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.

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.

Awesome stay during the week of June 23 thru 30 2018

  • 4 of 5

We experienced one of our better vacations at this condo. My wife and our two children really enjoyed the views from the balcony, relaxing on the beautiful beach here and the local seafood restaurants. The condo is supplied with everything you need to have a successful, fun filled vacation. The kitchen is very well equipped for any delicious meal you may want to whip up during your stay. Charcoal grills are also available by the tiki bar area in which we used several times. Ample beach gear is available such as chairs, 10 x 10 canopy, boogie boards, floats, sand toys, etc. Crab hunting at night and late evening shore fishing is a must. We highly recommend. Thank you Nelson Alves (owner) for all your efforts! Hope to visit next year!

Beautiful Unit at Holiday Villas III

  • 5 of 5

If you like white sugary sand beaches, beautiful water, awe inspiring sunsets, you will love staying at Holiday Villas III at Indian Shores. The unit is beautifully furnished in an open space arrangement that affords a nonstop gulf-front view that never gets old. The kitchen is completely set up and ready to go for quick meal prep or cookouts in the courtyard. Easy quick access to beach and amenities, including a lovely pool area. The location is superb and is close to many great restaurants and attractions, but secluded enough to enjoy the beach in relative privacy. We love coming here and plan to make it an annual tradition.

Felt very comfortable and at home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week. Condo felt like home. If I had any questions or concerns I sent a message to Nelson who owns the condo. He always got back to me within minutes and issue was resolved. My grandson caught three fish off of the private dock across the street with the fishing poles provided in unit. We also used the pool floats and noodles provided. Keyless entry was fantastic, didn’t have to worry about taking keys to beach. My daughter enjoyed early morning peace sitting on the balcony listening to the ocean. I would recommend this unit to family and friends.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We are not from Florida but our daughter needed surgery in Tampa. We needed a place to stay for the week following. Because our little granddaughter was along, we needed easy access to the beach and the pool. Being one level up meant short elevator waits or few stairs. I wanted the beach views from INSIDE because I'd be there most of the time: Views from the living & dining room, and kitchen. Got that too! We needed two baths, two bedrooms. Stepping into this immaculate, cool, beautiful home was such a thrill! Lovely! Leather sofas, big, well equipped kitchen, large dining area, huge sliding shuttered glass doors (shutters slide across if needed) leading to spacious balcony with a table and chairs overlooking the gulf. And a closet full of beach necessities:canopy, chairs, toys...! The kitchen has everything needed for cooking and cleaning up and a grill is downstairs in the patio area. Nelson even brought a new coffee maker over because the switch wasn't working on our's. I didn't have to ask. Each bedroom has great clothes storage and beautiful linens with extra blankets/throws to cuddle up in while enjoying the large tv. WE watched The Royal Wedding😊? Netflix provided anything we were in the mood for while munching popcorn or playing games from the cupboard. One bath has a tub/shower and one a lovely tiled shower with a seat. Both are spacious for after-swim cleanup.

Previous guests had taken towels so he replaced all of those with new ones as well without our asking.

We ate in most of the time but did go out for seafood at Lulus once. Missed our usual trip to Dave's but next time! Surgery and Post-surgery trips to Tampa were so convenient. Access to Safeway for groceries and Walgreens for meds was five minutes. Sadly, I got double pneumonia while there but there are several clinics within minutes as well.

In summary, if we had to be in Florida for surgery, this was the PERFECT place to be! Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Alvarez for sharing your beautiful home with us! Hopefully, others will enjoy as perfect a week as we did.

Note: Trash that kitchen trash can😉? An under-the-sink-freestanding would be oh so much better! 👏?

Indian Shores Beach Oasis

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay. The condo was up to date with all the amenities. And also it was in a very convenient location to access all of Pinellas, Hillsborough and Sarasota/Bradenton. People who stayed at the condo or lived there were very friendly. We had a BBQ out on the patio area Christmas Day and made some new friends that were doing likewise. Mark and Karen
