About Stannard Allen

Stan is a major sports fan -- who lives in Sarasota. The photo was taken in Chicago with Stan just coming back from a baseball game.

Stannard Allen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Stannard Allen chose Tampa

He bought this property because it it easy to get to; the surrounding area has some great restaurants (and bars); and it is near baseball, football, and ice hockey stadiums.

What makes this condo unique

It's in a condo building but the neighbors are quiet, the area is secure, parking is gated, and the view from the living room and bedroom is palm trees, sky and Florida sunshine.

Nice building location and biking area

  • 2 of 5

The building and location was great but unfortuantly not a well maintained unit. . We brought our bikes because it is a great biking area, but the landlord would not provide keys for us to access the bike storage area or the front door of the building, so we always had to enter and exit the building through the garage. The unit was not ready the day we were scheduled to arrive, was not clean, so we had to find a hotel room the first night, and was not reimbursed for the missed night or hotel room as we were promised. The dead bolt on the front door to the unit was broken, the sliding glass door could not be locked, and the fire alarm was disabled. All a safety concern for us, but the landlord refused to fix these issues during our 30 day stay. We were provided with only one set of keys, the TV in the bedroom did not work, and needed to clean the unit ourselves. A good place to stay if only for one or two nights, I would not recommend it for longer stays.

Owner's Response: Obviously, I apologize for any inconvenience that our guests experience. If only a simple apology would have made these renters happy I would have done so. Many of their requests/demands and subsequent complaints were not within my ability to grant or change. The “bike storage area” is full, and not accessible to any tenant without an annual permit. Guests can easily secure their bikes in the allocated space where they park their car. This is a very secure area behind a locked garage door. I am sorry that this was not an acceptable solution. The renters complain I would not provide them with a (building) front door key and they “always had to enter and exit the building through the garage.” The 12th Street door is accessed by dialing a call button to each unit owner. In my case this would mean guests would call my cell phone to reenter the building. I would remotely buzz them in. This is not a penalty I inflict, but rather part of the security of the building. Everyone, myself included, reenters the building through the garage elevator glass lobby entrance without inconvenience or complaints. It is just easier than waiting to be buzzed in. The complaint regarding the fire alarm and safety: there are two fire alarm/smoke detectors in the unit. The smoke detector closest to the entry needed a new battery and was “chirping.” It was turned off. The other smoke detector located near the kitchen was working. The maintenance staff was told one smoke detector needed a new battery. Unfortunately, it was true the unit wasn’t serviced the first day -- an oversight by the cleaning service (Christmas week). The renters were offered the option of waiting three hours and going to dinner, or spending the night at a hotel. It was their choice was to go to a hotel. I said I would reimburse this after check-out. “The Place” is my second home and I keep personal sports memorabilia in it for my guests to enjoy. Previous guests have treated the unit as if it were their second homes. When these renters left it required an industrial cleaning service, two persons and six hours to clean. “Sticky notes” referencing their clients or to-do work orders were tacked to the dining room wall, piles of work papers were left shredded, and garbage was left in the apartment. Spaghetti/red sauce had exploded in the microwave and crusted on the stove and kitchen walls. Space does not permit further details. Happily, however, the entry and patio window-wall door locks are not broken.

Just as described---comfortable, safe, and clean!

  • 5 of 5

The property is quiet, spacious, and in a convenient location. I felt very safe. It is located in a VERY dog friendly complex with a modern dog park across the street which was great as we travel with a service dog. This property was chosen for being pet friendly and the location due to an extended hospital stay at Tampa General (10 minute drive). Owner made check in very easy. Pictures and description are as shown. Condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay.The kitchen was well equipped with top of the line cookware and utensils as well as stocked with many of the basics like salt, pepper, coffee filters, dish washing soap, etc . Will definitely consider staying here again.

beaitiful downtown condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beautiful condo at least 4 times. Downtown on Channelside. We love sitting on patio watching cruise ships pull into port. Perfect for two people. Quiet and relaxing. Upscaled amenities. We feel right at home when we come here.
