About Lori Heffner

I moved to this home in Safety Harbor in 1999 from one block away because I loved Safety Harbor and this neighborhood so much. I made this place 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've since moved closer to my tennis facility, but when I can't play tennis anymore, I'll be back in Safety Harbor.

Lori Heffner purchased this house in 1999

Why Lori Heffner chose Safety Harbor

This home is tucked away in a neighborhood just 3 houses from the bay under the canopy of the oaks. 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great Home! Lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Safety Harbor! The home is in a beautiful neighborhood and the ease of walking around the area is fantastic. The owners have everything labeled and left little extras so you didn't start out your vacation buying a bunch of items to cook with or clean with. I've learned to pack extra trash bags and dishwasher tabs. We didn't have any problems, instructions were clear prior to arrival, with a helpful notebook with additional information. We would definitely rent this home again!

Great Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

This house was spacious and very clean. The location was great (quiet but near the downtown area, and walking distance from a beautiful park.)

Great location - quiet with large living space

  • 5 of 5

We loved walking along the bay every evening. Safety Harbor has lots of great restaurants. The house is in such an ideal, quiet and safe residential location. It's also close to the beaches and St. Pete. It's also a great set up for dogs and we enjoyed the HDTV and great internet connection. The street is very shaded and the landscaping further covers the house but we enjoyed it and we didn't have any problems during our stay - not even from Hurricane Matthew. Lori is a patient and responsive owner and we wouldn't hesitate to rent again. Try the Whistle Stop café and the pizza place in downtown Safety Harbor.

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable home. We liked the bedrooms separated with two separate bathrooms. The kitchen is quite large, and great for hanging out. Only one block from the shore, so it made it easy to go for walks along the shore or into Phillippe Park.

Great place!

Very large home, clean and near shopping, restaurants and Phillipe Park.

  • 4 of 5

The picture of the house we saw before renting this property is completely different from when we arrived. You could not see the front of the house and the landscaping left it much to be desired. Coming home at night left us very uncomfortable as the bushes, etc. could hide prowlers or animals and made us feel unsafe. We would have liked keyed deadbolts because every entrance door had a window which also made us feel unsafe at night. Once inside, there were red ants in the front room and there were ants in the kitchen (specifically in the sugar bowl but also around the counter top) and in the second bathroom vanity which my daughter found not only on the vanity but in her make up bag and this we had to deal with throughout our stay. Although the kitchen was very well supplied with pots, pans and utensils, there was no toaster, which for breakfast was a must. Also, the grill was in disrepair.

But overall, with the 3 bedrooms, huge living room, 2 baths, it met all our needs.

Owner's Response: Awww, I'm so sorry to hear that your stay was not up to your expectations. You had mentioned the ants, when you were leaving, so I scheduled for my pest control company to come out and treat. If I had known sooner, I could have gotten them out to treat sooner. I have the bushes trimmed in the fall once it cools off a bit for my handyman. We have had quite a lot of rain this summer which has caused everything to grow incredibly fast. The recent tropical storm rain likely caused the ant situation since I've not experienced that before. There is security/hurricane film on all the windows as well as the windows on the two exterior doors. I lived there by myself, so I had the same concerns. I opted for a toaster oven rather than a toaster since it seemed a little more versatile. I wish I had known about the grill. I have another one you could have used. I would have been happy to bring it over. I appreciate all your feedback. I just wish I had had an opportunity to resolve while you were there.
