Runaway Bay is situated in Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island approximately 2 hours from Orlando, 1 hour from Tampa and 20 minutes from Sarasota. The major cities of the UK have flights into one of these cities. You will be staying in a comfortably appointed, recently refurbished apartment/condo with the use of the largest heated pool on the island, tennis court, gymnasium and sauna. All within 50 yards, through private access, of the beautiful, white sandy Gulf beach.

Anna Maria island just has the best beaches in the world, one of them 50 yards from our condo. It’s always hot and life is just so relaxing there. The restaurants are great value and I play a lot of tennis. What more can I say!
We live near Manchester airport and Delta via Atlanta takes us to our doorstep. Being able to hop on to the beach is fantastic. We had Christmas 2009 there with our daughter who was then living in New Zealand. Christmas Day was starter course on the beach with Champagne, then back to the condo for Turkey. Simply brilliant!
The apartment was wonderfully clean and equipped with everything we needed, including beach noodles, lilo's etc. The pool and tennis court proved a slight distraction from the white sandy beach just across the road where the sunsets were out of this world. The odd bit off fishing off the jetty whilst watching the dolphin and bird life rounded off the amenities on this site. The free trolley bus just outside the main entrance provided us with the opportunity to visit restaurants all over the island and we could both have a glass or two of wine with our meal. We cannot recommend this apartment and the area too highly. Ian and Kathy Baker - Crewe
