Are you looking for a little Tranquility in your next Gulf Coast vacation? You’ve found Cedar Key Tranquility – our vacation rental (TRULY!!!) by owner condo at Old Fenimore Mill. We operate Tranquility outside of the management company and as a result are more affordable and responsive to our guests’ needs! We hope you’re ready to take a break from the world and enjoy our closeup view of paradise.

Tranquility is more than a name… our goal in furnishing Cedar Key Tranquility was to impart a feeling of peace and tranquility. In fact, that’s why we named the place – “Tranquility“. A blending of contemporary organic themes and traditional Japanese design elements lends just the right touch of “Zen” to the space without being intrusive. The decor is a perfect compliment to the stunning view awaiting just outside the door on our private balcony. Enjoy luxury accommodations while you delight in birding from your private balcony.

Cedar Key Tranquility is equipped for your comfort and convenience, our two bedroom, two bath, self-catered vacation home is a corner unit on the third (top) floor with a private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and Cedar Key’s backwaters of Waccasssassa Bay.

We know from personal experience that it’s much easier to relax in the serenity of the setting knowing things are humming along nicely in the outside world. We provide free WiFi (6 Mbps – U-verse WiFi), a flat screen monitor to connect to your laptop (if you choose), keyboard, and printer/fax/scanner are available for guest use. Just plug in your laptop and go!

Experience the best view of the backwaters of Cedar Key, Florida while you relax in comfort on Tranquility’s balcony with balcony height table and chairs. One guest called our view “Cedar Key’s Early Bird Show” – dozens of Florida’s wading birds arrive daily to feed below the balcony and roost in the mangroves at night. You’ll love our fan for keeping you cool in summer and pull-down blinds to help you enjoy coffee with the sunrise. Watch the crabbers tend their traps, the fisher persons on the private fishing dock for Fenimore Mill guests, and the birds and boats go by. Evenings are wonderful with a Gulf breeze and sweet Cedar Key clams cooked in our well-equipped kitchen. Toast the Cedar Key, FL sunset with a beverage and know that tomorrow, you’ll get to do it again!

Our Cedar Key, FL vacation rental’s upscale accommodations include free streaming movies and music via Roku; free long distance calling to the US and Canada; stainless kitchen appliances; and a flat screen TV in the master bedroom. A cd player stereo is available and we have a small eclectic collection of music, DVDs, and books to please most. We also provide a selection of games and puzzles for those occasionally rainy days or your choice of lazy days. All televisions in Tranquility are equipped with Direct TV. A full size washer and dryer are available for your use.

Our living room seats four adults comfortably; our dining room also seats six. Our kitchen is outfitted with dinnerware and glassware for eight and a variety of utensils and cooking pots and pans to help you prepare a seafood feast! For the grillmaster, charcoal grills are provided behind the building at ground level.

You’ll sleep in comfort in our Cedar Key rental home in our plush top king bed. The master bath offers extra counter space to spread out your stuff. The guest bedroom has a queen bed and the full bath is across the hall. Both baths have plenty of soft towels and wall-mounted hairdryers.
