About this rental
Welcome to the original Cedar Key Tranquility - Birdwatchers' Delight! We have an awesome view in Cedar Key, Florida and are an easy (1-4 block) walk to the marina, park, beach, and most restaurants and bars. Cedar Key is a walking/golf carting island city.
Experience "Florida without the Mouse"!(sm) With new living room furniture and other updates in September 2022, you'll be delighted with our place for your vacation!
Our 3rd floor walk-up (NO ELEVATOR), corner condo has a VERY private balcony with fabulous view, a full 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 while you enjoy the best of the Nature Coast.
Our north/northeast-facing balcony offers a stunning view of small mangrove islands, Wacassassa Bay and the Gulf. Enjoy sunrises year 'round and incredible summer sunsets. We love to eat breakfast on the balcony while watching birds (osprey, egrets, herons, Roseate Spoonbills), fishing boats, kayaks, and the ever-changing sky and sea. And don't forget the occasional dolphin! We have a small sandy beach at our fishing dock - perfect to launch your kayak, play in the sand or catch some rays!
We are located in Old Fenimore Mill, a small condo complex on a peninsula with a resort feel, but low key. There are only 6 units per building (total of 10 buildings) and we're on the TOP FLOOR - so you won't have dozens of people tromping past your door or kids jumping over your head.
Our private fishing dock has a fish cleaning station (with a freshwater hose). Charter captains will pick you up at the dock to go out to bring home the fish for dinner!
Our shared heated swimming pool and hot tub are just steps away. We have covered parking under the building. Boat trailer parking is available on a 'first come first serve' basis. (No docking slips - launch your boat at city marina 1.5 blocks away.)
Cedar Key City Beach and park are less than a 1 block walk with playground equipment, picnic tables, cabanas, gazebo with occasional entertainment and plenty of 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...
We are on the third floor with no one above you to be loud! We're on the quiet side of the condo site which means fewer people being loud or in your view!
Why Kids Love It
We have a great fishing dock you can see from our balcony. We're less than a block away from City Park with playground and basketball court and swim beach.
Cedar Key is known as "the island city" and we have a strong community feel on island. Most folks walk or take golf carts around the dock. There are two primary areas of shopping and entertainment - Dock Street and 2nd Street. The City Marina and shopping/dining district are 1 - 4 blocks from Tranquility - an easy walk. With about 10 primary restaurants, your dining options range from pizza to "Florida fried" to classic fine seafood cuisine. There are many fishing guides and charter captains who will take you out for a half day to full day inshore or offshore fishing. Birds are abundant and we are still an "undiscovered" location for great birding.
Attractions Within Walking Distance

Perfect Cedar Key getaway
We had a wonderful stay at Tranquility. The condo is well equipped with everything that could possibly be needed. It is very inviting and comfortable. It overlooks the Fisherman’s Chanel and bird watching was one of our favorite activities. It is a short walk to the downtown and Dock Street restaurants and shopping. Cedar Key is a great fishing destination. We rented a boat and caught a nice variety. The condo also offered a nice view of the fishing dock on the property, which can be quite entertaining when the fish are biting. We highly recommend Tranquility.
