  • A Charming Taste of Old Florida

    "If the glitz of Naples or Clearwater wears thin, and you hanker to experience Florida before condos took it over, then Cedar Key and Charpia Cottage are your antidote. A delightful early 1900's tin-roof clapboard cottage that is fully updated with A/C and modern applicances. The photos - accurate as they are - don't convey the delight of your morning coffee or afternoon libation from the screened porch overlooking the bay, dolphins swimming past. The bedrooms are comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen are spotless, and the living room reflects a whimsical beach cottage ambiance. All this in easy walking distance from shops, good restaurants, and a fine bakery. Wish we'd stayed longer!"

  • Pros and cons

    "The location was excellent! It was so nice to load our stuff for scalloping within a few yards of the house. The roof top views were spectacular. Enjoyed the spacious front porch with the rocking chairs. The management staff were friendly and very helpful. The cons were, the spiral staircase and all bathrooms were on the lower level. Not sure why a house that sleeps 10 only has a dining table for 4, little counter prep space in the kitchen. Loft beds were uncomfortable and one room has no privacy since it has double glass doors. Not the house for us, but we still had a good time."

  • Truly a "Clam Good Time"

    "Spent a wonderful week in this paradise! Physically, the unit was clean and very comfortable. Plenty of pots and pans and glasses and dishes, etc.. for every need. The view is spectacular! In addition to the water and palm trees, we saw a wide variety of tropical birds daily, and most days we spotted dolphins fishing right by the dock - an awesome experience. We rented kayaks from a very nice and helpful local guy (Cedar Key Paddling), and paddled around a lot, especially enjoying a jaunt across to Atsena Okie - worth the visit! The condo is located close enough to the "down town" area that we were able to walk to dinner on the nights we didn't cook in. We found Steamers to be our favorite restaurant. Although we didn't have ours with us, it was nice to see so many dog-friendly places around Cedar Key. If I have to nit-pick...we're king-sized bed people, so the queen in the master bedroom was a bit cramped for us (but we knew what we were getting when we rented)! The pool area is beautiful, but it could use to be heated. The hot tub, however, was lovely. If you plan on eating in, you might consider shopping at a grocery store prior to arriving. While the Market has the essentials, the selection of fresh fruits, veggies, and meat was not the greatest. The stand next to the Marathon gas station, however, has lots of good fresh stuff, but was only open Thurs - Sunday. A ride 10 miles back on Rt. 24 to Richardson's Seafood Market is worth it if you want fresh fish - try the grouper filets! All-in-all this was one of the best places we've ever stayed - thanks to the owners for sharing!!!"

  • Fabulous Weekend

    "My cousins and I just spent a wonderful, relaxing weekend at the pink house. Loved the porch and spent a lot of time out there just watching the water, birds, dolphins, sunrises and sunsets. Once we were on island time the rest of the world just drifted away. I loved the open downstairs making it possible to visit and watch the sunset while you are preparing supper. As for an earlier comment someone made about the stove...we had no problem with it. We cooked fabulous meals on it twice a day even with the crack. I did need some remedial help figuring out how to make the shower work :-). We enjoyed it so much we are thinking about going back next year."
