About Lauren Chalenski

At Sunrise Cottage, we're serious about your relaxation. We keep things simple so you can dream about your beach vacation, not complicated paperwork. You'll receive complete information about Sunrise so you'll know what to expect when you arrive. We answer all questions promptly and treat you the way we would want to be treated. We extend a special welcome to our wonderful overseas guests - we promise to do everything we can to make you happy when you come so far to visit our beautiful island. Our goal is for all our guests is to remember Sunrise Cottage as their home away from home on Anna Maria Island.

Lauren Chalenski purchased this house in 2009

Why Lauren Chalenski chose Holmes Beach

We purchased Sunrise Cottage because of the feeling you get driving across the island/mainland bridge. It’s the beginning of the rainbow. Sunrise cottage is the pot of gold awaiting you.

What makes this house unique

Staying in a cottage provides privacy while offering guests an opportunity to be part of a small community of friendly people who truly value their quality of life on the island. From the cottage guests can walk across the street to the beach to catch a spectacular sunset or walk one block in the other direction to peruse the many shops or enjoy the restaurants. Two guests once left in the morning to walk to breakfast and didn’t return until late afternoon because they strolled from shop to shop, enjoying wares and conversation with shop owners. It's nice to attain at least a temporary respite from fast food joints, high rises, and traffic - at Sunrise Cottage it doesn't take long to convert to 'island time'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I don't think there is anything else that you could do to your cottage to make it any better I wouldn't think of staying at another cottage on the island.

Everything you could want!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic for our family of 4 (two kids). We had an amazing time on AMI and plan to bring our entire extended family out to rent both cottages for a reunion in the future! Would highly recommend. Beds were super comfortable and it's such a close walk to the amazing white sand beach!

My experience was amazing. We loved the pool especially my daughter. It had a perfect amount of shade and sun space. The property is in a great location in relation to the beach. Quick 2 minute walk and you're there. Overall I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely come back.

Perfect location with everything we needed and wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing week at the Sunrise Cottage! Lauren ensures that everything you need is readily available and the cottage is updated and super clean. Very close to the beach as well as shops and restaurants. The quick walk to the beach is complimented by the gorgeous pool at the cottage. That made the decision for swimming and lounging the toughest challenge of each day!

Wish we were still there!

Beautiful property. We've stayed at several on AMI and this was very clean and well-maintained. It felt surprisingly quiet and private, even with the very the central location near Gulf Drive. Would not hesitate to book again.

Great week on AMI

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived until we left we felt a sense of comfort. The neighborhood was quiet and the streets were not as busy as I thought they would be. The neighbors were pleasant and great for conversation! The house was exactly as advertised. It was perfect for our family of four and had everything we needed.... wifi, cable, and cold a/c what else did we need! The rooms were spacious and the separate bathrooms were nice as the kids had their own. The pool was great and the kids spent a lot of time in it. The beach was just a short walk and was only crowded on the 4th of July. Other days, there were a handful of families around. AMI offers some amazing food choices as given by Lauren. I would like to add one to the list.... The Ugly Grouper. It was a great meal with live music! We enjoyed our week on AMI and loved the house. We plan on coming back and hopefully staying here again.

Car: recommended

This cottage is so centrally located that it is within 250 yards of the Gulf of Mexico, restaurants, shopping, art galleries and a gym, yet the cottage itself is a private tropical oasis nested inside Florida's finest flora.
