1250 Sq Ft Condo, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Overlooking Lovely Lake
Shorewalk was built around 30 years ago when ample space and quality were just as important as profit. The spacious grounds and mature trees are meticulously kept and give an air of peace and tranquility hard to find in more modern resorts. The location is ideal, close to IMG, beaches, shops, supermarkets, restaurants, golf courses, cinema and bowling. Facilities include two heated swimming pools, each with a separate Whirlpool spa, two lighted tennis courts, table tennis. The six lakes are stocked with fish, and the clubhouse has billiards/pool tables, and library, nearby table tennis, childrens' playground, and outside grills for bbq's.
Our condo is an upstairs unit with cathedral-style ceiling making it light, bright and airy. Master bedroom has kingsize bed and en-suite bathroom and guest bedroom has twin beds and separate bathroom. The views are better upstairs, it is more private than the ground floor and with no worries about someone clumping round above your head, especially at night. The lanai looks out across the nicest lake in Shorewalk, and turtles, ducks, geese, herons, egrets, and roseate spoonbills are all frequent visitors.
It has been redecorated throughout, renovated and updated. At the end of 2013 we replaced the vinyl with ceramic tiles in the bathrooms, kitchen, hallways and lanai. The living and dining areas have new carpet as have both bedrooms, making it more homely than ceramic and, actually, easier to keep clean. The kitchen units and counter tops are brand new along with a new range with ceramic hob, wall-mounted microwave oven, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. The master bedroom has new king-size bed, pillow top mattress, new bedroom suite, and 32 inch flat screen tv. The guest bedroom has new twin beds and mattresses. Both bathrooms have new vanity units and all fittings and furnishings are of good quality.
We have new comfy sofas and an elegant dining set and the living room has a new 42 inch HD SMART tv. Brighthouse provides hundreds of tv channels, high-speed wireless internet and free phone calls throughout USA and Canada.
It's only a few minutes walk to Publix and Aldi supermarkets, shops, stores, restaurants, bars, hairdressers, dry cleaners, cinema and bowling alley. Our favourite beach is on Anna Marie Island which is less than fifteen minutes drive as is Longboat Key with the famous shopping area, St Armands Circle.
My wife and I are very proud of our re-modelled condo and hope you will enjoy staying there as much as we do.

About Edwin and Pearl Coombes
My wife and I were owner/managers of a small vacation resort in the south of France for over twenty years from which we have now retired, although we still live there much of the year. We built up a very loyal clientele, many of whom are still our friends. We feel that this experience has helped us to offer a very special condo which we hope you will want to visit time and time again, and we promise to do everything in our power to make your visits as happy, memorable, and worry-free as humanly possible.
Edwin and Pearl Coombes purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Edwin and Pearl Coombes chose Bradenton
My wife and I had our first vacation at Shorewalk in 1998 and were frequent visitors until we bought in 2004. We have been to many similar resorts in the USA and elswhere around the world but none could match the combination of location, facilities, environment, ambiance and value that Shorewalk offers. We really liked this particular condo due to its ideal location, close to the pools, tennis courts and clubhouse but far enough away not to be disturbed by them. It also enjoys the evening sun and lovely views across the lake. We knew it was for sale and on one visit we were sitting in the lanai, sipping a glass of wine as the last rays of the evening sun slid across the lake and set the sky on fire, producing one of the most memorable sunsets we have ever seen. We watched, enchanted, as the ducks flew home to roost across the scarlet lake, poured another glass of wine (us, not the ducks !) and decided to buy there and then. We were hooked, and have been ever since.

Shorewalk Vacation Villas VRBO
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shorewalk February 2018. Our condo was very nice and spacious. Very clean and quiet. To our surprise, it was completely furnished with everything needed for our enjoyment. We especially enjoyed spending every morning out on the screened in veranda watching the wildlife in the pond behind our unit. The grounds were well kept and clean. Everything was close by and the beaches were just a few miles away. We enjoyed using both pools just a short walk away. We also picked a good time to visit as we had a stretch of three weeks with no rain and record warm temperatures. Loved it! We want to thank Edwin and Pearl for everything.
Thanks so much for your review, we always appreciate the effort. Also glad you enjoyed sitting out in the lanai watching the ducks, egrets and other wildlife because we love it too as it's so relaxing. Hope to see you another year.
Very best wishes,
Edwin & Pearl
Comfortable, Clean, and Convenient
Edwin was a fantastic host with super fast responses to any inquiry. Exactly as described and great amenities. The pool and spa were steps away. The beachs were a very short drive. Great selection of restaurants and a Publix within walking distance. Often when we travel properties have minimal internet service, but not here. Faster than what we have at home. A great value and we would definitely stay here again.
Thanks for that great review. We are delighted you had a great stay an d hope that the weather was kind. We always appreciate a review and are grateful for the effort in writing it.
Hope you got plenty of cycling in during your stay and look forward to having you as our guests at some future point.
Keep turning those wheels.

Beautiful, Clean and Charming
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Edwin and Pearl's condo. They were great with communicating with us. The condo was beautiful and much more spacious than we expected. Everything we needed was provided. Lots of shops and restaurants close by. We spent lots of time in Anna Maria, Bradenton, Sarasota and Siesta Key. This was a perfect location to visit all the best spots. An information guide was prepared for everything we needed to know about the condo and our stay. We are very thankful for the opportunity to rent this condo during our Florida holiday.
thanks so much for your excellent review. We really do appreciate you taking the trouble to do so. I did post a reply but don’t know why it didn’t show up. 25 years of using computers and I still can’t get it right. Anyway , we were delighted to have you as guests and hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the future.
Very best wishes,
Edwin & Pearl
A home away from home.
Thank you Edwin for being so accommodating. Your home was wonderful to come back to after a long day of exploring the beautiful beaches in the area. It was well kept and clean. There were plenty of towels and linens. The kitchen was well stock with pots, pans and utensils.
If we have the opportunity to come back to the area, we will certainly want to come and stay at your home again.
Thanks so much for your kind words. I really do appreciate you taking the time to write a review.
Hope to have you stay again some time in the future.
Very best wishes,
Loved this Condo and the owners !!
I did a lot of research on the condo's in the Shore walk and this condo from the pictures just seemed so comforting and once I communicated with the owners it was a no brainer. Because I have a special needs child I had many questions and the owners answered all questions and were so kind. They also had everything we needed when we arrived and the extras made a hugh impact (toys for the pool, chairs & toys for the beach, umbrellas.... beach towels and so on ! We didn't have to run out the minute we arrived for items and we were asked to replace only the items we used...toilet paper, soap, dish soap and so on. Plus shopping...restaurants were right down the street and the beach was literally 10 minutes away with a ton of shops and water activities. We were there for a baseball tournament and other families stayed in the Shorewalks - best place for the boys to hang out at the pool and the club house - they loved the basketball court - very safe & friendly place for them to hang together. Meeting by the pool and having a BBQ almost every night was so relaxing. THIS PLACE WAS VERY VERY VERY CLEAN AND I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THE MASTER BEDROOM - THE BED WAS SOOO COMFORTABLE !!! I would stay here in a heart beat again ! Thank you to the owners for great vacation place and for being so kind !! Thank you again - the Granata Family !
Hi Rich and Dawn,

Very best wishes, Edwin & Pearl
