Overview

About the property

Enjoy The Charm Of Safety Harbor Just Footsteps To The Bay.

Enjoy the charm of Safety Harbor. This recently furnished vacation rental home is just 5 houses from the bay and within walking distance of Safety Harbor's great restaurants and shops.

Centrally located to beaches (12 miles to spectacular Clearwater Beach), the two area airports (15 miles to Tampa International Airport or 10 miles to St Pete/Clearwater Airport) and Busch Gardens (22 miles).

Walk 7 short blocks along Tampa Bay to the Safety Harbor Spa, fishing pier, marina and Main Street. With all the wonderful new places to eat, there is now something for everyone. If you happen to be here on the 3rd Friday of the month, you can enjoy Safety Harbor's 3rd Friday outdoor street festival with live music at the gazebo and street vendors (food and arts/crafts)

Walk 3 short blocks north along Tampa Bay to the south entrance of Phillippe Park (walking, biking, picnic areas, small beach area, boat ramp, Indian burial grounds and Count Phillippe's grave).

If you can live without a dishwasher, this cozy clean home should have just about everything else you might need to make your stay comfortable.

This home sleeps up to 6 people (two bedrooms plus sleeper sofa in the family room).

About Lori Heffner

I moved to Safety Harbor with the purchase of this home in 1996. I fell in love with Safety Harbor and between this home and another home one block away, 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. I have since moved closer to my tennis courts. Once I can't play tennis anymore, I'll be back in Safety Harbor.

Why Lori Heffner chose Clearwater Area

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.

What makes this house unique

This home is tucked away in a little neighborhood just 5 houses from the bay. I have loved being able to walk along Bayshore to Phillippe Park, 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.

The house was clean and the location perfect. We found the house to be comfortable and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

The location with steps to the bay and walking distance to the shops and restaurants was ideal. We had everything we needed in the home. It was very clean. We appreciated our time and plan on booking again in the future.

I know this is way late but I can say couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say that I could not ask for a better place to have stayed at it will have all the right things just enough room for us and to even have family over to have a great night of dinner. I only wish that we could have had more time to stay in this beautiful home and I look forward into coming back and staying in the future has everything you need plus more and you couldn't ask for a better location.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house was at the perfect location, five minute walk to Philippe Park and 10 minute walk to the center of Safety Harbor. Located on a quiet street, the house is just a couple minutes walk to Tampa bay and was very well equipped. It was a nice size home for two to four people. We loved it. Safety Harbor is my new favorite town, quaint but it has a lot to offer from weekly farmers markets to third Fri festival. It was only about a 10 minute drive to the Phillies ballpark for spring training. Thank you Lori for answering all our questions in a very timely manner. It was a great vacation.
