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! :-)

Mother's Day Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected and more, it's even more beautiful in person. We spent our days relaxing by the pool and enjoying the view of the bay which is gorgeous. I have to mention how comfortable the beds are! Also, I loved how the townhouse is so close to everything. The only sad part was we didn't stay longer but we will be back very soon. Thank you Beverly, Jack, and Kwai!

My family and I have been here nearly two months. Jack and Beverly do everything possible to ensure you have the best time possible and are not disappointed in any way. Everything about the place is top of the line. There doesn't seem to be a day that goes by without some sort of work or improvement being done. Feel confident that your stay here will be one of the best you've ever had.

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.
