Cedar Key house was pretty much just as described. I will start off by saying the home was formally a small commercial restaurant/bar, which made it very interesting and provided a lot of space for our large family.
The space was clean and completely updated and transformed nicely into a very cool rental home. Bathrooms are great and showers separate from toilet also very thoughtful for a crowd. Everyone in the family had their own area and plenty of privacy. There are only two tv’s in the common area of the bar/living room so the kids were a bit disappointed but there was good WiFi and of course they had their phones. Mattresses and linens were new and comfortable.
The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need or want (note: if you want to eat out meals you are all set but if you want to eat at the rental, bring your groceries with you) there is one small grocery store downtown and it is lovely but can be pricey. Dollar General is 20 miles away and was good in a pinch for forgotten items. The deck was great and large but one of the patio sets and umbrella was old and damaged and could not be used. Grill was brand new and spotless, great bonus for quick meals.
As a side note check out at 10:00 am was not easy for the family with packing and showers and all linens needed to be in washer before you leave, 11:00 would be much easier on guests. Check in is at 4:00 pm which leaves plenty of time for same day turnover.
We brought two boats a 24” Mako and a 16” Whaoo, the Whaoo was fine docked at the house but I would not bring the Mako to the dock at the house, the water is very shallow and you need to watch the tides closely. Good news was the local marina was just down the road. BTW parking outside the rental was plentiful for three big rigs and the fuel station across the way had marine fuel, snacks etc.
In all, the Cedar Key house was comfortable, the view was wonderful and the people were all so very friendly we will be back. The clams are delish, do not miss out on the local delicacy.
Your rental was everything we could want and more! From the location (right on the water), to the wonderful amenities (private dock, large deck, plenty of parking) we were able to invite family up for an afternoon of beautiful weather in Cedar Key! There was plenty of space inside also, with a great den area complete with a flat screen TV that was perfect for the younger family members! And, of course, there is the kitchen/bar area...the place where we lived the most! Thank you so much for sharing this very unique home with us!
One of the few rentals in Cedar Key with a floating dock to moor your boat. It is an interesting place, located across from a convenience store/gas station and on the main drag. Beds were good and bathrooms were clean, but the tile floor throughout was not and I never could find a mop or broom. However, my complaints were quickly addressed by the management and overall it was a very comfortable vacation rental with a beautiful view of the marsh.
Beautiful spacious vacation rental-Kitchen and bar area perfect for family gathering. The bedroom with two queen beds is huge. View from the deck has a beautiful sunrise. Already planning another trip!
Rented this for a long weekend. The deck is great. Unfortunately extreme cold weather kept us from using it or fishing from the dock but we enjoyed all the amenities in the house.
Only thing we found a bit strange.
When you arrive there is a 'Booklet" with instructions. One of the instructions tells you to wash all the towels before you leave. We paid 150 cleaning fee, and assume the maid/cleaner strips the bedding so why onearth would we be told to wash the towels.?. Doesn't make any sense, and have never experience that before, especially at 50 a day cleaning fee!
We did comply, but it was like, gee we have to leave at 10am, so I will have to get up early to take a shower so i can throw those towels into the washer, dry them etc before I leave
Other than that it is a very gorgeous place., and nearby restaurants etc
