Cedar Key bungalow description
Daddy's Place is the perfect cottage for your weekend or week of fishing. Located on State Road 24, you can be ANY where in Cedar Key in under ten minutes. Built by a bachelor with a bachelor's sense of space, the living room and kitchen are one great room, opening onto a small screen porch overlooking the lovely shaded back yard.
The two bedrooms each have their own small but adequate full bath. Each bedroom also has a door to access the open porch.
The great room has seating for four in very comfortable chairs and a sofa. A 32 inch flat screen TV and DVD player are installed for your movie viewing pleasure.
The TV is currently not hooked up for cable, but if you give us enough notice, we are glad to arrange for it to be hooked up.
There is no landline telephone in the place, but we've always gotten good reception with our cell phones. Please check with your provider as to how to make your phone a hot spot and you can stay in touch with email if you wish, or use the excuse we always do, 'I'm sorry the reception was too bad' and really enjoy your break.
We cater to the longer stays with a full size washer and dryer in the laundry/linen closet and plenty of closet space in each bedroom. We allow a small dog in the house, larger dogs are welcome to stay in the completely fenced yard. There is a carport to shade your truck or boat during your stay with us.
We ask that you be conservative with the resources of our island paradise. With that in mind we have a recycle bin for all glass, paper and metal, and ask you to 'punch up' the thermostat while you are out all day.
Cedar Key is a quiet village sixty miles west southwest of Gainesville and 24 miles west of US 19/98. We are thirty minutes from Chiefland, with its golf course, Winn Dixie and Walmart. Closer to Cedar key we have a Dollar General store, just nine miles away in Rosewood. In town we have The Market, our local grocery store, which has all the necessities of life, and a couple of luxuries you won't find any where else.
Seafood can be purchased at numerous spots on the island, including Southern Cross, Beckham's Seafood, The Market, or for a full seafood house, Robinson's Seafood nine miles out in Rosewood. Don't want to cook but still want a delicious seafood dinner? Numerous restaurants are here for you, including Annie's Cafe, Blue Desert Cafe, Tony's Seafood, Steamer's, Brian's Big Deck, the Pickled Pelican, the Seabreeze, Kona Joe's Ken's Keyside Diner, or Robinson's Seafood serves lunch and dinner. For a more elegant dinner, The Island Hotel or the Island Room at Cedar Cove serve nightly.
Night time entertainment is mainly a weekend event in Cedar Key. Check online at Cedar Key News or Cedar Key Beacon for schedules.
But you came to Cedar Key to go fishing! So let us help you find a guide, or the bait shop-only 2 blocks away, or our local dry storage is only one block. We can introduce you to local guides or show you the chart section at our local hardware store. Cedar Key is renown for redfish, trout and whiting, in shore fishing at its best. Want to go for larger fish? Our water is very shallow, we refer to it as 'a mile a foot', so grouper fishing means going out 20-25 miles. During the summer months Spanish mackerel, tarpon, king mackerel and triple tail can be caught closer in, on Seahorse Reef.
We suggest no more than two couples in Daddy's Place. If you need more room or larger accommodations, please check out All My Rental Listings for more homes. We can also help arrange meeting rooms, catering, or conference facilities. Let us help you learn to relax.

Memorial Day Fishing Trip With 2 Friends
Memorial Day Fishing Trip With 2 Friends
I have fished out of Cedar Key for the past 4 years or so. We typical meet up at my home about 1 1/2 hours away and drive over in the wee hours of the early morning, dodging deer the entire way while towing a big boat. By noon while out on the water, we are usually exhausted, dreading the drive home that evening. I happen to come across the VRBO website and was amazed to find homes on Cedar Key for nightly and or weekly rental! While searching the listings I came across Daddy's Place, and it sounded like a perfect place to rest up and get an early start for a day of fishing. I was pleasantly suprised to find the house was recently completely remodeled inside, and had all of the comforts of home! I had no trouble parking my boat in the nice huge shaded yard. Located just a few houses up the street from the Cedar Key Marina, made an easy walk to load up on bait for the trip. Daddy's Place had a fully equpped kitchen with all utensils, washer and dryer, all towels with bed linens. There is a very nice screened porch in the rear with seating. I would highly recommend Daddy's Place to anyone planning a Cedar Key Gulf fishing trip and would like to rest up before and after hitting the water or a nice place to relax and enjoy Cedar Key!

We are so happy you enjoyed the house, and I agree the back yard is superb for the late afternoon "break".

The house is designed for a fishing adventure, or just a quiet weekend, so we love it when you can enjoy it as much as we do.

Cute little cottage with something you don't find in Cedar Key - privacy. The large, shaded yard was perfect for relaxing. It's also a good place to park our boat off the road and under a roof. It's nice to escape the hectic city life and drop back in time.
