Guest Since 2009
Our first stay at Paradise Point was a surprise to my husband (who was then my boyfriend). We ate at the Barefoot Bar and Grill and took a stroll after dinner. I was following his lead, and oddly enough, he chose to walk right past our room; earlier that day I had checked in and got our key without him knowing!
We laughed and talked on the beach, and on the way back to the car I said “I would love to stay here sometime”. I walked by our room and peeked in the window and said “I wonder what the rooms are like?” At this point, Richard was getting a little uncomfortable. He had his arms crossed and was standing 10 feet behind me. He asked what I was doing. I said, “I wonder if a regular credit card would open the door?” I reached in my wallet to pretend to get a credit card, but really grabbed the room key and opened the door. I said “Come on, let’s go inside!” He was shaking his head, thinking I was really breaking in, so I started laughing and told him my sneaky plan.
We came back another time in the winter with our teenage children. It is the one place my teenagers will hang out with me and have a good time. We swam in every pool and rented bikes. Even my 16 year old son said it was his favorite vacation.
On April 23 of last year, Richard and I got married on the Island Point Lawn. The staff was excellent and everything went perfect. They even upgraded our room to the Governor’s Suite! We are planning to sail our boat to Paradise Point and stay for our 1 year anniversary.
I took a picture of the Island Point Lawn from the Governor’s Suite right before we got married, and still use that picture as my screen saver at work. I love the picture, because if you look real close you can see my husband waiting at the altar for me!
