About Terry

from Michigan, vacation on Anna Maria Island for years.

Terry purchased this condo in 2015

Why Terry chose Bradenton Beach

We have been coming to the Island since early 1990's , always staying at Runaway Bay, Decided to buy a unit after the many years of renting. We closed on this ground floor unit 1 April 2015. First thing I, a cleaning fanatic, was to clean and shine every inch of our unit. We are planning on making some cosmetic changes in future.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is located on the ground floor which makes it so easy to carry in your luggage or groceries. No need to worry about stairs if you have difficulty walking up or down stairs! It has a nice relaxing view of the pond and it is nice to sit outside on the patio and enjoy a drink

Wonderful Stay!

Great location for a family vacation. Bradenton Beach is a beautiful place and Runaway Bay did not disappoint. The owner was great and checked on us many times. I'm looking forward to staying here again!

Relaxing time at Runaway Bay # 135

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in Unit 135 and it is as described by Terry in her listing. A very comfortable unit with all of the amenities needed to enjoy our time with no stress! Furniture, beds, bedding, all very nice. Beach towels, chairs, noodles and the kitchen is fully stocked with any utensils that one might need. The unit also had excellent internet service and a large selection of television channels.

I would also mention that both the beach towels and the bathroom towels were plush and fluffy and much nicer than most hotels :).

Bring your clothing and a few toiletries and you will be all set! We loved the easy access of the ground floor unit. The property itself is well kept and the grounds have many lovely flowers and trees. The pool is large, heated and enjoyable. An easy walk across the street to the beach. The free trolley stops right at the Runaway entrance and can be taken to many spots including the Publix for groceries. You can walk or hop on the trolley to many eateries. Bridge Street has a wonderful creperie. The Beachhouse has all varieties of food and is a nice spot to enjoy the sunset. Island Times on Bridge Street is good for drinks, munchies and music. We came to relax and that is what we did. We would certainly come back and would recommend Runaway Bay and this unit. Terry was very nice to deal with and all of her check in instructions, etc. were easy to follow. Enjoy your stay if you end up in these very comfortable accomodations!

Glorious Vacation on a Budget

  • 5 of 5

What impressed me the most about staying on Anna Maria Island was how affordable it was! Renting the condo allowed us to cook our own meals which saved us a bundle. There was a local Dollar Tree nearby for anything we forgot. Access to the washer and dryer saved us from the expense of a laundromat. We didn't have to drive to the beach since it was so close. For anyone who wants to have a fantastic vacation that won't break the bank Terry's condo is the answer. After all, the sky and the sea and the sand are FREE.

A breath taking condo on a beautiful island.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a getaway place to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and oh boy did we find it. Upon opening the door we immediately fell in love with this beautiful beach feeling condo. Everything was spacious and ready for our use. The master bedroom was large with plenty of storage and ladies there are closets galore so go ahead and bring your outfits. The kitchen is nicely updated and has all the amenities you'll need to make meals or snacks, then throw everything in the dishwasher. After all, you are on vacation. There's a washer and dryer so when you do have wet towels or dirty laundry, in they go. And did I tell you about the screened in porch? Yes, you can eat meals at the large dining table but the porch offers a table, chairs and a ceiling fan to cool you off where you can eat, sit and relax or play cards, etc. Then there's this closet filled with all kinds of goodies for your outdoor enjoyment. Beach chairs and umbrella, coolers, sand shovels etc, a bbq grill which we took full advantage of, and so many more things. Just bring your clothes, toiletries, your selections of specialty food items and you'll be at home in this beautiful condo. Take advantage of the pool, the dock leading to the water where you can sit and enjoy the scenery with your beverage of choice. We loved every minute we were here and are planning on two weeks next year. Get yourselves a calendar and make your reservations soon because this is Florida at its best. #135 Runaway Bay Condo, Anna Maria Island should be your next vacation spot because I know it's mine. The island itself is very family friendly, loaded with restaurants and specialty shops.There scenery is gorgeous and going to the beach to watch the sunset was any amazing nature show. We loved walking and seeing what the town had to offer. The beach itself was also very family friendly, the locals are very welcoming and helpful to find the right "secret" jewels when it came to restaurants.

Don't worry if you get a rainy day because there is plenty of entertainment that you can enjoy in the condo from, board games, DVD player, books, etc.

There is plenty of grocery stores, different types of restaurants from very affordable to more expensive. We did a lot of day trips also like to the Florida Aquarium (5*) in Tampa, Port Saint Lucy (to visit family) Miami (to visit a friend) and to the Lion Safari(5*)in West Palm Beach. Over all we fell in love with the condo, the island and the people.
