Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This luxurious home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is part of Sunrise Beach Resort, an exclusive gated community built in 2007 with only 10 other homes. (I also rent units 109 and 111 on homeaway 4441696 and 4441714 in case you need more than one home.) Our home is third from the waters edge facing Southwest. Lounge in your private hammock or enjoy the gorgeous tropical landscaping and cool breezes on one of two balconies, dock or poolside, where you can soak up the sun steps from the house. Breathtaking southwest views of the blue-green ocean can be seen from the bedrooms and balcony off of each bedroom.

Your boat, up to 24 feet, can be kept at the dock for your entire stay 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 reefs in the keys, along with the excellent fishing. Fish or kayak right off the end of the dock or you can venture out to experience the history and action in Key West located only 17 miles away. In the immediate area you’ll find several very good restaurants, a gym/wellness center, and Cudjoe Garden’s Marina, a full service marina offering boat rentals. The only 18-hole miniature golf course in the keys is located 15 miles away. Bahia Honda State Park and the Dolphin Research Center, which offers dolphin encounters, are other area attractions.

This casually elegant home has:

* high ceilings with crown molding and ceiling fans

* bamboo wood floors

* a gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertops

* private bathrooms in each bedroom, plus a full bathroom downstairs

* third full bath downstairs

* three flat screen HD TV’s with full U-Verse cable package

* covered parking for 2 vehicles or 1 vehicle and boat trailer

* walk in closet and luxury beds and furniture

* beach chairs, cooler, beach toys,

* Fishing poles

This is the perfect vacation home for families or couples looking for relaxing ambiance in tropical setting and for those who want it all – beach, pool, boat dock, kayaks and views.

About John Benckenstein

We are married and the kids are all out of the house so we have the time to spend on vacations like our Cudjoe Key getaway house. We enjoy being on the water, touring Key West and then have a quiet place to sleep and relax.

John Benckenstein purchased this house in 2010

Why John Benckenstein chose Cudjoe Key

We fell in love with the Keys and decided to buy this to make it that much easier to visit. Sunrise Beach Resort is the perfect blend of Keys life. jIt is just close enough to Key West when you want action and secluded enough for relaxing anytime.

What makes this house unique

Sunrise Beach is always a quiet place to relax. With nearby dive companies, or your own boat, you can explore some of the most beautiful reefs in the Keys just a few miles off shore. Nearby Key West (17 miles) is always a fun trip for a wide variety of food and entertainment. However, three of my top five favorite restaurants anywhere in the keys are less than 5 miles away. You will be staying in one of eleven stilt homes in this secluded gated community.

Clean, well stocked condo - great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed our time at this condo! Perfect set-up for our family. We really enjoyed the pool area, riding the bikes and jumping off the dock. Great location with easy access to Key West and Marathon for more fun activities.

Great quiet area with a close pool and tiki hut was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for the 5 of us and had just about everything we needed. The pool and tiki hut were our favorite part. Quiet area but close enough to Key West for some lively night life!

Way Above Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

John's place was Amazing!! The house was spacious, beautifully decorated with "Key West" charm and had every amenity. The grounds were in mint shape and pool and dock appeared brand new. Each night we made our way down to the dock and Corona -Toasted the spectacular Ocean view Sunset then woke up early and greeted the Sunrise with a sip of Joe. I kid you not, Post Card views!

You're far enough from Key West to avoid all the traffic and crowds yet close enough to get there with a 25min drive.

Pretty sure most of the vacation rentals were occupied, as most had cars in the driveway. That said, you''d never know it, was very quiet and most of the time we felt like the only ones there. Their were 2-3 families with little ones and they filled the pool pretty fast, we simply avoided "Pool Prime Time" and keep busy with the Kayaks and Bridge fishing.

We didn't have a boat but saw one family bring one and another rent one from the local Cudjoe Garden Marina. The Docks had everything you need to spend the day on the water. The days we were there (Feb 19-23) the wind and waves were a little out of my comfort zone so rather then rent a boat we spent a ton of time fishing off the local Cudjoe Bridge.

We could've easily prepared and eaten our meals at the house but opted to help the local economy (and avoid vacation dishes). "Mangrove Mama's" Lobster Ruben is a must try! "Coco's Kitchen" makes the most authentic Cuban Sandwich you'll find in the Keys. (and super cheap!). "Slice of Paradise" (Delivery) was blah... Pizzaworks (Delivery) was amazing! If you wanted to drop a few hundred dollars on Fine Dining, "Square Grouper" looked great. They don't take reservations and you'll likely wait for a table. (It was always crowded outside). We didn't eat there and instead doubled downed on Lobster Rubens!

I can't say enough about the locals in the Keys. Despite the devastating smack-down IRMA laid on them only 6 months ago, they always went out of their way to ensure you were making the most out of your time in the Keys. A massive amount of work has gone into restoring the Natural beauty of the Keys and my hat goes off to them for pulling it off so quickly. That said, if you drive over to some of the back-road neighborhoods on Big Pine Key, you'll see the true destruction and chaos IRMA inflicted on local folks. Our hearts go out to the families who lost their homes and we're pulling for you to get back on your feet.

Our stay at Sunrise Beach Resort.

  • 5 of 5

Booking sight unseen is always a gamble. But what a winner we found in 107 Sunrise Beach. This condo has absolutely everything needed to enjoy a comfortable, relaxing time away. The space is also appoiinted beautifully creating an environment representative of the peaceful and amazing lower keys.

With several excellent restaurants nearby for convenience, or a short ride to Key West, dining was a lower keys breeze. With that said, staying in and creating your own meal in the wonderful kitchen is an easy and simple option.

We truly enjoyed everything about our stay and plan to return again.
