About the property

Three Bedroom, 4 half baths, Great Water View From Deck, Boat Dock, Lots Of Room

Fisherman and boater paradise. This unique rental has so many special amenities. Located right on the main waterway which leads out to the gulf of mexico. This rental has three separate bedrooms, a den area referred to as the pelican room that has a flat screen tv, a wrap around couch, sitting chairs, a separate large entertainment area, with 10 bar stools, additional seating, reclining couch and chair, flat screen tv, a beer dispenser which can hold up to two kegs of beer, a fully functional kitchen with all the appliances and cookware.

The main bedroom has a gorgeous view of the water, with a king size bed, sitting area and a separate closet. The second bedroom is large with two queen beds and dressers for each bed, plenty of room for additional blowup beds if needed. The third bedroom is quaint and quiet with a queen bed. There is a sitting area with full size desk that can be used as a work station, with access for internet connection to go online, browse the net or check email. There are two separate bathrooms toilet and sinks, two separate showers and change rooms. There is a large deck which overlooks the waterway, with gorgeous sunsets, and plenty of bird watching opportunities. There is also a floating dock for boating, fishing, and to launch your kayak.

This property has three unique appeals, not really found anywhere else on the island!

1. A fisherman's paradise. You have direct waterway access to the gulf, depending on the size boat you may have to watch the tides when planning gulf access. Fishing right off the dock area. Boat launch nearby, you can tie your boat up to the floating dock right on the property. This unit is great for friends to get together and stay in one place to do your fishing excursion.

2. A boater & kayakers dream. Once again you have direct access to the gulf and surrounding islands and all the wetland areas. You can tie up your boat, and depart directly from this location with all your family members. Plenty of parking for guest and your boat trailer. This location is a nature lover's delight, with all natural beauty, scenic wetlands, all kinds of water fowl, and endless number of coves and islands to explore.

3. A family retreat. This vacation rental is large enough to have a good size family stay in one location (8-10 guest: no more than 8 adults and two small children) therefore avoiding the cost having to rent several rental units for you everyone to be together. Pricing has been figured on its ability to handle the larger numbers of guest, and visitors. There is large dining area. This unit is great for family friends to get together and stay in one place.

About Richard Bond

My Brother n law and Sister own this amazing property. I grew up here in Cedar Key, with many fond memories of fishing, hiking, exploring many surrounding Islands. I have been in Real Estate for over 40 years, and I love it.

Why Richard Bond chose Cedar Key

You can sit out on the deck and watch the boats come in and go out, watch the dolphins play as they chase the fish. This property has plenty of parking, is close to the downtown area, has new furnishings, with comfortable beds, all the perks, internet, large flat screen tv's, two AC systems, a beautiful kitchen bar counter top, it just a great place to relax and get away from it all. For the fisherman it is a dream, fish off the dock, or set your boat by floating dock and head out to the gulf. For the persons who love wildlife, kayak of the floating dock and explore, watch mullet jump, native birds fly down and swoop up their catch, or just sit their and watch a beautiful sunrise or sunset.

What makes this house unique

1. Plenty of parking for cars, boats or golf carts

2. Spacious living, large bedrooms & comfortable beds

3. Great entertainment, large flat screen Tv's satellite and Netflix

4. Floating dock with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico

Guestbook comments from the manager

What an amazing place to stay! This property was perfect for our gathering.

I enjoy a place that is tastefully decorated and this place amazes me. The furniture and decorations are appealing and creative.

The owners obviously anticipate the needs of traveling guests. There's everything that is needed from a hair dryer to the ample places to hang towels and clothes. One of the most important things that can make or break my stay is the comfort of the bed. These beds even have mattress toppers and extra soft sheets! I like my bed at home but the bed here is even more comfortable than mine!

There was a binder we could use that equipped us with all the information we needed about the rental property and the surrounding area offerings.

The large deck overlooks the waterway and areas where birds visit. It was so relaxing to sit on the deck and listen to the birds, soak in the sun rays and then fish off the dock.

The kitchen is well-equipped and spacious. There's everything you need for making any meal but it's within walking distance of several quaint restaurants.

The toilets are in separate rooms than showers; this is so smart. It came in handy for large group. Someone in the shower doesn't hold up the whole bathroom.

For those who still need to get a little work done, there's a large office and wireless internet.

Keep in mind in planning how many clothes to pack. There is a large washer and dryer that is very handy when trying to keep luggage light for flights and rental cars.

I mostly enjoyed the time we were able to spend together as this home had roomy places to visit. We also had fun watching television together on the large, comfortable sectional.

We will definitely be back as this is a wonderful place to stay!

Nice place for family

  • 4 of 5

Great place for 8 people. However because of tides you cannot keep your boat in the water. Have to use the public ramp each time you want to put in which cost $15.00 each time.

Amazing family House

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time “EVER”. We have stayed in many different places around Cedar key throughout the years since we make this our go-to Family destination a few times a year with our kids and this has by far been a wonderful stay and extremely accommodating. It was very clean and the views were breathtaking. My kids loved fishing every day off the docks and Richard was awesome. We asked for an early check-in and he was more than accommodating and to top that all off, we ended up experience a nasty storm one of the days ( which is normal for Florida) and he was just superb as far as helping us with anything we needed. When I read the reviews I was a little worried as for some of the other reviewers complaining about it being a restaurant that was converted into a home and I have to say, I thought that was the coolest part of the house. It is very open and there is more space than we needed for our big family. I have to say, if I had to complain about it would only be that I wish there was a TV in one of the other bedrooms so that my kids could watch TV while the adults had down time in the evenings and a vacuum that cleaned hardwood and tile floors because after a weeks say the floor got extremely sandy and it was a little too much to keep up with just having a broom on hand but other than that absolutely loved it and we will definitely be staying there many more years to come. Thank you Rick for everything. Can’t wait to stay there again!!!

In need of updates and an afterthought

  • 2 of 5

This property use to be an old restaurant but it was not noted in the reservation information. With that being said this property has many unique qualities but many others that were afterthoughts. The showers are poorly installed and water leaks all over the floors causing a major tripping hazard. Instructions indicated not being able to turn the thermostat down past 74 degrees due to the unit freezing over....this is an issue when you have 8-10 people and a very active kitchen. Upon our arrival the floors were dirty and not swept or mopped. There was very limited kitchen equipment as well.

For the money we paid to stay at this location for a week I wish I would have stayed elsewhere.

The one positive was having our own dock which we enjoyed very much.

Cedar key is one of florida's undiscovered area's. Kayaking, fishing, boating are some of the many things you can do. If you like sight seeing, wildlife, birds, fish, dolphins or just nice strolls along the many pathways, or exploring nearby islands this is where you need to make your next vacation.
