Wonderful and Relaxing experience
Our family recently stayed in "Paradise Found" and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The floorplan was great as it allowed for our son to be put to sleep while we closed off the hallway leading to his room so that we could stay up for the remainder of the night and cook a nice meal or simply relax not bothering him. My wife and I are "foodies" and the kitchen was stocked with all of the right amenities to cook a nice meal. The upstairs balcony was very large and enabled us to open up the triple slider sliding glass doors and use the balcony as a extension to the home when the weather was cool enough to do so. Both the balcony and the patio below enabled us to see all the boats coming and going on their excursions. The house is positioned on the canal towards the entry into the neighborhood so 95% of the boats that left the neighborhood had to pass by our house which our 2yr old son loved. Of course this is a now wake zone so we could chat with the boaters as well.
Fishing off of the patio was fun and full of yellow tail snapper. A Bait shop is close by at the Chevron so it was easy to restock when necessary. Although we didn't have a boat, their is plenty of dock space
The pool was perfect however we didn't realize that it was heated. Had we known that, we would have made it a bit warmer so that my wife could enjoy the pool. As it stands, only my son and I swam in the pool. The neighborhood was quiet and full of nice people. We interacted with them as we rode our bikes throughout the subdivision.
We biked it to a nearby coffee shop for a light lunch and also to the local Pizza restaurant at the front of the subdivision. The coffee shop was good but the Slice of Paradise Pizza restaurant was OK. The Square Grouper on Cudjoe Key to the South was phenominal. Bahia Honda State park is a nice beach that we frequented and it's about 20 minutes to the north.
We were also able to bring our two dogs which was nice. They thoroughly enjoyed being on vacation with us and the fenced in area downstairs gave them free reign outside without any worries to us.
The property was well maintained but could probably use a very deep cleaning. The house was clean upon our arrival but probably just needs to get the annual deep cleaning done fairly soon. My wife has high standards for cleanliness so she is probably ultra-sensitive in this area.
Overall, the place is excellent and we would highly recommend it. We hope to return some day. The owner was very helpful. Great Job!
