About the property

2 Bedrms, 2 Bathrms, First Floor, Steps to the Beach, 1100 Sq ft, corner unit!

Welcome to Your Anna Maria Island Paradise! GROUND FLOOR!

Vacation on a tranquil island embraced by the warm Florida sun. This quaint paradise getaway, known as Anna Maria Island, is complete with the 'Old Florida Style' charm. Seven miles of warm-white sandy beaches on the Gulf of Mexico to swim, walk, relax, and collect shells.

Runaway Bay is a lovely vacation resort 100 yds. from the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We're located on beautiful 13 acres grounds that include the largest heated swimming pool on the island, tennis courts, recreation room, sauna, exercise equipment, shuffleboard and a fishing pier.

Mother Nature puts on a nightly show as the sun makes its descent. Enjoying the exquisite sunsets is one of the most magical parts of island life. Free trolley service, with a stop in front of the complex, can transport you to all the attractions on the island.

This non-smoking unit is over 1100 sq ft (2 bedrooms, 2 baths) with a screened in lanai which is quiet and peaceful. It is conveniently located close to Sarasota Airport (20 minutes) and the Tampa (TPA) Airport (45 minutes). Also, close to major Florida attractions including; Busch Gardens (45 minutes), Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World (2 hours).

Bradenton Beach just across the street.

This resort was voted best resort by Bradenton Harold for the past two years and has been featured in many national publications. This is a wonderful year round destination full of onsite amenities.

We will not rent this unit out to more than one party at a time.

About Terry

from Michigan, vacation on Anna Maria Island for years.

Terry purchased this condo in 2015

Why Terry chose Anna Maria Island

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! 4.8/5 -

My FAVORITE place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful vacation spot! Newly re-done condo, super cute and clean! Great pool close by and right across the street from a gorgeous beach! Perfect spot on the island, close to so many great places and has a trolley stop right in front.

Gorgeous Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for a relaxing weekend on AMI. Walking distance to the trolley stop is key! Heated pool and the sauna is a bonus. Wouldn't stay anywhere but #135!!

Loved the condo!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo, everything was clean and organized. Rented the unit for 3 weeks, but due to my husband having Dementia and my having to call 911 daily, we left on day 10. Needless to say, I would have loved to stay since the condo and location were wonderful!

Great place to stay! Very roomy and clean!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at 135 RunAway Bay. Very clean, roomy, pet friendly, and located close to everything! There is a trolley stop and private walk way to the beach right in front of the complex. The only downside for this complex was that there was no hot tub but the pool was very large, clean and heated with plenty of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. Terry was very easy to work with and got back with us immediately with any concerns or questions we had! I have been coming to Florida for the past 10 years for Christmas and this was the best trip and I highly recommend this place to anyone!

Very Nice Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a couple of other Condos at Runaway Bay and this was one of the best. There is all you need in the way of equipment (even a teapot !! for us Brits) and the condo was very clean and well maintained. A phone was available which we found useful and could speak to Terry the owner if need be. The white sandy beach is only a few minutes walk away and beach chairs, etc.., are also provided. There is a superb large heated outdoor swimming pool on the site if you just want to relax and cool off. The weather in October/November was warm ( mid 80's ) and not humid a great time to visit. Terry was most helpful from our arrival to leaving. Would certainly recommend as a holiday apartment and hope to return in the future

Excellent Last Minute Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Fed up with cold British weather we decided to have a last minute break and find some sunshine. We certainly did temperatures were in the 90's all of our stay! Loved Anna Maria Island and the location of the condo was perfect for the beach.

Terry has supplied a trolley to wheel all the beach paraphernalia across to the sand, such a good idea.The condo was very nice and clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. Ideal for our holiday. Terry was also available on the phone if need be. We hope to return and recommend it to everyone! Alison and Chris, UK.
