About Tina Austin

We bought two units in the Chateaux Condo in 1978 when it was brand new. Rented it through a rental agency for years until we retired here 20 yrs ago. Ever since then we rent it ourselves and oversee everything. We live nearby...this unit probably has more 'repeat' rentals than any other unit. No surprises when you rent know it will always be immaculate and well stocked.

Tina Austin purchased this condo in 1978

Why Tina Austin chose Indian Shores

We bought at Chateaux and eventually moved here from Phila because Tampa Bay is Heaven! We live very close to

the condo....and I manage it myself.

What makes this condo unique

this 2nd floor end unit is owned and managed by ourselves....we provide more than enough linens and towels.....Beach Towels....soaps, beach & lounge chair, umbrella etc..much more than the average unit.......

Finally after spending 2 years searching and finding our new home in Homosassa and leaving the Florida Keys that entailed moving, making updates, painting and the usual at our new residence, we missed #209, even after going there for the past 11 years, we were able to get away for a few days and return--very happy to see that what we remembered and enjoyed so much did not change--the Condo was perfect as usual, well stocked, maintained and everything you could ask for was unchanged. Fantastic views directly overlooking the Gulf. Weather was great and even though Tina lost her husband Dick this year, she has been able to carry on with making sure the Condo is like it's yours when you enter--just could not ask for anymore in a beachside rental that has everything one would want to vacationing in Indian Rocks Beach--Thanks again Tina--now that we're closer we plan on coming several times a year---Steven/Sharon---transplants from the Florida Keys

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time staying at your condo.

It was very nice and extremely clean. We loved the view from the balcony, TV, huge bed

and all the other amenities that were there. Plan on staying there again next year. Thanks for

being so accomodating and such a nice Chateaux condo owner.

We don't want to sound like a broken record as we've been coming to Tina/Dick Austin's condo now for 8 years and consider it our 2nd home away from home!! For 8 days weather was fantastic, the water was great to swim in, the condo was in it's usual "tip-top condition" , endless things to do in the surrounding area, just makes for a perfect vacation retreat--THERE'S JUST NO WAY YOU CAN GO WRONG WITH STAYING HERE IN THIS UNIT!!!!!---------THANKS AGAIN AUSTINS--Steven/Sharon

We had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful condo. It was well stocked. Very clean and quiet. We visit this area yearly. But this was the first time in Tina's condo. We were very happy. Laundry room provided on site is great. We even had beach chairs and pool noodles to use. The only bad part was having to leave and come home to Iowa. Awesome beach view. Great Sunsets. Nicely furnished. Thanks again for the use of your very nice condo. We hope to come back again real soon.
