About the property

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

Enjoy the charm of Safety Harbor. This vacation rental home is just 5 houses from the bay and within walking distance of Phillippe Park, the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa and Safety Harbor's many great little restaurants and shops.

Centrally located to beaches (12 miles to spectacular Clearwater Beach), the two area airports (14 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 clean cozy 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 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.

Why Lori Heffner chose Safety Harbor

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 north along Bayshore to Phillippe Park, or south to the Safety Harbor Spa, the fishing pier (where you can often see Manatees) and the marina as well as any of the many restaurants and bars that have cropped up on Main Street.

This little "peach" was perfect

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location; close to water, parks, and great biking trails. The home was super clean and had everything my husband and I needed for a fantastic month in beautiful Safety Harbor. The owner was extremely accommodating and very pleasant to work with. We would definitely recommend the little peach house to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway.

Cute home in lovely town

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our month long stay at Lori's house near the bay. We love Safety Harbor and this home is a little less than a mile walk along the bay from the town center. It was clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. I love a light, bright home and the living room was dark for me because of the shutters covering the windows, but we really enjoyed our many times sitting on the screened porch with coffee or cocktails! We have already reserved a month for next spring, which says a lot!

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, I’m so happy you enjoyed your stay and our special little corner of the world. I agree, the screened lanai was always my favorite place to hang out to enjoy morning coffee and/or evening cocktails.

Perfect location, clean, quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, quiet place. Beautiful and safe area. The home was very clean and beds were comfortable. The neighbors are friendly. Lots of games for the kids. For those who do not sleep well due to noise, I HIGHLY recommend staying here as it's so quiet and peaceful. It's a beautiful walk into Safety Harbor. If you come to this part of Florida, take a day and visit Caledesi Island either by island ferry or kayak like we did. We saw dolphins and the water is beautiful.

Had a very good time, enjoyed the home and the area.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for many years. Continue to enjoy the area. It is quiet with many areas to walk and enjoy the weather. Lori, the landlord, is very friendly and does not intrude. Safety Harbor is a very nice little downtown and have seen manatee from the pier on numerous occasions . We enjoy walking along the bay and Philippe Park.

Safety Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and neat. The only negative was both skillets were not good, so we decided not to cook breakfast. The area was easy to get around and we were able to find what we needed. Went to 2 beaches and went to Johns Pass and did a little shopping.
