My wife and I and 2 young girls spent 2 weeks at the Holiday Villas III in condo 609. We watched the dolphins swim in the inter-coastal from our balcony and saw a manatee swimming in the ocean. The condo was perfect for our family and Alex was outstanding to work with from day 1. The pool that is located on the oceanfront was priceless for our children and they were able to have the best of both world to enjoy the beach and then swim in the pool after spending time on the white sand. There are many wonderful restaurants and shops nearby and we took advantage of a dolphin cruise that totally entertained our family. We will be certain to contact Alex for next year's visit.

Beautiful beach & water with a few unknown inconveniences.

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I are on our way home from a week long stay at Holiday Villas III UNIT 609.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and the beach was beautiful! The unit in a whole was fairly good. The kitchen and bathroom upgrades were nice and we LOVED the sofas ( super comfy).

We were glad there were 2 queen size beds because one of the bed's linens had a hint of urine scent to them. The other bed / linens were much better. We enjoyed using the small roller cart to tote all of our beach stuff down everyday! A few things that we were not to thrilled with and did not know about until we arrived was that our (1) parking spot was across the street in an open parking lot. Having one parking spot was fine, but could be inconvenient for renters coming with more than 1 vehicle. The entire condo only has 1 spot per unit. The road we had to cross was Gulf Blvd, the main road (4 lanes) did not offer a cross walk, so we had to wait for a clear path to cross. We were not aware of the spot being across the street. The unit does face the road and waterway, so I did ask about the traffic/sound. The traffic was pretty constant and louder than what the owner described. If you are planning on bringing kids with you, be prepared to have to cross a busy road with them or having someone bring the car around to the condo carport each time. If we would have had small children with us it could have. been a pretty big inconvenience and concern. The condo is fairly large, with only 1 elevator. We caught the elevator fairly quickly a few times, but for the most part you are going to wait a little longer for the elevator to get to you or for it to be without a ton of people packed in it. Those were the only cons that we had & for the most part enjoyed our stay!

We enjoyed being able to get to Clearwater, Madeira beach, and St Pete Beach within 10 minutes from leaving the condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay but are sorry you had some issues. During your stay we contacted you by phone and email several times to ensure everything is fine and unfortunately you never indicated any issues. If you had mentioned any smells we could of had the cleaning lady come and change the linens. Regarding the parking, it is normal to have 1 spot per unit, if additional spots were needed then we could of made a request with the office downstairs. We try our best to accommodate our guests and ensure that the condo is clean and that they have a great vacation and we continually try to make improvements.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit in this condo. Alex was great and easy to communicate with. We received a call from his wife to make sure the condo was to our satisfaction and that we had everything we needed. The kitchen and family room was updated beautifully. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in away from home. It was great seeing the dolphin from the balcony. I did have to go buy some plastic containers to store food in and a plastic two quart pitcher. We would recommend this condo for your stay in Indian Shores.

Awesome Stay @ Alex' s Condo

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. We really enjoyed the tropical comforts of home. Beautiful view from the balcony of the intercostal loaded with all kinds of boats and dolphins. The condo was very clean and has an updated kitchen. It also has a new, comfortable couch & loveseat. This place is very private being on the corner of the building. The amenities such as the pool and super helpful staff are a huge plus. Don't forget that you are right on the beautiful beach. I highly recommend this place to any one that loves to swim and likes beautiful sand & water.

Great location/ reasonable price

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at condo #609. Easy to find and within walking distance to several good restaurants. The Sun Coast trolley stops outside the building. #609 is on the Gulf Blvd side with a view of the intercoastal waterway complete with drawbridge.

The condo itself was very comfortable with recent upgrades - including nice kitchen cabinets/ granite countertops, new utensils, plates and a new bathroom vanity. The living room has a nice new sofa, love seat and 2 chairs. Balcony is a decent size with 2 comfy chairs and a small table. The bedroom has 2 beds, the queen was very comfortable with nice sheets and pillows. On the down side the lighting in the bedroom was very dim and the dresser was quite old and drawers did not function properly. ( minor issues)

The owners were very engaging and easy to deal with. They even called during our stay to ask how we were making out and to see if we had any issues. They are going to continue to improve their condo based on suggestions from renters. One suggestion would be to paint the baseboards and clean the bathroom grout . Everything else was very clean. The building is older and only has 1 elevator so it can be VERY slow. Not the owners fault. Parking is across the street which is a bit dangerous but also not the owners fault. Also lots of traffic on Gulf Blvd, but it was Easter week so I would expect more. If you have the air conditioner on at night you don't really hear it.

The office staff was very friendly and helpful with answers to questions and suggestions. The beach is beautiful and a lot less crowded than St Pete. The pool area looked nice with lots of lounge chairs. There is a BBQ area but we didn't use it.

All and all I would recommend this condo if you want to be on the beach but not pay beach front prices. Good value for the money. Thank you!
