Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear John & Valerie - My sister and I enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. This is our second stay here. You've done a great job with this house. It is such a pleasure to stay here. I love the fact that everything is so immaculate! There was nothing that we wanted or needed that you didn't have here. I sure hope we left everything in the house to your liking. We sure to hope to have the opportunity to stay here again in the future. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!

WE LOVE THIS COTTAGE.

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here twice now with our dogs and just love it. Valerie and John are outstanding owners and very helpful when we need help. We had some car issues on the last visit and they were there for us almost immediately! Valerie has left a special treat for us when we arrived each time and it makes me feel so welcomed. The house is very clean and comfortable. The location is outstanding. It is also roomy. I feel rejuvenated when we leave.

My husband and I spend a lovely month in this very comfortable home (while our friends and family were caught in the polar vortex up north). We really can't say enough good things about it. The house is very comfortably furnished (a washer & dryer makes life so easy) and we found the owner to be very helpful and accommodating. She was a dream to work with! And the house itself is an incredible value and it is very pet friendly! Unfortunately, it is already booked for the same time next year when we had hoped to come back for 2 months!
This house is ideally located and we were really spoiled. There is a lovely art park directly across the street and the bay is about a block away with a very long, usually quiet road running a good length for leisurely walking. There's plenty of land around the house to walk your dog. Town is a 5 minute walk...library, spa, Starbucks, Cold Stone Creamry, and lots of yummy little restaurants. This is the first time we have rented a home in walking distance to so much and it has spoiled us.... we will never rent again in any area where we cannot walk to shops and restaurants.
If you do go out in the car, Fresh market, only a very short drive from the house is well worth a trip -- wish we had one back home. And you must try Mazzaro's Italian Market in St. Pete... daily handmade pasta and fresh roasted coffee beans, a wine room, every cooking item you will ever need from Italy and the BEST pastry counter in the world (try the Italian Rum Cream Cake $4 for a piece about 4x5 inches). There's St. Pete's Saturday market on the pier and up in Tarpon Springs are Hellas Bakery & Restaurant and Mama's Greek Cuisine (try them both). Over in Dunedin is Casa Tina for more-than-you-can-eat authentic Mexican food. For a non-food adventure, there's the lovely Florida Botanical Garden in Largo with a natural habitat area. And there's always a festival going on somewhere in the area. At John's Pass Village and Boardwalk in Madeira Beach, there's plenty of shopping and eating to pass an afternoon and, should one be so inclined, there are fishing trips that can be scheduled right from the boardwalk. And right next to Fresh Market on Enterprise is the Enterprise dog park.... probably one of the best in the country... with acres and acres of fenced-in wooded land and walking paths, dog fountains, a separate agility area and even an area to rinse off your dog if they become too adventuresome.
Thank you, Valerie!!!

WONDERFUL VACATION PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at this wonderful retreat in Safety Harbor, FL. Spent minimum time there as I was out & about w/ friends, sight-seeing, etc. in Dunedin, Tarpon, Dade City, New Port Richey, St. Pete. All the amenities I needed, privacy, and a safe haven to call it a day. The owners are readily available but I did not need anything so did not see them this time. The washer/dryer were a nice plus this visit, as is the new park across the street. I love Safety Harbor. Wish I had never moved from here! Make sure you visit the local restaurants for some excellent food. Discovered historic St. Pete this trip - awesome! Excellent dining, museums, truly enjoyed my 3 days there. The sugar-free chocolate gelato @ Paciugo was heavenly! Best blue-cheese burger - The Hangar! Sally at the St. Pete. Museum of History is so very pleasant. Made our visit there even more special. Safety Harbor Grill still has the best steak, breakfast @ Paradise, lunch @ Christina's in NPR, Kafe Kokopelli & the Angel Tea Room in Dade City are not to be missed! Want a real turkey burger - The Vinoy Alfresco's. My friend said it was delish. Smelled like Christmas dinner turkey! I had the fish tacos - and you've got to try the soup! Shopping? You betcha! Safety Harbor has some neat shops. Dunedin - I spent the entire day there & shopped til I dropped! Dragonfly Garden had the most wonderful hummingbird feeder! The hummers love it! The ladies in Dunedin Beads were most helpful - a lot of souvenirs here for friends back home, created some earrings for myself! Had a delicious quiche at Cappuccino's. Enchanted Spirits is a neat shop - bought some rose quartz drops - the ladies at Dunedin Beads helped me make them into earrings. Gotta check 'em out! Have to mention Hellas in Tarpon Springs - great food, wonderful bakery! I should be a restaurant critic, for as you can see, I love to eat! Good friends, wonderful memories, great times together! Wish I could check back into this retreat tomorrow! Looking forward to my next visit!

FANTASTIC STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The place was perfect for our family, everything was clean, very comfortable and relaxing. We had a fantastic stay! Safety Harbor is a great little town and you can walk from the house to go out to dinner or grab a coffee or just go for a walk along the bay. It's also a short drive from Clearwater Beach and Honeymoon Island, which are beautiful beaches. House was fully equipped so we didn't have to worry about any linens or utensils. The backyard is great for grilling and our two dogs enjoyed running around the property. Thanks for your hospitality, we will definitely be back!

GREAT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful 4 days stay in Safety Harbor. We LOVED the house! It was so nice, comfortable, clean, well-furnished and so convenient to everything we wanted to see and do. The home sits along the creek and is surrounded by beautiful oak trees and well-kept grounds; and it was an easy walk to downtown, which we enjoyed ice cream, coffee, cute shops and restaurants. It was exactly the way it was described and more. Such a great time, we will be back!!!

Thanks for everything!

WONDERFUL STAY IN YOUR LOVELY HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. It was everything as described and more! The home was spotless, clean, spacious and very confortable. The location was top notch, we couldn't ask for anything better. We walked everywhere and enjoyed riding our bikes on the trail along the water. The new park across the street was great, but our family really enjoyed the creek running through the property. We ended our stay with a family cook out and loved it! Wonderful experience and we can't wait to be back!!

Thanks so much for your great hospitality,
Jody & Dino Perez
