Runaway Bay - one bedroom / bathroom - perfect for couples


Property Details

Updated: Oct 24, 2016
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

This condo first floor (US), ground floor (UK)has had major improvements! The condo was completely re-modelled in 2013 including the kitchen, with brand new dishwasher, stove, sink with food disposal, new stone counter tops and furniture. The remodelled bathroom features a large walk-in shower, new (higher level) sanitary ware and is newly tiled. There is a new washer-dryer, one of the few one bedroom condos with this facility. The entire condo has been re-decorated with new sofa and living room furniture including a new flat screen TV.

New 'distressed' bedroom furniture has been replaced in mid 2014. The bedroom (with a king size bed) overlooks the fountain in the lake and sliding doors open out to the outdoor area. There is generous wardrobe space between the bedroom and the bathroom. The living room also has sliding doors to the outdoor area.

Free internet and phone calls to cell and landlines in US and Canada. The pool at Runaway Bay is the largest pool on the island and is complete with loungers and umbrellas.

There are many beautiful golf courses . Anna Maria Island is far removed from the over commercialised area of Florida and has a relaxed atmosphere; the Island and Islanders are extremely warm and welcoming. An unforgettable holiday.

The gorgeous sandy Gulf of Mexico beach is across the road with Runaway Bay's own private access. Runaway Bay complex has a tennis court, exercise room, shuffleboard, picnic tables and a fishing pier into the Bay of Sarasota.

Anna Maria is less than 60 miles from Tampa International Airport and less than 15 miles from Sarasota Airport

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was well-appointed, comfortable, and absolutely perfect for a beach vacation. Even had a washer, dryer! We loved the light, airy feel and the delight of sharing our morning coffee time on the patio with the resident grey heron seeking his breakfast. We would assuredly rent the unit again!

We recently stayed at Unit 183 for our honeymoon in June 2016. The condo was absolutely wonderful and very clean. From the moment we arrived, we both loved how cozy clean and comfortable the condo was. In the future when we return to Anna Maria, this will be the place we stay. It is a short walk to the beach, the pool is not far, and there is also a wonderful view of the bay a few steps from the condo.

Quiet Gulf Getaway on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

This condo on Anna Maria Island is so well equipped, clean and comfortable - perfect for a relaxing winter getaway. A corner location in the complex made for privacy, and nothing was lacking including even a cooler for the beach! A patio for dining outside overlooking a meandering inlet with fountain and an occasional egret was lovely. We tried some of the suggested restaurants, some even within walking distance and loved Starfish, a great hidden pearl. Walk to the beach across the street, and if walking is your thing, try some of the parks in the area...deSoto and Robinson.

This place was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place this was to stay. It was in a great location, an easy bicycle ride to all parts of the island, which we did daily. We rented bikes from Beach Bums for the week & pedaled all over the island. A great way to see all the beautiful scenery.The beach was right across the street & the trolley stop was right next door to the property.This was our second visit to Anna Maria & this property was by far the superior choice. The condo was absolutely wonderful.It was just as advertised,maybe even better.Everything we needed was there,from the full kitchen, with everything one would need, to the washer & dryer. We soon realized we could have brought less clothes by having this great feature..We enjoyed the condo very much ,especially the sitting area at the back which looked out on a man made pond with a bubbling water feature that made it very pleasant to listen too as we drifted off to sleep, on a very comfortable King size bed. The living room area was very nicely decorated & the shower was very nice too.The owners also provided everything we needed for the beach, from towels to beach chairs & umbrella. It was a tough choice to go to the beach or the beautiful pool that was on the property, so usually we did both.Everything was clean & well maintained in the condo..The owner was very helpful when dealing with them. She gave us many hints on things to do as well as places to eat. One place we enjoyed was Fire & Stone Pizza ,on Cortez Road , just a short bus ride from our locations, where you can get an all you can eat buffet of pizza,salad,soup & ice cream sundae for 7.99. We were so glad she recommended this place to us.It was delicious.Another place I would recommend is Skinnys. It is a small place , but the best burger you could ever want can be found there.It is a short bike ride from the Holmes Beach restaurant area, where there is live music playing outdoors.nightly from 6 til 8.All in all, I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wanted to stay on Anna Maria Island.We truly loved it there & quite honestly, were very sad to leave when our time there was up.If we ever have the chance to go again, this is where we want to stay.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We vacation on Anna Maria Island every year for about 25 years. This was the first time just my husband and I went, and the first time to rent this condo at Runaway Bay. Great location. Just across the street to the beach. Not near the public beaches which makes it a plus. We have a canoe and this unit is located in the back of Runaway Bay near the dock and near the place to keep your canoe. We went out every day and fished. The condo was very clean and very equipped with everything you will need. We will stay again in this condo. Thank you, from Wesley Chapel, Florida
