Top Quality! This is the example home for College Vacation Rental Courses!
The main floor master bedroom has a King bed, dresser, closets, TV/Cable and night stands. The beds were upgraded to the most comfortable and luxurious ones offered by our decorator. Several guests have asked us where they can purchase these comfortable beds. In the closet are two pack-n-plays, a high chair, three strollers, toys, and gate for guest use while staying at Paradise on Ice. The second master bedroom, located upstairs, has a King bed, bench, dresser, TV/Cable, and ensuite bath with 2 sinks, a tub/shower and water closet. There are two themed rooms (the décor is subtle enough to be enjoyable for guests of all ages, but of particular enjoyment for children). The Frozen Paradise has a twin and a double bed, dresser, night stand, TV/Cable, closet and books. The Avengers room has a twin and a double bed, dresser, night stand, TV/cable, closet and books.

About Chris & Julie Davies
We were asked by a college to write a course and textbook about Vacation Rental Management 411 and it's being taught in colleges across the country! Our 2-day intensive STR Certification Course is even being mandated by city leaders for their STR hosts. Why? Because the Vacation Home Rental "Best Practices" we teach will help create a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable environment for guests and a successful model for vacation home hosts. We apply these "best practices" in Paradise on Ice! We've worked in hospitality management and healthcare for over 30 years (we opened our first B&B over 30 years ago and Julie was also a respected resort hotel General Manager and has taught hospitality and lodging management at universities). We grew up mainly in the Western USA, but have traveled extensively. Julie was an AFS Foreign Exchange Scholar in the Philippines and Chris served a mission in South Africa. Our children live, served and attended school in Mexico, Costa Rica, Germany, and in many US states. We've studied several languages (some better than others). We've hosted dozens of foster children and foreign exchange scholars and we have dozens more nieces and nephews who frequently stay with us. We embrace the following saying by Mahatma Gandhi: "I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any." We believe in life-long learning---and we put that learning into practice.
Chris & Julie Davies purchased this Townhome in 2015
Why Chris & Julie Davies chose Four Corners
As we near retirement, we wanted a vacation home that could be a gathering place for multiple generations of our family, extended family, and friends---and that could be shared with others through vacation rental. Paradise Palms Resort is a great location with a variety of desirable amenities. It's close to world-famous theme parks, which we plan to enjoy often, but the resort is also a vacation destination on it's own right. Paradise Palms Resort's pool area and clubhouse are fabulous! And we love the unique Boardwalk experience---it's like a private Florida Everglades Adventure always unveiling a new discovery as we walk over the secluded bridge. Most Paradise Palms Resort guests don't even know this unique feature exists, but our lane has special access to The Boardwalk. We enjoy the lay-out and décor of our townhome, which allows for spaces to relax and recharge. A bit of the "Frozen" theme is found in all rooms, but it is subtle (we didn't want to be bombarded by a bold Disney or Universal theme after being in the parks all day, but wanted our grandchildren to relax in their own themed rooms). Guests of all ages have enjoyed the Frozen and Avenger bedrooms. The kitchen is a joy to cook in and the pool is very refreshing----a private retreat! It's our goal to have a vacation home by each of our children so we can spoil our grandchildren who live there (and sleep in our own bed) and make it easy for the whole family to get together, enjoy excursions, make meals together, and share bedtime stories before we tuck them in and retire to our private suite. This is a wonderful place to stay when there are just two of us or when we have 10 family members and friends! A great home-base in Florida that we share with others through vacation rentals.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our Townhome is in the Newest and Most Exclusive Area of Paradise Palms Resort, on a Quiet Lane With Special Access to The Boardwalk. It's also closer to the Theme Parks and a variety of Shopping options since we can take back-road shortcuts from our security-gated street. There's ample parking directly in front of the home. When we're in our private splash pool, we like the privacy and enjoy the view of beautiful flowers and greenery (rather than looking at other pools, cars, and people). We worked with a decorator to create a subtle "Frozen" theme in calm colors and with comfortable furnishings. Children love the magical feel of the themed rooms. We didn't want the theme to be too overwhelming after a full day at theme parks, or to make any older guests feel uncomfortable in the theme rooms. If you move a few pillows, it's just a comfortable bedroom with a bit of magic in the furnishings. We didn't cut corners on comfort or amenities here. We invested in quality beds and bedding. We don't have just one stroller or pack n play to choose from---we have a selection and we don't charge extra fees for using them. We have a selection of books, toys, games, and DVDs for guests to enjoy during their stay. And the kitchen is more fully equipped than most vacation rental homes. We even have cookbooks, including one where we have shared vacation tips and recipes. We also have a journal where guests also share tips about the area that have made their trip more enjoyable, and a "share basket" full of brochures and maps. Our guest information binder also shares great information about the area, resorts, Paradise Palms Resort, and the townhome. Our Grandchildren and Guests say they love Paradise on Ice--- and so do we! We think you will, too. It's a Wonderful Oasis!
