About the property

World Class Two Bedroom Apartment Maintained and Managed by Owner

I own and personally maintain my condos at the only true resort on Anna Maria Island. I currently own 2 condos/apartments at Runaway Bay and a two bedroom apartment on Anna Maria Island.

UNIT 234 AT RUNAWAY BAY-This is a one bedroom/one bath condo at Runaway Bay located at 1801 Gulf Drive N Bradenton Beach Fl 34217

UNIT 176 AT RUNAWAY BAY -This is a two bedroom/two bath ground floor condo at Runaway Bay located at 1801 Gulf Drive North Bradenton Beach Fl 3427

I am continually upgrading my condos and apartment to insure that my guests expectations are exceeded both in the accommodations 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 apartment has two bedrooms/2 baths with a full kitchen and private lanai. This apartment is only 95 steps to the fabulous Gulf Beaches, The apartment is on the second floor and it can be accessed by a short flight of stairs or an elevator. The pool also features a hot tub which is great for relaxing. The apartment is ideal for guests looking for privacy.

About Michael Bartone

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 purchased my first one bedroom condo and subsequently purchased 3 other condos all at Runaway Bay. I now own 1 one bedroom condos and 1 two bedroom condos at Runaway Bay.I have been blessed to be living on Anna Maria Island when I purchased a home 2 blocks 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.

I was on the Board of Directors of Runaway Bay for 10 years until November 2016.

Most importantly I personally own and manage my units and it is not handled by an impersonal management company.

Michael Bartone purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Michael Bartone chose Anna Maria Island

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.

Most importantly I am not an absentee owner living 2 blocks from the complex. I maintain all of my properties personally and with care to meet my expectations.

What makes this apartment unique

This is the only true resort on Anna Maria Island. The complex sits between the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay of Sarasota on the narrowest part of the island. The 13 acres are full of amenities and lush landscaping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Notes:
. I have tried to make our value proposition significantly different than many of the other properties on Anna Maria Island. Most importantly I am a full time resident of Anna Maria so I am available to assist all of my guests should they have any questions or special needs. Most of the properties on this island are serviced and maintained by property management companies which cannot provide the same level of individual attention to detail and servicing.

WONDERFUL HOST, IMMACULATE PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Michael Bartone's duplex/apartment for a week and were treated like royalty. Michael was there to greet us and give us the "tour" of the place. He couldn't have been nicer, was so helpful if we needed anything during our stay. Our unit was beautifully decorated, immaculate and very comfortable. We felt right at home. The private and quaint backyard had a heated pool and hot tub for us to use anytime, and the fully equipped kitchen had everything we needed if we wanted to stay home and cook. The property itself is steps away from the beach (and the bay) and is located in a beautiful neighborhood. We have already booked with Michael (while we were still there) for our stay next year.

The condo was absolutely beautiful!

Michael was very helpful when we couldn't get the DVD player to work. He came over exactly when he said he would.

Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

My mother, teenage daughter and I stayed in the 2 bedroom condo owned by Michael and it was perfect! High end linens, comfortable beds, updated decor and everything you need for you to stay comfortably was all furnished. There are even beach towels, beach chairs and a beach wagon for you to use. The AMI trolley stop is right in front of the complex and you can ride it all over the island for free. Many great restaurants close by and the most beautiful beach I've ever been to, is just steps away. The pool was nice and well maintained as were the complex grounds. I highly recommend this property and will definitely be back.

My Sixth Year in 234 at Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time in 234. The kitchen had everything I needed. I ate fresh seafood all week. I walked on the beach every morning. Nice pool for the afternoons. Perfect porch with afternoon sun. Great cross breeze. I could sleep with the windows open. That was wonderful as I came from Minneapolis. I hope to come again.
