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!

Delightful

Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer. Just as advertised. Great view, fun kayaking. Will come back to stay longer hopefully!

A Gem on Sarasota Bay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to share Thanksgiving with our family.

Cozy and comfortable with a real kitchen dining area with all that we needed, including a patio with a gas grill right on the water. This is a great place for friends and family to gather with wonderful views from the balcony overlooking Sarasota Bay.

If you value the natural beauty of of Florida including kayaking in a wildlife refuge this is a place you should consider. While The southwest coast of Florida continues to rapidly grow this is truly a refuge. Just paddle 20 minutes south to find Florida paradise on a deserted Casey Key beach.

Hope we can come again,

Barry, Lois and Laura

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.
