Can’t beat the sunsets but unfortunately can’t say much else good about this unit. Furniture is very old and uncomfortable. Our guests preferred the floor to the horrible pull out couch. Mattress is a squishy mess. The appliances are old and rusty. The fridge has no shelves on the door, the microwave opens with old drawer pulls and the stove is so out of level cooking is a challenge. There is no handle on the screen door to the balcony. A bread bag tie is there instead. The bedroom window fell out and chattered. Rug was filthy and left our feet black. Tile floors are lifting. Need I say more??? This unit should not be rented again before some serious updating.
Carol T.on 02/25/2017
We love chateau and have stayed in many units. Nothing beats the gulf front view. The unit, however, needs lots of work and updating. Floor tiles loose in hallway. Refrigerator missing door shelf. Bathroom outdated. Couch not comfortable for sitting, and mattress thin, wires poking, unable to sleep on. Bookshelf missing shelves. Master bedroom ok. Patio furniture newer. But the inside just seems worn and dated and uncared for. We had great weather, so able to spend most of the time outside. We visit every year. Will not stay in this unit again.

We chose Chateaux 304 because of the availability, location, and price the week of Thanksgiving. It was exactly as described and pictured, perhaps even better! The view of the gulf is amazing, the condo is quite spacious and the accommodations were comfortable and exactly what we needed. Working with Matt initially, then the Florida Lifestyles contacts, was a pleasant experience. Everyone was responsive and communicative regarding my questions. The reservation, check-in, and check-out process was smooth, and everyone was friendly and professional. The Chateaux is located in an area convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and other shopping. Its on-the-beach location is perfect for those who like to watch the sunset or just enjoy the sound of the waves. The open balcony allowed for beautiful pictures of the sunset without a screen to block the view. I would definitely like to reserve the same unit in the future.

Great location with awesome ocean front balcony just steps to the beach. Very nice & quiet facility. 3rd floor condo with decent size pool & well kept. The condo was average with needs of some minor updating. The pull out mattress sofa was very uncomfortable & needs replacing. The room was stocked with beach chairs, shovel, bucket, misc items to enjoy the beach. The management company is very close to the condo approximately half mile down the street (nice). Thanks Matt for the great deal!!
Bruce M.on 04/09/2016
The unit in the chateaux was very nice and clean when we arrived. It was well equipped with everything one could possibly want. The grounds were kept up beautifully and the access to the beach is wonderful. The location of the Chateaux is perfect near bars and restaurants.
Jack and Gerry B.on 02/20/2016
We were very disappointed in the unclean condition of the condo. The bath tub drain would not close . Rental agency offered to fix the problems but we di not want our time taken up with things that should have been done BEFORE we came in. Glass table top had sharp corners and was very dangerous. Love the location and will be back next year. Not at this unit . This is not the unit we had put a deposit on but it sold
Jennifer B.on 11/25/2015
We had a very lovely time at #304. The condominium is appointed with all of your basic necessities, including a blender (for those tropical drinks). We absolutely loved this part of the beach. It was both very clean and quiet. We had a nice walk one morning to find fishermen catching a big one and a jam session of 20-something group of men/women - which was a highlight. The condominium is very close to shopping and restaurants. We highly suggest the Salt Rock Grill. The room could use a touch of paint, but overall, for the price, the size of the room (which is large for a 1 bedroom) and the location, you really cannot complain much about this room.
However, while I did read the reviews about bringing toilet paper and paper towels, I do find this a bit stingy and tacky to do to any traveler, especially when adding a couple extra rolls are nominal in the scheme of things. It's just not something even the most season travelers, as ourselves, really think about doing since this is actually the first place we have ever encountered that do not supply extra rolls of toilet paper and supply paper towels. Also, some basic cleaning supplies like windex would be nice to clean countertops, etc. That is definitely not something anyone should think a traveler would purchase. But, I am not going to complain about the small things in life (first world problems).
Shelly W.on 11/09/2015
Awesome view of the beach and the building is in pretty good shape but the unit needs a little work. Master bed is not supportive and should be updated. Window inMaster bedroom does not have a good shade so all the outside building lights shine in at night making it difficult to sleep. Molding around bathtub was pretty dirty and some mold in the shower. The appliances are pretty low end and old. This place could be really great with just a little money invested to update and clean up a bit.
