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 Anna Maria Island

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.

Runaway Bay Lovely 2-Bed condo by the beach
average rating of 4.7272725 based on 16 reviews

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.

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!
