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!

Very Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Even before arriving, Beverly had made me feel relaxed. On the day we arrived, she was there to greet us with a hug, and we instantly felt at home. Once she showed us around, we were left to enjoy the home as if it was our own. This was felt even more when Kwai would come outside to visit us. The home in itself was clean and bright. The view of the sunrise over the Bay from the master bedroom was beautiful. We were travelling with my friend's 94 year old Dad, so the elevator was perfect. There were five of us, and we had plenty of room. Sitting outside in the screened in porch every morning and night was the perfect place to regroup. The pool and Tiki bar felt like our own private oasis, and I even got my husband to go in the hot tub. The house is 30 minutes to Clearwater Beach, and a scenic ride over the bridge to Tampa. We were also content to stay close by in Safety Harbor. We saw manatee off the pier, and the food and atmosphere at Bar Fly was excellent! Thank you again Beverly and family, we are already planning our next trip to visit you.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of 6 and had plenty of room for all. Jack and Beverly met us on arrival to show us around and make sure we were settled. The property is quiet and secluded and the backyard pool and patio is a fantastic Oasis. Our group had a great time and is looking forward to coming back in the future.

Florida Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is breathtaking; first words out of my mouth as we drove up to it. We came here for our 10 year anniversary and this location fulfilled all that I wanted for this important trip. It had it all; a pool, lounge area, Jacuzzi, views and a tiki bar! Not to mention the townhouse amenities indoors.

It has everything you need for a trip! Dish washer, towels, kitchen appliances, dryer/washer machine; etc. Plus the owners, Beverly and Jack are super accommodating and are always there to assist you with a smile! They are friendly, helpful and lovely people! We were happy to meet them!

We WOULD recommend this location to everyone! If you want a trip of a lifetime, this is a MUST stay at home! Swimming, lounging, relaxing with beautiful views; it has it all! My family and I enjoyed ourselves there and we are already looking forward towards our next visit!

No Chance of Disappointment

  • 5 of 5

You will love this place as there is nothing not to love. The home itself is in excellent condition and very well supplied. The huge lanai with views of Tampa Bay and the pool is somewhere you'll spend hour after hour. The pool is big, beautiful, and kept perfectly clean. You'll enjoy the brand new outdoor kitchen with gas grill, extra burners, sink, refrigerator, radio, tv, and tiki bar. You'll also enjoy the hot tub. The living accommodations are on the second floor but in addition to the stairs there is an elevator which makes getting luggage and groceries upstairs a breeze. We've spent 4 months here over the past 2 years and will be back next year for 10 more weeks. Our family would be devastated if we didn't.

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.
