Cedar Key - the town that Florida forgot. Florida without the mouse or plastic. If you are looking for quiet, nature, and relaxation, this is old Florida and your ideal vacation.
We have a more than 180 degree view of salt marsh, bayou, and Gulf of Mexico. Water front condo on the island of Cedar Key Florida - Gulf Coast. 3rd floor (top floor!) corner unit with balcony, gourmet kitchen, king and queen bedrooms, 2 baths. Private, quiet, small condo complex. Resort "feel".
Our condo is named "Tranquility" because it was our goal to provide a peaceful escape from a busy world, but to still provide the amenities to have a wonderful vacation. A blending of contemporary organic themes and traditional Japanese design elements lends just the right touch of "Zen" to the space without being intrusive.
We offer a fully amenitized condo in the Old Fenimore Mill Condo Complex including free high speed WiFi (you won't have to share with the whole complex!), free long distance calls to US and Canada, Streaming Movies and Music, and of course the condo complex amenities of pool, jacuzzi, beach, and fishing dock. All that and walk to town for dinner or entertainment.
Bird watching and canoeing are our favorite past times. Other favorites for guests are kayaking - we have great backwaters to paddle here. Fishing is excellent (redfish, sea trout, grouper in deep ocean), several good seafood restaurants and shops within walking distance. Bring/rent a bicycle or golf cart or walk to town. (3 blocks)
If you're looking for sugar sand beaches, Cedar Key isn't your choice, but if you are looking for privacy, nature, and gorgeous views, Tranquility is a piece of heaven on earth.

Cedar Key is also known for its excellent fishing and shellfish - namely farm-raised clams. Known as the "Clam Capital of the USA", Cedar Key clams are famous for their sweetness. Of course there's plenty of other fresh seafood in Cedar Key - from redfish to scallops to stone crabs, everyone can find a favorite here whether you buy it at a fish market or catch it yourself!

Our stay at Tranquility
October 12, 2007
Our week in John and Cindy's wonderful Tranquility condo was absolute... tranquility! The accommodations were all we'd hoped for and much more. We loved the area, and we loved the condo. We especially want to extend our thanks and appreciation to the owners -- Cindy was incredible -- she took personal time and energy to e-mail us, telling us all about Cedar Key, where to go, where to dine, where to shop, where to sightsee, where to go fishing, where to buy bait, etc. etc. My Walter cooks, and the condo was equipped with everything he needed to make some luscious dishes (mostly with the fish we caught!) Thanks, John and Cindy, for a wonderful, fun, TRANQUIL vacation. We'll definitely be back. Kelly Lange

We had such a fabulous trip here, and a large part of what made it so special was this lovely place, Tranquility.
I had searched around long distance for a long time, having never been here before, and it was clear when we arrived, that we'd ended up just where we would be most happy.
We loved the balcony. The endless wonderful show of the birds was a marvel to behold. It was great sitting there for breakfast, in the afternoon -- anytime! We appreciated the spaciousness and comfort of the condo and its decor. The bed was unusually comfortable. It was a nice complement to all the nature to have all these creature comforts -- including the computer I am typing on now! Listening to Pandora was fun-- and I was impressed with how quickly we got a response when I couldn't figure it out ( hardly an emergency). The abundant helpful information provided here made the trip much easier for a first-time visitor. The location of the condo is ideal -- it is great having both the back bayou area and also the area in front on open water. I like that it is set back and private yet also such a short walk to town.
One comment about the stairs: I had read about them and know one condo has an elevator. AT first , this gave us pause -- we are not young, but in our late fifties. I wanted to say here that they were surprisingly easy: not narrow and steep, but easy to climb -- about 39 steps ( coincidence of the name?) and with two landings on the way up. It was never a problem either for us, or bringing luggage up.
All the information in the book was helpful. We especially enjoyed Kona Joe's, sitting with a beer watching the pelicans land in Black Dog Bar and Tidewater Tours and driving up to Manatee Springs ( you will hear that it's too cold to swim , but if you are from the North, it really isn't -- or at least I will carry nice memories of swimming in it.
Some additional places:
We enjoyed the River Walk, 1/2 mile past the North entrance to the Nature Drive in the Refuge. We liked this better than the Nature Drive. It's a lovely short walk down to the Suwanee River and on a short boardwalk.
La Chua Trail in Paynes Prairie ( different entrance from Main entrance) was fabulous. We did this our second day here and were really glad we had gone, even if we hadn't relished getting back in the car. A different type of territory --- wide open prairie in parts, and lots of wildlife. Birds galore, and wild horses and alligators. Not a place I would recommend if you have very young children given the proximity of the creatures -- unless they are so young you are wearing them.

We have rented thoughout most of Florida during the last 10-12 years. John and Cindy's Tranquility is without doubt the most comfortable and well equipped of of them all.
Beyond that you have provided so many of the things most places never think of from the conveniently stored DVD's, VHS tapes and CD's to he info on resturants, fishing guides, kayak and boat outfitters and birding books etc... Not only is managment available and helpful on site but John and Cindy make themselves available as well.
On top of that is Convenient boat parking and easy access to to the water. Our second year and we look forward to more.
And then there is the balcony! What a life...
Thanks and kudos to John and Cindy!
Bill and Marie...
