About nelson alves

Nelson and Tori Alves live in Philadelphia, PA but fell in love with the gulf coast of Florida during a visit. They knew they wanted to buy a home so they could visit often, but while they are still working full time up north, they wanted to rent and share their home with others looking to experience the beauty of the Florida Gulf Coast.

nelson alves purchased this condo in 2015

Why nelson alves chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

This property has everything you could want. Luxury at an affordable price. All of the comforts of home located on the white sands of Indian shores. Breathtaking direct gulf views from the unit and especially the balcony. Unit is immaculate, updated and upgraded, one of the best in the complex. Beach canopy and chairs provided. Free WiFi and laptop for your use in the unit.

What makes this condo unique

You are on the beach, Great views, and in the heart of Indian shores. A short drive to John's Pass or downtown. yet at the beach all of that melts away so you can sit back in luxury and relax and enjoy the beach, and warm waters of the gulf. The complex has boat slips across the street that can be rented. A fishing dock is also located across the street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had an amazing time while in Florida and we are dreading leaving in the morning. The condo is absolutely gorgeous! It was more than what I imagined. It was close to everything we wanted to do and had a beautiful view of the beach. I would highly recommend to any of my friends and family. And if we decide to come back to Indian Shores, I will definitely be contacting you.

Amazing vacation everything I dreamed and more

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was provided. The property is just as advertised and more. Beautiful condo in paradise. The owner makes this property a home away from home and more. Family friendly and is directly on the beach. A short drive to some of Florida's best attractions. Can't wait to go back next year.

Pristine beaches, amazing sunsets, and super clean

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a fun and relaxing getaway to enjoy sun, water, good food, and local attractions. This condo is perfectly situated on a pristine beach with large variety of shore birds and beautiful sunsets. The condo is clean, nicely updated and comfortable, and the pool area is spacious and very clean. The deck offers a spectacular view close to the water. Located between St. Pete Beach and Clearwater with lots of local attractions in close proximity. We rebooked for next year!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Loved the pictures of you guys enjoying your stay. Sounds like the weather was perfect. Sorry for bugging you with the questions about how you liked your stay but the previous guests were a pain and i wanted to make sure the issue was the guests. It was great getting the emails from you about your stay after so much trouble with the last guests. Your week is reserved for next year.

Dirty condo and unprofessional owner

  • 1 of 5

This property was a disappointment, sadly. A few days before we were to arrive, I received an email from the owner stating that there were international credit card fees (I'm in Canada) and that he would not be covering them so we would have to pay him for the fees. This was not stated in our rental agreement or on the listing for the condo, so I feel it was unfair to ask us to pay them. They are the cost of doing business. If the owner doesn't want to pay the fees, he shouldn't accept credit cards. Sadly, he kind of had me between a rock and a hard place because it was spring break and I wouldn't be able to find another suitable rental in time, so I reluctantly paid the fees. The day we arrived for our two-week stay, I wrote to the owner and told him that the condo was dirty. There was a dried piece of banana stuck to the kitchen cabinet, the kitchen floors were dirty, the water dispenser on the fridge had mould in it, and one of the doors of the fridge was rusty. The kitchen is not "new" as described in the listing. The cabinets have a stickiness to them and the finish on the faucet is peeling off. Also, when we arrived, the desk and part of the kitchen countertop were cluttered, not like is shown in the pictures on the listing. The furniture in the second bedroom (with two beds) needs a good scrubbing. Also, the view, as you can kind of see in the pictures, is obstructed by the roof of the structure below. The owner did offer to send the cleaners back out the following day, but I had already begun cleaning the kitchen because I didn't want to prepare breakfast the next day before doing some scrubbing. A lot of this I could have overlooked, but the final straw was the fact that it is now 6 weeks since we left the condo (much cleaner than we found it) and I just got my refund for the security deposit. Florida state law requires that it be returned within 15 days of a renter vacating the property. The owner made various excuses for the delay in the return of my deposit. What is laughable is that he has offered me a discount should I book with him again. This will never happen. I have rental numerous condos in this area over the course of many years and thankfully, this has been a one-time experience. Most condos have been very clean and I have never been asked to cover credit card fees and I have always gotten my security deposit back in good timing.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. The guests arrived early before the assigned check in so the cleaners could not finish cleaning. I offered to have them return the same day or on Sunday and finish the cleaning but they chose not to have that done. In the listing it clearly states the international fees are covered by the guest so it should not have been a surprise. I also informed them when they booked the stay that the option to send a check in US funds would be a good method not to incur the fees. This guest is the first person to have a problem with their stay. By paying through the website on a credit card the funds are reversed to the owner after the stay. For some reason this did not work. In looking at the problem it may have been a debit card that would not allow the funds to repost. Once I was informed of the problem I sent the return funds via an electronic check that was not cashed. I canceled the check and sent another check register mail to ensure that the guest didn't lose another check. The cost of returning the funds was in excess of $60 and may have been a game the guest was playing. In reference to cleanliness of the unit, i checked with the next 2 guests to see if their was an issue and they both said it was perfect one guest informed me you could eat off the floors. It is disappointing to have a guest not enjoy their stay, I offered her a significant discount on a return trip. Not much more I can do.
