Welcome to our 2 bedroom, 1 bath home on a quiet residential street. This home is fully wheelchair accessible, including a large wheelchair ramp to enter the home. The home faces East and is on an unobstructed waterfront 1/2 acre lot. Bathroom and kitchen have been recently renovated, bedrooms both have temperpedic mattresses, and there is a brand new front loader washer and dryer. Kitchen is fully equipped. There are two sleeper couches in the den. There is a combination living / dining area, a den, plus a large pantry with washer / dryer. On the back of the home facing the water is a large sunroom with table, couch, settee and chair, a great place to spend time overlooking the water.
This home is owned by a brother and sister, Maryjane and Will, who inherited the house from their parents.
Mom and Dad fell in love with Cedar Key and vacationed here for many years before moving here full time in 2006. We live in Atlanta and now are using this as our vacation home.
Cedar Key is a great small town get away!
We had the time of our life in Cedar Key at the Stevens House. The house is very spacious and oriented to make the most of the wonderful sunny Cedar Key mornings. In February we were well comforted by the heating system on a couple of nights. During the warmer days the wonderful ceiling fans kept us pleasantly cool. The kitchen is indeed, very well equipped and well lighted. It was especially nice to have the ice maker and the dishwasher when we had guests for the wonderful seafood dinners we prepared. The house is modestly appointed, delightfully pleasant and extremely functional. We really appreciated the numerous additions and upgrades (instant hot water, internet, dish network, spacious porches, car port and workrooms, dishwasher, washer and dryer).
Fishing off the dock, launching our kayaks from the yard and the addition of the bicycles for our use were extras we made use of every day. The neighborhood is quiet, but friendly and the pace is easy going. Walking to the State Park around the block (where John Muir stayed for a time), watching the bald eagle pair at the corner, the dolphins that occasioned the bay and kayaking to Atsena Otie were special treats for us. Everyday bird watching included egrets, herons, ibis, two varieties of pelican and a flock of roseate spoonbills. Cedar Key is a special place and the Stevens House is a wonderful welcoming way to let the magic unfold. We were graciously permitted to have an irregular rental period that extended our stay and enabled us to take care of our grandchildren (due to their vacation schedule). We look forward to returning and working with Maryjane was a dream.
R & L
What a lovely house! It is a very spacious home with nice furnishings. My favorite spots were the kitchen which is fully stocked and lots of space for those of us who like to cook. There were pots and all kinds of utensils for some serious seafood cooking, ie oysters, crabs and fish. It was great. My other favorite spot was the enclosed porch that looked out on the bay. There were comfortable chairs and tables for lounging and eating. We watched diver ducks, egrets, cranes, etc. cruise through the area in front of our porch. In addition there is a nice barbeque grill.
Our only negative with Cedar Key was the weather. It was February and very cool and windy. It got down to 28 degrees one morning! However, the heating system worked very well.
This is a remote island with lots of bird life and wildlife refuges nearby. Very quiet island. We only ate out once in the town which was not a good experience. It is at least 30 miles to the nearest town with shopping. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, then this is it. My husband wanted to come here for the fishing. He struggled with the weather, but when it was good, the fishing was good as well!
All in all we had a great experience with this property and the owner. Maryjane was quite responsive when contacted. We didn't really have any needs or problems with the house that required her help. We would rent from her again and definitely recommend this property for renting.
