About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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 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).
