The Laughing Lizard B & B is a tin-roofed, three-story, Key Westy island home built in 2005. Fifty-six windows offer a view of beachlife as it happens in what USA Today termed as “the best beach town of all”—Indian Rocks Beach. The style here is casual and laid back with creatively colorful eclectic guestrooms—each with private bath. Enjoy breakfast in Lizard Hall; stroll 400’ to the beach for a morning walk; and ride the local beach trolley to wonderful restaurants, parks, etc. At day’s end, sip afternoon wine and experience the sunset…maybe even the famous "green flash."

What a fabulous B&B. I have stayed at B&B's in the US and Europe. I have never enjoyed a B&B more! Everything exceeded expectations!

The Laughing Lizard was the perfect place for the rest and relaxation we needed. We had the perfect room, The Shy Salamander, which had an extremely comfortable king size bed. The linens were luxurious and the room and bathroom were spacious. We loved the scrumptious breakfasts and afternoon wine tasting. Very clean and welcoming with a unique decor, we are looking forward to another visit in the not too distant future. Oh, and the beach was delightful!

My wife and I spent a great weekend at the Laughing Lizard B & B. The room was clean and well appointed, the property was also clean and wonderfully decorated. Enough cannot be said about the breakfasts we had, they were incredible. Thanks Bill and Cindi for a perfect weekend!

The Shy Salamander is a lovely, spacious room with wonderful local historic and eclectic interior decorations. Cindi and Bill were gracious innkeepers with great knowledge of and suggestions for touring the area. The delicious breakfasts and afternoon wine tasting with appetizers provided the perfect settings for conversations with new and interesting folks. Donna & Gale (March 2013)

Innkeeper Bill Ockunzzi, an "escapee" from the corporate world, has literally visited every U.S. state and traveled abroad. You could call him "Mayor Bill" because he is a former mayor/commissioner of Indian Rocks Beach. Bill looks forward to guests returning again and again to sit long, talk much and laugh often.
