Anna Maria cottage description
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!

Pine Avenue is a fairly busy street.The trolley travels Pine Avenue about every 20 minutes. The posted speed limit is between 20 mph & 30 mph. The yard is completely fenced but children are clever and can learn how to operate the gate latch so please be vigilant. The pool/spa in the back is not fenced separately. If you are bringing infants, toddlers or small children it is best to have an adult outside with them at all times....moreless

An Anniversary to Remember
An Anniversary to Remember
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!

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

First class in every aspect. Accommodation. Location. Central yet peaceful. Very comfortable for two people.Could stretch to four if necessary.Superb resturants and beaches within easy walking distance.Free transport covers whole area.Apart from connection to and fro airport, car would be superfluous unless intending to explore mainland. Tampa 90 mins. Sarasota 60mins.
