Our family had a wonderful time in Paradise! We recommend it highly. We had 8 adults, an 18-year old, and 9 children ages 18 months to 12 years of age. There was plenty of room and fun for all. We brought our boat and kayaks, and we rented a jet ski. We went skiing, knee boarding, jet skiing, kayaking, and swimming. There was a shallow area for young children to play in the sandy (and some clay) bottom. The water also got deeper for people to swim near the dock and jump off the end of the dock. Although the water wasn’t very clear (it was August so it may have been clearer earlier in the summer) we felt comfortable swimming in it.

The screened in porch area as well as the outdoor deck provided a lot of extra room for eating and sitting. The lawn was in good shape for playing lawn games when we arrived, and it was also quickly cut during the week making bocce ball and croquet (brought from home) fun. The nice open area made star gazing and looking at the full moon fun, especially with a telescope.

There was a lot of room to spread out to play games and sit around inside. We played board games from home and some limited video games on the TV. The TV wasn’t used much but it seemed to have good reception. We also found time for crafts and sewing, and a treasure hunt.

The kitchen was well equipped. I think there were 5 coffee makers 😀. The island and kitchen set up made it easy for several people to cook together as well as leaving passage for others to walk through. There was a refrigerator in the kitchen, downstairs in the lower game area, and one in the garage so there was plenty of room for food supplies. It was also very convenient to buy food at the local Food Lion. The prices were good, not high like you might expect in more commercial areas.

The Internet was slow or poor, partly due to a cloudy week, but we saw this as a plus for Paradise. A slower Internet encouraged people to spend more time together and explore some different means of family entertainment inside as well as outside. Most of the people had good cell coverage; however, with T Mobile, I had no bars inside and only 1 or 2 bars outside.

Paradise is a great location for a relaxing and fun group get away and we were all glad we were able to experience it.

Great layout, kids love the yard and all the room to play bocci ball, badminton and just running around! Perfect swimming area; even fished from boathouse when it rained.

The house is on a beautiful part of the lake - sunset views are wonderful. Big plus that they have their own boat ramp. A two-bay covered boat house was perfect for our group. Having three full refrigerators was also a great feature. This really could be a gem if the house were better maintained. Needs a lot of updating, cleaning and extermination (ants).

Note that there is a steep hill going down to the dock. It is not easy access for older family members (or me as I had pain/ weakness from a recent broken leg). The 'sand beach' is misleading - it's a small square area that needs a new load of sand (currently not enough for kids to play in).

The lower level is great for large families to gather and hang out: pool table, game table, bar (with refrigerator), tvs - with easy access outside.

The bathrooms were well cleaned and had good toiletries provided.

Air conditioning worked well during a hot week.

Renters: Bring folding chairs for the dock and fire pit area. Also, fire wood if you plan to have a fire (not provided). We also brought a party tent that we set up on the dock for shade as there is no covered area on the dock if you are hanging out by the water.
Manager response:

The view of the water and the layout of this home were amazing!
Helen B. May 2021
My husband and I rented this house out for our 10 year anniversary. It is beautiful and peaceful. Had a wonderful time with family.
Loreanyi F. May 2021
The home was perfectly clean and fresh with an abundance of towels and toiletries, the boat dock was equipped with some floaties and enough paddles to use the kayak and rowboat, we got lucky with the weather as it was sunny and warm every day during our stay. The grill and fire pit were easy to use. One shower head and the TVs were not working upon our arrival, but maintenance fixed it the same day without even having to disturb us at the lake. The WiFi is spotty as to be expected but it’s nice to unplug. Great location, just a few minutes from the cove and shopping center. The views are to die for especially from the master bathroom and patio. Would love to come again if they weren’t fully booked for summer!

The House was beautiful and it was the perfect location to host my friends for a Halloween party with close friends.
jessica c. Oct 2020
This house was so nice! There is so much space inside and out!! It was very comfortable and felt like a home! The provided items were amazing and so thoughtful!! We would definitely stay here again!!
Stacy B. Oct 2020
We had 12 family members and had plenty of space for remote work, remote school, and relaxation. We appreciated the four master bedrooms. The views were amazing. We brought a kayak and enjoyed the canoe/kayak, fishing and swimming. Our stay was during the week, so it was fairly quiet on the lake. We ate our dinners on the spacious deck and loved our evening bonfires with s'mores.

