I can't express how well appointed this rental is. They have thought of everything! Loads of beach gear, tons of really nice towels, about every kitchen appliance you can think of. Everything is well laid out in the home and easy to use, the few things that were more complex very detailed instructions we left to make even those things easy to operate! Ken was quick on communication the limited times I needed anything. Everything was in good condition, the beds slept wonderfully (important after long days enjoying 30A!) the outdoor shower was put to good use. Being across the street from the fantastic pool spoiled us. The walk down to the beach across the boardwalk looked worse than it was in reality. It's really quite a short distance, made even shorter if you bike it. Several local shops and restaurants just outside the neighborhood, Yellowfin is a great little bait shop our kids spent a good bit of time visiting and getting pointers on surf fishing, stop in if your at all interested in fishing! With their information my boys actually caught their first salt water fish! Beach was awesome. Clearest water I've seen, as clear or clearer than Hawaii. All our kids have raved about how great a time we had. I'm sure we will be back!
Jared...Thanks for the great review and kind words about our home and your stay there. Like you said the walk or bike ride to the beach is really shorter than it looks and what a beautiful view it is down the boardwalk to the sand. And we too love having the pool right across the street from us. Glad your family was able to enjoy your vacation and make some new memories while you were here. We look forward to having you stay with us in the future!
Paradise Found was truly paradise for my family and I. This beautiful home was perfect for my large family and the location couldn’t be better. The house has everything you could need and more. Ken was so accommodating and made us feel right at home. We can’t wait to continue our summer family vacations in our new favorite spot, Paradise Found!
We loved having your family stay at our home, Caelee. Really glad you enjoyed your vacation and look forward to seeing you again. And thanks for the garden fresh cucumbers.. they were great!
Katharine & Gerald Nichols
Great Communication with Ken! Beautifully decorated and comfortable home in WaterSound West. Quiet, even the workmen on the home next door didn't bother us, very well insulated! House temperature was even and cool throughout! Kitchen well stocked and so clean! Golf cart for 6, bicycles for more! Good place for all ages! Pool directly across the street, beach is a bit of a hike for older folks (but we got our steps in every day!) 45 and under thought it was fine. Nice cart to pull beach chairs, umbrella, cooler. The boardwalk is nice and well maintained. You don't need to bring any beach chairs or towels, the Farley's thought of everything! Even a box of Godiva chocolates when we arrived!! Very thoughtful! We really enjoyed our stay!!
So glad you and your family enjoyed your week of vacation at the beach staying at our house, Katharine! We really appreciate the kind words about our home and the neighborhood and beach. It truly is our goal that guests can stay here and not have to worry about bringing a lot of other things with them to make their vacation a relaxing and comfortable one. And, with the popularity of vacationing in this part of Florida, having private beach access like ours where all year round you can enjoy one of the least crowded beaches on 30A, it truly is a blessing to be able to share that with our family and guests like you. We hope to see you back again soon!
Location, location, location! The home beautifully appointed. Excellent communication with the owner. Located right by the pool & the boardwalk to the beach is beautiful! 2 outdoor spaces at the house was helpful. The bikes & golf cart made for an awesome stay. Highly recommend & will be back for sure!
Glad you had a great vacation Allie! We love how it's just steps away from the pool and boardwalk. And we just added more bikes to our collection so we now have 8 adult cruisers, 1 10-speed with a bike carrier and 2 kids bikes. Thanks too for your suggestions on what we could do to take care of all the coffee lovers out there since we don't drink coffee. Besides the coffee pot and Keurig we now have a coffee press, Expresso maker and will soon have a coffee grinder as well. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future!
The O’Keefe Family
This house is absolutely amazing! It has everything you could want in a vacation rental. Our kids spent countless hours biking, exploring the beach, and enjoying the pool. We loved golf carting around the neighborhood and visiting local shops and restaurants. The house comfortably slept our entire family and is both well-decorated and well-equipped for vacationers. We will be back next year!
Really glad to hear your family had a wonderful vacation while staying at our home. WaterSound West Beach is an amazing community that not only has great amenities like the zero entry pool and private beach access, but it's also conveniently located near many other areas of 30A that people like to see while they're there. We look forward to having you stay with us again at Paradise Found!
We loved our time here! We had two families with 4 kids and a baby and were delighted with all of the baby supplies. Great location—quiet but direct access to the beach. We plan to stay there again next year!
Having lots of things on hand for the little ones is important to us, Kylie and we're glad you got to take advantage of them. Whether you'd like to not have to bring all the baby gear with you or someone forgets to bring something, we try to have all bases covered. And we love the direct access to the beach along with the fact that it's one of the least crowded sections of beach on 30A. Thanks for already booking your next vacation in 2024 with us, we look forward to having you back at Paradise Found!
