Sand Cay has everything you need for an excellent beach stay! Our room was gulf view and was only a short walk to the beach. The price was reasonable too. Our unit was stocked with umbrellas and coolers for us to use...makes the travelling that much better. Enjoy!

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.
