About Michael Bartone

I took and early retirement from American Express Travel Service several years ago where I was a Global Director for Business Travel. Just prior to my retirement I had the opportunity to visit Anna Maria Island and immediately fell in love with its pristine beaches and old Florida charm. I purchased my first one bedroom condo and subsequently purchased 3 other condos all at Runaway Bay. I now own 1 one bedroom condos and 2 two bedroom condos at Runaway Bay.I have been blessed to be living on Anna Maria Island when I purchased a home approximately 3 minutes from Runaway Bay.

I pride myself in taking personal attention to the furnishings and amenities in my condos. I currently co own a meeting planning business, so I continue to be involved in many facets of the hospitality business. Throughout my career I have traveled all over the world and I have high exceptions of the accommodations that I stay in. I have these same expectations for all of my condos.

I am also on the Board of Directors of Runaway Bay and currently live two blocks from Runaway Bay.

Michael Bartone purchased this condo in 2003

Why Michael Bartone chose Anna Maria Island

I have visited many beach resorts all over the world and I can assure you that you will love our fabulous beach,our 13 acres of beautiful views and gardens.

What makes this condo unique

This is the only true resort on Anna Maria Island. The complex sits between the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay of Sarasota on the narrowest part of the island. The 13 acres are full of amenities and lush landscaping.

Beautifully Beachy!

I can't say enough about the beautiful condo. It was clean,beautifully decorated,and very well appointed. I really like that the owner takes care of it and lives very close by, in case of any problems. I definitely plan on returning next year..

Three weeks in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO and the property exceeded our expectations!

Great location on Anna Maria Island, two blocks from Gulf of Mexico beach and the free

trolley that runs length of island.

Unit appeared to be recently, tastefully decorated. All new appliances.

Excellent mattress.

Spacious bathrooms.

Beautifully landscaped pool area.

We enjoyed balcony off living room for coffee and cocktails.

Any minor issues were promptly addressed by our attentive, friendly hosts.

A gem!

Accommodations that exceeded my expections two years in a row

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that I have stayed in this condo on Anna Maria Island. In addition to an excellent location this condo has it all. The unit is very well appointed and extremely comfortable. I have been coming to Anna Maria for over 16 years and the last two years stay has been my favorite.

The owners of the rental lives nearby and he was very responsive to any of our questions or needs.

WONDERFUL HOST, IMMACULATE PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Michael Bartone's duplex/apartment for a week and were treated like royalty. Michael was there to greet us and give us the "tour" of the place. He couldn't have been nicer, was so helpful if we needed anything during our stay. Our unit was beautifully decorated, immaculate and very comfortable. We felt right at home. The private and quaint backyard had a heated pool and hot tub for us to use anytime, and the fully equipped kitchen had everything we needed if we wanted to stay home and cook. The property itself is steps away from the beach (and the bay) and is located in a beautiful neighborhood. We have already booked with Michael (while we were still there) for our stay next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mary Beth for the wonderful compliments. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I have tried to make our value proposition significantly different than many of the other properties on Anna Maria Island. Most importantly I am a full time resident of Anna Maria so I am available to assist all of my guests should they have any questions or special needs. Most of the properties on this island are serviced and maintained by property management companies which cannot provide the same level of individual attention to detail and servicing.

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5

Over the years I have rented many vacation rentals and I must say, this was by far the very best of all!!! This home is just as beautiful as the pictures depict and decorated with excellent taste.

The home is very clean and it has everything you could possibly need.

The location is very close to the beach and you can see the water from the home. If you get tired of the beach just come back to the home and enjoy your beautiful pool and spa!

The owner is the nicest man and goes out of his way to make your stay perfect.

Please don't miss an opportunity to stay in this beautiful home for your next stay, I guarantee you won't be sorry.

My stay was from Feb.6-13,2016
