About Dan

Greetings potential renter. I have owned at this property since 1991 and have fully enjoyed the time I get to spend here. I purchased a second 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 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, not to mention benefits from the beautiful grounds and fellow owners of Runaway Bay.

What makes this condo unique

New upgrades completed for 2016!!!! 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'!

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 :)

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!
