Overview

Cudjoe Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Master Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This luxurious nearly new home, located directly on a sandy beach overlooking the crystalline Atlantic Ocean, is part of Sunrise Beach Resort, an exclusive gated community with only 10 other homes. You can soak up the sun on the beach, on the pool deck, or enjoy the shade under the tiki hut by the sparkling swimming pool located directly beside the house, also overlooking the ocean. Lounge in your private hammock or enjoy a drink in the double swing overlooking the beach. Or you can soak in the gorgeous tropical landscaping and cool breezes on the furniture located on the home’s deep shaded patio with a flat screen TV adjacent to the beach before venturing out on a kayak ride. Breathtaking views of the blue green ocean, Cudjoe Bay, and the sunrise and sunset can be seen from every room and from the two decks accessible from both bedrooms, the dining room and the living room.

Your boat, up to 24 feet, can be kept on the floating dock in the calm waters directly behind the house. Looe Key and American Shoal Reef can be seen from the house where you’ll find the most beautiful snorkeling and diving reef in the keys, along with the best fishing. Their off-the-beaten path location guarantees a trhiving ecosystem. Fish right off the end of the dock or snorkel or kayak the crystal clear, calm waters in Cudjoe Bay behind our house (kayaks are included). Venture out to experience the history and action in Key West located only 20 miles away, or explore dozens of nearby islands and a trove of nature preserves by land or sea.

In the immediate area you’ll find several good restaurants. For example, you can take your boat or catch a free ferry to Little Palm Island where you can enjoy lunch or dinner at the #3 ranked best resaurant in the world. A gym/wellness center and Cudjoe Garden’s Marina, a full service marina offering boat rentals, as well as fishing, snorkel, and dive trips is only one mile from our home. The only 18 hole miniature golf course in the keys is located five miles away. Pack a lunch and spend the day at Bahaia Honda State Park, voted the #1 beach in the U.S., which is only a 20 minute drive away. Folding beach chairs, a beach unbrella, beach toys and a cooler are available at our home for your enjoyment. The Dolphin Research Center, which offers dolphin encounters, is another area attraction. Several bikes are available for you to enjoy a leisurely bike ride down the scenic tree lined bike path which is accessible directly across the street from Sunrise Beach. There is something for those who want to relax and enjoy the views and for those who wish to explore all the keys have to offer!

Ground Zero for a phenomenal week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the first week of January in this house and can't praise it highly enough. The location is great: easy to get to any of the Lower Keys' attractions. The property is very well maintained and has anything you could want or need for your stay. The kitchen is well-supplied with tools and dishes and the groceries are not far.

We met Tom (the property manager) on our last morning. He's super friendly so on the off chance you DO need to call about something you'll be treated well. He's also got an encyclopedic knowledge of the Lower Keys so if you're looking for something to do give him a call for ideas! (Here's one from me: this house is less than a mile from The Square Grouper and if you don't eat at least one meal there (with pie) then you're really going to miss something special.)

One thing to be aware of if you have mobility issues: like pretty much every house there, this one is on stilts. You'll need to be able to climb stairs just to get in and the bedrooms are on the upper level of the house itself. For us it was a non-issue.

Last comment -- dealing with Rick on the business side was an absolute pleasure. He responded quickly to every email with detailed answers and as we learned during our stay, _honest_ answers. If our path ever makes its way back to the Lower Keys we'll be checking availability for this property first.

Everything You Could Want and Expect In A Rental

  • 5 of 5

I took my mother on a surprise trip to the Keys in mid-December; she had no idea of our destination until we arrived at this home, right on Cudjoe Bay. I wanted this trip to be special and memorable for her, and Rick's home absolutely did not disappoint.

The location is right on the water; walk ten feet from your parking area and you're standing in Cudjoe Bay. The view is just wonderful, especially from the second-floor balcony, which connects the two bedrooms. We didn't use the bicycles or the grill, but I made extensive use of the kayaks. I was out several hundred yards and it was only 9 or 10 feet deep at most, oftentimes much more shallow than that. I spent two hours just watching the alternate universe below the water, with no noises other than the wind. A heavenly place to be in mid-December.

