so GREAT we are coming back in 2016
"We stayed the first week of Jan 2015 with our adult children and their spouses. First time we have ever rented a home and had our reservations. The home was clean, well stocked with linens, kitchen items, games, WI FI was perfect for all to use. The outdoor area is set up for gas grill and charcoal grill with a separate patio for the fenced in pool area. So close to the beach and the free trolley, as we didn't even attempt to drive the week we stayed. There is absolutely no need to worry when renting this property. We are returning in Feb 2016 with adult friends and hope to make a yearly trip to this home."

"What a pleasant stay!! Great communication between the owners and us from the time of reserving the dates, the night of arrival and once during our stay to see if everything was in order. This home was very well suited for our family of 4 plus our dog for a week's vacation. It was so nice to have our dog with us while traveling. For a dog friendly rental this was top notch. From the time we arrived we knew that this was going to be a great getaway from the cold Michigan winter.
About the House: The kitchen was supplied with all the necessities for preparing and serving meals. The beds were quite comfortable and the house was spotless. Oh! and the shower head in the master bedroom was awesome. We enjoyed grilling steaks out back on Christmas day and having drinks under the lighted pergola.
The location: The house was in a perfect location on the Island. We took evening walks every night around the neighborhood and down Gulf drive. You are just a block and a half away from the Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful sugar sand beach, great for your morning walks! Take a stroll to Ginny's and Jane's for breakfast or lunch. They have great homemade baked goods and handmade sandwiches. We did rent a golf cart from a local rental place off the island. They deliver and pick up right at the house, but be sure to make reservations in advance. Too fun! We have vacationed in Florida for the past 20 years and usually stay in Sarasota or Siesta key for the beaches. This was a refreshing vacation to stay in a place with a home town atmosphere. Very relaxing vacation, love the beach (walking, sunsets) the pier (fishing and people watching also dolphins) and the downtown boutiques (5 minute walk from house)."

Excellent location, beautiful property, can't wait to return!
"What a fabulous vacation we had on Anna Maria Island; our host Michael made us very welcome and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed; he even stocked a few essentials for our arrival since he knew we were traveling a long way with small children and might need emergency food supplies immediately upon arrival! He really cares about his guests and it shows in how he has furnished the 2-bedroom condo, as well as his attention to detail - it was immaculate! The beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, there is privacy for each bedroom and bath, and a washer-dryer as well. The lanai has a beach closet stocked with everything one might need for the beach. My family of 6 were perfectly comfortable in this little gem, which is across the street from the beach, so very convenient! Plenty of wonderful restaurants in walking distance; great pool on property and tennis court as well. It doesn't get any better than this, folks! We fell in love with the island, and can't wait to return to Michael's Runaway Bay condo again in the near future."

"We stayed at this property for Spring Break as a family. The location was perfect and the condo was nice. We spent much of our time at the beach so that 2 minute walk to our spot by the water was perfect. We enjoyed watching the sun set from the roof and the kids enjoyed the pool. Ira was great to work with and very professional. Everything was as he said. One bonus was there was wireless internet at the Condo which we were not aware of prior to our stay."
