Explanation of Fees - **

In addition to the nightly rental, cleaning fee, Florida State and Local Taxes there are a couple of line items that we'd like to explain:

Traveler Service Fee - this is charged by and paid to VRBO and is not set or controlled by the owner/host.

Property Fee – Since we don’t charge a Security Deposit, this is a Damage Protection Fee that covers damage to the property up to a limit of $1500. Damages more than this amount will be charged to the guest.

Administrative Fee – (aka Pet Fee) this is our default non-refundable additional cleaning fee for pets. Since we are pet-friendly and most of our guests travel with pets, this fee will be added to all reservations.
If you are not traveling with a pet, please call or send a message through VRBO to us know and we will be gladly removing this fee from your reservation, or issue a refund for this fee if you Instant Book.

Property Manager
Hi, this is John and Ellen, your fun loving hosts at Casa la Cala!

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 a IT manager in a software company now. 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 amazing house located at the heart of Safety Harbor and surrounded by stunning nature. After a complete renovation, both inside and outside, Casa la Cala was born. :)

This is a home designed for a fun Florida life style, Nature Watching in the grant Wrap around deck, horseshoe pit game with friends, and so much more.

Your Next Vacation is Here Waiting, just Relax and Leave the Rest to Your Trusted hosts John and Ellen.
