Cozy retreat house

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place for us to stay and celebrate with our families living in Clearwater and Tampa Bay. The home was cozy and really close to the town of Safety Harbor with ITs great restaurants and brewery's. The Spa was great and so is the restaurant inside. We frequented the pier for sunrises and to watch the manatees, stingrays and dolphins play around the pier. Along with the Pelicans eating fish heads and stuff from the fishermen. All the beaches were great from Clearwater to honeymoon to sand key to shell island, St Petes beach and Pass A Grill wonderful beaches and dining. It was a nice 60 days in the sun. 23 Dec 16 to Feb 28, 2017

Comfortable, old-fashion Florida home in a great location

  • 4 of 5

"Creekside" proved to be a nice choice for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of Safety Harbor. The location is perfect, being within walking distance of Philippi Park, the marina, and a few blocks from downtown Safety Harbor. Although an older home in need of some work, the owners have made it comfortable, with a nicely decorated open living space with a tv/media center, efficient well-stocked kitchen, and pleasant bedrooms. There were plenty of towels and linens, and nice toiletries in the bathrooms. All of the appliances, including the washer and dryer, were efficient. Being situated on a busy road did not detract, since the property has a large yard and backs on Mullet Creek with a pond beyond. When we found binoculars, we enjoyed watching the birds, herons, and turtles. Our two large dogs were comfortable inside and loved the back patio. Whether enjoying breakfast in the sunroom, or a book and a glass of wine on the patio, we could definitely call Creekside a retreat.

great location, house needs some minor repairs but overall is clean comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The location is great, close to town so we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. The house is comfortable and clean. It could use some minor bath is a little moldy (humid Florida you know) but overall is clean and comfortable. We would have liked to have had a second bath towel and wash clothes, and you may want to bring toilet paper :-). The linens provided however were of nice quality. The beds comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Valerie was easy to communicate with and was responsive to all my queries prior to arrival. I would stay here again without hesitation.

exactly as described - even better

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a perfect location for us - not tourist trap - but close to many places we wanted to visit. The places was clean, comfortable - if I were to go back to the area I would definitely try to stay here again. Owner was very friendly & helpful when one of us 'hit the wrong button' on TV remote .

I would definitely recommend this home to either small family - or single travelers.

Awesome location and comfortable, homey quarters.

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't pick a better location for enjoying Safety Harbor and the regional assets. Short walk to downtown and on main thruway but with the feeling of privacy and nature, given large yard.

House was roomy, beachy and well appointed, with everything provided to feel at home, with just a few tiny issues due to age of house.

Thanks to Valerie for her warm hospitality and responsiveness.
