Hello,

I will be working at Bay Pines, my wife is an RN and has gotten positive feedback from Morton Plant and it seems like a very nice hospital.

Google maps says 20 minutes to Morton Plant (300 Pinellas Street, Clearwater) and 37 minutes to Bay Pines VA. How accurate is this for a work week commute around 7am going and 4pm returning.

Thanks

haha, sorry about that.

This is going from Safety Harbor to Morton Plant (for my wife) and Bay Pines (for me).

That's not my commute, but rush hour here is not very long. Generally, traffic is light at 7am, and, at 4pm, you'll see the beginnings of the afternoon rush, but you'll beat most of it. So google times should be pretty much right. If you get stuck at work until 5, I'd double the google time.

Thanks, what location would be best for a safety harbor type neighborhood and schools in the 400-500k range if one person was working at Bay Pines and the other at St. Josephs in Tampa?

When you say "Safety Harbor type" do you mean in the little tiny downtown, bayfront, or in one of the gated/cookie-cutter developments? I'm not sure what sort of "feel" you're looking for.

If you're looking for gated/cookie-cutter, that's Safety Harbor and north (East Lake, Westchase, etc.), so SH is your best bet from a commute perspective.

If you're OK without gated/cookie-cutter, (1) northeast St. Pete (400-500k means Old NE, Snell Isle, waterfront further north) would be shorter to Bay Pines and about the same time as Safety Harbor to St. Joseph's; and (2) South Tampa would be a very easy commute to St. Joseph's and about the same time as Safety Harbor to Bay Pines.

I certainly dont need a gated cookie cutter but not against it. I do need a 4 bedroom and we normally do not like older homes, probably want to stay in this century.

When I say SH feel, I mean good schools, family neighborhood. I keep reading prior posts about St. Pete NE but the homes are much more then 500k.

Most southern Pinellas and Tampa neighborhoods were developed a long time ago. So very light inventory on homes from this century, and I'd expect the newer homes are priced accordingly. I mean, I'm sure you can find 4-bedroom homes for under $500k in northeast St. Pete, but I'm not sure they'll fit your age and other requirements. Anyway, most newer construction is further north (frequently in planned/gated communities), and not terribly convenient to Bay Pines or Tampa, let alone both. Tough situation, depending on your commute requirements. SH may be your best bet.

If one is at Bay Pines and one in Clearwater and you want a nice neighborhood with good schools, consider Seminole, about 20 mins from both, and Seminole is middle, with beaches close by.
