Highly recommend as a great place to stay!
Highly recommend as a great place to stay!
We looked at a lot of places before we settled on Drift Away and were not disappointed..it was actually even better than advertised as the pictures do not do it justice! Nicely furnished with comfortable seating and beds, good linens and clean and fresh as a whistle! Very comfortable for elderly parents and accommodated our old dog nicely in terms of stairs being easy to maneuver and convenient walking areas to do her business. Nice sound system and quality kitchen electronics..we didn't really want for anything other than our stay to not end! Appears well managed and we do plan on returning soon..

I have spent more than one visit and each time I have never been disappionted with this Condo. It is always clean and the furniture is very comfortable. When you sit out on the back patio the view is spectacular and @ sunrise and sunset this is where to be. Fishing is great,boat tours,riding bikes,dining and just walking around you can find just what your need for a restful and fun filled vacation. When I come to Cedar Key this is the only place I want to stay

What a view!
This is the most beautiful and well maintained condo we have ever rented on the Gulf Coast. The view is marvelous, especially watching the tidal changes and all the wild life. There are excellent restaurants within easy walking distance and wonderful little eclectic shops all over town. Will we come back again? . . . You bet!!

wonderful relaxing get-away

Very nice condo, extremely clean and well kept. Furniture and beds are really comfortable. The condo pretty much had anything we needed. Sitting on the porch, overlooking the water and watching the wildlife is so relaxing. it is an ideal place to decompress. Cedar Key is such a quaint, slow paced town. No rushing around, just take your time and enjoy the whole experience. Try the sunset cruise for a really nice boat ride. You can tell the owners take great pride in their condo. It is a really, really nice place.
