About Dan

Greetings potential renter, and welcome to Dans Florida Condos listing page for the 2br 2 bath unit. I own several units at this property since 1991 and have fully enjoyed the time I get to spend here. I purchased a second 1BR unit in 2014! 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.

Dan purchased this condo in 1991

Why Dan chose Bradenton Beach

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. Its a great addition to Dans Florida Condos.

There is beach access within directly across the street from the unit, not to mention benefits from the beautiful grounds and fellow owners of Runaway Bay.

What makes this condo unique

New upgrades completed for 2017!!!! Some of the highlights include King Bed in master; Queen and Twin bed in second room and hardwood floors throughout. Also, new bedding and new couches in the living room (with queen pullout bed). Be the first to take advantage of our continued re-investments!

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'!

Dans Florida Condos - Two Bedroom (sleeps 6) in Bradenton Beach at Runaway Bay
average rating of 4.939394 based on 99 reviews

perfect fit

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Dan's 2 bedroom condo/Anna Maria Island was great. I have been coming to AMI since the 80's and have stayed at Runaway Bay a handful of times but this was the first time staying at Dan's condo. My family and I loved it. The condo was clean, comfortable and cozy. It had everything we needed for our family and more (lots of beach supplies).

Dan is a wonderful host and great communicator.

This would definitely be a five star rating based on his condo..but we were a little disappointed with pool closing at 8pm. In the past it has been open later and kids always enjoyed swimming in the eve. Us adults enjoyed gathering by the pool at night and relaxing...this wasn't the case this year which was kind of a bummer but we it didn't ruin our stay and we just spent more time on the beach.

AMI is a beautiful island...which one day we hope to be residents of..we will definitely be back and would absolutely recommend Dan's condo if you come to visit here too!

Owner's Response: Amy. . . Thank you for the kind words. You are not alone regarding wanting more time at our pool, I can't get enough of it either! In order to keep our complex peaceful in the evenings, we do have a policy which closes it at dusk. We are constantly seeking new opportunities to create a unique enjoyable environment for all, so I will certainly bring your comments back to our pool committee for suggestions! Glad you were able to enjoy your trip, and it was a pleasure working with you!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in Dan's Florida Condo, and we are already looking forward to staying here again! The property is exactly as listed (yes, the bedrooms are colorful!). Dan is very easy to work with, he gets back to us via text or e mail quite promptly.

We enjoyed our time here, and even had the opportunity to meet Dan.

If you are looking for a place to stay on beautiful AMI, check out Dan's condo. Dan is very accommodating and will work with you.

Thank you for a glorious two week stay!

Great condo...great location...great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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

Nice, clean and fuctional flat with good location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and functional flat just a short walk to a fantastic beach and close to restaurants. We were 2 adults and 1 child age 12 and this was just what we needed. The beds are fantastic - wanted to take them with us :)

Dan is unbelievably quick to respond to any questions we had and all the rental information and practical information was super. We highly recommend this :)
