Here are some tips that we have especially become aware of from our most recent vacation at Paradise Found, a Joe Lamb property:
|These Double-Double rooms were great for teens and families|
2) Look for houses where the beds are made before you arrive. After the prep and packing,driving, shopping, and unpacking, the last thing you want to do is make 7-10 beds. I have done it, but I much prefer to spend my time at the beach instead of making beds on that first day.
3) If you have young children make sure that pools and hot tubs have separate gates to prevent them from entering those areas unaccompanied.
4) At the beach I love a house with a screened porch- it is a perfect place to watch the sunrise with your coffee in the morning, provides a place for more boisterous card and board games, and a place to pick crabs or have other messy (or smelly) foods. It provides a respite from bugs, and shade during the sun's highest points. You get to enjoy all the great things about the out of doors without the bad!
5) Paradise Found had everything labeled so I knew exactly which switch turned on the ceiling fans and which turned on the lights. Information like how to use the TV, DVD and stereo , and even the network key were readily accessible. I knew exactly where to look for the garbage disposal switch, a cookie sheet or plastic cups. It was the most renter friendly home I have ever been in because of the time and attention placed in making sure you could find everything you needed.
|Amazing kitchen, huh?|
|The counters were perfect for setting up help-yourself meals!|

|Lots of room for crab dinner!|

Knowing what to look for is as important as knowing what you want and will help ensure that your memories of your vacation are everything that will be your own Paradise Found!!
