Stopped to see all the decorations and unique uses of bowling balls. As a resident of Safety Harbor and an avid league and tournament bowler, I obviously could not miss out on seeing this fascinating house.

We took the kiddos out here for the day and absolutely enjoyed seeing all the unique and creative artwork. We walked around the grounds for a little bit taking pictures and enjoying it all before heading downtown to see the rest.

We like interesting things, so naturally we had to see this. It’s very artsy and unique. However it needs a little clean up. The area was looking ran down almost as though no one lived there. It’s a must see if you are in the...More

Brought a friend to see this one-of-a-kind home. Nearby homes are "decorating" in the same style now, making it well worth the trip!

The Whimzey Bowling Ball House is something to see when visiting charming Safety Harbor. With many local artisans in the area, the Whimzey house is a showcase of sorts for some of these artists. Stop in and check out the whimzey.

Owner owns the Safety Harbor Arts Center, off 2nd St. it’s a glass menagerie, as you are greeted by a large painted elephant. Music, poetry slam, art store, gallery, VERY friendly crowd. Love it!

One man in our group put it best, "It gave me goosebumps" because of the amount of creativity that is packed into every nook and cranny of the house and gardens. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this place is a bounty...More

Daytime hours are best. Sometimes there are home tours for fundraisers but this is the artists home , so is not open to the public most times. Well worth the time to visit.
