Welcome to your perfect Florida vacation! This bright and beachy 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo accommodates 6 and is newly updated and tastefully decorated to wrap you with the comforts of home, yet with a distinctive beach appeal. Located just off of Bradenton Beach, this condo sits on Anna Maria Island, known for its "Old Florida" appeal and surrounded on all sides by the beautiful Gulf of Mexico waters and the well-known Sarasota Bay, offering glorious sunset views, right from your front porch!
Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Twin Beds | Living Room: Pullout Couch
Offering over 1,080 square feet this property is bright, clean and lovely - perfect for the relaxing getaway you're after. The fully-equipped kitchen opens up to the main room so you and your companions don't have to feel closed off when preparing your favorite meals and summer drinks!
The kitchen opens to a dining table and breakfast bar, with comfortably seating 6 and the main living area, where you can kick back and relax after a busy day out on the waters, with a flat-screen cable TV and DVD player. Just outside the living room is an enclosed lanai that feels really open and floods the room with gorgeous light.
The bedrooms, each with their own bathroom are decorated with bright, beach-themed accents and offer the space and comfortable beds needed for a good night's sleep. Each room has its own flat-screen TV as well.
Finally, the Runaway Bay condo community has a large heated pool that you and your guests will be able to access.
The view of the Sarasota Bay is visible from your condo lanai and MBR but if you want to actually get out to the waters, Bradenton Beach is just a 5-minute stroll away and provides striking blue waters and every water sport imaginable.
Enjoy access to the free Anna Maria Island trolley, which stops at the beaches, restaurants, shops, piers and, of course, Runaway Bay.
Bridge Street, just south of the home, is great for the shoppers in your group. A local favorite is the 'Bridge Tender Inn', right where Bridge Street meets the harbor. You can dine outside on the water or sit at the Tiki bar and take in the Florida sun and waters without the rush of every day life. The 'Gulf Drive Café' is also a favorite spot where you can have a personal tiki table overlooking the waters, and it's just a short walk down the beach!
The north end of the island is packed with great shops and dining options as well. It's especially lovely in the evening as the sun sets. The 'Waterfront' on the Tampa Bay side has great views of the city pier. If you're a fresh fish lover, don't miss the 'Rod & Reel Pier', an absolute gem, known for providing "A little bit of old Florida" and dynamite seafood.
If water sports aren't your thing, you will also find great hiking and biking options nearby. One of the best attractions by foot or bike is the Robinson Nature Preserve, offering impressive views and a quality Florida experience with nature. There are miles of paved trails through the swamps and estuaries - it's a welcome break if you've had enough beach time.
