  • 3 generation vacation

    "Just returned from a week at Paradise Retreat with family spanning 3 generations. weather was not fully cooperative but having the amenities and location of this home saved the day. Everything in the home was perfect and my grandchildren could not get enough of the pool and playing in the safety of the fenced in back yard. quiet residential neighborhood great for morning stroll. Barefoot Beach is 5 minutes away and they got to know me on a first name basis at the Publix grocery store that meets all your needs and is two minutes from the house. Home is extremely well prepared for quests from kitchen supplies to pool towels and beach equipment including toys for small children, even more so following our departure."

  • Super clean, well stocked and decorated beautifully!

    "I have rented many condos/houses using VRBO and I can tell you that this condo is the cleanest and most updated place I have ever stayed! Beds were comfy, wifi was reliable and we had a fun time relaxing on the screened in porch while our daughter napped. The only suggestion I can offer is having a drying rack avaible for bathing suits and towels since there isn't a dryer in the unit. The complex is older but it too is very clean and the pools are fabulous! We will be back next June!"

  • Best in class

    "It seemed like a good idea at the time. Beach Bungalow Bliss was a little bigger than we needed since it was only the two of us, but it came with 2 bikes and was only a mile to a beach to the southwest (Vanderbilt) and another one to the northwest (Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park). Coincidentally, we happened to be spending a weekend about 5 miles away the weekend before this trip. So I contacted the owners to get the address so we could do a “drive by” while we were in the area. To our surprise and good fortune, they were in the area at the time and graciously invited us to stop by for a tour of the place. They gave us a thorough tour of a very nicely decorated 2/2 with a screened in front patio, a large “Florida room” in the back, a garage (with the 2 bikes!), and a *fully* equipped kitchen. The web site pictures don’t do it justice. It is the nicest house on the block. When we came back a week later to actually use it, everything was in order. We arrived to find a nice “welcome basket”. The appliances are all in fine working order. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen is fun to work in. All the utensils are better than most basic VRBO setups. My wife loved the potato peeler, but alas, we had to leave it behind! The first few days started as a working vacation. I had to have good internet access for work. The service there worked just fine. The place has easy access to the two beaches, a bike trail, several restaurants, Publix, Walgreen and CVS, Dunkin Donuts, etc. In a 10 minute drive you can find more of all that plus tourist attractions, excellent ice cream (Kilwin’s), shopping (The Village, 5th Ave in Naples), water sports (kayak eco-tours with Finseeker Guided Adventures, Hydrobike). Several days started with breakfast on the front patio. It was very quiet and surprisingly private. My wife liked early morning bike rides. She would leisurely peddle up and down the streets on the canals across Vanderbilt Drive and admire the mansion homes in the area. Later in the day was too hot for that, but by then it’s nap time anyway! All of our dealings with the owners were cordial and professional. We have stayed in many VRBO locations in the past but this one in “Best in class”. So, what seemed like a good idea turned out to be a great idea!"

  • Beautiful home

    "The owners of this home have thought of everything and nothing has been overlooked. The house is beautiful as well as comfortable. Location is breath taking with views of the gulf from each room. Quiet yet an easy walk to Anna Maria's shops. The only negative is the week went by far too quickly....not to worry already securing dates for next year!"
