An oasis in our journey!

5 on June 01, 2016

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 !


It was nice

3.6 on May 15, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Amazing Bed and Breakfast!

5 on March 21, 2016

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.


Play Ball!

5 on March 15, 2016

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


Our local getaway

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.


Great mini vacation

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.
