Overview

About the property

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

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.

We had a great time. Would definitely book this place again. If any issues arose the owner responded by text within 30 minutes. It's perfectly located.

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!

Very private, nicely furnished

  • 4 of 5

This home worked very well for two couples on vacation. Two ensuite bedrooms upstairs, nice living/dining/kitchen on main level with covered parking and patio area on ground level. Well stocked with laundry supplies and basic kitchen supplies, really nice that unlike some properties the salt, pepper, spices etc. left by previous occupants are left for others to use rather than removed as in other places we have stayed. Unfortunately the palm trees at the house next door have grown to where the water can only be seen from the bedroom level balcony and even that is going to be obscured soon from unit 107. And the place smelled of stale smoke when we arrived, probably from the cleaning people who we watched leave the next door property with cigarettes going. But overall a very nice property - could easily see ourselves staying here for an extended period!

Owner's Response: I am glad you wish to return, and that you enjoyed your stay, but I believe your negative comments are unjustified. My property description states only the upstairs balcony has a view of the bay so that should not have been a surprise. Palm trees are very slow growing and the beautiful view from upstairs will be unchanged for many years. Each home has its own unique view and some bay views are better than others. My homes 109 and 111 each have more expansive bay views than 107 so you may wish to consider these for your return visit. It is also not correct to assume the people you saw smoking and cleaning next door also clean this home. Every home here is independently owned and we do not use the same cleaning people. I assure you that I do not employ housecleaners who smoke, either on or off the job for any of my properties. Perhaps you smelled cleaning chemicals or fresh paint? I know this can also smell "stale" and we had touched up some of the balcony paint prior to your arrival.

The best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

Can not say enough about how wonderful our stay was! When the owner said the unit is fully stocked he was correct. Spices, cooking oil, dish soap, only needed food and drink. Shampoo, hairdryer, body wash and plenty of towels. Unit nicely decorated and very clean. Beds so comfy did not want to get out of bed.Pool and small beach was just enough to have a relaxing day in the son. View was breathtaking. The view from bedroom balcony was just beautiful. The stay was so relaxing, like your own little haven. Would return in a minute!

Great place, great location.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place. Fully equipped with all the comforts you would need for any length of stay. Tv's, music, games. Kitchen also had everything you need to cook or make a cocktail. Small pool on site for cooling off and easy access to water for kayaking or fishing. Location is also good for driving into Key West.

The property was clean, bright, well equipped and in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the privacy we had. If we wanted to go into Key West, we were just a pleasant, scenic drive away. Kayaking around the mangroves was great exercise. All the amenities of home and more. Great place for a small family or a couple of couples.
