|Minimum Stay||6 nights|
There is nothing between you and the water but sand...Spectacular dusk sunsets, shells galore, blue skies and warm coastal waters. A professionally decorated home-away-from-home with 1000 square feet of space and all the amenities for cooking in or being out. This fabulous first floor unit is one step off the elevator and 10 steps to your private balcony over looking the beach.
The Chateaux Community ( condo) is one of the most sought after buildings on the beach, most noted for it's location, privacy and views, cleanliness and ease to great beachfront dining, John's Pass shopping, boat rental & Smugglers cove miniature golf (across the street). You can stay busy with fishing, sailing boating, and shopping or curl up on a poolside chaise lounge with a good book and some sun screen. This unit has a 6night min. stay.
Reviews on this unit since updating have been wonderful. Full list of excellent golf courses are included ! Golf tennis and swimming, deep sea fishing , snorkeling and surfing are among the favored activities. Guests have raved about the cleanliness of the surroundings, pool area , loungers and beach, over and over.
This is one unit that can sleep 5 , as it includes a King bed in the Master, a queen pull out and a twin pull out -- fall asleep to the sound of the ocean !
The Photo opportunities are as endless as is the shelling!
There are numerous public and private courses in the Bay Area , all within a 15 to 30 minute drive from the condo, some very reasonably priced . My guests have said ( especially the men) this is one of their main reasons for vacationing on Indian Shores
We just returned from the best and most relaxing vacation! The Chateaux exceeded our expectations! The condo was beautifully decorated and provided the beginning to a wonderful week! Every household item was at our fingertips from the kitchen to bedding and bath. There were even a few surprises for the beach/pool area including beach towels, buckets and shovels and boogie boards. This made the kids cheer!! There was also a handy book of recommendations as well as brochures for local attractions. The master bedroom was an oasis of relaxation-the mattress was extremely comfortable! Our children slept quite well on the pull out beds. The balcony was perfect for views of the gulf, evening sunsets and dolphins. We enjoyed meals there in the morning and drinks in the evening. Just a few steps and we were on the gorgeous beach full of shells, beautiful white sand and the warm gulf waters. If the kids wanted a change from riding the waves, we walked back to the pool. It was perfect for swimming, sunbathing and reading. The property was very clean and well-maintained.
Our family enjoyed the quiet beach surroundings and less crowded location. However, we were close enough to visit other areas for the day or just a few hours. We took advantage of this by going to Clearwater Beach for the Sunset Festival, St. Petersburg's Pier and the aquarium. We also enjoyed a day trip to Busch Gardens. Not to miss is the Ferry from Honeymoon State Park to Caladesi Island. John's Pass was just a hop down the road for water adventures, good food at The Hut, and souvenir shops. We had great fun para-sailing (you must try this) and jet skiing! Dolphins a plenty to see each evening!
Local restaurants we enjoyed were the Conch Republic, Crabby Bills and Bubba Gumps for seafood, DeLosa's for good New York Style Pizza. Grocery stores were close to pick up necessities also.
We really can't say enough about our terrific experience at the Chateau! We would definately recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing place to call home for awhile. Heather has a great place for you and your family to enjoy.
Broken glass and toe nail clippings all over the carpet upon arrival! Temperature rule not to put AC below 78 degrees in summer! Bedroom was extremely hot and sheets were nubby! One burner on stove did not work. Packing tape all over the backs of the dining room chairs. Maybe to protect them from wet towels? We don't need stainless steel appliances or gleaming granite counter tops, but we do expect a clean and comfy condo. Private email to owner with attached pictures remains unanswered.
Grounds, beach and pool area were gorgeous! Fellow condo dwellers were extremely nice and helpful! Wonderful restaurants and Dolphin Tour at John's Pass is a must!
We will return to the Chateaux, but will not stay in this Unit.
We loved staying in this condo! It was clean, much larger than other condos we researched, beautiful view of the gulf/beach, so many beach toys to use, great location to Tampa/Clearwater/John's Pass/St. Petersburg, and so easy to access with the access pad lock system rather than having to keep track of a key. We would totally recommend this condo to anyone researching this area, and cannot wait to come and visit again!!
We loved our stay. The condo was very clean and well equipped though we didn't eat in very often. The sunsets were fantastic and the sun was wonderful but it was rather cool most of the time through the fault of no one. The bottle of wine was a nice touch. The bed was very comfortable. Lots of good restaurants near by. We would highly recommend this location and wish to return.
Condo has everything you need. We have rented a lot of Condos throughout Florida and find this one of the best equipped we have had. Pool is heated and building is well maintained. Friends are in another unit in building and this one is much nicer furnished. I was worried about the laundry right across from the unit but it has not been a problem but a benefit.
Heather and Heidi has been very helpful and quick to respond. We will be back.
Our Christmas break was amazing and just what we needed! The property is beautiful, relaxing and we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Our view of the beach was spectacular, dolphins, shells, steps away from the sand....it couldn't have been any better. This was a trip that our family will talk about for years and years. Thank you for sharing your place with us.
