In the immediate area you’ll find several very good restaurants, a gym/wellness center, and Cudjoe Garden’s Marina, a full service marina. The only 18-hole miniature golf course in the keys is located five miles away. Bahia Honda State Park and the Dolphin Research Center, which offers dolphin encounters, are other area attractions.

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 Lower Florida Keys

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!

Great Property - Clean. Modern, and Fully Equipped

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Who needs more than a clean modern property in an excellent location? How about an extremely accommodating property manager who was happy to answer any question (note there were no "problems" she needed to address) and then processed the quickest turn on a security deposit I've ever seen?

Came here with another couple in early Feb, impressed by how pristine the unit was and the comfortable and tasteful furnishings. Kitchen, bathrooms, etc. has everything you need. We love staying at properties where the owner and staff take pride in what they do.

Highly recommend for a fabulous get-away - couples, friends, and the like. Close enough to Key West and Marathon, but quiet enough for a peaceful day - very tranquil here. Am definitely looking forward to returning when we can stay longer.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We took our two children to the Keys for the first time and this was the perfect spot. Melanie was easy to work with and flexible (especially when I made a scheduling error). The pie in the freezer was a great touch!! The house is well decorated and has all the necessities. We appreciated the roll out bed. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of extra bedding. The pool was warm and we enjoyed swimming in it. The location of this home is very convenient to Bahia Honda State park (a must see) and Key West. I recommend this home for a comfortable stay.

(I do recommend the group of homes owners give attention to dock repairs).

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review. As far as the dock, our board of directors is working with the county core of engineers to get our permits to fix the docks. In the keys we are not allowed to do anything on or near the water without the core of engineers reviewing the plans and making their suggestions (which are really mandates). It is very time consuming and the process takes quite a while.

Very nice

Melanie is a super property manager and the maintenance personnel was very responsive and friendly. The unit was super clean and looked brand new. We did have trouble with the dryer. It needed updating but other than that it was turn key, a great location and worked very well for our vacation. I highly recommend. One caution, the entrance is secluded, easy to miss but it's gated so very secure.

Owner's Response: The dryer broke while he was there for his 3 day stay so we gave him access to another unit to use the dryer, and we gave him extra sets of linens as they requested. I also gave him a partial refund for the dryer inconvenience. He was very demanding and yelled and screamed over the dryer. I also offered to give him a full refund if he wanted to find another place but he didn't. I honestly don't know what else I could have done for him.

Clean -comfortable-great location-pretty view at night or early morning

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place close to our son in Cudjoe Key. He got married on 8/5/16 on Looe Key Reef. The wedding party and guests all gathered in one location on boats and witnessed the tying of the knot and the literal "taking the plunge" after the ceremony. Your property was minutes from his place and close to the marinas where everyone met. We were able to spend time with preparations and spent much time with the grandkids. There wasn't the need to travel far. The house was spacious for our needs and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the pleasant surprise in the freezer. I appreciated the stocked supplies especially the honey which was needed for the oatmeal in the morning. The extras of the chairs , beach towels and linens made for easier packing. The best part was having enough hangars to hang clothes. Wedding attire was pressed and ready to go for the special day ahead of time. The pool was a refreshing place to go at the end of the hot days. Sitting at the dock- -RELAXING. We appreciate the effort you put into making a stay there comfortable and will let others know about your place