Ricky B.on 10/25/2015
Condo is definitely dated.
Microwave needs to be replaced. Refrigerator was not clean and rack shelf is rusty.
Fluorescent light in kitchen needs to have tubes replaced.
A lot of dusting needs to be done.
Patio door will not lock, so I unscrewed the broom head and used the broom handle as a stop.
HVAC registers are all rusty.
Some of the hall floor tile are coming loose.
A lot of the floor tile grout has not been cleaned in a long time.
Had to dust off a portable fan, which could not have been used in months, before we could use.
Bathroom wood trim need to be painted or replaced.
Wiring behind TV is mixed up in the drapes, causing the TV to shut off.
The 6-plex receptacle units, indicates how out of date the wiring is.
The 'PVC' wiring for the ceiling fans, I 'know' is an NFPA violation. This is not good al all.
Of all the condos I have vacationed at, including The Rose in Indian Shores, I would not return to this one or recommend to anyone.
Tracy Y.on 09/21/2015
The rental company was very helpful and did a great job of letting me know what to expect during our stay. The view from this condo is absolutely beautiful. All the furniture is in great shape and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious. We got to see dolphins and stingrays during our stay. Lots of choices for dining within walking distance. Overall wonderful experience.
Victor H.on 08/10/2015
The room an property were excellent. It had perfect views and was very clean. It's location was not far from restaurants and shopping areas. We would definitely stay again. I would like to offer 2 minor suggestions however. The coffee table has a thick sheet of glass on it as the top. This sheet of glass has sharp edges. I got a pretty good cut from it and my son also go a minor cut. I suggest some kind of guards should be placed on the corners or that the glass should be replaced with beviled glass. Also most people don't usually think to bring toilet paper. When we ran out there were no reserve rolls. It would be great if you had one reserve roll so if used it would give enough time to buy more. I had to drive to the store at 9:00 at night as we were out.
Holly N.on 07/25/2015
This was our 3rd stay at The Chateaux Condominiums, however this was our first time renting this unit. I was very pleased with everything...beautiful view, excellent rate, perfect location! I would definitely rent this unit again. Thank you to the owners for providing a wonderful place for our family to vacation and relax!! It felt like our home away from home!
Floyd H.on 04/25/2015
bathroom and kitchen could be updated and modernized.
Nena K.on 03/28/2015
Had a great vacation and stay at the Chateaux 304..Nice condo with a beautiful view...The condo could of been cleaner but overall a great place! Thanks!
Joe & Donna M.on 01/31/2015
We stayed February 2015. Facility was good. Bathroom and kitchen need updating balance of condo in good shape. Need better linens for bed. Sheets that fit a deep pocket mattress.
We enjoyed our stay even thou the weather was cool and rainy but was overall good.
Hershel C.on 01/17/2015
Pleasant surroundings. Quiet. Pool well maintained. Good restaurants. Convenient to theaters.

A while ago we were sitting on the balcony listing to the waves from the Gulf in 80 degree weather. Today I have to shovel snow! You get the picture. We were surprised how loud the surf was when the balcony doors were open. Highly recommend Condo 304. The unit was clean and nicely decorated and the people we met were very friendly. The pool or the beach-you can not go wrong!
Cathy V.on 06/13/2014
The location was great. Condo was clean some repairs were needed. The family staying above us kept us up all night,every night. Kids running and screaming ??we cut our stay by two days.
Carol A.on 06/04/2014
We had a great vacation. The condo was excellent and we hope to stay here again.
Joyce B.on 05/09/2014
Bathroom could use some updates...But over
all was pleased with unit...
Michael W.on 04/26/2014
We have stayed in different units at the Chateau. We like the complex this unit is in serious need of a facelift. Doubt there have been any upgrades since it was built.
William S.on 04/19/2014
We've stayed at this building before (different unit/different property management), and I have to say, I liked the last experience better. A few things: on the VR website, this unit said it included beach towels, there were no towels, and we had to buy our own, there was 1 roll of toilet paper for the entire week (with no Kleenex, so we had to buy our own, the drawer in the living room for our child to use for her things was broken (still, apparently, because we saw the last renters say the same thing from last year, also they had to buy beach towels too. the overall cleanliness was marginal. it looked like someone had just "touched" things up, but not really clean. The little plant in the bathroom had inches of dust stuck to it. however, the sights were spectacular out the patio and the building and unit itself was in a great location. I don't mean to be so negative, because we really did have a great time, it's just these little things that we didn't want to have to deal with while we were having our family vacation.
