About Lori Heffner

I moved to this home in Safety Harbor in 1999 from one block away because I loved Safety Harbor and this neighborhood so much. 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.

Lori Heffner purchased this House in 1999

Why Lori Heffner chose Safety Harbor

This home is tucked away in a neighborhood just 3 houses from the bay under a canopy of beautiful oak trees. I have loved being able to walk along Bayshore north to Phillippe Park, or south to 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.

What makes this House unique

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.

                                                            Located 3 houses from Bay Shore Drive, a popular biking/jogging spot along Tampa Bay and within walking distance of a beautiful County Park. It is close to downtown Safety Harbor. There are many restaurants in the downtown area as well as the nearby 4 corners at the Enterprise Rd/McMullen Booth intersection. Some are pet friendly. Safety Harbor schedules lots of seasonal activities including Songfest, Seafood Festival, 3rd Friday monthly activities, 4th of July Celebration, and Farmers’ Market, among other fun events. The Marina Park Pier is a great spot to go fishing or crabing. If that doesn’t interest you then go to watch the manatees frolic in Tampa Bay. Clearwater Beach, named #1 beach in the US is 20 minutes away. It takes 45 minutes to drive to Busch Gardens and 90 minutes to Disney World. Bay Area Sports: Tampa Bay Bucs Football, The Rays for baseball, TB Lightening for Hockey. Many diversified Museums: including Safety Harbor’s own, also Salvador Dali, etc. Theater: Ruth Eckerd Hall. You will not be bored. AND at the end of the day you can return to your peaceful abode and the comfortable beds for a good nights sleep.

                                                            My husband and I have been renting in Florida for the past four years, and this rental has been by the the best! We love Safety Harbor and this house is in a perfect location, only two houses down from Tampa Bay. The house was very roomy and tastefully decorated. It had all the "comforts of home" and there was very little extra kitchen supplies that I needed to bring. We like to eat in a lot and the kitchen had lots of pots and pans and dishes. It was just so relaxing to sit outside under the oaks and read and enjoy all the people walking. We walked into town and in Philippe Park almost every day. There were so many craft fairs and farmers markets to go to. The lovely towns of Dunedin and Clearwater are also nearby with the wonderful shops and beaches. We finally found our "little piece of heaven" that we will definitely return to!

                                                            Thanksgiving weekend with family.

                                                            This house is in a great location, has a big kitchen we used to cook Thanksgiving dinner, and a large living room to relax in.

                                                            We enjoyed our stay in Safety Harbor!! The house was perfect,very clean and quiet!
