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!

Very nice property and location

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with another family to Florida for spring break. This house is located in a very nice residential area close to many restaurants and a few shops. The public beach access is an easy walk down the road and the pool was large enough for all of us to enjoy with plenty of seating space. The house is very cute, clean, and comfortable, and it is appropriately decorated as a family beach house to just relax and enjoy. The Santa Rosa area is centrally located if you want to explore the coast from Fort Walton to Rosemary Beach and very nice for families with young children or couples/adults traveling without kids. The reason I mention this is our teen boys did get a little restless since it is a quieter beach without many people their age. We spent a couple days driving to the Destin area for activities they enjoy, which was not a problem, but it is a good 30-40 minute drive with traffic. We brought our bikes and spent time riding on the 30A bike path to various other beaches and towns. The house is at mile marker 4 and only a block away from the bike trail. The owner, Brian, is quick to respond and easy to work with. We would certainly rent from him again. We had a very enjoyable vacation and were blessed with beautiful weather. We plan to visit again real soon.

Owner's Response: We would love to have you back. About 50% of our guests come back every year. Contact us directly, we are able to offer great savings to direct contact guests and returning guests. It is great being a block of the 18 mile bike path. We love the Gulf View Heights neighborhood as well. Thank you for the great review. Brian

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Palm Paradise over spring break 2017 as a group of four adults and six children. This home's layout is fantastic for families - our children were happy to own the top floor while the adults enjoyed the serenity of the two master suites on the first and second floors. We especially appreciated the heated pool as the temperature was a little chillier than usual. Know that the posted photos here do not do the property justice, the family room in particular is much larger than it appears in the photos and the balconies are fantastic and convenient. The location can't be beat, only two short blocks from the beach access in a quaint, quiet and charming neighborhood. There are also two great restaurants within walking distance of the home; The Local Catch and Goatfeathers in addition to the cute ice cream shop that the kids enjoyed. Santa Rosa's downtown shopping area is just a quick jaunt up the road, easy to reach via the expansive bike path trail system or by foot. On top of all this, Brian is a gracious and attentive host, you will not be disappointed!

Palm Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Palm Paradise many times it is a beautiful house in a beautiful location. The house is an incredible house and such a peaceful area. The beaches are beautiful and the house is always so clean and you do not need to bring anything it is all there. Walking distance from the beach and shopping just short distances away. The dining is fantastic and sunsets incredible. We love this house and this area you will not be let down.

Best week ever!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Paradise is our favorite! We have returned several times. The house is fully equipped with just about everything you would ever need for a fabulous beach vacation and so close to the beach too! And if you don't want to go to the beach, the pool is right there instead. The house is centrally located and convenient to a number of things to do. We will definitely return! Hopefully with more friends this time.

Relax at Palm Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Palm Paradise on several occasions and each time it was a wonderful experience. The home has everything you could ask for - spacious enough to accommodate a large group, beautifully furnished, a kitchen with everything that you would find in your own home (and more), location close to the beach, an inviting pool and three outside areas where you can relax and enjoy the scenery. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation and we can't wait to go back! We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a top-notch rental and a wonderful vacation.
