Safety Harbor house description

Enjoy the charm of Safety Harbor. This recently furnished vacation rental home is just 5 houses from the bay and within walking distance of Safety Harbor's great restaurants and shops.

Centrally located with easy access to the two area airports (20 mins to either Tampa International Airport or St Pete/Clearwater Airport) and beaches (20 mins to spectacular Clearwater Beach).

Walk 15 minutes (8 blocks) along Tampa Bay to the Safety Harbor Spa, fishing pier, marina and Main Street. With all the wonderful new places to eat, there is now something for everyone. If you happen to be here on the 3rd Friday of the month, enjoy Safety Harbor's 3rd Friday outdoor street festival with live music at the gazebo and street vendors (food and arts/crafts)

Walk 5 minutes along Tampa Bay to the south entrance of Phillippe Park (walking, biking, picnic areas, small beach area, boat ramp, Indian burial grounds and Count Phillippe's grave).

If you can live without a dishwasher, this cozy clean home should have just about everything else you might need to make your stay comfortable.

This home sleeps up to 6 people (two bedrooms plus sleeper sofa in the family room).

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1996

              About the owner: I moved to Safety Harbor with the purchase of this home in 1996. I fell in love with Safety Harbor and made it my home for 18 years. My neighbors have become 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.

              Why the Owner Chose Safety Harbor:
              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.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home is tucked away in a little neighborhood just 5 houses from the bay. 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.
