About Allen Keetch

Janice and Allen are an American and English couple, who have lived in Tampa, Florida for the last 18 years.

'We have always wanted to own a vacation property within close proximity to the beach and were introduced to Shorewalk by a friend of ours who has been staying here for years. We instantly fell in love with the location and the community'.

Allen Keetch purchased this condo in 2013

Why Allen Keetch chose Bradenton

We liked the property, not only because of its location to some of the best beaches in the world, and other nearby attractions, but because of its layout and great location within the Shorewalk community.

The condo is an end unit on the ground floor, quiet being set back from the road, whist within 2 minutes walking distance of all the amenities at Shorewalk, including the club house, pools and tennis courts, however far enough away to not to hear any noise.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is the perfect place to spend a fun and relaxing family vacation, or use for an extended stay. It's in the ideal spot and offers something for everyone to enjoy everyday.

We are committed to offering you a home away from home where you can relax, kickback and have fun. We have gone to great lengths to ensure you will have everything you need to enjoy your stay and take the perfect vacation.

Good, but opportunity to improve

  • 3 of 5

The community pool & hot tub as well as the surrounding areas were always clean as shown in the still pictures & video clip. Both were heated all the time which was great. Although we didn't use the other community facilities (pool table, etc.), we found them to be in good condition & clean. Very close to food stores & lots of golf courses. We had two areas of concern. When taking showers, the second person would run out of hot water about 1/2 way through & it was luke warm thereafter. The 3rd & 4th family members of the had to wait. Frustrating. Second, the thermostat was set at 74 and we were able to lower it to 72 (but not lower) temporarily after which it would jump back to 74. As someone who likes it at 70, this was frustrating & not noted in the ad. The main kingsize bed & the sofa bed were both of excellent quality however, I feel there's a misrepresentation in the pictures & video of the unit regarding the second bedroom. It says there are "two bathrooms with king sized beds" which really isn't accurate. Yes, there are 2 bathrooms, but the second bedroom has 2 small single beds and although you can push them together, it's not the same as a king bed as anyone who's tried to do so. You'll note in the video & the still pictures that there's isn't a clear view of the two singles. As for the "luxury condo" description, I'd revise to say it's a well maintained, exceptionally clean condo. While some furniture is of high quality, the cookware & silverware are the inexpensive quality you get at Walmart. Would we recommend? It depends. First, the water & AC issues would have to be addressed. Second, based upon what I know of the rental market in the area, I'd put this unit closer to the $90-$95/night rate.

Owner's Response: John thank you for your review. We were naturally very disappointed and sorry to hear about your concerns, especially as we focus on being client centric, rely heavily on guests returning and take feedback seriously. The issues you raised have not been raised before and its a shame you did not provide any of this feedback at start of or during your stay, giving us the opportunity to address same. With regards to the hot water, we have already checked with our current guests who have indicated that the hot water is OK. We will have our plumber check the system between guests. Naturally we appreciate the importance of adequate hot water and had we known we would have dispatched our plumber immediately, to invesigate and fix any issues found. The AC temperature is set the to a minimum temperature in the winter of 72, which is based on best practice. In the four years we have been renting our three vacation homes in Florida, we have never had a complaint and I would have been happy to make the adjustment for your stay, had you let me know. I am not sure I fully understand your comments or concerns about the second bedroom, but just for clarity the beds were made up in the second bedroom as two singles, as per your request. When they are made up as a king bed, the size is actually a little wider than a traditional king, albeit slightly shorter – the industry refers to the size as California King. We actually use a conversion kit to make the holistic bed seamless. Again it’s a shame you did not flag up your concerns regarding the bed at the beginning of your stay, when we communicated, because we could have changed the bed over to a California King if you no longer required single beds in this room. With regards to the cookware, and stainless steel silverware, it is from Bed Bath and Beyond and are the same brands that we use in our own home. We have never had any complaints before, and when anything gets worn it is replaced immediately. Whilst you may have been able to book somewhere a little cheaper, in peek season, we believe that we offer outstanding value for money and we know we are competitively priced. This unit is booked over 44 weeks of the year and we are currently ranked by VRBO number 80 out of the 7434 properties in our market, based on independent guest reviews. We hope our comments help and again we are sorry that you felt the experience did not measure up to expectations. All the best for 2018, Allen

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This condo won't disappoint. Everything was lovely, tastefully updated and clean. Very easy to find and convenient to grocery store, movie theater, restaurants and beach. The king bed in the master was so comfortable and it was great to have a full size washer and dryer. We loved the area and look forward to a future visit!

Excellent !!!

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife, children aged 8,11) stayed in the condo for almost two weeks in July 2017. Usually, condos look much better in pictures than in reality. This condo was in reality nicer than in the pictures. It was in fact modern and elegantly furnished, above the standard. You feel as if you are in an upscale resort.

We have stayed in Bradenton several times (Hidden Lake, Shorewalk..), but this condo was the best I’ve ever been in. The place provides everything you need.

This is what you call meeting customer needs. Allen is very flexible and prompt in his communication (response rate within minutes).

My niece joined us for couple of days, so we used the pull out sofa in living room, which was of high quality.

The location is very good (beaches 15min, 10 min to I75), Publix and restaurants are within the walking distance.

The place has a lovely view of the lake. My daughters enjoyed the wildlife, observing otters, turtles, and squirrels from patio.

Condo was spotlessly clean.

Towels for the bathroom and beach towels in large amounts were available as well as beach gear (toys, body board, cooler…)

Thanks for relaxing vacation.
