Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need to enjoy your stay at the beach. Best beach chairs and wagon to pull amazing toys for little ones and even grown ups. This house is very short walking distance to Goatfeathers who will supply all your Seafood needs. We love to cook while we're at the beach and this house has everything you need to prepare a meal for small group or large group. The local restaurants are totally adequate no need to drive into Destin or Panama you have everything you need within 10 minutes. This house also has the best pool we've ever had in Santa Rosa very comfortable and homie. Our daughter got married while we were there this time and used Fine Arts on 30A weddings as her venue and we even got great reviews from the owner of this house prior to going which made us feel much better about our venue choice. I hope to return to this house within the next 6 months to 1-year and I will totally rent this house and would recommend it to everyone,

Quiet beach life

  • 5 of 5

If you're trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of Destin this is your destination. This home is 2 blocks from the beach and in a very quiet neighborhood. The beach is not near as crowded as Destin (we went out after 10 am and had no problem getting a spot). One house separates you from a restaurant (Goatfeathers) and ice cream shop. Publix is a 5 min drive away and there is also pizza delivery available. The home itself is just as described. Plenty of room for our group of 17 and a well maintained pool to keep the kids entertained when the weather was cloudy and we were afraid to haul all of our things to the beach. Lots of beach items in the closet as well as a wagon to lug it all down there. The owner responded very quickly to any questions asked and even called us in advance to make sure we were taken care of.

Relaxing, Beautiful, and Charming Beach Home & Town!

  • 5 of 5

This beach home was the perfect getaway with family and friends! The location could not have been better- a very short walking distance from the beautiful beach and just minutes away from amazing food and shops. Brian keeps this vacation house in tip-top shape and was wonderful with providing everything guests need to be comfortable and happy. The backyard pool makes this house perfect, and it is even equipped with lights for swimming after sunset. The home is lovely for large or small groups, with three beautifully furnished floors and multiple bedrooms. Outdoor porches and balconies are accessible on every floor, ideal for morning views of the ocean or evening sunset watches. The weather at this vacation spot cannot be beat. During our trip in the middle of May the water was already so warm! The white-sand beach competes with those of tropical islands, and the locals’ friendly atmosphere made it one of the most memorable vacations I’ve ever had. Could not recommend a better stay anywhere else!

Wonderful place for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Paradise was the perfect place for a beautiful vacation with the girls! The home provided plenty of space and was very clean and inviting from the moment we arrived. The location was perfect and allowed for an easy walk to the beach, as well as a quick walk to the ice cream shop at the end of the street :) The pool in the back was a bonus and provided a great alternative to the beach. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing beach vacation!

We made memories to last a lifetime at Palm Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

Awesome location! Just a short walk to the beach! We loved having our own private pool! Many great things to share about the house...plenty of room, plenty of seating, good layout, looked like the pictures. Any issues we had with it were quickly taken care of by maintenance. Just wish we could have stayed another week!

Incredible vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home on several occasions and would not even consider looking elsewhere for the perfect vacation home. The owners go above and beyond for their guests and are wonderful to work with.

The property is well maintained and equipped with everything you could ever need on vacation. The beach is as nice, if not nicer, than tropical beaches we have visited. The white sand and clear blue water are picture perfect. There are plenty of attractions and restaurants nearby for people of all ages. One of our favorite places to visit is the ice cream shop located at the end of the street.

The close proximity to the beach makes it convenient for guests to come and go as they please. The pool is clean and inviting after a long day at the beach (and well lit for night swimming!). The home is large and spacious with the third floor being ideal for children and teenagers. Each level of the home has an outdoor area to enjoy your morning coffee, an evening cocktail, a good book, or the scenic views. The seven days of sun we had contributed to the perfect girls getaway, thank you Brian and Barb!
