Getting There....Easy! Easy taxi service from airports, water taxi to the island, or bring your boat and pull into one of the slips! If using taxi services, please allow time for grocery shopping in advance of your scheduled water taxi. You will need to bring the items necessary for your planned meals, along with paper products for your stay (minimal paper products provided). Our home has a fully equipped kitchen (coffee maker, blender, mixer, microwave, cooking and baking essentials) and a charcoal grill is available to grill your fresh catch.

About Chris

We love the island and the escape it provides. We hope others will discover the ability to 'leave it all behind' as we do with each visit. Our desire is for others to enjoy our island escape, 'Sea Turtle' nest. Leo and Chris reside outside of Tampa where Chris is a nurse and the family stays busy with adult daughters and rediscovering childhood through our 8 year old son.

Chris purchased this Townhome in 2012

Why Chris chose Jose's Hideaway

Perfectly located at the Safety Harbor wharf to make 'moving in' a breeze. Climb out of your boat or the ferry and you are 'home'.

What makes this Townhome unique

Our completely renovated home has the most spacious kitchen of all the town homes and includes all the upgrades throughout the house. Watch the sunrise over the harbor from your lanai or golf cart to the beach for the best sunsets ever!

It was a quiet neighborhood and the neighbors were friendly. The owners were very responsive when I contacted them via email. Amenities were adequate.

Only complaints where that there is no water pressure in the showers, the water is really bad (which we knew ahead of time). Water smells like sulfur and is undrinkable. If staying here just make sure you buy a lot of water. Overall property was clean and well maintained. Peopke on island very welcoming and helpful. Beaches amazing! Property is located steps away from ferry dock which is super convenient.
