Why Philip and Ann Horning chose Anna Maria Island

Being a native Floridian and having visited almost every beach area in the state, we knew without a doubt that Anna Maria Island and Runaway Bay Resort was the best Florida had to offer.

Great summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was very nice and homey. My kids slept on the pull out couch and my husband and I slept in the master bedroom. We played cards on the patio and the kitchen table was great for board games and sitting down together for dinner. The kitchen came fully equipped (we only needed to buy groceries) and the extra towels in the bathroom came in handy. Large closet space and the condo is near the pool and the beach. I was worried about walking to the beach but it is literally across the street so it was a great stay. If you want a peaceful atmosphere, this is the place to go. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby too. First time staying on Anna Maria Island and it was great. Loved it.

Loved my stay!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the clean, beachy feel of the condo and its convenience to the beach and restaurants. We had all the kitchen and bath amenities we needed to cook full meals and use the beach and pool. The unit looked very well kept and was bright and cheerful but also quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. I spent a lot of time coming and going to the beach and pool and I loved having an Indian restaurant in walking distance! I took drives in either direction and I must say the location of the condo is great for seeing the whole set of islands. I would come back to this unit every year if I could.

Wonderful, clean, and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this apt. After finding it and having a great stay, I just keep coming back. It is clean, and comfortable. The beach access is just across the street. The owner has a closet full of beach chairs/umbrella, and boogie board. It's a short 20 min drive to get to Mote Aquarium. I love the area so much. The sunsets are beautiful. Also, the owner and manager are always very easy to work with. On this last trip, we got in after the office closed, but we had all the instructions necessary to pick up the keys.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this condo many times and hope to go many more. It is delightful and so well maintained. Being there brings joy to our hearts every time we go. My daughter calls it her "healing place". Its so restful, close to everything that is important on vacation and it's such a good price we looks forward to going as often as we can.
