"My husband and I were looking for a place to relax and we found it at the Suwannee River Hideaway. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed. Our favorite place was the porch. It was so peaceful we took several naps on the porch. We can't wait to return!!"

"This was a wonderful house for our large family! We had plenty of space for everyone to spread out, and for the children to run around outside. The home is very charming, and the decor was very quirky and comfortable. It was a fantastic deal for 7 people, and we appreciated the fully stocked kitchen as well as little details like spare toiletries and coffee/tea in case you forgot some! We would definitely stay here again."

"As a single mom wrapping up a lengthy road trip with my two elementary aged boys, this was the ideal place for the last two nights of our trip. Despite our trip falling during an extremely rainy period of time, we were able to relax in a clean and comfortable home - and the large screened in back porch was particularly nice. I got some spectacular snapshots of both sunsets we experienced from the dock. The out-of-the-mainstream location was so rejuvenating. We ended up using only one bedroom that had 2 queen sized beds - and I wished we had planned ahead to have some family or friends meet us there because the house was so perfectly setup for lots of guests. I would definitely recommend this property and return again. Brent gave us very thorough instructions and was easy to contact, as well as quick to respond. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture those sunsets!!!"

"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!"
