Property Description

As soon as you arrive at this palatial residence, you will feel blessed and highly privileged. A double entry paver drive adorned with towering palms leads up to a stately staircase that sweeps up to a classically columned veranda. Towering floor to ceiling palladium windows flanks each side of the regal double glass door entry. Here you may relish the view of the glistening gulf across the street with the beach access which just steps away.

Once inside A Bit of Paradise, you are warmly embraced by the elegant yet comfortable surroundings that will make you immediately feel at home. It was deliberately designed to provide plenty of space for entertaining with two spacious living areas and separate sleeping quarters on different levels. It acts as the perfect place for your next beach vacation with multiple family members or groups of friends. The main floor of the home offers a large open concept Great Room with an open kitchen that includes a wrap-around bar that has raised counter seating for five. Here you may easily serve favorite drinks, appetizers or to set out a tasty buffet-style meal. There are two dining areas on each side which allows everyone to be seated for a fun family feast. One dining area has six ornate café styled chairs while the other has seating with four ladder-backed contemporarily designed chairs. Each one is in its own dining alcove beside an elegant arched atrium window.

An open sun deck out back on a waterfront canal has additional tables and chairs for dining al fresco or sipping tropical drinks while enjoying the salty gulf breezes. A dock down below allows you to anchor a rental pontoon boat to cruise around the marina or experience adventures at Crab Island. Ocean Reef guests receive special reduced rates for such rentals as part of our complimentary Reef Rewards program at nearby Harborwalk Village, which also features restaurants, lively bars, and seasonal festivals. One of the two comfortably furnished living areas opens out upon this deck with double glass doors and windows that provide views. The other living area has a den with a wrap-around couch and tropical accent chairs that opens into a Recreation Room with a Foosball Table as well as a richly inlaid gaming table.

The Master Bedroom and two Guest Rooms are on the main level. The elegant Master Suite has a king sized bed facing a TV entertainment console and a private luxury bath with double vanities as well as a soaking tub. Two Guest Bedrooms that share a full hall bath also have charming king beds as well. Another Guest Bedroom with a queen sized bed and a bunk room that sleeps four have access to another hall bath. All of the Guest Quarters include a TV for viewing.
