About Philippe Eversdijk

I am a Florida native from Tallahassee and have been an avid beach fan my entire life. During the day I work with children that are hearing impaired. Fortunately, I met my husband Philippe who hales from Amsterdam, Netherlands. He has had an illustrious career in the Resort industry and has moved around a lot. We both have a love for travel, great food and creating new memories. .

We have been long time residents of this well kept secret called Safety Harbor and we

both look forward to welcome you to the Bayview Cottage!

Philippe Eversdijk purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Philippe Eversdijk chose Safety Harbor

While walking on Bayshore Boulevard last Summer we noticed a garage sale sign. When we saw that property was for sale as well we instantly fell in love for it's location and potential. We were one of 13 bidders! It was definitely meant to be. So we set out on this three month ride of completely overhauling this gem. We are still married as well! We look forward now to sharing it with you and sincerely hope you will enjoy Safety Harbor as much as we do living here.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the view of the bay initially and it's awesome location and proximity to Main Street, Marina and Pier. We were compelled by the bones of this house. It is a true cottage with unique touches from mid-century which we have improved upon as a labor of love, top to bottom. After meeting all of our wonderful and encouraging neighbors we were immediately connected to this home from the beginning and plan to live in it in our "retirement". For now we are excited to share it with you!

Charm and perfection.

  • 5 of 5

Every single thing about this quiet cottage is thoughtfully considered.

The colors, the layout, and the placement of the outdoor seating. That’s where

I spent every morning with coffee and the sun rising over the bay.

A short stroll into town puts you on the sweet Main Street.

The pictures don’t do it justice. Phillipe has great taste. It’s both neat as a pin and inviting with comfort.

I loved it.

Another Lovely March in Safety Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to be able to stay in this Safety Harbor Cottage again this year for the month of March. The VRBO pictures just don’t do this home justice. This is a lovely, neat and clean home, which sits only a block from Tampa Bay and is equipped with everything we needed for a month's reprieve from the harsh Michigan winter. We prepared many meals at home and enjoyed using the gas grill which is provided. We can recommend The Bar Fly and Southern Fresh if you are looking for a meal away from home and both are just a short walk from the Cottage. There is a bike trail nearby and a dog park which was enjoyed by our two mini-schnauzers. The entire family loved our month in Safety Harbor and look forward to returning again next year. Philippe was the perfect host! Recommended without reservation!!

Beautiful, thoughtful accomodations.

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient access to theme parks, St Petersburg attractions, as well as walking distance to Safety Harbor Marina and Downtown. Lovely accommodations with state of the art kitchen. We made use of the fire pit twice. Philippe, our host was gracious and helpful communicating as often as needed. We would highly recommend this space.

The perfect little home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for two months in late 2007. After spending three years abroad, this little cottage was the perfect place to reacquaint ourselves with beautiful Safety Harbor. Perfectly comfortable and quick access to the water, walking paths, the harbor and Main Street. Philippe was wonderful and always available for assistance. So nice to have our Labrador with us. Thank you so much for an amazing experience. Bob and Suz

Our stay in Safety Harbor.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Phillipe's beautiful bungalow for several months during our home rehabilitation from a flood.

We very much enjoyed the entire stay. The little house is quite roomy, in a quiet neighborhood but within walking distance of downtown Safety Harbor. It is also very close to Bayshore Blvd and the fitness trail and municipal pier.

Highest recommendations!

Super Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

On a very short notice, this vacation turned out to be one of the most enjoyable and relaxing trips in a long, long while. Place was immaculate with all high quality everything from TV to Wifi down to the quality of the sheets. Can't say enough about the place as well as Philippe's lead on Safety Harbor and surroundings. Many thanks, Denny & Sue!!!

Safety Harbor has lots to offer! Our cottage is located off Bayshore Boulevard overlooking Tampa Bay. Only three blocks from Main Street with restaurants, bard, antique shops. We even have a Coldstone Ice creamery and Starbucks. Honeymoon Island ranks as one of our favorite beach together with downtown St. Pete (about 25 minutes away). Busch Gardens is about 35 minutes away. Dunedin is a small town to the northwest of us and is picturesque and has good bar/dining options. Every Thursday morning in season there is a Farmers market on Main street at the gazebo. If your are here on third Friday please do attend. Regularly our town organizes festivals and special events.
