Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Runaway Bay! There was so much to do. My family enjoyed playing shuffleboard and tennis! The bikes were a big hit! We spent most afternoons in the pool. The beach was just a very short walk from the condo. We especially loved the beach chairs and beach towels. With powdery sand and limited crowds, what more could you ask for! In addition, we used the trolley most evenings. Be sure to visit Bridge St for outside entertainment by the water. I would definitely recommend this condo for couples or families! Plenty of room with everything that you need for an enjoyable vacation! Thank you, Steve!

This condo met almost all of our expectations with one exception.

  • 3 of 5

Steve was very accommodating and was always available to answer all of our questions even though he is in the U.K. We stayed Dec 18, 2016 through Jan 31, 2017. The condo was very clean and everything we needed for every day use was readil available. We liked the location being near the center of AMI. Our favorite beach was always Coquina and we went there almost everyday so we did not use the pool. However the pool was clean and very nice. Our disappointment came from the sofa and love seat. The sofa seat cushions slanted drastically to the back and made it impossible to use unless you used one of many sofa pillows behind your back and sides. One seat cushion on the love seat kept sliding forward. I would have given 4.5 stars if not for the seating.

A great stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay and the location helped a lot! We were able to do everything and was short distance from our spots. Perfect size for the 4 of us. Allowed us to be roomy, chill and relaxed instead of being cramped in a hotel room. Steve was awesome to work with and talk to. Very polite and responsive. Thanks for an awesome stay. Will do it again Fosho

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time to stay at Runaway Bay and our 2nd in this unit. We found everything we needed and more supplied for us in the condo. We enjoyed playing in the waves at the beach, relaxing at the pool, as well as beautiful sunsets! Restaurants were within walking distance, and the kids enjoyed the bikes. We come to visit relatives in Bradenton yearly, but like to have our own place to stay. We definitely will try to get this unit again!

Thank you Steve for allowing my family and I to rent your condo. You were excellent to work with and your condo was exactly what we needed. The pictures do not do it justice. All of the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and it was such a nice atmosphere. The beach was literally across the street! The price was perfect!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

This condo was neat, clean and well maintained. Just across the street to the beach it was just perfect. The owner provided everything you needed to enjoy your time at the beach. The Anna Maria trolly stops in front of the property too. The images on the website are up to date on how the property actually looks. All of the appliances were new and it was wonderful having a W/D available anytime. We did not use the pool but at a glace it looked nice. There is also a dock at the back of property to fish from or just a nice quiet place to relax. The owner is great with communication. We had 6 adults on our trip and there was plenty of room for everyone.

We recommend the following restaurants....Rod and Reel, Feeling Swell and Gulf Drive Cafe. Take a short drive to Sarasota to visit the Mote Aquarium too.
