  • Gary and I are still in "relax" mode even though we woke up this morning to snow!!!! This little gem of a home is a wonderful place to come unwind and get away from it all. Carroll was the best host - there when you needed her, providing interesting factoids @ the area. Our room upstairs in the main house worked out great - king bed was super comfortable, bathroom was clean and provided plenty of towels. A frig and coffee maker rounded out food and beverage needs. You can walk everywhere. Words cannot properly described the views from our window each day. And the sunsets are even better sitting in your chairs with a bottle of wine sharing the ending of the day. Thank you Carroll. You are very special woman and I believe you have another adventure awaiting you. Safe travel my dear.

  • Location is everything: right on the beach and a view of the gulf from the room. Only wish we could have stayed there longer (like 20 years or so!!). House is a really cool, vintage place, and a very short walk into town with shops/restaurants.

    Carol was very helpful and pleasant, hoping I can get a chance to return someday!

  • Thanks Carroll! We enjoyed our stay in this super charming original beach house! Perfect location on a quiet street, with an easy walk to downtown, and great walk into the State Park!

  • What a wonderful experience. We watched the sunset on the gulf from the sofa in the living room, RIGHT on the beach! It was walking distance to all restaurants/stores but, private enough not to hear the hussle and bussle. We couldn't have been any closer to the water without getting wet. It was like we were on our own private beach. We stayed in the 'bungihigh'(free upgrade since she could). It was adorable and very clean. Had a great beach feel. Carroll couldn't have been any nicer or more considerate. She was willing to leave us alone if that is what we wanted, but since we like chatting, she made us coffee and we all sat on the patio and listened to the waves. We can't recommend her place enough if you are planning to be anywhere near Clearwater. we miss you already carroll, and can't wait to come visit again.

  • To start with, Carroll ended up upgrading us to the 'Bungahigh,' one of her other listings. The location is absolutely perfect; the house can't be more than 20 steps from the water. I would call what we stayed in an apartment. It was very clean and decorated in this boho beach style that was really cute. You could watch the sunset from your window! It was so lovely to have view of the ocean at all times and to go to sleep to the sound of waves crashing on the beach. The amenities were also wonderful. Everything worked just as it should and I was left extremely satisfied. Carroll is a fabulous host and did everything she could to make the experience as fun as possible. She was happy to suggest places to go and activities to do. She went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. I loved staying here and plan to return in the future.

    Thank you Olivia, I'm so glad you two had a good time, welcome back anytime!

  • Carrolls place is gorgeous. If you like to stay in a cozy, bright and clean room with a private bath directly on the white sandy beach – take it! If you like to be close to the gulf with the amazing dolphins and manatees - take it! If you like to stay far off from the tourist areas but close enough to have the chance to go out for dinner or a drink in a nice bar – take it!

    My boy friend and I were Carrolls first guest. We requested her place only one day in advance and she accepted prompt. What luck! We were very impressed about the area where Carrolls house is located since our lonely planet had not as much good words for Clearwater beach. Due to our tight schedule we could unfortunately only stay 2 nights but when ever we come back to Florida we will definitely visit Carroll. We enjoyed walking for hours along the wide beach and relaxed on her beautiful terrace. We missed the bars and restaurants close by while talking with her about the world.

    Dear Carroll we would like to say thank you again for sharing with us your peace of paradise. Thank you for the very warm welcome and the fun we had together. We feel honored being your first airbnb guests and meeting you of course. We wish you always nice guests and we will recommend your place to our family and friends.

    Thank you so much karola and Andre! You are still my first and best guests ever! Hope to see you again someday, safe travels an every happy holiday season to you both!

  • The photos do not do this gorgeous place justice! I could hear & see the waves from my bed,carrying my coffee & breakfast the 20 paces to the beach I sat with the sun rising watching the dolphins swim along :0) Carroll is totally cool, lovely company & very respectful of a guest's space. Don't hesitate to book in here (you won't regret it :0)

  • I really enjoyed staying at Carroll's Gulf front private bath/entrance. I knew exactly what to expect beforehand because Carroll's description of the room is accurate and helpful. The entrance through the bath, while a little odd at first, is actually rather quaint and certainly memorable. I was pleasantly surprised by the couple of bottles of water and an orange awaiting me in the room - very thoughtful! The room is decorated tastefully and is not overly spacious but very comfortable for a short stay. I particularly liked the shower which is nice and large. It's also just a very short walk to the white sand beach of the gulf. Carroll is an excellent hostess who seems to be there when you need her but isn't obtrusive. I especially enjoyed talking with her on one of my evenings there! I would recommend Carroll's room and hope to return myself sometime in the future.

About
56, fun, active, hysterically funny, honest, non-imposing, respectful, kind and want my guests to enjoy themselves. Very lucky to have this little piece of paradise and love to share it with you. Originally from ny and Seattle, have travelled the world and found one of the best beaches ever for family fun or solitary beach walking. I joined airbnb in October of 2012 and have had so much fun meeting everyone and can honestly say have not had one bad experience or a guest I didn't enjoy! I know my picture is upside down...I like it that way, tends to make you see all sides of things :) I would like to say thanks to all of my wonderful guests that have enjoyed the beach with me...you guys are all wonderful people and I hope to see you all again someday! Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally out of control, worn out, shouting "holy shit...what a ride! "
