This month’s villa of the month is situated on the Gulf Coast, close to Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island. The name of the villa is Sideways and makes the perfect escape from everyday life. Close to the tranquillity of the beach and oozing with Florida charm, you’ll never want to leave.
Being a quintessential Florida beach house, you’ll find palm trees outside, lining the street and glorious sunshine in the sky. As you walk in, you’re instantly greeted with a cool ocean beach theme, think blues, turquoises and crisp white, making it feel bright and airy.
What we love the most is the outside space. Theres so much of it! The patio on the first floor leads down to the glistening lagoon-style pool and a spa. Guests will find more palm trees, sun loungers, perfect for sunbathing, plus a table and chairs. Those who prefer the shade can still sit close to all the action of the pool. Nearby, there’s a covered area with wicker furniture, coffee table and a flat screen TV. The addition of a ceiling fan is super handy for creating a cool ocean breeze when the sun is at its peak. The central patio also leads up to the roof terrace, offering a sensational sea view. We recommend taking your date to the terrace and watching the sunset - very romantic indeed.
If you manage to tear yourself from the pool, you’ll discover a generous open plan living area. Sideways is neutrally decorated and finished with modern furniture. This home-from-home is full of comforts, there’s a comfy L-shaped sofa for relaxing on in the evenings, a flat screen TV and large windows which let plenty of light in.
Sleeping in the villa is a dream. The beds are large and the room is decorated with a neutral palette, with a few nautical touches.
