About Susan Carter

We are Florida natives that grew up fishing in Cedar Key. We are in the construction business and build green homes. This is our dream home for when we can retire. Much love and personal hard work went into creating and building this special get away.

Susan Carter purchased this house in 2010

Why Susan Carter chose Cedar Key

Cedar Key is the perfect place for us to relax, eat great food and kayak from our front yard. It doesn't get any better than that

Perfect for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The Family Tides property was perfect for our Family Reunion (11of us ranging from age 23 to 88)! The kitchen is awesome, the bedrooms roomy and the common areas comfy. Sunrise from the master suite balcony is beyond beautiful, and at sunset out on the private dock we were entertained by a pod of dolphins fishing for their dinner! Definitely a 5-star property that we hope to visit again. Highly recommended for any occasion!

Cedar Key luxury

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful 3-story like-new house overlooking the islands of Cedar Key out to the Gulf. Super nice kitchen with 2 ovens, making cooking home meals easy and fun. Spacious TV-game room. Big bedrooms overlooking the water. Quieter part of Florida that allowed us all to slow down and recharge our batteries. Wonderful week.

Beautiful house, priceless opportunity for family sharing

  • 5 of 5

The house is well appointed and tastefully furnished, basically equipped for all cooking needs. Comfortable for sharing with a big family. We experienced some problems with two of the bathrooms plumbing. I found the heating/AC complicated to set, so we didn´t touch it. The town is quaint and there´s enough to do for a week. We brought bikes and scooters for the kids. Manatee Springs Park is a beautiful outing. We also took the airplane ride! All in all we had a magical stay.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We are terribly sorry about the plumbing issue. We were out of cell service for the first time ever. I learned from this experience that I need an emergency list for plumbing , HVAC etc in case someone cannot reach me. The HVAC system is a zoned system for the first and second floor. The third floor has its on system.
