Cedar Key Tranquility - Birdwatchers! Awesome View! Walk to Town!
1100 Sqft Condo hosted by Cindy
5 Guests . 2 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms

Overview

Cedar Key Tranquility is a 2/2 vacation rental condo at Old Fenimore Mill, 2-4 blocks from dining, drinking and the marina on Dock Street in Cedar Key. Our 3rd floor walk-up (no elevator), corner condo has a VERY private balcony with fabulous view, gourmet kitchen, king and queen bedrooms, and two full baths set in a small, quiet, condo complex on a peninsula. Furnishings were chosen to impart a feeling of tranquility to complement the breathtaking views of Florida's Nature Coast. (Please note - not handicap accessible, no elevator.)

Tranquility is equipped for your comfort and convenience. Experience "Florida without the Mouse"!(sm) Our northeast-facing balcony offers a stunning view of small mangrove islands, Wacassassa Bay and the Gulf. Enjoy sunrises year 'round and incredible summer sunsets.

Our Cedar Key condo complex is resort-like. There are only 6 units per building and we're on the top floor - so it's relatively quiet - you won't have dozens of people tromping past your door or kids bouncing over your head. No street noise either. Our private fishing dock has a freshwater fish cleaning station. The fishing captains will pick you up at the dock! (And we're happy to recommend our favorite fishing captains!)

Our heated swimming pool and jacuzzi are terrific for relaxing. Boat trailer parking is available on a 'first come first serve' basis. The town beach and park are less than 1 block walk with playground equipment, picnic tables, cabanas and plenty or shade or sun - your choice to relax or be active! Park your car in our covered parking and walk to dining, drinking, shops, and the marina. Tranquility is close enough to walk to town, but far enough away so you're not listening to the bar bands under your bed...

Cindy
Owner
We are 50/60 something new media developers, bird watchers, hikers, and campers who love nature, technology and Cedar Key. We've been going to Cedar Key for 20 years, waited for five years to buy Tranquility (our first condo) in 2002. We love sharing our second home with guests, friends and family. We love talking with guests and helping them enjoy their escape to Cedar Key - a unique piece of Old Florida.

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.
