About the Host, Alex
My wife and I met in a small town in Ohio when Irina was just sixteen years old, and we have been together ever since (we’ve been married for a long time!). We currently live in Virginia and bought this villa in June of 2013 with the dream of eventually retiring to Anna Maria Island to spend more time with our families.
We have traveled all over the world, and Villa Chez Shell is by far our favorite place to kick back and relax. We fell in love with the Island on our first visit and are sure that you will too!
We want the villa to be filled with warmth, love, laughter, and beautiful memories. This is where you come in. During your visit, please make yourselves at home and have fun with the ones you love!
~Alex and Irina
