  • I had a very BAD experience, especially the HOST - Ellen.
    For my case, I felt being bullied by the host, everything she wants is "MONEY."
    Share my story here, hope to help you guys consider again before decide to stay here.
    1. The first 4 weeks was fine, we sometimes dinner together, chat a lot, good
    communication, just like made a friend with the host.
    I asked the host can I invite my friend to have a party at backyard and ask that
    can we smoke outside at the backyard, she said ok.
    A mistake made that a small cigaret burn at the table outdoor in the
    backyard. I confessed right away to the host, and she
    showed me the table's price 175$ USD on iPad in front of my face
    immediately. I have taken picture of the table burn, it is rarely recognised, I
    wish I can post here to show you guys. But the her attitude is very cold and
    force me to buy a new one if IKEA can not replace partially.
    -- We went to IKEA 2 days after, no replacement partially, so I bought a new
    table with 187.25 USD (with TAX) for them at the IKEA that day.
    2. I stay down stair (not the mother-in-law suite) for 6 weeks, in the email, she
    said 70$/day including everything. But she extra charge me 45$ USD cleaning
    TWICE, one for the room down stair, and another 45$ for the room upstair. And
    furthermore, when I moved all my stuff to upstair being very busy, she came
    upstair and told me to throw the trash (which was packed up in bags already)
    away myself. She charge me cleaning fee 45$ x2 = 90$ USD, and ORDER me
    to throw packed trash away. I have NEVER been treated this way, neither hotel
    or bnb.
    3. When I talked about these two thing above to the host, I was talking, want to
    discuss, but she was loudly SHOUTing at me !! She said that I have to bring
    the trash out or she gives back 45$ to me, and I have to CLEAN THE TOILET
    and FLOOR and EVERYTHING ! So, finally I did bring them out myself, as her
    Because when she was too emotional, it's impossible to discuss anything......
    4. The first several weeks was fine, we were like friends.
    But since something is not following her will, everything she wants is only
    "MONEY," there is no such thing as friendship anymore. And NOTHING is
    negotiable. You have to do exactly what she orders you to do.
    And after she shout at me the day that I try to discuss the issue, she never
    talked to me anymore.

    I have bought a new table for them, have paid clean fee twice, total 275$ USD,
    and what I got is been shouted by the host when I tried to discuss about it.

  • It was AWESOME to stay with Nelissen family in Clearwater and I highly recommend this place. Ellen is all the time somewhere near ready to help you with all demands. They are all very nice and give you the feeling that you are like home :) We stayed there in the second half of October and the weather was great, water was warm. Definitely take a boat trip with Ellen and Hugo and visit Honeymoon island! We loved it!
    Take care

  • Ellen was very respectful of our privacy in the suite that we rented out! It's a fantastic house, with an amazing atmosphere! Ellen was very accommodating to our needs. We brought our dog 'Bella' and being a puppy she was a bit too energetic for Ellen's Beagles, however, it was easy for us to manage the dogs with the help of Ellen. Bella enjoyed the nice backyard, as did we!

    The suite itself was very nice. Especially the Jacuzzi Tub that was perfect after a busy day at the beach, shopping, and activities

    We would recommend Ellen's suite for anybody. It is a gorgeous room in a beautiful house!

  • Ellen's house is fantastic!
    The place is impecably clean and comfortable, and Ellen's family is very nice with their guests, providing everything you could possibly need.
    It surely is one of the best places we've ever stayed using airbnb.
    Thank you very much Ellen, Hugo, Jade, Roxy, Luna.

  • What a fantastic experience all around. Starting from arrival and ending at departure, Ellen and Hugo were 5 star hosts every minute. The room matches the description to a T... except now it includes a table/work station and chair, which was very helpful. Upon checking in, Ellen was friendly and discussed some fun activities in the area. She offered us coupons for dinners out and let us in on the "secret" beaches the locals visit.

    This high end home is clean and welcoming, as if we were staying in our own hotel. It was so central to all the things we needed. We had our own privacy and a TON of space. What a delightful experience to add to our airbnb travel list! We will certainly be back!

    Thank you!

  • Thank Ellen,
    It was a pleasure to stay in your beautiful home and meet your family. The room is even better than described. Very clean, large and comfortable. We could not have asked for a more pleasant place to rest our heads. Thank you and we'll be in touch when we're in the area again.

I am European, born and raised in Belgium. I am married to Hugo, who is Belgian as well. We have 2 daughters also Belgian. We moved to the Clearwater area 8 yrs ago. I am very social, I love to talk. I am active and athletic, I love horses. I love boating and relaxing by the Clearwater Islands during the weekends. Ask us about our boating offer as well, because we would love to take you out for a nice boating trip while you are staying at our house. We have posted the boat on Airbnb as well. We are very honest, respectful and caring people. We hope to be able to host to the same kind of people. We have traveled a lot, we speak several languages. We love to make other people feel at home in Clearwater Florida and hope to make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I am confident you will love our house accomodation and you will totally love the Clearwater beaches, as we do too.
