About Joyce Lobo

I've been visiting the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area for 20 years and have stayed all over. Once I stayed at Holiday Villas II in 2002, I never stayed anywhere else. In 2006 I decided since I keep coming back there time and time again, I should just purchase my own condo.

Joyce Lobo purchased this condo in 2006

Why Joyce Lobo chose Indian Shores

Holiday Villas II is a lovely, affordable facility that appeals to people of all ages.

What makes this condo unique

Our building has one of the largest pools of other condo complexes in the area. We have tables with umbrellas and more than 50 chairs and loungers around the pool. The pool is heated to 86 degrees for year round comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo has become our home away from home & we have enjoyed it for years! It is bright, well kept, clean, nicely decorated, and the view of the beach doesn't get any better! We enjoy the amenities this condo offers along with the property. It is very quiet, safe, clean, and it is located close enough to the major attractions. We enjoy exploring locally & visiting the neighborhood restaurants & shops.

Beautiful condo in a gorgeous location!

  • 5 of 5

Actually stayed in Joyce’s sisters place one floor up and couldn’t have been happier. Beautiful spot right on the beach. The condo was lovely and had everything you needed for a short or long stay. Only recommendation would be to update beach chairs ... otherwise wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

Owner's Response: It is very hard to keep the chairs like new. The salt air does damage to the chairs very fast. Plus the other guests put the chairs in the salt water and do not rinse them off. I only go down to visit my home every 5 months and replace the damage chairs. Thanks for feedback.

wonderful three week vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the condo,it is very spacious,and Joyce has it equipped with all the cooking utensils,pot, pans,and all the bedrooms and bathrooms had everything you will need to..We liked it so much that we extended our stay there from two weeks to three weeks.It is also clean and well kept.,and most of all it was right on the beach,we had a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset every evening,but my favorite thing was the sunshine,we live in Southern Ohio and the sun does not shine much in the winter here,but Florida has plenty of it.
