Property description

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.
The apartment has two bedrooms/2 baths with a full kitchen and private lanai that offer wonderful limited views of the Gulf and beautiful sunsets.
Includes Free WiFi.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

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 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.

Why the Owner Chose Bradenton Beach, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
