Greetings potential renter. I have owned at this property since 1991 and have fully enjoyed the time I get to spend here. I purchased a second unit in 2014! My family and I stay in the units several times a year, which is why it's important to me to keep it updated and clean. We pride ourselves in having one of the cleanest and most functional units around, and our past guest reviews back this up!
I have rented this unit out to dozens of singles, couples, families, and organizations throughout the years, many of which are repeat renters. I look forward to working with you, and sharing my treasured 'home away from home' with you.
Dan purchased this condo in 1991
I chose to buy this home due to its convenience, beauty, and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. Its located just 25 minutes from the Sarasota airport, and is walking distance of many shoreline restaurants and amenities on Gulf Drive.
There is beach access within directly across the street from the unit, not to mention benefits from the beautiful grounds and fellow owners of Runaway Bay.
New upgrades completed in 2014!!!! Some of the highlights include King Bed in master; Queen and Twin bed in second room and hardwood floors throughout. Also, new bedding and new couches in the living room (with queen pullout bed). Be the first to take advantage of our continued re-investments!
In addition, i promise to you open and quick communication. I bet you'll be surprised how quickly I respond to your inquiry, go ahead time me. . . I bet I get back to you quicker than you can say 'Lifes a Beach'!
First time in Anna Maria and it was an amazing time. The location is perfect, and the condo is a block away from the beach. Super clean and cute place to stay. Perfect for families, girls trip, or a romantic getaway. I will stay there in a heartbeat on my next vacation to Anna Maria! Dan is a great guy to work with as well!
Having never booked a vacation in a condo instead of a hotel I didn't really know what to expect. I was so impressed with everything from the condo itself to cute little island. My husband took care of the booking and he was thrilled at how easy it was to get in contact with Dan and hash out all the details. We stayed in his two bedroom unit and absolutely loved it! The bed was super comfy and the place was spotless! I loved having the little balcony to go sit and have my morning coffee. We loved having the pool and the beach is just across the street. I even used the gym a few times. We had so much fun at the beach bars and restaurants on the island and did lots of wandering around! Will definitely recommend it to friends and can't wait for our next trip!
Forget the hotel, this place is great! I've worked with Dan on my last two trips to the island; the VRBO site (and Dan) really takes the hassle out of planning a vacation. This place feels like a home away from home and I would recommend it to anyone looking to getaway for some R&R!
My wife and I stayed two weeks in one of Dans beautiful units at Runaway Bay. It was our first time doing a VRBO vacation rental and we were very pleased with the whole process. Dan was very responsive to all of our needs. . .its as though he read our minds b/c all of his emails were proactively thorough. No need to go back and forth with questions, as he lays everything out very detailed initially so there are no surprises. We are hoping to book with him in his 1 bedroom unit this summer, since it will only be the wife and I this time and do no need the extra space his 2br unit offered us this winter.
Also. . . you get what you pay for! We stayed in a lower end unit at Runaway Bay in the past through their onsite rental office. Sure we saved a few bucks, but did not have the personal attention Dan provided. . .not to mention the unit was not as updated and clean as Dans. You can tell he takes pride in not only the guests experience but his units as well.
My partner and I rented Dan's lovely one-bedroom unit after seeing it on vrbo.com. We'd never done this before and were hesitant but willing to take a chance. And we're SO GLAD we did. Dan's condo was a clean, well-equipped unit and just what we needed for our two-week winter getaway. It was so easy to get around the island either on foot or riding the trolley that we really didn't need our car. The Runaway Bay complex was wonderfully quiet and filled with friendly snowbirds like us. (The only problem was that we had to leave!) Thanks again, Dan, for your professionalism and concern throughout the rental process. We'd definitely recommend this to friends and family.
We had a great time in Dan's condo during our stay.....we're already planning our trip for next year and will bring another family to stay in Dan's other condo, just a few doors down. The unit was very clean and the decor was great - colorful and fun!
We had our newborn with us and Dan recommended ABC rentals, which rents baby equipment, which they even dropped at the condo and it was waiting for us when we arrived.
The pool was great and of course the beach is just across the street and easily accessible.
Such a great time and we can't wait to go back!
There is a free trolley that runs on Gulf Drive, taking you to all of the coastal resturants.
Brand new Bocce Ball (Lawn Bowling) Court installed in 2011, just around the corner from our unit! Tennis Courts, Pool, and Shuffle board located directly on the property which all include lights for night play.
