Most Relaxing Vacation
Sooooooooo perfect. It was like going to your family's house, but they weren't there. It was "Make yourself at home away from home" Do not bring anything with you, this house has everything you need, and than some. It is so quiet, (never heard a siren for two weeks,), so peacefull, you'll sleep late for day's. You don't have to drive, Well! maybe to the Supermarket to cook at home, (ten minutes away), or a short drive to Dundein, for awesome sunsets, (adjacent to 'Bon Appetitt'' A very nice Restaurant. Otherwise Main Street is four short blocks away, with many Restaurants. We favored the Nantucket Bucket, Southern Fresh, (absolutely great pan fried chicken), The Sandwhich Shop, and above all else, "Joey's Biscottie", (Eat your cake, yummy). Best desserts ever. Steven is an absolutely wonderful Ambassador, for Safety Harbor. The Resort SPA has a great buffet on Sunday's. All of the above are very reasonable. The Library is terrific. Don't bring a lot of clothes, just shorts, tee shirts and of course a bathing suit. Everywhere is casual. Steve and Mellissa are very much 'straight shooters'. "What they say is what they mean", Words fail to describe how comfortable we were. We're loking foward to 'home sitting' for them again.

We stayed in Steve and Melissa's cottage for three months while our house was being built. It was PERFECT!! The location is within walking distance of great restaurants and the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa which we used and enjoyed almost every day. The house is beautifully furnished and the kitchen has everything you could need. We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage.

Through Internet we have found Melissa's and Steve's place in Safety Harbor. A contact between us was quickly made and we found ourselves in their place from nov. 28 - dec. 18, 2012. We have never stayed in a more charming and a more complete place!! We have not only rented a house, but also a peaceful neighborhood, friendly people around us, use of Spa, Library and easy access to roads leading to all over Florida. Definitely a place to come back to!!!

The Blue Heron is even nicer than advertised. We thoroughly enjoyed our month (February, '12) and hate the fact that today is our last here. We made good use of the spa passes, and took many invigorating walks in the surrounding area, as well as short drives to nearby towns (Dunedin, Clearwater, Tampa, etc.). The kitchen is fully equipped, the rooms are comfortable and cozy, and the neighborhood is quier. You can even get excellent pizza: it was almost like being in Boston's North End but a lot warmer.

I don't actually want to write this review. Because I want to keep this darling bungalow a secret!!! Since the owners are so thoughtful and generous I can't not write this review. The home is clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and every amenity one could need on a vacation is provided. We loved the neighborhood--it's old Florida with beautiful flora views from every window. We used the library cards for books and to rent movies--big bonus. There are charming small businesses to explore in Safety Harbor. We enjoyed daily walks. Thank you Melissa and Steve for sharing your magical home with us and thinking of EVERYTHING!!! Can't wait to come back.

Owner response: We are so pleased you enjoyed our home and the time with your family. We love SH and when people call us back and say how much they enjoyed the house and the town we are thrilled. Melissa & Steve
We GREATLY enjoyed our time in this darling bungalow in Safety Harbor. It is cozy and comfortable yet quite stylish. The spa passes were FABULOUS. Each day I walked or rented a bike. we had a picnic at the harbor, strolled through the scenic downtown and read several novels. Delicious. We loved Safety Harbor SO much we are considering our own real estate purchase in this slice of heaven. What a great secret..shh..dont tell! Angi and Ken

Dennis and I rented this property in Safety Harbor January/February of 2009. It was a perfect escape from winter up north. Safety Harbor has a quiet, small town atmosphere and provides local activities including street fairs, farmers' markets, art, music, and wonderful little restuarants where we were made to feel like a part of the community. The house is beautiful, comfortable and filled with everything necessary plus many extras. We used the Spa passes every day for workouts and aerobic classes. The community of Safety Harbor is great for bike riding, running, and relaxing; however, it is a short 15 minute trip to Honeymoon Island and a beautiful beach. Also about 15 minutes away is the Pinellas Bike Trail which runs through other quaint artsy communities. It was a wonderful vacation, and we can't wait to make a return trip.

Owner response: Dear Debbie & Dennis, Thanks so much for your positive comments on our home. We love to hear guests comment on how much they enjoyed Safety Harbor..It is a treasure. Melissa & Steve
Don and I stayed in the bungalow in Safety Harbor in Dec. 06 and January 07. It was one of the most delightful vacations that we have experienced in the Gulf Coast area. The house is cosy and very well appointed. The neighbourhood is quiet, safe and friendly. The Guest passes to the Spa were a wonderful added feature. We used the Spa facility every day. The biking and the walking are attractive features in the area. Tennis courts are close by too. Safety Harbor is "Florida's well-kept secret"! We are booked again for next season.
