The Shorewalk Complex is located along Cortez Avenue, the 'main-drag' in Bradenton. Sarasota Bradenton Airport is 15 miles from Shorewalk and Tampa International Airport is about 50 miles away. Ellenton Prime Outlet Mall is a 20 minute drive up I-75 N. Thrill seekers can enjoy Busch Gardens in Tampa and the world famous Disney World is only a two hour drive away in Orlando. And of course we need to mention the beaches nearby! Take a five minute drive west and you'll hit Anna Maria Island and its beautiful white sand beaches. There are many areas to park and enjoy a day sunbathing, walking in the sand, listening to the waves and seagulls, playing in the gulf, building sandcastles or just simply relaxing! Shops and restaurants are also nearby in many areas on the island.
Shorewalk itself has many amenities to offer. There are two swimming pools, two hot tubs, two lighted tennis courts, a basketball half-court, shuffleboard, bocce ball, a playground for the younger kids, fishing in six stocked lakes and lighted sidewalks along tree lined streets on about 30 acres. The on site clubhouse provides BBQ grills, ping pong, a billiard room, a library, games and puzzles, wi-fi for internet and a TV room with videos all for guests to use. Some items in the clubhouse may require a deposit such as BBQ tongs and the deposit is refunded upon return of the item used.
For added convenience there are several stores nearby all within walking distance. These include a Publix grocery store and pharmacy, 24-hour Walmart, CVS pharmacy, Applebees, Outback Steakhouse, Little Caesars's and Papa Johns Pizza and Subway. There is also an 8-screen movie theatre, fitness center, beauty salon and day spa, martini bar, bowling alley and much more also within walking distance.

This is a sports center where many world-class athletes have trained for tennis or soccer.
There are several day trips to take within a short driving distance. Myakka State Park is a great place to hike or kayak...and see alligators close up! Mote Aquarium is the place to go to see some real live manatees, the namesake of the county Bradenton is in. St Armand's Circle is a straight shot down the gulf coast and has many unique art and clothing shops and restaurants offering many different varieties of food for any palette. If you like to gamble, Sarasota Kennel Club is a fun way to spend an evening either betting on the greyhounds or playing poker. Sarasota was the winter home of the Ringling family known for their famous circus. There is a Ringling museum, library, botanical garden and estate to wander through as well as a nice restaurant and gift shop. Downtown Sarasota offers many diverse shops, eating establishments and nightclubs and there's usually something fun going on there every weekend.

Booked originally for 2 weeks - ended up being able to stay a few more days. The owners were very responsive and flexible, from the time we first requested the rental to getting our damage deposit returned! Very convenient location - walking distance to a major grocery store (Publix) and restaurants, along with a 15 min drive to Anna Marie Island and the beach. Nicely decorated, plenty of space with nice screened-in porch. Internet and cable, washer and dryer, all worked well. Would definitely book again!
We rent this unit for christmas. Everything was perfect! Everything was very clean.
Shorewalk is a very nice place to go. Pools,spas, tennis courts etc...
In fact, I go there every year and this Condo is the best that I rented!
Internet was very fast! But who really needs internet when you are in vacation???!!! There is si much to do In shorewalk!
I cannot wait to go back there!!!!
Perfect location. Very clean condo. Clean beds and bathrooms. Totally satisfied. If I can add a comment, the Wi-Fi connection could be faster... I was unable to download the newspaper without going to the Club House. That's the only point I have to mention. Our vacations was perfect there.
My husband and I stayed at this Shorewalk condo 2 weeks ago. The condo is clean and well kept with comfortable furniture and bedding. It is very close to stores such as Publix grocery, CVS, etc. It was a good location for going to Bradenton Beach as well as Sarasota. The onsite pools and hot tubs are nice and are open until 11:00 PM, which was great.
The internet was the absolute slowest I have experienced since my dial-up days. It took forever to load in any page, and could not support even viewing a youtube video. It was a constant frustration.
We were disappointed to find that there was no hand soap,only enough toilet paper for 2 days, and only ONE garbage bag. So what are we supposed to do- go buy a box of 30 trash bags so we can have one or 2 more? Am I supposed to go buy a 4 pack of toilet paper so I can have 1 roll to get me through the rest of the week? How about dish detergent, etc. Upon contacting the owners, they responded 3 days later(which was the evening after we had checked out) in saying that it was not their responsibility to provide these items. They said there is usually hand soap but don't feel obligated to provide anything else.
In all of our years of renting we have never come across this approach. Again, the condo is fine, just beware that you need to shop for all basic supplies if you rent this condo.
Our stay at Shorewalk condo was wonderful. The condo was large, beautifully decorated, well equipped, close to restaurants and shopping, and had a wonderful pool and grounds. I would recommend this condo to anyone. The owner was very helpful with all questions and concerns. Our only concern was the unavailability of a telephone. Thankfully we did have our cell phone with us, but a lot of seniors don't use one. Hopefully we will be able to return again this year, family commitments permitting.
