Property type house

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this Rye Key house is the place for you. Located in Cedar Key, Rye Key is a small gated community of fewer than 15 houses. Our house offers the ultimate in quiet and privacy. It is located on a short street with only two other houses and on a lagoon shared with only one other house. Although every room has many windows, curtains seem unnecessary for privacy. This quiet privacy is only two miles from the historic commercial area of Cedar Key, easily reached by car, golf car or bicycle.

The light-filled, tile-floored house features two bedrooms separated by a great room. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, bathroom, sliding glass doors and a small covered porch. The great room has a living area with leather furniture, a dining area and a sun porch with a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. The fully equipped kitchen is separated from the great room by a bar with stools.

There are porches on both the land and water sides of the great room. A private dock allows access to the water. Fish for red fish, kayak, canoe or simply sit and watch the tide change. The lagoon is home to many varieties of birds, including herons, egrets and osprey. Mullet jump, catfish and stingrays swim in the shallows, the big red fish feeds on the oyster bars and, occasionally, a dolphin visits.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our days in your beautiful home in Cedar Key. It was exactly what we wanted – secluded, scenic, quiet and full of wildlife. We really enjoyed the sunsets on the dock!

Thank you for sharing and letting us rent your property.

Comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and in a quiet location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would mention though that the couch does not pull out into a bed and the futon couldn’t be used for sleeping by anyone over 50 pounds. The beds though are very comfortable

The place was as described. the beds were comfortable and living room couches were so soft and comfy. We enjoyed walking down to the dock and watching the birds and seeing the fish jump. Very relaxing vacation.

Quiet and Natural Beauty of the Water

  • 5 of 5

When I arrived to check in, I was informed that the AC was not working but it was being checked. It was an electrical problem and was fixed within a few hours. No problems during our stay at Heron Lane House. The boys fished off the dock and from their kayaks. I saw many birds including a Roseate spoonbill. The kitchen was very well equipped, but a larger outdoor grill would be nice. Very comfortable and the multiple windows had wonderful views. I would stay here again.
