FABULOUS FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many quality properties through VRBO over the years and Shady Palms is the best one, hands down. The location on the Gulf is fantastic. We were able to set up chairs and umbrellas in the morning and leave them out all day as we went back and forth from the house to the beach to attend to the various needs of our children (ages 3 and 5). I cannot overstate the convenience of not having to drive to the beach or even pick up our stuff when it was time for lunch, bathroom, drinks, etc. Moreover, the house is located in a block of similar houses with limited public access to the beach, so it was never crowded right out front, and we visited over spring break which is typically one of the busiest times of the year. The showers (yes two) accessed from outside and connected to the garage made rinsing off kids easy. The shady back yard was a nice escape from the sun.

The location of the house on the island is superb. It is one block away from a small commercial district which has a few restaurants, an ice cream shop, a hardware store, a bike rental store, a convenience store, and a few other shops. We did not have a car and didn't need one. Everything we needed except groceries was within easy walking distance. If you pick up your groceries on the way in or don't mind taking the island trolley, groceries are no problem.

The house itself is ridiculously spacious for only two bedrooms. We had plenty of room for visiting grandparents and friends, and parking is not an issue. The pictures in the listing are accurate. I imagine that this house is represtentative of what most of the Florida coast was like fifty years ago, which must have been wonderful.

In short, if you're not into the hotel/condo thing and like a more laid-back setting fending for yourself, I can't think of a better rental on Anna Maria Island than Shady Palms. If we ever go back I hope it's still available.

BEACH PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Simply said: AWESOME! Cindy has a fantastic family home they are willing to share with those who appreciate a true beach home. From the moment we arrived, the home provided every comfort we desired. The large living space provides an excellent retreat from the day's events. The super sized back yard is simply amazing. Large palm and pine trees line the completely shaded back yard leading to the white sands of the Gulf waters. The sunset viewed directly from the back yard is simply to die for. We will return to Shady Palms every chance we get. Thank you Cindy for such a wonderful vacation spot!

VERY NICE BEACH FRONT HOUSE.

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island. We selected this house because of its proximity to the beach. I don't think you can get any closer. The shade/sun division is perfect so no need to get all lobsterized. The house is very nice and well equipped. The location in town is also great as you can walk to shops and restaurants. It's only a few short blocks to some great dining. We plan to come back next year. Not for the "party hearty" set. Bring the kids and let them roam. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Cindy!

VACATION BEFORE SCHOOL STARTED

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time staying here and for good reason. We don't know of a more perfect place than this to stay at. It's directly on the beach. You wake up in the morning and eat breakfast while looking out at the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Other than food and your basic personal necessities, nothing else is needed. The house is equipped with more than enough, including plenty of kitchen items, towels and sheets, and a garage full of beach toys. We had a very enjoyable time here and it was the best thing for us to do the week before school started. We would definitely recommend it to all people, of all ages. Best of all, Cindy and Gay are such amazing people. Thank you for this opportunity. See you soon hopefully!

THANKSGIVING AT THE SHADY PALMS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Shady Palms the week of Thanksgiving and it was perfect. We live local and have a full appreciation of how great our beaches and fabulous Florida sunsets are over the Gulf of Mexico. Instead of traveling, we just drive 10 miles from our home and enjoy.

Shady Palms accommodated our friends and relatives stopping by for visits and meals. The kitchen is well-equipped and has beautiful dishes for great dinner gatherings. There is nothing like good food and good company enjoying spectacular sunsets in a comfortable and relaxing environment. We will certainly visit often.

Thanks so much Cindy.

BEST VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Such an amazing experience! The house is beautiful, cozy and comfortable, with every amenity you will need for your stay, including beach toys in the garage! The pictures are a good reflection of the property.

The location is like a dream! Our young kids could not get enough of playing in the large shaded yard, chasing squirrels and sitting in the hammock. Every morning we woke up and looked out the window at dolphins swimming by and then ran down to the beach to see them closer! The water was calm and perfect for the youngsters.

We felt like we were in our own little slice of heaven. Coffee in the morning on the under the trees and wine in the afternoon while enjoying the ocean view and breezes.

The owner is very friendly and helpful, we would absolutely stay here again, and have already recommended it to several of our friends!!! We had the best time!
Thank you Cindy!!
