Chateaux Condominium 304
If you're looking for a beautiful view, this unit is great and has a nice pool. If you're looking for a comfortable vacation, you should run away fast. The furniture in this unit would be more useful for terrorist interrogations instead of waterboarding. Until this owner does some basic updating with new deck furniture, living room furniture, and a new mattress; no one should rent this unit again. The deck furniture is a PVC frame with uneven sling material stretched over it, you can't sit in it in any comfortable way. The living room sofas are very old and also horribly uncomfortable. The bed is a bit deceiving because it is soft, but you sleep so unevenly that you wake up with back pains. It was so bad that my wife actually started sleeping in the recliner in the living room to try to relieve the back pain from the bed.
Everything in this condo is very old. I have photos & pics of the room if you want them. I'm happy to send pictures of all these issues to anyone who asks because I don't see how I can attach them here. The shelves in the freezer are rusted, there are no shelves in the door for refrigerator storage, and the microwave actually has Cabinetry knobs screwed on it instead of a handle. The tile work looks like it was done by a first-time DIY person. They actually left the spacers between some of the tile when they grouted. Some grout is missing. Other tiles creek when you walk on them. The bathroom sink is rusted and the toilet rocks all over the place because it's not bolted down correctly. The owner is basically a slum lord with beach property. I looked at several other units in the same building and all were upgraded and appeared to have much newer and more comfortable furniture.
The Indian shores area is very nice and the Chateaux building and grounds are certainly nice enough overall; but unit 304 is a total disaster if you're looking for any level of comfort at all. I strongly suggest looking at any other unit in Chateaux until the owner updates and repairs 304. I have lots of photos if anyone would like me to email them to you.
The owner shows no care whatsoever. The list of broken and substandard items is endless:
Broken front screen door, floor tiles are lifting, bathroom sink is rusty, bedroom window falls out when opened,screen is severely bent, many of the fixtures are rusty,the furniture is. So old it sags, the fridge has no retainers on the door so no storage there, it is rusting at the bottom with rust stains on the floor,the patio screen door handle is broken someone has put a bread bag tie on it to act as a handle,the fridge and stove have never been leveled( try cooking an egg),the patio furniture is so cheap it is hard to sit on,the couch is so uncomfortable able and sags so badly you have to sleep on the floor..
There are more serious items like :
Tthe wiring to the ceiling fan in the living room is falling off the wall. Several of the electrical outlets are very loose.
The fridge has no retaining bars on it so storage is very limited, fixed it by putting duct tape on it!!
The window falls out of the screen door, don’t know how that hasn’t broken yet there are tears in the aluminum creating sharp edges.
The tv in the bedroom is an old school 19”!!
I have pictures of all of these items.
