  • Just what I needed!!!!

    "I was looking for a few days of rest/sun/relaxation and this house was perfect for just that!! We rented a boat from River Haven on Sunday and Monday - caught a few fish but with the cold weather, fishing just hasn't been good anywhere lately!!! We did catch some catfish off the dock......and one yucky eel!!!! Love the openess of the house and the view was wonderful!!! Definitely would love to go back to this house again."

  • Just Relax!!!

    "Cedar Keys and this condo have the same great qualities; clean, warm, welcome and easy on the eyes. The water views from the condo were outstanding especially sunset. Bird and occasionally dolphin watching can be done right form your deck. The condo is well stocked, clean and well appointed. Any services on the island restaurants, shops and grocery store are less than a 10 minute walk from the condo. Easy water access right from the dock for those who boat or kayak. The condo is in is secluded and quiet location. We put this island and condo on the must do list on our next visit to Florida."

    "we stayed in this condo while we went to the shands parkinsons clinic . because of the proximity to the clinic we were able to walk to and fro with no problem. the location was excellent-right by the university, yet very quiet. having 2 and a half bathrooms was convenient since there were three of us. very close by there was a university bus which was free, and also a grocery store within walking distance. stephanie was most helpful and personable. having the space and kitchen facilities was better than staying in a motel and very reasonable. stephanie made sure that our stay was most pleasant and nothing to be desired."

Florida North Central Travel Tips

North Florida Vacation Rentals Provide Plenty of Fun

North Florida is less well-known than the Panhandle and the beaches further south in Florida but it is a charming area with rolling hills, horse farms and small coastal communities. Popular during the winter with snowbirds and retirees, the area has plenty to see and do and most places are within a 90-minute pleasant drive of either coast.

Staying in North Florida Vacation Rentals

Renting a North Florida vacation home is the perfect way to enjoy a relaxed, do-as-you-please vacation. Homes are comfortably furnished and equipped to a high standard with dishwashers, full-size refrigerators, microwave and washer/dryer. With a dining area, living area with TV, and as many bedrooms and bathrooms as you choose, there is plenty of space for even the largest family to spread out. Whether you are looking for a condo, cabin or beach house, the choice of vacation rentals is extensive. Added amenities include hot tubs, swimming pools, games rooms, bicycles and more, depending upon each individual unit. You can choose one that completely suits your needs.

The university city of Gainesville is a beautiful city to explore. The historic downtown area has some interesting history and great restaurants. The Florida Museum of Natural History, the Butterfly Museum, and the Hippodrome State Theater are all great places to visit. Nearby are the famous Kanapaha Gardens with beautiful lakes and gardens for strolling around.

Tallahassee is the state capital of Florida and has a downtown Capital Building, Imax theater and many shopping malls. The quaint towns of Havana, Monticello and Quincy are great places to visit for a bite to eat and to browse around the local shops and antique stores. Wakulla Springs State Park, Silver Springs and Green Cove Springs offer a host of water-based activities. Just beyond Tallahassee is the Apalachicola National Forest.

Cedar Key is a delightful community on the west coast of North Florida. It is surrounded by the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge which has extensive colonies of nesting birds including roseate spoonbills, pelicans, skimmers, storks and other shore birds. The small streets around the docks have many restaurants and art and craft shops, and the artists are happy to chat with visitors about their work and what brought them to this lovely area.
