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!

Great view and location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the apartment. Location was perfect with a great view and a 10 min walk to the Turtle beach. This end of Siesta key is very peaceful. The apartment had everything we needed for a great stay. We would love to come back for another stay at the same place.

Great value

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful place. It's away from the busy village, however free transportation is a block away. We had a great time. The owner has taken the time to make sure everything you may need is here for you to use.

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment with lovely view of the bay. Fish off the dock, lounge on the patio while grilling dinner. Ten minute walk to Turtle Beach, and three restaurants . Kayak around the islands with kayaks provided. This is the quite end of Siesta Key, but the trolly bus runs every 30 minuets to Siesta Village. Enjoyed our stay-will be back!

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Great location, easy walk to beautiful Turtle Beach. My husband and kids loved taking the kayaks out to explore, fishing off the dock, and sitting on the deck. The house was stocked with everything we needed and neighbors were very friendly. Owner was also kind enough to mail back an item left behind. We would definitely stay here again. We would highly recommend eating at Max’s Table as well!
