Welcome to our Cedar Key Get Away!

Whether you're looking for a romantic escape, a weekend get together with friends or a memorable family vacation, Cedar Key is the right destination for you.

You can bring the kids or leave them at home. You can lounge at the beach, walk the dock or fish from the pier. Take a tour of the surrounding islands or rent a kayak. Just remember Cedar Key is the place to stay!

The 'Sea Shells Cottage' in secluded Cedar Key, Florida. From the private balcony overlooking historic First Street and the beautiful waters of The Gulf of Mexico you'll not only see kayaks, canoes and recreational boaters but also commercial clammers and fisherman. Historic 'Atsena Otie' Island, once home to the Village of Cedar Key and Famous Dock Street are all included in the panoramic view from this elevated location.

The cottage is split into an upper and lower unit that can be rented separately or together. Escape to the other Florida Keys, a short drive from Gainesville area airport or about 3 hrs by car from Orlando. Covered parking available.

Our two story home located in the heart of Cedar Key is fully equipped and just waiting for YOUR visit. Uniquely designed for maximum privacy, Sea Shell Cottage is designed to allow some space between you and your guests. The cottage features a single bedroom and full kitchen on the bottom floor with an upstairs bedroom and efficiency kitchen upstairs.

Both the upper and lower level features a 19 x 7 balcony accessible from the living room, charming decor, TV and VCR. Plenty of closet space for your weekend or month stay, the unit is the perfect downtown location for your Cedar Key adventure.

The upper level has a one bedroom/one bath with a 19 x 7 balcony overlooking the Gulf waters to the south, whimsical decor in the living/kitchen area, a queen sleeper sofa, TV, VCR a refrigerator and all the electrical appliances to create a quick meal or full course dinner. The upstairs level also features a full bath and a queen bed in the separate bedroom.

Separate, private entrances to the upper and lower levels make this home a lovely stay for one to four couples. Accessible via either the outside staircase, or by the shareable interior staircase, the cottage affords easy privacy, or open the interior lockable doors and open this home up to you larger crowd.

Plenty of under house parking, with room enough for 2 cars and drive through access. Just two blocks to the Cedar Key Marina with three interior launch ramps and one exterior ramp for larger boats, this could be YOUR base for that weekend of fishing you have been promising yourselves.

Looking for that quiet place to birdwatch? Sea Shell Cottage is THE place. Located in the Cedar Key National Wildlife Refuge, there are over 250 documented species of birds, including ospreys, ibis, herons, brown pelicans, white pelicans, frigate birds, and even, yes, bald eagles.

Also available as a one bedroom unit, please call or contact us to accommodate YOUR needs. We want to share our dream get away with you, in fact we may just be 'decompressing and recharging' upstairs while you are in the downstairs unit.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: We look forward to time spent in Cedar Key and find it a great way to completely decompress and recharge our batteries! The fishing pier, public beach, shopping, post office and store are all within a block of the cottage. Boat rentals are available for exploring the uninhabited islands surrounding Cedar Key, the photo is of Seahorse Key taken during Christmas 2009.

Why Cedar Key:
Cedar is our secret getaway on the Florida Gulf Coast. Secluded, uncrowded, Cedar Key is a small resort town right on the water with a rich history. The public beach, fishing pier and marina are within walking distance as is the historic downtown. The cottage is surrounded by nature preserves that you will not be able to experience anywhere else. We love it here and hope you do too!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is located in the center of Cedar Key and within a stone's throw to everything. You can get up early and fish at the public pier, rent a boat or a golf cart to explore the island or the nature preserves that surround Cedar Key. Spend the day at the public beach or shopping in the town's historic district. Gainesville is a short drive away as is the University of Florida and can make for an interesting day trip from the cottage.
