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!
We're the proud parents and grandparents of a large family that includes thirteen grandchildren! Most of the men in our family outshine the women when it comes to cooking and we love to get together and share the results!
Angela Gunning purchased this cottage in 2010
We purchased this wonderful cottage in December 2010 after falling in love with it's unique characteristics and fabulous location. We think The Shady Mango will kindle a desire in your heart to relax, reconnect, and return just as it did ours. Our family welcomes you to make our charming historic cottage your home away from home and we look forward to hearing from you. Let us know how we can help you have the vacation of your dreams! Warmest regards, Angela and John Gunning, Owners
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! The Shady Mango is located on Pine Avenue in the middle of the historic district and at either end of the street you'll find a beautiful sugar sand beach.
Not only is the cottage itself perfect, the location is divine. We plan to return year after year.
Our recent 6 week stay at Shady Mango was absoloutely perfect in every way. The home is immaculate upon arrival, and professionally maintained every week. This is our third stay at Shady...we plan on returning every year. To our hosts... "Thanks for the memories".
Had the greatest time, very clean and very elegant. Amazing. Recommend to anyone. And will go back.
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!
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!
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
This charming historic cottage was featured in Country Woman magazine and more recently was filmed as part of a commercial. The Shady Mango is nestled in the heart of the Historic Village surrounded by several unique shops that have been featured in Southern Living magazine. Wonderful restaurants are also just steps away from the cottage. Anna Maria island has also been featured in Coastal Living magazine! Pine Avenue has been called 'The Greenest Little Main Street in America'.
Lovely sugar sand beaches are a short stroll from the Shady Mango at either end of Pine Avenue!
