Location, location, location. Palmetto Drive is a friendly street with snowbirds and other vacation rentals. The Gulf front view offers a relaxing location. With the canal in the back, guests can launch their kayaks and explore the canal and gulf waters at high tide.
The access to pristine, unspoiled waterways attracted us to this area. Less than a mile from downtown, it is an easy walk, bike or golf cart ride.
We thought the property was clean and ready to go when we arrived early so we were able to get right in. Although we thought it was good we felt it would be great with some minor upgrades, I.E. new appliances, updated tv and upgrade to the dish package, internet, etc. new windows would be great as we had a hard time to raise and lower them. Again minor things that would take the stay from a 3 1/2 star to an easy 5 with the location.
Word about the realtor, Lori was great and easy to work with. Would not hesitate if she was assigned to a property we rent in the future.
Really had a nice time in Cedar Key ... very relaxing .... we enjoyed the boat tour to the the nearby island/keys from downtown and visited numerous parks in the area to see lot's of birds and wildlife.
The accommodations were perfect ... everything as described .. nice neighbors .. and great view of the ocean from the front room and deck.
Fire place don't work, floors in kitchen very dirty! l would say again.
We had a great stay over Memorial Day Weekend! The house and beds were comfortable and the view was relaxing. We had plenty of room and the weather was perfect for enjoying a walk, fishing, etc. We'd definitely stay here again.
This was perfect for a girl's get away weekend. The property is well maintained and comfortable. We enjoyed the beautiful views and easy walking distance to downtown Cedar Key. The kitchen is well stocked with the necessities for cooking. Lori, the manager, was easy to work with and responded quickly to e-mails and phone calls.
Cedar Key is located on Florida's Nature Coast. It is surrounded by tens of thousands of acres of prestine wilderness. Truly a nature lovers dream. State Parks and Archeoligical sites and a quaint downtown reminisent of old Florida exist at the end of SR 24. A well stocked market, award winning restaurants and bars are all within walking distance, or a short ride by golf cart (available for rent in town). Experienced charter captains offer excellent fishing along with airboat and island tours are readily available.
The Mermaid House is a comfortable, beautifully decorated Gulf Front home with water access and a dock on the back canal. The open floor plan offers the opportunity to prepare meals while socializing with guests and enjoying the view of the Gulf. A cozy, wood burning fireplace for the cool winter evenings chases the chills away after a day of back country fishing. There is an outside shower along with guest quarters and a full bath (available for an additional charge). The summer season offers scalloping in the local waters. This 2 bedroom, two bath home is comforatble for snowbirds who may have guests, or anyone looking for a getaway.
