Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Safety Harbor - Schooner's Place

1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage in beautiful downtown Safety Harbor!

“Adorable” is the word for Schooner’s Place, Seadog Cottages’ one-bedroom, one-bath guest suite that offers Coastal Living furnishings for corporate housing, seasonal visitors, vacationers, job relocations, and extended-stays due to insurance claims or home renovations.

Seadog Cottages: Sit. Stay. Relax.

At Schooner’s Place, upscale furnishings, bright colors and the retro feel of old Florida make a perfect getaway haven.

A totally renovated kitchen features all new appliances. Two big-screen televisions and “so comfortable” furnishings will make you feel at home. Two closets, 1,000-count sheets, and king-sized bed will keep you rested.

A screened porch with private and fenced patio is perfect for reading, relaxing or outdoor grilling/dining. A private laundry room, with new washer/dryer adds to the convenience.

Don’t risk the unknown. Seadog Cottages is not investment property with second-hand furnishings and rented periodically to offset expenses. Seadog Cottages -- Schooner’s Place, the 2/2 Seadog and 2/2 Duval House -- is professionally managed and maintained with a 24/7 focus on amenities, details and creating memorable guest experiences.

And all the charm of the Downtown Safety Harbor district is just out the door.

It’s a short walk to famous Safety Harbor Spa, Starbucks, quaint bungalow restaurants, shopping boutiques, salons, wine bars, pizza, ice cream, and local hangouts. Enjoy morning sunrise walks to Safety Harbor City Marina and Fishing Pier. Ride Seadog Cottages bikes on the wide sidewalks that border waterfront Bayshore Blvd. and stretch to historic 122-acre Philippe Park.

Beaches, upscale shopping and food stores, golf courses, fishing, attractions and Tampa International Airport are all within easy driving distance. Major League Baseball spring training games and minor league squads -- Phillies, Blue Jays and Yankees -- are minutes away.

So are golf courses and fishing trips.

All that and then there is a guest’s comment of which we are most proud: “Staying in Schooner’s was like having my own cocoon. I felt safe, secure and content.”

Seadog Cottages. There are no comparisons.

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 our newly renovated cottages. Schooner's Place is our second cottage and is next door to 'The Cottage' listed on VRBO #397836. Our family includes rescued Border Collies Truman, Mallory and Fausto with Louie the Goldendoodle. We are living our dream in downtown Safety Harbor, walking to the marina every morning to see the sunrise, and every evening 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 away from Tampa International Airport, 20 minutes from white sandy beaches and upscale shopping.

Wonderful, cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé, our puppy, and I spent three weeks here. We loved the location where we could walk to restaurants and pubs. The cottage was decorated in Key West style and was very comfortable. I loved the lush grounds surrounding the property and the relaxing water features. Desi and Mick are wonderful hosts who thought of everything to make our stay memorable. They greeted us with fruit and vegetables (I am on a restricted diet) and beverages. The king bed has 1000 thread count sheets that are heavenly! They let our puppy play with their dogs, and he had a blast. They went over and above our expectations for a vacation rental!

I would happily stay here again and would recommend it to a single traveler or a couple.

Cutest Little Cottage There Is!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our week-long stay at Schooner's Place and it was wonderful. I am quite sure the owners wrote everything they did down for about a month so they would be sure to have everything there that you could possibly need...even reading glasses, a calculator and stapler! My husband was amazed! Everything there was new...new and matching pots and pans, dishes, appliances, washer/dryer. It's seaside decorating is so beautiful and the landscaping is beyond wonderful (I'm a plant lover)! Quiet and so close to town. We have been coming to Safety Harbor for about 10 years and always just stayed at the spa...this is so much nicer. Thanks Desi and Mick we'll be seeing you again next year if we can work out the dates!

This place is THE BOMB!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was fabulous! The cottage is immaculate and stocked with everything! We stayed at the smallest of the 3 cottages but had plenty of room for the 2 of us. Ample sized kitchen with more kitchen items than you will ever need. Large bedroom with double closets is a bonus. There is a screened porch as well as a private patio. The cottages are within walking distance to all shops and restaurants in downtown Safety Harbor. Centrally located between Tampa and the beach areas. Mick and Desi are simply THE BEST hosts. Attentive to every detail! Wonderful folks. We will be back!

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My dog Sprout and I stayed at Schooner's Place for 4 months and it could not have been any better!! The pictures here don't even do the place justice, as the furnishings and decor are absolutely fabulous and very comfy. Desi and Mick are the utmost hosts, providing you anything you could possibly need; although they already have thought of everything in these cottages! The location is perfect to walk or bike to the Main St and bayfront activities. Sprout and I already miss it there and can't wait to come back!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

The owners are so very kind and have thought of everything that can make the cottage your home away from home. Kitchen is well equipped, extra towels and blankets are available, and they've even thought of things you might need (like scissors and sunscreen). We borrowed their bikes and their pass to Honeymoon Island among our daily excursions. And they were extremely welcoming of our dog (her own bowl and biscuit)! Safety Harbor is a charming town that is very walkable and easy driving distance to the Gukf beaches. Can't recommend Sea Dog cottages highly enough!

As a returning visitor to Safety Harbor, I couldn't think of staying anywhere else other than with Desi and Mick! Schooner is absolutely charming as are all the Seadog Rentals! The grounds are lush and well maintained and the cottage has everything you could possibly need. Everyday is like waking up in paradise! I can't wait to get back next year!
