About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms/2 Baths King & Queen

Don’t settle for less.

“Seadog,” an enchanting two-bed room, two-bath cottage, sets the standard for comfortable elegance, offering high-end accommodations for corporate housing, seasonal visitors, vacationers, job relocations, or anyone displaced by home renovations or insurance repairs.

Located in the heart of charming downtown Safety Harbor, Fla., on old Tampa Bay, the Seadog Cottages complex is two blocks off Main Street and steps from famous Safety Harbor Spa, Starbucks, Coldstone Creamery, quaint bungalow restaurants, shopping boutiques, wine bars, local hangouts and sunrise walks to the City Marina and fishing pier.

Seadog Cottages is not someone’s investment property with second-hand furnishings rented periodically to offset expenses. Seadog Cottages -- the 2/2 Seadog, the 2/2 Duval House and 1/1 Schooner’s Place -- is professionally managed and maintained with 365-days-a-year focus on amenities, details and creating memorable guest experiences.

Wrap yourself in the comfort of Seadog’s open floor plan, featuring a comfortable living area with 46-inch flat screen TV and HD signal, original artwork, fully-equipped kitchen, screened lanai with flat-screen TV and, outdoor garden/patio grilling area.

The master bedroom suite offers a king-size bed, 1,000-count sheets, walk-in closet, 42-inch flat screen TV, chase lounge and private bathroom with rain-head shower. The second bedroom offers a queen-size bed and 40-inch flat screen.

Featured on the ABC television series “Sweet Retreats,” Seadog Cottages is a true get-away experience. The obsessively maintained grounds are private, secluded, lushly and beautifully landscaped. Water features, lawn art, seashells and palm trees leave no doubt you are in a Florida paradise.

You may never want to leave but if you must Seadog Cottages is conveniently located -- Tampa’s International Airport and exclusive Westshore shopping and business district is 20 minutes away and the area’s celebrated Gulf Beaches are a 10-mile drive.

Or stay closer to home and use Seadog’s complimentary bicycles to explore numerous trails and nearby 122-acre Philippe Park, its Indian mound listed in the National Register of Historic Landmarks. The historically rich park bares the name of French explorer Count Odet Philippe, who introduced the grapefruit to Florida.

Major League Baseball Spring Training and minor league teams are minutes away. Teams include Phillies, Blue Jays and Yankees.

Or we can help with scheduling golf and fishing trips.

And we are dog friendly.

Everything you need for home-away-from-home living awaits.

Seadog Cottages: Sit. Stay. Relax.

About The Owner

After 25 years living in South Tampa we were ready to experience our love for Key West living and found it in Safety Harbor. Mick (retired sports writer) and Desanya (working! commercial property manager) reside in the main house and look forward to welcoming guests to the newly renovated cottage. Our family includes rescued Border Collies Truman, Mallory and Fausto with the new addition of Louie the goldendoodle. We are living our dream in downtown Safety Habor, walking to the marina every morning to see the sunrise, and strolling back home in the evenings after sampling our favorite beverages. As the locals like to say, 'It's Mayberry on the Bay.'

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida Central West

We wanted and found a small-town waterfront-village with the benefits of a metropolitan area. Just 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport, 20 minutes from white sandy beaches, and upscale shopping.


Close to one of the best dog parks in the Tampa Bay area, Honeymoon Island Beach, and walking distance to fabulous restaurants.

Exceptional Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Seadog Cottages - we stayed at the Duval House the 1st time and at Seadog Cottage last week. These properties are exceptional in their construction, layout, comfort, cleanliness, décor and furnishings. So much detail and thought has been given to ensuring that one has a completely wonderful experience staying there. Desi and Mick are warm, wonderful and accessible owners! They can come decorate my home! We will surely stay here whenever visiting family and friends in FL. Cannot imagine staying anywhere else!

Simply adorable!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this cottage! My daughter had surgery in Tampa, and I was looking for a nice place for her to recover for a few days. It was perfect! Not only was it beautiful, it was cozy and very clean. It contained everything you would need, plus more! (Gift basket with goodies included!) The outside was as beautiful as the inside. Mick and Desi were wonderful! They made sure we had everything we needed, and were able to advise us on local restaurants and activities in the area. It was a quick walk over to Main St that had a variety of restaurants and quaint shops. Tupelo on 4th was my favorite shop! I love to ride bikes, and there are numerous biking trails within riding distance. The bay was within walking distance as well. Beautiful sunset views from the pier! Don't miss out this opportunity!

This is a vacation HOME, not just a rental!

  • 5 of 5

I will start by saying that this was my first solo HomeAway rental. I have done many group vacation rentals before and this experience far surpassed anything I was expecting. The property is gorgeous and extremely well maintained, with a hint of whimsy. Fun decor align the walkways along with a tranquil fountain. From the moment I arrived I immediately felt relaxed. The inside of the cottage was so much more than I expected. Desi and Mick are absolutely amazing at what they do. Each room was designed as if it were their own home. All the comforts and decor of a "home" and not just a rental. They have thought of every need and want that you could possible have and offered it.

Just a few min walk and you are in downtown Safety Harbor, which I describe as an old school beach town. The town offers charming shops and great restaurants.

I fell completely in love with this town as well as Desi & Micks place! Cannot wait to return!

Quaint, quiet cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding rental; the owners clearly take pride in the property and have made sure that the cottage is equipped with everything you could need. It is immaculate. The owners are immediately responsive to any questions you might have and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. We took advantage of being able to walk to the many restaurants available in downtown Safety Harbor. It is a short drive to the Clearwater beaches. Beach chairs, an umbrella and beach towels were provided. I would recommend this rental with no hesitation!

Couldn't have been a more perfect experience. Charming location, privacy, amenities were top notch. Desanya and Mick are gracious and generous hosts. Very accessible and responsive. It was truly a delightful week that we wished wouldn't end.

Fabulous Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is our most favorite place of any rental we've been to. The owners are wonderful - they know how to meet every need. The cottages and grounds are as charming as possible. You really feel like you're on vacation when you come here. Bikes are a major plus for us. Nothing makes me feel like vacation more than not getting in the car. Location, location, location ...PERFECT! Safetey Harbor is a sweet town with the bay all in walking distance. FABULOUS experience once again.
