Overview

About the property

2 bdrm with water views

Sunrise Bay is a 2BR, 1.5 bath, second floor apartment, in a 4-plex apartment property. It faces east and is on the water of Little Sarasota Bay. The apartment has a queen size bed in the master bedroom, and two twin, or single beds in the second bedroom. We have a fold-out couch in the living room that sleeps another 1-2 persons.

Our second floor apartment has its own private deck with table and chairs that looks out over the water. The backyard is a paved patio with our own dock for your use. There is a picnic table, chairs, and gas grill on the patio. We also have 1 two-person kayak, 1 one-person kayak, 2 cruiser bikes and 1 tandem that is shared use with another apartment.

Right behind our apartment is the water of the bay. If you like nature, you will like this place. One wouldn't believe the wildlife that is right close, especially numerous jumping fish of several kinds, wading birds, pelicans, ibis, and spoonbill galore. Manatee, too. If you spend anytime at all out back, or have the patio doors open, you'll often see dolphins! They are a daily occurrence right off of our dock, about 50 feet out. Many times you will hear them exhale loudly, and then you will know to look out to the water.

There are also fruit trees on the property. Palm, orange, mango, and fig, and when they are in season, you can help yourself to their fruit and just grab them off the trees!

If you like fishing, it's pretty good off of our dock. Skate and catfish are mostly caught. Live shrimp make the best local bait and live shrimp are sold at the bait shop up the road. We have 2 fishing rods for your use.

And yes, there is a very nice sand beach right near by for you to swim, sun, or beach comb. This would be Siesta Key's 'Turtle Beach' which is across the road and about 300 yards north. Fine dining nearby and a decent grocery store 2.5 miles north so you don't have to leave the Key unless you want to.

There are beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, beach toys, skim board and such for your enjoyment. So, no need to lug them with you or take the time and money to buy those items for a short time use.

Off street parking is included, coin operated laundry machine, and plenty of heat and air con. The whole apartment, appliances, linens, furniture, etc. are in good condition with professional cleaning between guests. Bring your suntan lotion. Relax or stay in shape as you desire.

Cleaning already included in our nightly rate!

Quiet and Relaxing Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us to spend our 30th wedding anniversary. It's located away from the main beach area of Siesta Key, so we could avoid the busy area. We did go up there one day just to check it out though. Turtle Beach is a great place to have beach time. Make sure you have flip flops or some type of footwear as the sand gets very hot. Lots of shells and aquatic life to view. Plenty of fish, kayakers and boaters in the bay at the house. We did not use the kayaks as we are not that experienced and were not comfortable launching from the dock. We are already talking about staying there again. Turtle Beach Grill is a great place to have lunch and City Pizza is great pizza. We did not eat at Ophelia's next door, but maybe next time.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this place. Both the house and Siesta Key! The house has anything you could ever need for your stay here and is extremely well kept, charmingly decorated and very clean. Thank you so much for always making our trip to Siesta so great! Can't wait til we return again!

Quiet & Relaxing & Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Property was as advertised. Clean, roomy, & great views! The mullet were jumping all the time. We watched an osprey family feed their baby every day as their nest was on the channel marker. Dad Osprey was an expert fish catcher. Rode bikes to Turtle Beach which was much less crowded than Siesta Key beach. Both were beautiful! (Hubby fixed the bike that was put together backwards with the help of some nice folks at the boat yard that had some tools!) Everyone was super nice & friendly! We liked that this property was away from the noise and crowds closer to main part of Siesta Key. Restaurant next door was no problem b/c it closes at 10pm. Would stay here again! Thanks for a great get away!

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice and the view from the deck was wonderful. My wife was very happy with the location and with the beach so close it was all that we could ask for. Will be back again!
