Travelers' Choice
Cedar Key, Florida is reminiscent of days gone by. A quiet fishing village that exudes Old Florida charm, Cedar Key is one of several barrier islands off the Gulf Coast and remains unspoiled by the commercialism of the tourism industry. In Cedar Key you will fall in love with the natural beauty and friendly faces that make up the laid back community. The friendly, laid back culture of the island matches perfectly with the feeling you get when you arrive at Pirates Cove. Brian and Lisa purchased Pirates Cove in 2018 and are intent on it remaining a family owned and operated business. It will always remain the same beloved Old Florida retreat, and as Lisa and Brian add their own personal touches you will continue to see their love of the area reflected in the property. At Pirates Cove you will enjoy beautiful sunrises over the bay. Each cottage is equipped to make your stay feel like a home away from home. All guests are welcome to use the canoe or you can bring kayaks to explore the mangrove islands right from our dock. Tide depending, you can fish off of our two docks and since our cottages offer kitchens, outdoor grills, as well as fish cleaning stations, you can clean and prepare your catch for the freshest seafood meal on the island. We are also a short stroll to the unique shops and chef-inspired restaurants of Cedar Key.

What a wonderful stay we had at Pirates Cove. Lisa the owner was so sweet and charming, always greeted us with a smile and always asked if we needed anything. The rooms are cozy with all the amenities you need. We stayed in Cottage 4 which had a full kitchen ,screened back porch with a dock and water view. The bed was very comfortable and there was a ceiling fan along with 2 portable fans. The court yard has tables for outdoor dinning and 2 grills. At night the court yard lights up and there are fans to give a breeze. They have bicycles and golf carts for rent along with kayaks and fishing poles. The office also has DVD's , books and games and the rooms have limited cable, ( my channel was missing ) . For about $100 a night Pirates Cove is a great Value. When we return we will stay here again

We just had a great stay! Cottages are very clean with a comfortable bed. The courtyard is a great place to hang out and enjoy the weather. The owners were onsite everyday and very friendly. She was even willing to dry our clothes after we arrived on our motorcycles in a rain storm. We also rented the golf cart which was a great way to see the island (and much cheaper than the carts offered downtown).

What a find! We had to switch to plan B for vacation this year and it gave us an opportunity to discover some places we always wanted to go. We stayed only 2 nights in Cottage #7 but it was excellent! Although the cottage is small, it is CLEAN and comfortable. The owners Lisa and Brian are so friendly and genuinely care about their guests and the quality of their stay. Cottage #7 has an awesome sunrise view from the screen porch as well as the attached community deck. We also rented a golf cart from Pirates Cove one day while we were there to explore the island and have some fun. (They also have bike rentals but it was too hot for that!) Website has pics of all the cottages and some floor plans. They have books, games, and DVDs to encourage disconnecting from electronics and connecting with each other! Rates are very reasonable too!

The owners - Brian and Lisa are the absolute best. We had an amazing time during our visit in June 2020. The amount of care and dedication, both to their cottages and their guests is nothing like we’ve experienced before in our family vacations across the Southeast. We can’t wait to come back to Cedar Key, but also back to Pirates Cove in the next year!
