This house was perfect for our family of 45. We had a wonderful week in your home. The pool and Hot tub are absolutely amaing. Thanks so much for the cheesecakes, they were delicious!

Stephanie and Kim,
Thank you for greeting us upon our arrival, it was so personal. Your house became our family's home for the week. It had everything we needed. This was our family's first time vacationing together and we couldn't have chosen a more wonderful home! We all just loved your choice of decor. It was a special vacation for our family. We came together to honor our brother, cousin, nephew, uncle and son for his successful chemotherapy journey. Thanks goes to our heavenly father of Jehovah for supporting him and his dear wife. Hopefully we, in the very near future, will be able to book your "Home" again. Thanks for the two excellent choices of cheesecakes!

It was a pleasure. The house is beautiful and hope to return next year.
Dear Lane Family,
Thank you so much for opening your lovely home. This is my first time visiting, but it is everything I was hoping for in a well-rounded vacation. A house isn't a home without friends and family. I was fortunate to get both. I'm from California, but I hope it's not my last trip to the East Coast. Thanks again. With gratitude,
Bill, Kim and Stephanie!
Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home! We had an awesome time! Your home is very beautiful. Everyone enjoyed all of the fine things you had to offer. Looking forward to coming back again!
Dear Lane Family,
Our family had such a wonderful time at your home. It was perfect. We enjoyed every bit of it. At both homes. We truly appreciate you opening up your home to us. I hope we can do it again soon. With warm wishes Thank you,
Steph & Kim,
This week was a wonderful experience! We truly appreciate the hospitality and attentiveness to our guests. The kids may have had the best week over just playing hide and seek, as the mini hotel lent itself to so many creative hiding spots. We can't wait to come back and see you again! Regards,
Bill, Kim and Stephanie,
How do you adequately thank someone for providing a beautiful lifelong memory for your child? We don't have the words but can only hope that you can feel the love and gratitude in our hearts... as parents we strive to give our son good memories to carry throughout his life and having his 14th birthday party at your exquisite home is something he will never forget! I can see him when he's old and in a rocking chair on a porch somewhere and still talking about his birthday in "Paradise"! Your home is something out of a dream, even though our home is only 10 miles away, we felt as if we had traveled to a luxury resort. Your home is spectacular! Many Thanks and much love for your friendship and generosity, we will never forget it!! XXOO,
Angelea, Evan & Evan
Dear Lane Family,
Thank you for the use of your beautiful home. We had a wonderful family reunion. God Bless and have a great holiday! We hope to rent again!

Dear Lane Family,
Thank you so much for your beautiful home that made our family vacation SO SPECIAL! We come from all over - NC, VA, NJ & PA. It was such a blessing to be all under one roof and not feel crowded. We also, want to thank you for the 2 wonderful cheesecakes you gave to us! They were enjoyed very much! May God bless you and your family for allowing us to use your home for our family vacation. Thank you Stephanie for having such a sweet spirit when we called you about things.
September 30- October 7
The pictures of the Grande Ritz Paradise are amazing, but it's even more impressive in person. What a place! You won't want to leave and when you do, you will want to go back. The Lane family is 100% interested in making sure you have an exceptional experience in this phenomenal home they've built. My suggestion to the family, build a second one just like this one, because your demand will outpace your availability (if it hasn't already). We have already booked for 2018 and might go to 2 separate weeks in 2019.

Dear Lane Family, We have truly enjoyed the use of your beautiful home for our daughter's wedding. The view, the accommodations, the pool, hot tubs etc. were amazing and truly enjoyed by all. Great family and friend memories will be cherished forever! Thank goodness the weather cooperated too!
Dear Bill , Kim and Stephanie,
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for opening you home to us! It was the perfect setting for our dream wedding/honeymoon/vacation! Your home is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Everyone that attended the wedding had wonderful things to say. We enjoyed the beautiful setting, pool & beach and of course, the cheesecakes! We loved being able to have most of our families in the house with us to share laughs, memories and love, and without your home, it would not have been possible! We sincerely appreciate all of the accommodations your family and Brindley Beach provided! We hope to be able to stay in your home again soon! Sending love from our families to yours, "The Geesaman's"

Kim, Bill & Stephanie, Thank you so much for the opportunity. Your place is amazing. My daughter and Art as well as the rest of our family and friends probably would never have had this wonderful opportunity if it were not for you. Your recommendations to go to the Dunes, JKs Steak and Duck Donuts were perfect. We will all miss this place and talk about it for years to come. We definitely will be discussing a return trip in the near future. Love Love Love
~Mom Dee, Katie, Art and Family friends
Kim, Stephanie & Bill, I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing my family and I to stay in this absolutely gorgeous house of yours.