Daniel & Angela G.on 03/29/2014
We really enjoyed our stay at Chateaux 304. We would recommend this condo. Condo was very clean.
Greg & Joyce R.on 01/18/2014
Indian Shores is an awesome location to which we would like to return. This unit is needing a little tweeking but overall it was pretty nice. There were 3 significant houskeeping issues when we first arrived that the management company took care of within minutes. Our biggest question is: 'Who picked the exterior color scheme for the building?' lol
Thanks for a nice time.
Christina T.on 01/04/2014
Great unit, great location, great value. Bathroom is a bit dated. Kitchen well equipped, other than lack of broiler pan. Property management very helpful.
Gabriel V.on 10/14/2013
The elevator was broken three different times. The toilet overflowed the first morning of our stay requiring me to go out and disinfect the bathroom after washing all the towels and the bathroom rug.The air conditioner stop working requiring maintenance.Things could have gone better.
Kathryn H.on 10/04/2013
really enjoyed the condo-very clean, on the ocean with a pool, great area to go, will go back again.......
Kevin M.on 06/08/2013
I would recommend the complex but not the unit we stayed in. Not up to date - needs minor repairs in bathroom.
Sangita D.on 05/22/2013
The reservation process at first left me feeling insecure that the transaction was completed properly. Past experience from Homes Away required a contract to be completed. It took phone calls to Florida Lifestyle to get a confirmation that made us feel the room would be there when we arrived.
The condo was located near a local police post and added to the sense of security in the area. People left items near the pool without having to worry that they would be there when they returned.
The view of the beach was beautiful and the grounds were kept clean. There was a binder on the coffee table that had brochures people had left and comments written in for suggestions of where to eat and go. We took the advice the first night and went to E&E Steakout Grill. It was posted as the best place to eat in the area. We wanted to find somewhere that wasn't a chain restaurant where we could enjoy a fine meal. The setting was pleasant and food was excellent.
The only complaints of the condo itself was that the balcony screen door did not move smoothly to close. We gave up trying to get it closed. The cooking wares were limited to where we had to use aluminum foil to bake rolls or biscuits. The owner said he only comes to the property every other year. He sounded as though he didn't want to invest in the extras to supply the condo right, even though you are required to pay a damage insurance fee. The bedroom looked like it had artwork in the past over the bed, but had been removed for some reason. The floor plan put the bedroom on the front side of the building. We would have liked it to be connected to the balcony facing the beach/gulf allowing us to hear the waves at night in bed.
The bed was very comfortable with a king sized pillow top mattress.
Overall the condo was a good deal for the price.
Our overall experience was very pleasant. The condo was clean and the king size bed was very comfortable. The balcony over looking the Gulf was very relaxing and gave an excellent view. Our only recommendation is to give renters key pick up instruction beforehand. We arrived on a Sunday when the office was closed. The paper I had said to call for key pick up instructions. I called the number and the gentleman who answered told me to call back during normal business hours. After a few min of trying to explain that I am checking in and calling on Monday would not work he finally told me that the keys were in the mail box! Parking spots are very tight so if you have a full size truck be prepared to try and squeeze in. Any other interaction with the staff was pleasant and he had no further issues. We would be glad to vacation there again.
It was a wonderful vacation! My #1 requirement is a beachfront/amazing view and we got that TENFOLD! The patio is very roomy. The condo is a great size and kitchen is nicely stocked with utensils, etc. Thank you for a great vacation.
This was the first time visiting Indian shores! Wow! What a beautiful place..
The condo was very clean and spacious, had everything we needed for our stay.Matt, was very easy to talk to and took the time to answered all of our questions, and lifestyle vacation rental was very helpful, friendly and professional.. Met a lot of very friendly people during our stay. Will definitely be back..
