About the property

Brand New With Old Fashioned Comfort, Located In The Heart Of Safety Harbor

Brand new 1 bedroom 1 bathroom vacation home. You will love the big front porch, open living and dining-room. There is a private and fully equipped kitchen, all appliances, dishes and cookware, and laundry. The front porch has an old fashioned porch swing, plus a outdoor covered patio. Unique opportunity for the right vacationer. Cat lovers are welcome, because part of the house is a cat sanctuary, with cats in residence in a "catio". Like the Hemmingway House in Key West, but the cats here do not have access to any part of the guest's area. This Safety Harbor vacation property is great for romantic get-away, relocating, building a new house, transferred to the area, and living like the locals do in our quaint and walkable small town. Located in the HEART of down-town Safety Harbor. Walk to fine dining and shopping only a couple blocks away. Enjoy the music at the gazebo park, 3rd Friday and other street festivals are right around the corner! Be the first to enjoy this brand new property located 100' from Main Street, Safety Harbor FL 34695. Just South of the John Wilson Gazebo Park. Near beautiful Gulf Coast Clearwater beach, upscale shopping, grocery and department stores, golf courses, fishing piers and charters, street festival and other tourist attractions and Tampa International Airport.

The bed has two sets of sheets, a blanket, bedspread and matching throw pillows and matching shams. four pillows. Additionally, there are bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths in the bathroom There are dishcloths and dishtowels, and there are also cleaning rags.

We also have 2 folding beach / concert/ park chairs that have carrying covers. If you need something, let me know, and I may already have one that I can bring over to you.

Grandma's Cottage was just what we were hoping for.

  • 5 of 5

Joe and I had a wonderful time on our recent vacation to Florida. Our "Home Away From Home" at Grandma's Cottage was perfect, and Shelly and Dave have made it very comfortable and welcoming for their guests. There is so much to see and do in Safety Harbor and we enjoyed every minute of our time there. We would absolutely recommend Grandma's Cottage to anyone looking for a vacation getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Shelly was a great host and was very responsive and available. Gave us good advice and recommendations, and we loved her work with the cats. If you're a cat lover like us, you will love staying here . If not, it's still a great place with a nice location, and has all you need for a visit to Safety Harbor/Tampa-Clearwater area. During our two week stay we enjoyed using the kitchen to cook our breakfast and a few dinners, we also appreciated having a laundry room . Being close to town, gave us the opportunity to enjoy many events in Safety Harbor within walking distance. The bed was comfy and clean, the space was all new and well designed! We loved Chloe! Pumpkin, Smokey and Hercules were all wonderful cats. Also a nice porch and patio to relax on and enjoy the gardens. We plan to stay here next year.
