Cedar Key Serenity - Waterfront + Pool/Spa/Dock! Walk to Dock Street for Dining!
Welcome to Cedar Key Serenity - your next Gulf Coast, Florida vacation! This is the original Cedar Key Serenity! You will love our location - we are 3-4 blocks from most dining, 1/2 block to City Park, and a block to the marina! Let us help you experience the BEST of Cedar Key when you book direct with an owner!

Our views of the Gulf are panoramic, our style is low-key, and we want you to kick back, get comfortable and most of all, have a great time and come see us again! We offer personal attention and direct reservations without added service charges or fees.

OWNER operated and managed.

Serenity is a third floor* walk up vacation rental condominium with one king bedroom, plus loft bedroom. The master bedroom (king bed) is next to a full bath. The loft bedroom has its own shower bath and a convertible sofa and twin fold out chair bed. Our vaulted ceiling offers incredible two-story views of Cedar Key's Waccasassa Bay. If you are a bird-watcher, you will be fascinated by the variety of birds that feed and hang out just below your private balcony. Throw open the French doors to feel the sea air and breezes gently relax your spirit. Enjoy the sunrise with your morning coffee and the spectacular colors of the sunsets each evening.

(*Please note we have no elevator!)

Cedar Key is perfect for couples or family vacations. Park your car and walk to restaurants, galleries, boat rentals, shops, and the town marina. Golf cart and bike rentals are also available. Cedar Key is part of Florida's Nature Coast--the bird life is abundant, the spring break party crowd is NOT. If you are looking for sugar-sand beaches, wild nightclubs, or singles bars don't come to Cedar Key. We take it as a compliment when someone says it's "quiet here".

We offer private and fast WiFi. Free streaming movies via NetFlix and Roku provide plenty of entertainment and music options, but we also have a DVD player and CD Stereo. Free long distance calling in the US and Canada via VoIP is also available.

Well-behaved dogs on flea and tick treatment may be accepted with owner permission. We prefer that you crate your dog when not in Serenity. Dogs are not allowed on the furniture. There is a small pet fee - it is substantially lower than other pet friendly units on Cedar Key island.

If you are looking to enjoy old Florida without 'the mouse'(sm), the plastic, or the crowds, come to Cedar Key and relax on the balcony and watch the birds and boats go by. We happily provide recommendations and suggestions on how to make your trip to Cedar Key - your best vacation yet!

We look forward to talking with you soon!
