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.

Totally AWESOME!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Wonderful Gulf front Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo directly on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The listing is exactly as described and is very clean. Joyce was fantastic to deal with, she provided everything necessary (codes and parking pass, beach chairs etc.) so arriving was a breeze. She was very helpful when one person in our group left behind some personal belongings. All in all, I don't think you will be disappointed in this condo. Thank you Joyce!

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you need and more. We had family in 2other condos and they didn't have half of what our condo provided. Beach toys, blender, tons of cooking and cleaning supplies. The view was gorgeous. We were there in mid August which was super hot, so we utilized the pool a lot and the beach/ocean were amazing. Would definitely come back.
