Anna Maria condo description

I own and personally maintain my condos at the only true resort on Anna Maria Island. I currently own 4 condo/apartments at Runaway Bay and a two apartment duplex on Anna Maria Island. I am continually upgrading my condos to insure that my guests expectations are exceeded both in the accommodation and their overall experience on the island. The Runaway Bay Complex features 13 acres and the largest heated swimming pool on Anna Maria. Additionally we have tennis courts, recreation room, sauna, exercise equipment, shuffleboard court, Bocce court, fishing pier, and two private accesses to the beautiful white sandy beaches.
Bradenton Beach just across the street.
This resort was voted best resort by Bradenton Herold for the past two years and has been featured in many national publications. This is a wonderful year round destination full of onsite amenities.
The duplex has 2 two bedroom/2 bath apartments with full kitchens and private lanais that offer wonderful views of the Gulf and beautiful sunsets.
Includes Free WIfi,Unlimited USA and Canada Calling, and use of two beach bikes.
Runaway Bay Selected For 'Best Beaches, Shopping, Attractions, Galleries, Dining And More' by Sarasota Magazine for 2013.

              About the owner: I took and early retirement from American Express Travel Service several years ago where I was a Global Director for Business Travel. Just prior to my retirement I had the opportunity to visit Anna Maria Island and immediately fell in love with its pristine beaches and old Florida charm.

I now own 2 one bedroom condos and 2 two bedroom condos at Runaway Bay.I have been blessed to be living on Anna Maria Island since March of this year when I purchased a home approximately 3 minutes from Runaway Bay. I pride myself in taking personal attention to the furnishings and amenities in my condos. I currently co own a meeting planning business, so I continue to be involved in many facets of the hospitality business. Throughout my career I have traveled all over the world and I have high exceptions of the accommodations that I stay in. I have these same expectations for all of my condos. Make sure you check out my website at www.myannamariacondo.com

              Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
              I have visited many beach resorts all over the world and I can assure you that you will love our fabulous beach,our 13 acres of beautiful views and gardens. Make sure you check out my website at www.myannamariacondo.com
