About Neil Jones

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.

Neil Jones purchased this condo in 2007

Why Neil Jones chose Bradenton Beach

It's fab!!

What makes this condo unique

This is the best location within the Runaway Bay escort as it is in a quiet corner but also enjoys more sun than any other condo and is beautifully equipped and furnished.

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.

We had a great stay here

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit here at the end of December. The condo is spacious. The kitchen is well-equipped and the bedrooms have plenty of storage. The owner was very easy to work with and extremely responsive to any questions we had. The condo location is great with easy beach access right across the street.

Fab Condo and Destination

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculate, with up to date décor in an ideal location for beach, nearby eateries and supermarket. No disturbance (noise etc) at night and comfortable beds. Well equipped with beach necessities such as chairs, umbrella, toys etc and even fishing equipment if you want to give it a go! Neil was very responsive to communication - although we did try to book a few times before we confirmed but understandably the 24 turn around may not be most convenient to the owner if away (so keep trying!) but once confirmed he was very responsive and provided good information.

Thanks Neil for allowing us to experience your condo and Anna Marie Island! We'll be back!

A great location to explore a fantastic area

  • 4 of 5

Great communication from owner including when we were at the apartment. The development is well established and is maintained to a good standard.

Unlike many complexes there is a lovely pool which we used every day and was never crowded.

Husband used the gym and found it fine for a quick workout.

The apartment was charming and had lots of light and space. Comfy master bed and really liked the lounge area.

Our only critisism is of the cleaners before we arrived as it was clear that they hadn't changed master bed (sand in it) or dusted well but this is no reflection of the owner or apartment and we'd happily return.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your kind review of 127 Runaway Bay. I have checked with our cleaning company and they state the sheets had been washed and replaced,, as is standard practice for each new guest. We have never had any complaints about cleaning issues in 10 years of busy rentals so I can only think you must have brought in sand from the nearby beach, which in itself is no issue for us as we recognise that children in particular do not always wash their feet before entering the condo.

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.
