"My daughter and I stayed here for a whole month in November. Eagle's View is a waterfront Rye Key home on stilts overlooking a beautiful area bursting with wildlife. Rye Key is a gated community on Cedar Key near the Museum State Park; it is extremely safe and private. The house was very clean when we got there. There is a great room with high ceilings, an open kitchen, fridge, microwave, oven, dishwasher, plenty of plates/cups/cookware, big screen tv, comfy couch with a pet cover on it, and plenty of chairs for sitting. You get to sit on the couch inside and look out at the great view or sit outside on the enormous deck or inside the screened porch. The two bedrooms are far apart on each side of the house for privacy. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed. We brought our own tv/blu-ray player to put in the bedroom, and a tv/dvd player are provided for you in the great room so you can watch movies and look out at the sunset over the marsh at the same time. Only nitpick would be cable reception, but great internet is far more important to us, and internet was very good, so shows we are decades-dependent on like soaps for me/Letterman for my daughter can be streamed online at the show websites. There is a washing machine/dryer in the closet as you come in. We really like the way the house is designed. Obviously a stilt home is going to have stairs so please keep that in mind if you have an elderly or disabled family member or friend or dog who might have trouble going up stairs. I am an 84-year-old widow, and our German Shepherd is about that in dog years, so it was a relief to know we both made it up the stairs just fine. There is plenty of parking space underneath and a storage room with bicycles, but we ended up renting a golf cart the whole time. A golf cart is expensive to rent for a month but mandatory; Rye Key is not comfortable walking distance from the downtown area, and it is much more pleasant to drive around Cedar Key in a golf cart than in a car unless it is chilly. There were many chilly days in November but many sunny days/warm days, too, and if you are there for a month, you are going to want a variety of weather anyway. We both loved being here, and we do hope to return one day again and again for as long as possible (especially if a golf cart is included HINT HINT :-)! Highly recommended!"
