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.
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.

A great location to explore a fantastic area
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.
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.
This was a fantastic condo nice clean well equipt everything we needed nice resort close to beach good size pool very friendly complex enjoyed our first visit to this area but will definately return again close to all the restaurants and shops a great Indian restaurant right next door ideal for family's, couples and teens something for everyone owner very quick to respond well done Jones family for my perfect holiday
Great condo, good location.
Enjoyed the herons watching us from the table outside.
the Island really relaxing and great to see dolphins, Manatees etc.
would be happy to return
Cozy, clean and well supplied!
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!
Nice place in a great location!
Very convenient w/ all the amenities. Would definitely stay here again.
close to all the areas we needed to get to ... beach, relatives, eateries & shopping.
Enjoyed the Beach House & Anna Maria Rod & Reel Club restaurants & Love the Sand Dollar for gift shopping.
*One slight concern w/ winged bugs coming in around window in master bedroom. I was not able to lock window tightly.
