About Alina Giasi

We live in Tampa and visit our second home often and plan to move there when we retire. We have decorated and remodeled the condo to offer all the comforts of a home away from home. We gather here with family and friends often, and have built many cherished memories of our time together at 'our' beach, and hope you and your loved ones can do the same!

Alina Giasi purchased this condo in 2003

Why Alina Giasi chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

The Gulf beaches are just stunning, calm clear waters with an array of colors, wild life and shells with miles of peaceful white sand beaches, yet we are within walking distance of shops, day cruises, water sports, great entertainment and fresh local seafood restaurants. We enjoy our family getaways and hope to share our beautiful beaches and home with our guests. We live in Tampa, just about 45 minutes away from the condo, and bought this property as our second home. Our aim is to make our guests feel this is a second home to them as well, and many of our guests have been coming back for years.

What makes this condo unique

Only 30 minutes to Tampa and 1.5 hours to Disney World. Visit the new Dali Museum in St. Petersburg or the lively restaurants of Clearwater and John's Pass. Walk to Reding Pier and fish, collect shells, take a stroll for an ice cream, or walk to The Friendly Tavern, with its local tiki bar and karoke nights, and walk back home (only three blocks away). Experience local restaurants and fresh seafood, or sit back and relax to enjoy our spectacular sunsets!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this condo and the area. We LOVED IT!! The room was very spacious. The floors seemed a little dirty when we got there but not sure if that was just from all the sand that is easily brought in from outside or not. We did bring our own chairs and toys because we were hesitant to rely on the room being equipped with everything we needed but we could have left all of our chairs and toys at home.

We enjoyed the bird sanctuary until the last day and for some reason it smelled extra ripe that day.

The beach was not overcrowded and was great for morning or night fishing, which my kids and my husband enjoyed.

I thought the price was very reasonable for a weekly stay.

I am already planning my next trip back and was sad to have to leave so soon. I would recommend this condo to family and friends for sure!

Thank you for sharing your condo with us!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind response and for staying with us. I have asked our cleaning crew to pay special attention to the tile floors, but you are right about the sand...it is literally impossible sometimes to keep up with it. We just bought a beautiful new bedroom set for the master suite, are are always doing improvements to make our unit better for our guests. We look forward to your staying with us again!

Great condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 loved our stay at the condo over the holidays! There is nothing like being able to see the sunset from the patio each evening.

Alina was a great help throughout the entire rental process. She was very attentive, provided a wealth of information about the condo and was patient in answering the questions I had.

The condo was in a perfect location. Surrounding area has many condos and few traditional hotels which made it feel more like our home versus a hotel where we stayed on vacation. Plenty of nearby restaurants and grocery stores. Getting around the area was a breeze since the condo was near a causeway allowing quick access to the areas away from the beach.

The amount of space in the condo was probably our biggest surprise. More than enough room for our family without feeling like we had no personal space.

The condo was stocked with plenty of supplies, towels and beach toys. Very clean with new appliances.

Overall a wonderful experience and would welcome the opportunity to rent this condo on our next visit to the area!

Another great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home after two perfect weeks at the condo. There is so much to say about this unit but the special thing is that it is just like home. Alina makes it extra special with her help and kindness, all the amenities are right here, Indian Shores is close to many attractions we took in deep sea fishing, dolphin cruise at Johns Pass, Tampa Bay hockey game, restaurants and shopping are within walking distance This was our second time and we are looking forward to returning next year. I highly recommend that if you are looking for great place check out this property at the beach. Cindy

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your second stay and are planning on coming back next year. It looks like you did a lot of sightseeing, and the weather was just perfect for it! I hope you enjoyed the new appliances and new decorating touches. Thank you for taking such care of "our/your" beach place. We are spending Thanksgiving weekend there, and you left it spotless as usual! Renters like you are such a pleasure, and you are considered part of our beach family!

Another wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have made this place our yearly vacation retreat and we have yet to be disappointed. The owner really does a great job updating the condo, this year new appliances were installed and they were great...Wonderfully decorated, clean and spacious, what more can you ask for. Pool and beach area are only accessible with a key, so if you want a private retreat, secure location, this is the place for you. We are so looking forward to next year!

Wonderful Place for Families

  • 5 of 5

The Place is great and the owners are wonderful. We have stayed there a few times now, and we are always treated as family. Very clean, new appliances, everything we needed was there. The washer and drier inside the unit makes a big difference when trying to get laundry done after a day at the beach or the pool. Our kids love it and like visiting the bird sanctuary. We will be staying there again and Will DEFINETELY recommend to others. Alina is always just a phone call away to answer any questions we may have and to give us any recommendations about places to eat or go to in the area. Thanks for allowing our family feel at home and always being there for us.

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at this condo! From the new kitchen appliances to the spacious living area, it had everything we needed to make our stay a perfect one. The condo is just beautiful and is right on the beach - my family loved the ease of being on the beach and within walking distance to several restaurants. The kids loved the large pool area and mommy loved the convenience of the new washer & dryer inside the unit. The condo has everything you need from the moment you arrive - towels, beach chairs, toys for the kids. It's also modern and beautifully decorated. We LOVED our stay and can't wait to return next year! We would definitely recommend this as one of our favorite places to stay!
