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!

Really enjoyed the condo, everything you could possibly need was available including beach towels and beach chairs!!! The balcony was a little small as we love to spend mornings and evenings there but over all enjoyed our stay!

We had a great time at this condo. The location is perfect for walking to the beach, stores, and the pool. We had everything we needed for the kitchen, bedrooms and even beach supplies! We look forward to staying there again.

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.

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 few 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.
