Sugar white sand sifting through your toes as you savor the emerald gulf waters or vivid sunsets is absolute paradise.

The large living area has a gas fireplace, TV, and DVD. Four bedrooms include a private third floor loft with half bath, its own deck and water view. Each bedroom has French doors opening to deck or porch. The lovely large community pool is next to us. Also enjoy the adjacent tennis and sand volley ball courts. The community club house may be available to rent for special occasions. Large master bedroom has king bed, private balcony and luxurious bath with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Enjoy cooking local fresh seafood in our large kitchen with new granite counters. Our spacious vacation rental home has two full and two half baths.ALWAYS CONTACT OWNER FOR RATES--AND BOOKING AUTO QUOTE IS NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE! As Absolute Paradise is our second home we prefer to handle all booking and payments after having the opportunity to chat with you and answer your questions.

WoW!!!! It was beautiful & amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed one week, June 28th - July 5th. We had plenty room with 6 adults & 3 small children. We had a wonderful time. The home was very lovely & comfortable. The pool was right there on the side of the home when you walked out the front door. Close to everything you want to do!!! The beach, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, etc. Plus, it is a pet friendly home! My dog (my baby) goes nowhere without me so that was a BIG PLUS! She's part of my family too! Beach access is just a short walk. The owner, Cynthia, will do everything she can to answer ANY questions you have & is always just a phone call away!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, CYNTHIA, FOR MAKING MY FAMILY VACATION A MEMORABLE ONE!!!!

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Great home... Beautifully decorated! Home was just like the pictures showed. Community pool is conveniently located behind the home, but was far enough that you could not hear the noise of the pool goers. The beautiful gulf water and white sand beach was close enough to walk, but many neighbors had rented golf carts, and at the end of the week i had wished i had thought of that too for our family of 6 (4 kids 6 and under). Overall a GREAT experience with Cynthia (homeowner) and the home. Can't wait to have the chance to go back again! :)

Absolute Bliss

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful--in it's decor, location, convenience and amenities! We loved the accessability of the beach, running/walking/biking path, pool, tennis courts and clubhouse as well as the many restaurants (Pompano Joe's, Crab Trap and Captain Dave's), outlet mall and grocery store. Late September/early October is a perfect time to go for families with children on fall break or as we did, which was to have a "girls week"! The water was warm and inviting so we spent most of our time on the beach; especially to have "happy hour" watching the sunset. We especially appreciated how well-stocked the kitchen, including many spices as well as the beach chairs, cooler and other accessories that we didn't have to pack and/or buy. Owners are very accomodating and responsive. Would give a 5 star rating to everything about our stay!

This property is accurately named. The inside is cozy with a large area for family fun and many small areas for quiet time. The porches were perfect on the one rainy day. We visited at the end of September 2011. The pool was heated and the ocean water was warm enough for comfortable swimming. We definitely will return in the future!
