About the property

House, 2 Master Bedroom Suites + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This luxurious 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 fire pit and 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

Wonderful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Kayaking was fun. Beds are extremely comfortable with really soft sheets. We found a couple local swimming holes that weren’t crowded. Restaurants in the area were very good. Very friendly people everywhere’s! Loved the whole vacation!

Outstanding destination!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our Spring break stay at Sunrise Beach on Cudjoe Key! This property had an excellent location - only about 20 min. to Key West & less that 15 min. to many other restaurants & attractions. The bay itself was quiet & so pretty. There was an excellent view from just about every window in the house. The house was amazing - from all the beach themed decorations to the thoughtful additions (beach chairs, towels & umbrella, fishing poles & tackle box, bikes, stocked cupboards, fire pit, & more!) to the property amenities (docks, pool, tiki hut & more!)! We rented a boat from Cudjoe Key boat rentals (great people to work with) & it was so nice to be able to dock it steps from our patio. We enjoyed shopping in Key West, as well as the sunset festivities. Boondocks mini golf & Tues BINGO were so fun. So many great places to eat, but then being able to grill at the house was awesome too! The small beach at the property was nice, but for a larger experience, we'd recommend Bahia Honda State Park - short drive to a nice sandy beach & beautiful views. Rick was very easy to work with & very timely with communications. Overall, outstanding destination for a relaxing seaside get-away!!

Wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

The condo had a wonderful view of both sunrise and sunset. We were very impressed with the amenities provided by the owner. A modern fully equipped kitchen was used all but 2 days. A gas grill was provided and we put it to use for surf and turf! The 2 bedrooms and bathrooms were decorated

tastefully. I was quite pleased with everything about this condo.

The owners also provid ed d bikes, kayaks and fishing gear. There was a storage closer full of stuff for visitor to use: beach chairs, a cooler, pool toys, etc.

My husband and I highly recommend this property. The owner and his on site rep were super helpful. Thank you Rick and Mike.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a fantastic December stay at this Sunrise Beach Resort house. First, the house is very well maintained and extremely organized with everything labeled (which is incredibly helpful). Second, this is a nice house, well furnished and good use of space. Third, great location to take advantage of the many offerings in the Keys (close enough for day trip and dinner in Key West, and easy to venture to islands to the east). Additionally, location on Cudjoe bay with kayaks is a great way to spend the day. Plus, pool is right beside the house. Finally, owners and property manager were extremely accessible and accommodating. We had a mechanical issue on Christmas Eve and Rick checked in and made sure that Mike (property manager) visited us that evening. Overall, we highly recommend the property.
