About Michael and Carolyn Linnemann

Mike and I live on a beautiful 6 acre property between Bloomington, IL and Peoria, IL approximately 2 hours south of Chicago, IL. We have 8 children and 5 grandchildren who enjoy vacationing with us at our condo. Spending affordable vacations with our family was our motivation to purchase our condo. Also our love for the ocean.

Michael and Carolyn Linnemann purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michael and Carolyn Linnemann chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We rented a condo found on VRBO in the Holiday Villas II and fell in love with the building and decided to purchase a condo after just 1 week's stay. We fell in love with the beach, the building, and the owners. The condo is located in a very family oriented building but if you want to be around a lot of people just ride the Jolly Trolley up to Clearwater or down to St. Pete.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefit is location, location, location. It is fantastic to be located right on the beach. It is so convenient to be able to run up to your condo to get drinks, go to the restroom or grab a bit to eat while leaving your chairs or 4 post tent on the beach without a worry. This area is very family oriented.

Great condo, very well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed many times in Indian Shores and my family enjoyed another good one this October. The Linnemanns' condo is updated, tidy, and has just about anything you need. The kids enjoyed the movie selection in particular and Mom is partial to good bath towels, which were provided. The only hiccup we had was with some work being done on the building and Mr. Linnemann worked with us to remedy the challenges. It's a great, easy vacation for kids - beach, pool, and restaurants being so close.

Great location, great for families, great property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this property. It is perfect location. Close to John's Pass and Clearwater Beach. Close to major roads leading to airport. Spacious, clean, comfortable. Owners provided much useful information about transportation and local attractions. We also traveled to Orlando for a few days, but couldn't wait to get back to this condo. We spent a day at Clearwater Beach, but enjoyed the beach here just as well, if not better (waves were better!). Property office personnel were also helpful. Perfect accommodations for two parents and two teenage boys.

Large comfortable space for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our week at this condo was a lot of fun. The condo was very spacious which was important with two little boys running around. The balcony was also very spacious and not typical for condos in this price range. The furnishings were plentiful and comfortable. The beds were not very comfortable in our opinion. All the adults woke up with stiff shoulders and hips. The mattresses were not broken down but just too firm for our comfort. I think adding some memory foam toppers would save the day there. The kitchen was very well stocked. The owners also provided starter paper towels, toilet paper, and a couple dishwashing pods. It would be nice to have a bottle of dish soap on hand, and some staple spices. There were plenty of towels (3 adults and 2 kids and we didn't use all the towels). The laundry down the hall was convenient and very reasonably priced - I think $2 or $2.25 for wash/dry. The washers and dryers are very large and dry in one cycle. The location is great - in a quiet area but an easy drive to attractions, shops and restaurants. The condo building itself got pretty noisy at night. The bedrooms face the central courtyard are and with the way the building is shaped, it gets pretty echo-ey and loud at night with the teenagers running about. This was not an issue until the last night when we needed to get a good nights sleep and get up at 5 a.m. for an early flight. The pool is pretty big and we went there every day after spending the first part of the day on the beach. The beach is wide and clean, and very walkable. Beautiful sunsets as it typical on the Gulf coast, and everyone came out to the beach in the evenings to enjoy the sunsets. The property feels very secure, and I'm not someone who ever really thinks about that kind of thing. Codes to get into the elevator and pool, and a key needed for the door that leads to the units. Our parking spot was covered which was great, and the spaces are nice and wide. It would be really nice to have a carpet runner for the long front hallway. Since the common areas can get wet and sandy, having a place to wipe feet would be helpful. All in all, I would recommend this condo and this area. Mike and Caroline were very pleasant to work with.

Great condo, beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. It had everything we needed for a family with 3 kids. And beach is spectacular! It was not over crowded either which we loved!! We went to Devil Rays games and enjoyed a fun family dinner at Crabby Bills which is just a few minutes down the road. We will definitely be coming back again!

Great family vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the condo. My kids didn't want to leave the beach or pool to do anything else, even Busch gardens! There was so much to do, wave runners, mini golf and sunset at pier 60. The condo had everything we needed for our family of five with young kids, we all had enough room. The kitchen was fully equipped and we ate every meal there. Although it would have been nice to have a blender to make smoothies! We already are planning our next trip!

Excellent Beach Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay here. It is a wonderful location between the busier Clearwater & St Pete's, yet close enough to visit when/if wanted. It is directly on the beach with no need to cross the street or walk to an access spot. The unit was clean & well equipped. This place is not fancy, but has ample space & we just loved it. The king bed in the master was far & away the most comfortable (away from home) bed we've ever had & we travel ALOT. The 2 doubles seemed equally comfortable (at least the kids didn't complain) I never slept in those. Both bathrooms were spacious, clean, & well stocked. The living/dining/balcony area are also very spacious & we enjoyed alot of time there. The kitchen is where I spend alot of time on a trip & this was a great one. Nice & large & contains everything we needed.

There is an elevator which is important. My mom is handicapped & alot of places in the area do not have elevators.

The only negatives we can mention are VERY minor & would never deter us from coming again, but are helpful to know in advance.... There are alot of codes to remember. Keep them written in your wallet or text them to yourself right away. You need a code for the lock box to the keys for the unit, a seperate one for the elevator (which we like for security) & yet another for the pool. By the next day we had them all memorized & had no problems using them. Just a bit different from what we are used to. The only other thing I would mention is lack of beach towels. We were told there would be 2. If they were there, we never found them, but even at that, 2 are not enough for a two bedroom unit. So, plan accordingly & pack a few.

Holiday Villas II is located approximately 2 1/2 from Disney World and Universal Studios. It is near Busch Gardens approximately 45 minutes to Tampa. Our family really enjoys going to the Tampa Bay Ray games which are at the Tropicana Stadium located in St. Petersburg, Florida just 20 minutes from our Condo. Holiday Villas is located on the route of the Jolly Trolley that travels from Clearwater Beach to St. Pete's Beach. It is a great way for teenagers to travel along the beach. We are just a few miles from St. John's Pass which offers everything from shopping to restaurants to hang-gliding to fishing along with night life.
