My husband and I grew up in the Tampa Bay area. I enjoy cooking, and Chris enjoys puttering in his shop. We are on site owners. We live on one side of the property and rent out our efficiency for vacation rentals. We both enjoy gardening, reading, traveling, family, friends and our church. We have 4 cats and 1 dog and we love Safety Harbor!
Jarine Dotson purchased this studio in 2010
We moved to Safety Harbor because we wanted to be closer to a sense of 'community'. We fell in love with the small town feeling, the people, the ambiance, and the spirit of the town. It's like Mayberry USA. A working town, and resort town at the same time. It's safe and fun. Check out Facebook 'I Love Safety Harbor' or online newspaper Patch for Safety Harbor news and events.
We are 30 minutes from the Tampa and St. Pete Clearwater airport airport and Clearwater Beach. We are within walking distance of Safety Harbor Resort and Spa. Day passes can be purchased at the Spa, or get a treatment and you can use the Spa all day. We have waterfront trails and parks within walking/biking distance. Shopping malls include Westfield Countryside, Westshore and International Mall.
My husband and I stayed in this cosy rental for the month of February. We were totally happy with our accommodations. Everything was clean and neat and we found the kitchen well equipped. My husband especially liked the barbecue space and I was happy with the wifi and the convenience of a washer and dryer. We were close to bike paths and walking distance to the dock and the park. Jarine and Chris couldn't have been better hosts. We are anxious to return!
My wife and I visited the Tampa area on a business trip in late November 2015. We found this amazing studio in a great location. The studio was clean, quiet and had everything you need for an extended stay. We were walking distance to main street and all the shops and dining. No issues with privacy, and when we did run into the owners, it was a pleasure!
My stay with Chris and Jarine in Safety Harbor was one of the most wonderful memories in my life. The friendly town was only exceeded by the warm hospitality shown to me from these two kind and generous people. I recommend anyone to come to Safety Harbor and befriend the Dotsons!
An unexpected trip to this area was easily resolved by finding this gem !
The accommodations are exactly as shown in the pictures, clean and welcoming.
Once we were shown the details upon arrival our privacy was respected though I knew Jarine was just steps away. I was thrilled at how convenient everything was within walking distance.
We will definitely refer anyone with confidence !
This was my second stay with Jarine and Chris and I have to say it is just the best! Five stars for sure. It is a perfect retreat for two. Close to everything you need (shops, restaurants, marina, the Spa, etc.). Meticulously kept and comfortable. We intend to come back again and again! Thank you, Jarine and Chris.
The perfect oasis right in the heart of Safety Harbor! I couldn't have asked for a better location to the restaurants and shops in the quaint downtown area... And the magnificent sunsets along the Bay were all within waking distance! The cozy cottage had every thing and more to make our stay outstanding! I will definitely stay here anytime I am in the area! A big shout out to the owner for making our stay the most enjoyable experience!!!!
