  • Our stay in the Hacienda on Prospect couldn't have been more perfect. Brace was a wonderful host and always available for some friendly banter. The house itself was amazing, both inside and outside. Everyone was immaculately clean and furnished beautifully with lots of love and attention to detail. The photos portrayed the interior exactly, and we loved all the sunshine and decor.
    Everything was according to the description, and we even took the beach umbrellas out for a few afternoons.
    The location was very ideal for us, a short drive from both our office and the beach. This is truly a lovely home and I highly recommend it!

  • House was charming, however beds are very uncomfortable which made it difficult to sleep well. Host came in unannounced while we were out the very next day and turned the AC units up which made the house warm when we came back to it and tried to sleep. The second bedroom fan is broken, the host brought a stand up fan in. The first bedroom has a small tv in it but the second bedroom does not, only the hook up is there. Area is older and neighborhood is small with narrow streets and old houses.

    Response from Bruce:

    Not sure if they read the house rules that were provided. They reported a broken ceiling fan, so I brought in a stand-up fan to use. Noticed the a/c was set to 70 degrees, and the house rules stated no lower than 74.

  • My experience was great, it's a very nice house and fully equipped for everything, more so than most places that I've stayed at, certainly!
    It is located in a good little area that isn't far from the beaches or from stuff that is inland.
    Bruce was very helpful and quickly attended to any issues that came up. I would highly recommend it!

  • Hacienda on Prospect is a beautifully decorated home with easy access to the beach, downtown, and biking/running trails. Great spot for a girls' getaway or a family vacation. Full kitchen with plenty of room for preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lovely back porch for evening conversation. Bruce was very helpful and even offered to bring over a DVD player for us to use during our stay. He provided a cooler, beach towels, and an umbrella for use at the beach. I would highly recommend Hacienda on Prospect.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Clearwater at Bruce's Hacienda. The house has been beautifully restored and decorated. There is no clutter and the house was super clean. It is a short drive to both downtown Clearwater and Clearwater Beach. We highly recommended staying here and will stay here again next time we need to be in the area. Thanks Bruce!

About
We own a software company specializing in digital dictation and transcription solutions. Our "hobby" has been renovating old homes here in the Magnolia Park neighborhood of Clearwater. We have 3 vacation rental properties that we maintain ourselves. One of our daughters and her family live 2 doors down from us, with 3 grandchildren that keep us hopping. We love the location - close to downtown Clearwater, yet just a short ride to the beautiful beaches of Clearwater, Indian Rocks and Dunedin (Caladesi Island and Honeymoon Island). We love to bicycle, boat, swim, and enjoy fun times with our family and friends! We hope you can make it to our special part of the Gulf Coast that we call home...