Your first impression is not good as the front screen door is broken and looks awful. Upon entering you see the water and beach and that view is great. That does help make up for it. The cleaners did an excellent job. It is very obvious the owners do not put any money into the unit. Examples: coffee maker is disgusting, pots and pans should be replaced, there is one set of king sheets and two queen sets for a unit with a king bed, no beach towels (which are bulky if you have to bring them), fridge runs constantly if you want to keep items cold, HBO would be welcome as you need to drive to go anywhere and some nights you might want to stay in, film on the windows is starting to peel, bedroom window has one white blind which means at night you have the street lights keeping the room well lit and in the morning the sun is shining in by 6:30 am (in May) and so on. The location is good for Publix, Winn Dixie and John's Pass which are all within 6 miles. The building itself is well looked after.
furnishings were dated and worned
Overall, the condo was what I expected. It was a little dated and there were some areas that were a little worn and tired but overall for the price, it was what I expected. Best selling point is the location. Direct beachfront and you cannot beat the view from your balcony.
Our rental experience was great. The condo had everything we needed to have a relaxing stay. We could hang out at the pool or beach, which was right out the door. We also enjoyed hanging out on the balcony. There were books in the condo, so I actually read two books while I was there, something I hadn't taken the time to do in quite some time. I wish I could go back right now.
The location of this condo was awesome. The views and the sunset is breathtaking. The management, check in, and check out is great. The cleaning was very good. However, the condo really needs updated. It's very 70's looking. The pillows need replaced as they are flat. The bed was very comfortable. Other than the decor...this place is great. But don't the the decor stop you from booking this. It really was a fabulous stay.
Weather was nice - enjoyed walking beach and sitting out on balcony. Explored area Clearwater to St. Pete and then Sanibel and Captiva. Had many nice dinners ar area restaurants
We just went for a long weekend and were lucky to find a beautiful place on the beach that would rent for 3 days. You had a full view of the ocean from the moment you entered the condo. The condo was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We would stay here again and recommend it highly.
Beautiful location with all amenities. The view is amazing. Some renovations would be needed but overall we are very satisfied with our vacation. One day we will return.
Unit was everything that we expected and more. Not one thing to complain about..Well stocked and very large space to enjoy with our friends and family.
The condo could have been cleaner, the carpets had a sticky feeling. The bathroom could use an update with new toilet, tub, vanity & faucets, the shower head was really clogged.
The bedroom window needs to be fixed, the caulking was gone in places and the wind blew right through and it was quite noisy! Maybe paint the entire unit!
We were only there for 5 days so it wasn't that bad, but if we had been there for 1 or 2 weeks I think these things may have been quite annoying!
All in all the condo was very comfortable & well equipped. The bed & pillows were very comfortable. However, I would suggest the 2 beach chairs in the closet be replaced for more comfortable chairs. You couldn't lay back on them because the bar dug into your back.
We loved the location & the view of the beach was amazing. The building was very clean, neat & well maintained!
Property management have always been very good to deal with. We have stayed in this building several times, love the location, on the beach , very quiet and relaxing.
We had a great Spring Break stay with our two teenage daughters. We all enjoyed runs on the beach and quiet afternoons reading at the pool. Sunset dinners on the balcony were a highlight. Condo is clean and comfortable. The girls were quite content on the pull out couch. They opened the sliding door to hear the waves at night. We will return!
The unit was generally well equipped and presentable but a much more detailed cleaning process is / was required. Air vents were very dirty and there was dust quite evident on the walls / ceilings in the vicinity of air ducts. Floor tiles were loose in some areas and there were some stains on the carpeted area. The exterior of the building and amenities were in very good condition and appeared to be well maintained.
While there are plenty of beaches in the Redington Shores area, there's a lot of cool nature stuff to see and do as well! The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is one of the most popular attractions in the area -- you could spend all day gazing at these beautiful birds! The Town Square Nature Park is a pretty great stop-off, too. It offers a peaceful walking area and bird-watching area. There are plenty of other outdoor activities you can take advantage of though, too, from the white sandy beaches to whale or dolphin watching on a boat. Some popular water activities in the area include parasailing, paragliding, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddleboarding, and fishing. You can rent a boat or charter a boat to go fishing or just sight-seeing. Island Marine Rentals offers a lot of gear for all types of activities. Smuggler Cove Adventure Golf is a great spot for the kids and family too, if you're into mini golf. If the indoors are more your thing, you'll find lots of great restaurants, shops, and bars in the area, including Mahuffer's, which is a popular local beach bar many tourists enjoy stopping off at.
