About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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, with a queen bed in one room and a king bed in the other, 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 relax at the heated pool or beach area. 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!)

Highlights of this immaculate home:

* bamboo wood floors throughout

* a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops

* 3 full bathrooms featuring granite countertops and travertine showers (1 bathroom has a tub/shower combination)

* high ceilings with crown molding and ceiling fans

* 3 flat screen HDTV’s - 32'' in the bedrooms and 40'' in the living room

* covered parking for 2 vehicles and boat trailer

* walk in closet

* washer/dryer

* 2 private balconies

This is the perfect vacation home for families or couples looking for it all - beach, heated pool, dock & views - in a tropical setting with quick access to all the fun that the Florida Keys has to offer.

About Joanna & Jason Hackert

Hello! Our names are Jason & Joanna Hackert. We took a leap of faith in 2011 and purchased this home. We are from Michigan and love bringing our family here any chance we get, to make wonderful family memories! Our favorite activities in the keys are fishing, snorkeling and enjoying the Florida Keys relaxing atmosphere. We hope you will enjoy the home and Cudjoe Key as much as we do!

Joanna & Jason Hackert purchased this house in 2011

Why Joanna & Jason Hackert 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, heated pool, dock, views & nearby marina. You don't even need to leave the complex to have an amazing vacation!

Perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

We come to the keys several times a year for fishing trips and fun. This house was absolutely perfect for us. We enjoyed our coffee on the chairs by the water every morning, as well as cocktails during the subset. There were 4 of us (1 couple) and with the 3 ful bathrooms we all had our own space and it was ideal. Key west was close enough that we visited each day. The keys are our favorite and we will definently Be staying here when we return!! The host was also one of the best we’ve ever delay with. So quick with communication . A++ all around!

We were impressed with how beautiful and spacious the property is.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was fully equipped and the bathrooms were modern and clean. We loved the comfortable beds. The balconies were good places to watch the sun come up in the morning and to sip a cool drink in the afternoon. The pool and docks were just a few steps away. Overall, a great place to spend a week's vacation.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Cudjoe Key has done a great job of clean up with some more to go.

I did feel for this time of the year it was high priced.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Cudjoe Key and the Florida Keys have done a remarkable job cleaning up from hurricane Irma. The Florida Keys are definitely a little piece of paradise!

This is a great place to stay. The dock handled my 25' boat great. The kids loved the pool too. The location is very close to Key West or Big Pine but far enough away to still be secluded. I would highly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We were happy to have your family stay! With the marina right by the home and the pool for all to enjoy next to it, there definitely is a little bit of everything for all the family to enjoy at this location. It's a close drive to many wonderful adventures as well.

Winter warm-up

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay--very clean and well-equipped for people who prefer not to eat all meals in restaurants. The grocery is NOT close, but since it is a Winn-Dixie (on Marathon Key), it has everything you need, so if you plan ahead, you don't have to make many trips.

Location is great--close to Key Deer Refuge, Crane Point, Sombrero Beach, Bahai Honda, Captain Clint trips, and even not a bad drive to Key West--all of which are. worth visiting.

Our one disappointment was the "beach" location--really just a few yards of sand in the back with a dilapidated pier one cannot walk out on (warning signs posted). We had envisioned strolling along a beach in the morning or evening, but it really is just a spot to tan. Pool is also very small--not for laps, for sure. Perhaps we expected too much, but for the price, we did expect more Florida ambiance.

Owners did a great job communicating rules and expectations, and we knew exactly what to do so we could receive our security deposit back. They also courteously left spices, tissue, dish liquid, etc. to make our stay more like home. Washer and dryer are the small stacked ones, so be aware that a large group (only 3 of us, so no problem) will be spending a lot of time doing laundry.

Overall, despite our beach disappointment, we had a wonderful stay and would certainly recommend this property;

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you had a wonderful stay at our home! From our home in Cudjoe Key, there is a Winn-Dixie grocery store in Big Pine Key that is 9 miles away/16 minute drive. Also, from our home, Murray's Food Mart is just down the road 4 miles/6 minute drive. Publix grocery in Key West is 21 miles/about a 30 minute drive. All of these grocery stores are great to shop at to stock up your kitchen for your stay. Sunrise Beach is aware that the pier/dock located off the beach area needs to be repaired and there are plans to complete this in the very near future so all can enjoy (update: December 2017 NEW DOCK has been put in post Irma with new bumpers & cleats, great for all to enjoy!) The beach that is at Sunrise Beach resort is a minimal area that over looks beautiful Cudjoe Bay. It is a great area to relax in lounge chairs, enjoy the sun & sunsets and put your toes in the sand. When you need to cool off, the pool is just a few steps away for your enjoyment. Bahia Honda State Park in Big Pine Key, Smathers Beach is the largest public beach in Key West, and Sombrero Beach in Marathon are the beaches that are close for guests to enjoy walking along the shore and swimming. Thank you for recommending our property. We would be happy to welcome you back for another future stay!
