Runaway Bay is a great place to be. Walking distance to the beach, to the bay, to the free trolley stop and to restaurants. On site pool, tennis courts and plenty of walking opportunities. Unit 192 is on the bay side. Views of boats, birds and water!! The unit is furnished with everything I needed. Clean and attractive. Newer appliances. Bathrooms are updated- master has a walk-in shower. I didn't want to leave. But I'll be back!!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo which was very clean and comfortable just two blocks from the beach. This is a well kept complex with a pool that is heated and very easy to enjoy since it is quiet. Or, sit on the dock overlooking the bay while reading a book.
Publix and a number of shops are just across the street which makes it very convenient. It is easy to use the Manatee avenue bridge although avoid the weekends if you leave the island because backups are part of getting on and off the island. Having the trolley transport you around the island is super and do check out the farmer's markets at Coquina beach.
Our unit had everything we needed while we explored the island. Check out Holmes Beach for entertainment in the late afternoon and watch the sunset. Enjoyed The Ringling in Sarasota and walked the bird sanctuaries for exercise. If you enjoy seafood there are plenty of restaurants with views of the water and beaches on and off the island.
A good place to get away from the cold and snow and just relax since there are multiple beaches and parking is free and plentiful. Thank you.
