Bed. Breakfast. Beach.

The Laughing Lizard Bed & Breakfast

 Laughing Lizard Bed and Breakfast

Welcome

Visit frequently, sit long, talk much & laugh often.

Laughing Lizard Bed and BreakfastIt’s more than just great sunsets
and waves lapping at the shore.
It’s wonderful restaurants, museums, galleries,
shops and so much fun —
even the lizards are laughing.

Come in and stay for a night, a week or…

The Laughing Lizard Bed & Breakfast is a tin-roofed, three-story, Key Westy island home built in 2005. Located in the quaint island community of Indian Rocks Beach just south of Clearwater Beach in the Tampa Bay area on Florida’s west coast, this casual B & B is a contemporary throwback to the cottage-style architecture that speaks to Indian Rocks Beach’s roots.

Innkeeper Info

Meet Your Host

Meet Your Host Bill OckunzziInnkeeper Bill Ockunzzi, himself no novice to traveling, has literally visited EVERY STATE – spending two summers in Alaska – in addition to traveling Europe, Mexico, Canada, Central America, Asia and, most recently Italy.  Having negotiated the corporate world, the only thing Bill “negotiates” now is whitewater rapids.  His favorite trip is a week long wilderness rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho (the river of no return).

His recent adventures with Cindi include Barcelona, Spain and the French Riviera; Ireland; a month tour of the Scandinavian and Baltic countries (Cindi picked up her Volvo in Gothenburg, Sweden); 7 day bike/barge tour in Burgundy, France; Cairn, Sydney, Blue Mountains and Tasmania in Australia and New Zealand’s North and South Islands.  In 2013 they spent five weeks in China and Nepal and separate trips in California’s  wine country and North Carolina mountains.

In 2014 Bill and Cindi spent one month in Italy with stops in Venice, Florence, Rome, Sicily, Aeolian Islands (week long boat/bike tour), Calabria and Puglia.  The highlight was visiting Bill’s grandfathers boyhood home and meeting a cousin!

Cindi also has an extensive travel resume. She hitchhiked through Europe one summer while in college and has visited Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, Greece, the old Yugoslavia, and most of the rest of Europe, Nepal and China. Cindi managed a ski club in Tampa and led trips to almost every ski area in Colorado, Whistler in British Columbia, Jackson Hole, Wyoming and more. She finished her “working” career in the construction industry as an interior designer, most recently on a high rise building on Tampa’s Harbor Island.

Bill, you can call him “Mayor Bill,” served on the Indian Rocks Beach City Commission for six years, three as Mayor. He also was an officer and served on the corporate boards of two professional firms providing engineering, architecture, environmental and planning services. He was also Executive Director of a multi county government agency in Florida.

Bill and Cindi look forward to welcoming you to the Laughing Lizard Bed and Breakfast.
