Situated on Lake Rousseau is Paradise Found! Relax and enjoy all of the amenities this wonderful pool home and its location have to offer! An open and spacious floor-plan awaits you including 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms that comfortably sleeps six. Enjoy a perfect cup of coffee from the Keurig coffee maker while you watch the sunrise in the large screened porch overlooking oak trees draped with Spanish Moss, views of the lake and the wildlife that frequent the area, very calming and peaceful! When you’re not fishing, bird watching, laying under the trees on the hammock, or exploring the lake with the canoe and two kayaks, take a dip in the refreshing screen enclosed swimming pool. As your day of adventure comes to an end enjoy the sunset while having a marshmallow roast and your favorite beverage around a roaring fire at large backyard fire pit. Fishing is the name of the game on this lake and the covered boathouse has 2 slips waiting for your boat! There is Goldendale public boat ramp just a short run to our dock. Run your boat east up the Withlacoochee River to the sparkling clear waters of the Rainbow River where you can swim, tube, fish or tie your boat and dine at one of two waterfront restaurants, Swampy's or the Blue Gator Bar and Grill. If you boat west to Inglis Dam you can tie up and hike the nature trails and explore. Minutes by car takes you to Dunnellon’s antique shops, boat rentals, diving, snorkeling, and tubing or kayaking adventures on the sparkling clear waters of the Rainbow River and Rainbow Springs State Park. Drive a short distance west to Crystal River and swim with manatees, dive for scallops, or visit the beach and go shelling or ocean fishing. You can also trailer your boat to the Gulf of Mexico for saltwater fishing and scalloping! The ideal location, so much to see and do!

A wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. Was perfect for our family.
We had a great time. We were there with our 3 grandsons who love to fish and swim. Having the dock and pool they could go back and forth between was ideal. They caught fish everyday we were there and even a very LARGE catfish. I spent much of my time in the hammock with a book, where I had the prettiest cardinal visit me every day. We had a hawk visit each day, many other types of large birds stopped by, saw many large turtles and a small alligator. We didn't have a chance to use the firepit which we meant to do, it is a nice touch out there. The neighbors were very friendly. Crystal River is close we went over there one day. The home is clean, has everything needed. Having a washer/dryer was nice and even toys for the pool. I think we all spent most of our time on the back porch. Even though there were plenty of TV's we didn't have them on much which was a nice change. The owners were very accomadating and easy to get a hold of.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review and kind words. We're so glad you had a wonderful time here in Paradise. A great place to relax and recharge the batteries! :-)
Relaxing and peaceful trip
Owners were very helpful they responded very quickly. Home had everything that was promised. Very well stocked, clean and my family had a great relaxing time.
Paradise Found is heaven found!
Paradise Found was one of the best houses I have stayed on VRBO. The setting is so peaceful and quiet. The house is clean, comfortable and well-equipped. It was just me and my husband but the house is spacious enough for a family. The yard is well-groomed; a hammock hanging from the trees is just the perfect spot for an afternoon nap. A screened-in porch also faces the lake, which is nice for rainy days.
We caught bluegill and bass right off the dock. Also, we enjoyed viewing the amazing array of bird life--herons, cranes, gulls and even a hawk. We also spotted turtles and alligators. There are a couple of kayaks and a canoe on the property, which was great--we did not have to lug ours.
I especially loved floating in the pool while enjoying the view of the lake with moss hanging from the trees. Plus, the neighbors are so friendly and we felt very safe. I wanted to just move in. The location is accessible to both Crystal River and to Dunnellon.
The only negative aspect of this vacation was leaving! We hope to be back very soon. Thanks, Karl and Debbie, for the hospitality! It was, indeed, truly paradise found!
WOW Deborah! What a wonderful 5 Star review! You really captured the true essence of what this home and it's location have to offer. Just give us a call when you are ready to come back to Paradise! We'll keep the light on for you! :)
Peaceful and total relaxation!!
We decided to rent this home instead of staying in a hotel, and we are SO glad we did! The view of the lake from the backyard is beautiful. We loved using the kayaks and canoe that comes with the property. We came to paddle board at Crystal River, but found we enjoyed the tranquility of this lake house just as much! Everything we needed was available at the house. The pool was clean and the house was very clean. We really enjoyed relaxing in the hammock after a full day at Crystal River. I would definitely come back and highly recommend this property. The Schroeders were very accommodating.
Wow Sherri! Thank you for the wonderful review. The canoe is the newest edition to the vacation adventure at Paradise Found. So glad you enjoyed your time with us and are welcome back anytime!
Beautiful house in a great location!!

Thank you for the awesome 5 Star review! So glad you brought your boat and enjoyed the lake. Hope to see you again soon.
House was clean and comfortable. Only stayed one night but back for the week this week.
Thank you for staying here in Paradise! Glad you enjoyed your stay, too bad it was for work not pleasure! Maybe next time! :)
