Vacation Gem

  • 5 of 5

We consider ourselves fortunate to have found this vacation gem in the quaint town of Safety Harbor! From the inviting patio in the front of the house to the beautifully renovated kitchen the cottage is exceptionally inviting. The owners make every effort to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. With the spa passes we were able to enjoy the wonderful Safety Harbor Resort and Spa. You won't be disappointed when you rent this enjoyable vacation getaway.

A Great Place To Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly excellent experience. The house was wonderful. Steve and Melissa were amazing hosts. As soon as we walked in the door, we knew we had found a gem of a vacation home. Steve called Shortly after we arrived to make sure we could take advantage of all 'The Blue Heron' had to offer. The quiet neighborhood was a short walk from Downtown Safety Harbor and all it has to offer. We enjoyed walking along South Bayshore Blvd and in the Safety Harbor Marina area. One morning a manatee greeted us as we walked the pier. We loved 'The Blue Heron' and certainly would go back again!

Ideal vacation setting

  • 5 of 5

Our Tampa Bay vacation in S.H. was notably enriched by this fantastic Blue Herron Cottage. It is within walking

distance of Main St. in the center of town with several restaurants and shops. The newly outfitted kitchen would

please any chef du jour with all the best amenities. The cheery bedrooms and seating areas have comfortable

furniture and the front patio is spacious and relaxing. Come as you are and you will fall in love with this inviting property and delightful town.

Lovely quiet area

  • 5 of 5

Charming Florida cottage in a sweet little town in a central location for greater Tampa area exploring. The house was more than fully stocked and we were greeted with a vase of flowers. Bikes and Spa passes were available and there were amazingly good restaurants in town. A nice quiet vacation spot suited us perfectly. Highly recommended!

I'll definitely go back on a regular basis!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, cozy bungalow this is! We sat under the beautiful trees in the front yard every single day and totally enjoyed the many comfy chairs in the front room, the living room, and the TV room. It's instant relaxation here!! The kitchen is absolutely beautiful and so easy to prepare meals, snacks, or whatever in. The location can't be beat. It's very close to the shops and restaurants in town, and we went for an awesome bike ride along the shore and over to Philippe Park. Everything is so convenient. There's a big shower and comfortable beds and the owner is wonderful to deal with. An extra special bonus is a pass to the spa in town! It just doesn't get any better; I did not want to leave.

Enchanting Home

  • 5 of 5

We woke up each morning to the sun rising on the front patio overlooking a beautiful landscaped yard. Lovely home, clean, quiet and comfortable located in the heart of the town of Safety Harbor. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. The spa and library passes were a bonus.
