Loved the house! It was beautiful & perfect for our family. The beach was not far at all & the wagon was a life saver. We made a lot of fun memories(including my sister getting engaged!!!) and hope to return next year.

Owner response: Congratulations on your engagement! We are so happy you enjoyed our home and made special memories:) We are always happy to have guests return to enjoy another vacation.
We were so excited to see that when we arrived at this home that it was just as beautiful as it seemed in the pictures. It was just simply as wonderful as it was made out to be! The entire house was stocked much better than any other rental home we had ever stayed in before. The walk to the beach and the pool area was very minimal. The wagon was a life saver. With several small children in our party you can imagine the baggage that comes along with them. There were beach chairs, toys, float and all the things you need for a great beach trip. We grilled out burgers on the grill one night...it was great to have a grill on hand! At the beach access there were bathrooms and showers which was really great! We dined at Kenny D's one day for lunch which is just right across for the beach access point. We also recommend Dewey Destin's Seafood Restaurant...we sat on the upper deck and it was just perfect. You can bet that if we return to the Destin area with a large party we will by contacting the Mlinarcik Family to use one of there homes. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!

A Great Time Held By All
A Great Time Held By All
Thank you for an excellent time! This house was supplied with plenty of things normally not found in a rental (baby gate, baby chair, pack-n-play, board games, beach toys, waffle maker, griddle, etc). With the yard, we were able to have good family time playing some volleyball while waiting for the food grilling. Also, very close to the beach and the pool in the complex, all within walking distance. It was a perfect location for a great family vacation!! Thank you again!!

Owner response: As a homeowner I like to hear that all the "extras" that I supply at the home are all being used! When traveling with young children I feel it important to have all the necessities to make your stay convenient and enjoyable. Vacations are for creating memories and happy you have made some lasting memories at our beach home:)
Our first trip to Destin and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. Homeowner was great to work with and very attentive. House is very well cared for and the property is beautiful. Our children loved playing in the yard, a real rare treasure. Walk to beach and pools very convenient. Highly recommend, we hope to be back!

Gorgeous home with a perfect location.
Gorgeous home with a perfect location.
We have stayed in many houses in Destin over the years and this was by far our favorite. The home is updated and modern and perfectly clean. It sits on a gorgeous lot in a cu-de-sac that the kids enjoyed immensely. It is located an easy walking distance from the beach, pool and tennis courts. We were able to walk to Pompano Joe's a few times for dinner as well. The owners are extremely amiable and helpful. The thoughtfulness of a high chair, beach toys, and wagon, made the trip even better. I would highly recommend!

We try to add conveniences like the wagon, beach toys, games, books and high chair for guests to make their stay stress free. Glad you took advantage of some these items and enjoyed your trip. Happy to hear we were your favorite house!

Owner response: As homeowners we are always happy to have guests celebrate their wedding at our beach home. It was great to have you enjoy your special day and make lifetime memories. Looking forward to your return to Paradise!
The property was neat and clean. The owner checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. Lots of beach toys for the kids. Nice restaurants within walking distance. Enjoyed the Harbor Walk and made a trip to Seaside, a quaint little town. Saw lots of dolphins on the dolphin cruise. Everyone enjoyed racing the cars at The Track. Two heated pools kept the kids happy when we were not on the beautiful white sand beach. Our family enjoyed the week.

Owner response: Happy you filled your week with so many fun activities! Having the convenience of two pools in our gated community and great restaurants walking distance to our home is one of the reasons we purchased Simply Paradise. We look forward to your family returning and making more fun memories!
a very nice property with some quiet and privacy away from the bustle

This is an excellent, well-maintained and situated property. It was spacious and comfortable, perfect for a family, and much more relaxing than the look of the condominiums on the main thoroughfare through town. It's a short walk to the beach, and easy bicycling or driving to most points of interest. The owners are extremely competent and easy to work with. A very nice option.

Simply Paradise in November, 2012
My wife & I had the opportunity to be the first guests to stay at the newly upgraded/remodeled Simply Paradise. We had been searching for a special place to celebrate our mid-November birthdays & this certainly turned out to be the spot !! We can understand why Linda & John love Destin !! We quickly were able to settle in & feel most comfortable in this very special three bedroom home. Linda was most helpful with suggestions regarding restaurants; sightseeing; & shopping. We were very pleased to be able to actually walk to some nearby restaurants (Kenny D's; & Captain Dave's Seafood). Other favorite restaurants for us were the Marina Cafe & (Vin'Tij) Wine Boutique Market Bar Bistro. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking to rent a top quality home.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We were both born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Married for 27 years and have two children, our daughter is 23 and son is 19. We love the change of seasons up north but always vacation at the beach. Destin is the perfect beach destination and once we found it we had to spend more time in this paradise. We spend as much time as we can at our beach home in Destin and are happy to share it with others when we are not there.
Why the Owner Chose Emerald Shores:
We fell in love with Destin Florida when we vacationed here in 2005. We purchased this home in July of 2012. Simply Paradise is located only 100 yards from the beautiful sugary white sand and emerald water. The location of this home is perfect. Emerald Shores has the beach pavilion that makes this neighborhood one of a kind, The conveniences of two pool, pavilion, tennis court and basketball goal makes it the best gated community for our family.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location is the key to this home, it is the second closest home to the beach. Also this home has a huge side grass yard which makes it so unique. The two side porches overlook the expansive yard which is great for grilling and relaxing. These features made it the perfect home for us to purchase.
