Guestbook comments from the owner

Just had a wonderful week in Safety Harbor. We've rented several vacation homes in the past and this property was the best, hands down! Outside was paradise, the photos do not fully reflect that. The pool was like a spa and we enjoyed the hot tub which was new only a few weeks ago. It's clear that Jack and Beverly pay very close attention to the overall look of the property and the comfort of their guests. There were bikes to use and we regretted not having time to put the kayaks in the bay. The house was beautiful with an upstairs porch to die for and perfect for morning coffee. Inside was spotless and had everything you'd ever need. My sons (17 and 12) each had their own space and even when my sister visited there was always plenty of room. We really had no issues when we were there but Jack and Beverly were attentive without being intrusive. They were incredibly flexible with our dates when our plans changed. Safety Harbor is a wonderful location that satisfied my oldest son's need for skateboard parks and my youngest one's need for city life. We were on the beach in Clearwater in only 20 minutes and Dunedin in less than that with it's bike path and great restaurants. We loved Ybor City, Big Cat Rescue, the beach and that one glorious day when we let the oldest take the car and relaxed by the pool the entire day! We'd rent again in a heartbeat. If you're looking for a "sure thing", rent this property, you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a spectacular time staying here. Beverly met us on arrival and explained how to use everything, especially the pool, outdoor lights and the brand new outdoor kitchen! OMG- the accommodations were perfect for us. My wife and I have bum knees (her's is a replacement) and the elevator was a very welcome perk. We had plenty of room for us and all of our visiting family. The pool and hot tub were perfectly relaxing with a nice waterfall for ambiance and the outdoor kitchen on the deck next to the pool made entertaining and relaxing a breeze. The weather was a perfect 85-92 degrees during the day and a comfortable 75 at night and was a real treat for us coming from the North where its still in the 40's at night. The air conditioning worked great and all the inside accommodations were very clean and comfortable. Our hosts were very respectful of our privacy and we really appreciated that. Kwai, the family pooch was so sweet, we loved it when he came out to hang with us for a while. The outdoor kitchen and bar are new and we were the luck ones to try it out for the first time. It was nice to have a refrigerator to stock with beer etc. and included a sink, entertainment center with TV and a bar-b-que with stove. At night the landscape lighting made the back yard and pool very relaxing. Overall, Safety Harbor is really nice and generally quiet especially at night and in the early morning. I mean, its right next to Clearwater but without any crowds. We liked that. Plenty of places to eat and to explore. Never a dull moment unless we wanted one. We even went on a fishing charter and caught a 5 ft., 100 lb. Tarpon.... what a thrill! In the end, we felt this was one of our best vacations and loved having all the amenities of "home". We highly recommend these hosts and will definitely look forward to returning next year. Thanks Beverly, Jack and Kwai for your role in our wonderful vacation! :-)

awesome place

  • 5 of 5

My whole family loved this place. The photos do not do this home justice, it was a lot nicer than we expected. I've never been to a vacation house that was so accommodating and supplied absolutely everything the way this place did. All we had to bring was the food. The owners are very nice and accommodating, they were both a pleasure to deal with. The pool area was so relaxing and fun. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of linens. I can't wait to stay here again next time I come to Florida!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at this townhouse! It was very clean, comfortable and very well furnished! There was plenty of room for our family of five. The kitchen is well stocked. Also, many little extras that aren't always included in rentals(coffee, detergent, shampoo, soap, etc.) were available for use. The beds are very comfortable. The backyard area, with large pool and Tiki bar, is beautiful and amazing--we spent a lot of time relaxing outdoors. We also enjoyed the view of Tampa Bay from the hot tub, master bedroom and deck areas. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. We would not hesitate to stay her again! Thanks, Jack and Beverly!

This is just a wonderful place to stay! The townhome is beautiful. I can't say enough about the terrific owners, Beverly, Jack and Kwai. They go out of their way to make sure you have everything you might need while staying here. It's all the little extra things they have supplied in the home that was amazing to us. Make sure to check in before you go to the store. You might just find it already there. They took very good care of us. The pool area is to die for. Even though it rained, we still took advantage of this area. Very peaceful, safe, and friendly area to stay. Loved having the elevator to take our groceries and luggage up. Granddaughter loved the bicycles that are provided. Even rode to the nearby park which is beautiful. We took walks every morning just to take in the scenery. The pictures do not do this place justice. It's even more inviting in person. I plan on going back some time in the future. Thank you again Beverly, Jack and Kwai.... You are a rare find of people in these times.

What a unexpected surprise for us to receive!. How very "Sweet" of you! Jack and I are so grateful for you and your family being respectful guests that you enjoyed our private property.

These accommodations were perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Florida for a family wedding. But, we were really in desparate need of R&R. We couldn't have found a better place or better hosts. Thank you Jack and Beverly for providing such a clean, well-equipped home-away-from-home for us. The accommodations had so much of what we needed and the few additional things we needed (food) were near by!

Already trying to figure out when we'll be able to come for another stay. Joyce & Bill

It give us such pleasure to know that this vacation time worked out just prefect for you!! You had your own "oasis" on this private property, so it made you feel you escaped the busyness of life! We work hard to make the home comfortable for our guests and it was our pleasure that you mentioned all you needed to bring was food. "Very Cool"!! It makes ones vacation more relaxing when there are not items you are in need of or wish you had. Mission accomplished on our part! Thank you! Jack & I can not wait till you visit agaon!!

The Safety Harbor area is rich with cultural and social activities. The Chamber of Commerce sponsors many events (Italian Festival, Seafood Festival, Chalk Art, Song Fest, etc.) as well as a Third Friday of each month music series. Additionally, this paradise is situated reasonably close to Bush Gardens, Disney World, Lego Land, Sea World, Universal Studios, and Epcot thus the area offers fantastic vacation opportunities for all ages. The town of Tarpon Springs is north of Safety Harbor and is known as the sponge capital of the world. The old world atmosphere of a fishing village is combined with great food and numerous unique shops and sponge outlets. To the south of Safety Harbor located in Largo a United States War Museum provides insights into each branch of the services and the engagements spanning from World War I through the present day. Clearwater Beach, about 20 minutes to the west, boasts to be one of the top five beaches in the United States. In addition to enjoying the beach, visitors may also participate in gulf fishing, boat cruises, dinner cruises, and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium home of "Winter". Three airports (Tampa, St. Pete, and Clearwater) are within 10 miles of the property and provide easy access to the area.