We had a few minor issues in which we received quick response by Vacasa and local maintenance.

Thanks to the owners for sharing their home!
Zack Y. Sep 2020
Cons: The house has a lot of bugs, specially flies. The living room sofa was uncomfortable to sit.

Pros: the house provide bed sets. Basement is awesome with a pool table. Love the fire pit and gas grill.
Manager response:
Hi, Zack! Thank you for telling us about your Vacasa experience at Paradise. The house has been treated by a pest control company, and we have made the owner aware of your comments regarding the couch. We hope to see you again!

Our leader team absolutely enjoyed our week stay at Paradise!
We called it our Work-Cation!

Our company (doTERRA) global convention had been converted to livestream only due to the changes and restrictions over the past months. We wanted to find a place where a small group of us could still come together to watch convention together as well as team building & get caught up after not seeing eachother for months.

This house was very spacious! Our group enjoyed coffee on the screened in porch, meals on the back deck, fireside chats, we brought our massage table for aromatouch sessions on the bottom patio with the view of the lake with comforting breezes...ahh relaxation! We loved bringing our boat to the property and keeping it docked. Several of our team members took canoe rides and we also enjoyed several nights of fishing off of the dock.

The beds are super comfortable and we loved watching movies in the basement on the super comfortable sectional with big tv viewing! We also appreciated having many bathrooms available to us giving eachother space and privacy.

Sunrises & Sunsets are beautiful from the property!

Linda . Aug 2020
House has a great layout, nice cook’s kitchen, awesome screened-in porch and plenty of bathrooms! While raining, we fished from inside the boathouse, it was perfect! We absolutely had a blast!
shana T. Aug 2020
I will not be renting this home again. It was very dirty and weathered. It needs some major TLC. It was a shame bc the grounds were nice and it’s in a great location on the lake.
Manager response:
Hello, Shana! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We regret that the condition of this home left more to be desired. Please know that that is not the typical standard to which we hold ourselves. We will work with our local staff to identify and address areas of the home needing improvement. We welcome this opportunity to grow and provide better experiences to come. We hope to have you back for an even more satisfying stay.
Lucy B. Aug 2020
We’ve stayed at Paradise before. Lots of room for the family. Great amenities at the water! Sandy beach area, nice dock and two jet ski pads.
Ann G. Jul 2020
There were beautiful sun rizes, sun sets and bountiful fishing. The home is arranged where even with a crowd you can find a quiet space when you want some alone time. Adults and the children both enjoyed the lake and all it had to offer.
Marjorie B. Jul 2020
Spacious house, but there was an ant infestation in the kitchen, wireless service was not good, mildew in the showers and stains on carpet and cushions.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying in one of our homes. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry you encountered some unwelcome guests during your visit. The owner of this home called out a professional exterminator to review the home and has taken care of any potential bug infestation so future guests do not encounter these issues. We are glad your stay was otherwise enjoyable and we look forward to hosting you again!
Stacy H. Jun 2020
Nice large house with HUGE basement. Had plenty of areas for people to hang out and relax.
Kim/Amanda D. Jun 2020
We loved the space this house offered with multiple families and middle schoolers. The dock was perfect for jumping, swimming, and tying tubes together for floating. We also loved having our own boat ramp!
Charlene J. Jun 2020
Great house. Beautiful property and lakeside access. Please replace stained and dated living room furniture and carpeting and then it would be perfect
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, Charlene. We are delighted that you were able to enjoy the beautiful property and its convenient access to the lake. We are sorry to hear that the aesthetic of the home wasn't an ideal fit for you. Please know, that we do post updated photos and offer a virtual tour feature of our homes so that all guests are able to make informed rental decisions. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope to host you again in the future!

View is great, nice swimming from the dock. Not too much boat traffic. Needs a broom in the house.

Tons of things to offer to every age and interest

Great house! Had the kids and grandkids gather over the 1st weekend in December. There are great views from all sides of this house.

