The staff was friendly, and the grounds well maintained. I booked thru a 3rd party vendor, but had looked at all of the amenities listed on their website, and rules. Got to the condo's to check in, and found that they had rules not listed on the website. There are added fees that are not listed on the website, and they do not allow trailers to be parked on the property or allow motorcycles. I was on a 2 week trip and was pulling my trailer with my motorcycles inside. I had planned on riding part of Florida while there. I was told I needed for park my trailer at the grocery store two blocks away. Needless to say I did not sleep well or enjoy my stay due to stress and worry. I would have just moved to another hotel, but my reservation was non-refundable, so I would have lost $$$$. We stayed the 2 nights and nothing bad happened to my trailer,but I was worried it may get stolen (of which probably would a loss of over $25000.00) or towed of which I would be responsible for all damages. Free WiFi is very very slow. I will not return to this property again.
The staff was friendly but the condo was very cold, uninviting, old wicker furniture and outdated televisions. My mother had a poisoned rat sitting at her front door dying when we returned to the room
Loved the condo, plenty of space and well maintained. The complex was neat and clean. Has 2 pools and 2 hot tubs, tennis and basketball courts, and a clubhouse with activities. Very peaceful place. Short drive to several beaches and Anna Maria Island. Will definitely return!
We have stayed at Shorewalk once a year for several years. The condos are always clean, spacious, and quiet. They are well equipped with the dishes, coffee maker, etc., that we need. We couldn't have been happier!
This was our second vacation at Shorewalk Villas and this time it was for three weeks,its everything we want for a self catering accommodation and very central to all the shops and restraurants, and its only ten minutes from the beaches
The condo was very nice and roomy. Had a great Florida room that overlooked a pond. The complex was neat and clean. Has 2 pools and 2 hot tubs, tennis and basketball courts, and a clubhouse with activities. Very peaceful place. Will definitely return!
If I had read TripAdvisor reports on other Shorewalk properties we may not have chosen this property - fortunately this specific apartment has been re-modelled to a high standard and provided us with very spacious, clean and modern accommodation. Unit 103 is convenient to the pool and club house (although it doesn't offer much in the line of social activities). Shorewalk is convenient to all we needed in Bradenton - restaurants, supermarkets, shops and beaches (as long as you have a car). This apartment has a bedroom with 2 (UK) double beds with bathroom ensuite, a bedroom with a super king size bed which has an ensuite shower room. It also has a leather settee which converts into a (double?) bed and a camp bed (single) so there is potential to sleep 8/9 people (though some would ideally be children). It also has a cot. The apartment is well equipped with pool/beach towels and other useful bits and pieces. If I have anything negative to say about the apartment it would be that the air-con unit is a bit noisy if anyone is planning to sleep in the living room space but otherwise we would fully recommend this apartment.
Came to gate crash my parents 2nd week in Florida and stayed here. We all loved r. Great facilities: pool, grills, table tennis etc. Condo is beautiful, clean and spacious. The villas are really close to all beaches and keys. Good price and will definitely recommend this place to anyone. Hopefully will be back for a visit again soon.
Our unit was dirty. The kitchen floor was sticky and there was nothing to clean it with. The kitchen was poorly supplied. Something as basic as a potholder should be supplied, but no. The woman at the office to check in was not friendly. I reserved our unit a full 4 months before our visit in early April, with the request that we have a unit near our friends. We were on opposite sides of the complex! The complex itself is nice, but the staff and our particular unit were both very disappointing.
We booked a condo privately with the owner through Flipkey, and it was very tidy, clean, comfortable, wonderful views of the lake and wildlife and fully stocked kitchen. A real home from home. However, the whole Shorewalk complex left a lot to be desired. There is simply no atmosphere here. No Bar, no restaurant, even for snacks. No Wifi in club house/pool - $20 deposit to use anything - god forbid if we lost a ping pong ball. Wouldn't it be wonderful at the end of the day to meet up and socialise with other tenants/owners - clearly the management don't want this, and would rather all occupants retired to their own condo. Pool decking area is clearly lacking in seating, and shade - only 2 tables and umbrellas for one pool, the rest are loungers - not exactly family friendly. Rules for the Pool - No eating, no drinking, no floats, no jumping (really!! a pool that doesn't allow jumping in!!). I'm surprised we didn't get taken aside for splashing and noise, even when no-one else was in it. There should be a sign saying "Please relax but don't have fun"
