About the Property
Enjoy The Charm Of Safety Harbor Just Footsteps To The Bay.
Centrally located to beaches (12 miles to spectacular Clearwater Beach), the two area airports (15 miles to Tampa International Airport or 10 miles to St Pete/Clearwater Airport) and Busch Gardens (22 miles).
Walk 7 short 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, you can enjoy Safety Harbor's 3rd Friday outdoor street festival with live music at the gazebo and street vendors (food and arts/crafts)
Walk 3 short blocks north 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).
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

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 between this home and another home one block away, I made Safety Harbor my home for 18 years. My neighbors became 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. I have since moved closer to my tennis courts. Once I can't play tennis anymore, I'll be back in Safety Harbor.
Why the Owner Chose Safety Harbor, FL, USA:
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.
