Near the clubhouse there are barbecue facilities if you fancy getting a sizzler going one afternoon.

Good: well heated pools, lovely grounds, lots of wildlife including a Roseate Spoonbill - beautiful, excellent location within walking distance of several eateries, take out, supermarkets and a cinema.

Good: well heated pools, lovely grounds, lots of wildlife including a Roseate Spoonbill - beautiful, excellent location within walking distance of several eateries, take out, supermarkets and a cinema. Comfortable beds and lounge suite. Less good: accommodation was minimally resourced in the kitchen, only one dishwasher sachet, no laundry detergent, no washing up liquid For some reason we were given an accessible unit this meant the toilet was open to the bedroom causing privacy issues. We also had to pay a cleaning charge which our travel agent had not told us about. If you are interested in a stay at Shorewalk perhaps find a private renter who has upgraded the accommodation.

Let me note that I have stayed here before, but only dealt with condo owner, and everything went fine. This trip I booked through Travelocity and had to interact with the office. First issue…check-in is at 5. I understand that due to Covid-19 protocols, but office closes at 3? They really need to extend their office hours. We had no info on our unit, or what procedure was in place for us to check in “after hours” because no one answered the phone, or called us back to answer our questions. We took a chance and just showed up. There was an unlocked wide open key box outside the office filled with envelopes with your name on it. Inside the envelope was you key and directions to your room. This is not safe because anyone can grab one of your keys, and know where you are staying. The Room was clean, but definitely outdated. Master bathroom was nice though. Stay went ok until day 6 which is the day before my checkout. Office called and said I needed to come do my paperwork before 3pm? I did so, and they told me I needed to leave a $200 deposit? I was aware of a deposit, but this is the day before I leave, and I assumed they did this upon Check-in. She told me I should have come in the day after I got there when the office was open to do my paperwork…at their convenience of course! I filled out the page and then she said $250 deposit. When I questioned the price difference, she looked confused and said she never said $200. I didn’t have the energy to argue and just left. I was in town for my mother’s funeral, and the last thing I needed to do is their job. The $250 hold made my travel plans home difficult. I will not stay here again and do not recommend it due to their customer service. Read less

Stay here if you like socialism. Stay here if you like having to show your ‘papers’ to do anything (swim in the pool, play on the playground, use the tennis courts, or anything else). Stay here if you like having to make reservations for the amenities you paid to use (hot tubs, grills, basketball hoop, tennis court, pickle ball, clubhouse).… Read more
Stay here if you like socialism. Stay here if you like having to show your ‘papers’ to do anything (swim in the pool, play on the playground, use the tennis courts, or anything else). Stay here if you like having to make reservations for the amenities you paid to use (hot tubs, grills, basketball hoop, tennis court, pickle ball, clubhouse). Stay here if you don’t want to be able to bring a kids toy to the pool for your children. Don’t stay here if you want a normal vacation. The choice is yours, but I’ll be looking for a new vacation stay. Read less

I stayed from April 7 - 11 for my sons wedding, it was located near to the venue. It was clean but smelled like its been closed without any ventilation for a long time.

I stayed from April 7 - 11 for my sons wedding, it was located near to the venue. It was clean but smelled like its been closed without any ventilation for a long time. You know never opening up the place to air it out, like an older persons house And it was outdated needs to be updated. They didn't even provide those complimentary shampoo and condition only those small bars of soap - ONE in each bathroom. I didn't expect to be stocked but damn. Pillows were harder than I've slept on wasn't comfortable. Bed was ok The Information paper I received said to make sure all dishes were cleaned and all trash thrown out. Ok no problem. I go to check out. HERE IS WHERE I GOT PISSED OFF I was informed of an 85.00 dollar cleaning fee - which i was never told about when I checked in. It was on the site I used to book room of course fine print. My thing is if you are CHARGING a cleaning fee WHY DO I HAVE TO CLEAN AND THROW OUT THE TRASH Next time I'll make sure I read the fine print before booking. Doubt I'll stay again too bad cause it's in a good location Read less

I booked through the facility vs VRBO, etc. I had looked at other, similarly priced places via VRBO and the owners rejected my request, so I went back to Shorewalk. To be candid, it’s about what you should expect. Not in the least bit fancy, (keep in mind these units are individually owned so some might be more updated), there are a few minor… Read more
I booked through the facility vs VRBO, etc. I had looked at other, similarly priced places via VRBO and the owners rejected my request, so I went back to Shorewalk. To be candid, it’s about what you should expect. Not in the least bit fancy, (keep in mind these units are individually owned so some might be more updated), there are a few minor complaints you have to expect; e.g. in my unit, knives aren’t sharp, cooktop pans are worn and scratched Teflon (not good for your health!), toilet seats loose, kitchen wastebasket has no top and with no disposal, stinks after awhile, glass shower door doesn’t close completely, decor etc old....you get the picture. BUT, for the price I’m pretty sure it’d be a bit tough to find a better deal. For 33 days from near end of December to end of January I paid less than $100/day Read less
