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 Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying Do Not Hesitate in Renting this Wonderful Property. The Grounds of this Townhouse are Picture Perfect. Our Son got married on April 22 at Safety Harbor Resort and we were looking for a home base and gathering spot for many out of Town guests, as this was a destination Wedding.The owners Beverly and Jack went out of their way to make sure every detail was covered. We communicated back and forth many times and they had everything we discussed waiting for us as we arrived, like extra crock pots, coffee makers and such. We hosted a Wedding Cocktail party the night before the Wedding around the fabulous pool area and Beverly and Jack had folding tables, coolers, extension cords and everything we needed to host a wonderful event. I can go on forever about this property being the perfect home away from home because it was. We now consider Beverly and Jack friends who helped make one of the most important weeks in our life extra special. We Loved every minute of our stay at this wonderful home on picture perfect tropical grounds with the most wonderful owners we could of asked for. Pure Perfection from beginning to end.

Fondly, Chris Carol and Family

Famiy Vacation "No Worries"

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Safety Harbor. The townhouse was more than I could have expected .Jack and Beverly was so down to earth , and helpful in every way . We enjoyed the pool and the townhouse we didn't want to leave. We went to the beach a couple of days , in which we found was rather close distance. The weather was perfect , for the beach, pool and grilling .I highly recommend staying at this townhouse. Thank you Beverly and Jack for making our vacation less stress and worry free. Hope to visit again.

The property is beautiful! The building design is exceptional and the surrounding area is gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to see Beverly when we pulled into the parking lot....huge area! Everything about the rental, the pool, grounds, etc. was more than we could have hoped for in a sight-unseen-vacation. Absolutely everything except your clothes is available in their townhome! may need a few groceries, but you can have a cup of coffee before you go to the store. Hopefully we'll get to go back in the near future! It would be a beautiful place for a small wedding. The deck and hot tub area is something you might see in a Southern Living Magazine....there is a huge tree growing out of the floor with sprawling branches laced with spanish moss. We walked to the Safety Harbor park; walked almost to town! Driving to Dunedin and Safety Harbor just to look around and shop was so much fun. A huge thank you to Beverly and Jack!

Lovely condo with a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! My wife and two teenage daughters stayed 4 days. All the rooms were large with 5 star amenities. We were a little concerned about the sofa sleeper but it just may have been the most comfortable bed ever. The pool area was a blast. Very high end with all kinds of floats and things to do. In the mornings my wife and I enjoyed coffee and tea on the enclosed patio looking out at Tampa bay. The master also had amazing views of Tampa bay. Full kitchen stocked with every imaginable accessory you can think of. Best feature had to be the elevator to bring out bags and groceries up and down. Can't thank Beverly and Jack enough for making our Florida trip perfect. Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank You for a spectacular "Review" of our townhouse and how much you enjoyed it ! I understand you and your family used the bicycles to ride to Philippe park, only 1 mile away and rode to downtown Safety Harbor for the Music festival going on. Which is only 3 miles away, and there is usually always something going on in Safety Harbor. Thank You for bringing up the sofa sleeper, guests feel that is going to be NOT any fun and I am so glad your daughter ENJOYED the memory foam mattress in the sofa sleeper room with the awesome view of the swimming pool and sliding glass door out to the screened in patio!! Thank You and we can not wait till your return to visit your son in Tampa! Jack & Beverly and Kwai

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The townhome was awesome. Everything worked well and the place was very clean and well organized. Beverly gave us a quick tour when we arrived and she was full of energy and easy to be around. The setting is peaceful and the pool is just as good as it looks in the photos.

Great place for a family to stay. Much like home, clean, comfortable, with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Beverly and Jack have a lovely property that is well kept and tucked away. The pool and spa were a daily ritual for my son and I, a perfect way to cool off at the end of a jam packed day of playing around the Tampa Bay area. The interior of the townhouse is comfortable and cozy. Absolutely no problems with any appliances or air conditioning - which is a blessing when it is in the 90's every day! Jack explained the workings of everything when we arrived and even though they live right next to where we were staying, we rarely saw them, I mention this for those vacationers who like privacy. Many nights my kids and I stayed in and made dinner and I have to mention this fact because I have rented homes several times in the past, I really appreciate that the pots, pans, knives and other kitchen necessities were in great shape! The property itself is in a wonderful spot, centrally located to so many things to do in Tampa. Easy to get to the beach, downtown, Ybor City and even the USF area. The townhouse has an elevator which was such an interest to my kids! It came in handy for getting our luggage up to the house as well as groceries. I would definitely recommend this property if you are vacationing in the Tampa Bay area. Wonderful!

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.
