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 !

Great weekend getaway

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

Our favourite place in Clearwater area.

Weekend trip

Excellent accommodations. Walking distance to quaint downtown bars and restaurants. Breakfast was excellent.

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!

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.

Serenity in Safety Harbor B&B

5 on February 07, 2016

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!
