What makes this condo unique

Our one bedroom is a three minute stroll along the pond to the swimming pool or the beach. There is also a great view from the lanai and the living room of the pond. And, it doesn't seem like much to embellish on, but our condo is the only one bedroom that has a full size h/e Washer & Dryer. Most one bedroom condo's in this complex have to bring their laundry to the clubhouse, to use coin operated machines.

Great location for beach, strolling, shopping, etc/

  • 5 of 5

Condo unit was great - very clean and maintained. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Great having a washer/dryer available. Easy access to beach. Fresh seafood markets available just across the Cortez bridge, along with great small local seafood restaurants. Easy to get to other parts of the area, lots to see and do in the area - check the local Wednesday newspaper and you can easily find out what there is to do on the island and nearby towns. Glad we stayed here. Owners are very kind and helpful.

Beautiful vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely condo on Runaway Bay. The furnishings were Florida perfect. The condo had every necessity that we needed and the new appliances were appreciated. The condo had a very comfortable bed and a fully appointed bathroom. Although we dined out most of our stay, the kitchen was complete for cooking any desired meals or snacks. The view was lovely and the patio access was perfect for seating, reading and enjoying the sunshine. The hosts provided outdoor and beach furniture. We were familiar with the area and appreciated being close to some wonderful seafood restaurants. Being able to cross the road and walk on the beach was a great bonus to our stay. We would certainly want to stay here again when we return to this area.

Ron and Patti's condo in Runaway Bay on lovely Anna Maria Island far exceeded my expectations. My husband and I stayed here July 8th -15th 2017. The description in the listing is 100% accurate. In my opinion, the unit has the best possible location in the complex, right across the street from the beach access. The condo is updated, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. From the moment you walk in you can tell that Ron and Patti take great pride in their property, care for it really well and pay special attention to detail. This can be seen in the quality items they provide. From cookware, dishes and utensils to big fluffy towels for both bath and beach, not to mention the comfy bed linens. They make themselves available for any questions or concerns you may have and are quick to respond.

They enclosed their lanai which makes it so nice to enjoy, as you are protected from the bugs and the elements. It is such a nice place to sit and read or just relax.

I am used to sleeping with a ceiling fan on in my bedroom at home so that was something I missed, but aside from that I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. It made for a fantastic vacation and I am very much looking forward to staying here again. I don't want to stay anywhere else on AMI now the I've found Ron and Patti's place!

Owner's Response: Carolyn, We love the enclosure too. It allowed us to replace the hard and oversize outdoor furniture with some very comfy chairs, lamp & table because we don't have to worry about the weather conditions. Just a thought if you visit again. Patti & I open the sliding doors to both bedroom and living room, this air conditions the lanai too. We also have the lanai and dining room fans on which helps quite a bit. We do appreciate your stay.

108 Runaway Bay, Bradenton Beach, FL

  • 5 of 5

This condo is wonderful. It has absolutely everything you need and then some. When we first walked in you could just feel the "clean" home. It was spotless. It was also beautifully decorated. The bed was very comfortable too. A walkway to the gulf was right across the street making it easy to go to the beach at night to watch the sunset (beach chairs provided of course). I also found a few projects that I want to do at home, like the pull out drawers in the kitchen. My husband and I don't cook while we're on vacation but if you wanted to, everything you need is there. Even inside the cabinets were spotless with beautiful palm tree dishes. If you want a relaxing care free vacation, rent this condo.

Owner's Response: Gloria, A favorable review is an essential part of renting and we do appreciate your kind thoughts. We have found that the glide out shelving you eluded to makes it so much easier to access everything in the lower cupboards. Thank you for taking the time to write it Patti & Ron

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment just a short walk from the beautiful beach. Everything you need can be found in the apartment, latest TV, washing and drying machines, beach chairs and gazebo etc etc. Very comfortable and quiet too. The swimming pool on site is large and clean. A great place for a relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: Susan, The U K is along way to come for vacation and we could have had just a little less rain while you were here. But there still is plenty to see and do on and around our beautiful Island. We do hope you'll come back soon. Our Best Wishes Patti & Ron
