  • You will be extremely satisfied with these condos

    "My wife and I spent a week in Gainesville and wanted to avoid the hotel scene where you never feel at home. We found the Summit House condos on line and decided to give it a try. The price for a week was much cheaper than a hotel and the experience was delightful. Immediately after arrival the owner called us to make sure we arrived safely and to ask if we needed anything. The condos are spacious, extremely clean and have everything you could ever need in terms of dishes, silverware, cleaning supplies, large screen tv and very comfortable furniture. There are two swimming pools on the property for swimming and sun bathing. The condos are very close to the University of Florida campus so you can walk anywhere and avoid the hassle of trying to find a parking spot. They are also very close to the hospitals, numerous restaurants, taverns and shopping areas. The location is just ideal for almost anything you could want to do around Gainesville. If you need a safe, quiet, comfortable, spacious condo for a weekend, week or month, you will be very satisfied with the Summit House condos."

  • On the gulf

    "Our stay was wonderful! The home was clean and the updated kitchen was great. The linens were top notch. The only drawback was the lack of storage chests and night stands in the room with the twin beds. We remedied this by bringing in a side table from one of the decks. The location of this condo is perfect for bird and dolphin watching, and it is exceptional for launching your kayak on the beach immediately to the left of the condo. The two decks were perfect for morning coffee or to get a peek at the moon. One warning: If you have a full sized truck or large vehicle, you won't be able to get it into the very narrow carport under the condo; however this was a great place to store our kayaks. Also there is no operational fish cleaning table on the premises. There is no WiFi and cell service was weak or intermittent, but you go to Cedar Key to get away from it all! Overall we were very pleased."

  • Why would you stay anywhere else?

    "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place!! It was perfect in every way! The porch overlooking the Gulf was absolutely the perfect spot to spend the week. I can't say enough about how nice this place was. It was such an easy, relaxing place to be. It was an easy walk to EVERYTHING - grocery store, restaurants, bars, and shops - and incredibly well stocked with everything needed to cook if we wanted to stay in. (And everything was IMPECCABLY clean!) Knowing there was a washing machine and dryer made it easy to pack. It was a wonderful relaxing week and I actually felt like I had been on vacation!! Again - I SAY! - it was absolutely perfect! My sister and I loved it!"

  • 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!"
