Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Quiet, clean, well furnished, comfortable, cute,and cozy home!! I spent the month of Feb 2014 in the warm climate escaping the snow and cold riding the bicycle and walking miles and miles every day. It was great to use the Safety Harbor Spa and their new hot tub, pool,sauna, steam room, and I took several exercise classes. I was able to visit Clearwater Beach, downtown Tampa, Dunedin, Sarasota and visit a couple of malls, tried new restaurants, explored neighborhoods. Thank you Steve and Melissa for providing such a nice getaway vacation home. The whole VRBO process was so easy.

Most Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Sooooooooo perfect. It was like going to your family's house, but they weren't there. It was "Make yourself at home away from home" Do not bring anything with you, this house has everything you need, and than some. It is so quiet, (never heard a siren for two weeks,), so peacefull, you'll sleep late for day's. You don't have to drive, Well! maybe to the Supermarket to cook at home, (ten minutes away), or a short drive to Dundein, for awesome sunsets, (adjacent to 'Bon Appetitt'' A very nice Restaurant. Otherwise Main Street is four short blocks away, with many Restaurants. We favored the Nantucket Bucket, Southern Fresh, (absolutely great pan fried chicken), The Sandwhich Shop, and above all else, "Joey's Biscottie", (Eat your cake, yummy). Best desserts ever. Steven is an absolutely wonderful Ambassador, for Safety Harbor. The Resort SPA has a great buffet on Sunday's. All of the above are very reasonable. The Library is terrific. Don't bring a lot of clothes, just shorts, tee shirts and of course a bathing suit. Everywhere is casual. Steve and Mellissa are very much 'straight shooters'. "What they say is what they mean", Words fail to describe how comfortable we were. We're loking foward to 'home sitting' for them again.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Steve and Melissa's cottage for three months while our house was being built. It was PERFECT!! The location is within walking distance of great restaurants and the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa which we used and enjoyed almost every day. The house is beautifully furnished and the kitchen has everything you could need. We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
Through Internet we have found Melissa's and Steve's place in Safety Harbor. A contact between us was quickly made and we found ourselves in their place from nov. 28 - dec. 18, 2012.
We have never stayed in a more charming and a more complete place!! We have not only rented a house, but also a peaceful neighborhood, friendly people around us, use of Spa, Library and easy access to roads leading to all over Florida. Definitely a place to come back to!!!

A pure delight

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Heron is even nicer than advertised. We thoroughly enjoyed our month (February, '12) and hate the fact that today is our last here. We made good use of the spa passes, and took many invigorating walks in the surrounding area, as well as short drives to nearby towns (Dunedin, Clearwater, Tampa, etc.). The kitchen is fully equipped, the rooms are comfortable and cozy, and the neighborhood is quier. You can even get excellent pizza: it was almost like being in Boston's North End but a lot warmer.

Simply Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
I don't actually want to write this review. Because I want to keep this darling bungalow a secret!!! Since the owners are so thoughtful and generous I can't not write this review. The home is clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and every amenity one could need on a vacation is provided. We loved the neighborhood--it's old Florida with beautiful flora views from every window. We used the library cards for books and to rent movies--big bonus. There are charming small businesses to explore in Safety Harbor. We enjoyed daily walks. Thank you Melissa and Steve for sharing your magical home with us and thinking of EVERYTHING!!! Can't wait to come back.
