Exactly what we were looking for!
Our family of 4 (mom, dad, 1 teen, & 1 tween) truly enjoyed Bradenton Beach! The condo at Shell Cove is tastefully decorated with soothing colors and has elegant beach motif. The linens were wonderfully comfortable and the kitchen was perfect. Everything we needed to cook with was available and the wine fridge was an added bonus (we kept sodas & water bottles in it for the kids, too). The entertainment system (TV/DVD) was high-end and were excellent for chilling out with a family movie night. We really didn't need to bring anything other than a swimsuit. Beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, and beach towels were all provided. The beach was quiet and relaxing. The fabulous sunsets over the ocean were breathtaking and the soft Gulf sand between our toes was therapeutic. We rented a boat for 1/2 day at Holmes Beach pier, which was a lot of fun. We took the very short drive up to the tip of Anna Maria Island and had ice cream at Two Scoops (yum!). Dolphins were swimming around the pier near sunset. This was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing vacations our family has spent together in years. We will definately be back.
