Private Island Retreat ~1/2 to Scallops- Land Accessible

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, 18 Sleeps

Not just a home rental, but a Private Island Complex in the Ozello Keys. Experience the Real Florida here on the Nature Coast; only minutes from Crystal River and Homosassa.

Land bridge access with electronic security gate gives you the privacy and convenience of driving to/from your own private island with amenities you won't get from any other home rental! No traffic noise to hinder the awesome wildlife and beautiful serenity here.

Swim or relax in one of the 2 spas or the 45’ solar-heated pool with 2 32’ waterfalls and wet bar. As you relax in one of the stargazing chairs by the bonfire ring (wood included with your stay), watch one of Mother Nature’s night shows, unhampered by city lights.

All linens, towels and dishes are furnished in both units, each having a full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, stove and all cooking utensils, including glasses, dishes, pots and pans.

Rent both upper and lower homes (2 bedroom 1.5 bath each) and only your group will be in Paradise*.

When you rent here, you rent an island retreat complex with many amenities. Be sure you know what is included with your rental, as we have become aware of others making it appear they have enough kayaks for your group; most have 1 or 2 at best, whereas we provide 14. Whether it's paddling with dolphins or exploring some of the 300 islands with one of the 14 kayaks/2 canoes that come at no extra charge, this alone could save a family of 16 more than $800 a day!

Rent a private island, not just a home-in-a-row on a canal. 360 degrees of open water views with very few boats going by!

We also can set you up to snorkel with the manatee or have a private all day tour of Crystal River, including snorkeling and fishing on your own private pontoon boat with your own licensed guide.

Make this the vacation of a lifetime for just a few dollars more.

*Caretakers on property to take care of any needs you may have.

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great time last spring on paradise island. We are looking at it now for the holiday. We have 18 in our group and is hard to find anywere to handel us comfortable. There we not only had room to sleep. But all went kayaking togeather 2 days of our week stay. I am hopeing with the fall weather that the fishing will be as good if not better than spring.
We enjoyed our stay. Managment was great. Very helpfull when my child tried to hook up xbox and then could not get tv back on at 10pm. But not realy around other wise. We would all recomend this place highly. Heck the fact we are going there 2 times in 6 months should say tons

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the island after 10 years or design and detailing it is always nice to hear that people enjoyed there time in paradise. We try to offer a unique experience of island living. We do offer so much more for just a few dollars more. Like with your family who did there research they find that although we are a little more money per person you more than get that back with all the island extras. Don't forget to tell me you stayed here before as you get a discount for re-booking!

vacation at paradise found island

  • 5 of 5
we stayed at this island and were more than pleased! we had a great time with no problems at all. the owner was close for anything we needed or questions that we had otherwise we really didnt see him. the pool was gorgeous! loved sitting on the deckside by the pool and just lounging and having a great time with friends.
i was a little surprised when we got there, the homes were much nicer and more comfortable than what the photos show.
ken, the owner, took us on a jet ski tour out to the gulf and we seen a ton of dolphins and some stingrays and even a couple sharks! great day!
what can i say other than GREAT VACATION!!

Location

Activity and Interests

Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park is one of the best places in the state to view manatees, some of which are treated here before being released into the wild. An excellent value at $13/adult, $5/child, spend the afternoon at the zoo and research center (15 minute drive from Paradise).

Rainbow Springs State Park offers swimming, snorkeling, canoeing and kayaking, hiking and wildlife viewing (squirrels, otter, turtles, alligators, songbirds, hummingbirds, red-shoulder hawks, osprey, barred owls, and various water birds).

Weeki Wachee Springs is where underwater performances by mermaids (women wearing fish tails) can be viewed in an aquarium-like setting. Visitors can swim at Buccaneer Bay, see the Misunderstood Creatures Animal Show, or take a riverboat ride down the Weeki Wachee River.

Crystal River Archaeological State Park is a 61 acre National Historic Landmark, activities include salt and fresh water fishing, bird watching and a boat tour of Crystal River.

Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins Historic State Park contains the remnants of the once-thriving 5,100-acre sugar plantation, serving as a supplier of sugar products for southern troops during the Civil War.

Take a manatee snorkel trip for as little as $30 (let us know and we can book it for you).

Many Orlando area amusement parks and attractions are just a day trip away.
