This beautiful home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is part of the Sunrise Beach Resort, an exclusive gated community built in 2007 with only 10 other homes. Location is a standout with Key West only 17 miles in one direction and Marathon 25 miles in the other. This WiFi-enabled, 1200 square foot home boasts two master suites, each with a queen bed, 32'' HDTV, private full bath, & access to the second floor balcony that has views of the Atlantic ocean. Downstairs you will find the third full bath, a 40'' HDTV & DVD player, sleeper sofa, dining table for six, a breakfast bar with four bar stools, a second balcony with lush foliage views, washer/dryer, & a fully equipped stainless steel kitchen. Whip up your favorite tropical drink and have cocktail hour on one of the private balconies, relax in the private hammock, or chat up the neighbors at the pool or beach. The ground floor offers parking for 2 cars and also has an entertaining area with a table and chairs and a brand new Weber grill.
Your boat, up to 25 feet, can be kept at one of the two floating docks located in the calm waters directly behind the house (first come first serve). Looe Key can be seen in the distance where you’ll find the most beautiful snorkeling and diving in the keys, along with the best fishing. Fish or kayak right off the end of the dock or opt to rent a boat from the nearby Cudjoe Garden Marina - a full service marina offering boat rentals as well as fishing, snorkel, and dive trips. After a day of fun you can drop your gear off right at the house and clean the days catch at the fish cleaning station found right off the dock/pool area. Within a few miles you’ll find several excellent restaurants, a gym/wellness center, and 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 (see our owners map below for locations and descriptions!)

Water clarity is mostly excellent and sea conditions are generally moderate. The reef is home to over 150 species of fish including yellowtail, angelfish, parrotfish, barracuda, sergeant majors, and moray eel. The lucky diver can also see several shark and ray species. After 7000 years of coral growth, about fifty species are present, many named for the shapes of their namesakes on land. These corals include staghorn, elkhorn, star, brain, and fire corals. www.floridakeys.com/lowerkeys/looekey.htm

About the owner: Three young families took a leap of faith in 2011 and purchased this vacation home - TJ & Mandy Schulz (Cincinnati, OH), Jason & Josie Hackert (Ludington, MI), & Greg & Kristie Gutierrez (Brooklyn, NY). Kristie & TJ are siblings and TJ & Jason attended college together. Our favorite activities while in the keys are fishing, diving & cocktail hour by the pool. We hope you will enjoy the home and Cudjoe Key as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Cudjoe Key: What we love about the keys is the natural beauty and all the outdoor activities. We love the lower keys, but didn't want to be too close to Key West so Cudjoe Key was the perfect fit. We immediately fell for Sunrise Beach and all it had to offer in terms of amenities - beach, pool, dock, views & nearby marina. You don't even need to leave the complex to have an amazing vacation!
