About Lauren Chalenski

At Sunrise Cottage, we're serious about your relaxation. We keep things simple so you can dream about your beach vacation, not complicated paperwork. You'll receive complete information about Sunrise so you'll know what to expect when you arrive. We answer all questions promptly and treat you the way we would want to be treated. We extend a special welcome to our wonderful overseas guests - we promise to do everything we can to make you happy when you come so far to visit our beautiful island. Our goal is for all our guests is to remember Sunrise Cottage as their home away from home on Anna Maria Island.

Lauren Chalenski purchased this house in 2009

Why Lauren Chalenski chose Holmes Beach

We purchased Sunrise Cottage because of the feeling you get driving across the island/mainland bridge. It’s the beginning of the rainbow. Sunrise cottage is the pot of gold awaiting you.

What makes this house unique

Staying in a cottage provides privacy while offering guests an opportunity to be part of a small community of friendly people who truly value their quality of life on the island. From the cottage guests can walk across the street to the beach to catch a spectacular sunset or walk one block in the other direction to peruse the many shops or enjoy the restaurants. Two guests once left in the morning to walk to breakfast and didn’t return until late afternoon because they strolled from shop to shop, enjoying wares and conversation with shop owners. It's nice to attain at least a temporary respite from fast food joints, high rises, and traffic - at Sunrise Cottage it doesn't take long to convert to 'island time'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I don't think there is anything else that you could do to your cottage to make it any better I wouldn't think of staying at another cottage on the island.

We loved this cottage! It is located near Shenanigans and within walking distance to stores. It is also closer to the beginning of the island, which to us was quieter, and more private. We would def recommend this place if you don’t need a huge place!!! It is def well worth it! The remotes were a little confusing but the owner responds immediately if you have any questions or concerns.

perfect for two couples

  • 5 of 5

Good location. Short walk to beach and dining. Furnishings in excellent condition. Kitchen well stocked. although we did not cook much. Pool was clean and had good temperature. Tvs were difficult to figure out. Required a couple calls to Lauren. Very small ants appeared from time to time and had to be sprayed. Overall a very good property.

Our first "Sisters" week together

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for my sister and me. We had a super time and loved the comfort and ease here. We swam in the pool, walked to the beach, walked to nearby restaurants, and took the trolley a couple of times. Lauren was helpful when we needed some advice. The pictures of the property show what you will have. Everything is really good quality. We would like to come again!

Relaxing and learning in Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything that we needed and stores were close when we wanted to buy groceries, fish, wine, and varied sundries. The close proximity to the beach was a plus and the quiet pool setting was delightful. We found this location to be ideal for further exploration of southern Florida.

Very nice. Just across street from beach with great walking distance to beach, restaurants and stores.

However. noticed that some additional cleaning of vents, ceiling fans and above stove would be of benefit. Also much of lighting fixtures throughout the home poor for illumination.

Car: recommended

This cottage is so centrally located that it is within 250 yards of the Gulf of Mexico, restaurants, shopping, art galleries and a gym, yet the cottage itself is a private tropical oasis nested inside Florida's finest flora.
