About Bill Watford
About Bill Watford I am a native Floridian. There are a lot of nice cities in Florida and my two favorite small towns are Deland on the east side of the state and Cedar Key due west on the Gulf of Mexico. I started buying houses to rent as an investment while I had a full time day job, my first in 1985 and I still own it - the Cedar House of Deland. My full time job today is managing the vacation rentals and short stay properties that I own. I have several in Deland: The Units of the Deland Marigold, Grandma's Place, and The Cedar House. I also have three in Cedar Key: The TreeHouse, FishTale Lodge and Goose Cove Cottage. I enjoy what I do and am passionate about seeing that my guests have a great experience while staying in one of my properties.
Bill Watford purchased this Cottage in 2002

A great quiet place to stay
This is a really nice roomy cottage! There is a convenience store close by, and you are just a mile from all of the restaurants and shops. Everything you need(dishes, towels, plates, etc) is there, including a washer and dryer. Bill, the owner, is readily available by phone if you should need anything. My husband and I really enjoyed our time there:)
Goose cove stay
Place was overall great! Pictures did make it look a lot bigger but was very cozy. Great view!!! Only recommendation would be a ladder for boat deck, unable to get on or off boat even with high tide so had to drive to marina every day. Would stay again most definitely!!! Great hook up with Bob for golf cart!!
Next time I go over there I'll take a look and see if I can come up with a safe ladder solution.
I haven't needed it, so I wouldn't have thought of it. Thank you for mentioning it.
Cedar Key - Where you go to relax
This was our sixth year vacationing in Cedar Key, but the first time at this property. We decided to use this property because it allowed pets. It was a wonderful stay in a nice a quiet location. Having access to the canal was nice and close. I am disabled and although the fishing was not great in the canal it was close and I was able to make the short walk to the dock with a chair and fish in the peace and quiet. Make sure you rent a golf cart from Bobby Sea! This property is not that close to downtown and a golf cart is the best way to get around town. Besides Bobby is a great guy. I would recommend this spot to anyone who wants a peaceful and quiet get-away to one of the best vacation spots there is. It was the first time that we took our dog on vacation with us and I was concerned that it would be a problem. The dog did wonderfully and there is plenty of space to walk him.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you brought your dog with you. We accept pets because we love them too and understand guests enjoy themselves more when their four legged family is with them. I expect Rocky the retriever came by to meet you and your dog- he's our unofficial street mascot (and his Dad is Bobby).
Cute comfortable with a Killer view
Wished we could have stayed longer. We will try and book again. House is right on the water, neighbors were friendly and plenty of parking for our needs.. 26 foot offshore boat and a few SUVs. All the comforts you need and close to town..
I hope you had great fishing and you got to use the new T-TOP fish cleaning station by the dock.
Another great stay at this property. Return customer. Love this property.
Cedar Key is a wonderful place to take Air boat tours, Charter a fishing boat, rent a kayak, visit the museum or just enjoy a nature walk by day and Star Gazing by night.
Water and Nature is Everywhere in Cedar Key.
