About Melanie

I am the property manager. I live only about a mile from the property and you will have my cell phone number so I will be available to help with any issues that may arise.

Melanie purchased this house in 2012

Why Melanie chose Sunrise Beach Resort

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.

What makes this house unique

Our house has a chic cottage feeling to help you feel like you are at the beach. come relax in the hammock or come and enjoy all the water activity the keys have to offer.

we supply you with coffee, sugar, tea, and coffee pods for the keurig to get you started as well as ground coffee for the coffee pot. We have limited spices and other pantry items that you are free to use during your stay.

We supply paper towels, toilet paper and full bars of soaps to get you started. You will also find shampoo, hair dryers, and various other items in case you forget something at home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place was great for 2 couples. The condo was clean and very well supplied. The location was perfect for visiting Key West and Bahia Honda and for snorkeling on Looe Key. The information provided was comprehensive and very helpful.

Watch for the monster iguana around the pool!

We are looking forward to staying here again!

Our Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had two visits and will always come back. The condo is layed out perfectly with so many extras. Love the pool and quaintness of the beach. Morning coffee on the balcony, a dip in the pool followed by a nap in the hammock.

We love the fact that the condo/house is only 30 minutes from Key West and to Marathon. And surrounded by so many great restaurants.

We have a daughter with a life threatening disease that requires us to travel with her nurse. Melanie was so accommodating for her medical needs and the needs of her nurse. Peace and tranquility is just what the doctor ordered.

The condo was great but the dock that we had to use is in really bad shape and very dangerous.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The condo is new and in great shape and well stocked with the extras that we really didn't realize we needed. Good restaurants nearby. Great place to lobster from and relax.

Owner's Response: The dock damage this season is due to the larger boats, inexperienced boat captains, people hitting dock with boats and practice of accelerating to get on plane leaving marina from end of the dock. Not necessarily in that order. We are a federally protected Marine sanctuary and we have been working with the county Corps of Engineers to get a new dock approved. We have been working with them for 22 months now, is not a quick process when you live in protected areas . The new dock is on schedule for end of September, but October is likely more accurate.

Housing good, dock horrible!

  • 3 of 5

The housing was lovely. The grounds however were not. The wooden dock was unstable and frankly, dangerous. I feared for my safety and that of my grandchildren. it is shocking that a resort of this price has a dock in such ill repair during the height of the summer season! Very disappointing. There was not adequate space at the dock for all of the boats. The floating dock had no lighting at all and my son actually fell through and injured his leg and ankle while going to his boat in the early morning.

had to wash and dry all the sheets before leaving

and had to be checked out by 10 am

and had to pay a cleaning fee

made for unpleasant morning when trying to get out early.

Owner's Response: Wow, I am shocked. This is what they emailed me "Thank you Melanie, we had a great time, house was great, really enjoyed the stay!" First of all, only a side dock is in need of repair, not the main one and we have been working with the county core of engineers for a permit to fix the side one, being part. Of a protected reef area we are not allowed to just fix things like that . As for the dishes there's a dishwasher there and they are asked not to leave dishes in the sink. As for the sheets, we only ask if they start one load we do not ask that they do everything. We do this because we try to offer all of our people early check ins. Some people you just can't please

Convenient place to stay to enjoy the lower keys

  • 5 of 5

Property manager was fantastic and very responsive. The unit is nicely laid out. Beds are very comfortable. This is good place out of the hustle and bustle of Key West - so take that into consideration when you are planning a visit. If you want the hustle and bustle, save yourself the drive and stay closer.
