Cedar Key Serenity - Waterfront + Pool/Spa/Dock! Walk to Dock Street for Dining!
975 Sqft Condo hosted by Cindy
5 Guests . 2 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms


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!

Cancellation Policy
Spring/Summer stays will have variable cancellations before arrivals. Otherwise this is our winter/holiday season cancellation policy:

Please provide at least 8 week's notice for cancellation to insure that you will not be charged for your reserved dates. We reserve the right to charge a 15% re-booking fee (based upon the original reservation amount). If you cancel closer to the date of your stay than the required cancellation notice date and I am able to re-rent your dates, I will rebate you the amount we were able to re-rent your dates for less the re-booking fee.

If, prior to your arrival, the NOAA National Hurricane Center posts a Hurricane Watch, Hurricane Warning, or an Evacuation Order for Cedar Key during your scheduled stay and you decide to cancel your trip, all payments will be refunded with no penalty. The National Hurricane Center posts "watches" and "warnings" on their website - http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/.

If a Hurricane Warning or an Evacuation Order is posted for Cedar Key during your stay with us, and you depart early, we will refund your Rental Fee for days not used on a pro-rated basis.

OWNER CANCELLATION DUE TO HURRICANE/OTHER DAMAGE - If we experience damage to the Property due to a Tropical Storm or Hurricane or other catastrophe prior to your arrival, and we need to cancel your reservation, we will refund all deposit payments you have made. We will not be liable to you for any additional charges that you might incur in making changes to your travel plans.

We don't allow last minute cancellations (or provide refunds) due to thunderstorms, lack of fish or scallops, wind, rain, cold or fog, football teams doing poorly, or other events beyond our control. Early Departures (except as described in the hurricane policy above) are also not refundable.

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown of any provided household appliances or amenity, please notify OWNER promptly. Every effort will be made to expedite repair or replacement of faulty item. However, there will be no refunds given due to these uncontrollable events.
