About Alina Giasi

We live in Tampa, visit our second home often and plan to move there when we retire. We have decorated and remodeled the condo to offer all the comforts of a home away from home. We gather here with family and friends often, and have built many cherished memories of our times together at 'our' beach, and hope you and your loved ones can do the same!

Alina Giasi purchased this condo in 2003

Why Alina Giasi chose Indian Shores

The Gulf beaches are just stunning, calm clear waters with an array of colors, wild life, colorful shells, and miles of peaceful white sand beaches; yet we are within walking distance of fine dining, unique shops, and many water sports and amenities, including day cruises such as Deep Water Fishing, Casino Cruises, Dolphin Watching and children's cruises, water sports, great entertainment and fresh local seafood restaurants. We enjoy our family getaways and hope to share our beautiful beaches and home with our guests. We live in Tampa, just about 45 minutes away from the condo, and bought this property as our second home. Our aim is to make our guests feel this is a second home to them as well. Many of our guests and repeat customers year after year.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful, Relaxing Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Alina was wonderful to rent from. She was always available when needed. The condo was beautiful and the condo complex was great for multiple families to enjoy together. This condo is on the back side which faces the Bird Sancturary, not beach front. However, it gives you privacy where the pool side units did not. I felt that the cleaning company could have dive a better job at cleaning the unit.

All in all, we did have a beautiful stay here. I would recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: I was a pleasure to be available for your arrival times and I am glad that you enjoyed the condo at all the amenities. There are really only a few condos that are completely beach front at our complex, since most of the units are side units, which is the case for ours. However, our unit is the second unit in from the beach, and we still have a nice view of the beach and ocean from the living room, master suite, kitchen, and especially the balcony, which is very peaceful, as you mentioned. Actually when we spoke, you commented that you were working from the balcony and enjoying the beautiful view. This peaceful and more private setting was one of the reason why we chose this side of the complex, as the master suite is also on that side, and away from the noise of the pool area. I, and the rest of our family, came in for our 4th of July celebrations right after your family left. I have gained a higher appreciation of the hard work our cleaning crew faces at times. There were 4 of us and we were washing linens and towels for hours. The shower poles and curtains were half off and the curtains, not the lining, had to be replaced from stains of red clothing that had been hanging from them. We were scrubbing the floors late into the night. Our next door neighbors who live in their condo year around, complained to us from towels hanging on the balcony railing and too many people in the unit. We open our home to families in hope that they can create beautiful memories and treat our home like their own. Many of our renters have been coming back every year for the past 13 years, they consider this "their home away from home", and we appreciate them for doing so.

Very clean, close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Very clean nice condo. Bathrooms need some up dating. Also would have liked to know that a bird sanctuary was right next door. When on balcony it was beside us. Not a fan of birds, kinda noisy at times. Pool area had no umbrellas and pool floor was in need of repair. Very secure building. Location was central to pretty much everything. Over all a very nice place.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us! Master bath is scheduled to be completely renovated this Fall, after the high Summer season. You are right. Pool deck has umbrellas at the tables by the grills, but no umbrellas in the area where the lounge chairs are located. I hope you were able to use the beach umbrella and beach chairs provided in the unit. We do appreciate your comments and your staying with us!

AWESOME EVERYTHING!!

  • 5 of 5

Just bring food and a bathing suit...this condo was more comfortable than home!

The wife and I took the kids for their first beach vacation and we were all spoiled by this condo, the amenities and its location. The kitchen was perfectly stocked, everything was clean (the wife gave 5 stars here), the bedrooms were cozy (ESPECIALLY the master bed), we borrowed the beach toys, we enjoyed the balcony with a beach view and when we weren't on the beach...we played in the pool. We had several guests hang out in the condo very comfortably and they had had no issues with parking. Our ONLY issue was having to go home!!

Alina...Thank you so much for offering your place for others to enjoy! Everything was truly awesome and we can't wait to come back.
