Overview

About the property

2 bed, 3 bath home, sleeps 6 (See my other adjacent homes 3020462 & 4441696)

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 107 on homeaway 4441696 and 3020462 (342851 on VRBO) in case you need more than one home. We are right on the water's 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 and sunsets can be seen from either balcony.

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 minutes 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

* Two master suites with king beds and full private baths

* a third full bathroom downstairs

* 3 flat screen HDTV’s with full U-Verse cable package

* Free WIFI

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

* walk in closet and luxury king beds and furniture

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, eating out and then have a quiet place to sleep and relax.

John Benckenstein purchased this house in 2017

Why John Benckenstein chose Cudjoe Key

We fell in love with the Keys and purchased these properties to make it that much easier to visit. Sunrise Beach Resort is the perfect blend of Keys life. It 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.

Great townhouse excellent open water views pool was a fantastic feature for happy hour.

  • 4 of 5

Having owned a rental in the keys for 12 years I know what it takes to maintain a property and John does it right! Everything was well stocked and in order. The only thing I could say is parking for people with a trailer can be tight however cudjoe gardens marina is very close for inexpensive storage. Would return!

This property had everything and more. The owner thought of everything to keep his guest safe and entertained. The layout of this house is perfect. The view of the ocean is breathtaking.
