Wonderful family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented out both places and it was so wonderful! It was a place that made you feel at home with comfy beds, a washer and dryer, a kitchen with all things you needed, updated appliances, towels are provided including beach towels, she provides kayaks (double and single), fishing poles, a wonderful gated salt water pool and much more! There is a dock right in the backyard that is so fun to fish and sight see for things and it even has solar lights on the dock to see at night. Michelle is wonderful too if you need anything just give her a call and she will help you with anything. Thank you so much Michelle you made our family of 15 feel welcomed and enjoy our vacation!!!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented all three houses for a month in the summer 2014. We go to the Keys every summer, and this was hands down the best place we have stayed. Michelle was fabulous to work with. We get out on the water everyday and this compound is so close to everything, it's easy to zip out and back in if a storm pops up, or come back mid day, relax a few hours and go back out. We saved a ton in boat gas alone! Well equipped houses, fabulous views, beautiful wild life. Great times! Only regret is that everyone that stays there knows how great it is, and there aren't any full months open for next summer! We brought our 29 ft boat and dockage was perfect for it.

cute & comfy cottage !!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, son-in-law & me spent one great week in the Island Sunrise Resort's Cottage unit (the yellow house); I chose this unit because it had such character and we loved the fact that the door opens practically right onto the dock! Michelle was great to work with and was thoughtful enough to stop by the house and turn on some lights when she heard we'd been delayed and would be arriving after dark. The house was well equipped and cared for, the only things we missed and would recommend is some lighting out at the end of the dock and a bait/fish-appropriate freezer for Cottage-renters (I believe the newer home has one). The property is quiet and spacious, perfect for our laid back week. We had morning & evening visits by several Key Deer each day and a manatee visit at the dock on two different days was an exciting surprise! We also saw a squid alongside the dock one night and a lobster just hanging out with the many horseshoe crabs! All in all a great stay at a great home; this location is perfect. We hope to stay again!

Thanks again Michelle!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you like our little piece of paradise. Thank you for the recommendations. I'm already working on getting the small freezer for the cottage. About the lighting at the end of the dock, we are worried about the electrolysis on the aluminum pilings of the dock, that is why we have the solar lights instead of electrical lighting. Recommendations/suggestions are always welcome, we try our best to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Thank you again.

Great house, great time

  • 5 of 5

What a great time. We had a large group and rented both houses. Michelle was very easy to work with, even replaced a fridge when we first got there. We arrived a day early and the adventure began. House was well stocked with everything we needed, plenty of linens, two roll out beds, new grill, great pool, well maintained grounds and plenty of parking. Very private property with Key Deer visiting us day and night. Even had a surprise visit by a very large manatee while I was cleaning the boat one evening. Dock was plenty big enough for two boats, running water and a nice fish cleaning table. Spanish Harbor is very convenient to both the Atlantic and Gulf sides-Content Key is a must. Bahia Honda State Park, it's marina and world class tarpon fishing is a ten minute boat ride away. You can tie up at the marina and hang out all day for no charge. Looe Key is a thirty minute run from the dock. We hung out with the large resident Goliath grouper both times we went there. When we weren't on the boats, the four kayaks and pool kept the kids busy and happy. No Name Pub for dinner and Springers for lunch. Very convenient to grocery, ice, tackle/bait shops. Key West and Marathon are both about a half hour drive in It was a great rental and we will be back next year.

Great Property+Great Management=Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

When we saw that this property was under new management we were interested but cautious. We had rented this property from a previous owner and had many problems with the property and with the owner but loved the location, the privacy and the coziness of the place and so decided to give it another go. We are so glad we did! Not only had all the issues we'd had been addressed, but the list of additional improvements was long. The broken windows had been replaced, the rusting appliances too. The hot tub worked and the above ground pool had been replaced with a lovely in-ground pool. The kitchen cabinets, along with everything in them, were new as were the beds and bedding. Gone were the raggedy paper thin towels, replaced by plenty of big fluffy ones. The new dock is beautiful and the added kayak dock is a great idea. Our favorite thing was the simple weed control system that not only improves the view but the air quality as well! lol. The kayaks were new and there were plenty of jackets and paddles to go with them. Privacy is important to us and the level of privacy at this property is one of the many things we appreciate about it. We are already looking forward to returning next year. Michelle was so easy to work with and she and her husband work so very hard to keep the place looking great. They took equally great care of us. All of our were questions answered and all of our needs were met. I can wholeheartedly recommend a stay at the Island Sunrise Resort!

Wonderful facilities and excellent management

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six plus one infant stayed at this three acre + compound during New Year's week of 2013. We rented both houses. The Pink house is modern and the Yellow house is rustic is a throw back beach cabin motif. Both units was very well stocked with had everything we needed to have a great vacation week. Making reservation with Michelle, the owner, was a simple as sending a few emails with questions and then signing a contract with a credit card deposit. Upon arrival, we found the compund and the houses to be very clean and stocked with towels, dishes, televisions, cooking facilities, and everything else we needed during our stay. We rent a 6 bedroom 4,600 square foot beach house on an island off the coast of North Carolina, so we have an idea about what renters want in a rental unit, and these houses and this compound did meet our expectations. We had a minimal electrical issue at the yellow house on the first day which was addressed and repaired the same day as our notification. The new heated pool was fantastic and the long dock was great for fishing and lounging. We spent almost all our time in the compund and on the island, biking and swimming every day. There was really no reason to leave such a casual, slow pace island living experience that existed throughout the week. This is a great rental unit with lots of seclusion and the compound and the island has enough activities to keep everyone happy. A+ experience. Thank you Michelle.
