We stayed for three weeks at the Tradewinds Resort. The condo was very clean, the staff was great, and the grounds were immaculate. Tradewinds has pet-friendly units, which is great. The place has a neighborhood feel to it, as many guests sat on their porches with their pets and chit chatted each day. The pool on the bay was beautiful. The beach access across the street provided a lovely pavilion perfect for sunset watching and also beach chairs for your use. Definitely a wonderful stay. Tradewinds also offered complimentary laundry facilities and beach towels for your daily use.
Located across from the gloriously uncluttered Bradenton Beach, this tidy garden-like setting wedged between beach and bay is perfect for those seeking quiet perfection on the Gulf Coast. The staff are brilliant, Housekeeping a dream and the ‘residents’ all thoughtful and respectful of others. Beds are dreamy, kitchens have all the amenities and, while simple at best, you’ll soon discover that less is more before long. Your own little BBQ and dining area set in a garden patio make it very hard to leave ‘home’ where All is Quiet after 10 p.m. (and the rule is observed by everyone!) This is one tidy, tight little ship and the cares of the world cannot help but melt away. If you need more than glorious sunsets, endless beach walks and pounding waves as a soundtrack, several dining options are all within 20 minutes’ walk — Staff are happy and helpful – they LIKE their work! If only all hospitality promises made delivered like this!
