Our 3rd floor walk-up, corner condo has a VERY private balcony with fabulous view, gourmet kitchen, king and queen bedrooms, and two full baths set in a small, quiet, condo complex on a peninsula. Furnishings were chosen to impart a feeling of tranquility to complement the breathtaking views of Florida's Nature Coast.
Tranquility is equipped for your comfort and convenience. We want you to relax and experience Cedar Key. We have free (& private!) high speed DSL/WiFi, streaming movies, free long distance (US & Canada) - all on the Gulf of Mexico. Experience "Florida without the Mouse"!(sm)
Our northeast-facing balcony offers a stunning view of small mangrove islands, Wacassassa Bay and the Gulf. Enjoy sunrises year 'round and incredible summer sunsets. Breakfast on the balcony offers amazing views of birds, fishing boats, kayaks, and the ever-changing sky and sea. We have a small sandy beach at our fishing dock - perfect to launch your kayak, play in the sand or catch some rays!
Our Cedar Key condo complex (Old Fenimore Mill) is resort-like. There are only 6 units per building and we're on the top floor - so it's relatively quiet - you won't have dozens of people tromping past your door or kids bouncing over your head. No street noise either. Our private fishing dock has a freshwater fish cleaning station. The fishing captains will pick you up at the dock! (And we're happy to recommend our favorite fishing captains!)
Our heated swimming pool and jacuzzi are terrific for relaxing. Boat trailer parking is available on a 'first come first serve' basis. The town beach and park are less than 1 block walk with playground equipment, picnic tables, cabanas and plenty or shade or sun - your choice to relax or be active! Park your car in our covered parking and walk to dining, drinking, shops, and the marina. Tranquility is close enough to walk to town, but far enough away so you're not listening to the bar bands under your bed...
CEDAR KEY AREA
Surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, the Cedar Keys consist of dozens of islands or keys. About twelve of these islands are reserved as a part of the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge and several are designated as 'wilderness areas'. The refuge boasts some of the largest numbers of nesting birds in Florida. You will see a variety of birds year round - for more info on birds, visit our website - visit cedar key (dot) com.
Cedar Key is old Florida at its best. There are no chain stores and most 'traffic' is on foot, golf carts, or boats. The marina (1.5 blocks) has boat and kayak rentals and there are plenty of knowledgeable tour operators happy to take you on a wildlife or sunset cruise. Golf cart rentals are also available. We recommend bringing your own kayak or we can recommend our preferred kayak/canoe rental company on island - we have plenty of storage room and great launching places for you!
Fishing is a favorite with redfish, speckled/sea trout, and sea cats being the primary catch. We partner with local captains to provide you with the best experience of inshore and offshore fishing. Or if you want to go it alone, bring your boat or rent one at the marina. Be sure to bring your camera!
Cedar Key is part of Florida's Nature Coast--the wildlife is abundant, the spring break party crowd is NOT. If you are looking for sugar-sand beaches, wild nightclubs, or singles bars don't come to Cedar Key--you won't find it here. We do have a nice selection of restaurants and drinking establishments. Some places have music on weekends.
Be sure to check out our website - there are many more photos, a floorplan, a list of amenities, and lots of information to help you quickly get into island life. We're happy to help you plan your stay with us including providing restaurant and tour recommendations and special deals. Hope we can help you enjoy Cedar Key!

About the owner: Cindy and John are '50/60 somethings' and new media designers living in middle Georgia where they enjoy birdwatching on a fabulous lake when they are unable to be in Cedar Key. Working vacations are a requirement for us and you can't beat working with Tranquility's view...
Why the Owner Chose Cedar Key, FL, USA:
We started visiting Cedar Key in 1997. An obscure reference to Cedar Key while doing a web search for 'wild Florida' piqued our curiosity and we headed down for a long weekend and fell in love. Cindy spent her escapes on Cape Cod or the Maine coast in the past. After moving to GA, she couldn't find anything that had the old New England slow seaside town feel - where it didn't matter if you dressed for dinner, where there weren't any silly requirements for what shade of blue you could paint on a sign, and where birdwatching was just something you did as a matter of course, not just with a scorecard. Cedar Key met all those requirements and more. No chain stores, back in a minute signs in windows of businesses, restaurants with fresh seafood and not just overpriced 'weird of the week'. We looked for a place to visit, found our spot to love and waited five years for our first condo to be built so we'd have an excellent view. Now almost 20 years later, Cedar Key is still our favorite place to escape. 'Florida without the mouse (sm)'. We still spend most of our Cedar Key time hanging out on our balcony or the fishing dock watching the world go by to de-compress. And we love renting our Cedar Key vacation rental by owner condos out to other like-minded folks and sharing our passion - Cedar Key, Florida.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We've been online since 2002 advertising Tranquility as the Birdwatchers' Delight in Cedar Key. We work directly with our guests to help them have a wonderful vacation. Renting directly from the owner provides vacationers with the opportunity to ask direct questions like - do you have a hairdryer? Can I hook up my computer to your WiFi? What's the best restaurant in town? And of course, we love to help our guests plan their trips to Cedar Key from the quick weekend escape to a long stay for snowbirds. We'll tell you the latest on what's new and fun in town! Let us help you enjoy Cedar Key! And for the latest information, look for us on Facebook - 'CedarKeyTranquility'. (Note - not all properties advertised in Cedar Key are truly managed by owner - ask!)
