Overview

About the property

House, 2 Master Bedroom Suites + 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. It features two tastefully decorated master suites each with a full private bathroom. You can soak up the sun on the beach, on the pool deck, or enjoy the shade under the tiki hut by the sparkling, heated 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 comfortable luxurious 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!

About Rick Von Harten

After years of exploring and vacationing in the Florida keys, my wife and I decided to purchase a vacation home on Cudjoe Key. We love this area of the keys with the best fishing and diving, yet it is close to excellent restaurants and to Key West. Furnishing our home with luxurious amenities is our passion and we hope you feel right at home with everything you could possibly need. We promise you will love the ocean views from every room in our home!

Rick Von Harten purchased this house in 2010

Paradise Found!!!

  • 5 of 5

My parents live in the Keys 4 months a year so my twin sister's family and mine have been spending a week there each year for over 20 years. We rented the same house for years and had found the perfect spot!!! Then the house was sold and we lost it. We rented a few houses but none were the same until this jewel! This house is amazing! Luxury resort quality linens, towels, fully stocked kitchen, bikes, kayaks, and I could go on and on. The sitting area with a fire pit and flat screen TV underneath the house is the icing on the cake. Did I mention the view? Holy cow! It is impossible to describe, you seriously must go and experience it. We have already reserved our week next year. Perfectly situated between Key West and the middle Keys. Do not miss out on the perfect house in the perfect place!!!!

Awesome oceanfront rental in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

This oceanfront unit in the Keys was perfect and had anything you could want. The space was perfect for two couples with two comfortable bedrooms with private baths. The unit was equipped with anything you could need from a well stocked kitchen to bikes and kayaks. Outdoor space was also excellent. There were great views and comfortable furniture to lounge in. The location is good about 20 minutes from Key West. We spent a couple of days in Key West but there was plenty to do in the general area. There were several good restaurants close by. I would highly recommend this rental if you are traveling to the Florida Keys!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Everything you could ever ask for!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Loved this property!!

  • 5 of 5

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!
