Hi, This is John, and my lovely wife Ellen ☺

We are your fun loving hosts at Casa del Tren!

I often joke with others that I am one of the 12 born-and-raised Nashvillians that still live in Nashville.

I grew up on a farm in Nashville TN. Raising horses, goats and going to fairs to show our Shorthorn cattle has occupied my earlier years. I am currently managing IT in a software company which has an office in the Tampa Bay Area. When I am not pounding on the keyboard, I involve myself in 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 me and my secret BBQ recipes ☺

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 you come and visit the Safety Harbor community, you will find the MOST unique and hidden gem in the entire Tampa bay area!

A quintessential small town, yet filled with lively southern charm, the most Friendly & Fun Locals!
