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!
