Had a wonderful time! Stayed with a few college friends for a weekend; house was clean and very nicely decorated. Overall a pleasant experience and I would definitely stay again. Thanks to Joel and Kelly being so responsive to my messages as well.

My husband and adult daughter and I had a great week at the bungalow. Although not large the house is very nicely decorated , clean and had just about everything we needed. My husband wanted a blender to make drinks and they offered to go out and buy one. The beach was only a 5 minute drive away and there is lots of shopping in the area. We enjoyed the front porch and the private back yard.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Speakeasy. The house was immaculate and comfortable; the kitchen stocked with all you need, even laundry supplies for the updated washer & dryer. Joel was very responsive by email and a most pleasant and helpful host in person. Cable TV & wifi, all you need in that area. The neighborhood is pleasant and close to downtown Clearwater. You will need to drive to Clearwater Beach. We found it a perfect 'home base' for trips to Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Duneiden and St Petersburg. O'Keefe's Irish Pub & Cristino's Italian are within close walking distance on Harrison. The Wildflower Cafe is a bit further, but still walkable. Check them out. The Malizias definitely give you a home away from home.
Recently, we stayed 8 nights at the bungalow. it was very clean and spacious. The kitchen was well-equipped, including a modern washer and dryer.
Joel was a very approachable and enthusiastic host. Kelly provided useful tips about places to eat.
This bungalow is a great bargain in Clearwater. Quaint. quirky and clean. Nice updated appliances in the kitchen including a washer and dryer. Very comfy bed and interesting antique furnishings. Beautiful live oak trees with spanish moss and a front porch swing and back yard to enjoy it. Joel was a great host. he gave us a lead on a terrific captain for a fishing charter, many suggestions on restaurants and even a nice place to rent a kayak and explore the mangrove coastline. I forgot my hairdryer and Joel was kind enough to bring one over for me to use during my stay. This bungalow is extremely well situated to get to the beaches, one block from the Pinellas Trail (we rented bikes and rode for a day), groceries, restaurants, St. Pete and Tampa. I would definately stay again. Thanks Joel!
We adored staying in this little bungalow. Roomy enough for 4 adults, super clean, stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. Communicating with Joel was incredibly fast and easy. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat - it was a great home base for us, a very relaxing place to come back to after sightseeing.
As many have stated before, Joel and Kelly are great hosts. The house was so clean and had everything we could have ever needed. Would absolutely go back!
We had a great time in Kelly and Joel's bungalow. Very cozy and all the moss covered trees gave an authentic feel. We can only recommend staying there and if you do, be sure to visit the two nearby state parks. Perfect communication!
Kelly & Joel recently decided to utilize their second home as a vacation rental in Clearwater, Florida. Their home is completely charming. There are two bedrooms and a large, unique bathroom. it's very comfortable and they are the consumate hosts. They care a great deal about their tenants comfort and overall experience. I would totally recommend their rental and plan on staying there again myself!
We've lived across the street from Joel & Kelly since 2005. They are great neighbors and close friends, and we consider them extended family. They're the kind of people you hope to meet when traveling, as they'll be sure to show you how welcoming they are. They've done a great job restoring this old bungalow, and having them live down the street from it ensures that everything is in working order.
