|Minimum Stay||7 - 14 nights|
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 several years ago as we stayed there while our daughter attended the Bollettieri Tennis Academy, just down the road. Perfect location!
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!"
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.
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.
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!
This was a great condo with a great location! Nancy was extremely helpful and very responsive with all of my inquiries! We highly recommend this property!
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!
We found everything we were looking for. Upscale accommodations for 4 with access to a pool, within easy walking distance to local restaurants and pubs and not too far from the beaches. The Shorewalk complex is well located right off of Cortez Rd. The condo is just right for four adults and has been recently up dated. Nancy is responsive and helpfull. That said, I am a little confused by some of the association rules. But I wouldn't let that stop me from staying there again.
We had a wonderful stay, Nancy has supplied everything in the condo you could possible need. You can walk to supermarket & restaurants. There is only 10 minute drive to the beach. We shall definitely be returning.
