About Rose and Moe

We are a Canadian Couple living in Toronto. My wife grew up in London, England. We have been visiting Florida for a few years and during our travels we fell in love with Indian Shores. In our humble opinion it is one of the finest beaches in the U.S.

Rose and Moe purchased this condo in 2015

Why Rose and Moe chose Indian Shores

The Chateaux Condo property is quiet and the location is right on the beach. It is very conveniently located with excellent access to shopping, restaurants, entertainment and attractions. This condo is owner operated and we stay there as often as we can. This means that we take a great deal of pride of ownership and provide our guests with all the comforts of home. It is important to us that our guests feel at home and are comfortable.

What makes this condo unique

You are right on the beach. We have also taken the time to re-decorate and re-furnish our condo with an exquisite personal taste that exemplifies beach living. We have provided many amenities for the comfort and enjoyment of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to say again how much we enjoyed your condo . The extra effort you made to have everything fresh and new and so thoughtfully furnished with everything we could want or need to make our stay enjoyable. The notebook of things to do and see and all the beach paraphernalia and kitchen supplies ( loved the spice rack) were all unexpected touches that we haven't found at other condos.

You were both so helpful and seem like people one would like to get to know. Sincerely,
Jan 2016

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review. Our balcony is definitely one of the best places to be. You can enjoy our fabulous sunsets having a meal on our raised Spanish tiled table or sipping a glass of wine sitting in our comfy love seat and chairs. One sure thing is, that you will have one of the most fabulous views of the beach and the Gulf waters. If you are an early riser, we also have beautiful sunrises too. We look forward to hosting you again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review of our condo. We do have a spectacular view of the beach from our balcony and the sunsets are just amazing. We are very happy that you enjoyed staying at our condo. We do take pride of ownership and make sure that we do upgrades every time we are there. We just got our condo painted in December 2017. We also bought new box springs for our beds at that time as well as a lovely Ethan Allen desk. In July 2017 we replaced the entire air conditioning unit for a brand new one. We look forward to hosting you again.

Your condo made our vacation so enjoyable. The furniture and furnishings that all matched were beautiful! We enjoyed the patio a lot and saw several dolphins. It was very kind of you to furnish beach towels, chairs, plenty of regular towels, etc. All in all the condo was perfect for a relaxing, recharge our batteries kind of vacation. Thanks for letting us use it! We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to host you. Since your departure we got the condo painted and it looks very nice. We also bought a new desk so that guests can use it for their laptops. I'll be posting new photos very soon. Rose loves to do the decorating part and she wanted to give the condo a calm and serene feel. We have made sure that the whole condo is fully equipped with everything you would need for a great vacation. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Thank you.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

After many years of holidaying in Florida we have never returned to the same rental preferring to move round and experience different places.

Last year we came to Indian Shores and stayed in this wonderful condo and it left such an impression on us that we returned this year not for one but two weeks. To do this for the first time in 20+ years really is testimony to just how much we would recommend this to anyone wanting an amazing location and a fantastic place to stay.

Thanks guys for letting us use your wonderful home, we can’t wait to make it a third time next year.
