About Lori Heffner

I moved to this home in Safety Harbor in 1999 from one block away because I loved Safety Harbor and this neighborhood so much. I made this place 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've since moved closer to my tennis facility, but when I can't play tennis anymore, I'll be back in Safety Harbor.

Lori Heffner purchased this house in 1999

Why Lori Heffner chose Safety Harbor

This home is tucked away in a neighborhood just 3 houses from the bay under the canopy of the oaks. 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

May Trip

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our last visit to Safety Harbor. The location was great, we could walk to downtown or to Philippe Park. The kitchen was extremely well outfitted with dishes and cookware, and I really enjoyed sitting on the porch in the morning with my coffee.

A clean & comfortable home from home, close to the bay in a quiet, mature subdivision

  • 5 of 5

From booking to deposit return, the process with Lori via Homeaway went well from start to finish.

The house is an ample size and well equipped for a family group of four or more. Enough furnishings and decor to make it feel more like a home than a rental. All equipment worked fine and there were enough supplies and sufficient written guidance to get started with. Plenty of wildlife outside due to mature trees and yards, quiet neighborhood and proximity to bay and Philippe Park. Convenient location for exploring the Clearwater-Tampa-St Pete area and beyond. Safety Harbor center has some smaller stores and restaurants (bigger stores not far away) and from the public pier we saw manatees as promised.

Minor gripes: Wife found master bed too firm (but husband found it ok). Green herons nesting in the trees are a plus except cars parked below are a target (no access to garage that we could find). A couple of items of kitchen/dining furniture are in marginal condition. Some noise from low-flying aircraft due to airports not far away to the east and south.

Bottom line: Met expectations; highly recommended.
