Bedrooms 4
Space 3,000 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with private dock and gorgeous water views.

This is an oasis for relaxing and family fun or a romantic rendezvous. Style, comfort and walkability. This is a very quiet residential neighborhood.

The house:

The house has just been completely remodeled, decorated and furnished by a professional interior decorator. It is immaculate and beautiful. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking. There are gorgeous views of the water from both levels. Flat panels TV's in every room if you need to catch the action, or leave 'em off and focus on the wall to wall views of the intracoastal.

The yard:

You own private dock awaits in the back. The dolphins play in the water by the dock every morning and evening. Sit on the dock and face west for a beautiful sunset as dinner cooks on the grill.

The beach:

The white sandy beach is only a half a mille walk from the house. The shallow waters of the gulf are calm, and so warm. Stroll for miles down the white sand beaches. See pelicans diving for dinner, little pipers pecking in the sand, snowy egrets wandering down the beach, and dolphins swimming offshore. If you want a romantic walk in the evening, this is it.

This oasis is the perfect spot for your family vacation or romantic getaway.

About Melissa

My husband and I wanted a home that was an oasis for our family and we wanted to make a home that everyone would love to vacation at year after year. We take a lot of pride in this house. We spent uncountable hours working on what we feel is the perfect vacation home.

Melissa purchased this house in 2012

Why Melissa chose Paradise Island

We love the stunning water views, the private dock and the proximity to the beach. The property has been completely remodeled, decorated and furnished by a professional interior decorator.

What makes this house unique

My husband and I love to drink our coffee on the dock in the morning while we watch our own private dolphin show. After breakfast, we like to put on our flip flops and stroll a half a mile down to the beautiful beach. In the evenings we love to watch the sunset while we relax with a home cooked meal, using our fully stocked kitchen and outdoor BBQ. We have seen manatees right beneath our dock. It is magical to dangle our feet over the dock and quietly watch the great animals come up for air while they watch us.

Perfect location, gorgeous views, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a few days at this property this summer. We loved it! It is located right on a bay of the intracoastal and the house is set up to capitalize on the view. Upstairs, both the master bedroom and living room/loft have their own sets of sliding glass doors that let out onto a balcony overlooking the crystal blue water. The kitchen, living room and dining room are essentially one big room with extra-large sliding glass doors adjacent to large windows that look out over the water. We felt like we were in a paradise without even having to step outside.

The house was large and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and huge rooms. Everything looked very clean and brand new – from the appliances to the furniture.

We spent a lot of time in the backyard as it has a dock on the water, a grill, and comfortable patio furniture. My family and I ate breakfast on the dock in the mornings, and saw dolphins right off the dock almost every time. One came right up to the dock – we could practically touch it. Another day, manatees came and spent about 30 minutes swimming around near the dock. Large, strange-looking tropical birds hung out in the neighbors’ yard. It was a nature-lovers paradise!

It was about a 2 – 3 block walk from the quiet neighborhood in which the house was located to the beach and main drag of town. The beach is very wide and clean, and the town has lots of fun restaurants, some of which played live music on the beach in the evening. We had a good time looking in the little shops and relaxing on the beach.
