Waterfront cottage with panoramic views of Tampa Bay
Wonderful Stay

I had such a wonderful stay at this beautiful cottage right on the water. The views could not have been better, wonderful walking and biking paths, and excellent and attentive hosts. I highly recommend this home. You won't regret it!

Stayed March, 2021

Thanks a lot for leaving that review Carol. Be safe and we will see you soon for your next visit! All the best, Bob and Vivian

Waterfront cottage with panoramic views of Tampa Bay
Our little piece of heaven!

This is our 5th house that we have rented in FL and this has been by far the best rental! You cannot ask for a better location being near parks and walks to downtown. Our hosts were so accommodating and they were definitely fun people! This will be our yearly home away from home!

Stayed February, 2021

Thank you so much for booking with us and for your kind review! We look forward to your next visit and hope you stay safe and keep in touch.
Thanks,
Bob and Vivian

Waterfront cottage with panoramic views of Tampa Bay
A wonderful retreat

Our visit was a wonderful a retreat from the business (and the winter) in Atlanta. We are older (78 and 79, and like to golf and fish with my guide of many years, Dan Malzzone), so the lovely cottage was perfect. We watched the sun come up over Tampa Bay in the morning (the water was 50 feet aways), visited the lovely park next door (Odet Phillipe's plantation on a Native American mound made of sand and shells, overlooking the bay- which was a great place to walk), and enjoyed the owners who lived in a house behind the cottage. Our 92 years old gardener was a delight. The location was quiet and people very kind. I would recommend this cottage and these owners to anyone who enjoyed natural beauty and peace and quiet.

Stayed January, 2021

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Kent! We enjoyed meeting you two very much and look forward to your next visit and some more good chatting.
Stay safe,
-Bob and Vivian

Waterfront cottage with panoramic views of Tampa Bay
One bright spot for us in 2020

My wife and I stayed at this cottage over the Christmas holidays while visiting her parents in nearby Clearwater. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, had every item necessary, and has an outstanding view of the bay (the photos do not do it justice). The owner (who lives nearby) came over and introduced himself, and had even provided snacks (ie crackers and cheese,, candy) as well as wine and other drinks in the refrigerator for us! Mr. Page was very personable and made sure we had everything we would use/need. The house has two decks (one at the entrance and the other off the screen porch) with chairs on both. My wife and I spend considerable time either in the screen porch or the deck admiring the view (both the sunrise and distant evening views of Tampa over the bay). There is a dedicated walkway/bike trail that runs in front of the house along the bay and was constantly in use with walkers/joggers/bikers. The Phillippe Park is only a half mile north of the house, and downtown Safety Harbor is about a mile south of the house. I would absolutely recommend this house for a couple looking to spend time exploring Safety Harbor and will definitely be renting this wonderful cottage in the near future. I should also add that it has WiFi (easy to log into) as well as two flat screen TVs. Again, couldn't be happier with our choice of this home.

Stayed December, 2020

Thank you very much for your stay and your review. We are thrilled that you caught some of the sunrises and that everything was to your liking!

Waterfront cottage with panoramic views of Tampa Bay
A bay view anyone would enjoy

It's such a cute house and the hosts Robert & Vivian are so kind stocking it with all ones needs and more making it feel like home. If your an early riser there are days 10 minutes before sunrise when the sky lights up in such a warm glow before the sun up over the water you feel all right with the world. Being a walker I could walk to Phillippe Park or the other way 18 mins. to downtown Safety Harbor. There a gas fireplace that can warm up a room and comfy places to read either outside in the screen porch, large window overlooking Tampa, or soft couches to lay on. Yes this will be a place to come back to with rich outdoor seating as well. There WIFI, Hulu, Netflix and more. Instead of all that I just recommend it a great place to unwind and you can not get a better view.

Stayed December, 2020

Thank you for your kind review! Please come back to visit sometime.
All the best,
-Bob & Vivian
