Overview

Safety Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy The Charm Of Safety Harbor Just Footsteps To The Bay.

Enjoy the charm of Safety Harbor. This recently furnished vacation rental home is just 5 houses from the bay and within walking distance of Safety Harbor's great restaurants and shops.

Centrally located to beaches (12 miles to spectacular Clearwater Beach), the two area airports (15 miles to Tampa International Airport or 10 miles to St Pete/Clearwater Airport) and Busch Gardens (22 miles).

Walk 7 short blocks along Tampa Bay to the Safety Harbor Spa, fishing pier, marina and Main Street. With all the wonderful new places to eat, there is now something for everyone. If you happen to be here on the 3rd Friday of the month, you can enjoy Safety Harbor's 3rd Friday outdoor street festival with live music at the gazebo and street vendors (food and arts/crafts)

Walk 3 short blocks north along Tampa Bay to the south entrance of Phillippe Park (walking, biking, picnic areas, small beach area, boat ramp, Indian burial grounds and Count Phillippe's grave).

If you can live without a dishwasher, this cozy clean home should have just about everything else you might need to make your stay comfortable.

This home sleeps up to 6 people (two bedrooms plus sleeper sofa in the family room).

About Lori Heffner

I moved to Safety Harbor with the purchase of this home in 1996. I fell in love with Safety Harbor and between this home and another home one block away, I made Safety Harbor my home for 18 years. My neighbors became my family here. I love being outdoors and the weather in Florida and the beaches make an outdoor lifestyle unbeatable. When I'm not working, you can most likely find me on the tennis courts. I have since moved closer to my tennis courts. Once I can't play tennis anymore, I'll be back in Safety Harbor.

Why Lori Heffner chose Clearwater Area

Safety Harbor is a unique blend of small town with easy access to airports, downtown Tampa and the beaches. What a great little corner of the world this is.

What makes this house unique

This home is tucked away in a little neighborhood just 5 houses from the bay. I have loved being able to walk along Bayshore to Phillippe Park, the Safety Harbor Spa, the fishing pier (where you can often see Manatees) and the marina or any of the restaurants and bars that have cropped up on Main Street.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Lori was very helpful and accommodating and had great communication throughout our stay. The house is in a perfect location close to several shops and dining places in Safety Harbor and just a short ride to Clearwater Beach. We really enjoyed going down to the pier at the marina that is right up the road and seeing the manatees in the evenings. We hope to stay again for our vacation next year!

Very clean and comfortable. Beds very good. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will try to get this home again if we return. In a great neighborhood very close to the bay and park. Convenient to everything about Safety Harbor. Received my damage deposit back within 3 days of return. Thanks Lori and Debbie

The house was clean, comfortable with all the room a family of six could need. I We loved the walk from downtown Safety Harbor to the house and through the park. Lori was wonderful and communication with her was so easy . We would definitely stay here again and if you are looking for house in the area for your stay pick this one. We as a family will chose this house again on our next stay down there with out a doubt.

We loved the little bungalow on Grand Central Ave. in Safety Harbor - just a nice quiet little neighborhood with nice friendly neighbors on both sides. It was wonderful to be able to just go to the end of the street and walk along the beautiful bay. Also loved that we were within easy walking distance to Phillippe Park and also downtown. Downtown Safety Harbor is a really quaint little town with lots of great activities, great library, the pier and of course restaurants galore. Lori was very accommodating and gracious. We had a couple WiFi snafus, but she took care of it in less than an hour. Overall experience was great. I would recommend this property as a great place to rent for a couple that like piece and quiet. J & S

Wonderful Holiday Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable, and well decorated! It had everything we needed. We loved the walk from downtown Safety Harbor to the house and through the park. Safety Harbor has so many things to do but we also enjoyed visiting Dunedin by trolley and Tarpon Springs. Lori was wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.

Quiet comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our accommodations. Communication was timely and clear. Bed was comfortable and location ideal. Also, the place was spotless. So thanks for making our visit so nice. I recommend using the bikes because there is a beautiful trail one block away.
