Overview

About the property

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

We took a licking from hurricane Irma, but came out okay. We expect to be ready to rent by end of October or November and will update once a better date is known. 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. (I also rent units 109 and 111 on homeaway 4441696 and 4441714 in case you need more than one home.) 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 15 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

* third full bath downstairs

* three flat screen HD TV’s with full U-Verse cable package

* covered parking for 2 vehicles or 1 vehicle and boat trailer

* walk in closet and luxury beds and furniture

* beach chairs, cooler, beach toys,

* Fishing poles

* Kayak

* Bicycles

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.

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

We fell in love with the Keys and decided to buy this to make it that much easier to visit. Sunrise Beach Resort is the perfect blend of Keys life. jIt is just close enough to Key West when you want action and secluded enough for relaxing anytime.

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.

Lovely Townhouse! Well equipped and convenient location! Owner was very responsive.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. John was very accommodating. House is stocked with great kitchen items, crockpot, keurig, coffee pot, some spices, tea, coffee, trash bags, dishwasher detergent and cleaning supplies! We had a problem with the refrigerator when we moved in and he responded quickly to our text messages. The refrigerator regulated itself by the next day. :) I loved having the washer and dryer available in the unit. Especially on the days we fished! Peeeew! They even provided detergent and dryer sheets (I brought my own bc I didn't know). Linens and towels were provided which was great. If you have a large family bring a few more beach towels. We grilled steaks on the nice grill and enjoyed drinks on the porches in the afternoon. Beautiful skies at sunset even though the sun sets on the opposite side. We rode bikes on the awesome bike path across the street that he provided. Rented a boat from Shelby & Dylan at Cudjoe Key Boat Rentals down the street. So nice to have the boat for a few days of snorkeling Looe Key and fishing by the lighthouse. Took the boat to Kiki Tikis Sand Bar & Grill. Great restaurants close by. Mangrove Mamas, Square Grouper, Buck Tooth Rooster, Galley Grill & No Name Pub are a MUST! Took the bus to Key West and Ubered home after a late night. The bus stop is right across the street in front of the Italian restaurant. Spent 2 days in Key West. We love that the house was so close but also loved being in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle! The pool is small but nice. There were times we had the pool all to ourselves! Loved the adirondack stools. Enjoyed sitting there early mornings and evenings with a book. The only problem we had was some of the other families renting around us. Their kids left litter around the pool and had all the kayaks strewn around the dock and sandy beach area. We could never tell which kayaks belonged to John for us to use because they were not put back under the proper house. That was certainly not John's fault! There were other families that were super friendly and we enjoyed talking with them. We will definitely return! So much to do! Next time we will stay for 2 weeks! Love Cudjoe Key! John is so easy to work with!!

Owner's Response: Yes, mini-Season is always a bit of a zoo. This year was the worst in recent history as far as too many uncontrolled children and uncaring adults. I believe one or two units invited some others in for partying so busier than normal for sure. Sorry about the neighbors lack of respect. I did make one improvement based on your comment. I attached vinyl yellow tags with the unit number to all my bicycles and kayaks. So even if they are left on the beach, you can tell which are yours to use. I also added one more, so have 4 kayaks now. Remember, I give you next year's rental at this years price when you rebook. Just remind me please. Hope to see you next year when we have our new dock and more convenient kayak launch area.

Just what we were looking for in the Keys!

  • 4 of 5

We found this property to be a great fit for what we needed during our recent visit to the Florida Keys. The house was very clean, well furnished and very accessible. It is just off the main highway, but set back enough that traffic noise is not a big deal. If you want a good view of the ocean you may want to get one of the other houses closer to the pool and dock area. This was not important to us, but we could view the ocean from our upstairs balcony. While we did not stay in the house much during our stay, it provided a good landing spot for us after our busy days. It is just 30 minutes or so from Key West and close to some great restaurants and parks. The instructions from the owner and advise provided were really good. The bathrooms for each of the upstairs bedrooms were very nice. Good find and we would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed it. I also rent units 109 and 111, which are both closer to the water for when you come back. They cost just a little more than this one, but I am happy to offer you this years pricing next year. Just remind me when you inquiry again!
