Stayed at Shorewalk many times as we love being able to walk to places. Very handy for AMI too. Condo was clean, pleasantly furnished and comfortable. Had a couple of minor issues which were sorted promptly and pleasantly. Our only negative would be the limited beach furniture and beach towels.

Management response:

Thank you for your review. We provide at least two folding beach chairs, and I think that there may have been three when you were there, but they wear out quicker than most items. We could go to four, but they take up room on the lanei, which is the sensible place to store them. There are four beach towels....

About the neighbourhood
Bradenton, home to the South Florida Museum, is a busy and friendly residential town. Cortez Road abounds with restaurants, many of them serving wonderful seafood. Anna Maria Island is 10 minutes drive away, maybe a little longer if the drawbridge is up to let boats pass. We love going to Coquina Beach, or to Manatee Beach where you can park close to the Cafe most days. The food is good, the coffee ad lib and there is usually a singer around dusk. Great place to watch the sun set over the Gulf. <BR><BR>Sarasota, twelve miles south of Bradenton, has some excellent cultural venues: the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, and the Asolo Theatre are recommended. Sarasota was the winter home of the Ringling Circus, and John & Mabel Ringling built a spectacular home, Ca D'Z... more

How to get there
Airport: TPA - Tampa International Airport: 76.0 km
Sarasota/Bradenton Airport is the nearest airport, but it may be more convenient to fly to Tampa depending on your point of origin. From UK:
Fly BA Gatwick to Tampa; pick up and return car at Tampa airport. (NB you can fly to Sarasota/Bradenton airport, but you will need to change at e.g. Atlanta.) Local: Drive south on I275 over Sunshine Skyway Bridge ($1 toll). At junction 2, take US41 Tamiami Trail south (turn right). About 7 miles south of junction, US41 bends right (west). When it turns left at lights towards Sarasota, continue west on Cortez Road W (SR684) towards beaches. Turn left on 43rd Street W. Do NOT turn right at the Shorewalk sign, but take the next right onto 47th Ave W. Turn right into the last courtyard.
