We were planning a trip for business and pleasure to Bradenton the middle of April. I booked a condo for our week stay in Bradenton. We were pleasantly surprised to find the condo had been totally renovated. The flooring looked new, the walls were freshly painted, the bathrooms had new vanities and the shower had new tile. The furniture looked new as well. The kitchen was completely stocked with silver ware, dishes, coffee cups, glasses, including wine glasses, pots and pans and there was a crock pot. New fridge, dishwasher, stove and microwave looked to be new. There was stackable washer and dryer that looked new. We did not use the washer or dryer. There was a seating area off the kitchen with coffee maker. The master bedroom was large with a king size bed that was quite comfortable, and it's own bathroom with shower. There was also a large tv in the bedroom, the other bedroom was smaller but had it's own tv and bath room across the hall. The living area had a large round table with chairs, and a pass through from the kitchen for easy serving of food. The seating area had a sofa and love seat with a large screen tv, coffee table and end tables with lamps. There were ceiling fans in each room. There was a covered porch that was screened with a table and four chairs, very nice for morning coffee. The condo was decorated with accessories like you would use if you were staging the unit for sell. The condo was very nice!! We were not near the clubhouse or swimming pool or other amenities but that was not an issue for us. If being near the pool, tennis courts, barbecue area is important you need to ask for a unit near those facilities, as there was no place outside our unit to barbecue. There were 6 passes for the swimming pool in the unit, since the rental capacity for this condo was 6 people in the unit, so no need to ask for passes. We were close to the main roads and within 10 to 15 minutes of beaches. There was a large Publix grocery store very close by which has everything anyone would need in the way of food, deli items, bakery, drinks, and they have a pharmacy. There was also a CVS pharmacy across the street from the grocery store as well as several restaurants. We were very pleased with the Condo and the location. We would definitely rent this condo again.

I have been at Shorewalk a couple times in the recent years and I like to overall experience of it a lot. It is very close to the beach, a lot of dining places and other amenities like shops, cinema, bowling place. It has on-site pool, 2 tennis courts, BBQ grilles and a club house with a billard table. Since the units are mostly owned by individuals the furniture and equipment can differ in between the units, ours was relatively fresh updated with an open kitchen area, new laminate flooring and furniture. Check in has to be done ba 5pm, otherwise there is a letter box at the office to pick up the envelope with your keys and instructions. This could be reconsidered since it is not fail-safe, but it´s kind of "ok" for my liking. Read less

A nice property with easy access to grocery and other retail stores. The two swimming pools are well maintained and the rules governing them are enforced. Also on the property are tennis/basketball courts, two hot tubs, shuffleboard and bocci. Everything was great in my condo as all appliances were in good working order. The TV was confusing and I couldn’t find any info on channels or operation of the TV. Having a bike would be a great asset as there are paved pathways throughout. For those without transportation, be prepared to walk a lot. Layout of this property is confusing so be sure to obtain a map. Office hours run from 8:30 - 3:30 so if you have issues don’t wait. In my opinion, these hours require reconsideration. Response to maintenance issues appears very prompt. I enjoyed my two week stay and would happily return. As a side note, local transportation is quite good and seniors get substantial discounts. I recommend using the buses at least once. Read less

We booked this condo through VRBO and have had no issues with the owner. This review is specifically for the Shorewalk staff.

We booked this condo through VRBO and have had no issues with the owner. This review is specifically for the Shorewalk staff. We were given one pool pass by the owner and had been using it for several days for the three of us. We were kicked out of the pool on our third day because they claimed we needed a pool pass for each person. Ok, no problem except they will not give us a way to obtain other passes. I’m still confused as to why we are being punished when we paid to be here and use the pools. The staff is extremely rude and unhelpful if you do not book directly through them. We have stayed here multiple times and will not be back after how we were treated. Read less

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.
