Cedar Key apartment description

Mr. Grady left Cedar Key to pursue a career, when he returned, he picked out THIS home for the rest of his lifetime. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, this is the downstairs of the family home, fully furnished for short or long stays. Completely furnished, you too can enjoy the stunning views that the Cedar Key native picked out for himself and his family.

Facing north/northeast, this home has AMAZING sunrise views from the porch, the front yard and the dock. In keeping with the idea that the beauty was to be viewed, the dock has two Andironak chairs to enjoy the natural beauty and the varied wild life that this home has to offer. Start your day sipping coffee and enjoying the sunrise, then 'retire' to the porch for a well shaded bird watching perch while you contemplate whether it is time AND tide to go fishing. At evening, come inside to enjoy the fireplace or, if you must, check your email and watch TV.

Fully equipped for a weekend or monthly stay, there is a full size refrigerator, a two burner hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, linens, in short, all you need to make your stay in Cedar Key, the Gem of the Nature Coast, a GREAT one.

We have wireless internet, cable TV, books, movies, and even a small desk to work on if the weather keeps you in, but you will be outdoors enjoying the beauty of Cedar Key, either walking, bicycle riding, or BOATING. The perfect place for kayakers, there is a launch area right out side the porch, just to the side of the dock. Cedar Key has stunning tidal flats, with the natural wild life that inhabits estuaries including over 150 species of bird. Want to get your line wet? This is THE place for redfish.

Don't care to catch your own? We are only 1.5 miles from the FINEST restaurants in Florida. From linen tablecloths to scratched wood, we offer all the delights you can imagine, from Artichokes Atsena Otie at the Island Hotel, to Grouper Savannah at the Island Room to all you can eat at the Seabreeze, mullet and eggs at Annie's Cafe, crab quiche at Kona Joe's to.... well you get the idea, eating is a pleasure in Cedar Key. Let's not forget our CLAMS. As a leading producer of farm raised clams, Cedar Key hold the unique honor of the BEST clams in the US. Three time World Champion Tony's Clam Chowder can be sampled FRESH, or bought and shipped to your home after your visit. Want to try your hand at creating your own award winning recipes? Robinson's Seafood, 9 miles away in Rosewood, or Southern Cross, at #3 bridge both offer retail seafood. Also check at D & W bait shop for stone crab claws fresh from the boat, or stop for your ALL your tackle and bait needs and harvest your own.

There is pier fishing on Dock Street, with Cedar Key's new fishing pier, or bring your boat and enjoy the NEW outside boat ramp. Want a fishing guide? Dock Street has them, or just boat tours. Bring a boat or rent one here, we have several boat rental businesses, check out for the full list.

The house can easily sleep 4 couples with two bedrooms, and for additional sleeping a futon and a trundle bed in the living room. We have one bath, with shower. Plenty of linens so you need not do laundry, but if you must, there is a washer and dryer in the unit.

Want to bring your furry friends? We WELCOME pets. There is no extra fee for pets,; we enjoy having them. We do have a fenced side yard so they too can relax. Many businesses in Cedar Key are dog friendly, including Brian's Big Deck and Raw Bar, the outside deck at Pickled Pelican and Cedar Key's newest restaurant, The Gathering Place. Annie's Cafe and Kona Joe's both have outside dining decks for our four legged friends. Cedar key City Park is dog friendly, we do ask that you keep them on a leash and please pick up after them.

Come for a short say, come for a lifetime, come ENJOY the best of Cedar Key.

              About: This is now our family getaway. There are three siblings, our spouses, our families that share the upstairs home, we are offering our 'slice of heaven' to you, so you too can step back in time to when life was less complicated

              Why Cedar Key:
              We inherited the property from our parents; they spent their retirement years here. Having both grown up in Cedar Key, they came back as soon as jobs, careers and child raising allowed them. They now are gone, so we share the property between our families and get to Cedar Key as often as we can.
