About Dianne or Bill Archer

We currently live most of the year in Indiana, but our son lives in Bradenton. We love spending as much time as possible on Anna Maria Island, and hope you will enjoy the island and our condo as much as we do!

Why Dianne or Bill Archer chose Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria Island is just a fun place to be. Everything you need is here - beautiful beaches, casual restaurants, and local shops all within walking distance. Just a short drive north to the local grocery store or breakfast places. You can take the free trolley all around the island.

Everything you need for a perfect stay in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Although we have stayed on holiday on Anna Maria Island for the last few years this is the first time we have stayed at Runaway Bay, For us it's great location with the island free tram stopping just outside which can take you the complete length of the island.The beach across the road and a lovely pool. The condo is well maintained and furnished with everything you need for a short or long stay. The owners communication was great and they were very accommodating when our plans changed slightly and we delayed our arrival by a day receiving a refund for the night we didn't stay ,which we weren't expecting ,we would recommend this condo to anyone and hope to go back if not next year sometime in the future . Thank you for helping make our holiday special

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the month of February. 2016 at this lovely 2BR/2BA condo in Bradenton Beach, Florida. The condo was clean, beautifully furnished and everything you need for a comfortable stay was provided. The owners were wonderful to work with and any communication with them got a prompt and helpful response. We especially enjoyed being able to take a short walk to the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico beaches, or to walk to the back of the complex to relax on the dock on the bay. Or, if you prefer it is also a short walk to the heated pool. Grocery shopping and drug stores are a short drive from the condo and Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach was less than a mile walk. Overall, it's hard to beat the location.

Anna Maria Island is our idea of paradise away from the cold and snow of Michigan winters. The beaches are beautiful and the amenities of the island are everything we need to feel comfortable and entertained. But if you want to take day trips to the parks or other attractions (i.e. Busch Gardens, Disney, Universal, LEGOLAND) they are all within a two hour drive.

We hope to be able to return to this condo in the future.

From the Owner

Anna Maria Island is just a fun place to be. Everything you need is here - beautiful beaches, casual restaurants, and local shops all within walking distance. Just a short drive north to the local grocery store or breakfast places. You can take the free trolley all around the island.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Sarasota-Bradenton International at 14 Miles Nearest Barpub : Gulf Drive Cafe/Bar or Wicked Taco at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Manatee County Golf Course at 6 Miles Nearest Motorway : I-75 at 16 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Island Spice at 60 Metres Nearest Beach : Bradenton Beach at 60 Metres Car: not necessary

Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico, west of Bradenton and southwest of Tampa FL. Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attractions here. The island has no high rise condos nor major hotels, and no fast food chains. Instead, it is a place where "old" Florida charm can still be found. Flip flops are a way of life, local restaurants and island shops are within an easy walk or bike ride, and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph. Fishing charters, Jetski rentals, adventure tours, parasailing, and bicycle rentals are also all nearby. Get away from it all, and come to Anna Maria Island.

In addition to life at the beach, you can enjoy the attractions in nearby Bradenton or Sarasota. Bradenton attractions include museums, numerous golf courses, cinemas, shopping, and riverfront dining on the Manatee River. The area is also home to baseball spring training. Sarasota offers the world famous museums, theater, botanical gardens, numerous festivals, performing arts venues, shopping and dining.
