Great week

  • 5 of 5

Weather and the Dolphins made this a great week. The apartment and it's perfect position ensured we could enjoy it all.

The only negative is the number of steps unfortunately I'm getting too infirm to contemplate them on a regular basis

Luxurious unit, Beautiful Sunrises & Sunsets, Dolphins, awesome fishing & Birds Galore!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week very relaxing stay. Extremely well equipped kitchen allowed many nice dinners in this very comfortable upper end condo. Views to die for, Dolphins so close we could hear them breathing. All sorts of Seabirds too numerous to name. Heated Pool & Hot Tub was great, as was the private natural beach. Did lots of very interesting sailing, Kayaking, walking and Biking.

Located in a small private complex at the end of the island, but only a block or two from "Town", restaurants, shopping, Boat Launch, Public Park/playground/Beach, etc.

We will be back!!, and will stay at #1-F Gulfsidesunrise for a longer visit next time!

Perfect for a weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

This condo was well equipped with all the basic needs for a good getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life...The best part of my trip way watching the sharks feed off the nearby sandbar and then watching the dolphins play in the cove for hours in the afternoon! I will definetly be recommending this to my friends and will be booking another trip soon :) Thank you for a great getaway place!!

Incredible view, spacious, close to town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple stayed here in Oct 2016. This was the first time I used VRBO and everything worked out great. The condo was wonderful and we all agreed we would stay here again. The view was incredible from the large balcony. We saw lots of dolphins and birds and boats. The condo was spacious and nicely decorated and had plenty of seating in the living room area. Kitchen had everything you needed, although we never cooked a thing! There are several restaurants within several blocks. You can also rent a golf cart a short distance from the condo. We had cars, but it was a lot of fun to drive around the area in a golf cart. One thing to note on the condo is that the unit is two flights of stairs getting to it. Cedar Key is a beautiful, laid-back destination and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Cedar Key Bound

  • 5 of 5

First off, the view is outstanding! Having coffee on the balcony with the sunrise and dolphins swimming right in front of you is breathtaking! We could feel the life of the water with the tides coming and going and the weather changing the landscape at a moment's notice. We had plenty of room for everyone. The laundry was used alot, the kitchen was always cooking up something, and the quietness of the condo made you feel like the place was all to yourself. Getting into town was a 3 minute walk. The pool had too much chlorine or something as our eyes burned after swimming. The only other negatives were the worn pans in the kitchen, the old stove that seemed to burn food easily, and the weak dishwasher. However, we just seemed to overlook those problems and totally enjoyed our stay and would even love to come back to this unit!! Outstanding!
