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!

Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

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.

Safety Harbor Revisited

  • 5 of 5

Beverly and Jack were the most gracious hosts. Nothing we asked for was too much for them. Their house is lovely and so well equipped that we were able to host two dinner parties and only needed to buy food. We enjoyed every moment at their home and have already booked for a longer visit next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a wonderful "review" of your stay!! That is a "Huge" compliment , that you two are coming back next year and staying a month! So many guests say it it is so much more private and and it has so many pluses after they arrive that they see and enjoy as yourselves!! The guests that are here now booked 2 months for next year also. That makes us feel so awesome and we want our guests to have a very relaxing and memorable time here and the area! Jack & I can not wait to see you next year!

Our tropical home away from home was absolutely spectacular in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse we rented in Safety Harbor far surpassed our greatest expectations! We found the townhouse to be extremely clean, comfortable, light and roomy with every attention given to detail and comfort!! Living on the second floor gave us a beautiful view of Tampa Bay and of the amazing pool and grounds below----and we could walk up or ride an outside elevator to our delightful townhouse. Our townhouse was so much more than the description, from the comfortable three bedrooms to every conceivable convenience in each room, including the roomy kitchen area, as well as a very nice washer and dryer! The outside, screened deck area was a favorite place, especially in the morning as the area came to life. Many sunrises and sunsets were enjoyed without leaving our wonderful abode! We thoroughly adored the quiet of a private setting in the lovely small resort town of Safety Harbor, delightful walks to and through a mature park close by and on the bay, the use of a variety of bikes to tour the area and the uniqueness and convenience of all we needed, including stores, restaurants, medical facilities and navigation to our family in Lutz. We valued having the outside areas, including a pool, barbecue and jacuzzi with several decks so private, quiet and inviting, and our Floridian family enjoyed them with us! At night, the lights, including colored lighting in the pool, were a bonus! Beverly met us upon our arrival, and she and her husband, Jack, attended to our every need as well as sharing many enjoyable conversations, but they were always very considerate of our privacy too!! We met many intriguing and helpful people in Safety Harbor, the very best of them being our hosts! We had a most difficult time leaving our little spot in paradise to come home to Oregon, and would recommend this townhouse to everyone and anyone who enjoys the luxury of everything you could want in a tropical vacation with the comfy feeling of being at home! We definitely will return!!!

Absolutely the best

  • 5 of 5

We are experienced and very satisfied users of VRBO across several states. We can confidently and easily say that the experience we enjoyed in renting the 2 bedroom condo from Beverly and Jack Wold in November 2016 was our best ever. They take every possible step to ensure you have a perfect vacation. We give it our highest recommendation. Perfect.

There are several aspects that contribute to this evaluation. First, the location is ideal. An easy and pretty drive from Tampa International Airport but good access to downtown and most importantly, next door to several lovely communities (Safety Harbor, Dunedin etc.). Second, the precise location provides a beautiful view of Tampa Bay and is still very private. Third, the overall building is stunning and the outdoor amenities (pool, decks, landscaping) are 5 star. Next, the condo itself is large, modern, clean and completely equipped. We could have lived there very comfortably for an extended period. Finally, Beverly is a kind and generous host who took several “beyond the call of duty” steps to ensure our stay was relaxing and memorable. We felt “cared for” and valued as her guests.

If you are fortunate to make a booking at the Wold’s in safety Harbor, you will be very happy and will start planning your return visit before you depart. I know this because that’s what we did.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such an outstanding "review" of our townhouse ! We are overwhelmed with your generosity of all the kind thoughts you shared about your experience here. You two were so sweet and we really enjoyed having you two. We are looking forward to next time you come down and stay in our townhouse and enjoy the area! Generosity is a sign of a great soul. You two are surely one. Thank You again, Beverly & Jack

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.
