Fish or kayak right off the end of the dock or you can venture out to experience the history and action in Key West located only 17 miles away. In the immediate area you’ll find several very good restaurants, a gym/wellness center, and Cudjoe Garden’s Marina, a full service marina offering boat rentals. The only 18-hole miniature golf course in the keys is located five miles away. Bahia Honda State Park and the Dolphin Research Center, which offers dolphin encounters, are other area attractions.

About John Benckenstein

We are married and the kids are all out of the house so we have the time to spend on vacations like our Cudjoe Key getaway house. We enjoy being on the water, touring Key West and then have a quiet place to sleep and relax.

John Benckenstein purchased this house in 2010

Why John Benckenstein chose Cudjoe Key

This is our second home where we spend available weekends and the odd week just three hours away from home and work.

What makes this house unique

Sunrise Beach is always a quiet place to relax. With nearby dive companies, or your own boat, you can explore some of the most beautiful reefs in the Keys just a few miles off shore. Nearby Key West (17 miles) is always a fun trip for a wide variety of food and entertainment. However, three of my top five favorite restaurants anywhere in the keys are less than 5 miles away. You will be staying in one of eleven stilt homes in this secluded gated community.

Repeat Renter

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd time renting this property. We rented for 2 weeks each time. We were close to great restaurants, but we also grilled. The property is well maintained and has everything you need to have a great vacation. The only thing I would add would be a couple of bikes, but rentals are available a few miles away. The complex is quiet and the other renter were every friendly. This year we got to do a few things that we didn't ' get to last year. We rented a jet ski and they delivered it right to the dock on the property. Also hired a boat and captain for a 1/2 day of local fishing. We caught 9 mangrove snappers and grilled them for dinner. Key West is only 30 minutes away and we went there a few times. Also kayaker around and through some of the mangroves. Overall, we had a great time and plan to return next WWinters

Amazing property, amazing location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home presented better than the description suggests. We found the home to be VERY clean, well stocked with everything you would need (including coffee) and "turn key". The location was as central as it gets...short drive to Key West, amenities nearby, and very easy with a boat. The boat dockage was hassle free, not busy, and conveniences of water and cleaning table were very convenient. The bay into the dock is VERY shallow...so careful to know it will not be easy with a large/heavy boat.

Owner, John, is very responsive-fair-willing to make your every accomodation. We are definitely coming back!!

Very nice Oceanside home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as described. Everything clean and in proper working order. New tiki hut by pool was very nice shade for reading poolside in afternoon. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others. Owner was helpful and a pleasure to deal with on all topics.

One of our favorite stays. Don't miss out.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in one of these units. Had a great time in each one. I would like to go on record though as saying that John (homeowner) made staying in his unit over the top. I had conversations with John on several things in general and he was always so helpful. The views from his place were perfect. One of the highlights we will never forget is kayaking. We went to an island about a one and half miles away on the kayaks. Do not miss this if you stay with him. Worth every stroke of the paddle. The water is clear and we even got out in places. Johns place is beautiful inside and out. We really loved the way it was decorated. John we did as you advised and ate at Mangrove Mama's and The Square Grouper. As John told us don't let the outside fool you at Mangrove Mama's, it's worth it. The Square Grouper a little pricier but is worth every penny. Don't miss either since both are with in two miles of the rental. Being from Florida ourselves and going to the Keys often, stay with John you will love it. The nice thing is you are not in the crowd of Key West but only about twenty minutes away. You will enjoy the relaxed area of this gated community but close enough to go to Key West as much as you like. Thanks again to you and your wife John.

Excellent month long stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 4 consecutive weeks in June, 2014. We towed our 208 Grady White Adventurer down from South Carolina and our expectations was for a great house, great location, accessible boat docking, and easy access to the lower keys from our boat. The house, pool, and boat docks EXCEEDED our expectations! The house is exceptionally equipped with everything you could possibly ask for from a fully equipped kitchen to 3 full bathrooms. We have a house on the ICW in Little River, SC and really know what is needed for a perfect beach house experience. The owners of this house have obliviously thought out each detail and equipped the house accordingly. Here are some of the highlights:

•Great house with fantastic of Cudjoe Bay from both bedroom decks.

•Warm and comfortable furnishings in every room.

•Three full bathrooms!

•A well equipped kitchen for real cooks.

•Both bedrooms have independent doors to the upper deck which provides each a private access. This was great when we had friends and family visit during the month.

•Tech savvy including WIFI, digital cable in all rooms with flat screens, surround sound system, DVD player and IPod dock.

•Nice pool with great “happy hour” seating overlooking Cudjoe Bay…a great place to spend each evening.

•A very quite setting and we meet lots of new friends during the month (not to sound arrogant, but the neighborhood does attract professional type visitors).

•Boat dock with fresh water wash down.

•Under house parking which was great for those hot Florida Key days.

•Beautiful tropical landscaping and Polly’s Island (SC!) hammock.

•Nice paved walking trails just across the road from the house.

•The landscaping gives the feel of being on your own private tropical island.

•Kayaks, snorkel, beach day equipment is included and perfect for a day at the beach.

We absolutely loved our month in this great house. We love Key West…but not to be in the Key West “environment” all the time. The location provides quick access to KW without the crowds! The house is located close to some great local restaurants with live music. We had ZERO complaints about the house! We cannot recommend this place any better and rate our stay as excellent!

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, home and property! Perfect vacation for our family of five. Short drive to State parks with beautiful beaches and also to Key West. Owner was quick to communicate and even mailed us some clothes we accidentally left in the dryer. We will be back!
