Reviews

Another Fabulous Stay at Bay Dreamin’ 5/5 Stayed Dec 2018 Jennifer E. This was our second time staying at Bay Dreamin’ and just like the first time we had a wonderful vacation. The condo is exactly as listed, spacious and well decorated. Everything you need to enjoy the beach is provided (beach towels, chairs, sand toys etc). Kitchen is well equipped to make meals at home. Bob from Bungalow Bob’s Vacation Homes is great to work with and provides great recommendations on restaurants and places to see. I’m so glad we had the opportunity this trip to meet him in person. Bay Dreamin’ has all the comforts of home and is directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. Special thanks to the owners for continuing to share their little slice of heaven with us each year. Bay Dreamin’ has become our home away from home! We had a glorious 2.5 week stay and are looking forward to our return. Only 344 more days!!! Submitted Jan 9, 2019 ***** Amazing location and a beautiful apartment! 5/5 Stayed Aug 2018 Elyne W. Amazing location and a beautiful apartment! Visited Bay Dreamin' from the 8th until the 18th. Having visited the island many times, I was pleasantly surprised at the amazing location of the property. Not only was a trolley stop closeby but we were also able to walk with ease to many surrounding restaurants. The apartment was clean, spacious and extremely well equipped! We were able to cook in some nights and enjoyed sitting on the balcony chilling. There was an excellent amount of towels and beach equipment. Due to there being Red Tide it meant that the beach wasn't the easiest of options. The pool located on the resort was excellent and we were able to spend many afternoons enjoying the sunshine. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful apartment and have already recommended it to family members. Submitted Aug 26, 2018 ***** All amenities included! 5/5 Stayed Jul 2018 Julie N. The complex itself was very neat, landscaped and well maintained. Our unit was very updated and neat. The beds and pillows were super comfortable and it was stocked with everything you needed including beach gear which saved us a lot of packing our own items. We did have an issue with the washing machine one day but contacted Bob who came right over and took care of it, he was very nice. I would definitely recommend staying here! Submitted Aug 9, 2018 ***** We loved the property-it was well maintained! 5/5 Stayed Jul 2018 Tracy H. This was our first trip to AMI and we loved it!! The listing was accurate for the condo-it had everything we needed. We loved the location on the Island, close to everything! The beach was a short distance and easily accessible. We loved working with Bob!! He responded right away with anything questions I had, he was a pleasure!! We can't wait to return to the Island and will definitely stay at Bay Dreamin'!!! Submitted Aug 8, 2018 ***** Runaway Bay is a terrific and this unit is stellar 5/5 Stayed Feb 2018 Peggy W.Indianapolis, IN We have stayed at Runaway Bay several times over the last 30 years but this is the first time in this unit, which has been updated and is quite nice. It is well furnished, including W/D and items for beach and pool. However, it was not without issue. The AC was not working properly when we arrived. However, the problem was addressed when we contacted the property managers. Very responsive! To summarize - what a gem! We plan to return next year!! Submitted Mar 12, 2018 ***** I found my Paradise! 5/5 Stayed Dec 2017 Jennifer E. I'm a bit hesitant writing this review, purely for selfish reasons. I want to keep Bay Dreamin as our own little secret. The moment we walked in the door it felt like "Home". Bay Dreamin is beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, and has all the comforts of home right down to a Crock Pot. The owner even provides beach items such as chairs, toys and towels so there is no need to pack them. The complex was great with much to do for any age. We loved the salt water pool that was heated to 87 degrees daily. Much of our time was spent between there and the beach which is only a short walk (less then 3 minutes) and directly across the street. There is a lit traffic walk that will stop traffic so you're safe to cross the road. Ellie, Bob & Suzanne were a pleasure dealing with and were very accommodating from beginning to end. We loved AMI and Bay Dreamin so much that we have already rebooked. Counting down the days until our return to paradise! Submitted Jan 9, 2018 ***** Great place. Great location. 5/5 Stayed Jul 2017 Jeffrey L. The property was great. We could not have asked for a better stay. Thanks Ellie and Bob! Submitted Jul 22, 2017 ***** Wonderful spot to stay 5/5 Stayed Jul 2016 Cindy W. We were recommended by a friend who has gone there multiple years. We immediately fell in love. Have gone two years in a row. They are great to rent from, friendly and helpful. We will return. Thanks for a great vacation spot. Submitted Jun 2, 2017 ***** Ideal Location on AMI 5/5 Stayed Mar 2017 Sandy L.Glencoe, MN Within minutes you could be looking bayside trying to spot a dolphin or enjoying the boat traffic going by or you can walk across the road and be unpacking your beach bag with your toes in the sugar white sand of Anna Maria Island. We had 4 teens so it was ideal location to let them come and go to the beach whenever they wanted. Would also be great for family with younger kids - no need to load up the vehicle to get to the beach. And if you want to leave the property, the trolley stop is at the entrance to RAB. But it's a very doable walk to Bridge Street and all they have to offer (restaurants, bars, shops). And leave the beach toys and towels at home - this place really does have it all! Submitted Apr 3, 2017 ***** Couple over 55 who love to travel! 5/5 Stayed Mar 2017 Colleen T. Our condo was wonderful. We loved the layout and the decor of the place. The only thing I would change is the sofa - it really needs updating as it is very uncomfortable and the cushions are shot. But the location of this condo was excellent for the pool, the beach and walking anywhere you wanted to go! We would surely come again!!!! And Ellie and Suzanne were great to work with and answered all of our question! Submitted Mar 14, 2017 (Manager's note: The furniture has been upgraded since this review).
