Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bed/2Baths, Sleeps 4; eat in kit, living & dining rm,Linai 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.

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 PICKLE BALL 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!"

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy, I/we can't tell you how much we've enjoyed our stay here. You could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We look forward to spring 2015. The location is perfect for doing just about anything. The apartment is comfortable and a real home away from home.

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.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home while my son was playing baseball in the area. The home was beautiful, well kept, and in a great location. The pool, basketball court and clubhouse area were lovely; lots to do without ever leaving the property! It was an easy drive to several beautiful beaches. Hope to stay here again when we're in the area!

Clean, comfy, convenient

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cozy "home away from home" condo. It was great to be on ground level so as to avoid the trips up and down stairs with luggage, groceries, etc. It was also nice to sit on the screened in porch and eat breakfast while watching the fountain, the fishermen, and the daily activities of the ducks. The condo is very conveniently located near grocery and other retail stores, as well as entertainment such as mini golf, bowling alley, movie theaters, and many beautiful beaches. There is much to see - we enjoyed the Ringling Brothers Museum and mansion, and lots of great restaurants- especially City Pier, Beach Cafe, and Yummy House Chinese ( such great food). Owners were very accommodating and attentive. We would defiantly recommend this rental to friends and family, and hope to return again some day for perhaps a longer stay.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property is centrally located and perfect! It's 10 minutes to sunsets at Gulf beaches! We've gone bike riding at Robinson preserves, 10 minutes away, or just hopped on the bikes to ride to GT Brey Park where we found hard tru tennis courts and pickleball courts, as well as a full recreational facility and it's only $20 a month! On this trip we took in an Orioles baseball game, just 26 mins from this lovely condo. We have also found a sweet venue for Cabarets and plays at the Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, 20 minutes away! Can't beat this location!

The condo has everything you need for your vacation and if you find that there is something left out, just call and request it and it's yours! Every time we show the condo to new acquaintances, they want to sign on the dotted line for their next stay in the area!
