About the property

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 for fishing, 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 Florida South West

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.

Perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo and the communication with Edwin was excellent. The apartment is just as the photos show. Clean, tidy and very comfortable. Especially the bed in the master bedroom which was the most amazing bed I have ever slept on! Didn't want to get up in the mornings which is great when you are on holiday. (Nothing worse than an uncomfortable bed!)

With regard to facilities, there was nothing there that we needed and wasn't provided. The location was spot on. Close to lots of restaurants, the beach, supermarkets etc. The condo itself was close to the communal pool which did get busy but never too busy that you didn't have a choice of plenty of sun loungers. We had good weather whilst we were there and the pool was a little too warm but it was Florida in August so that is being exceptionally picky. All in all I would definitely recommend this condo if you are staying in Bradenton. You would be hard pressed to find something better.

Owner's Response: Hi Katie, Thanks so much for this generous review. Sorry for the delay in responding but I don't look at them very often so didn't realise you had sent one. Pearl and I are so glad you had a great vacation. I know when we go away the accommodation is very important so we try hard to make ours as good as it can possibly be. It's very satisfying to know that we've done it right. We look forward to welcoming you again at some future date. Very best wishes to you and your family, Edwin & Pearl

The perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

I was a 34 year Bradenton native before I moved out of state. and my children and I now visit at least once a year. During our 12 day stay in Bradenton this summer, we had the opportunity to stay in two different condos in Shorewalk. Not only is this my favorite of the two, this would also be my pick above any other place we have stayed in the years that I've been returning as a visitor, including condos on the island. This condo is beautifully furnished, well stocked, and the bed in the master bedroom is the most comfortable I've ever slept on anywhere, including my own home. It is such a convenient location to the beaches, theme parks, neighboring towns, restaurants, and other areas without the hassle of the beach traffic on the days you don't want to be there. The owners were exceptionally kind regarding our dates and stay, and I just can't recommend them highly enough. This will be my go-to place to stay any time I am in town and they have availability, without question. Thank you for everything Mr. & Mrs. Coombes.

We stayed here again for 3 weeks and would highly recommend this condo.

Very clean, great views of the lake and lovely furnishings.

We love Florida and as we have friends in Sarasota this is our ideal location.

Ideal for walking to local restaurants, supermarkets and bowling.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this condo and we can't say enough nice things about the condo and it owners, Edwin and Pearl Coombs. It is very neat and clean and has everything you might need for a wonderful vacation! It is close to everything you might want to do, stores, movie theaters , shopping and beaches. There is a great view of the lake and watching the birds and turtles while having coffee or wine on the lani. The condo is well equipped, furniture is nice and comfy as well as the beds. The owners are very accommodating and trustworthy people. You won't be disappointed in this rental.

We were not disappointed with the condo. The accommodations and location of the condo were perfect for a no stress vacation. The condo is clean, well maintained and close to the pools and tennis courts in the complex. A short drive to shopping, movie theatre, restaurants and Anna Maria Island and it's lovely beaches. People in the complex were very friendly. The owners are honest and very accommodating especially when working out rental dates. I totally agree with Sherry R's review and anyone renting this condo will not be disappointed. I would definitely rent this condo again.
