We returned to the Ibis this past March. We stayed here in 2016, as well and were so glad to return. Helene is a gracious host and so kind and considerate. We love Safety Harbour...great restaurants...close to beaches and they had some amazing Festivals while we were there. Helene prepares delcicious breakfasts. Our room was spotless, beautiful windows and decor..We highly recommend this B and B.
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 !
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.
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!
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!
Super clean, Super Quiet, Super Breakfast!!! Hostess was so welcoming. We just loved this place and cannot say enough about it!! Safety harbor has a real treasure. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast, and I have stayed at a lot of them!
