Kevin. 38 years old from Florida, USA. I love futbol, beer, business..
Kevin was a wonderful host, and the condo was PERFECT. 3 girlfriends and I stayed for 4 nights and quickly realized that we never wanted to leave. A few comments on the great amenities:
-The condo was perfectly equipped with kitchen appliances and all the cooking implements we needed.
-The bedroom was bright and delightful, and the pull-out bed in the living room was very comfortable (I actually opted to sleep on it all 4 nights instead of switching with my friends).
-The tasteful beach-themed decor added a great deal to the homey vibe.
-Publix supermarket was extremely close by (2 blocks) and had a complete and wide variety of food.
-Kevin provided his iPod speaker system when I asked if there was anywhere we could plug in an iPod (above and beyond the call of duty!)
-The beach was less than 4 minutes of walking away and very lovely.
-The on-site pool was exceedingly clean and equipped with pool toys, beach lounge chairs, and had a great view of the bay. I recommend going to the pool earlier in the day because the sun dips below the building around 5, at which point the pool area becomes chilly in the shade.
I highly recommend this place!
Excellent accommodation. We were met on the first day by Kevin's dad who gave us a tour and explained the keys. The condo is exactly as it is shown in the pictures and description. Plenty of information about the area and the resort in the condo.
We had a lovely time while we were here, the condo is near all of the treats of Treasure Island, a pool onsite and the beach across the road, there is even a space reserved for your car. There is a brand new Publix just 2 mins up the road for all your needs and local restaurants are well worth trying (Ricky Ts and Sloggy's were the two we tried).
We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.
Thank you Alvarez Family for a lovely holiday.
Kevin is a kind and courteous host. His house was clean and nice place to relax after a long day. I was in the Lakeland area for my daughter's soccer tournament. My daughter's team was staying at a really expensive hotel in Orlando. I did not want to spend that much money, so I let her stay with her team and I found Kevin's listing on AIrBnB that was much more in my price range. Not only did I get a great place to stay, I met a really friendly person who was kind enough to share his home-brewed beer! I would say that Kevin's house is perfect for anyone who needs to do anything at the three nearby universities. Southeastern U. is literally steps away from his house, Florida Southern and USF Tech are a short walk or bike ride away, too. This is also a great spot for anyone who needs to stay for an extended period of time for business in the Lakeland area. Kevin makes you feel right at home immediately and, when you come back at the end of the day, you feel like you are in your own home. Kevin's place is also very convenient to both the Orlando and the Tampa theme parks, attractions, and sporting events. You can make it to either town in less than 30-45 minutes. You can also save a whole lot more money by staying in Lakeland at Kevin's place rather than at some overpriced hotel in either Tampa or Orlando. Plus, you get a great host who is a Central Florida native who knows everything about the area and who is just a really cool guy. I had to cut my trip short (my daughter's team was eliminated from the tournament) and I was disappointed that I didn't get to stay another night. I highly recommend this place and, if I ever need to stay in the area again, this is where I hope to stay. P.S.- Kevin also has a beach house rental. Ask him about it.
We loved the place and it had everything we needed to feel home and provide for our toddler. The long beach is right across the street and the pool by the bay is wonderful as well. The Alvarez family was very friendly and welcoming!
What a great condo! Kevin and his family were extremely welcoming and accommodating. Our flight didn't get in until 10pm and he was fine meeting us then, even though is was so late. He even had a little welcome basket for us! It was a wonderful little condo that was easy to find, and very well maintained. The weather didn't quite cooperate which was unfortunate, so we didn't have any sun while we were there, but the Dali museum was only about 20 minutes away and was really cool, and the restaurants were delicious. Thanks for a great stay Kevin and family!
Kevin stayed at our apartment for a few days. The apartment was left spotless! Kevin is an extremely positive person with a love for travelling.:) We hope to see him again!
Kevin est un garçon respectueux.
je ne parle pas bien anglais, et lui pas bien français,
donc nous avons eu quelques difficultés de communication.
