Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear John & Valerie - My sister and I enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. This is our second stay here. You've done a great job with this house. It is such a pleasure to stay here. I love the fact that everything is so immaculate! There was nothing that we wanted or needed that you didn't have here. I sure hope we left everything in the house to your liking. We sure to hope to have the opportunity to stay here again in the future. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!

The location is perfect and there are plenty of towels. I felt the home was in dire need of some TLC. There was paint dripped on the floors, quarter round that wasn’t replaced, caulking needed, mold in the bathroom and all outside furniture needed to be cleaned. Having said that I was ok until the air conditioner started acting up. We called and Val responded promptly, it took a few days to get it repaired. I thought it would be ok but it continued to be very warm (78 degrees). Val told us that is where they keep their thermostat at home and seemed to think we were being unreasonable to expect a lower temperature. We did leave for two days but made it through the month ok. I would want a guarantee on the status of the AC if I were to stay during the summer months.

Creekside Retreat

  • 3 of 5

Location was great! Size of the house was ideal. Unfortunately, the property was somewhat "grungy." Paint spatters on the floor. Many burned out lights. Patio furniture was dirty. Yard was unkempt. Place wasn't dirty, it just needs some professional maintenance and "sprucing up." Understand that this is an older house but that doesn't excuse neglect.

Very comfortable and clean home. Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The home is very comfortable and clean. Everything works well. No problem with anything. Dishwasher and all other appliances work perfectly. There are a few minor repairs needed. Bathroom floor needs some work.

Air conditioning works great and so does the coffee pot!

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
