Sunrise Holiday Retreat is conveniently located near the Stickney Point Bridge to Siesta Key. Walkable, bikable, or a really quick car ride to Siesta Key Beach. Originally a mother-in-law quarters, the space is small but completely outfitted with everything you need. The very private outdoor areas also greatly expand the usable space. Charmingly decorated yet completely outfitted with all your day to day needs, it is like living in adult-sized, functional doll house. Cynthia is a great hostess and truly concerned that your stay is enjoyable. What a great value!


Apr 2019

This small cottage has so much to offer. Our stay was fantastic! The king bed is so sleep ever away from home. Amenities from great shower, comfortable bed, great kitchen, hot tub & private deck, private screened porch area, outside grill, washer/drier & VERY private for renters. My biggest pet piev is a property that is not clean....it was very clean!! Made me very happy. Plus very comfortable beach chairs & umbrella. Cynthia was great to work with and very friendly!! She lives onsite so anything that pops up, shes there in a minute! Seriously!!But respects your privacy.
We will definitely be back!!


Mar 2019

Pretty tropical bungalow with a French Quarter feel. Ample studio inside and 3 private relaxing areas outside. Bed was very comfortable, slept great! Red door entering garden is very welcoming. Lanais and garden are lit with little lights at night giving it a magical appearance. Very clean all over and the well-appointed kitchen has everything you need. Central to beach, restaurants, and all coastal activities. Can walk or ride bikes to most places and we did. Close to the “nicest beach in the US” (Siesta Key) as well as Turtle Beach, a naturally beautiful untouched “Old Florida” beach. No Red Tide issues all week, water was clear, sand like pure powder and beach was packed! Less than an hour to Tampa Airport, and a lovely ride. Would definitely book this place again.


Jan 2019

This place is very,very nice. I have stayed here twice while in town, And would not hesitate to stay again. You can not beat the price for the location you have. Literally a five minute walk to the beach. You also have every kind of amenities you would need.
A very nice courtyard,screened in gazebo, private patio with hot tub along with washer and dryer and the host Cynthia is one of the nicest and honest person you could ever meet. So remember, After you stay here, Do like I do, And give her a great referral as I know she greatly appreciates it.


Sep 2018

Everything was perfect from the time we arrived until we left! The cottage was cute as can be and had absolutely everything one could want. I love that we had beach chairs, shelling net, buckets, cooler and towels to take with us to the beach.....what more do you need!? We enjoyed a lovely stroll to the beach the first day we were there. We could have walked everyday, but decided to drive and explore other close-by beaches. Can we talk about sunsets.....Wow! They are amazing here! The sand is amazing. The water is crystal blue/aqua.....amazing!

Cynthia and her husband we at our disposal pretty much 24/7. Two of the nicest people you will ever met. I can honestly call them friends!

As for the cottage.....B E A U T I F U L!
Completely updated throughout. Everything you need to prepare a meal with and a wonderful patio to eat it on. We spent every night in the hot tub and between that and the big comfy bed; we slept amazing and woke up refreshed and ready for another day in Paradise!

Thank you, Cynthia & Bruce
You Will see us again!


Apr 2018

We had a great stay. Very private studio apartment in a neighborhood setting. As others have said, it has everything you need for a great time. Since we flew down, we were happy to have all the beach supplies at our disposal. Cynthia and Bruce are great.


Apr 2018

This sweet cottage was so lovely and comfortable. I took my mom on a little vacation. and she has some issues with walking. Everything was handicap friendly and Cynthia and her husband Bruce were so nice and friendly. They work hard to make the cottage beautiful and comfortable. The Siesta Key beaches were only 5 mins away and shopping and grocery stores were 5 mins away in the opposite direction so everything is conveniently located.

Home away from home!

Meeting the hosts and feeling right at home are the highlight of our trip! Everything was clean and sanitized and we had no concerns of safety at all during our stay. (Extra important due to the COVID issues) The cottage has plenty of space to be outside and had complete privacy, to use the screen cabana, hot tub and the front garden. Our dog felt welcomed and enjoyed her time with us as she sensed Cynthia’s love for dogs and all her special pet stations set up ahead of time! We went to three different dog parks and saved the dog beach in Venus for the last outing. My husband’s favorite part was the super comfy bed and the smart tv! Mine was the hospitality of the hostess and the deluxe shower they call the “human car wash”!!

The perfect winter retreat

Location was perfect. We have visited Sarasota for many years and this location was exactly where we wanted to be. It is just across the Stickney Point bridge to Siesta Key and about a mile to Turtle Beach and good restaurants. Only about 3 or so miles to Siesta Key Village. The property is very well maintained with all the required amenities plus some bonus extras like a hot tub, outside shower, complete fenced in privacy, a gas grill and beautiful tropical jungle type plants and trees. Palm trees with lighted trunks, lanai with lighted canopy and a private deck with lighted umbrella, table and chairs and chairs for lying in the sun. The owners, Cynthia and Bruce were extremely nice and willing to do whatever it takes to make our stay pleasant and comfortable.

A delightful vacation cottage

My husband and I spent five wonderful weeks at Sunrise Holiday Retreat in January of 2019.It is a pretty place, nicely landscaped with palm trees and flowers and outdoor seating to enjoy the vegetation and songbirds. The weather was warm and we were able to enjoy the very private deck with the spa and the lanai. The cottage is small but so well designed that we did not feel crowded. The kitchen is well equipped (microwave, dishwasher, full fridge) and functional. The GE microwave/convection oven was particularly helpful for making meals quickly. The king size bed is comfortable.The shower system with rain, handheld and jets options, temperature control with good pressure and plenty of warm water is delightful.Cynthia and Bruce were the most attentive, responsive and helpful hosts we have ever encountered (we have rented quite a few places). The location was perfect and we were able to easily access everything that Sarasota has to offer from the nearby Siesta Key beaches, to the parks and the downtown area. We are looking forward to our next visit!
