use of kayaks, bikes, common room with games, books, table/chairs, short walk/swim/kayak to homeowner park beach and swimming pier; shared dock at our manatee filled canal, great for swimming, outside shower, outside toilet/changing room on the dock,
We live down the street and are here for assistance when needed. Whether it is for bikes or kayaks, restaurant information, etc. We enjoy visiting with our guests, going to dinner, kayaking together, walking the dogs together. It is up to our guests how much interaction they would like. It is our guests' vacation. Our properties share common spaces: the manatee canal dock, the bike room & the kayak dock and yard.
Here at mile marker 101.4, bay side, we are walking distance to grocery, outdoor fruit/veggie stand, stores and a few restaurants. We are at a wider part of the island so we are in a quiet neighborhood with one of the best beaches in the Keys as a homeowner park! It is a mix of manufactured homes, two story cement homes on 100 x45 ft & 100 X 90 ft lots; We prefer the manufactured homes for the real Keys living- most of the time is outside in our lovely weather and breezes!
We have bikes for your use- most everything is within 2 miles of our property. We have two taxi service companies. If you want to spend your time in the water, kayaking to the Everglades, (15 min. kayak) going snorkeling at Pennecamp Coral Reef State Park, and don't mind walking & biking, then you can take the Keys Shuttle to/from the airport.
Most guests like having the convenience of a car for longer excursions. Do not expect to use buses for seeing all the Keys- you need a car.
The location was excellent! The proximity to the canal and beaches was good. The provision of kayaks and bicycles enabled us to really explore the neighbourhood. The Sun Bay-Getaway was clean and well maintained. While limited in size, it offered everything two people needed. There are dozens of nearby restaurants and bars, But if you plan to cook your own meals, don't think about doing anything too elaborate as there is only a microwave and toaster oven in the flat and a barbeque grill in the small garden/sitting area just outside the front door. We recommend this facility as a terrific place to get away from the hectic pace of everyday life and just kick back.
The location of Sun Bay-Getaway couldn't be any more convenient. Everything you may need can be found a short, 5 min drive from the house. On top of that, the kayak available for use was an absolute fun time in the pristine bay! A 20 minute kayak to manatee bay was a wonderful and very relaxing experience. There's also a very quiet labyrinth of mangroves that was a pleasure to explore. The wildlife and serenity is what made this a perfect time-away-from-work getaway. Thank you, Chanoch for being so generous with your time and property.
We had a great vacation in the best sun bay-getaway in Key Largo and a good time there.
The beach wasn´t as beautiful as described, but this may come from our former vacation which we spend in Mexico.
Thank you for the few days and the support during our stay.
Sun Bay Haven is a basic and small trailer accommodation, but Giana and Chanoch made comfortable and fun place to stay :) We had an issue about hot water, but they fixed it quickly. We swam with a manatee in the canal which is located in the back of the accommodation. Lovely place. Thank you for the great hospitality, Giana and Chanoch!
Hi! We have spent two days in key largo. It has been our first experience with AirB&B and it has been really good.
We couldn't believe to our eyes when we arrived in key largo sun bay. The location where the house is, Is really in a slice of paradise. The house is independent with every comfort. The bed was good, wifi available.
Chanoch has been really kindly with us, thanks!!
We are happy for our new experience!
We really enjoyed our stay at Chanoch . We felt right at home from the first moment. We had a great time in the kayak and the evening out at the canale. The place is clean and nice.The only thing that was dissapointing was the we did not see any manatees. :-(
Hope that we can return another time.
Chanoch and Giana are remarkable hosts. We had a great stay there. Besides provinding us with a nice and clean place for the nights, they shared all their equipment that let us explore the area at land and sea. Most importantly, they introduced us to the people and animals that surrounded us in this little Paradise. I fully recommend staying with them.
We had a great time staying here! Chanoch and Giana were great hosts. They made themselves very available both for the initial meetup and for any questions, and were able to suggest things to do/places to eat in the area which would have taken us much longer to figure out. They were also great company - we had lots in common and enjoyed socializing. The place was cozy and spotless, and we enjoyed watching the pelicans cruise the canal for their evening dinner, and seeing a manatee and her calf swim by. I wish we'd used the bikes - our slothfulness. We did use the kayak, which was nice to have.
We really enjoyed our stay. Chanoch and Gianna were very accommodating and friendly. Would recommend staying with them! :)
What a wonderful place to stay. I really enjoyed my time here. Perfectly located right in the middle of all of Key Largo's attractions and activities, it is still nestled on a quiet street. The bikes are a really fun way to get around, and if you stay you owe it to yourself to take a kayak out to see the mangrove forest at the Everglades. The apartment is not large, but for the price it beats any of the disappointing hotels in the area. It's got everything you could need and it was very clean and convenient. Plus you have your neighbors, the Manatees! Chanoch was always there to help if I needed something and was the perfect host. She even helped me out a couple of times when I needed it. I know that if I come back I will stay at one of her places. Highly recommended!!
