  • Absolutely smashing!

    "We visited with our two adult sons and one girlfriend so fully occupied the space available. The town home was very comfortable indeed and exceedingly well equipped with views out to the Bay. We loved the covered porch for breakfast 'outdoors' but especially the pool area! Marvellous pool (8' at its deepest) which was lovely once you were in and so large compared to normal vacation rentals in Florida. With young children you'd have to be hyper-vigilant though. The jacuzzi was a great addition and had a wonderful massage feature too and there is no shortage of space to sit out in sun or shade. Nice private location and easy cycle distance to Main St through Phillipe Park. Not recommended for those without transport unless you love walking. We were grateful for the lift to get the cases up to the apartment on the first floor though! Mosquito repellant is advisable as there's a creek running through and the little beggars are quite active particularly in the cooling hours. We did also have a minor niggle with the noise from the garages below but otherwise we had such a pleasant stay and it really wasn't long enough! Safety Harbor is a lovely little town with plenty of options to eat out and shops to browse and everyone is very friendly and welcoming. It's also an easy drive to the Clearwater coastline for marvellous sunsets and days at the beach. Dunedin is a particularly attractive town and close to Honeymoon island. We are also big Ice Hockey fans and chose the area initially for its closeness to Tampa. An easy drive into the city and once there there is much to see and do in the area around the Amalie Arena. We still never managed to visit Ybor City though!"

  • The Best Ever Grannie Camp by the Sea

    "Each year we try to gather in all of our 6 offspring +a nephew & their crews for Grannie (that's me) Camp at our place in N.GA. Honestly, it's hard to accomplish w/ everyone's busy schedule. This year my oldest son wanted to take his crew to Disney World. So, okay. I'll find someplace in FL, Gulf side (because it is so beautiful). I needed a big place. WOW!!! Birds of Paradise (BoP) so exceeded the pics. 9 beds & 9 baths & plenty of space for littles (air mattresses & a pull out sofa in the middle house). NO, it is not as pristine as the photos. (the spa doesn't work: but who cares? the ocean calls!!) But, at its heart, it is SO very fantastic/magical. What memories we made! The 3 houses are in a line on the marina. Not in a U as the pics would lead you to think. Stuff we did:Hired a boat to pick up some us off the dock for cruising!!! BIG dock. Parasailing. Walking the beach bar crawling! BoP features multiple gathering places for late night owls and early morning larks. There is a great blue heron that visits every morning. Babies & Granddaddy could nap during the day:no problem. Others could party the sun up. Fishing off the dock. The pool is wonderful. Shallow enough for the littles and then the deep end for the tweens/teens. I swear I heard "Marco Polo" 12 zillion times!! A dozen+ poolside tables & umbrella! And when it comes to the ocean, the white sand beach is a short block walk away to the west and then a troop through the dunes. Sunset watching EVERY night. Our family likes to cook so the kitchen in the big house was a dream: double stove tops, double ovens, double microwaves, BIG subzero fridge & freezer PLUS a big-out-the-wazoo cooler & freezer off the kitchen w/ 2 double industrial sized washer & dryers. The big house is so spacious. We played bingo and Cranium and cards/coloring stuff strewn all over those wonderful rugs. And, yes, the piano was played, along w/ some guitar sing alongs. While I think BoP is more often used as a party site, it is the PERFECT place for a family party. It is so spread out w/ so many gathering places. The beds are comfy. There are grocery stores & bottle shops close by. The property manager set up us w/ a local photographer to take a group photo. Wonderful!! I brought an extra fold out table (there were a lot of us!) and I wish I had brought my favorite paring knife. Other than that, BoP provides paper towels, TP, garbage bags (pick up 2x a week) and a multitude of pots&pans in the big house. 5 stars"

  • Escaping PA winter

    "My husband and I (and our dogs) spent the week of Christmas 2013 at this rental property. The house is absolutely beautiful--the perfect place to compliment the natural beauty of Crystal River. I particularly enjoyed the jetted tub in the master bedroom! We hope to rent this home again, possibly with another couple. The house offers privacy for two couples as each of the two bedrooms (on different floors) has its own bath. The tiled floors are wonderful for bringing your pets along. From the laundry room, to the well-equipped kitchen, to the grill out on the deck, this home offers the traveler anything that he might need for a comfortable stay. The use of kayaks and bicycles is also a bonus, and the owners are very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this rental property to anyone who asked about a place to stay in Crystal River!"
