“Perfect spot for our family of four!”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2016

We just returned home from our wonderful vacation at the Algera's condo! What a beautiful location, so many good things to say that it won't all fit. The condo is comfortable equipped with the Egyptian Cotton linens and wonderful amenities. The walk to the beach was easy, our 3 year old made it walking each day. The beach itself was magical, clean and surrounded by open spaces with room to look for shells if you enjoy that like we do! Being located right off the Gulf Blvd the access in and out for restaraunts and shopping was easy as pie! The deck of the condo was wonderful on the waterway where you could watch the boats come in or hear the fish playing. At night we frequented the pool which was quiet and gorgeous with sunsets. Melinda and Chuck have thought of everything! From the beach caddy to the oversized chairs (perfect for my tall husband) we never wanted for anything. The details of this place are better than described! Melinda was always prompt and was so kind to answer my 20 questions during our initial conversations. My family drove up and down the coast but we definitely felt a comfortable, homey, quiet vibe here that was priceless. Let's just say my husband is already planning our return!

“This Condo is exactly as described”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2016

I should say "ditto" to most of the other reviews. We've just returned from a week at this condo. Had a relaxing vacation, took in a MLB game, and enjoyed family time. Condo is very clean and comfortable with many amenities. Michelle has thought of everything to make this a home away from home. Having the garage available to keep the car in, makes getting in it in the evenings much more bearable during the summer heat. This condo is close to everything you could possibly want in a Florida vacation spot. Would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again. I can tell by the guest book in the condo many guests are "repeat offenders", as well they should be!

Owner's reply: Brenda, I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed the condo! For great weather, but not quite as hot, you would love the Fall! We look forward to your return! Michele

“Comfortable Elegance”

Reviewed 12 May 2016

My friend and I stayed in Michelle's condo for a week in December. The condo is furnished beautifully with great attention to detail but still has the relaxed welcome beach feel. The rooms are very spacious and the rooms are immaculate. The view of the intracoastal waterway from the living area and the porch is serene. The garage has a full complement of beach chairs, umbrella, wagon for transport to the beach, and even bikes. The kitchen had salt and pepper and other things that you always need and never think to bring. Michelle is very accessible and makes certain that your stay is problem free. The condo is conveniently located with restaurants and shopping close by. Salt Rock Grill is an excellent choice and if you go early, they have a reduced price menu. Close to downtown St Pete with museums (my favorites the Dali and the Chihuly), major league baseball and lots of fun restaurants. This the perfect get away! I will definitely go back and have recommended this condo to many of my friends. The only downside is that a week goes so quickly!

“This condo is paradise!”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2011

My husband, daughter (now 9) and I have vacationed in Michele's condo for two years, and have recently booked our third. We LOVE it!!! The condo and the property is immaculate and its amenities are fantastic. Every thing you could need is provided. Michele even provides a pasta dinner upon arrival and calls to be sure you've found everything satisfactory. We spend our early mornings doing yoga and eating a light breakfast on the dock. We then go for a walk through Indian Shores or into Indian Rocks. Come home, pack up for the beach and walk, literally, 7 minutes to the pristine beach where we spend the day. We have seen large groups of sting rays, and were swimming with a pod of manatees last Easter. We have watched dolphins on the Intercoastal and spent an hour one evening watching fish jump out of the water right off the dock. I can not say enough about Indian Shores, the surrounding communities and most of all this condominium. The Pub is always fun with decent (not great) food. We travel to John's Pass each year where there is definitely something for everyone. Last year we traveled to Tropicana Field bringing our daughter to her first MLB game. We are Red Sox fans but had a blast. We travel to Adventure Island each year which is a great water park and alternate each year between Busch Gardens and the Lowry Park Zoo which are both very fun spots. It has truly been paradise for us and we can't wait to return for our two weeks in April. I would highly recommend this property to anyone without hesitation. In fact, our friends and family are quite honestly tired of hearing about our raving but we think they're just jealous :)

“Spring Get-a-Way”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2011

My husband & I stayed for 10 days at this condo and loved every minute of it. We saw dolphins on the deck of the coastal waters, the beach was just across the street. They supplied a wagon to haul your beach items and they had anything you would need at the beach for your use. The condo was spacious, well furnished and so clean. They left us a welcome basket; which was a nice touch. Michelle even called when we arrived to make sure everything was OK. That you don't see in this day and age. We would definately come back to this condo. The location was convient to most attractions, dining & shopping. Don't hesitate to book this condo; it is as it appears in the pictures...enjoy your vacation!

“Location location location!”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2011

My husband, 2 young boys and I stayed at this wonderful rental for a solid week and LOVED it. The condo is roomy and had everything you could need. Laundry in the unit was a huge plus. Literally a 2 minute walk to the sand and the beach was practically empty! The wagon and all the beach gear in the garage was very handy. We beached it all morning and walked back in the evenings to watch the sunsets (all of which were superb!) My DH caught a few fish of the pier out back and EVERY day we saw dolphins, manatee, and/or rays and birds of every feather at the beach or the ICW. We will definitely be back for another week soon. Michelle and Wayne were very nice and helpful. THANKS!

“Perfect for anyone!”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2011

We loved this spacious, beautifully decorated condo. It came equipped with everything you need both in the kitchen and private garage[beach chairs, sun umbrella, wagon for beach supplies, bar-b-que...loved that!]: it also had many basic supplies on hand[cleaning, bath tissue, kleenex etc.] so no need to purchase those. Master bedroom has a huge bed with a very comfortable mattress and second bedroom can be made up as a queen or two singles...great for a family! The balcony overlooks the inland waterway, a very peaceful view. Fellow renters were very friendly and easy to meet either at the pool area or outside the garages where they often sat to socialize and catch the afternoon sun. Pool area is very clean and attractive though water was a little cool in February. Nice chairs and loungers and very private due to surrounding shrubs, hedges. The owners were very responsive to deal with and made themselves available at all times if needed[it wasn't]. We would recommend this condo to anyone and would love to return there ourselves in future!

“Romantic Getaway!”

My husband and I had a nice getaway. We spent some time on the beach and rented some scooters. Comfortable and like being at home away from home.

“Best rental we have had in the Clearwater Area”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2010

If you are in the Tampa Bay area for any reason you cannot go wrong renting this place. The location, on the intercoastal waterway, across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, is nearly perfect. The condo is very large as condo's go. The master bedroom is huge with a nice king size bed and plenty of room around it. The living room is spacious and comfortable. This unit had everything we needed as far as supplies, utensils, cookware, etc... There was even spaghetti and sauce left for a first meal so we didn't have to go to the store the first night. The owner, Michele, is an absolute delight to work with. She was a fantastic host, who responded to e-mails in a timely manner and called to check on us on the day of our arrival. We will definitely rent this unit again.

“Best Vacation Home Ever!!”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2009

We just loved our vacation at this awesome Condo! It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken! The condo was fully loaded with everything you could possibly need so you felt right at home. It's right across the road from the beach -- you just load up their little buggy with everything you need and pull it on over to your beachy spot. The beach is beautiful too...White sands, the ocean was warm and the people super friendly! It wasn't packed like a touristy place...it all seemed homey. In the evening we would head back to the condo...put our beach stuff back in the garage and get settled back in for the night. I did a little laundry each day and we had plenty of clean towels, linens, clothing all week long! The smooth top stove worked great and with all the pans, etc...you could make anything your heart desires! On the dock we saw Dolphin and the beach had Manta Ray! We saw it all! Thank you for the BEST Vacation Ever!! We plan on coming back to visit again as soon as we can!