Our family had a wonderful time! The house was beautiful, very clean, with plenty of space for everyone to relax inside and out. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook with and all the bathrooms had plenty of towels, and other things that made it a spa like experience. The pool was right next door which was convenient for everyone to go back and forth and the hosts even provided us with some awesome beach towels to use. The private access down the boardwalk to the beach was breathtaking! The beach was beautiful, especially the stretch that went east that appears to remain uncrowded no matter what time of year you’re there. We also loved using the bikes for rides to the beach and exploring parts of 30A and having access to the golf cart was super nice too. There were plenty of restaurant options nearby and we felt like we got the best of both worlds being able to escape all the crazy busy areas of 30A and have a peaceful place to retreat to, but close enough to jump into everything else on 30A if we wanted. All the beach toys, chairs and umbrellas made for fun times at the beach and we loved the fact that we didn’t have to bring all that stuff with us. Oh… and they had everything you needed for the littles on hand too like a highchair, Pack and Play and more. Kids also loved playing games up on the 3rd level in the tower and hanging out. Ken made sure everything was great during our stay. Hands down our favorite place to stay on 30A!
Thanks for the great review Teresa! It was our pleasure having you stay at our home and like you said, it's a special retreat to relax and enjoy while you're at the beach but also conveniently located near most other things you might want to enjoy on 30A. Glad your family had a great time and we look forward to seeing you back with us again in the future!
We were so fortunate to find "Paradise Found" and stay in such a comfortable, luxurious home for our trip to the Florida gulf coast. Each room was decorated beautifully, impeccably cleaned and had every convenience we could hope for. We were thrilled at the location, being only a short walk to the beach on a boardwalk surrounded by pines and over a coastal dune lake. The bikes were one of our favorite activities, riding out to the beach and around the quaint neighborhood. The pool was just across the street and surprisingly warm and a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the sunshine while the kids swam. We will always remember our stay here, and hope to return in the near future. I have a new love of “30A” because of the memories we made. Thank you!
Michael, really glad you and your family had a great time at Paradise Found! We try to make sure we've got everything here that a family might possibly need or want during their stay. And we love our housekeeper and her crew. They do make sure everything is really clean, stocked and ready to go before our guests arrive. We too love the quiet neighborhood and that the home is so close to the pool and private beach access and also convenient to everything else on 30A. And it’s fun to hop on the golf cart or ride bikes around the area. Thanks for the nice review and we hope to see you back again soon!
We’ve stayed at a lot of homes and communities on 30A and this was by far our favorite. The home was beautiful, clean with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The kitchen was stocked with everything possible along with lots of extras you might enjoy using. We loved the king suites on the first and second level and all the beach gear (they even had beach towels) that made our stay so enjoyable and fun. They thought of everything for kids including a highchair and pak n play. Loved the 3rd level tower where it sleeps two on the queen sofa and kids could play games. You had peak-a-boo views of the ocean and some nights you can step outside and hear the waves crashing on the beach! The golf cart and bikes were nice to get around in and being across from the pool (heated and cooled) and next to the private boardwalk that was just minutes away to the beach was great. We could walk or ride bikes there. Enjoyed riding to restaurants and places like The Big Chill, plus Seaside and Rosemary Beach are several miles either direction. Unlike other beaches on 30A that are crammed 3 to 5 rows deep, their private beach access next to Deer Lake makes it an amazingly uncrowded beach to enjoy any time of year. It’s one of the best kept secrets on 30A. Definitely a hidden gem. Ken was great communicating with us to ensure our vacation was relaxing as possible. Best week ever on 30A and we will be booking our next vacation at Paradise Found for later this summer!
Wow! Thank you for such a wonderful review Ann. You pretty much sum up what we're hoping all of our guests experience when they stay with us at Paradise Found. So glad you and your family had a great time and we look forward to seeing you back with us again!
We had a great experience at Paradise Found! Ken made the check in process easy. The house was furnished with everything you need and was very clean. The house provided extra items that you don’t typically see at vacation rentals such as a high chair and pack n play, multiple bikes and a trailer for babies/infants, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, beach tools, kitchen and laundry supplies, extra pillows and smart TV’s in every room including the screened porch. Thank you Ken for being so thoughtful.
Thanks for the nice review, Adam! Really glad you and your family had a great time at Paradise Found! We try to make sure we've got everything here that a family might possibly need or want during their stay. And we love our housekeeper and her crew. They do make sure everything is really clean, stocked and ready to go before our guests arrive. Hope to see you back again!
Blake & Catherine
This is a fantastic beach house and location! It’s close to the pool and beach boardwalk, it’s well furnished, its up to date, and it’s super clean. We loved it and so did the kids. Ken was super helpful any time we had questions. We will definitely stay here again!
We loved having you stay at Paradise Found! Glad it worked out for your family to have the opportunity to get away for the week. Was also nice hearing about how you stayed here five years ago when the previous owner rented out the home. Thanks for the kind words and we look forward to seeing you back again soon!
Very clean, beautiful house in a beautiful treed quiet neighborhood! The amenities were great with the pool right across the street and the boardwalk to the beach right out the front door! Loved having bicycles to ride and it was very easy to get to the near by beaches like Rosemary, Alys and Seacrest. The owners were great to work with and super accommodating! They made sure we had everything we needed. Tons of great restaurants all around the area!! Our family absolutely loved our stay!!
