FOOTSTEPS TO THE BAY

Safety Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy The Charm Of Safety Harbor Just Footsteps To The Bay.

Enjoy the charm of Safety Harbor. This recently furnished vacation rental home is just 5 houses from the bay and within walking distance of Safety Harbor's great restaurants and shops.

Centrally located with easy access to the two area airports (20 mins to either Tampa International Airport or St Pete/Clearwater Airport) and beaches (20 mins to spectacular Clearwater Beach).

Walk 15 minutes (8 blocks) along Tampa Bay to the Safety Harbor Spa, fishing pier, marina and Main Street. With all the wonderful new places to eat, there is now something for everyone. If you happen to be here on the 3rd Friday of the month, enjoy Safety Harbor's 3rd Friday outdoor street festival with live music at the gazebo and street vendors (food and arts/crafts)

Walk 5 minutes along Tampa Bay to the south entrance of Phillippe Park (walking, biking, picnic areas, small beach area, boat ramp, Indian burial grounds and Count Phillippe's grave).

If you can live without a dishwasher, this cozy clean home should have just about everything else you might need to make your stay comfortable.

This home sleeps up to 6 people (two bedrooms plus sleeper sofa in the family room).

I moved to Safety Harbor with the purchase of this home in 1996. I fell in love with Safety Harbor and made it my home for 18 years. My neighbors have become my family here. I love being outdoors and the weather in Florida and the beaches make an outdoor lifestyle unbeatable. When I'm not working, you can most likely find me on the tennis courts.

Safety Harbor is a unique blend of small town with easy access to airports, downtown Tampa and the beaches. What a great little corner of the world this is.

This home is tucked away in a little neighborhood just 5 houses from the bay. I have loved being able to walk along Bayshore to Phillippe Park, the Safety Harbor Spa, the fishing pier (where you can often see Manatees) and the marina or any of the restaurants and bars that have cropped up on Main Street.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 2 nights in Lori’s house and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The house was very, very clean and it had everything we needed. The location is quiet and it was exactly what we wanted. Safety Harbor is a gem of a little town (17,000 population) with at least a dozen restaurants; we recommend Athens for breakfast, Whistle Stop for lunch, and Green Springs Bistro for dinner. Safety Harbor is just across the causeway from Tampa and it’s also close to Clearwater, St Petersburg, and everything else in the Tampa area. We definitely plan to stay again when we visit Tampa.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5
This house was perfect for our Spring Training trip. We had two couples and the house was great. Very clean and comfortable, in a very quiet neighborhood, but very close to all the restaurants downtown.We would recommend this to all our friends. Thanks for the great stay!

PEACH OF A STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had the best time and adventure here. Lori provided bikes and we explored the nearby park and quaint down town. The pier in town rewarded us with views of Manatee, Dolphins and Stingrays . The accommodations were great and we loved the pillow top king size bed after a long day of discovery's. We enjoyed the barbeque and Lanai and friendly neighbors. Thank you for the fishing contacts it was great and the "Specs" were great eating. Lori provided some wonderful restaurants to share with our friends. We look forward to next year.
