Turtle Cove is one of the nicest condos in Shorewalk! Only 5 miles to Gulf of Mexico beaches. Our 1270 sq. ft. villa has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and sleeps 4-5 people. This beautiful professionally decorated villa, a comfortable ground floor end unit in the Shorewalk Resort complex, overlooks a tranquil lake where turtles bask in the sun. The location is peaceful and quiet.

There is nothing quite as relaxing as sitting on the lanai at Turtle Cove and enjoying the breezes, tropical birds, and turtles.

The living/dining area and the lanai are so comfortable and cozy that you will never want to leave. Attractive tropical ceiling fans in living room and master bedroom create a cool breeze.

There are 3 flat screen TVs - in the living room and both bedrooms - and built-in DVD players in both the living room and the master bedroom.

The master bedroom suite has a king-size bed, spacious walk-in closet, fully equipped desk with another phone and answering machine and an en suite bathing area.

The guest bedroom has two twin beds and a separate bathroom.

TURTLE COVE has handicap “grab” bars in both the master bathroom shower and the guest bathroom bathtub. The villa has free WiFi (wireless internet) and free phone service to U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.

This villa is managed by Fran Maxon Real Estate, Anna Maria, Florida

Sorry, no smoking.

No pets, boats, trailers, RVs OR jet skis are allowed at Shorewalk.

*****Five Stars*****

This is our second year with Marilyn and we look forward to many more. Marilyn is an outstanding hostess, nothing is too much trouble. She will go to any lengths to make her guests feel "at home." Marilyn's condo is in a great location, is very well equipped and most comfortable and is certainly a home away from home. We love being her guests.

A Beautiful, Relaxing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful villa. The condo was exceptionally clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. Arrival and departure was seamless and easy, and having all the conveniences of home made it a great stay for us. The convenience to the beach was perfect, and luckily we enjoyed perfect weather. We definitely recommend this condo to anyone planning Florida trip...and we plan to book again soon!

A "Five Star" Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice. It was updated, very clean, and the decor was lovely. It was exactly as advertised. The grounds and lakes at Shorewalk were very well kept, quiet, and very family friendly, with many activities available - and close to everything. We felt right at home. We loved the nearby beaches on Anna Maria Island, the fishing, and the restaurants. We will definitely come back and we will be staying in this condo again.

We have spent three vacations at this location. It is a first floor end unit with easy access for adults and children. Parking is ideal and the closeness to the pool, hot tub and clubhouse is great. There is a wonderful view of a pond from the dining room table and the outdoor screened patio. It is fun to watch the wildlife. The owner recently upgraded some of the furniture so that it is very comfortable. We often have one of our sons and family visit and they too enjoy the location. The beaches are just a short distance away and there are nice restaurants and shopping nearby. We highly recommend this unit and are looking forward to many more years there. MICHIGAN SNOWBIRDS

Shorewalk Resort

The Shorewalk Resort Complex is located near the Gulf of Mexico, Longboat Key, Anna Maria Island, and the beaches. Covering an expanse of 30 acres, Shorewalk is the perfect place to take peaceful nature walks. The complex also has two heated swimming pools, two hot tubs, two tennis courts, a basketball court, shuffleboard, horseshoe pits, and a clubhouse with ping pong, a large TV, free WiFi, and other amenities. The newly remodeled clubhouse also lends free equipment. You can enjoy “catch & release” in one of the resort's 6 stocked lakes.

Location & Activities

There’s plenty to do in Bradenton. Its proximity to Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key makes it the perfect place to stay for those who enjoy spending their days on the miles of white, sand beaches. Aside from the beaches, visitors will find a vibrant downtown with restaurants, galleries and boutiques along with the South Florida Museum, a planetarium, science and natural history exhibits, as well as the Mote Marine Labs & Aquarium, where visitors can view exotic fish and explore a hands-on tank where they can pick up starfish and pet sting rays.

Visitors can shop and explore Village of the Arts, a working artists’ community, or check out Emerson Point Preserve archaeological site and Gamble Plantation (once a working antebellum sugar plantation), and the historic fishing village of Cortez. St. Armands Circle is a must-do for shoppers who can browse clothing boutiques and enjoy the fine dining. Also, just off of I-75, Ellenton Premium Outlets – with scores of stores including Saks OFF 5th, COACH Factory, and more – is another place for shopping. The Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex, near the outlet mall, offers a fun way to get out of the sun. Bradenton is also home to the prestigious IMG sports academy.

Within walking distance Publix supermarket, Aldi grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, 8-screen movie theater, shopping, bank, AMF bowling alleys
