About Tina Ryan

After 35 years in southeast Florida, finally being able to move permanently to Cedar Key was a big change. I thought it might be hard to adjust to this small town atmosphere, but that hasn't been the case. With the natural beauty of Cedar Key and the abundant wildlife, there is always something to keep me entertained.

Tina Ryan purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Tina Ryan chose Cedar Key

I found Cedar Key while traveling along the west coast and saw a sign 'discover the islands of the Nature Coast.' I spent the day enjoying this quaint little town and kept coming back. When I saw the cottage for sale, I fell in love with it and decided to buy it for my Mom. Since I live 4 blocks away, I thought this would be a perfect arrangement. I furnished it and gave it a personal touch. Unfortunately, Mom was never able to move in. So, I'm offering it for rent to other people so they can visit Cedar Key and enjoy it as much as I do.

What makes this cottage unique

The Sunflower Cottage is a quaint and well-equipped cottage located in the heart of Cedar Key. It's 2 blocks from the grocery store, 2 blocks from the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see and only a short golf cart ride from the main shopping district. The only vacation cottage in Cedar Key that offers a golf cart for you to get around town during your visit. A golf cart alone would cost you $52-$72 per day so my rate of $130 per night is a great bargin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cottage is adorable. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud and we loved having so many channels on the TV...unlike many of the places in Cedar Key. We'll definitely be back to the E Street Cottage. Sara

Sunflower cottage stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sunflower Cottage in Cedar Key. The cottage was well stocked with appropriate cookware and dishes with soft towels. It is located near downtown and 1 block from the UMC Church we like. It is a plus that cottage comes with a golf cart. (Although our dog now wants a ride every afternoon since our stay. The Owner is pleasant and very receptive on any items that need to be taken care of. (only problem was a faulty electrical receptacle).

Quaint cottage

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was adequate for our needs. The layout of the home was a little quirky. Living Room furniture could have been a bit more comfy and updated. Ceiling Fans desperately need to be clean. Loved that there is no carpet on the floors.

We enjoyed the use of the golf cart. The sunsets were stunning, we saw dolphins from the fishing pier, had wonderful seafood at Steamers.

Visiting Cedar Key was a last minute decision when our plans had to change. We had a relaxing time in this unique little fishing village.
