  • The Makings of a Great Vacation

    "Loved every minute of out stay! House was a great place with great views of the water and the private dock was perfect for fishing or just sitting. We saw every kind of bird, including a flamingo, had our own alligator to observe and watched racoons fish. The furniture was very comfortable as were the beds. Only issue was the water in the kitchen and second bath...it smelled and tasted terrible. In the master bath it was fine. Guess place either has two seperate systems, or filtration system was not working properly. Reported that and was assured it would be looked at. Only downside and it was not a biggy. We will return. Cedar Key is funky great, fishing is wonderful."

  • Perfection in Cedar Key!

    "We have just returned from a weeklong stay at Family Tides. NEVER have I relaxed so much in such beautiful surroundings. It seems as if the Carters designed this statuesque three story home to respect the surroundings without competing with them in the least. From various balconies guests drink in the beauty of Cedar Key, its waterways and wildlife, its scrub oaks and native palms without once ruffling a single feather or deep- green bush. Ospreys soar gracefully as they work to build their massive nests stage front high in pines very near the house. In the distance beautiful sunrises light the morning activity of gulls and sand birds, of low tides with exposed sandbars. Everyday, all day is a cool breeze suggesting breathing deeply to simply let your soul catch up. The home clearly is the most beautiful in all of Cedar Key. We invited our children and grandchildren over for the weekend and loved paddle boarding and kayaking right from the nearby dock. Beds and privacy, bathrooms and a large verandah for visiting and blowing bubbles made this house perfection as a rental. Everything is spotlessly clean with just the right amount of art and furnishings to compliment all God had done outside. Beautiful dark wood floors intersect wide and cool tile floors then mix with the owner’s choices of cool colors from the sea. My favorite room was a guest room bath cleverly mixing yellow and white tiles with complimentary yellow pegs to hold the hotel quality towels. Also perfectly chosen fish art again reiterated the touches of yellows. The bedrooms are huge as are the baths. Clearly understanding guests love for a pet, the Carters welcomed our Sheltie “Rebel” and he loved it all too. The kitchen worked like a charm, but remained closed often enough to sample great restaurants in Cedar Key, whose pace is worthy of a hammock easily swaying in a breeze. The new restaurant Carlin’s was our favorite bar none! This was a vacation we will never forget, and should the Carters still be renting again, we will be back…OFTEN!"

  • Perfect place to enjoy Cedar Key

    "We found Cedar Key by searching for gulf towns that are dog friendly, and vrbo.com's search engine made finding Nestled In Time easy! The cottage is clean, quiet, we'll stocked, and perfectly located on CK--not too close to the touristy strip, but still within walking distance. The little market a few blocks away had everything to whip up breakfast, the island had great restaurants, our old dog was welcomed everywhere, it was wonderful. I think his favorite part was swimming out on Atsena Otie Key and chasing the lizards in the garden :) Thank you!"

  • Perfect vacation place.

    "We rented the Creamsicle Cottage for the month of July, 2014. We just loved it. We especially liked that the house was built all on ground level, no stairs! There was no carpet in the house, so it was easy to keep clean. Everything that we needed for the month was in the house except for groceries, of course. The Market, Cedar Key's grocery store, was only a 2 block walk. Dock Street, where most of the restaurants and entertainment were, was another 2 blocks. We walked sometimes and rented a golf cart sometimes. The living area of the cottage was one big open room, so if you were in the kitchen you were still a part of what was going on in the living room and could see the tv too. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer!"
