About the property

Three Bedroom, 4 half baths, Great Water View From Deck, Boat Dock, Lots Of Room

Fisherman and boater paradise. This unique rental has so many special amenities. Located right on the main waterway which leads out to the gulf of mexico. This rental has three separate bedrooms, a den area referred to as the pelican room that has a flat screen tv, a wrap around couch, sitting chairs, a separate large entertainment area, with 10 bar stools, additional seating, reclining couch and chair, flat screen tv, a beer dispenser which can hold up to two kegs of beer, a fully functional kitchen with all the appliances and cookware.

The main bedroom has a gorgeous view of the water, with a king size bed, sitting area and a separate closet. The second bedroom is large with two queen beds and dressers for each bed, plenty of room for additional blowup beds if needed. The third bedroom is quaint and quiet with a queen bed. There is a sitting area with full size desk that can be used as a work station, with access for internet connection to go online, browse the net or check email. There are two separate bathrooms toilet and sinks, two separate showers and change rooms. There is a large deck which overlooks the waterway, with gorgeous sunsets, and plenty of bird watching opportunities. There is also a floating dock for boating, fishing, and to launch your kayak.

This property has three unique appeals, not really found anywhere else on the island!

1. A fisherman's paradise. You have direct waterway access to the gulf, depending on the size boat you may have to watch the tides when planning gulf access. Fishing right off the dock area. Boat launch nearby, you can tie your boat up to the floating dock right on the property. This unit is great for friends to get together and stay in one place to do your fishing excursion.

2. A boater & kayakers dream. Once again you have direct access to the gulf and surrounding islands and all the wetland areas. You can tie up your boat, and depart directly from this location with all your family members. Plenty of parking for guest and your boat trailer. This location is a nature lover's delight, with all natural beauty, scenic wetlands, all kinds of water fowl, and endless number of coves and islands to explore.

3. A family retreat. This vacation rental is large enough to have a good size family stay in one location (10-12 guest); therefore avoiding the cost having to rent several rental units for you everyone to be together. Pricing has been figured on its ability to handle the larger numbers of guest, and visitors. There is large dining area. This unit is great for family friends to get together and stay in one place.

Christmas at Cedar Key loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and her husband have a campsite down the road and we’re the ones that inspired us to spend our Christmas vacation in cedar key. Other family members close by were able to enjoy this spacious house . We walked downtown everyday for donuts and the playground. My son in law and husband were able to fish. Can’t say anything negative except it was a tad chilly. But being from Wisconsin that’s not saying much.

Great place for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations in the house! Everyone enjoyed the stay and began to discuss next year. We did a traditional Thanksgiving meal with ease. Plenty of cookware, for a big meal. The place is unique and spacious.

Also, there was great fishing offshore!

Very clean rental with great layout for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome place for family vacation. Conveniently located right off the channel so you don't have to deal with launching your boat at the marina -just hop in. The kids had a blast fishing off the dock and we even had dolphins swim down the channel right in front of the dock -super cool! The

house was fully equipped with everything you

need. Our trip was in August. We definitely want to go back -next time we will plan our trip in spring or fall so we can spend more time on the deck! It was lovely!

Lovely House with Excellent Layout

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days here and it is amazingly comfortable for our group of 7. The kitchen is so family dinner friendly, we cooked our catch everyday in this very functional galley! The house is clean and the beds were so comfortable! The linens were crisp like a 5 star hotel and plenty of pillows! The bathrooms are spacious with beautiful modern fixtures. I can't say enough good things about the back deck overlooking the cove of peaceful water. The town area with the "Steamers" restaurant was within walking distance (get the Seafood Pasta- YUM) as was "Holy Moly" which had awesome Quesadillas and Italian Salads! This stay was so blissful the kids barely noticed there was no DVD player, they spent hours playing and talking instead! SCORE!!

Fabulous house for a celebration

  • 5 of 5

A convenient 1/2 mile bike ride to the town area, and on a dock overlooking an inlet--this house was a gem. My family and I loved the bar set-up, and spent most of our time in the kitchen. We brought a keg and there was still co2 in the canister for us to use the tap. We put our kayaks right into the water from the backyard, enjoyed the grill, and slept like babies on the cozy beds. I would definitely come back to this place. Thanks to Rick for being an accommodating and attentive host.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What an amazing place to stay! This property was perfect for our gathering.

I enjoy a place that is tastefully decorated and this place amazes me. The furniture and decorations are appealing and creative.

The owners obviously anticipate the needs of traveling guests. There's everything that is needed from a hair dryer to the ample places to hang towels and clothes. One of the most important things that can make or break my stay is the comfort of the bed. These beds even have mattress toppers and extra soft sheets! I like my bed at home but the bed here is even more comfortable than mine!

There was a binder we could use that equipped us with all the information we needed about the rental property and the surrounding area offerings.

The large deck overlooks the waterway and areas where birds visit. It was so relaxing to sit on the deck and listen to the birds, soak in the sun rays and then fish off the dock.

The kitchen is well-equipped and spacious. There's everything you need for making any meal but it's within walking distance of several quaint restaurants.

The toilets are in separate rooms than showers; this is so smart. It came in handy for large group. Someone in the shower doesn't hold up the whole bathroom.

For those who still need to get a little work done, there's a large office and wireless internet.

Keep in mind in planning how many clothes to pack. There is a large washer and dryer that is very handy when trying to keep luggage light for flights and rental cars.

I mostly enjoyed the time we were able to spend together as this home had roomy places to visit. We also had fun watching television together on the large, comfortable sectional.

We will definitely be back as this is a wonderful place to stay!
