John and Donna Benckenstein

We are married and the kids are all out of the house so we have the time to spend on vacations like our Cudjoe Key getaway house. We enjoy being on the water, touring Key West and then have a quiet place to sleep and relax.

What makes this House unique

Sunrise Beach is a wonderful and 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 at Looe Key or American Shoals. Three of my top five favorite restaurants anywhere in the keys are less than 5 miles away. Nearby Key West (17 miles) is always a fun trip for a wide variety of food and entertainment. You will be staying in one of eleven stilt homes in this secluded gated community with Atlantic side dock space for your boat up to 25 feet in length. Plenty of Kayaks, paddleboards, snorkel equipment, bicycles, fishing gear and loungers by pool await you.


This luxurious home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is part of Sunrise Beach Resort, an exclusive gated community built in 2007 with 11 total homes. I rent adjacent units 111, 109 and 107, which are similarly configured and furnished, with the primary difference being closeness to the bay, docks and pool. Unit 111 is right on the water with amazing unobstructed views of bay. Breathtaking southwest views of the blue-green ocean can be seen from the bedrooms and balconies off of each bedroom. Lounge in your private hammock or enjoy the gorgeous tropical landscaping, sun and cool breezes on one of two balconies, comfortable seating under home, on dock, under TIKI hut or poolside.
