"Our entire family visited Paradise Cove to reconnect and just be together after a family member returned from a recent deployment to Afghanistan. The rental property was quiet and peaceful and there was plenty for the kids to do. There was tons of room - not once did we feel crowded or uncomfortable during our stay. We mostly spent our time on the water either kayaking, using the pedal boat, fishing, or just floating. There were so many nice touches and the house had pretty much anything you would need. If there was something you forgot or needed, there were stores relatively close. The neighbors were friendly too!"

"This is a place to enjoy the beauty of nature while comfortably enjoying a family gathering. We (4 sisters, 67-74 years old) parked our cars on Wednesday and did not return to them until we left on Saturday; everything we needed was right there!!
I rely a lot on reviews when I am searching for the perfect property. Hope this list of details aids your selection. This property surpasses basic expectations of a rental; hence, this list of positives: main floor living area has very comfortable, roomy seating ----very large selection of DVDs----deck tables and chairs were excellent for visiting and for outdoor meals----quality and quantity cookware----the dock was an activity within itself----quiet cove; boats and skiers were in the distance----walkable neighborhood----community pool, bathrooms, docks and picnic areas looked nice; a place to watch lake activities----the house had so many extras; screwdrivers, lighter/matches, extension cords, throws, etc for added comfort----
The property description had let us know there is not a bathroom on the lower level; we made our room assignments accordingly.
One need = a handrail on the staircase
WE PLAN TO RETURN !!"

"We really had a great time, the kids loved jumping off the top of the deck the best. We wanted to stay another week. The kitchen was very small but we made it work. The beds were very comfortable and we loved the view overlooking the lake. We will try to go back next year for sure."

"As a grandmother of seven grandchildren - 6 of them 4 years old and under, I was very apprehensive about going anywhere near any water for a vacation this year. Historically we would have gone to an ocean beach. I let my daughters know how nervous I was about all those little people being around the ocean and one of them suggested a lake house. I have never been to a lake house before. What an enjoyable, relaxing vacation! The little people could play in the water while the adults relaxed on their chairs and very little hands-on was required. The grassy area from the house to the lakefront was so much nicer than all the sand! We played all kinds of games there. There were small fish and a turtle came by one day for entertainment. I caught four fish IN A CHILD'S NET! We played duck-duck goose, croquet, play-doh, magnatiles, scrabble and made homemade ice cream. We rented a pontoon boat one day. We used the kayaks daily and the paddleboat. In addition, the Lake Gaston bird farm with about 100 species of birds and other farm animals is within walking distance. The kids loved it. Farmer Dick was really good with the little ones. The Ward's home was equipped with everything we needed to cook. The setup was great and handled my two daughters' families and I quite nicely. Underneath my bedroom suite is an outdoor "den" with a TV that we never even turned on. We spent most of our time there. The place was incredible. There seriously was nothing that we said, "I wish I would have brought, xxx." Eloise and Rick answered all our questions prior to arrival - they have sliced off a little piece of heaven. We will be back! I have already referred this place and provided contact information for some folks who are excited to check it out!"
