Overview

About the property

The house is located in a wonderfully safe and ideal location, central to some of the most historic and popular attractions in Florida! Fitted with top-of the line features, the home can comfortably host with 4 bedrooms and a private setting.

The home is complete with a pool, perfect for any group of guests alike. The home is well equipped with a spacious front, side, and back yard, with supplies for sports such as soccer and basketball. The kitchen is extremely updated to include any appliances needed for perfect cooking experiences. A toaster, oven, stove, refrigerator, and other appliances are all gladly provided, while utensils, plates, cups, pots, and pans for normal cooking and baking are aptly supplied. Two dining rooms and two living rooms are all included, giving the luxury of relaxation with others in an open and beautiful environment.

As for access, all guests will enjoy total access to the home.

Unfortunately, I won't have the pleasure to meet with guests since I will be vacationing; this does ensure even more privacy for the guest, though. However, I will have my brother and sister-in-law there to be in charge of managing the property regularly.

The neighborhood of Safety Harbor is a cozy yet vibrant neighborhood. It has a historic past, and is well-know for its beauty, frequent festivals and events, many beautiful parks only a short biking distance away, and gourmet yet homey restaurants, home to the Pizzeria Gregario, known for having the best Italian-style Pizza in the Tampa bay area as rated by the Tampa Bay Times. As for overall location, the house is near to three top spots in Florida: 26 minutes from St. Petersburg, 28 minutes from Tampa, and 22 minutes from Clearwater Beach. Of course, I would be glad to give a few tips to cater to any guests specific wants and needs regarding top things to do around the area. Please let me know.

The home of course offers free parking all throughout your stay, and public transit is very convenient, with transportation to Clearwater Beach, malls, and other locations easily accessible.

I am more than glad to answer any questions you may have about the overall listing. The garage is not off limits, and bikes can be used for a stroll around the neighborhood (four in total). However, we do use the garage for some storage.

Pets are allowed, though preferably smaller animals. An extra fee will be charged, though.

And please, no smoking.

About The Owner

I am a person who wants adventure; I love finding new things whether through cooking, reading, gardening, or traveling. Things like these inspire me. I was born in the rural and secluded jungles of Ecuador, so an exciting yet natural life was what I thrived, and still do thrive on.

Beautiful Home-Wonderful Stay! Would give 10 Stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

To echo the other reviewer, this home is exactly as advertised and much more! It is BIG with plenty of room for families!

My husband & I stayed here for a week during a business trip & we needed a CLEAN home close to his workplace. We were traveling with our small beagle & when I inquired about booking the property & bringing her, Cristina contacted me back right away (less than 24 hours) that our beagle was welcome in the home. From the time of booking through check-in/check-out, everything was a quick, easy process. Jose, (Cristina's brother), greeted us with a friendly smile from the moment we arrived and we enjoyed getting to know him and his lovely wife during our tour of the home.

The home is VERY CLEAN & everything is exceptionally well-maintained. The kitchen is very well-stocked with all you would need for cooking your own meals (except groceries of course). I was pleasantly surprised to see the stock of organic spices/herbs (I had brought my own organics from home). I did use mine since I brought them, but the spices/herbs are there if you need them along with pots/pans, many sets of plates/bowls, bakeware, cookware, glasses, utensils, pantry items. There is a 3-stage water filtration system in the kitchen & filtered water/ice from the refrigerator also. Plenty of blankets/pillows are provided if you have extra people in your party and the hall closet has many board games too. The only thing I would recommend bringing are beach towels...that's it!

There are a number of restaurants close-by, (about 1 minute drive) to downtown Safety Harbor, which is a lovely, friendly small town with pet-friendly locations/restaurants. Clearwater beach area is only about a 15 minute drive. Walgreens, Publix, Costco, gas stations, small shopping centers, are also very close-by.

The screened pool is fantastic! We loved the privacy and being able to cool off in our private pool and not worry about bugs. There are many pool toys as well. Speaking of bugs, NOT a one in the house whatsoever!

This is a very safe area (hard to find in Florida sometimes) & even though my husband was away most days at work, I felt very safe & comfortable in the home alone with my beagle and took walks with her through the subdivision without worry.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! I highly recommend this home & can say with confidence, you will not be disappointed. I am already thinking about when I can rent this home again and bring my family to enjoy!

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This rental is exactly what they advertise and much more.

Home is BIG and spread out with 4 beds & 3 full baths, which was perfect for us since we had 8 1/2 people with us.

"The part I liked the most was the cleanliness of the home"

Kitchen was fully stocked with just about anything you can imagine.

Pool was great for the kids and stocked with a lot of toys.

Location was perfect, not far from anywhere and not far at all from the beaches. Lots of restaurants to choose from & lots of different things to do in the area.

Jose the property caregiver, was very friendly and helpful. Answered questions and return txts right away. We had an issue with the A/C at first, but it had to do with the thermostat they have, it's a bit high tech for me and I think we were cranking on the heater instead of the air. hahaha. But Jose came to the rescue at almost 8pm and having to contact the owner who was on vacation with his family to figure out how to work the a/c. Mission was accomplished and the stay was amazing.

"I highly recommend this property to others that want to stay in the area in a relaxing atmosphere"

Stop shopping and contact owner to schedule.

Will be worth the money you spend.

I will definitely contact in the future to stay in the home again.
