Photos of Condo Loft Rental Unit 327

In April of 2009 we were in Cedar Key directing the refurbishing of the condo unit in Park Place. The entire unit has been repainted, the old carpeting has been replaced, and all the furniture is new -- sofa sleeper, a pair of recliners, entertainment center, large screen television, DVD/VCR player, stereo, floor lamps, Euro-top mattress set, drapes, and bathroom furnishings. Ellen has also been adding decorations, "tchotchkes," and decorator items to give the place her "signature" and make the unit feel more "like being at home" to guests.

The split-level unit is on the third, or top floor of Park Place, and has a loft bedroom on the fourth floor. The condo offers about 700 square feet of living space and endless views out to the Gulf of Mexico. The unit is air conditioned and heated, and cable television and high speed wireless Internet are provided.

The living area flows into the kitchen area and both flow out to the balcony which overlooks the park and ocean front. The queen sofa couch and two recliners offer a conversation area, reading area...

... or a view of the new entertainment center with 32" Sanyo television and DVD/VHS player for your viewing pleasure, with a selection of DVDs and VHS tapes included. There is also a stereo CD player and radio, books to read, decks of playing cards, and board games...

The kitchen has a dinette set, refrigerator/freezer, stove cooktop, cooking utensils, microwave, coffee maker with coffee, creamer, and sugar/sugar substitute, toaster oven, double sink, and the necessary flatware, utensils, cutlery, plates, bowls, cups, pots, and pans. Daily maid service helps keep it tidy.

Park Place has 2 wooden decks at ground level -- one at each end of the building -- and both have charcoal grills for your use. In addition, City Park across the street has pavilions, picnic tables, more grills, and wonderful views.

Also on the main floor is the full bathroom, as seen here, which includes a hair dryer...

The loft bedroom has a retractable privacy screen if someone is using the sofa couch below, and the queen bed sports a new Eurotop mattress set by Serta. You'll find plenty of countertop space, drawers, and a closet for your things, and the television with VHS player and window mounted air conditioner both have remote controls,

Here's the loft over the kitchen, as seen from the balcony...

...and the view of the living area from the loft...

The hall closet has room to hang clothes, room for storage, and also has an iron and ironing board.

The balcony offers a relaxing locale to sit, catch the cool Gulf breeze, and savor the views of the park, beach, and beyond...

This is our 6th time here and we love it! My husband and I just got married in March and we started coming here when we were dating 6 years ago. This is the best little get away and we look forward to coming back soon. Thanks for the great stay and the wonderful hospitality!

We had a great weekend getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Everything here at Park Place was nice! Love how the unit is decorated, the recliners are so very comfortable! The staff was very friendly & helpful. We enjoyed eating @ Frogs Landing and Tony’s. The chocolate truffles bites were amazing! We enjoyed being here and hope to come back again soon. Thanks for having such a nice place to stay!

Thanks so much for making your place so beautiful and comfortable. This is our first time @ Cedar Key. We absolutely loved it. I did not think places like this existed anymore. I am a Brooklyn girl and my husband is from Bushnell and this was a place we could truly enjoy.
-- Mr. and Mrs. McC.
