About Michele Harkey or Mike Marshall
Michele and Mike are permanent residents of Central Florida. Our primary home is located in Orlando. Michele was born and raised in Miami (yes, there really are Florida native crackers in existence!). Mike is a native of Massachusetts and even as a young man he knew he was "solar powered" and would live in a warm and sunny climate someday. When he met and married Michele his wish to live in the tropical paradise of Florida was granted!
Michele Harkey or Mike Marshall purchased this House in 1995
Why Michele Harkey or Mike Marshall chose Indialantic
First Place Paradise! Melbourne, Florida was just named by U.S. News & World Report as the No. 1 Best Place to Live Near the Beach in the U.S. We are certain you will also find it to be the "best place" to vacation and you will enjoy its year-round warm weather, ample public beaches and location in the heart of the Space Coast.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the location and privacy of this home. The private gated community sits almost equidistant between the Atlantic Ocean (Paradise Beach) and the Indian River. In addition, we very much enjoy the large community pool (which is a 3 minute walk from our home) and the newly resurfaced tennis courts. Our favorite amenities in the home are the large cathedral ceilings with a skylight in the kitchen and family room, and the spaciousness of the master bedroom and bath. We find the quietness of the neighborhood to be very relaxing and enjoy sitting on the large private screened patio while watching the birds splash in the birdbath or listening to the doves coo early in the morning or toward twilight. Most of all, we love the walk to and along Paradise Beach and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean.

We totally enjoyed our stay. The home is lovely, clean, in a great location. Michele and Mike met us when we arrived, took the time to show us the house operations (temperature control, stove, doors, locks, etc.) and the neighborhood. There was a binder full of great info about the area. The overall experience was excellent. Bob and Judi Burke
A lovely home an a perfect Location
We were at Casa paradiso for 7 days and stayed there with two adults and two children. The owners are very friendly and gave us a very warm welcome.
We all loved the place with its very personally furnished style. All was in a very good shape and we liked all the rooms and the space that we had. The garden was very nice for our children, they could play outside whenever they wanted to. The house is located in a very good and nice neighbourhood. From there it takes just a few minutes to the beach (Paradise beach).
We can highly recommend Casa paradiso as a place to stay.
Excellent vacation home in prime area of Florida
Great property in a beautiful gated community. Clean, comfortable spacious home, with all the amenities. Very quiet neighborhood. Short walk to the beach and Atlantic Ocean a bonus. Mike and Michele met us with a bottle of wine and brownies. Very pleasant and easy to work with. It is easy to tell that they truly care that you have a great experience staying st their property.
