Overview

Safety Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Coastal Living In Downtown Safety Harbor, Florida

The comfortable elegance of 'Duval House', Seadog Cottages' newest and most exclusive vacation home, welcomes visitors with style and personality that will exceed expectations.

This new-construction, two-bedroom, two-bath, open-floor plan home offers vaulted ceilings, custom furnishings, four flat screen TVs, wireless, custom ceiling fans, covered parking, plus 300 s.f. screen porch for outdoor living, grilling and quiet unwinding.

The bright colors, plush and eclectic furnishings, 1,000-count sheets, fully-stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, tropical landscaping and location (two blocks off Main Street and easy walking distance to outstanding restaurants, shops, bars, and parks) delivers big-time 'wow factor'.

Nothing was overlooked in design and preparation of this vacation home and 'go the extra mile' was Rule One for construction and design decisions.

This is a 'must see' getaway site; perfect for vacations, extended-stay winter visitors, temporary job-relocation or traveling business professionals.

You may never want to leave the lazy comfort but if you must, it is a short walk to famous Safety Harbor Spa, Starbucks, quaint bungalow restaurants, salons, shops, wine bars, pizza, ice cream, and local hangouts. Enjoy morning sunrise walks to Safety Harbor City Marina and Fishing Pier. Ride bikes on the wide sidewalks that border waterfront Bayshore Blvd. and stretch to historic 122-acre Philippe Park.

Beaches, upscale shopping and food stores, golf courses, fishing, attractions and Tampa International Airport are all within easy driving distance. Major League Baseball spring training games - Phillies, Blue Jays and Yankees -- are minutes away.

We are dog friendly.

Sit. Stay. Relax.

About The Owner

After 25 years living in South Tampa we were ready to experience our love for Key West living and found it in Safety Harbor. Mick (retired sports writer) and Desanya (Desi) working commercial property manger look forward to welcoming guests in this new- construction home. Our family includes rescued Border Collies Truman, Mallory & Fausto with Golden Doodle Louie. We are living our dream in downtown Safety Harbor, walking to the marina every morning to see the sunrise and be able to walk to wonderful restaurants and bars. As the locals like to say, 'It's Mayberry on the Bay!'

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2013

Why The Owner chose Safety Harbor

We wanted and found a small-town waterfront-village with the benefits of a metropolitan area. Just 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport, 20 minutes from white sandy beaches, and upscale shopping.

We reserved Duval House while it was being built ... we were NOT disappointed. We stayed for 10 weeks and did not want to leave!! Perfect in every way from the well equipped kitchen, decor of entire house, private patio yard, lanai, and totally FUN environment. Our hosts were the best and our every request or question was met with unreserved generosity and thoughtfulness. I look forward seeing them again one day ...and to returning to Safety Harbor whenever that may happen!

Duval House

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is Wow! This place is absolutely perfect in every way. The house is wonderful. Desi and Mick are just the right balance of available but give you your space. The town of Safety Harbor is a real gem. Lots to do but quiet, walkable, lots of parks, etc etc. Of course we plan to return many times in the future but if you are looking for a great place to stay, I just cannot imagine you doing better We have stayed in many VRBO homes over our years of travel and found none better than this)/ Oh, and the dog friendly part. We have three spoiled dogs (well behaved). Desi and Mick have four (VERY well behaved). They understand responsible dog owners and we were so grateful that they were willing to accomodate us. What else? Mannatees, bike rides, beaches, fishing, many great bars and restaurants within walking distance, and the Safety Harbor Spa......What a find!

Wow!! You don’t have to walk into The Duval House to realize that this is really a special refreshing place. We felt like we were walking into the cover of a ‘Coastal Living’ magazine. The Duval House entices you in and, once inside, you would not believe how splendid this property is. Absolute refinement at its best. The kitchen was stocked to the “T” with everything you could imagine you would need. And by fully stocked, I mean items were carefully selected to add to the coastal ambience stay. Nothing mix matched here. Just like you would see staged in a magazine. Perfect. And you would not believe the furnishings! Talk about comfortable elegance. Especially the beds and bedding which were utterly gorgeous! You wouldn’t find anything like this in some of the finest resort hotels. The coastal decor flavor brought us to a distant place that we had not experience. Pure comfort and style. The walk-in showers and bathrooms were elegantly stocked with fine thick resort style towels. They were stocked with all the amenities one would need to refresh. Each area of the house had its own flat screen TV, including the screened porch outside. And each area of the house provided its own privacy in a special way. I especially took pleasure in the furnished outdoor patio for relaxing, reading, and an occasional breakfast. The landscaping and care that Mick takes in maintaining it is impeccable. The fauna here is simply amazing and intriguing. Its like walking into a Secret Garden with water features to sooth and winding paths of flowering shrubs and trees to capture your imagination. From a tall grove of Bamboo, peacefully tolling against each other in the breeze, to the rare climbing night-blooming cactus near the screened back patio. The cactus blooms once or twice a year and only at night, withering the next morning. It was our pleasure to see the spectacle during our stay. Safety Harbor is a delightful town and was a pleasurable walk right around the corner. There is something for everyone here to keep you entertained and explore your interests. Desi and Mick thought of everything here. You could tell that they put careful thought and preparation into the necessities, and then went above and beyond that. They created an “Experience”. Our stay was pure comfort, pleasure, and relaxation. We have never seen anything like it in our travels. The vacation rental business could undoubtedly take a lesson from Desi and Mick on how to do it right.

Perfect

The Duval House is perfection! The house is absolutely beautiful and has everything you would ever need in a vacation home. Everything was thought through very carefully when designing this home. It was very clean, cozy and comfortable. Our family felt right at home, and enjoyed our stay so much that we didn't want to leave. It is pet friendly, too. This means so much to us since we travel everywhere with our small dogs. The owners are so welcoming and generous. They even provided us with a private pass to Honeymoon Island which we loved! It's private, and we loved not dealing with the hassle of parking at Clearwater Beach. I love paddle boarding and it was perfect for that, too! I even paddled along side several dolphins. How awesome is that? You also can't beat the location, you can walk and bike to everything you need in the lovely town of Safety Harbor. The house, the hospitality, and the location made for a perfect vacation. We will definitely be back!
