|Minimum Stay||6 nights|
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!

This oceanfront cottage was the perfect place for us to spend our 24th wedding anniversary. We had every amenity and then some. The gated community and pool were both private and convenient. There were many local restaurants that we enjoyed for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The house was very comfortable inside and out. We had bikes, outdoor fire pit and plenty of supplies for beach activities. We were located just outside Key West which made for easy trips into town for some fun excursions like the float plane to Dry Tortugas, shopping on Duval St. or going to one of the many public beaches. We would definitely recommend this beautiful seaside cottage and hope to come back again!
The property is immaculate! Beautiful views! The house feels like home away from home! The attention to detail and the quality of the service provided exceeded expectations! Cudjoe Key is conveniently located and has some of the best food around!!!
I loved everything about my week here!!! The owner is wonderful to work with. Exceptional!
Already planning our next vacation in this beautiful place!!!
My family and I traveled to the Florida Keys for the 1st time. I was a little skeptical booking a house over the internet but after reading all of the wonderful reviews we went for it. What an awesome vacation and stunning home! The house was clean and comfortable with more little "extras" than you can imagine! It is located in a quiet setting with beautiful sunrises and sun sets. My kids (12, 10 & 9) loved the kayaks and the pool, we loved the peace and quiet! The house is located close to great restaurants and the hustle and bustle of Key West is only a short drive away. We would highly recommend this property! The owners were wonderful to work with and answered all questions the same day/next day. We are looking forward to renting again in the future!
Absolutely loved everything about this vacation home. The location is terrific. It's a quick trip to Key West but you can return home to a quiet and relaxing home. Everything you need and more as listed in the description. The owner is easy to work with and the property manager, Tom, provided a wealth of information from restaurants to where to park in Key West. The photos are a true representation. And the iguana is a permanent resident!! He greeted us more than once. Most days we had the pool to ourselves. With the close proximity to the water the property does have a lot of steps so keep that in mind.
Our first time won't be our last!
My family just completed an incredible week at this property. The house was clean, well furnished, and located in a quiet area that was close to everything we needed. I can't say enough about the great time we had. I recommend this place to everyone.
We had not been to the Keys in a long time but we knew we wanted to be close enough to Key West to make it an easy drive for food and adventure. Cudjoe Key is the perfect location as it's not too far from anywhere and yet remote enough to feel you have gotten away from it all. We are a family of 5 and we enjoyed using the kayaks, riding the bikes (daily) around the neighborhoods of Cudjoe Key and on the new bike path, laying by the pool and relaxing underneath the house in the shaded outside living space complete with resort style furniture and outdoor TV. There were plenty of games, beach toys, fishing things, DVDs and informative brochures to look for ideas for things to do. The layout of the house suited us with two large upstairs bedrooms each with full bath and our son got the couch but it was great he had his own full bath on the main floor to call his own! We cooked in a few nights the kitchen is well equipped and ate out a few nights. Our favorites were the Square Grouper a must do with awesome fish and fantastic drinks, the upstairs bar was fun and we all enjoyed it. Our most memorable and truly out of this world meal was at Little Palm Island on Christmas Night. What a place, we felt like we were in FIJI but just a short boat ride away from Little Torch Key where you are picked up at their welcome center. Our daughter had been talking about seeing Key Deer all week....at Little Palm Island we had one visit our table at dinner!!! Amazing they are like large dogs and not afraid. The food was spectacular and the setting perfect. You have to call way ahead to get reservations but its well worth the effort and trip. Our other find, when our scuba trip to Looe Key was cancelled due to rough seas, was a last minute call to go charter sailing in Key West on Breezin' Charters privately owned and operated by the nicest guy. The seas were rough but the 42' Catalina cut right through and turned a downer day into the best part of our trip!! It was just us on the boat and we had an absolute blast. On a final note Rick, the owner of this home, was so easy to work with and super informative and friendly. Making renting from them a hassle free experience. This place is a great find on the keys!
Located only 20 miles from Key West and 5 miles from the only 18 hole miniature golf course in the keys. Renowned Bahia Honda State Park, listed as one of the best beaches in America, and a Dolphin Research Center that offers dolphin encounters for all ages, are also located in the area.