~The Scott Family & Friends
Thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful home. We got great use out of all the games. Not to mention bringing me closer to my family. Art and Katie we love and thank you so much for making this happen. Happy marriage I love you guys, so happy that your dream came true!

The Lane Family, Thank you so much for having us for the Price-McMahon wedding! We hosted an incredible event and created some lifelong memories with our families and friends during "our best week ever"! The home was amazing, the area was beautiful, everything was incredible! The Lane family, and Kim in particular, was so accommodating during our stay. Thank you so much!
~Amanda, Ryan, Bill & Family
Kim, Our entire group thoroughly enjoyed our time at your home. The house was fantastic. It exceeded our expectations. It was like staying at a private resort. The attention to detail was extraordinary. The mid week call and your call after our stay show much you care about our experience. The swim up bar was a big hit and got plenty of use. We had such a great time that we have already booked the house again in 2018. Thank you,
Good Evening Kim, Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It was an AMAZING experience all around. Some people have horror stories of all of the things that went wrong at their wedding. We have none of those. Seriously it was about as perfect as we could have asked for. The House was beautiful, the weather cooperated and was great, our guests had a great time, and everything went according to plan. It will be one of our fondest memories. Thanks again. Respectfully,
~Tony & Jamie Baker
April 2017. Bill, Kim and Stephanie, Thank you, thank you! Our retreat week was amazing because of you, your hospitality and thoughtfulness! The care you take to think of "the little details" made this week with our "Trauma masterminds symposium" friends and guests extraordinary! With folks traveling from Canada, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, Raleigh and Indiana, your beautiful home made us all feel like that...home! Can't wait to return
~The McGuire Family
April 2017. Hello Lane Family! We had an amazing time at the Grande Ritz Paradise. The Trauma Masterminds used this week to build our group and brain storm about trauma treatment. We came from Miami Florida, Toronto Canada, Indianapolis, Columbus Ohio and Milwaukee Wisconsin. We loved the house and were able to fine tune our skills! We will definitely be returning! All my best.

April 2017. Bill, Kim & Stephanie, We want to thank you for your graciousness and hospitality to my family during our vacation. Your home is beautiful and all the amenities were such a treat to everyone. From the beautiful kitchen to wonderful outdoor space, to the beautiful pool house, your house brought the kids and family such joy and comfort. We will definitely be inquiring on a return trip to the Grande Ritz Paradise in 2018!! Have a wonderful summer and hope to visit again very, very, very soon.
April 2017. Kim, Bill and Stephanie, Thank you so much for sharing your space with us! From the red abalone tiles to the leftover food containers, everything is so meticulously thought out in your home. We brought our master mind group here and has so much healing this week. I am so grateful for the energy you've created here. The week could not have been more perfect & full of synchronicities. And the Beach! I loved how it was so close, we could see the ocean at every meal. We will all definitely miss this place and look forward to when we cross paths again. May this home be enveloped in love and light forever more. Blessings.
My family and I had a wonderful week in your home. We arrived during the hurricane and the house steward was readily available to assist us. Sand was everywhere but they cleaned it up. The house was beautiful! I can't express how much we enjoyed our stay. There was nothing negative about the house. We lived like royalty for a week. Everyone loved their rooms. We had a double anniversary party at the pool house and it couldn't have been better. I was sad to leave but I'll cherish the memories of having my whole family there to attend my anniversary party in that beautiful house. I definitely recommend anyone that can afford it to rent it. You will not be disappointed.
-The Edmond Family
We have traveled to the Outer Banks for many years now and we have never stayed in a nicer house or a better property than the Grand Ritz Paradise! The pool and fountains were incredible at night, the pool house with fireplace, bar and sauna, kept us cool and comfortable in the day time and hot and partying all night! When the weather wasn't nice outside, we were able to enjoy movies in the large home theater and many rousing games of foosball and pool. The views from the top floor were incredible, watching the waves roll in over and over and watching the stars at night was majestic! The beach was just a short walk away on the private walk. My family and friends enjoyed walking the beaches, collecting shells, flying kites, fishing or swimming from a mostly private secluded stretch of beach!
