About Dan, your Host!
Greetings potential renter. I own several units at this property since 1991 and have fully enjoyed the time I get to spend here. I also own a 2br unit just a few steps down from this unit as well! 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.
Why I chose Anna Maria Island
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 (with private beach access), not to mention benefits from the beautiful grounds and fellow owners of Runaway Bay.
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'!

This property was exactly what we expected based on the description and photos. It was clean, well- maintained, and equipped with all of the essentials for our stay. The owner was very responsive to all of our inquiries and checked on us soon after our arrival. The condo's location and amenities suited us perfectly during our trip to the island. We highly recommend this property to all.

Thanks Dan!! We really enjoyed our week in your One-Bedroom condo at Runaway Bay! It's a beautiful, clean, well maintained condo equipped with everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. Having a washer and dryer right in the unit was awesome. The pool was GREAT...large with cool water which was SO refreshing on a hot Florida summer day, and the beach was a quick stroll across the street...we took advantage with long daily morning walks! We fell in love with the quaint Bradenton Beach/Anna Maria Island area with the great restaurants and fun entertainment, cute little shops, bike rentals, beautiful sunsets on the beach, etc., so much that we are actually considering retiring there next year....perhaps we will be neighbors! Thanks again Dan....you were great to work with!!! Sue and Mark, Canfield, OH

This is the first time we've stayed in Dan's one bedroom condo.It has everything you need. Fully equipped kitchen, laundry, a lot of towels, clean, nice view, quiet. Very close to the beach. Dan was great to work with and was very prompt in getting back to us with answers to our questions. There is so much to see and do in the area. We enjoyed our stay.

Our stay at Dan's condo in Runaway Bay, was our first and it was incredible!! The one bedroom condo is beautifully decorated with bright and cheerful colors. It was very clean, spacious and the natural lighting is a great way to wake up in the morning! Working with Dan for our first family vacation was a breeze. He was always quick to respond, very helpful & informative and provided a great list of activities and delicious restaurants to enjoy on the island. Our friends' family stayed in Dan's two bedroom condo and it was also beautifully decorated, very clean and spacious. Dan made organizing a dual family vacation stress-free and very affordable for the excellent memories we came back home with. Thanks so much Dan!

This is the third time we've stayed in Dan's one bedroom condo. The unit is spacious, bright and well decorated. The condo has everything you need (a well stocked kitchen and laundry room, as well as beach towels, sand toys, etc., for enjoying the beach). One of the best reasons to stay in this condo at Runaway Bay is you have all the comforts of home and right across the street is the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. There are many great restaurants in the area. We highly recommend Dan's one bedroom condo.

My husband and I just spent two weeks at Dan's one bedroom condo, and found it to be all that the reviews said it was. It is very clean, comfortable and well stocked. There is a nice view from the balcony which we enjoyed quite a bit. You can flip flop from your condo to the beach or the pool within a few minutes. Publix and Fresh Market are both close if you want to cook or grill, or enjoy the many diverse restaurants up and down the island. Dan provides great customer service and we were very pleased with our experience.

Glad you enjoyed your stay, and let the official countdown to next years vacation start!
We vacation every year in Bradenton Beach - Anna Maria Island. We have rented several places and Dan's condo was the best. It looks just like the pictures on VRBO. It was on the top floor of a two-story building. It was very clean and comfortable. The complex was very quite and peaceful.
The bed was king size bed with a thick pillow top, very comfortable. The bedroom had plenty of storage, as well as, a flat screen TV in the armoire. The living room was roomy had plenty of seating. The sofa was a pull out perfect for kid(s).
There is a screen in porch off the living room with bedroom access too. It had two rocking chairs that faced a small lagoon with a fountains features. Very relaxing and peaceful. There was a full size upgraded kitchen with granite countertops and fully equipped. A stacked washer and dryer. The condo was conveniently located to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. You can ride your bike to Bridge Street in 10 minutes with side walks the entire way, or hop on the free Island trolley.
I would highly recommend staying at either of Dan's condos at Runaway Bay. Even though it is not located directly on the beach it is a quick 5 minute walk to the beach, and extremely affordable. Dan was easy to work with and extremely responsive to answer any questions we had before we booked and during our stay. It's a great place to stay. 5 Stars!

DAN,S 1 BEDROOM CONDO WAS VERY CLEAN AND JUST AS THE PICTURES SHOW,FOR US THE HIGHLIGHT OF RUNAWAY BAY WAS THE LARGE HEATED SALT WATER POOl. THE BEACH WAS NICE AND CLEAN,AND WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE, WE STAYED THE SECOND WEEK IN SEPT,2015,AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS COMFORTABLE, AND WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIS CONDO . THE ONLY REASON WE DID NOT PUT A FIVE STAR RATING WAS THAT IT IS NOT BEACH FRONT AS WE THOUGHT.
