About David Miller

Vacation time is hard to come by and there is nothing is worse than walking into your hotel and being disappointed with where you are staying. When I found my condo, I fell in love with the views and worked hard to make it a relaxing oasis, that myself and others won't want to leave.

David Miller purchased this condo in 2013

Why David Miller chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

From the minute you walk in the front door, you can see straight to the Gulf. Stepping out on the balcony and watching the waves go by, whether it's coffee in the morning or a favorite beverage at night, this view does not disappoint. What makes my property unique are the large ceilings and views from every room, even the master bath while you are soaking in the jetted tub. Virtually, everywere you hear the waves and can enjoy breath taking views.

What makes this condo unique

The tall ceilings and open floor plan make it very different than your average Florida condo. The large balcony overlooks the recently updated pool and hot tub area and the beach is only steps away. Grab your towel and you can be in the water in 1 minute, no crossing the street, no long wait for the elevator, just a quick jog down 2 flights of stairs and you have arrived!

Gorgeous Condo

  • 5 of 5

When we walked through the door we looked at each other and said WOW,

It is an immaculate condo, it has everything you could need and more and then you walk out onto the balcony and the view of the beach takes your breathe away especially at sunset,

The bed was so comfortable that it was hard to leave it on a morning, there is loads of towels and spare bedding and the storage unit is packed with things for the beach,

The complex is fantastic, the pool and spa area is excellent and just a few steps to the beach, we have stayed on IRB FOR 12 years now and this by far the best place we have stopped at, it is in a great position for everything, restaurants, pub shopping in Tampa or at the outlets, it is just a perfect place,

Fantastic Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We saw this property on the VRBO web site and it looked great, when we walked through the front door it was everything that was promised and more. This is a beautifully appointed apartment in many ways. Very spacious and clean, lots of kitchen utensils , pots and pans if you like to cook , several restaurants within walking distance, plenty of linens and beach towels , beach chairs etc.. The owners are very accommodating and easy to deal with. We loved it so much we are planning to return next year, and hopefully into the future! Thanks to Marisa and Dave and your wonderful condo, our Indian Rocks Beach vacation was outstanding.

A Perfect Month

  • 5 of 5

THANK YOU DAVE AND MARISSA!!!!

I had planned for 2 years to travel to the coast in November 2014. After reviewing several properties online I chose yours and was so delighted after I arrived!

Property was exactly as pictured, however, was so much more than a camera could capture!

Beautifully decorated and stocked with everything a person would need for a month away from home. Relaxing color schemes in each room. Extremely clean, modern, and well maintained. Fully stocked kitchen. And what surprised me the most was how large the condo was!

Owners were available by phone, if needed, and checked in by email during my stay to inquire about my stay.

I would absolutely love to return to The Gables someday...........Again, many thanks to Dave and Marissa for a beautiful condo!

Beautiful Condo...But Holiday From Hell

  • 1 of 5

Firstly we would like to say this is a Beautiful condo and everything we had hoped for, when we first contacted the owners they where helpful and even gave a discount on our request.

On arriving for our month stay everything seemed to be perfect, until we realised the Air conditioning was not working, we contacted the owners to be told they could not understand what had gone wrong, but they would get someone out but it would cost them a call out charge of a 100 dollars, this seemed a little strange that they needed to tell me this.

However Dave the owner did get someone out who sorted the problem, we where then told that the maintenance man from the Condo association would be coming to check the Ac out also and we would need to be there, which we did this was now into the 3rd day of our stay and on the same day this is when the real problems started.

The condo directly 2 below us was having new doors etc installed and the noise was terrible, the maintenance man told us it would last for 1 day, well that 1 day nearly continued throughout our whole holiday there was major drilling starting every morning at 8 am this would vibrate right up to the penthouse, the owners where contacted time and time again and i had to resend emails to them which all they seemed to do was blame the condo assocaition, they did not want to take responsibility and even reminded us that we got a discount, so it seems we should have to put up with our vacation being ruined due to us getting that diacount . There was Workmen digging up around the pool, drainage work being done, we could not get our car out one day or back in, we would have to give the workmen 1 hours notice to get our car out and even then they looked at us as if we where the inconvenience.

the security gates where left open for a fortnight and the jacuzzi was also out of use for a fortnight..... then the condo directly below us was having more work, concreting and waterproofing and the owner of this condo who is also the secretary of the condo association advised us that the work would be going on for a couple of days and we should make ourselves scarce due to the noise.

This i thought was a disgrace to be told when you come on vacation, to make yourself scarce due to work being done is totally unacceptable, and more so when the work carried on for over a week and also at this time the Geothermal was being installed for the pool ....yes the condo is lovely, but the owners allowed our vacation to be ruined

Owner's Response: I have apologized repeatedly to my guests for the neighbor's construction, of which I had no future knowledge. I immediately called the President of the Association after her initial complaint and various times throughout, absolutely no other tenants complained. Unfortunately, I can't control the weather nor anything outside the walls of my condo. The air conditioner was fixed immediately and was an issue with the line in the condo, not my unit.My place is beautiful and fully stocked for a guest's pleasure. This guest broke my screen door, clogged the drain which required a plumber, asked to use my personal wine/alcohol stock and sent personally aggressive emails throughout her visit. She also tried to cancel her visit in July with a full refund due to a "sickness" and earlier requested being allowed to make her payments later than the actual due date as she didn't have the necessary funds. In the two years I have owned my property and made it available for others to enjoy, this was my first disaster tenant. The reputation of my condo and building is represented in my other reviews. For other property owners, I would avoid this tenant at all costs.
