoyed the pool and the beautiful beach! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the coffee provided by the office every day! Also used their computer to print boarding passes. Great place! Would definitely stay again!!

Sand Cay is an older, three story, well-kept condominium complex on the beach side of Longboat Key. Unit prices vary based on proximity to the beach and are individually owned. Some units are nicer than others and have been updated with new flooring, granite countertops, remodeled bathrooms/kitchens, attractive furniture, big screen TVs with high definition, window treatments, etc. Units on...

Wonderful place to host a wedding. And very affordable! We rented 40 out of 60 condos and everybody loved it. October is a beautiful time to spend at the beach. Every condo is 2 bedroom/2 baths and in great shape. The beach was stunning!

We have been visiting SandCay for 35 years and always found it a relaxing and friendly destination. The beach is safe, especially for young children when the sea is calm. The apartments are all individually owned so differ in furnishings and how dated they are but all layouts are the same - 2 beds, 2 bathrooms some with showers some...

We were unaware that maintenance on most building occurs from the middle of September to the middle of November. However, they are required to work only from 9-4 so there is very little disruption of your time. Having an elevator is a plus but it's still a walk to any gulf front condos. It would have helped if the office...
