My family and I loved the bungalow! We felt right at home, the minute we walked through the door. It was clean, spacious and beautifully designed. My 21 month old son loved the porch swing and our daily morning walks around the neighborhood. We enjoyed the beach, aquarium, Tarpon Springs and local eateries over the week we were there. We wish we had another week! Hope to return soon.
Checking in was easy and the house was clean. Wi-fi worked well. We appreciated being able to use the washer & dryer after a week at an Orlando resort. The beach is an easy ten minute drive. The neighborhood is a mix of well maintained and run down homes, with a lot of doctor offices as well. We were awoken a few times by loud vehicles/stereos in the night. Our main complaint is that the listing states 'sleeps five comfortably,' which is not true. There is a double bed in one bedroom, and a twin daybed with twin trundle in the other - so beds for four. The fifth space is a couch, not futon or sofa bed but just a plain couch. I'm 5'5 and it felt too short for me. Fortunately we had an air bed with us, but I think the owners should either adjust the listing to 'Sleeps 4,' or provide a sofa bed or air mattress option.
Thanks so much for your feedback, Dave. There is a queen bed in the front bedroom and two twins in the back bedroom; as the listing says, three beds. We will talk about adding a sleeper sofa, but I think 6 people in the house is a lot for its size. Thanks for your thoughtful feedback.
My mom and I had a wonderful stay at the Speakeasy--our second time! We loved, as we did our previous stay, the Speakeasy's sweet, relaxing, cozy decor; the peaceful quiet of the neighborhood; and the proximity to downtown Clearwater. We slept soundly, lingered over breakfasts in the bright dining room, and loved all of Kelly & Joel's thoughtful touches (ranging from the fully equipped kitchen to sunscreen).
Thanks, Kelly and Joel, for another lovely time spent in our Clearwater "home"!
Kelly told us the key is under the mat! It was and what a lovely little place it was, the area turned out to really quiet, it was comfortable, the internet worked well, the air conditioning was excellent with the fans etc. the bed was really comfortable. Loved the wet room and the whole ambiance. For our visit to family two nights it was a perfect location. It turned out to be a friendly and safe neighbourhood , easy access to freeways etc.
Thanks again Kelly.
The house was lovely and the perfect home base for our weekend around Tampa and St. Petersburg. The house was very well set up with linens and cookware. The fans in every room kept the house nice and breezy in the heat and humidity.
The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The shower took a little figuring out, but was better than expected!
Kelly was extremely responsive and answered all of my questions immediately. I would stay here again for sure!
