Irina and I met in a small town in Ohio when Irina was just 16 years old, and we have been together ever since (we have been married for a very long time!).  We currently live in Virginia and bought this home on Anna Maria Island in 2013 with the dream of eventually retiring to Florida to spend more times 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 trip and are sure you will too!

We want this home to be filled with 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!
