About Lauren Chalenski

At Sunrise Cottage, we're serious about your relaxation. We keep things simple so you can dream about your beach vacation, not complicated paperwork. You'll receive complete information about Sunrise so you'll know what to expect when you arrive. We answer all questions promptly and treat you the way we would want to be treated. We extend a special welcome to our wonderful overseas guests - we promise to do everything we can to make you happy when you come so far to visit our beautiful island. Our goal is for all our guests is to remember Sunrise Cottage as their home away from home on Anna Maria Island.

Lauren Chalenski purchased this house in 2009

Why Lauren Chalenski chose Anna Maria

We purchased Sunrise Cottage because of the feeling you get driving across the island/mainland bridge. It’s the beginning of the rainbow. Sunrise cottage is the pot of gold awaiting you.

What makes this house unique

Staying in a cottage provides privacy while offering guests an opportunity to be part of a small community of friendly people who truly value their quality of life on the island. From the cottage guests can walk across the street to the beach to catch a spectacular sunset or walk one block in the other direction to peruse the many shops or enjoy the restaurants. Two guests once left in the morning to walk to breakfast and didn’t return until late afternoon because they strolled from shop to shop, enjoying wares and conversation with shop owners. It's nice to attain at least a temporary respite from fast food joints, high rises, and traffic - at Sunrise Cottage it doesn't take long to convert to 'island time'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I don't think there is anything else that you could do to your cottage to make it any better I wouldn't think of staying at another cottage on the island.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a vacation at this amazing home. We enjoyed the peaceful privacy of this location. The pool was the favorite place to spend hours of the day for our son (age 6). The home was clean and well appointed. The owner was very helpful with all of our questions and even e-mailed us during our stay to mention a special event going on on the island. We always enjoy AMI and its beautiful beaches and sunsets. We have already started planning for next years trip to our "little piece of paradise."

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Sunrise Cottage was the perfect family vacation. The cottage is in beautiful condition, has everything you need for a week getaway and the pool is perfect! The location is ideal as it is literally across the street from the beach and an easy walk to restaurants and shops. It is in a low key location on the island which is what we prefer in a vacation spot. The most amazing landscaping as well... as you sit by the pool you are surrounded by lush Florida foliage and the setting is very private. My 2 kids still refer to "the florida house" as their favorite place they have ever visited! Lauren has thought of everything to make the cottage a perfect getaway. We will return for sure!

Great week!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Sunrise Cottage!!! The house was very clean and had all the necessary essentials like coffee, condiments, detergent, and beach towels! The pool was absolutely beautiful!! Our kids aged 10, 8 and 4 were in the pool all the time! The beach is a two minute walk, so clean, powder sand, and the water was like walking into a warm bath!!! We totally recommend this property!! Lauren did not miss a thing when it came to convenience and being comfortable. We will definitely be back!!

Best vacation rental ever!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start....

From the day we first inquired about this property, Lauren (owner) was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and the consummate professional. She is quick to respond to all inquiries, and super helpful.

Now to the important stuff - the house. Beautiful! Clean! Private! Perfectly located! Comfortable! It was just an awesome exprerience from start to finish. The house was spotless, and Lauren thought of everything - high end bedding, towels, and even spa like dispensers for shampoo, conditioner and soap. Fantastic to be able to have a washer & dryer going while sitting in the gorgeous pool at night. There is even a dishwasher to wash all of the dishes, pots and flatware that come along with the house. If you need it, chances are it's already there.

The area - FANTASTIC! Walk across the street to the beach, come back to the pool, grill your lunch or dinner on the patio, and then do it all over again. However, if you wanted to dine out - the possibilities are endless - whether walking or taking the free trolley.

Shopping? Amazing - just walk a block or two and it's all there - or, again, take the trolley to anything you want.

It simply isn't possible to to adequately describe how incredible this house is. If you're on the fence about renting this property -don't be. It's the best decision we've ever made. This year my husband and I rented it with my siser and brother-in-law. Next year, we hope to rent both of Lauren's properties, as you can rent the cottage next door and utilize both luxurious yards through an adjoining fence (if you want to), with our married children staying next door.

BTW, as we traveled about the island, we found ourselves looking at many of the other rental properties available, and kept saying how lucky we were to have Lauren's cottage. It's got them all beat.

NY mayb be our home, but Anna Maria won our hearts. Thank you, Lauren, for the best vacation ever.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite vacations ever. Our family of 3 (parents and college age daughter) hardly wanted to leave this luxurious little haven for the whole week, even to go to the beautiful beach. Everything was flawless. The decor, equipment and amenities, especially the pool, were a dream. Lauren was as nice as could be. We hope to return!

This cottage is so centrally located that it is within 250 yards of the Gulf of Mexico, restaurants, shopping, art galleries and a gym, yet the cottage itself is a private tropical oasis nested inside Florida's finest flora.
