“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

went on a family holiday so we were looking for big space for 4 of us. Changed hotels a few time just to try it out as we will be visiting back quite often. This place is found to be incredibly Great value. 2 bedrooms, living room, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen- about 100sqm in total it's simply brilliant. The standard was really good for the price. Clean and big. However, the downside was that the internet was down and it apparently had been down for a long while (I don't know if it is fixed now) but it was rather frustrating having to go to clubhouse in order to get internet and it shut at 9pm! The other is the bed was very bouncy! not good quality bed- you'd sink in it and the pillow was not comfy at all. I got my own pillow (not bought for this purpose but it surely helped) so it was ok overall. But I insist if you're looking for a cheap holiday but a better value place to stay then this is the place to be.

Room Tip: If you have any special request for the room (i.e.downstairs/upstairs) ask prior to reservation. The...

Returned to Shorewalk after a 2 year absence, had forgotten why we love staying here. Grounds are impeccably kept, deck area around the smaller of the two pools has been completely replaced, the clubhouse revovation has been completed to such a high standard it is actually "too good" a job!!
Wi-fi works well in and around the cluibhouse pool area, shame not offered as a freebie in the apartment.
Apartment was clean, plenty of space to spread out, had our daughter and her friend (aged 23) with us so they had one end of the apartment really and we had the other, never the twain shall meet, which suited everyone.
Easy stroll to the pools and tennis court no matter where the apartment situated. Nice and quiet as well. Also, a gentle stroll of an evening to Applebee's and the several other bars and restaurants nearby, a godsend not to have to get in the car.
A five mile simple drive out to the fantastic beaches on Anna Maria Island.
Even got in a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game this time, just a 40 minute drive away.
Roll on next time, will not leave it 2 years before we head back to Shorewalk again.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have a lake view, five lakes in the grounds altogether.

Just back after an enjoyable two weeks at Shorewalk, The apartment was very clean on arrival & we were impressed with the amount of space. Walk in wardrobe was a luxury as was 2 bathrooms. Plenty of towels & a change of linen was provided.
The pools were great. Clean & always plenty of sunbeds. As we stayed in the hot season, shade in the afternoon was appreciated & very necessary. The pool nearer the clubhouse was shady in the morning. However, with so many places to visit in the area, you had to explore. Busch gdns is within an hour & the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria are just 10 minutes away. Publix, restaurants & Walmart are minutes away, even within walking distance depending on the weather.
All in all, a very good base to explore this area of Florida.

Room Tip: We had a condo near the office which was rather dark because of trees so I would recommend requestin...

No doubt about it, this is a good value for all that it offers. The 2 bedroom, 2bath condo was clean and comfortable. Easy access to pools, tennis and clubhouse. While they did have WiFi at the clubhouse, it was not available in the condos while we were there. If I were on vacation, I would not have cared about internet access. Rudy was prepared for our arrival, kind, friendly and thorough. We chose Shorewalk based on reviews and value. We needed two bedrooms, and having the 2 baths was a plus as was having the living room. We were initially concerned as we were close to the pools, but it was very quiet. Since it was a short stay, we figured how bad could the place be? We were pleasantly surprised by the whole setup. This place is great for multiple families traveling together and family vacation/reunions because it's such a great setup and price. You can walk to the store, grocery, drugstore, etc. from this location. It's across the street from the Holiday Inn off Cortez (a main road with an abundance of stores). The condos are a short drive to Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key beaches and restaurants.

Traveled with a group - booked several condos and the folks at Shorewalk were great to work with. This place is a great deal, you get a lot of bang-for-the-buck. Some units are little outdated, but, who cares? They are kept clean and have everything you need for a comfortable and convenient stay. The place is well run and the grounds are well maintained. See you next year.

The place was very clean. It was near everything. The beaches were beautiful. The staff at the front desk was very friendly. I loved everything about the place. I definetly recommend this place.
I am a very picky person and this place covered all my expectation at a very affordable price.

Condo was clean, bleach clean! Yes, some things like the tvs were outdated, and you had to specifically ask for a hairdryer, but clean is all that mattered to me and it was clean! They had left a couple small items off the checklist but one call that was corrected. Only had small problems. Smokers, the few of us left, must smoke on patio, which is ok, except the glass sliding door (yes I removed the wood) was nearly impossible to open due to tracking issue. Here is where things get strange. They require 2 night minimum. Ok that's fair enough, we did the 2 nights and wanted to stay a 3rd night. However, they demanded we check out, and rebook, and by doing that you must rebook 2 night minimum. Instead of just tacking on the 3rd day. They said we can keep the same room, so it wasn't about availabilty it was just paperwork. The idea of being forced to stay a 4th day just because of paperwork seemed silly to me. I will certainly return but for next time we know what to expect. They advertise free internet but there was no internet. Remember you're near a pond so the mosquitos are bad, not their fault but might want to bring some spray for that.
