About the property

World Class One and Two Bedroom Apartments

I own and personally maintain my condos at the only true resort on Anna Maria Island. I currently own 3 condos/apartments at Runaway Bay and a two bedroom apartment 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.

Additionally I own a just renovated apartment which 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. This apartment is for couples 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 2 two bedroom condos at Runaway Bay.I have been blessed to be living on Anna Maria Island 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.

I am also on the Board of Directors of Runaway Bay and currently live two blocks from Runaway Bay.

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.

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.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mary Beth for the wonderful compliments. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. 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.

Condo very tastefully decorated

  • 4 of 5

We found the condo to be very clean and tastefully decorated. We did have to purchase some supplies which I had assumed would be provided but it was not a problem. Barb Fiorillo

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as advertised. We stayed in unit 176 and really enjoyed the complex. It is literally steps from the pool, tennis and shuffleboard, and most importantly the beach! We had an issue with the air conditioning on the first night and contacted Michael who had a repairman dispatched the next morning. Highly recommend and would definitely return. The only suggestion we have is that the towels are probably due for replacement. Given all of the other updates, the bath towels were somewhat dated. There is plenty of beach gear, chairs, umbrellas, and most importantly a wagon to haul it all!

First time on island

  • 4 of 5

We found the condo lovely and very clean. There were a couple of items I would have brought with me if I knew I needed them but did find Publix close so no problem. (Toilet paper and kleenix). It was our first time on the island so found the exploring fun and enjoyable. Loved the shopping and great restaurants. Look forward to our next trip to the island. Owner very helpful.

A Touch of Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Ideally situated for the beautiful Gulf Coast the condo is very well appointed with all the necessary equipment. The owner, Michael Bartone is very attentive and ensures that everything is in pristine condition. We have now vacationed at Runaway Bay for the last fifteen years and recommend it highly.
