THE SHADY MANGO - ANNA MARIA'S MOST CHARMING COASTAL COTTAGE!

Anna Maria Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Historical 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, in 'Green' Village, near Sugar Sand Beaches

The Shady Mango is an exquisite vintage cottage which has been completely redesigned to maintain all the charm of yesterday with today’s modern conveniences. The beautiful Brazilian teak flooring, white bead-board wainscoted walls and cabinetry, solid quartz countertops, Antique Delft tiles, circa 1650, and romantic fireplace create a feeling of luxurious simplicity

In keeping with The Shady Mango’s old Florida charm, the cozy interiors feature warm colors and cheerful prints mixed with antiques, old wicker and whimsical accessories. Vintage and new Claire Murray rugs underfoot and comfortable furnishings invite you to relax and unwind.

The expansive master suite is painted sunny yellow and a smaller guest room in soothing tones of blue, each having a connecting bath. The centerpiece of the master bath is a romantic claw foot slipper tub of cast iron which is reminiscent of a by-gone era.

French doors in the master suite open onto a shady cabana overlooking the expansive and beautifully landscaped backyard oasis with twenty-two tall areca palms and mature mango trees providing plenty of shade and privacy.

The spacious deck and roof extension form a peaceful cabana which overlooks the large heated swimming pool and spa with a navy blue bottom and waterfall. Ensconced among the 22 areca palms and mango trees, the serene pool setting has an aura of enchantment.

The cottage is shingled with cedar shakes, embellished by white gable supports and capped by a white tin roof. Framed by a white picket fence and a lovely custom flower garden The Shady Mango truly is Anna Maria’s most charming coastal cottage!

What makes this cottage unique

We love the fact that Anna Maria Island is one of the few remaining areas with the old Florida charm. It's a place you can visit with your entire family and everyone from the oldest to the youngest will be able to have a wonderful time!

An Anniversary to Remember

  • 5 of 5
The Shady Mango is a destination, a celebration and a representation of a life of leisure. The accommodations are spotless. The decor is whimsical but tasteful. Upon entering the back garden, you feel like you are in paradise, among the tropical trees and a pool that is reminiscent of the Caribbean. We celebrated our Silver Anniversary with our friends, family and our two boys. The location brings a sense of serenity, community and is centrally located to two beautiful bodies of water that are easily accessible by a leisurely walk, a short bicycle ride, or a easily rented golf cart. Don't miss the sunset. It might be the highlight of your trip! Love this place and love the owners even more! We guarantee that you will not be disappointed with The Shady Mango, it's convenient location, or it's charming owners!

Thank you again for choosing to become a treasured member of The Shady Mango Family! Love and hugs, Angela

Beautiful and relaxing

We had the best time at the Shady Mango!! The cottage is so cute! We had everything we needed to relax! The pool is gorgeous and the landscaping is incredible! Perfect location also, you are so close to restaurants, shops, the beach, and pier! Not a day went by that people didn't stop out front and take pictures of the cottage!

Vacationing with a friend

  • 5 of 5
The Shady Mango is exactly like the photos on the web site. It is charming, the backyard garden is beautiful and very private. The Shady Mango is located close to everything, plus there is a trolley every 20 minutes to take you around the island. The Beach is just right down the street. A 5 minute walk.
The property is extremely clean and well maintained. The owner is a phone call away; always willing to help
There are so many good restaurants and wonderful shopping. we loved the Sandbar and Skinny's
