Are you looking for a little Serenity in your next Gulf Coast, Florida vacation? This is the original Cedar Key Serenity! Our views of the Gulf are panoramic, our style is low-key, and we want you to kick back, get comfortable and most of all, have a great time and come see us again! We offer personal attention and direct reservations without added fees.
Please note that we do NOT use HomeAway or VRBO payments or "Book It Now" and we speak with our guests in order to make reservations. We keep your information and ours private. Please email us an inquiry or call us directly - click the "show phone number" button below "instant quote". IF Serenity is booked for your dates - check out our other condo Tranquility in Cedar Key - also known as VRBO 27021.
Serenity is a third floor* walk up vacation rental condominium with one king bedroom, plus loft bedroom. The master (king) bedroom is next to a full bath. The loft bedroom has its own shower bath and a convertible sofa and child bed chair. Our vaulted ceiling offers incredible two-story views of Cedar Key's back channel and Waccasassa Bay. If you are a bird-watcher, you will be mesmerized by the variety of birds that feed and hang out just below your private balcony. Throw open the French doors and feel the sea air and breezes gently relax your mind and body. Enjoy the sunrise palette across the sky with your morning coffee and the spectacular colors of the sunsets each evening.
(*Please note we have no elevator!)
Cedar Key is perfect for couples or family vacations. Park your car and walk to restaurants, galleries, boat rentals, shops, and the town marina. Most dining and shopping options on Dock Street are three blocks from Serenity. Golf cart rentals are also available if you would like to range a bit further. Cedar Key is part of Florida's Nature Coast--the feathered wildlife is abundant, the spring break party crowd is NOT. If you are looking for sugar-sand beaches, wild nightclubs, or singles bars don't come to Cedar Key--you won't find nightlife or long beaches here.
Our location insures no car noise from busy streets, no bar noise, just the sounds of birds, boats, and happy people fishing or playing in the pool. We're close enough to walk to Dock Street, but far enough away that you'll appreciate the serenity of the setting.
We offer FREE and private WiFi. Free streaming movies via NetFlix and Roku provide plenty of entertainment and music options. Free long distance calling in the US and Canada is included.
~~If we are not available for your dates, check our other condo Tranquility in Cedar Key: VRBO #27021
Our Cedar Key condominium vacation rental is fully furnished and equipped for your convenience. Our goal is to bring you back again and again. Besides our fully-equipped kitchen and quality linens, our amenities include private high speed DSL to keep in touch (if you want to!) and can stream movies and music to suit your every mood.
We purchased and refurbished Serenity in the summer 2005 and are committed to keeping our home away from home in good condition and style. Recent updates include new stainless appliances and a new TV/Entertainment center, and linens.
Well-behaved dogs on flea and tick treatment may be accepted with owner permission. We prefer that you crate your dog when not in the condominium. Dogs are not allowed on the furniture. There is a small pet fee - it is substantially lower than other pet friendly units on Cedar Key island.
If you are looking to enjoy old Florida without 'the mouse'(sm), the plastic, or the crowds, come to Cedar Key and relax on the balcony and watch the birds and boats go by. You will not want to leave. Rent your vacation home ***from the owner***, we can answer questions about specifics in Serenity and we happily provide recommendations and suggestions on how to make your trip to Cedar Key - your best vacation yet!
Cedar Key is surrounded by the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge - a refuge famous for its extensive colonies of nesting birds. Depending on the season you visit, you will see Roseate Spoonbills, White Pelicans, Dowitchers, Willets, Skimmers, Oystercatchers, Frigate Birds, Wood Storks, and many LBBs (little brown shorebirds, from plovers to sandpipers). Always resident are: Great Blue Herons, Little Blue Herons, Tricolors, Great Egrets, Osprey, Bald Eagles, and many others.
We look forward to talking with you soon!

Activities include birdwatching, photography, inshore & offshore fishing, Cedar Key Nature Photography, Birding, Artistic Pursuits, shopping, kayaking, paddle-boarding, canoes and paddling sports. Cedar Keys is a National Wildlife Refuge and is close to the Lower Suwanee National Refuge too. We love the laid-back, flip-flop community which has more golf-carts than cars. Come see us, you'll love it. Escape to the Florida that time forgot!
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are '50/60 somethings' new media professionals living in middle Georgia. We love the community of Cedar Key, Florida. Vacationing in comfort with Internet access is a requirement. Don't leave home without it! :-)
Why the Owner Chose Cedar Key, FL, USA:
We started visiting Cedar Key in 1997. An obscure reference to Cedar Key online doing a web search piqued our curiosity and we headed down for a long weekend and fell in love with Cedar Key (and each other!). Cindy used to spend her off season escapes on the Cape or on the Maine coast. After moving to GA, she couldn't find anything that had the old New England funky seaside town feel - where it didn't matter if you dressed for dinner, where there weren't any silly requirements for what shade of blue you could paint on a sign, and where birdwatching was just something you did as a matter of course. Cedar Key met all those requirements and more. No chain stores, lots of 'gone fishing' signs in windows of businesses, restaurants with really good food. We looked for a place to love, found our spot and waited five years for our first condo to be built. We had the pick of the sites. We 'did good' ;- on choosing which unit so we'd have an excellent view. Now almost two decades later, Cedar Key is still our favorite place to escape. We still spend most of our Cedar Key time hanging out on our balcony in Tranquility or Serenity or the fishing dock watching the world go by. And we love renting the condos out to folks and sharing our passion - Cedar Key, Florida.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Renting directly from the owner provides vacationers with the opportunity to ask direct questions like - do you have a hairdryer? Does your toaster do bagels? (Yes!) Do you have a private WiFi account? Can I make calls back to Canada? (Yes! Free long distance in US and Canada!) And of course, we love to help our guests plan their trips to Cedar Key from the quick weekend escape to a long stay for snowbirds. Let us help you enjoy Cedar Key! We regularly talk with guests to offer as much (or as little information as they need) to help them enjoy their vacation. Our roster of 'regulars' makes us feel pretty good that we're successful at being good hosts of Cedar Key Vacation Rentals.
