Ready to run away? Seeking an escape to paradise? Come run away to Runaway Bay; an award-winning condominium development beside white sand beaches and the aquamarine Gulf of Mexico on dreamy Anna Maria Island. This stylish, 2br/2ba ground floor unit in Runaway Bay is just steps from the bay and kayak launch, and only one building away from the crosswalk to your private, 6-mile stretch of beach alongside the sparkling, sapphire Gulf. The fully updated condo has a screened-in, furnished patio and direct access to a large backyard/common area with grills and peekaboo views of the bay through lush mangroves. The unit is close to the gym, fishing pier, tennis/pickleball courts, picnic area, and swimming pool (largest heated saltwater pool on the island!) Amenities abound here at Runaway Bay! Living Spaces: This comfortable and convenient ground floor unit has new luxury laminate flooring the color of weathered oak. The open-concept kitchen/living/dining area makes for easy entertaining. The walls are a soothing warm neutral hue. The new living room sofa and loveseat are the color of beach sand and are adorned with coastal-themed accent pillows. The sofas are nicely arranged around a coffee table and rustic, distressed entertainment cabinet with a SmartTV. The living room sofa is a Queen XL sleeper sofa. Tranquil coastal ambiance is in the details of this professionally designed living room; the matching ocean-blue glazed lamps, seascape-themed fine wall art, velvet blue armchair in the corner, stylish drapes. This is a comfortable space for conversation, cocktails, cozying up to read, or kicking back to stream your favorite shows and movies. Sliding glass doors from the living room open out to the screened-in lanai with access to the backyard. Kitchen: The fully-equipped kitchen has French white cabinets, laminate countertops, a 4-burner electric range, a full-size fridge/freezer combo with ice maker, a microwave, dishwasher, oven, and double basin sink. Plenty of counter space! The breakfast bar, which offers seating for three, is a great spot to sip your morning coffee or fresh-squeezed citrus juice. Additional items include drip coffee maker & Keurig, toaster, blender, etc. Just off the kitchen is a washer and dryer. Dining: The dining area has an elegant new formal dining table with seating for four, below a coastal/rustic, edison bulb-style chandelier.

Work out in the gym, fish off the pier, or tie up at the private boat dock. Dining, entertainment and nightlife are just a few moments' stroll from this convenient ground-floor unit. The beaches of Anna Maria flaunt the prettiest seashells in Florida. Anna Maria is also a top US location for rare seashells. The Neighborhood: Nestled on the Bay of Anna Maria Island, and just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, this ground-floor condo truly is a little spot of coastal heaven. Start your day watching sunrise over the bay on the community dock; end your day watching a stunning sunset on the beach. The common grassy area in the back also is a great space for kids to play. Set up some yard games! Swim in the turquoise Gulf of Mexico where dolphins play daily. Bring your fishing gear to cast a line off the pier, or rent a boat to get out on deep water and fish. Walk to 14 different restaurants! Prime location offers an easy stroll to boutiques, entertainment, grocery market, and pharmacy. Nearby are boat rentals, sunset cruises, as well as jet ski, bike, paddleboard, scooter, and kayak rentals. This seven-mile barrier island is Florida’s best-kept secret. There’s a saying here; “when you're on Anna Maria Island, you don’t go to the beach… because on Anna Maria Island, you’re already at the beach.” The Island in the Sun is Florida’s best-kept secret. With Gulf temperatures averaging 84 degrees and 360 days of sunshine per year the surrounding waters of AMI are known as “the nursery” because of the large number of dolphins that raise their young here. With the island’s laid-back charm and leisurely unhurried living, speed limits are restricted to 25 mph - 35 mph throughout most of the island. This tropical paradise also offers free trolley service for both tourists and residents. Be sure to visit Anna Maria City Pier! Built in the early 1900s, this 700-foot-long pier provides a great vantage point for watching sunrises and sunsets, bird watching, dolphin watching, and provides views of Tampa Bay and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. You can also fish off this pier. Bridge Street Pier, located on the southern end of the island in Bradenton Beach, honors the past while still embracing the future with its ‘Old Florida’ charm mixed with new restaurants, shops, galleries, and more. Enjoy the architecture and charm of Historic Green Village. Most of the restored buildings now run on solar panels and other modern energy-saving methods. The island, surrounded by water and interlaced with canals, is host to many amazing sea creatures - among them are Loggerhead Turtles, Manatees, and dolphins. Loggerhead turtles are a protected species and we have the Turtle Watch - a group of wonderful folks who search the beaches for nests and protect those nests until the eggs hatch (it is illegal for anyone to tamper with the nests). Manatees are also protected here in Florida - they are commonly seen in the summer when they leave their winter warm waters and migrate south.