Stacy we're so glad that you had a great time at Paradise Found! We too love the quiet neighborhood and that the home is so close to the pool and private beach access and also convenient to everything else on 30A. It's always our goal to stock the house with anything and everything a family might need or want to make it a fun and relaxing vacation getaway, and we look forward to having you stay at Paradise Found again!
My sister and I got to spend a peaceful week here as a last trip before she gets married! It was such a beautiful home with a great little walk to the beach. The location is perfect— between Rosemary and Seaside. This house has everything you need… bikes, golf cart, inflatable boat, you name it! We felt very blessed!
Thanks for the kind words, Kaitlin. So glad to hear that you and your sister had a great experience at Paradise Found!
We loved our stay at Paradise Found! Over the years we’ve stayed at a lot of other vacation rental properties in various communities along 30A and this is by far the best. The home was beautiful, clean and spacious with plenty of room for our family and friends to spread out and relax. We loved having king bed master suites on the first and second level, along with all the beach toys and gear provided (they even had beach towels we could use) that made our stay so much more enjoyable and fun. Not having to bring your own highchair and pack n play was great too. They thought of everything including families with kids and grandkids. And having the bikes and golf cart to get around in was great and you feel really safe letting your children explore WaterSound West Beach. Plus, the convenience of being directly across the pool and right next to the private boardwalk to the beach was really nice and we had the option to walk or ride bikes which was just a few minutes away. Also, unlike some other communities on 30A where during this time of year the beaches may be crammed with chairs, tents and umbrellas 3 to 5 rows deep, their unique location next to Deer Lake Park makes it an amazingly uncrowded and beautiful beach to enjoy. Best week ever on 30A and we will definitely be booking our next vacation at Paradise Found!
Thanks for the wonderful review of Paradise Found, Ann! We agree with you 100% on everything you mentioned and it's all the reasons why we chose to make it our home away from home too. We look forward to having you back with us again!
My family has been coming down to 30A for a couple of years and most recently stayed at 'Paradise Found' in Watersound West. The name says it all! Beautiful home, with everything you need for a perfect week at the beach. Perfect for families, a true paradise! Location was perfect, right across the street from the pool. Ken (the owner) was fantastic to work with. Very responsive, flexible and understanding of our situation. We will absolutely be back!
Thanks for sharing your experience at Paradise Found, Kevin. Really glad your family had a great time. Thanks too for the kind words about the interaction we've had. I enjoyed that as well. We always want our guests to be well-taken care of and we look forward to seeing you back again in the future!
This home was perfect! Beautifully decorated, great layout for two families and close to pool and beach. The stroll to the beach was beautiful crossing over the lake then the dunes. The beach was a treasure- much more private and scenic than the other beaches in the area. Paradise Found is gem on 30A.
Best location in Watersound West. House closest to pool entrance and the boardwalk leading to the beach. The house is immaculate with wonderful decor. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay at some posh digs on vacation. From the sleeping porch to the awesome grill to the great amount of seating, this house has it all!
This house is in the perfect location with young kids. It sits directly across from the pool and steps away from beach boardwalk access. There is a lot of living space for everyone to hangout together.
The location of this house is amazing. Right across the street from the pool and an easy walk to the beach. Community is beautiful and quiet. House was clean and decor was nice. Check in and checkout were a breeze.
Amazing location and felt very private and calm. The house was a perfect size right next to the pool which was never packed. Beach was so easy to get to and quiet! We loved the house.
Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful property. Rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated in coastal (not kitschy!) decor. Close proximity to the pool and boardwalk to the beach was very handy. Very clean and bright throughout. Will definitely return for another visit!
Watersound West is a wonderful smaller gated community that is conveniently located half way between Rosemary Beach and Seaside. We appreciated the fact that it is quieter there and the beach is more private than what you would experience at other popular locations along 30A, also within an easy walking distance from our accommodations. Pool and clubhouse are very nice. Grounds are beautiful, and homes charming; all are very well maintained. We highly recommend staying there!
Paradise Found was the perfect vacation rental for our trip in August! The house is lovely, very clean and spacious. It was the perfect layout for 2 families, and the perfect location in the neighborhood. We were so glad to be right across the street from the pool and boardwalk. And the complimentary bikes were much appreciated!
We had a wonderful experience at Paradise Found with easy access to private beachfront, the neighborhood pool across the street, and the safe neighborhood for walking and bike rides. As a family of 9 young and old, we were comfortable and content with the home. We will be back. Thank you!
Clean, modern, perfectly located for outdoor beach vacation. My family and I had comfort and convenience the whole week to enjoy the beach and pool.
Traveling with 7 kids and finding a spot with safe access to the pool, beach, and shops was a challenge, but this fit the bill perfectly. The kids could ride bikes to local shops without crossing any busy roads and literally walked out the front door to access the pool. The beach is accessible by a peaceful and pleasant walk across deer lake. Perfect location and very workable room situation for our big family.
