About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bath Recently Remodeled Home Close To Bay And Gulf Of Mexico

Close to everything yet quiet and affordable, the “Mango Cottage” is the perfect low-key home base for your Florida stay. This charming 1925 Florida bungalow was lovingly remodeled just two years ago with the latest in top-quality finishes (granite counters, real hardwood floors, glass tiles). The Mango Cottage is located in one of Bradenton’s oldest and most desirable neighborhoods just 300 steps away from Palma Sola Bay, where you could even cast for your dinner. When your mood says “quiet relaxation,” you needn’t go far. A mile on bike and you are at the Robinson Preserve, a choice destination for hiking/biking/kayaking/ecotourism. Enjoy local seafood in the historic town of Cortez – or shop for dinner 5 minutes away and cook a meal in the gourmet gas kitchen or the grill, then settle back under the towering canopy of Mango trees. And … when your spirit says “Let’s go!” you are just 10 minutes by car from the resort villages of Anna Maria Island and all of her gorgeous beaches, restaurants, night spots, and shopping. Short excursions? You name it: Sarasota’s arts scene, Bradenton’s historic downtown, and the urban cityscape of St Petersburg are 15-40 minutes away. Disney and all the rest of Orlando’s attractions are a two hours’ drive – an easy day trip. The house itself is on a large lot with plenty of room around it: Two bedrooms and two gorgeous modern baths, chef’s gas kitchen fully outfitted, and a comfortable backyard with gas grill. The owner Tracey manages Mango Cottage with pride and attention to detail, so you can book with confidence.

About Tracey Fiedler

Although only in Florida 5 years, I have been visiting family in Bradenton for 25! I remodeled this home when everyone thought it was too old but I saw the wonderful charm of this Florida cottage and remodeled it inside and metal roof just installed last month. Although I planned on making this my final home, I recently married a wonderful man and we decided to start our life in a new home of our own. This home holds a special place in my heart and I hope you will love it too!

Tracey Fiedler purchased this house in 2013

Old Florida Charm!

  • 5 of 5

Cute little place with huge mango trees(I love Mangos) was sparkling clean and outfitted very nicely for its' temporary inhabitants. Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors and a good place to walk to the water. I was a local, needing a place of refuge for me and two pets which the owners welcomed. If I ever have another emergency, I will go back in a heartbeat. Thank you Tracey.

Great Visit with Family for our Grandson's 1st Birthday

  • 4 of 5

The mango cottage was just as described on VRBO. Very clean, nicely rennovated, the plumbing and lighting fixtures were great. Wow the mango trees are cool. Loved the kitchen and it was very nice grilling for the family. It was very hot...the A/C and fans kept us nice and cool. Plenty of relaxing room on the comfortable sofas. Nice to have a computer desk in the front of the house. Cell reception could be a little challenging at times...front corner of the house was great :). Quiet older neighborhood and within 15 minutes of beautiful beaches on Anna Maria. Grocery stores and restaurants were close by. We went to the new Culvers...great burgers and shakes. Tracey was exceptional and very informative. Thanks Tracey!

Great place in a nice area!

  • 5 of 5

Mango Cottage was all and more than I had expected! Tracey was super friendly and very helpful in providing everything we needed. I loved that I was able to bring my golden doodle with and that the back yard of the cottage was fenced. The cottage was very conviently located to parks, beaches and so much more. The cottage itself was in a nice neighborhood with a view of the bay. Super cute inside and again really well supplied. I would highly recommend staying at Mango Cottage.

Charming, Coastal, Clean

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 girls (7 and 12) have been coming to Florida for Spring Break for the past 3 years. We previously stayed in hotel suites for the extra room, but a friend recommended looking into property rentals and we found the Mango Cottage. We absolutely loved it! It was charming and felt very coastal. It had plenty of room for our family. We are avid boaters and spent every day of our vacation exploring the beautiful islands off the Gulf Coast. We are, also, a tidy family and clean up here was simple. Tracey provided all the necessary amenities and we found our stay very relaxing. We plan to continue to use property rentals over hotels moving forward and would love to stay at the Mango Cottage, again, if Tracey will have us!
