This is what our guests think

Just stayed for a week at Runaway Bay and we wish we could have stayed there longer. The condo is very spacious, well laid out and has everything we could possible want and more i.e beach chairs. The complex is great with a large pool and tennis courts and the location is perfect. The beach is just over the road and is very clean and great to walk along. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance and we made use of the free Island Trolley to venture out even further, Finally,Irene was a great host, very welcoming and her emails were very informative and made our stay even better. We hope we are able to return again at some point.

YLAsee - New York City, New York -

We enjoyed our recent stay at Rundaway Bay unit 162. The condo. has a very nice appearance, and is very comfortable and well appointed. It feels like our home away from home, when we go to beautiful Anna Maria Island as we have for the past 14 years. We are looking forward to our next visit to this unit in 2017. Anna Maria Island is truly a paradise with its white sand beaches and many fine restaurants to enjoy. We do not hesitate to recommend this unit.

Irene & Chris Proudlove

Brits Chris & Irene fell in love with Anna Maria Island more than 30 years ago and have happy memories of family holidays there with their two children.
In 2015, their long-held pipe dream of one day owning their own holiday home in Bradenton Beach was finally realized.
One day they’ll get to spend longer there but in the meantime, they are happy to share their home from home with others.
