We stayed at Paradise park a few weeks ago for two nights. We liked it. Everything looks like it is kept up, neighbors were friendly, nice golf course and swim pool. I was told that they have a very nice shop to work on things with all the tools you need. They are very dog friendly and have an off leash area.
Yes it is out in the country so you need to plan your grocery shopping accordingly. The club house is very busy with dinners, cards,movies, etc. In fact, on Sunday nights they have an ice cream social and then a movie afterwards. We saw The Help which I had been wanting to see.
I don't think the property values have declined very much, but they do have a few more places for sale than normal.
PM me and I will give you my friend's email, he has been living there in the winter for many years.
