About the property

Cedar Keys - Nature's Coast.

The fishing and bird watching is great in Cedar Key. Our home has an unsurpassed wilderness view with absolute breathtaking sunsets of the Gulf of Mexico from every room in the house including our large screened-in porch and our outside deck area. The Rye Key gated-community is only two miles from downtown Cedar Key, giving the privacy and easy access only Rye Key can provide. Bald eagles, ospreys, pelicans, hawks and wading birds are just a sample of the bird life seen on any given day from the deck. We have seen over 15 different species of birds while enjoying our morning coffee.

Our two-bedroom, two-bath home includes a king-sized bed in one room and two single beds in the other bedroom. The bedrooms are separated by the great room consisting of the dining, living and kitchen area. The home is furnished in an ocean/tropical theme with a wood burning fireplace and an outdoor gas grill.

The fully electric kitchen includes stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cookware and plenty of utensils. The house has central heat and air, cable, DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver, and telescope. Our side-by-side washer & dryer are located in a separate area from the main room and we have ample covered parking. Downstairs storage area.

Cedar Key has excellent flats fishing for spotted sea trout, redfish, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, and blue fish. How do you catch fish in Cedar Key? Ask us, we have over 30 years of fishing experience in the Cedar Key areas. Other activities in town include: day shopping, excellent restaurants and nature trails. And the local seafood is fantastic.

We are pet friendly.

Great home and area. Total relaxation!

The location of this home is perfect. An out of the way location within a short drive to the Cedar Key hot spots. Comfy and inviting, this home was perfect for us. Would gladly stay there again.

Incredible sunset views

  • 4 of 5

Cozy, comfortable and well appointed, Eagle View is a home to be enjoyed. We spent every morning and evening on the screened porch. Sunsets and watching the bird activity made for great dinner entertainment. And the stars!

Cedar Key is one of our favorite places to vacation. Plenty of hiking trails in the area and biking. A short trip (35 miles) to Manatee Springs is a must. Simple fun and no McDonalds...great local food (Steamers, Island Hotel Restaurant, Holy Moly for breakfast) and the local are so nice. Take time to get to know them.

It felt like home. Slept late and enjoyed every moment. Nothing fancy but oh, so cute and comfortable. Paula certainly put special touches into this treasure. Will definitely plan on another visit to Eagles View.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Eagle View for a getaway over a long weekend. The house is located in a small, secluded gated neighborhood. The house is immaculate, and the area is so quiet and peaceful. We brought our kayaks and left them downstairs under the house for the weekend with no concerns about security. We walked our dogs around the neighborhood but hardly saw anyone else around. We loved having our coffee and breakfast on the screened-in porch in the mornings and grilling out on the deck for dinner. I could sit out there all day and watch the tide roll in and out. Communication with Paula went smoothly, and she was very responsive to our questions. We will definitely stay here again the next time we need to get away from city life. Thank you for the perfect weekend.

A relaxing getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! We, unfortunately, were only there for a long weekend, but enjoyed every minute of our stay. The screened porch is wonderful and the view is fantastic. We spent most of our time on the porch enjoying the birds in the area. It is peaceful and quiet. The accommodations are great and everything you might need is provided. Our dogs were perfectly content to be on the porch and/or deck and also enjoyed watching the birds.

Relaxing, peaceful, extremely comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a ladies' weekend getaway to Cedar Key. Wow! The pictures do NOT do this cozy cottage justice. The views are spectacular. We watched bald eagles, jumping fish, and multiple types of wading birds from the deck. We enjoyed stargazing after dark. You can't see stars like that much anymore. We had an unexpected heat wave, so couldn't use the fireplace...maybe next time! Everything was in working condition, clean and VERY comfortable. We slept great! Spend a late afternoon sunset checking out Cedar Key, enjoying drinks, snacks and chatting with the locals before heading back to our treehouse to relax and cook our dinner on the grill. I hesitate to recommend this fabulous place because I don't want people booking it up if I want to go back! Seriously, it was one of my best HomeAway experiences...
