About Tina Ryan

After 35 years in southeast Florida, finally being able to move permanently to Cedar Key was a big change. I thought it might be hard to adjust to this small town atmosphere, but that hasn't been the case. With the natural beauty of Cedar Key and the abundant wildlife, there is always something to keep me entertained.

Tina Ryan purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Tina Ryan chose Cedar Key

I found Cedar Key while traveling along the west coast and saw a sign 'discover the islands of the Nature Coast.' I spent the day enjoying this quaint little town and kept coming back. When I saw the cottage for sale, I fell in love with it and decided to buy it for my Mom. Since I live 4 blocks away, I thought this would be a perfect arrangement. I furnished it and gave it a personal touch. Unfortunately, Mom was never able to move in. So, I'm offering it for rent to other people so they can visit Cedar Key and enjoy it as much as I do.

What makes this cottage unique

The Sunflower Cottage is a quaint and well-equipped cottage located in the heart of Cedar Key. It's 2 blocks from the grocery store, 2 blocks from the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see and only a short golf cart ride from the main shopping district. The only vacation cottage in Cedar Key that offers a golf cart for you to get around town during your visit. A golf cart alone would cost you $52-$72 per day so my rate of $130 per night is a great bargin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cottage is adorable. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud and we loved having so many channels on the TV...unlike many of the places in Cedar Key. We'll definitely be back to the E Street Cottage. Sara

Adorable little cottage and the most beautiful little island!

  • 5 of 5

My three friends and I had an amazing time staying at the Sunflower Cottage on Cedar Key. The cottage was a great size, had awesome air conditioning, everything we needed to cook full meals and the golf cart ended up being the perfect cherry on top of the property! The island was small, quaint and beautiful, perfect for an off the beaten path tropical get away from all the hussel and bussel of the bigger tourist cities like Orlando. Lots of shops, restaurants and natural areas to explore! One update I would recommend for the cottage is to have some larger lounge chairs or a hammock for the porch, we spent plenty of time just sun bathing on the deck. Best place on the Island for drinks is definitely the Tiki Bar on the big road that leads into town. Steamers and Tony's while pricey, were by far the best places for food. Having the grill at the cottage was a big plus! I loved using VRBO to find and book this property, the check in/check out and entire stay was hassel free. Thank you for a wonderful vacation experience!!!

Love the Sunflower Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is the 2nd time we stay here, last time was a couple of years ago. Very close to town and the golf cart is a very big plus. We just love driving it around with our small dog. I would give 5 stars, but it really needs a deep clean. I dropped my book in bedroom bent to pick up and there were so much dust under the bed. I was shocked because the house smells really clean when you first come in house. I think they clean between guest, but they need to take time to clean under beds and bathroom corners and behind couches.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry that the floor under the bed was not cleaned before your arrival. Although I do remind the housekeepers to check and clean under the bed, they obviously missed it. I will certainly make sure they are made aware of this issue and I appreciate your bringing it to my attention.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Sunflower Cottage very much. We have stayed in other vacation homes that were much more expensive and didn't have all the little things you might need on vacation, including salt and pepper. The golf cart was the best. We have been to Cedar Key many times but the golf cart allowed us to see Cedar Key in a way we never have before. Being able to bring our fur kids sealed the deal for us. We will return. thanks.
