Perfect Place to Chill Out and Rejuvinate

  • 4 of 5

Gulfside Sunrise is a beautiful condo on the top floor. Gorgeous views and well appointed. If you are looking for granite counter tops and such, this is not the place for you. However, if you enjoy the beachy feel and decor this place is for you. We are a family of 4 and were all very comfortable. The condo has excellent cookware, plenty of knives and plate ware. Just look around and you will fine what you are looking for. We really enjoyed the balcony over the water with a very nice table and chair seating for 4 with cushions and 4 nice bar stools. These are actually newer than the ones in the photos on the website.

Beds are very comfortable with good linens and plenty of towels.

We felt right at home immediately. After a hectic week of graduations (high school and college) we really needed this vacation. Thank you for providing a spot for us to recharge our batteries and have a fun and relaxing vacation.

If you rent this condo be reminded it's on the TOP FLOOR! We liked it as we got plenty of exercise going up and down three flights of stairs each time we went in and out. Just meant we could eat guilt free!

We kayaked and paddle boarded all over and explored the many little islands. Never got the hang of the fishing which was unusual for my crew. Went we return, we will use a guide the first day to learn the fishing ways around there.

Cedar Key as an Island has won us over. We loved the vibe!

We will be back.

Great week

  • 5 of 5

Weather and the Dolphins made this a great week. The apartment and it's perfect position ensured we could enjoy it all.

The only negative is the number of steps unfortunately I'm getting too infirm to contemplate them on a regular basis

Luxurious unit, Beautiful Sunrises & Sunsets, Dolphins, awesome fishing & Birds Galore!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week very relaxing stay. Extremely well equipped kitchen allowed many nice dinners in this very comfortable upper end condo. Views to die for, Dolphins so close we could hear them breathing. All sorts of Seabirds too numerous to name. Heated Pool & Hot Tub was great, as was the private natural beach. Did lots of very interesting sailing, Kayaking, walking and Biking.

Located in a small private complex at the end of the island, but only a block or two from "Town", restaurants, shopping, Boat Launch, Public Park/playground/Beach, etc.

We will be back!!, and will stay at #1-F Gulfsidesunrise for a longer visit next time!

Perfect for a weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

This condo was well equipped with all the basic needs for a good getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life...The best part of my trip way watching the sharks feed off the nearby sandbar and then watching the dolphins play in the cove for hours in the afternoon! I will definetly be recommending this to my friends and will be booking another trip soon :) Thank you for a great getaway place!!
