About the Owner

Owners Neil and Rhian took the plunge and purchased 127 Runaway Bay after travelling to the island and staying at Runaway for the previous 15 years. it has been one of the best decisions they ever made....they travel from their home in Wales, UK, three times a year for the sun, beach and food.

Speaks: english, Welsh

Guestbook comments from the owner

Owners Neil and Rhian may live thousands of miles away in the UK, but they could not do enough to make our vacation enjoyable and stress free. When we did encounter a little problem with a kitchen appliance, handylady Lynne was there to help out within the hour. It is in a quiet. And sunny corner of Runaway Bay and we lived the 2 minute stroll onto the beach most evenings to enjoy the sunsets.

Brilliant holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous holiday in this excellent condo. Everything was perfect, the condo was very clean and well equipped. Runaway Bay is very well situated, the beautiful beach is just across the road, and shops and restaurants are close by. Anna Marie Island is beautiful, can't wait to visit again! Thank you Rhian and Neil for all your help. I would definitely recommend this condo.

Cozy, clean and well supplied!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this condo! It was the cleanest condo we have ever stayed in! It was fully stocked, especially with towels. The walk to the beach was very short which was nice. It was right across the street. There was no view of the Beach from the condo but we ended up exploring the islands so much we did not notice that too much.. Great fishing pier on back side of condo property. Parking, landscaping, amenities were all very nice, especially the tennis court. Management was super nice/welcoming and the entire property was very well maintained. Oh! And this condo has fresh aloe Vera right outside the front door which was wonderful to use on our sunburns. So much better than store bought aloe. There is a great Publix and drug store right up the street and a lot of shopping and eateries right across the bridge in Bradenton. Sarasota is a short drive away with neat things to see and do. Parks everywhere, wildlife everywhere, great dolphin viewing in the bays, flowers and tropical plants, awesome bird watching, great bike paths and trails, bowling, putt-putt, movies, charter boat services, etc. This area has everything and it looks so clean and kept up.....not junky and run down like a lot of beach towns.,,

We would always stay here on any trip back to Anna Maria Island! This condo and location hit everything in our vacation checklist!

From the Owner

It's fab!!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Sarasota at 15 Miles Nearest Beach : Bradenton at 0.1 Miles Car: recommended

Runaway Bay is just across the street from a beautiful, sandy

beach. The heated pool is the largest on the island with an 'island

feel' from the striped umbrellas and chairs. Lighted tennis court,

private fishing dock and exercise room. Walk or take the trolley,

which stops right in front of Runaway Bay, to the island's many

restaurants. Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa are only short

drives away. We have compiled a list, which we will gladly furnish

for you, of our favorite restaurants, watering holes, beaches and

things to see and do in the area.
