Runaway Beach Club Resort is a luxury family resort located right in the center of Florida's tourist area, only 3 miles from Walt Disney World Resort. Tropically landscaped, this gated community consists of charming two-story pastel Key West-style villas surrounding a central fountained lagoon. Guests may stroll or jog along the scenic waterside path. Two heated pools provide swimming and sunning options for the whole family --- a South Beach themed adult pool plus a fun, colorful child-friendly pool with water features and zero-depth entry. A hot tub, located adjacent to the pools, provides a romantic setting for couples. Accented by flickering Hawaiian-style torches and gracious palm trees, the extensive deck area surrounds both pools and overlooks the beautifully landscaped lagoon. Plenty of comfortable lounge chairs and umbrella tables are provided throughout the deck area. Seasonally, fun and entertainment is provided with poolside activities, and refreshments may be purchased at a tiki bar gazebo.
The resort’s clubhouse contains a modern fitness center, indoor basketball court (fee applies), and a TV lounge area with public computer. WiFi is available throughout the entire complex. A shuttle service provides regularly scheduled transportation to Walt Disney World. There is NO additional Daily Resort Access Fee.
This smoke-free, spacious 1503 sq ft condo has the largest of the 2-bedroom floor plans in the resort. It reflects a coastal flair with cottage-style furnishings, beach themed décor, and a color scheme of soft sunshine with shades of clear sky and deep ocean blues. Ceiling fans in every room offer the feel of a shore breeze. An open living and dining room with 20-ft cathedral ceilings offers ample space for eating, lounging, and getting together with family and friends. A loft overlooks the living room, offering an additional area for socializing. The gourmet kitchen has high-end appliances, granite counter tops with breakfast bar and is fully equipped with cookware and tableware. A large dining table seats four comfortably.
The roomy master bedroom has a king-sized bed, and the spacious master bath is complete with garden tub. The guest bedroom contains a queen-sized bed plus a single/twin-sized bed, to accommodate various family needs. The loft holds a queen sleeper sofa and foosball table. Two queen sleeper sofas in the living room offer additional sleeping options. Both bedrooms offer huge walk-in closets, providing easy storage of luggage. A large hall bath is conveniently located near the guest bedroom. A full-sized washing machine and dryer are included in the amenities within the condo. A large 43-inch flat screen television is found in the living room. A 40-inch flat screen television is located in the loft, master bedroom and guest bedroom; and a DVD player provides entertainment for the whole family in the living area. As a 2nd floor unit, this condo provides peace and tranquility without noise from neighbors above.
We are a married couple (and grandparents) who live in Northwest Florida.
We bought this condo because of the colorful Key West style villas, the friendly, family atmosphere, and the proximity to Disney World.
