About Maryjane Stevens

A perfect find!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second month-long rental in Cedar Key and although our first one was also lovely, if we were to return to Cedar Key, it would be to this one.

The house is as described. It is very well appointed and all of the furnishings are comfortable including chairs, rockers, porch furniture, and bed. As a previous reviewer noted, the kitchen is a cook’s dream. There is an amazing assortment of knives and they are sharp (first time ever in a rental). There are good, clean cutting boards, measuring cups and spoons, clean can opener (also rare), and an excellent set of pots and pans. Everything one might need is available in this kitchen.

The scene from the screened-in porch overlooking the tidal flats is ever-changing and always interesting even when there is fog. The porch is ideal for viewing sunrises and birdlife. It is like sitting in your own comfortable personal bird blind. Bring your binoculars. We spent most of our time on the porch, including having our meals, as long as it was warm enough. When it wasn't warm, the heating system in the house was efficient.

The neighbourhood is very quiet and this rental is on a corner waterfront lot. Perfect. It's a good area to cycle around if you bring your own bikes. It's a pleasant ride to Cemetery Point, to the airport; an easy ride into the town area. Cedar Key is impressively cyclist.

The owner responded promptly to every question and was most accommodating. We definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a comfortable, peaceful place to stay.

Let the magic unfold

  • 5 of 5

We had the time of our life in Cedar Key at the Stevens House. The house is very spacious and oriented to make the most of the wonderful sunny Cedar Key mornings. In February we were well comforted by the heating system on a couple of nights. During the warmer days the wonderful ceiling fans kept us pleasantly cool. The kitchen is indeed, very well equipped and well lighted. It was especially nice to have the ice maker and the dishwasher when we had guests for the wonderful seafood dinners we prepared. The house is modestly appointed, delightfully pleasant and extremely functional. We really appreciated the numerous additions and upgrades (instant hot water, internet, dish network, spacious porches, car port and workrooms, dishwasher, washer and dryer).

Fishing off the dock, launching our kayaks from the yard and the addition of the bicycles for our use were extras we made use of every day. The neighborhood is quiet, but friendly and the pace is easy going. Walking to the State Park around the block (where John Muir stayed for a time), watching the bald eagle pair at the corner, the dolphins that occasioned the bay and kayaking to Atsena Otie were special treats for us. Everyday bird watching included egrets, herons, ibis, two varieties of pelican and a flock of roseate spoonbills. Cedar Key is a special place and the Stevens House is a wonderful welcoming way to let the magic unfold. We were graciously permitted to have an irregular rental period that extended our stay and enabled us to take care of our grandchildren (due to their vacation schedule). We look forward to returning and working with Maryjane was a dream.

Nice house.

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely house! It is a very spacious home with nice furnishings. My favorite spots were the kitchen which is fully stocked and lots of space for those of us who like to cook. There were pots and all kinds of utensils for some serious seafood cooking, ie oysters, crabs and fish. It was great. My other favorite spot was the enclosed porch that looked out on the bay. There were comfortable chairs and tables for lounging and eating. We watched diver ducks, egrets, cranes, etc. cruise through the area in front of our porch. In addition there is a nice barbeque grill.

Our only negative with Cedar Key was the weather. It was February and very cool and windy. It got down to 28 degrees one morning! However, the heating system worked very well.

This is a remote island with lots of bird life and wildlife refuges nearby. Very quiet island. We only ate out once in the town which was not a good experience. It is at least 30 miles to the nearest town with shopping. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, then this is it. My husband wanted to come here for the fishing. He struggled with the weather, but when it was good, the fishing was good as well!

All in all we had a great experience with this property and the owner. Maryjane was quite responsive when contacted. We didn't really have any needs or problems with the house that required her help. We would rent from her again and definitely recommend this property for renting.
