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 Florida Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a very relaxing week at Ron and Patti's condo in Runaway Bay. The location was perfect - steps to the beach, very friendly condo community, wonderful saltwater pool, and close to restaurants and the grocery. This was our first trip to Anna Maria Island and by the end of the week we felt very at home here and did not want to leave! The condo was very clean and came stocked with everything we needed for the beach and pool. We especially enjoyed sitting on the lanai with our morning coffee. Very quiet and peaceful!

Best location on AMI

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling to Florida every winter for over 25 years and AMI has become my favorite winter getaway (this was my third stay in 2016). The 7 mile beach is amazing, especially if you like to walk - sugar soft sand and perfectly flat with hard packed sand at waters edge. Amazing sunsets!

Ron and Patti's condo is perfect in every way - beautifully decorated and fully equipped. Nothing was missing, right down to comfortable beach chairs. The location is the best, especially if you do not have a car while on the island (I rented a bike from Beach Bums). It is an easy 5 minute bike ride to Publix, Walgreens and CVS. In 5 minutes you can walk to Bridge Street for shopping/eating.

This condo is very close to the pool which makes it easy to go back and forth from pool to condo. The best thing about the location of this unit is that in about 1 minute you can walk across the street and be sitting in your chair on the beach. Within less than 5 minute walk south on the beach you can rent jet skis, kayaks and paddleboards.

I have already booked another visit and highly recommend this condo. Thanks Ron and Patti - can't wait to return in December!!!

Have a Great Time on your stay in March Too! Best Regards Patti & Ron

Owner's Response: Pamela, You had booked over fourteen months in advance, but it does seem that the months flew by quite fast. I'm sure that planning for a wedding from the UK was no easy task. And I hope everything went well with no glitches. Patti & I would also like to congratulate the new couple. We do appreciate the booking and look forward to having you stay with us again. We also have a two bedroom on the intra coastal with million dollar views, that you may be interested in looking at Vrbo# 616892 Our Best Regards Patti & Ron

Beautiful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on other islands in Florida and by far this was the most beautiful and clean accommodations we have stayed in. Fully stocked kitchen and bathroom. Very clean and organized. The grounds and pool are also lovely. We truly enjoyed our stay at Runaway Bay!!! Directions to the condo and instructions for use and ability to call with questions were exemplary. We truly enjoyed sitting on lanai each morning.

Owner's Response: Hi Timothy, I really wasn't sure if you had gotten my request asking for a review. It seemed like the program wasn't allowing me to ask. But here you are, Timothy thanks for taking your time to write a review. As your are probably aware that most people that are looking for a vacation go to the reviews and are influenced by the reviews they read. So both Patti & I greatly appreciate your review. We do hope if your ever back this way you'll call us first to book another vacation. Sincerely Patti & Ron
