"Paradise" is the ultimate vacation home! If you are looking for a private residence with all the amenities of a 5 Star Resort - look no further. The moment the electric gate opens and you see the directional signs to PARADISE (the main house) and ALMOST PARADISE (the guest house) you will know this property is special. To the left is the stately 3 story southern style home with wrap around walkways and 2 open air huge balconies overlooking the heated pool, spa with a cascading waterfall, manicured grounds, sandy play areas with hammocks and the Atlantic Ocean in full view. Outside there are lounge chairs around the pool and scattered around under gently swaying palm trees. Next to the pool is a charming gazebo with a table, chairs and a TV neatly hung just below the ceiling. A wooden walkway with sculptured mangroves on either side will mesmerize you as you stroll toward the ocean to discover a private fishing pier and sunning area. Scattered around the pool and gazebo are shaded areas with Adirondack chairs, hammocks and lounge chairs for reading or relaxing. If you prefer to play, there is pool basketball, pool volleyball, horseshoes, and a bean bag toss game. A well designed patio area with an outdoor wet bar, ice machine, dining table and a ping pong table is located by the covered area in front of the entrance to the ground level.
The ground level of the home is the indoor "playroom." There's a dazzling array of game tables and a wet bar with a double wine chiller for your beverages. Take your turn at air hockey, billiards, foosball or a game of Chinese checkers. Enjoy televised sporting events on the oversized wall hung flat screen TV. Surround sound will enhance the effects of these events. If you prefer to listen to music, that too is available. Another set of doors lead to the gas barbecue area and a newly installed putting green!
Take the gorgeous extra wide stairs or the elevator to the 2nd floor where you will find the main living area. The open concept living area encompasses the kitchen, dining and indoor or outdoor sitting areas. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to whip up a quick snack or prepare a 5 course dinner. If you prefer to have someone else prepare the 5 course dinner the concierge would be happy to arrange that for you. This 2nd level offers one of the two covered balconies overlooking the ocean with easy access from the living area or the queen guest bedroom suite to the balcony sitting area.
The 3rd floor offers a large master suite with en-suite bath and another guest suite. The master suite is breathtaking with a wall of French doors on two sides - one leading to a private balcony overlooking the ocean and the other to the side of the home. The inviting king bed faces the ocean providing a wonderful excuse for breakfast in bed! There's also a wall hung TV and entertainment center. The bath offers double vanities, walk-in shower and jetted tub.
The guest house is located to the west of the main house on the other side of the circle drive area. This offers a charming sitting area with a king sleeper sofa, separate bedroom with king bed, bath and washer/dryer. There's a mini kitchen with a microwave, small refrigerator and coffee pot.
As if all this isn't enough there is the wonderful playground behind the guest house for the youngest visitors. Slides, swings, a tree house, and sand kick ball will provide hours of entertainment.
Water, water, everywhere and toys to play on and in it are also everywhere! There are standup (or sit down) paddle boards and kayaks for guest use. Jet skis are available for an additional charge. A guided tour can be arranged. If you wish to bring or rent a boat there is dockage in the protected basin for up to 2 boats - one up 32' and one up to 27'. There is water and electricity at the docks.
