Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom Lovely Home on Gulf Of Mexico, plus a dock to watch sun set.

After a day of fishing, birding, or kayaking, relax on the screened porch and watch the sunset from this gulf front town-home or stroll to village restaurants, bars and marina.

20 feet above the Gulf, perched atop a treed, pre-historic shell mound, our architect-designed town-home invites you to enjoy all that Cedar Key and mother nature have to reveal. Our private dock and verdant garden is overlooked by double-decked screened porches--the lower off the master suite and the upper porch off the great room and its 14-foot cathedral ceiling. On the opposite end of the house from the Master, the private and light-filled guest room has its own full bath.

Cedar Key is a happening place. Thousands of visitors come to enjoy Cedar Key's Old Florida Celebration of the Arts in April, Clamerica Celebration on the 4th of July, the October Seafood Festival and the events of A Cedar Key Christmas between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Smaller events take place throughout the year including the Cedar Key Star Party, fishing tournaments, boat and Kayaking events, nature tours, and community civic and church activities. The town center hosts a great library with yoga, meditation and community lectures.

Nice but locks to back doors broken

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at "Shore Leave". The Town home was nice, clean, good view of the gulf and all kitchen appliances and utensils provided. However management was not willing to fix the Broken locks to the back, sliding glass doors for the first and second floors. It was an uneasy feeling because anybody could easily break in during the night while we were sleeping. We were told people don't lock their doors at night in Cedar Key.

Owner's Response: I am sorry I miss understood your request about the locks. I could have sent someone over to fix them but you said the door was not a problem, maybe you had just meant the second floor. Both locks will be done for the next guest so I hope you try again in the future. Thank you for letting me know. Kind regards,, Anne

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very comfortable. The beds could be replaced. They were to soft. We loved sitting on the enclosed porch looking out over the water. Not much room for parking especially if the other units were occupied. Overall a very nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Good morning, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I will check into the beds with the owners and see if we can get them more comfortable. I hope you have a great fall and will come back to the island and see us in the future. Kind regards, Anne

Comfortable, Large Townhouse

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse was very comfortable with large rooms - except the kitchen, but we didn't spend much time there anyway. The kitchen is equipped with just about everything you need.

The mattress on the king size bed was very soft - not what we are used to but it was very comfortable.

The unit is a little dated and could use some updating.

There is a nice view from the porch. Its not as open as the view from some places but still very nice.

The walls must be a little thin. The neighbor next door had a dog and we could hear it every morning around 7am. Enjoyed working with Anne and she was very accommodating!

We would stay there again.

Great location and comfort in Cedar Key

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous island. The townhouse was so comfortable and well equipped. Easy walk to the main pier and restaurants. Excellent food and service at Carlin's and the restaurant opposite. Breakfast at Annie's cafe was a great start to the day. Sunset from the dock at the property was fabulous. Getting around on a Gulf Buggy is ideal! Hired canoes and saw so much wildlife round the island Artensie Otie. Thoroughly recommend property and Cedar Key.

Beautiful View, great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were pleased with our stay at "Shore Leave". Our family of 4 had plenty of room, especially liked the separate living quarters. The kitchen was well stocked, the house was clean, the linens comfortable.

We were able to launch our kayaks from the beach out back, which was a huge plus for us.

If it was just the 4 of us , we would definitely stay here again. Anne at the mgmt. company was great to work with and very helpful/accommodating! A+
