|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
This luxurious home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is part of Sunrise Beach Resort, an exclusive gated community built in 2007 with only 10 other homes. Our home is third from the waters edge facing Southwest. Lounge in your private hammock or enjoy the gorgeous tropical landscaping and cool breezes on one of two balconies, dock or poolside, where you can soak up the sun steps from the house. Breathtaking southwest views of the blue-green ocean can be seen from the bedrooms and balcony off of each bedroom.
Your boat, up to 24 feet, can be kept at the dock for your entire stay 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 reefs in the keys, along with the excellent fishing. 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.
This casually elegant home has:
* high ceilings with crown molding and ceiling fans
* bamboo wood floors
* a gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertops
* private bathrooms in each bedroom, plus a full bathroom downstairs
* Three full bathrooms with marble counters (two showers and one shower/tub)
* 3 flat screen TV’s with HBO on demand
* covered parking for 2 vehicles or 1 vehicle and boat trailer

This is the perfect vacation home for families or couples looking for relaxing ambiance in tropical setting and for those who want it all – beach, pool, boat dock, kayaks and views.
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
This is our second home where we spend available weekends and the odd week just three hours away from home and work.
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.
We had a very nice time at this property. Nearby Mangrove Mamas had great seafood and prime rib.
The ocean views were great. Nice chairs for sunning or reading right on waters edge.
Lots of stairs, though. Maybe not the best for elderly with arthritic knees.
The owner was very responsive to our needs and questions.
This home is ideally situated between Key West and The beaches at Bahia Honda. Overall it was a very pleasant stay.
We had a great stay and thought the place was perfect for our needs. It was clean, well stocked and any easy location to get to and from. We'll definitely re-book if we're back in that area. The double master layout was very comfortable and, although the unit was on the smaller side, it was very efficiently laid out and didn't feel at all cramped for our family of 4. The unit was well decorated and had everything we needed from plenty of towels, to coolers and tableware. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home!
The home was very spacious and accommodating for our family. We enjoyed how it was furnished and decorated. The kids loved the pool and made use of it every day. Fishing from the dock was productive. Sitting in the giant chairs on the dock and looking out across the ocean at the sunrise was an early morning treat with my husband. The kids found lounging in the hammock a treat. As a family that runs the nearby paths and marinas to run around was a pleasant change of scenery from the North. Being close to area restaurants- shopping- and Key West made it the perfect place to rent.
This was the second time we stayed at this home and love it. Everything is clean and we maintained. Just booked for next year.
I have been booking VRBO properties for about 10 years and this unit was hands-down the BEST, CLEANEST, WELL-STOCKED, COMFORTABLE home I have stayed in. The owner took great care to have all the amenities and comforts of home (while on vacation) that you could want. The patio, dining set and grill got quite a workout from my crew....it was perfect!
This home and all that it had to offer was absolutely outstanding! We found all of the comforts of home at our fingertips. Home was beautiful and comfortable. Location was superb and neighbors were nice. Would most definitely stay there again and will recommend to others. Thank you John for accommodating our early check in request.
17 miles from Key West and all it has to offer, 5 nautical miles from best lower keys snorkel and dive reef, plus several wonderful restaurants within 5 miles.
