Seadog Cottages: Coastal Living In Downtown Safety Harbor, Florida
Leave nothing to chance.
“Duval House,” a new-construction, two-bedroom, two-bath get-away, is a Seadog Cottages property, meaning it sets a standard all its own.
With open floor plan, vaulted ceiling, custom furnishings, four flat-screen televisions, designer ceiling fans, covered parking and private backyard screen-porch and outdoor living, Duval House offers exceptional style to seasonal visitors, vacationers, job relocations, corporate housing 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 an investment property furnished with left-over furniture and kitchenware, then rented periodically to offset expenses. Seadog Cottages -- the 2/2 Duval House, 2/2 Seadog and 1/1 Schooner’s Place -- is professionally managed and maintained with fulltime focus on amenities, details and creating memorable guest experiences.
Duval House delivers a “wow factor” with bright colors, plush and eclectic furnishings, original artwork, 50-inch living-area flat screen television, fully-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, comfortable beds and pure livability.
The master bedroom features a king-size bed, 1,000-count sheets, private bathroom, step-in closet, ceiling fan and 42-inch television. A queen-size mattress, flat screen and ceiling fan grace the guest room.
Outdoor living is every bit as impressive, featuring a 300-plus square foot screen lanai with comfortable furniture, 42-inch television and secondary dining area, plus an outdoor patio with loungers, outdoor table and chairs, and grilling area. Surrounded by palm trees, colorful, exotic plants and water feature, there is no mistaking you are in a Florida paradise.
Nothing was overlooked in design and preparation of this vacation home and 'go the extra mile' was Rule One for construction and design decisions. This is a must-see getaway site for those with discriminating taste.
And don’t overlook the convenient location.
Beautiful Gulf Coast beaches, upscale shopping, food stores, golf courses, fishing, attractions and Tampa International Airport and the upscale Westshore shopping/business district are all within easy driving distance. Major League Baseball spring training games and minor league teams -- Phillies, Blue Jays and Yankees -- are minutes away.
Also, we are dog friendly.
Seadog Cottages: Sit. Stay. Relax.

About Desanya Daly
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 (Desi) working commercial property manger look forward to welcoming guests in this new- construction home. Our family includes rescued Border Collies Truman, Mallory & Fausto with Golden Doodle Louie. We are living our dream in downtown Safety Harbor, walking to the marina every morning to see the sunrise and be able to walk to wonderful restaurants and bars. As the locals like to say, 'It's Mayberry on the Bay!'
Desanya Daly purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Desanya Daly chose Safety Harbor
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.

An Oasis in Safety Harber
This was our best VRBO experience ever. This place has it all, great beds, 4 flat screen TVs in and outside, a great screen deck and a nice outdoor grill. Capital R for a relaxing place. The inside is pristine, clean and modern will all new furniture. The owners (Desi and Mick) live next door and are great hosts. We'll be back.
It’s our second visit and just as lovely as first one. Perfect place to relax and enjoy the sweet town of Safety Harbor. Already planning another trip and would always make this the first choice to stay.
We had a marvelous week with this sweet cottage as our headquarters in the area. We enjoyed a quiet neighborhood which is truly only a few steps to downtown and very good restaurants. The cottage has spacious and comfortable rooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, and comfortable beds. Hosts were around and very accommodating. We particularly loved the outside, screened patio and the garden beyond. We would happily return.
Location, location, location. Seadog Cottages are in a very safe area, where it's a pleasant, easy walk to restaurants, boutiques, and the water.
We were charmed by Safety Harbor and surprised by how close this quaint town is to Clearwater and the Tampa Airport!
I've never seen a property so well equipped. Duval House is light, cheerful, open, and yet private.
Mick and Desi are delightful. You can't do better than Seadog Cottages.
We are so happy you enjoyed the Duval House and Safety Harbor! Thank you and we hope to see you back real soon!
PERFECT House in the heart of a really cute town.
Great Location - SHORT walks to many local restaurants, shave ice, Starbucks, etc.
Great House - Feels like your home, not a rental, back patio and porch are both heavenly, comfy beds
Great Owners - Incredibly hospitable, above and beyond yet completely out of your hair if that is your desire
Honeymoon Beach is beautiful
Safety Harbor is a great little town - safe and quiet but plenty to do. Beautiful park within walking distance to house. We will be back.
Our stay at the Duval House was one way beyond our expectations. Desi and Mick have done an amazing job with the decor inside and out. The house is so well equipped with everything and anything one would ever need for every day as well as entertaining. Our stay was relaxing, enjoyable and pleasant-a vacation we will never forget. We have wonderful memories and wish we could have stayed longer!!!! Desi and Mick also offer a pass for Honeymoon Island - white sands, pretty beach not far from the house.
The canvas" welcome bag" filled with goodies etc. is a nice "greeting". We understand they leave treats for dog(s) if you bring your dog(s). We did not bring our dogs and missed them terribly, but seeing Desi and Mick walking their beautiful dogs gave us our "doggie fix" until we got home.
Another plus of The Duval House is the convenient location to beautiful downtown Safety Harbor. A great walk anytime of day or night. Also it is a quick drive to nearby grocery stores, etc.
Our only regret is it is not available next year :-(
Thank you, Desi and Mick for making our very first month long stay in Florida one we will always treasure. The Duval House is top of the line.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! And you are on the list should anyone cancel next year. And being your dog next time!! Thank you again for leaving the Duval House is such good condition! You are awesome guest and welcome back anytime!
