“Beautiful, Restful, Comfortable”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Tradewind Resorts is the best vacation "find". The setting is quite attractive--pastel cottages, well manicured tropical landscape, beautiful blue waters. The cottages are clean, well equipped, quiet, and conveniently located. Management is attentive and knowledgable, giving us many suggestions for activities and dinners. The beach is just across the street and beach towels, umbrellas, and lounge chairs are provided. The pool and fishing pier located at the other side of the resort were also enjoyable. Two nice features of our vacation were the free trolley that travels the length of the island and poor (no) cell phone service. The resort provides free local and long distance calls but it was truly pleasant to disconnect from reality for a while. We can't wait to come back--next year we want to stay much longer.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be equally comfortable but there are a few 2nd floor rooms and no elevator.

We've rented this place on a spot, while looking for "escape" from a vacation property we've rented previously.

TradeWinds is a quiet, comfortable and very clean place. Since we rented at the last moment we had to switch suites in the middle of our weekly stay. Both suites are nearly identical, consist of 2 rooms - bedroom and dining/ living room. As the ocean was a bit chilly, having a heated pool was a big plus.

Ok the tradewinds is a wonderful little getaway. It's very close to tampa as well as orlando. This resort is a small cluster of cottages. It is very quaint well kept up and has Good accommodations. The resort is pet friendly. 1 of the best features is that you are only have to cross the street to get to see the beach. You should note that this beach is regularly rated as 1 of the best on the planet. Fabulous. We've been back several times. It lacks a formal fitness center to the best of my recollection, but the beach is very popular with runners and surfers

Room Tip: Cottages at the east of the back of the property which are by the pool and river. Those colleges are...

We've rented homes in the past for an extended vacation but we could not find one in our price range for Bradenton Beach so we opted for Tradewinds. We found the landscaping very pleasing although it's limited but the outdoor table and grill area is a nice place to read and relax (we did not grill since we did not have charcoal, but grilling tools were provided). Our 1 bedroom unit was clean but the furnishings and kitchen appliances were dated. While the bedroom and walk in closet were good size, the kitchen and living room were a bit small. And with only 1 TV (I know we're supposed to be outside) we would have liked a 2nd TV in the bedroom to watch while in bed. There is no dishwashwer so we bought paper plates and cups to avoid dishwashing. The kitchen is fairly well stocked but there is limited kitchen counter space. The people in the area are friendly, but we won't be back as this is not a dog friendly area (no dogs on beach or walking paths) and the density of people to land is quite high (I'm glad we came on shoulder season as it could really get congested during high season). The beach is just across the street where chairs and towels from the resort are provided. On the positive side the washer/dryer on property is free. On the flip side - don't go through too much toilet paper or you may need to supply your own (if you don't pay for daily housekeeping)! Several of the units are dog friendly - so that was a major plus - as was the local dog parks we drove to daily.

Room Tip: End units overlook the canal and have a grassy area.
