We wanted to visit and search for a property in the area . Needless to say, Helene was the perfect connection in the area and a wealth of knowledge. So pleasant and excellent in what she does. All areas are spotless and full of tasteful detail. Now that we found our vacation home, I'll be referring friends over !

The accommodations were very nice. Just what I needed. Everything was supplied in the kitchen so I could cook at home. I think the cost was a little high. I could rent a house through VRBO in Safety Harbor for 600 a week. I would definitely come back if the cost wasn't so high. $1645.00 for a week was really high. The owner was delightful though. I did love the small side yard though, that was very nice. I did buy a second chair so I could have some company. All in all, the cost is my only problem.
To clarify your rate: The Haven apartment is just off Main Street. Your week's stay in Florida "high season" INCLUDED 13% tax and cleaning fee, making it $189/night for this private 1+ BR apartment with full amenities and kitchen, bath, living room, patio, CH/A, wifi, cable TV, parking. Return guests take 15% discount, hope to see you again.

Great B & B in Safety Harbour. Room, food, and Helene (owner) were fabulous. Easy walking distance to local brewery, shops, and great dining.

We have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts and this was by far....the best we stayed out. Lovely decor, scrumptious food, comfortable and clean rooms and a hostess with wonderful knowledge of the area and the ability to make you feel comfortable and "at home"! The breakfast menu was varied, delicious and full of healthy choices. I highly recommend this wonderful bed and breakfast and hope to go back! Thanks to Helene for your very fine hospitality.

We stayed at Ibis. Because it is close to the Spring baseball ballparks. Aside from that, Helene is a great hostess. Breakfasts were very good and attractive. We were there for 7 days and there were no repeats . The rooms were well appointed and not only did you have a room, but access to eating area, sitting area and outside sitting. Tourist information was provided, both printed and verbal. This was our second visit and hope for more! Dave and Sue

In a world that keeps moving faster and faster, we were able to come over from Lakeland and have a wonderful getaway for a few moments. This BandB was comfortable, accessible, wonderful service, and just perfect for us.

Check in was smooth, we were greeted by Helene at the door and she made sure we were comfortable. Great breakfasts and filling. She had a lot of knowledge on the area and events that were going on.

This was my first trip to Tampa/Safety Harbor. As I was traveling by myself, I decided to splurge on a B&B. Helene was very welcoming and made me feel at home. The rooms were cozy & quiet, breakfast was delicious!!!, and the location was within walking distance of many restaurants and a microbrewery (Crooked Thumb). I will be back next time I am in Tampa/safety harbor!

My wife and I spent two nights at Ibis and couldn't have been more pleased. Helene is wonderful host, town is cute as can be, breakfasts (the onsite dining) were wonderful. Try the Grouper Sandwich anyplace in town!

We loved our stay. The ibis felt like home. We enjoyed the living room and games and tv. The refrigerator was a nice bonus allowing use to bring back left overs and save money.

Ibis has lots of pleasant details in decorating and hospitality. We feel that we could stay for a week and still be making new discoveries.

My fiance and I were in town for a wedding and absolutely enjoyed our stay at Ibis. Our host was very sweet and made the most delicious breakfast for us. Overall experience was excellent, room was immaculate and comfortable. Loved having the ability to walk to a few local establishments, and be close enough to the wedding site (near the Spa). Highly recommend this place!

Helene was as warm and lovely as her B&B. It was so warm and inviting that my husband Jerry & myself feel we were right at home in Oklahoma. We both fell in love with it right away. The food was delightful and the hospitality was very comforting to us both as one day we hope to own our very own B&B

We spent two days at the Ibis and found it to be a most pleasant experience. The rooms are spotless, with various themes...Lakeside, the Garden Room, etc. and tastefully decorated to provide an oasis in the midst of life's chaos. A common room and the breakfast area radiate warmth. The breakfasts are delicious and full, with eggs, meat, muffins, fruit, endless coffee, etc. Helene Shepard, the innkeeper extraordinaire, keeps her guests happy, welcoming them with a personal touch and a delightfully friendly personality. Safety Harbor provides a lovely place to explore with good restaurants, a beautiful view of Tampa Bay, and guests may swim at the world-famous Safety Harbor Spa. We will return to Ibis again and again!

We stayed here on our anniversary and what a treat it was! Our room was fabulous, wonderfully decorated and comfortable. The innkeeper went above and beyond to ensure that we had a fantastic stay. We walked downtown and visited the quaint downtown. We borrowed some towels and went to Clearwater Beach, only about 20 minutes from the b&b. It was quiet and we completely fell in LOVE with the breakfasts. I highly recommend this to anyone coming to this area, so much more personal than a chain hotel. Great job and we'll be back next time we're in Florida!
