Private Homes house description
'Paradise Too' is a breathtaking 180 degrees of Gulf-front majesty awaiting you at this West Indies Planters-style tropical Paradise.
This magnificent house has charm and atmosphere which is instantly appreciated. It sits on 110 feet of true ocean frontage and boasts of spacious gulf front living and bedroom areas, a spectacular porch, covered parking, and pool with unheated spa. The home is on Periwinkle Lane in the exclusive Paradise Too subdivision. The floors are heart pine and Mexican tile. The kitchen has every modern convenience. The home was built in 1980 out of Juniper siding. It has recently been upgraded with modern touches added. This is the Highest Point above sea level on the entire North American coastline of the Gulf of Mexico.
The home is 3 levels. There are approximately 2600 sq. ft. of heated and cooled area. There are approximately 500 sq. ft. of decks/porches. There are 3 bedrooms on the main (middle floor): the master with king size bed and adjoining bath, one on the southwest corner of house with queen size bed, one on the northwest corner of house with twin beds (which can become a king if desired). These two bedrooms are connected by a hallway with a bathroom between them. On the third floor, overlooking the living area there is a sleeping loft with 3 single beds, and there is a bedroom next to the loft with a bunk bed (double on bottom, single on top. Also on this third level there is a big bathroom. On the bottom floor there is a big open room with Mexican tile floor and two bunk beds (double on bottom and single on top). The middle floor has heart pine floors in the bedrooms and Mexican tile in the dining, living, and kitchen areas. The kitchen and dining room are next to each other with the living area in front of them (towards the ocean). There are ocean views from all three of these of areas. Dining is usually done at the dining room table, at the open counters to the kitchen (using 3 bar stools), TV tables in living area, on the porch (deck tables, etc.), and occasionally on the gazebo (located halfway down the boardwalk. There is a TV/DVD in the living area and in each of the 3 bedrooms on the main floor as well as in the downstairs bunk room. Right outside of the bunk room toward the ocean is an outside enclosed hot and cold shower. The kitchen has new granite counter tops, a new gas range/double convection oven, and other conveniences. All bedrooms have ocean views. The house is approached from the back side (north) from county road 30-A via Periwinkle Lane. No roadside traffic noises (which are associated with most of the other homes in the Seagrove Beach area). Located 1/2 mile East of 'Seaside' and 'Water Color'.

Paradise, Aptly named
Paradise, Aptly named
I highly recommend "Paradise Too" to any and all. This home is perfectly located for both young and old, beach lovers, and beach watchers, those who love to sit by the pool and get a tan, or those who love to kayak and bike til they drop, sunrise watchers and sunset watchers. Our party was a mix of all of these and Paradise had everything we could have wanted. We even had a chef in our midst who spent his evenings in the well equipped sizable kitchen cooking and wave watching at the same time. Our kayak rental was delivered to the door and picked up there too. We could have rented paddle boards, bikes, even a golf cart. We biked along the bike path from Inlet Beach all the way past Blue Mountain Beach, including the nature trails in the various parks and the paths in Alys Beach, Water Sound Beach, Seaside and Water Colors. I didn't have time to see all of them. We kayaked several times a day and saw a huge sea turtle, small sharks, many stingrays, lots of fish and dolphins, and a manatee. I actually went out alone and was kept company by a pod of 5 dolphins for a while. We saw these from the huge deck too. We spent most of the family time on deck watching the different marine life swim up and down the coast. We had 8 young adults, all together they turned on the tv once. They used their computers about twice each for the whole week, and two of our sons didn't even charge or use their phone the whole week long. They rested together talking or playing games on the deck which has a huge shaded area, and two sunny areas at each end. Sometimes they would go down to the pool and swim and play games there. Dinner was a family event eaten on the deck together. The publix (grocery store) was easily biked for small things or a short drive for a big shop. One mile to seaside was biked easily or a short walk. The house was stocked with a million little extras to make the stay comfortable, hair dryer, high chair, ironing board, videos, games, books, two blenders, the list goes on and on. The complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas was a nice surprise too. Tons of parking too. Last but not least, the owner couldn't have been more helpful. We met him on the beach our first day and he was always trying to make our stay more pleasant.

About the owner: My name is Chip Haring. We have had this and other property in Seagrove Beach for over 30 years. We split time between Seagrove and Auburn, AL. My wife Nancy is a doctor at Jackson Hospital and I am in real estate development. We are part owners of the 'V Seagrove' restaurant in Seagrove and the soon to be 'Residences at Hotel Viridian. We have met many wonderful guests at 'Paradise Too' over the years and look forward to meeting you!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
I have been intrigued by the Highway 30A/Seagrove beach area all my life. It is very unique/charming and seems separate from all the hustle and bustle to the east and west.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house was built to take advantage of the 110 feet of ocean frontage. From the porch looking east and west, you almost have the feeling of being on an island.
