Relax and enjoy this great 2 bedroom, 1 bath waterfront home in historic Cedar Key, Florida. The house has a large shaded yard with private boat dock. The Bonaire House has the original hardwood floors and native unpainted knotty pine walls that add warmth to this unique original Florida home. The Master bedroom has a Queen bed and the second bedroom has 2 twin beds. Some of the original owners dishes, decoration and art work are still displayed, adding much charm to this 'Florida Cracker House'
Watch the abundant wildlife and beautiful sunrises from the back porch or from the dock's deck. There are beautiful cranes that perch on the dock almost daily. Enjoy a cup of coffee or have your breakfast on the back porch which has a great swing and outdoor seating and overlooks the Gulf's eastern bayou. On low tide see the Pink Spoon Bill's snooping around for minnows that were left behind.
Park your boat, catch crabs and catch redfish off your private dock. Or throw a cast net if you have one! Grill your catch of the day and have a picnic or maybe an just have an old fashion weiner roast in the large shaded back yard. Maybe have a game of Horseshoes! In the fall, enjoy an outdoor fire or oyster roast. The new deck addition at end of dock is equipped with a convenient fish cleaning station. Access to the deep water channel #2 is approximately 250 feet away. No need to get in your car...boat rentals and fishing supplies are available across the street at the Cedar Key Marina.
The high school's tennis courts are open to the public, you don't even need a reservation! A basketball court is located at the beach downtown, just go join in a pick up game!
If you are looking for a fancy, high-end house, this isn't the place for you. But if you are looking for a relaxing, fun, interesting, old fashion vacation with your family or friends then Cedar Key and the Bonaire House would be a perfect fit!
The Bonaire House will make your vacation stay in Cedar Key charming in every way.

Year Purchased: 1995
About: I was born and raised in Cedar Key, I met Dave there in 1977. We got married in the Cedar Key Episcopal Church in 1989. We reside in Austin Texas, and own and run a automotive repair shop and a body shop. We have two children that are almost adults that love to come to Cedar Key and bring their friends. Their friends usually plan to only stay one week but end up staying 3 or 4 weeks because they are having such a great time!
Why Cedar Key, FL, USA:
We chose to buy a house in Cedar Key because we love the gulf coast, with all of its wildlife, great fishing, good seafood, and all the wonderful places to go that are nearby. The people there are so friendly. We have a lot of friends and family there. It is so different from our hectic lives in Austin. Once we get to Cedar Key, we turn off the computers, phones and any other high tech gadget we have, and start relaxing and trying to really reconnect with one another. The wonderful thing about being in Cedar Key is the time we really spend together there, the kids walk down to the City Park at the beach at night and play basketball, then come home and play board games for hours...you can hear their laughter next door. We sit out on the back porch and just swing and talk...sometime we build a fire in the fire pit and have a wiener roast. We even catch crabs off the boat dock! Over the years as I have traveled I have met so many people that have been to Cedar Key and fell in love with the area and way of life. Everyone that vacationed in Cedar Key as children told me that their fondest memories of growing up or vacationing were from when they traveled to Cedar Key. We LOVE it too!!! And can't wait to retire in Cedar Key.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a short walk to downtown Cedar Key's restaurants, shopping and fishing pier. We are directly across from the Cedar Key Marina where you can get all of your boating and fishing supplies. Enjoy the boat dock behind the house, it has a deck area that is great for watching the eastern sunrises. Bikes, kayaks, golf cart rentals, boat tours are all within walking distant. The fishing is terrific and so is the bird watching!! You can fish right behind our house and catch redfish. It is so beautiful out around the other islands. We go almost every year and tour the Old Lighthouse on Seahorse Key. The pelicans are nesting then and when you go up in the light house you can see hundreds of momma pelicans feeding their babies. We see manatees every year out around North Key, they are fascinating whether its your first time or 10th time to see them. When we are coming in from fishing there are always dozens of porpoises that are feeding we stop and are amazed how close they will come up to the boat. You can almost touch them! You won't find a better place than Cedar Key for spectacular sunsets or sunrises!! Be sure to bring your camera! Also bring your water shoes...during the full moon when there is the Spring tide, the tide goes REALLY low, which make is perfect for walking out on the Sand Spit and collecting sand dollars. (Try not to step on them!) There are so many day trips to take near Cedar Key: Manatee and Fanning Springs, Suwanee River, Ichetucknee Springs,you will be amazed how truly beautiful...so much nature....so inexpensive!
