Perhaps Shady Palms will become 'your place on the beach.' Walk into a charming, Old Florida style beach cottage with a view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico from every room in the house. Continue through the back door, and into the yard and you are one step from the wide, white, sugar-sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico. Shady Palms offers the best of both worlds - sun and shade. Take a relaxing snooze in the hammock or enjoy dining under the coconut palms and pine trees. One thing you can count on; the gulf breeze keeps you cool no matter the temperature everywhere else! Enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the house or the backyard. The view from inside is magnificent, as the windows are plentiful and span the length of the house.

Take a relaxing snooze in the hammock or enjoy dining under the coconut palms and pine trees. One thing you can count on; the gulf breeze keeps you cool no matter the temperature everywhere else! Enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the house or the backyard. The view from inside is magnificent, as the windows are plentiful and span the length of the house. Inside, the house is designed with casual comfort, modern convenience, and relaxation in mind.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and is on the beachside with a view of the gulf. The second bedroom has a king bed and a full-sized sofa sleeper that when open still provides ample space to move around comfortably. Both bedrooms have cable TV and drawer and closet space for belongings. There is a second sleeper sofa located on the beachside porch for additional sleeping accommodations. Both bedrooms are quite roomy, and any bed in the house is supremely comfortable. Visitors have described Shady Palms as 'one of a kind.' The close proximity to the beach, the privacy, spaciousness, and shade of the back yard, and the exceptional view of the beach from anywhere on the property is difficult to find anywhere else on Anna Maria. Many visitors discover Shady Palms is better than hoped for, and many come back ... again and again! So come to Shady Palms... let it become 'your place on the beach!'

Shady Palms brings you back to old style Florida, before condos and high rises took over the beaches. This 50's ranch house is surprisingly spacious, with multiple living areas and large bedrooms and an updated big kitchen. There are many wonderfully quirky decorator touches, including...More
