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 Florida Central Gulf Coast

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.

Lovely, condo! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well-appointed condo right on the beach in Indian Shores. Beach chairs and umbrella were provided. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach which was not crowded-almost like having your own private beach! I would definitely recommend this condo.

I wish someone had warned me about the noise

  • 2 of 5

This is a wonderful location right on the beach and the view is to die for. But, no one told me when I rented the unit that there were a lot of noisy renovations going on and probably will continue for a long time. The jack hammering was very annoying, especially if you wanted to use the pool. This is an old complex and the price reflects that. The unit while neat and clean was in desperate need of new furniture (especially the recliner that had been painted where it was cracked). The kitchen drawers were broken, fans did not work and I blew a fuse twice using a basic hairdryer. The bed linens were very tired too...pilled and uncomfortable to sleep on. Until the renovations are completed or at least the owner/agent tells the renter about them, I would not recommend this rental.

I'm sure there must be much newer, updated condos in the rental program but unfortunately, I didn't find one of those. Even with my disappointment in the unit and the work going on, the area is beautiful with lots of good restaurants and interesting things to do. Also, the condo manager was very helpful and the staff around the complex was very pleasant and courteous.

Owner's Response: I appreciate renters taking the time to provide feedback. However, this renter did not stay in my unit as I had repeat guests in May from Rhode Island who book my place each year. I do not have a painted recliner, and my living room sofa and loveseat were purchased BRAND NEW in May 2015. While I do believe they did stay in a condo at Holiday Villas II, all of the units are different; some are nicer than others. I take much pride in ownership and keep my place nice. It shows with the number of repeat guests I have time and time again.

Totally AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

Everything Plus a lot more than expected. Booked over Thanksgiving week and what rental provides all kinds of spices including poultry seasoning! Thank you Mrs. Lobo for an awesome stay. Your condo is clean, updated, comfortable and in a great location to everything. The price was a bargain as well!

Owner's Response: Hi Logan, Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review. I warn people if they stay here just once, they will want to return, and you are proof. Thanks for booking your second stay in 2016; I will be happy to have you again as a returning guest.

Most Relaxing Trip I have EVER had in my Life

  • 5 of 5

What a LOVELY and CLEAN condo !! Just like Forest Gump, you never know what you will get, but Joyce had told me this is the only condo she owns and she gives it a lot of attention to detail. WOW ! This place had EVERYTHING you could want. Beds were comfortable, never seen a kitchen so well stocked, so many little extras like a pair of binoculars, a cooler to take drinks down to the beach, and even grapefruit spoons. She was wonderful to work with as she explained everything and arrival was a breeze.

VACATION WONDERLAND

  • 5 of 5

You can't ask for more in a vacation. The weather was GREAT. The condo was excellent (Joyce was great to work with). The condo had everything you needed including beach chairs, beach toys for the kids, and beautiful décor. The kitchen has more items in it than my own home!! I recommend this condo to anyone. We plan to come back as soon as we can.

Just LOVED It

  • 5 of 5

We could have not been more pleased with these accommodations. The kitchen was stocked with everything--baking pans, spices, skillets, lots of dishes, etc. And the view was amazing. The view was unobstructed for a 180 degree view of the beach and you could look out and see for miles. We'll be back next year!
