About The Owner

Neil and Caroline Halfacre emigrated from London, England 15 years ago looking for the American dream. We found it here in Bradenton, Florida. We purchased our Shorewalk condo 7 years ago and have had many happy times there with our children Ruby and Charlie. What we like most is the safe atmosphere of Shorewalk and the fact that you can park your car and walk everywhere. Shops, restaurants, movie theatre, bowling alley and all the facilities of Shorewalk Resort.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose Florida South West

Neil and Caroline chose to buy a condo in this location for the use of ourselves and our families from overseas because of the great location and all the amenities. We hope that you too can enjoy it as much as we have over the years

What makes this condo unique

For either dining out or dining in our condo has a full kitchen for your use. All towels and linens are of good quality and all appliances are in 1st class condition.

A fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Bradenton for 7 years now and have spent the last 4 years staying in this lovely apartment. We are so pleased to have the opportunity to write a review on this apartment, to be able to share with you what a marvellous place it is.

The APARTMENT itself is very accurately described on the website, with a well equipped kitchen/living area, two lovely sized bedrooms and even a walk in closet. Whilst admittedly there are only the 2 of us when we stay, it is so spacious that it could happily house a family of 6. Having your very own washer/dryer is also a real bonus - so many places we have stayed have had communal facilities.

The FACILITIES at Shorewalk are brilliant too - 2 pools to chose from and a tennis court to name a few. The landscaped gardens make the whole place a very relaxed place with loads of wildlife to watch from the balcony or catch up with on the way to the pool.

The LOCATION is so versatile with the fantastic beaches of Anna Maria just a 10 minute drive one way and the Prime Outlets (shopping mall) at Ellenton only 20 minutes the other. The numerous theme parks in Orlando are also a comfortable daily drive (approx 1 ½ hours each way). Bradenton itself is such a friendly place with everything you could wish for. And if you don’t want to drive then there’s always the Cinema, Supermarket and local restaurants to enjoy on foot. So whatever takes your fancy, all is in reach.

The OWNERS Caroline & Neil have become dear friends over the years and they are very special people. They are very hands on and nothing is too much trouble. As they live locally too it’s reassuring to know that they are never far away if any problems arise.

We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this apartment to any one and are so pleased that Caroline & Neil have decided to put in on VRBO so we can show all our friends how marvellous it is. It is the best place to stay and we love it so much we would live here, if we could! – we’ll be back very soon!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great stay at this Condo, miss it already.

Its very central and near the beaches.

The owners were very helpful and provided a list of attractions including the best places to eat from Breakfast to Dinner. Very convenient for restaurants, the beach, movie theatre and stores.

We watched the sun rise in the morning and the sun set at the Beachhouse restaurant. The weather has been very good, so much so we have booked the Condo up for a longer stay next year.

A another glorious six week stay !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the middle of October for our third 6 week stay in this lovely comfortable well equipped apartment, which now feels home from home.

The owners ,Neil and Caroline, always check within a short time to see if everything is satisfactory.....It always is !!

It was a joy in the morning to wake and see from the bedroom the sun rise over the lake .

The weather was perfect we only had an occasional short shower throughout the 6 week stay.

The swimming pools and the hot tub near the club house is only 2 minutes away.

We spent a lot of time there , soaking up the sun and reading books and relaxing .

The restaurants are just a short walk from the apartment ....

Applebees has good food and pleasant staff. There is also a nice Thai restaurant and a steak house.

Two supermarkets are very convenient and again within walking distance

Thanks again Neil and Caroline we are looking forward to our next visit.

Perfect Condo, Gracious Host

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and we couldn't have been happier with Neil and his condo. The accomodations were very nice. No complaints whatsoever. When we come back down, we will definitely contact Neil.