The house has 6 bedrooms, 3 of the bedrooms have 2 sets of bunk-beds. All the upstairs bedrooms have full bathrooms. The kitchen has ample room to cook and prepare meals for a hungry gang.

My favorite part of the house was the fully finished basement. 2 big flatscreen TVs, Wrap-around couch,  Wet-bar, and a pool table. Plenty of seating and area to mingle.

The yard was great to throw the football, play bocce, and horse-shoes. Around back is the water, with a boat house and jetski ramps. Also has a deck area to fish off of. There is a great area near the house that has a concrete patio with a nice size fire-pit. There is also a nice sized screened-in porch.
Phil D. Nov 2019
Only good things to say about the house!!! Our favorite part was the massive front yard we used for so many activities. Thanks for a great weekend!

This is a beautiful modern home with an excellent set-up for multiple families. Multiple rooms with private baths and bunk rooms for kids. Basement pool room/bar is a bonus, as is the garage. Lots of refrigerators for a big crowd. We are boaters and the ramp was wonderful for launch and retrieve -- and a good place to swim for the kids. the boat house is the only "not so great" as it lacks a good covered congregating area. Looking forward to the next time -- this is a great part of the lake.
Linda F. Aug 2019
We love this house, perfect size for all of us. You never feel like your on top of each other!
Geoffry M. Jul 2019
it was nice
Regina K. Jul 2019
The large boathouse was perfect for us because we brought a boat and two jet skis. An extended family of 17 people stayed comfortably. 7 kids age ranges from 4-12. The screened in porch area was a blessing, as it was very hot the first couple days. I would recommend this house to anyone.
Nick R. Jul 2019
House was nice, dock and lake area was perfect. Layout and bedrooms could be better but overall was a nice place and location
Lucy B. Jun 2019
We have stayed at Paradise 3 times over the past 4 years. It is one of our favorites. The huge finished basement is a great place for folks to gather and play pool, watch a movie or play games at night. The dock is large enough to provide seating at the water for the whole family and there is a fridge in the boat house. The private boat ramp is a great feature - no need to drive miles to a public boat launch. We have a boat and several people that ski and tube. We also have two jet skis and this property has two jet ski pads. It suits us to a T.
EMILY R. Jun 2019
This house was perfect for our staff retreat.
Sahand S. Mar 2019
This was the perfect house for a relaxing weekend.
Anna M. Feb 2019
The house was clean and perfect for groups. They had all the amenities that we needed. Our only complain is that there seems to be temperature irregularities between the bedrooms. There is a lot of heat in all the rooms upstairs while rooms in the first floor seems to have little to no heat. We understand that heat rises but there were no heat coming out of the vents on the first floor rooms. Other than that, the house was perfect for our long weekend.
Manager response:
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! Our local staff has ensured that the heat is working properly on the first floor. We hope to host you again soon!
SARA M. Feb 2019
I loved everything about this house, Loved the view, the cleanliness of the house. As soon as you entered you felt welcome, Thank you sooo much for the opportunity to let us enjoy this home. Beatiful!!!

We stayed at Paradise last year also, and love the property ! The lake is great . There is 7 adults and 5 children and the house is set up great. We never feel crowded. We always have rented on the ocean but after last year renting on Lake Anna we are hooked . So much to do!

The house is very nice.Plenty of room, especially the basement. Having the launch ramp was very convenient.
T. Aug 2017
We had a great time. The house was wonderful. Having launch ramp on the property was very convenient. Water was perfect. Could not be much better.
R. Jul 2017
The house was larger and nicer than expected. We had four families and 15 people and had more than enough room. The house was very private with a huge yard and the location on the lake was great. It wasn't as busy as other parts of the lake on the weekends, but still very close to marinas, restaurants and the State park. The boat house and dock were also very nice. The jet ski ramp allowed us the have easy access to our jet skis without the hassle of tying them up or putting them back on the trailer each night. The kids loved all of the floats and water toys that came in the boat house and the sandy area/beach to play in. I would highly recommend this house if you are thinking about vacationing on Lake Anna!

We traveled to Paradise for a couple's weekend. There was more than enough room for everyone and the house was maintained very well. The only downside was there were tons of spiders outside, but that's what you get when you're out in nature. We will definitely come back to Paradise sometime in the future!
