Wow. That's what we always aspire to do! We love doing it and we love having such wonderful people as you both are. And... by the way, Thanks for leaving our place like no one had been here for three nights! Airbnb people are the best!

I had a superb stay in every way. Mike and Ron are outstanding hosts. They go above and beyond to show their guests extraordinary hospitality, welcoming their guests with open arms. Their place is impeccable down to every detail - they even stocked the fridge with some food to …

Our guest from Los Angeles was most delightful, sincere and gracious under very sad and hopeless circumstances. The quite, private and secure environment here offers much peace and serenity ; a perfect place for meditation, prayer, quiet solitude and rest after a challenging day out in the everyday world. We feel blessed you found us and welcome you to return for a different experience, or for a similar one. All our best, also.

Everything is above 5 star!! I’m local but got the cottage for family. They loved everything about the cottage! I will continue for future friends and family. Mike and Ron were great!

Simpatico!!! We had a great time with your Mother and Sister. Sitting on the patio and sharing. What experiences ! We really enjoyed and learned so much from your Mother's past about the history we've read so much about. I'll always remember and will pass it on. Ron & I look forward to coffee with you anytime you're off the beach.

Beautiful, serene, spotless and the sofa beds were VERY comfy!!!!!!!!!! I would recommend this to anyone in need of this type of home away from home!!!!!!!
Michael User Profile
Response from Michael:
Comfort level is so important. We use only 100% Brooklinen Cotton sheets which are the most phenomenal sheets we have yet discovered! AND THEN... we iron them to heighten the cool, crisp feel that's perfect for our climate here in Florida. These are percale which is a traditional one-yarn-over and one-yarn-under weave resulting in matte finish, light weight and breathable perfection!!! Lorie, thanks for the compliments, we keep working on making this better and better and also thanks for the landscaping idea on the view from the east window. We have implemented it and really appreciate your suggestion!

We loved the private setting of the space provided. Everything we needed and more. Quiet, cozy and comfortable! We love that you accept pets, our little dog loved it too. Close to parks and short drive to the beach. Thank you Mike & Ron! You will be recommended for future stays.

Response from Michael:
Ron and I really enjoyed Amanda and Marcus and hope to see them anytime they are in the area. We know they are real engaged in life - very busy, and we want them to know that just popping by to say hello without prior arrangements, is fine with us; we hope they'll take us up on it! We very happy they are moving here and perhaps while here at Paradise Cottage saw another side of Florida living. Airbnb provides not only a place to stay, but it serves as a most spiritual experience for those who seek the opportunity to connect with other human beings or in quiet solitude. In our case here at Paradise Cottage, it also gives a traveler a chance to commiserate with nature here on our jungle-like property or at any of the numerous parks, and nature trails within close proximity or on the beaches which begin a mile and a half down the road. Like many others who have come our way, Mandy and Marc have a special place in our hearts. We have much gratitude for all we have around us and the people that are guided to choose to be here. Thank you two for keeping it fresh!

Absolutely perfect!

Laura’s private feedback for you: “Just a side note, the toilet makes a super loud noise probably once an hour, nothing that bothered me but thought you’d want to know. Thank you for such a wonderful little place! You guys have thought of everything, your love for the space shows, and the cleanliness was top notch” We thank Laura for the "heads up" on the toilet fill tank flapper valve which was easily remedied with a simple adjustment which took 10 seconds! If there is a problem when staying with us, it's always a simple adjustment! Just inform us asap and we'll respond. That's part of our lives in the Airbnb community as this is not a hotel with a staff, it's our home, our property, and our livelihood, and it's imperative for us to respond to any concern, problem or detail as quickly, as quietly and as thoroughly as we can. Laura, a first time Airbnb-er, We thank you for the sterling review and accolades, but we thank you most for revealing a problem to us we were unaware we had. You are indeed a wonderful addition to our Airbnb Community.

This was a fantastic experience. Everything was super clean, which was our biggest priority, and Michael & Ron provided a really cute, relaxing place to spend our long weekend. They had lots of tips for local activities, restaurants, and beaches. They provided some nice extras, i…

Even though our stated policy is a 4:00 pm check in time, we were able to accommodate Michael and Kristine with a 10:30 am welcome because the previous guests had check out early two days before. We do the best we can to be flexible when guests have requests. Kristine and Michael had very early flights from New York which got them out of bed at 3:30 am after a long week of work. They were very tired, but with a few hours rest, they were off to the beach for a full day of sun and fun - and relaxation! They were able to take advantage of the whole day here, as checked in guests, because they communicated with us and our preparation/cleaning schedule was amendable. It's our delight when we can accommodate our guests' desires! We are proud we have amenities galore, and, we know the Cottage is super clean, but to be able to insure our guests are happy and contented beyond the norm, that's our highest goal; that's our aspiration!!! We not only appreciate their wonderful review, but we know we did the best we could do, and we know they knew it. They may be under 30 and married less than a year, but these first time Airbnbers are the best and we're fortunate to have them in our Airbnb community.
