Very comfortable. Super clean and well kept up! Very family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have rented from the Parkers. The condo is very nice, super cozy and very family friendly! The beds are comfortable and everything is very clean and kept up nicely. We loved having all the beach chairs, umbrella and toys there making it easier for us when packing! We will be renting this condo again when we plan our next trip to brandenton beach!

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

A truly beautiful condo, it makes you feel at home the moment you walk through the door! It has absolutely everything that you would ever need,the sofas a comfortable, the beds are also, fully functional kitchen and both bathrooms a really meticulously clean, bright and spacious, there is full cable and Wi-Fi, for the beach there are plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, fishing rods, and even Buckets and spades!

The Beach is only yards away and private, the Bay is the same distance and has a delightful dock where you can sit and watch the sunrise.

The owners are delightful to deal with, nothing is too much trouble, and their onsite agent is charming.

We have visited this condo a few times now and will continue to do so in the future

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.
