So relieved to have an awesome start to our week!
We were coming to town for a Baseball factory event so we needed to find a place that was close to Pirate City and close to other things for us to do while my son was at Pirate City. Not knowing the area really we decided to look at VRBO for places. We found this Lakeside condo and after looking at reviews and getting some general information feedback from the owners we decided to book it. When we arrived I was so relieved at how nice it was. We have had some bad experience with rentals on size and cleanliness so I was especially excited that it was spacious and very clean!!! It is a perfectly laid out condo with nice room. It was also well equipped with beach chairs and an umbrella which we didn't have with us. To our surprise the location was only 15 minutes to Pirate City and also 15 minutes to about 5 different beautiful beaches. It only took about 35 minutes to get to Siesta Key beach too. It was an absolutely perfect location to everything. Also, within walking distance is the grocery store and Applebees. We would definitely rent this condo again. Everything was great and we are so glad we opted for this over a hotel rental. Thank you for supplying such a great place to rent and for keeping it up as a rental should be.

It was just like being at home!
We recently stayed at the Rooney's Lakeside Condo when we were in town for a national soccer tournament. From the moment I inquired to rent it to the moment we left, we felt like family. The Rooneys are quick to respond to emails/questions and they are very accommodating. And Berndt, well, he has to be the kindest man I have ever spoken to! And also very responsive and committed to making sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The condo itself is clean, fully equipped and has many "extras" that were very much appreciated - free and fast wifi, Apple TV, 4 beach chairs, coffee filters (silly to mention I know, but nothing more frustrating than having to buy a package of 100 filters for only 5 days! It's the little things!), cozy, fluffy bath towels, amazingly comfortable beds - I could go on and on. We were even lucky enough to meet their wonderful neighbor, Karen, who shared her wonderful Christmas baked goodies with us!! I highly recommend this property to anyone staying in the Bradenton/Sarasota area. It is close to everything - shopping, grocery, restaurants and is just a short drive to the beaches. And the Shorewalk property has amenities galore - pools, activities, beautiful club house, etc. Should our travels every bring us back to the area we will definitely rent the Rooney's condo. Sincere thanks to the Rooneys and Bernt for everything!

Fabulous place to stay
We had an excellent time in this beautiful condo. It is light, bright and clean with homely soft furnishings. Sufficient cooking equipment if you want to cook. It is close to the supermarket and lots if different restaurants. I swam in the pool every morning before breakfast, is there a better way to start the day? We would definitely stay here again!!

COMFORTABLE, SPACIOUS AND WELCOMING CONDO
Such a Lovely clean and spacious condo. The condo has everything you need for a very comfortable and enjoyable vacation. Very comfortable beds and fully equiped kitchen. The pool and tennis courts were excellent, with very friendly staff maintaining these facilities. Very good restaurants and supermarket within walking distance, which was an added bonus. Lots of places to visit, Anna Maria island is a must to visit, as is the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, and kayaking though the Robinson Preserve is not to be missed. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting this area of Florida

Great Condo, Easy Access to Beaches & Amenities
Second time we've stayed. Steve & Karen are great hosts, everything you need is in the condo. Good location for Amenities (we like Applebees for some strange reason :) ). Love the beaches, the preserves - visited Perico this time, and the sunset from the northern tip of Anna Maria Island is something special. And it's just oozing with wildlife. Returned to Star Fish Company - recommend that. Found a great little coffee place - Land of a Thousand Hills. Visited De Soto monument - definitely worth a trip. Condo was clean, & well equipped. And Florida is perfect this time f year - 29C, and sunny...

Very pleasant condo in great location
A lovely, modern, light and airy condo in a complex with lots of facilities for young and old - 2 pools, 2 tennis courts, table tennis and a pool table. Great location, just 10 minutes' drive from a wide choice of Gulf coast beaches. Wide variety of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Good location for day trips to Tampa/Orlando.

We spent a month at the Shorewalk condo - it was a great place to stay! The condo was clean and comfortable, and we liked its convenient location in Bradenton. We love the nearby beaches of Anna Maria Island, but also enjoyed relaxing around the pools at the Shorewalk complex. There are lots of good restaurants in the area - we especially liked the Cortez Kitchen and Swordfish Grill in the Cortez village, and The Sage Biscuit just down the road from Shorewalk. Of course it's always nice to have a Publix within walking distance! Other area attractions we enjoyed were the Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, and the DeSoto National Memorial.
