4. Fun Facts that You have to know :)

Casa del Tren, Spanish name for the Train House, is fondly named because of its unique location. Safety Harbor is an old railroad town and as such, one remote end of Casa del Tren's yard is bordered by the railway.

Yes, a train does come by every now and then, typically 6 to 8 cars, that come and go in less than a minute. You may stay for days and never see or hear a single train. But if you are blessed with good luck and hear one passing by, would you please log it down and share with us in the guest book? :)

Hi, this is John and Ellen, your fun loving hosts at Casa del Tren -The Train House!

I grew up on a working farm in Nashville TN. Raising horses, goats and going to fairs to show our award winning Shorthorn cattle has occupied my earlier years. I am currently a IT manager in a software company, my hobbies involves renovating houses, gardening, cooking, and entertaining friends and family.

My wife Ellen was born in China, a true city girl, her interests are more into fashion & Electrical Engineering. She came to the states to research high-voltage transmission, but I really think she came here to find my secret BBQ recipes and me. ☺

We love to travel together and have been to Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Vancouver... Everywhere we go, we try to stay away from hotels, staying with locals is way more interesting.

When we first discovered the Safety Harbor community, it impressed us as the most unique and hidden gem in the entire Tampa bay area - A quintessential small town, yet filled with lively southern charm.

We immediately fell in love with this town, especially the most friendly and fun people.

We found this cute little cottage located at the heart of Safety Harbor. A house designed for a fun Florida life style, and that is exactly what we would love for you and your family to experience at Casa del Tren.

John and Ellen purchased this House in 2017

Why John and Ellen chose Safety Harbor
One of the things we love about Tampa Bay is that it is not one huge metropolitan area, but a collection of cities, small towns and neighborhoods.

Safety Harbor reminds me of some of the small towns in the area where I grew up. Visiting Safety Harbor is like taking a trip back in time. Time just seems to slow down, people smile and say hello, the area is very walkabout and bike friendly.

This charming house has the spirit of Old Florida, from its unique color that reminds me of the waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the driveway made of brick pavers and sea shells.

Once you experience everything this property and this area has to offer, you won't want to leave, and when you do - you'll start planning your next trip back!

What makes this House unique
One of Casa del Tren’s many unique benefits is its perfect location:

1. Located just 2 blocks off Main Street in Safety Harbor, you can step out the front door and walk to charming downtown Safety Harbor within a few minutes.

2. The stunning waterfront park and city marina is less than 1 mile away.

3. Safety Harbor is centrally located to the Greater Tampa Bay area. You can be in Clearwater, Tampa, or St Pete in minutes!

If you are a bicyclist, as I am, you'll be able to bike everywhere! Downtown Safety Harbor is connected to an extensive network of bike trails that will take you to all parts of Tampa Bay.
