Real Gulf-Front Home: Step Out the Backdoor and Onto the Beach


Home Description

Completely remodeled, 2 BR, 1 ½ bath beach house right on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Walk out the back door to a 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 Australian 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.

As always, we had a very relaxing visit.

My husband says it was wonderful. The house itself has that authentic beach atmosphere, that leaves you with memories of the beach that will last a lifetime Looking forward to our next visit and the ones after that.

Paradise on the Beach!

We visited in February and really enjoyed the place. Cindy was easy to work with and recommendations for places to eat. The house was very neat and clean when we got there. The location is centrally located yet has lots of privacy. Great back yard with shade and easy access to the beach. Beds and furniture were comfy. Kitchen was well equipped and recently upgraded and had everything we needed, except food of course. Easy walk to places to eat and shopping. Sleeping while listening to the waves was the best part! We will be back!

What more could you want?

This was our second stay at Shady Palms and it was like coming home. Cindy and I are friends now and she is always a pleasure and super easy to deal with. Security deposit returned immediately. If you are looking for a comfortable house right on the gulf at a very reasonable price (do you know how RARE this is?) Shady Palms is the place for you. We are definitely coming back.

A perfect stay

In short: 4 adults and 3 kids fitted in nicely. House was larger than expected, very clean and well-functioning. Ample sitting-room space and nice, large kitchen, all with views of the Gulf. All amenities in place, nothing needed. House sits on a very large lot, completely undisturbed. Very nice and quiet neighborhood. Grandparents enjoyed the backyard with palms, cypresses and perfect, shady views of the Gulf. Directly on a not-crowded part of the beach, the water being not too shallow, nor right away too deep for the kids - also perfect. Walk to the tip of the island early in the morning, round trip 1½ hrs. We have tried a number of places "up-and-down" the Gulf coastline - some cheaper, some more expensive (everything is expensive with 7 in your party!) - and Shady Palms, in my opinion, is highly recommendable and offers good value for money. We would not hesitate to stay again, and will certainly recommend. Contact with owner very easy, friendly, humorous and swift. No problems whatsoever.
