About

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."

Fantastic Place to Stay

5 on March 23, 2014

The Laughing Lizard is a most memorable and charming Bed and Breakfast! Located in the small town of Indian Rocks Beach, our room was beautifully decorated with a somewhat whimsical feel. Wine tasting and meeting new friends was delightful. Fabulous healthy breakfast and a great location with a variety of restaurants within walking distance or a short ride! The beach is across the road and all amenities are provided. Bill and Cindi are very gracious hosts with a wealth of knowledge of the area.


First Timers at a B & B

Spent three wonderful nights at this delightful B&B! Our first experience staying at a B&B. We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival Wednesday evening with wine and snacks. Bill and Cindi were a wealth of knowledge as we planned our days along the Florida coast. Our room was quiet, very comfortable, very clean. And the breakfasts-Oh My! We enjoyed lingering after our delicious meal for great conversation with our hosts and the other guests. What a great way to start the morning!


Hidden Gem!

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!


Great R & R

5 on August 25, 2013

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!
