“We loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

A great place to stay! Right on the beach, not crowded, quiet location and very friendly hosts. We enjoyed an entire week here and loved every minute of it! Located in the middle of the island so it's easy to access shopping, restaurants, etc. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite/room on the beach side! The sound of the waves and the view makes it so worthwhile...

I have been coming to Cedar Cove for years and it just gets better every time. Eric and Jeff and their team are wonderful hosts and I feel more and more at home. We look forward to the next trip every time. I have even brought friends over and they too just adore the beach and the peaceful seaside retreat. The quality of the beach I think is the best in the area. Fine sand - clear azure water! They had done many upgrades in the penthouse that we usually get, including a new Samsung fridge and we really enjoyed those as well. Extremely important too is their recommendations for local seafood are spot on and we truly had the most wonderful dishes with a spectacular view. We loved the very comfortable, super clean, cozy accommodations. It is an annual "must do" for us! Plus I am a fan of photography and had the best time taking shots from the balcony and up and down the beach with the birds. Sunset views every night!! Recently I was there with friends who were doing a sport event in Sarasota and Eric even took the time on his day off to come out and see their event. We really appreciated that he joined us for some sports! If you are looking for a home away from home at the beach this is it!

Room Tip: Beach side rooms have fabulous views and you are right there at the sand. Crossing the street is not...

We had a restful beach getaway. Our place overlooked the gulf with beautiful waterfront sunsets. There are plenty of shopping stops along the way to stock the frig and cooler. We loved the homey Mom and Pop restaurants and shops. There's no problem getting around with bicycle and scooter rentals, and a local free trolley runs all day throughout the island. Will definitely return for a longer stay! Thank you Cedar Cove.

my husband and I spend a few days at Cedar Cove to celebrate my birthday. The site was beautiful--yellow and white tropical décor inside our special small beach house
The kitchen was fully furnished--the staff of the resort responsive to requests, and sooo pleasant and helpful!
The bed was very comfortable, everything was fresh and clean
We would certainly return to Cedar Cove, and recommend it to others

Beach area was wonderful and clean, close proximity to the water, absolutely beautiful water, plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas, refreshing outdoor showers, cute areas with tiki huts, hammocks and barbecues. I loved the beach turtle sign. Shall be making one like it for our Inn. The outdoor murals are also a charming addition.
The staff was congenial, knowledgeable with smiles a plenty.
Within walking distance of restaurants and shopping, but the trollies are free and fun to ride.
Adrian is delightful. Owners and staff go above and beyond to assist.
Perfect beach to sun, unwind and relax.
They provide beach towels which is quite nice.
I like it that they give you your privacy, unless you request something.
We will be returning. We get only one vacation a year, so this time away was very precious to us.

Room Tip: If you are traveling as a couple, get an upstairs suite because little feet might be too noisy for y...

I had the pleasure of enjoying a relaxing escape at Cedar Cove for two days recently, with my niece. We stayed in the Orchid Cottage, and it had everything we needed, was very clean, quiet and pleasant. Cedar Cove is centrally located on the Island and The trolley stop is very close, so you can get to all sorts of restaurants and shops easily. The beach is spectacular (chairs provided), and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again, and hopefully for a longer visit next time.

Room Tip: Our cottage was on the opposite side of the road from the beach, but crossing was not a problem. We...

Again we chose cedar cove and was not disappointed. Eric and the the staff have maintained a level of service and facilities that are amazing. We have stayed in several of the cottages over the years and found them to stay up to date, clean and comfortable. The staff continues to show a high level of commitment to their clients. The entrance to the beach is incredible with the tiki huts and the coconut trees which lead to a large beach front that is never overcrowded. Unbelievable place to go and relax!
