About Lauren Chalenski
I love old fashioned direct communication with my guests. At Sunrise Cottage, we're serious about your relaxation. We keep things simple so you can dream about your beach vacation, not complicated paperwork. You'll receive complete information about Sunrise so you'll know what to expect when you arrive. We answer all questions promptly and treat you the way we would want to be treated. We extend a special welcome to our wonderful overseas guests - we promise to do everything we can to make you happy when you come so far to visit our beautiful island. Our goal is for all our guests is to remember Sunrise Cottage as their home away from home on Anna Maria Island.
Lauren Chalenski purchased this House in 2009
Why Lauren Chalenski chose Holmes Beach
We purchased Sunrise Cottage because of the feeling you get driving across the island/mainland bridge. It’s the beginning of the rainbow. Sunrise cottage is the pot of gold awaiting you.
What makes this House unique
Staying in a cottage provides privacy while offering guests an opportunity to be part of a small community of friendly people who truly value their quality of life on the island. From the cottage guests can walk across the street to the beach to catch a spectacular sunset or walk one block in the other direction to peruse the many shops or enjoy the restaurants. Two guests once left in the morning to walk to breakfast and didn’t return until late afternoon because they strolled from shop to shop, enjoying wares and conversation with shop owners. It's nice to attain at least a temporary respite from fast food joints, high rises, and traffic - at Sunrise Cottage it doesn't take long to convert to 'island time'.

A wonderfully relaxing experience
The property was exactly what we were hoping for: private, comfortable, elegant, well-equipped kitchen with everything needed to cook, quality linens and lovely decorating touches.... we started relaxing as soon as we arrived. The pool was wonderful and the design of the yard makes it totally private. A small issue was addressed immediately and efficiently by Lauren. The location was perfect: less than 300 steps from an uncrowded beach, and within walking distance of the best Italian Market/Deli, Vinny's Italian Market and several other great little restaurants. The beach cart was great to take the comfortable beach chairs and towels to the beach. We were recommended many excellent restaurants. All in all, a wonderful experience! We are already looking at our next dates to come back! Thank you Lauren for sharing your lovely home! Happy New Year!!!
Wonderful stay with our 6 month old!
We had a wonderful time staying here for our first family vacation with our 6 month old. The pool was perfect for him. During his nap time we enjoyed walks on the beach with our stroller, which was just a short walk away. Beautiful, clean home, Lauren was very available and helpful. Great oasis to relax and get away from snow and everyday busyness.
The location of the property was great
We enjoyed everything about this cottage Very convenient to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Also swimming in the heated pool was awesome
Fall Break Getaway
We had the best time on our trip and enjoyed staying at this address! It was perfect for our family and we made a lot of great memories :)
I highly recommend staying here!
OUR PRIVATE VACATION
We were there to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the cottage. It was exactly as described. Lauren was wonderful to work with and very welcoming and accommodating. Our favorite meals were those that we ate around the table in the pool. We also were privileged to meet Lauren and enjoyed chatting by the pool with her. We will most certainly be returning.
Can’t wait to return to AMI
This property was perfect for our family of 4. The house is clean, super close to the beach and Lauren provides so much that is useful to have on hand... laundry on site, private pool, beach chairs, beach towels, a wagon, etc! We can’t wait to get back to AMI- and we highly recommend this location and property!
This cottage is so centrally located that it is within 250 yards of the Gulf of Mexico, restaurants, shopping, art galleries and a gym, yet the cottage itself is a private tropical oasis nested inside Florida's finest flora.
