Gorgeous venue for our rustic beach wedding

  • 5 of 5
When I first saw the photos of this location online, I thought it might be too fancy for our beach cottage wedding. The cottage interiors looked very well appointed, and we just didn’t know what to expect. We called Deanna on the spur of the moment, as we drove by another property she manages in Madeira Beach. She happened to be at Arbors, so we drove over. When she came out to greet us, her hair was tied back, and she was a bundle of energy. We loved her instantly. She was so proud of the property, showing us around the cottages, the lovely garden path lined with tables, and the spacious backyard. Both she and her husband were maintaining the property, re-staining the deck, re-covering the couches and pillows, painting walls in the 2-story house by the road. Though we looked at other properties, some of which were more used to throwing weddings, in the end we decided to go with Arbors, as it seemed both intimate and spacious, exactly what we needed. Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous - all of our guests loved the property, and there was plenty of space for everyone (about 90 guests). We and our friends who stayed on the property with us absolutely loved the warmth that the property evoked, the proximity to the beach (literally ON the beach, but the sand dunes/seawall give a little privacy to the property). Our friends can’t wait to come back with us and are already talking about saving up for next year. It’s an amazing property and we wished we could be there forever.

I want to keep this one a secret!!!!

Drove up, parked in one of only 5 personal cottage slots and left the luggage in the car. I knew I had found Old Florida once I hit the pathway leading to the Yachtsman cabana. I passed a cozy covered thatch roof gazebo with four chairs and a table - perfect for playing cards outdoors, Florida vegetation marking entrances to each of the other two cottages, and then found our cabana, the Yachtsman - and it looked just like the pictures. Idyllically perched on the beach with a deck sitting near the Gulf Coast dunes was our new "home away from home". I told my family of 9 cousins, Aunts and Uncles and extended family, welcome to OUR beach house.

Those of you who need granite and a House Beautiful vacation and your room cleaned every day, please stay away so the rest of us can have our bohemian/Bahamian vacation spot to ourselves. For us, and for me, born in the Ft. Lauderdale in the 50's, everything about this place was PERFECT with over the top Old Florida comfortable accommodations. We never even touched the two bedrooms the entire week - except for the closets. We slept in what I'll call the lanai, with windows open, the ocean breeze wafting through the screens and the gentle sounds of surf filling the cabana day and night long. I slept in the daybed and my husband slept on what he said was the most comfortable couch EVER. Our wood paneled kitchen had every gadget we needed and the powder room was done in all white with Tommy Bahama soaps and bath washes.

We had laundry room privileges on Monday and Wednesday where we met some of the other guests. How cool. But the most important part of the vacation were the large gatherings of the family and the meals at the two picnic tables just outside our door. Our photos of the three generations with the sunset in the background, the sea oats swaying on the dunes, the young ones playing on the beach just in front of the cabana with the zillion beach toys provided by our hosts - well, I now regret writing this review. Why, because I want this place to be available to us whenever we want - and just found out when trying to do a spring vacation, 'our' beach home is booked through June. So, we made our reservations for next Christmas the day we left - Same Place, Same Time next year. Here's to the most contented vacation we've experienced in decades. Thank you, Deanna and Chuck!!!
