Amenities at A Taste of Paradise

A Taste of Paradise of paradise is just a stone's throw from some of the most spectacular sunsets anywhere in Florida.  

Click on any area in the floor plan or beach picture to view photos of that area.

Pool & Deck

The extra large pool deck has a full size dining table and chairs, and there is ample room for sunbathing or sitting in the shade. In addition to seating for 10 around the table there are 4 sunloungers, while two of the dining chairs are recliners with ottomans. All patio furniture has luxury padded cushions.

The pool benefits from a salt-water system, which means no harsh chlorine to dry your skin, and bleach your hair and swimsuits. The water is the same salinity as your tears, so no more red eyes, and the water is so soft that it actually benefits your skin. The pool can be heated for the winter months. The large garden has a lawn and flowering shrubs - part of the rear garden is a conservation area for nesting Scrub Jays.


The villa is built on the edge of a conservation area for the protected Scrub Jays. These delightful birds nest in the trees all around. The part of the garden behind the pool is protected for them, as is the area of land to the right of the villa. Being situated at the end of a sandy lane means there will never be traffic passing the door, and you will be able to enjoy the natural surroundings which make this part of Florida so unique. You may be lucky enough to see some of the gopher turtles in the garden along with squirrels, and some of the other beautiful sub-tropical birds, which abound. It is sometimes hard to believe that from this haven you are just minutes from great shops and restaurants. All this and the beach too - truly a 'one-of-a-kind' holiday experience.

Bicycles are provided for your enjoyment, as there are many quiet lanes to explore. (Nothing too energetic as the surrounding area is pretty level!).
