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 Clearwater Area

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!

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!!!

Great cottage minutes from downtown Safety Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our two mini-schnauzers stayed in this lovely cottage for the entire month of March. It was very clean and comfortable (especially the beds!), and was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals at home, including a small gas grill. Safety Harbor is a wonderful small town near Tampa, Tarpon Springs, and Clearwater and all it's lovely beaches. There is lots to see and experience whichever direction you head. A bike trail is a short distance from the cottage for early morning and evening walks. You could not ask for better hosts. Philipe was wonderful to work with and responded to questions quickly, and he offered suggestions about weekend town events and restaurants we should try. Often we spent time in the evenings at the Marina watching dolphins and manatees just off the dock, and the local fishermen haul in their catch. We couldn't have been more pleased with our decision to stay in this lovely cottage with views of the Bay. We are already planning and looking forward to going back next March!

Clean, modern & well located

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this darling little home. It was walking distance to downtown Safety Harbor, with lots of activities. You can easily walk to the resort pier, where manatees could be viewed on most days (January & February). Safety Harbor is a lovely small town close to Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater Beach... We got spoiled by the very large smart TV's in the living and bedrooms. Phillips & Vanje, the owners, could not have been more friendly or responsive.

Can't wait to go back - and we will!!

Charming, airy cottage near downtown Safety Harbor

  • 5 of 5

I rented the cottage for family coming in for Thanksgiving. The cottage was conveniently located near downtown and had views of TampaBay. It was very clean and comfortable. The rooms were tastefully designed and the kitchen was just redone. The fridge was stocked with drinks and my guests were very happy staying there. Philippe contacted me to make sure my guests had everything they needed, which they did. There was free wifi and cable, and a firepit outside. The cottage was much more relaxing than a hotel, and our family was very happy that we rented it for their stay.

Car: recommended

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.