Everything about this house is top-shelf. The ground-level area offers every amenity you would want for outdoor living, with tables and chairs, a hammock tucked away, and a lovely swing mere inches from the shared mini-beach. The first floor offers a modern kitchen and living room, with washer-dryer and bathroom. The kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, spices, and baking accessories. I made homemade pizza a couple nights we were there and everything I needed was right there, except for a pizza stone (which I certainly didn't expect in a rental unit). On the small wall between the kitchen and stairs going up to the second floor is a very detailed nautical map of the Lower Keys. I'm a ham radio operator and a map geek, and I loved this map. I want that map!

The two bedrooms are on the second floor, and the beds were as comfortable as any I'd ever slept on. I ended up catching a cold while there, unfortunately, but it was really luxurious to be able to take an afternoon nap in the middle of December with the balcony door wide open and the sun and breeze coming in. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, again, well-stocked.

One of the best features was a diary to write about your stay. I always think this is a very nice touch when I travel, and love reading about the adventures of others.

As far as things to do and see, the Turtle Hospital, the Dolphin Center and Pigeon Key are all excellent and worthy of your support. They all do good work and you learn a lot.

The house is modern and spotless, the location is perfect, and the host is very attentive. You can't ask for a better spot to stay in the Lower Keys. It's worth every penny. Just call Rick now.

Everything Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is Cudjoe Key is amazing. I can not say enough great things about it. From the moment we walked in, we could tell that everything was of the highest quality in this home. The place was spotless and everything was in working order. The pictures DO reflect the condo's appearance but it is even better in person. It is in a good location, right off of the Overseas Highway about 20 minutes from Key West. There are grocery stores, liquor stores, restaurants, and everything you need within a 15 minute drive.

The condo itself has absolutely everything you could possibly need...and some things you didn't even know you needed. The kitchen has new appliances, dishes, pots & pans, and a beautiful washer/dryer. There are plenty of towels, beach towels, cooler, binoculars, maps, toys for the kids, the list goes on. The beds are super comfy...plenty of extra blankets, pillows etc. There are large walk-in closets for all of your stuff. The views are amazing. You are not going to find too many places to stay where you can watch the sunrise AND the sunset from the same deck!

We used the kayaks several times. The water is very calm in the bay. I personally would not want to swim in the bay directly in front of the house but the Bahia State Park is only 15 minutes away and is absolutely beautiful for swimming and snorkeling. The pool at the condo isn't large but was clean and cool for our afternoon swims.

This condo was in a quiet location. There are only 10 homes in the complex and we rarely saw another person. It was awesome to sit out on the lower level with an adult beverage and watch the iguanas by day and the stars and cruise ships by night.

I absolutely loved this place and was ready to move in! But there are a few things to consider when renting this home. If stairs are a problem for you, this is not the place to go. You go up the stairs to the main level and up another flight to the bedrooms (that's why the views are so awesome!) Also, you will need a car. Other than a nice walking trail, there is nothing within walking distance.

In conclusion, it is obvious that this owner takes great pride in this condo. It is of the highest quality and maintained to perfection. It is the best condo in the group of 10 in terms of location and view. I would definitely...no make that WILL definitely stay here again when visiting the Keys. Thank You Rick, for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us for a fun relaxing time in the Keys. The house is very clean with everything you need and beautifully decorated. The views are wonderful from both decks, especially in the early morning from the deck off the bedrooms. We enjoyed using the kayaks and the pool. Also enjoyed watching the iguaneas. Tom, the property manager, had awesome tips and suggestions too. I especially loved the swing in the late afternoon. Several times I feel asleep swinging and watching the ocean! We hope to return soon!

Thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

Everything said about this rental was right on plus. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. When we wanted lots of activity it was only minutes away then we could come "home" to relax in the pool or just enjoy the scenery. Just bring your clothes and enjoy.

The Perfect Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Took the wife, son and his girlfriend to this place and we had a wonderful time. The accommodations are excellent. Owner has decorated place very well and has many additional amenities like Kayaks, Beach Chairs, your own personal beach. Boating/Fishing lovers paradise. Put my boat in at the marina around the corner, they stored my trailer, and we had a dock with power, water, etc. right up to the back door. Restaurants around this place are great. Boon Docks sells a frozen Rum Runner to die for. The Square Grouper is unbelievable. Mangrove Mama's had the best Hog Fish ever. Only 20 miles to Key West. A much quieter Key than Marathon, Islamorada or Key West.
