Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Safety Harbor - Seadog Cottages

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms/2 Baths King & Queen

Don’t settle for less.

“Seadog,” an enchanting two-bed room, two-bath cottage, sets the standard for comfortable elegance, offering high-end accommodations for corporate housing, seasonal visitors, vacationers, job relocations, or anyone displaced by home renovations or insurance repairs.

Located in the heart of charming downtown Safety Harbor, Fla., on old Tampa Bay, the Seadog Cottages complex is two blocks off Main Street and steps from famous Safety Harbor Spa, Starbucks, Coldstone Creamery, quaint bungalow restaurants, shopping boutiques, wine bars, local hangouts and sunrise walks to the City Marina and fishing pier.

Seadog Cottages is not someone’s investment property with second-hand furnishings rented periodically to offset expenses. Seadog Cottages -- the 2/2 Seadog, the 2/2 Duval House and 1/1 Schooner’s Place -- is professionally managed and maintained with 365-days-a-year focus on amenities, details and creating memorable guest experiences.

Wrap yourself in the comfort of Seadog’s open floor plan, featuring a comfortable living area with 46-inch flat screen TV and HD signal, original artwork, fully-equipped kitchen, screened lanai with flat-screen TV and, outdoor garden/patio grilling area.

The master bedroom suite offers a king-size bed, 1,000-count sheets, walk-in closet, 42-inch flat screen TV, chase lounge and private bathroom with rain-head shower. The second bedroom offers a queen-size bed and 40-inch flat screen.

Featured on the ABC television series “Sweet Retreats,” Seadog Cottages is a true get-away experience. The obsessively maintained grounds are private, secluded, lushly and beautifully landscaped. Water features, lawn art, seashells and palm trees leave no doubt you are in a Florida paradise.

You may never want to leave but if you must Seadog Cottages is conveniently located -- Tampa’s International Airport and exclusive Westshore shopping and business district is 20 minutes away and the area’s celebrated Gulf Beaches are a 10-mile drive.

Or stay closer to home and use Seadog’s complimentary bicycles to explore numerous trails and nearby 122-acre Philippe Park, its Indian mound listed in the National Register of Historic Landmarks. The historically rich park bares the name of French explorer Count Odet Philippe, who introduced the grapefruit to Florida.

Major League Baseball Spring Training and minor league teams are minutes away. Teams include Phillies, Blue Jays and Yankees.

Or we can help with scheduling golf and fishing trips.

And we are dog friendly.

Everything you need for home-away-from-home living awaits.

Seadog Cottages: Sit. Stay. Relax.

About The Owner

After 25 years living in South Tampa we were ready to experience our love for Key West living and found it in Safety Harbor. Mick (retired sports writer) and Desanya (working! commercial property manager) reside in the main house and look forward to welcoming guests to the newly renovated cottage. Our family includes rescued Border Collies Truman, Mallory and Fausto with the new addition of Louie the goldendoodle. We are living our dream in downtown Safety Habor, walking to the marina every morning to see the sunrise, and strolling back home in the evenings after sampling our favorite beverages. As the locals like to say, 'It's Mayberry on the Bay.'

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Clearwater Area

We wanted and found a small-town waterfront-village with the benefits of a metropolitan area. Just 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport, 20 minutes from white sandy beaches, and upscale shopping.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is by far one of the best VRBO properties we have ever rented! The pictures don't do it justice--it has a great location, beautiful landscaping and gorgeous interior. The cottage has all the comforts of home. Mick and Desi are wonderful hosts. They provided us with beach chairs, an umbrella and a cooler and were available if we needed anything. When you rent from Seadog Cottages, you won't be disappointed!

Perfect home, perfect host.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home, warm and welcoming. Great location for walking the Safety Harbor area, or for driving through the Clearwater, St Pete or Tampa Area. The host were available if needed and more then willing to help with our needs or questions of the area making our trip even more carefree. I would recommend this home without hesitation.

The cottage is so beautiful and comfortable, the landscaping is gorgeous. It was so nice to have an outdoor area for the kids to play (chase lizards!) and to relax in the evenings. The screened porch with the fan and comfortable furniture, ahhh, so relaxing. All the comforts of home but better decor! Mick and Desanya are wonderful, very friendly, helpful and accommodating. This was the perfect base to explore the area beaches, we did a different beach each day. I can't say enough about how much we loved our stay here!! We spent 2 days in Orlando before coming to Safety Harbor, a full day at Universal Studios. When I asked the kids what their favorite was they said the cottage and the beaches, was definitely the adults favorite part of the trip as well. I've already told my parents they must stay at Seadog Cottages!

Expectations surpassed..LOVE

  • 5 of 5

We are local residents undergoing major renovations to our home. Needless to say, being displaced can be a bit daunting. From the moment we arrived we were overcome with the immaculate beauty and serene atmosphere. Once inside, we felt the lost feeling of being home. There is nothing amiss. The amenities are quality and coordinated - not mismatched remnants. The sound of the fountain and the privacy will certainly enhance your stay as you relax. The location is perfect as well. Walking distance to the shops, restaurants, waterfront to name a few. Desi and Mick are wonderful and very conscientious and have inspired me to emulate their organized setup. ;)

Another fantastic stay at Seadog Cottage, our sixth stay in four years. We are hooked on this luxury vacation home. Each time we come, we are impressed with each new improvement. We want for nothing and if we did, Desi and Mick bend over backwards to make it available. The new roof, windows ,king box spring and mattress, linens and 4th tv for the screened porch since our stay last February are just some of the improvements to add to our comfort. They are constantly thinking about the needs of their guests. Our family and friends feel right at home when they visit us during our visits. The area is safe and convenient to so many places. We have made some special memories here. Sunshine enjoyed her daily adventures and meeting other Safety Harbor 4 legged friends and parents. We find that a month goes too fast for us, though. Next stay, next time........

Owner's Response: We are so happy you liked the improvements/changes. We really strive to keep all cottages up to date, new and fresh. This visit was special with the new addition of Sunshine and we are proud this was her first vacation spot to visit. Cheers to 2016 and we hope to see you again - sooner than later!

Excellent Welcome, Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying in vacation rentals in Florida for several years since my mother and siblings moved there from Alabama. Never have I stayed in a rental as luxurious, comfortable and inviting as the Seadog property. Desanya and Nick were available to meet me earlier than my scheduled arrival time due to changes in flight arrival times, and they were lovely hosts, making sure all my questions were answered and that I had everything I needed during my stay. The actual residence is beautifully decorated and appointed, and I realized halfway through my stay that I felt at-home there. It didn't feel like I was staying in someone else's place, it felt like MY place. You can't really ask for more than that! I am excited to have found these properties and I hope that I will be able to stay at them whenever I come back down to Florida to visit my family.
