Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bed/2Baths, Sleeps 4; eat in kit, living & dining rm,Lanai w/lake view

We are Nancy and George from Connecticut. We have had wonderful vacations here in this, our only vacation home, in Bradenton, on Florida's beautiful Gulf Coast. We accidently discovered Shorewalk when we stayed there while our daughter attended the Bollettieri Tennis Academy, just down the road. Perfect location! Free wifi and land line phone, nation wide! Modernized kitchen, new flooring and King size mattress in Master bedroom!

The Shorewalk complex is 30 acres of 2 story buildings with mostly 2 bedroom condos, six lakes, 2 swimming pools, 2 tennis courts, basketball and bocce courts and a playground.

Our newest addition to activities here is a PICKLEBALL court. Pickle Ball is the fastest growing sport in the country! Lots of fun for everyone!

The area is surrounded by many golf courses; it's a 10 minute drive to beautiful beaches; a short walk to the

supermarkets, Aldi's and Publix, pharmacy, stores, restaurants and a walk across the street to the movie theatre.

The Shorewalk Clubhouse has BBQ grills, snack bar, library, ping pong, billiard/pool, video games and social activities. The resort has a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere and very friendly people from all over the world.

We've also discovered G.T. Bray, Recreation Department. It's a full sports facility and activity center and it's only 3 mins away by car or a 5 minute bike ride. It's probably a 15 minute walk. The best part is that it's only $20 a month. There's tennis, basketball, pickle ball, aérobic classes and much more.

You can't beat the location of our "home away from home!"

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

This condo is as lovely, if not better, than it looks in the photos. It is extremely well-equipped, clean and very comfortable - so comfortable that we extended our stay! The king size bed has a top of the range mattress which is superb. The air-con and ceiling fans were very efficient. The complex is quiet and the view from the condo of the pond with all its wildlife was very enjoyable. A good location with less than a 5 minute walk to the supermarket and there are several restaurants nearby (try the Outback Steakhouse - great food!). We had the pleasure of meeting the owners who were very helpful in suggesting things to do in the area. All in all a great stay and a real "home away from home". Thank you Nancy and George, hope we meet again.

Owner's Response: Hi Hazel and Glen, Thank you so much for the wonderful review; we are so glad that you fully enjoyed our ‘home away from home” and appreciated all that we have done to make our guests as comfortable as possible. We too, enjoyed getting to know you both; it’s always an added bonus, when we are around to meet our guests. We look forward to keeping in touch and who knows, maybe we’ll see you in Ireland. Next time you cross the ocean, we hope you’ll remember us! Let’s be in touch. All the best, Nancy and George

Shorewalk is a so conveniently located to everything. There is a Regal Cinema, Aldi, Publix, and plenty of restaurants. The accommodations were very comfortable. Nice place to come home to relax after condo hunting. Nancy couldn’t be nicer to work with. She is wonderful!!

Great location and clean well equipped unit

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay. Loved sitting on the porch in the afternoon and enjoyed the small holding pond with fountain. Unit had everything we needed. Beds were great. Sofas a bit soft but sat on some additional pillows to work that out. Looking forward to going again next year.

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

Great Place to Stay!!!

We have had the opportunity to stay in this condo many times over the last 7 years. The owners have taken such good care of it, with upgrades every year; we are always pleasantly surprised as we walk into the home!

The location is perfect, with grocery and clothes shopping a walk away and the beaches are so near. Anna Marie Island (Holmes Beach) is a 10 minute drive with Siesta Keys 25 to 30 minutes away and Lido Beach 15-20 minutes away. We love to hop in the car for a view of the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico, that too is just a 10 minute drive to a cafe on the beach, a perfect way to end the afternoon. If it’s movies you like, just walk across the street, you can even buy your tickets ahead of time and just come in as the movie is starting, your seats are reserved!

If you have children, like we do, there is mini golf down the street, tennis, basketball and pickle ball courts right on the property with 2 pools as well. Ringling Brothers Museum and Jungle Gardens is a short drive away.

There’s even a great aquarium in the area. What more can I say, we love it there! The condo has everything we needed to make our vacation easy and comfortable! It’s our go to place to stay when in FL. We’ve been told that it’s

an hour and a half from Disney, so we may make it down there again!

Ein schöner Urlaub in einem schönen Appartment

  • 5 of 5

Ein wirklich schönes, sauberes Appartement und alles hat funktioniert. Alle Ventilatoren, die in in allen Zimmern vorhanden sind. Die Klimaanlage hat das Schlafen angenehm gemacht. Die Küche ist echter Luxus und beinhaltet alles was man braucht. Wir durften Strand-Handtücher, Schirm und Stühle an den Strand mitnehmen.

Die Vorbereitung unserer Vermieter war perfekt, alles toll beschrieben, wie wir Check-in und Check-Out machen sollten. Wir haben es sehr gerne bewohnt.

In unmittelbarer Nähe ist das beste Steakhouse (outback) ever. Einkaufen ist sogar in Laufnähe möglich.
