Angel's on your pillow!!!
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!
Cynthia , the owner has put a lot of thought to details in this charming cottage. It has everything for a romantic get away. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We chose this because she accepted small dogs. We got so much more.
Me and my fiancé book this cottage for 2 nights.They have reasonable prices and no fee for dogs which is awesome.The cottage has everything what you need,king bed with very comfortable memory foam mattress.Cottage is upgraded with human car wash shower which we loved.The place has full privacy all around.Has a hut tab and small screen enclosure.Atmosphere is like a tropical forest,very cozy and romantic.Cottage is close to beaches ,restaurants and grocery.Cynthia is very amazing,lovely,down to earth person.We didn’t have a chance to meet Bruce,but he did great job with the cottage and all around.We definitely will be back .
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!
The little cottage was perfect. It was very clean and comfortable. The outdoor space was so lovely. The cottage was decorated so nice with beautiful touches. Cynthia even added a little basket of toys for our little dog. I will stay here every time I get back to the area.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Perfect , absolutely perfect romantic getaway destination.......you won't want to leave the property......what a gem! Moments away from Siesta Key.....park your car upon arriving won't need it again until you leave.....everything is close enough to walk or free shuttle is available . Cynthia & Bruce are your host and they go the extra mile to make sure your stay is perfect. If you live nearby or Sarasota is your destination Sunrise Holiday Retreat......is a treat!

Cynthia and Bruce have a beautiful little cottage gem retreat with anything you could need in your home away from home. Of course it offers features that "make" you want to start planning your return visit once you've stayed in the retreat. They have spared no expense; which you will enjoy through their dedication of layout using top of the line finishes. Their water features throughout the property are pretty amazing, leaving you revived and renewed. You will find a fully stocked kitchen, AWESOME shower, and jazzi spa on private deck. We even used the washer/ dryer they provide. We needed nothing but if we had we only would of needed to ask, and we know Cynthia would of made it happen if it was in her power. You can bring your dog and she will pet sit....now I don't know about you but that's pretty darn good. I'm telling you it's expensive to board!!! We didn't bring our baby this time but my goodness that's awesome! Cynthia is a wealth of information about the area, and a blessing to be around. She was a Godly Connection for sure. We enjoyed our stay and would encourage anyone of our friends to stay with Cynthia and Bruce at the Sunrise Holiday Retreat.
Great location! Perfect price. Clean and Comfy. Private. Cynthia was very friendly and checked in to make sure all was well.
What a great little find in a perfect location! Sunrise Holiday was absolutely perfect in every way, it was comfortable and cozy; it had everything you would need for a beach getaway including new beach chairs and umbrella. The outside yard areas were so nice to have exspecially how well fenced in they were so my small dogs could have fun but not escape! I totally appreciated the private laundry too. The kitchen had everything plus more! For a small studio I was glad to see a nice sized bathroom with an ironing station! The shower was awesome and I could not help but sing "Working at the Carwash" every time I used it! And NEVER ran out of hot water. Cynthia and Bruce have an outstanding little gem with Sunrise Holiday;they are also very lovely people who give you plenty privacy. I would definitely recommend Sunrise Holiday!!!! Bonus: bed is comfortable and sheets are sooo soft!
Really don't want to give this an excellent, outstanding, awesome review because then the entire world will know about this magical retreat..... when we want to book there will be NO VACANCY!!! We fell in love with Sunrise Holiday Retreat when we walked thru the red door. We were a little nervous about booking a studio but everything was thoughtfully planned, quite lovely and not cramped...everything top notch. Especially enjoyed the quietness away from the hustle and bustle of Siesta. When we wanted to explore, the proximity to restaurants, the Amish-Mennonite community, beach, etc. was within minutes Hubby enjoyed the spa while I enjoyed some R & R curled up with a novel. BTW, the retreat is well stocked with books and magazines.. Cynthia is a most friendly person and most gracious host...and a new friend!
All was awesome! Cynthia and her husband Bruce were wonderful and would answer any questions you had. Everything was close within walking distance! Siesta Beach has sand like flour!
Warm welcome from Sunrise Holiday Retreat Owner Cynthia Harr. The place is a beautiful spot for rest and relaxation. My wife and I loved the fully enclosed patio and dining area in the back as well as the mineral spa. It's in walking distance to all the fun Sarasota and Siesta Key has to offer. We will definitely be back in the future.
Our 1 week stay was perfect. We had our small dog that was very welcomed and enjoyed her freedom in the fenced yard. We enjoyed the hot tub, the very comfortable bed, the ambience created by the lights in the trees and the water feature. We road bikes in Siesta Key which was a little disappointing because the bike path is right next to the traffic. We did take our bikes to The Legacy Trail and enjoyed a 20 mile ride on a safe paved path. We loved the live music played at the many Siesta Key restaurants; especially Andre Collins at The Hub and RPM at the Boatyard Restaurant on the Bay. The beach is beautiful and the sunsets stunning. Thanks to Cynthia for all her attention to the details that make a rental feel like home!!!!!
