Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for letting us rent your beach house - Parm Paradise. When we first arrived, I thought we must be at the wrong house because it was way too nice to be a rental. You can imagine my delight when I tried the code and the door opened.

From the minute we walked in, we were in love. I wish I had a video of our faces as we ran from room to room. Each room was decorated so cute and everyday there was something new to discover.

Our family consisted of 8 people - my parents, my mother-in-law, 3 children and my husband and me. We were really impressed with the sleeping & bathroom accomodations. Everyone had their own space and the sheets smelled nice too.

The pool was an added bonus and very refreshing after a day at the beach. Some days we just stayed at home and played in the pool - only to see the ocean while sipping drinks from the 3rd floor balcony.

We couldn't have asked for a better location or a more accomodating house. we felt very lucky to have rented such a beautiful home.

All of us were sad when our week was up and we had to return home. My family is still talking about the wonderful time we had at Palm Paradise and those memories will be with us always.

Thanks again for taking such pride in your property - it really shows!

Great family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying here. Everything is as described and a perfect fit for our two families. Wonderful location, close to the beach, plenty of space. The oversized pool is great for an afternoon swim. Brian is great to work with and very accommodating. I highly recommend staying here.

Well maintained home.

  • 5 of 5

Nice home, well stocked with everything we needed for cooking. Nice that they finally paved the street out front too!

We had friends stay here a few years back and they had a positive experience and so did our family.

Thank you,

Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

Unbeatable location just 2 short blocks to the beach, 1 block to ice cream shop and fresh fish market! Our 3 families with 6 children under 10 absolutely loved it! There was abundant room for all of us and we'll supplied kitchen to make family style meals. The kids loved the pool and beach toys (supplied by owner). And the adults enjoyed quiet conversation on the porches. This home is very spacious but homey and comfortable. We will treasure the memories of the week spent at Palm Paradise.

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation with our two boys and their families. The reason we chose this property was that our daughter-in-law had stayed here the previous year with her family. When they arrived she said she hoped she hadn't "oversold the place". To the contrary, it far exceeded our expectations. With four grandkids(7-6-4-3), the bunk room and upstairs TV area was perfect. Bedrooms on each floor were very nice, especially the lower level for Grandma and Grandpa.(easy access and sometimes far enough away from total chaos) The pool was just the right size and was used as much as the beach. The house handled the ten of us easily, and was very comfortable. The kitchen was large and well stocked with utensils and accessories. The family room was large and had plenty of comfortable seating. However, the best feature was the location. IT WAS PERFECT ! It was a short walk to the beach on a wide paved sidewalk. The street was a dead end street, so there was very little traffic. With the beach wagon that was available, we were able to get all the beach gear down there easily. We were a half block from a bicycle rental, ice cream shop, beach gear store, fresh seafood market, and what we thought was the best seafood restaurant we ate at.(Goatfeathers) Another restaurant (Local Catch) and beach store was a four to five minute walk away, but where the house was located you never felt you were near a main thorofare. With all the sidewalk and bicycle paths Santa Rosa Beach has, it was very easy to get around. Walking around and seeing what else was available, there was no doubt we had made a great choice. We would recommend this property to anyone in a heartbeat!

Perfect vacation location/house!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Paradise Is a great vacation home rental! All the amenities you need and a quick walk to the beach. We ate out but appreciated the convenience of the gas grill right by the pool. We enjoyed all our meals outside on the second floor deck. Tastefully decorated with bright "beachy" colors throughout. Perfect for multi families. The pool is very large with plenty of outdoor lounge chairs. Quick drive to Publix to get groceries. Many great restaurants nearby. This is definitely a place to come back to year after year.

Great House and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house for our party of 10 (6 adults and 4 children)! Palm Paradise is a beautiful home with all the amenities. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and is just a short walk to the beach. The private pool was great and the large wagon was very helpful in getting our gear out to the beach everyday. We had a wonderful time and could not be more pleased with the house!

The owners were very responsive to any questions and have been great to deal with!
