The location is nice and close to the beaches and a bunch of great restaurants. I had a wonderful stay here, wish I could've stayed longer! It was the perfect place for a getaway. I would definitely recommend!! November 2013 David We really enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House!! It felt like a home away from home. It was so much more private, peaceful and comfy than coming back to a hotel every night. It was so close to the downtown Clearwater area and the biking/running trails. We could literally walk to so many places. The accommodations were so pleasant and unique, designed to be peaceful and relaxing. I loved that I had a laundry room with beach supplies at my disposal. Bruce was very helpful as we had a few maintenance issues that were quickly and easily resolved. September 2013 Johanna A great place to stay if you want a Clearwater vacation but don't want to pay hotel prices! The carriage house is a very sweet little studio apartment, perfect for a single person or couple, tucked away behind the main house. It's not the most modern, spick-and-span place, but it is charmingly decorated and was perfect for our laid-back beach vacation. We stayed for two weeks and felt very much at home there. The location is great, right by a big supermarket, very close to downtown Clearwater and only ten minutes' drive from the beach - but note that you do need a car to get around. Bruce lent us beach towels, chairs and umbrellas, which we were really grateful for, and he lives on the same street so if we needed anything, he was very nearby. Great hosts and a lovely place to stay! June 2013 Jason The carriage house is fantastic. It has everything you need, in a safe and quiet neighborhood, and close to the bike trail, beaches, and shops. Bruce & Melody are kind and accomodating, and have made our stay all the more enjoyable. January 2013 Lee Thank you Bruce for letting stay at your place during our visit to Florida. Bruce was very helpful in letting us know where the best places to visit and how to get the most out of our stay. We will certainly stay there again if we are back in that area, as the accommodation was of a high standard. Thanks Bruce Lee & Padmani January 2013 James I stayed in the Carriage House for a month and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is in a very convenient downtown Clearwater location, yet has a quiet residential environment. It was a luxury having a Publix super market just a few blocks away and numerous restaurants within walking distance. Bruce and Melody went to considerable lengths to make me feel at home and insure that I was well-acquainted with the best beaches, good restaurants and local attractions. The Carriage House itself was pleasant and quiet with a comfortable bed. Initially there were occasional problems with the wireless internet connection, but Bruce fixed these by installing a timer to reboot the router automatically early every morning. More
