This was the get-a-way my husband and I needed. We own a motel and wanted to getaway to somewhere remote on the water and private. Paradise Found Island is gorgeous and abound by nature. All natural environment, not a concrete jungle. The views of the marsh are incredible with birds singing, lizards about and the sound of the waterfall at the pool. We rented the upstairs and loved it. We spent most all of our time on the large screened in porch playing yatzee and sipping on wine coolers and rediscovering our marriage of 20 years. Our first vacation in 16 years and it was everything we wanted it to be. The owner, Ken was so nice and so down to earth. His lady friend Miss Elizabeth was also very pleasant. This was by far the best vacation we could have had. The hot tub was our favorite amenity and we loved that it was on the covered porch we spent most of our time. There are kayaks and canoes and a above ground pool. If you like nature and simple homey comfort this is the place to be. The house was very clean with everthing we needed. The sheets were very soft. We will definitely be reserving our next getaway to Paradise Found Island. This visit was our birthday present to each other. We have very stressful lives forget how much we love each other. This getaway was the best for us to re ediscover our love for each other.
If you're looking for a fancy resort, this isn't it! This is old school Florida! Absolutely not a commercial area! Loved it! The owner Ken, and his staff, were super friendly. They were eager to share information on the area and helped us feel right at home. Both units were very clean & super cozy! Felt like home. The kitchen was fully stocked & the local grocery was very reasonably priced. We ate most of our meals on the island, which saved us time and money. It was an AMAZING VIEW! We started in the bottom unit, which we loved, but upgraded to the upper unit once we saw the view from up top! We had so much fun fishing, kayaking, just hanging out. This was a relaxing, peaceful vacation. The highlight ...on our last night we hopped in the water for one last kayaking trip. After only a few minutes in the water we came around the bend...SEVEN DOLPHINS! One was a baby! They swam within 10 feet of us! We kayaked with the dolphins for 30 minutes! Experience of a lifetime! We took our grandson for his 13th birthday adventure. This more than surpassed our expectations! It was a vacation our grandson will never forget. Couldn't have be more pleased or more grateful. My only regret is that I didn't book it for twice as long! Planning to take our grown children and their families back in January. Just can't say enough good things....
