Sandy Key #323


Located in Sandy Key, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath, fully furnished condo is the perfect vacation getaway.   With approximately 750 feet of waterfront property along the sugary white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, Sandy Key is one of Perdido Key’s most popular condominium complexes.  This unit in particular has many desirable features and is considered one of the nicest units in the complex by those familiar with Sandy Key. The views from the third floor private balcony are absolutely breath-taking.  Tile floors run throughout the unit, the furniture is tasteful, and because this condo was not a rental, everything is clean and has been well maintained.  Other features of Sandy Key which contribute to the level of demand sustained by this gated condominium complex include two Gulf-Front swimming pools (one of which is heated during the winter), tennis court, exercise room, an on-site rental office, and a BBQ with picnic area.  Although this unit was not rented by the current owner, rental incomes generated by condos in Sandy Key make them exceptional investment properties.  Sandy Key is also a wonderful place to call home.  Permanent residents of Sandy Key are envied by all who desire the serene beach life that can only be found along the emerald green and clear blue waters of the Gulf Coast.
