Property description

Completely remodeled, 2 BR, 1 ½ bath beach house right on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Walk out the back door to a vast, white, powdery beach and the sparkling, clear Gulf. Shady Palms beach house is located in the most perfect spot you’ll ever find! From the very first moment, you will notice how this private and quiet beach hide-a-way delivers the best of both worlds - sun and shade.

Sit in the backyard and enjoy the cool breeze under the swaying pines, and coconut palms while the sun, the fun, and the beach are just one step away. Dining tables and chairs are provided for beachside dining or swing and relax in the hammock large enough for two as the sun sets - all right from your backyard.

Upon entering this Old Florida Style beach cottage, you will encounter panoramic views of the Gulf from just about every room in the house. Watch the sunset from the kitchen or dining room, from the living room or sitting room. Wake up to the sound of the surf in the beachside master bedroom.

You will feel right at home with a fully-equipped kitchen. Enjoy the convenience of a center island workspace with modern appliances and every fun gadget imaginable for island cooking and entertaining! Two refrigerators - and two icemakers - means never running out of space or ice!

TV Sitting Room: Two very comfortable lounge chairs for both captains! 50' flat screen TV, cable, DVD, FM stereo with CD player. Bring your Chromecast - WiFi ready.

Game Room: Game table and bookshelves with cards, games, and puzzles provided. You will want to explore the house's remarkable indigenous shell collection along with some fascinating Anna Maria artifacts from bygone days.

Gulf-Side Sitting Room: Second dining table and chairs overlooking the beach. A second sleeper sofa (queen bed) and additional chairs also look out to the beach.

Bedrooms: Extra spacious bedrooms with king-sized beds. Top of the line, Sealy Posturepedic mattresses will ensure the most peaceful and comfortable sleep every night of your vacation. Comfortable sleep is our priority so that you may rest assured; no expense spared to provide the very best night's sleep possible.

Wireless high-speed internet provided free of charge.
