As soon as you make the turn off A1A you start to feel like you are about to experience something you can only wish for on vacation. When you get to Paradise Found you might start to grin involuntarily. The house is that nice. We had 3 generations there, on and off during the day, and this home is perfect for everyone. If you want to swim in a warm pool, body surf in the ocean 20 feet from the house, surf cast, go for a run on the beach, ride bikes, or play one of the many games left by the owners, there is plenty to do. There are fantastic restaurants nearby, or if you choose to cook there is a bbq, and the kitchen is stunning and well equipped. We have never stayed in a home where literally every detail was thought out and the generosity of the owners was so apparent. The beds are beyond comfortable, the dishes, the tv, the sound system, the decks... I could go on for an hour about how wonderful this house is. The rooms are large, and the set up could not be more perfect for privacy, and spending time together as a family. We are looking into booking for next year because the word will quickly get out about what a gem of a vacation home Paradise Found is. The owner, Karen, is the most friendly, kind person, happy to help, as is her property manager. We had a 10/10 vacation with not one problem. Golf courses, sailing, the arts, sports... everything is close by as well.
The house is very nice, large with a great living area upstairs along with 2 double bedrooms. The other bedrooms and TV/games room are downstairs, sort of a half-basement.
All rooms are very large.
The bathrooms are nice, but could do with a little renovation.
The kitchen is well equipped with a couple of nice dining areas. It was missing a kettle but the helpful owner ordered one for us.
In the main living room there is a new giant TV and sonos sound system which is very cool for late in the evenings.
The beach is a 1 minute walk away down a path in between the houses. It was pretty deserted when we were there aside from people walking dogs etc. We had a few portuguese man-o'-war jellyfish but they disappeared after a couple of days.
The pool is nice, not especially large but cozy and sheltered from the beachside.
There was loads of beach stuff there, boogie boards, snorkels etc.
Vero Beach is a 10 minute drive away, there are some restaurants there and a supermarket.
We drove from Miami airport (2 hours+) and when we were there visited Disney (2 hours) and also Kennedy Space Centre (< 2 hours).
We also rented paddle boards nearby (5 minutes away) and saw dolphin, manatees and loads of crabs/ fish!
The Navy Seal museum is also worth a visit.
We would stay there again.
Prior to arriving the owner was extremely helpful, many many contacts about what to do and logistics and responded to our queries super-fast when we were there.
This is a beautiful large, well appointed, high end home. Even better is the fabulous location. The sunrises over the horizon are stunning. There are abundant places to gather and play. The heated pool is great after a long day on the pristine private beach. The pictures, while beautiful, do not do the property justice!
What a wonderful place. We had a 4 generation family vacation, from a two month old to a 92 year old great grandmother. It was perfect for our family. Enough room for everyone. The beach access so close was so special. Hours spent on the beach, from beach walks, to playing in the surf. The heated pool was well used. The kitchen is so well stocked. Karen, the host, went out of her way to accomodate our family, as did the property manager. We are already planning our return. This is a gem of a property. Wonderful family memories made here. Too many pluses to list for this property. If I could I would give it 6 stars.
From the moment you arrive you are greeted at the door with sweeping views of the ocean- a huge living area with overstuffed, comfy sofas and seating areas. Even before you explore the house you are drawn to the huge porch, with sounds of the ocean and seating areas that invite you to relax immediately!
The kitchen has everything (2 dishwashers) and beckons group preparing, cooking or relaxing with a glass of wine... the laundry room boasts 2 washer and dryers...
All 6 bedrooms are large and each is decorated with it's own personality... the family room with a huge sectional invites a large crowd to enjoy tv, videos and a pool table...for peace and quiet, enjoy a small intimate library to work or read... a heated pool puts this home over the top!!!!!!
We'll be back!
