About the property

We offer an apartment with approx 116 m² in a well-maintained complex in an attractive holiday resort in Bradenton. From the resort it is about a 10 minutes drive to Bradenton beach at the Gulf coast. Since the resot is in a quiet area, you can relax very well. The apartment itself is located on the first floor (AE second floor) and due to a high ceiling it offers a lot of space. After a hot day you will find cool rest and relaxation sitting on the balcony viewing palm trees, palmettos, a beautiful lake wih a fountain and tropical birds dining. Look at the photos and then get yourself a holiday mood home.

About Ulrike Haagen

We are private people who have acquired this condo in Florida/USA. We rent the condo during the period we can't stay there ourselves. Unfortunately this is the biggest part of the year.

We live and work in Germany/Bavaria. As a patchwork family we have 6 children and four grandchildren. I am a teacher at a vocational school and besides that a freelance language trainer. My husband is employed as a manager in production at the company SKF which mainly produces bearings of all sorts for the automotive industry, the heavy industry, for aerospace as well as for wind energy. Florida is our dream destination and we are both happy to be able to escape once in a while from the cold and wet German weather.

Ulrike Haagen purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Ulrike Haagen chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay. It is located near everything. Not far from the beach. The resort is great and quiet. The condo is fully equipped with everything that you would need. I hope we have a chance to come back one day. I highly recommend this condo.

Beautiful condo in quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean and everything was in working order, including all cleaning supplies. Owner was very easy to work with and was tolerant of my own initial stupidity. ( went to wrong complex) Would highly recommend this unit to anyone willing to stay a few minutes from the beach at a much cheaper price than the beach units. Great place!!!

Florida Vacation at Shorewalk

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time staying at Shorewalk. I doubt we would stay any place else in Bradenton. Shorewalk is so convenient to everything we like to do-The Beach, Pirate Baseball Games, Shopping, Restaurants & Clubs, etc.

This was the first time we rented this unit and I must say it was really nice. The unit was well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We had a couple of issues that were taken care of immediately by Susanne the local person. King size bed was very comfortable. We would stay here again in the future for sure.

One suggestion: The TV in the main Bedroom only had local channels available- I would add the box so the guest could have all the TV Channels available in this room as well. It is only an $8.00 cost that I would just add to the monthly total if necessary.

Thank you for a wonderful time in Florida again this year.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo the month of January. The unit was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay. We eat in a lot and found the kitchen very well equipped. We noticed there was no vacuum cleaner and notified the owner in Germany. The next day their local contact showed up with a new vacuum. Their local contact as well as the owner checked in with us a couple times throughout the month. The grounds were beautiful as well as the two pools. Very convenient location. Anything we needed or wanted was just a few minutes away. We were so happy with our stay that we have already booked the unit for next year and have extended our stay.

Great Community. Poor Customer satisfaction

  • 2 of 5

The community that the condo was located in was fabulous. The pools, hot tubs and tennis courts were enjoyed by us when we weren't planning to visit family or sightsee. It was so convenient to walk to stores or to bus lines when we didn't want to drive to our destination. I am a runner and enjoyed all the communities and running opportunities in the surrounding neighborhoods. Everyone was very friendly in the clubhuse. We would stay in that community again, but not this condo.

Upon arriving, we discovered that the one large burner on the stove was either mediocre or scorching, nothing in between. Two burners worked successfully. The vacuum cleaner had a broken belt and did not work well at all. And the dryer made a horrid squealing noise when in use. It was so bad, we had to leave when it was in operation. We brought these things to the attention of both the owner and local contact. After being told we had to be present to get repairs made, we changed our plans and waited around one morning. NO phone call or text from either the owner or local contact to let us know a repair person was not going to be coming after all. A morning wasted. We were eventually told that the owner chose not to replace the cleaner as he plans to tile soon. Although ten days without vacuuming sounds like great news to kids not liking chores, by the end of our stay, those floors were gross. We did the best we could with the handheld part. But it lacked any extensions so we had to be on hands and knees to get crumbs off the floors. Not the relaxation we expected.

Last but certainly not least was that the internet connection was poor. The tv in the master had snow on the screen unless you hold the cord just so, so I suspect that there is a problem with the wiring. It was very frustrating. Heard often in the trip" It's out again. Reset the modem, please" Thank goodness my mother-in-law is nearby so we could finish setting up the kid's new tablets.

We placed some clothing on a shelf in the master closet, and it collapsed! It was not anchored properly at all. The last night there, my 16 year old son sat on the end of the bed to put his shoes on, and it collapsed under him! The place really needs some TLC.

We could have dealt with all these things if there had been decent communication. We had to track people down to get return phone calls, etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. It's great to hear you liked the location of the community as well as its facilities. We are very sorry to hear about all the problems you had with our condo as we ourselves stayed there in October and made sure that everything was in good condition. I'll now try to consider each issue you mentioned. - The burners - no-one has ever complained about them before you arrived and the guests that are there now have no problems with them either, they work just fine. The same applies to the - dryer - yes, its making a noise, but its not bad. Our current guests seem to be just fine with it. So that may be a subjective opinion. - The vacuum cleaner had a broken belt, that is true. By now there is a new vacuum cleaner in the unit. Our local contact took care of that. As far as the - poor communication is concerned, I always replied promptly by email and contacted Susanne, our local contact. I live in Germany and cannot do much from here but I know Susanne takes care of everything, she always has. - WiFi and TV are in perfect working condition as well. Neither before nor after your stay in our condo, guests have ever complained about those issues. They were/are happy and feel comfortable in our condo. So far, the furniture has endured little children, teenagers and adults of all ages. Thus it is very unlikely that such damage can be caused by a normal usage. You, however, have left our condo in such a terrible state that our cleaning lady needed 7 hours, double the time than normal, to clean up the mess you left, apart from the damage you caused to the rack and the bed. Everything was smeared, stained and sticky. This may mirror your behaviour in our condo in a certain way. We are really sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope that such problems won't occur again in future.
