About Linda

Cindy and Jim moved to Destin in the late 90's and fell in love with the beaches, activities and family friendly environment. When we go on vacation we like to stay in places that are updated and comfortable. Consequently we put a lot of loving care into the renovation of Sea Fan Cottage. We hope you will enjoy relaxing there as much as we enjoyed getting it ready for you!

Linda purchased this house in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a fantastic vacation here in Miramar Beach and truly enjoyed "Sea Fan ," and all it's amenities, and lovely decor. The cottage was so easy and just a delight! And being steps to the beach made it even more perfect! We will be back next year--we're already missing it.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our second trip to Destin and Emerald Shores. We rented a different house in 2014; this was our first time at Sea Fan Cottage. The house was perfect! It's very clean, well-maintained, very quiet, and the owner's provided everything you could possibly want or need. The beds had beautiful linens and were very comfortable. I was especially impressed with the pantry items: sugar, flour, spices, paper products, laundry soap, etc. The well-stocked kitchen had everything to prepare meals. Located just a five minute walk to the beach, the house provided everything you need for beach comfort and fun.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Emerald Shores but our first renting this property. We stayed the last week of October for our kids' fall break. I chose this house for the space since my mother was supposed to be making the trip with us but canceled at the last minute. That being said, Sea Fan Cottage was more than big enough for our family of 4! Our girls just loved the cute little bunk room, however they ended up either sleeping with us or in the Queen room. The house was beautifully decorated, very clean, and I especially loved the updated kitchen and master bedroom. Having all the beach toys, inflatables and boogie boards to the wagon to take it all down to the beach was such a nice convenience. We had everything we needed! I worried about the weather since I've never been to FL this late in the year but it was still great beach weather! Low to mid 80s and the water was still warm! It was less than a 5 minute walk to the beach as well. We loved this property and the owners were always available to answer questions. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Happy to hear our home had everything you needed for you to enjoy your week! Good customer service is so very important to us and we are glad all your questions answered before and during your stay. October is a perfect time of year to enjoy everything Destin has to offer. We look forward to your return to Sea Fan Cottage:)

Couldn't have been any better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a completely restful, stupendously wonderful time at Sea Fan Cottage! The house itself was gorgeous and wonderfully appointed, the location was a short five minute walk to the beach, and the neighborhood was nice and quiet (most of the time). While my husband would have enjoyed being actually ON the beach, I thought the short distance was fabulous because we could let our children play in the cul-de-sac, enjoy the pool when the waves were too high, and did not have the same safety concerns that we would have had if we had been right on the water. Staying at Sea Fan in Emerald Shores was the best of both worlds and we highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Hearing your stay at Sea Fan Cottage was restful and enjoyable is what we strive for as homeowners! We make sure our home has all the comforts and upgrades that make our guests have a memorable and perfect vacation. We also provide a wagon (also a couple beach chairs and beach toys) to make the short easy walk to the beach pleasant. We look forward to your return for another relaxing vacation:)

Wonderful home, great location, very quiet!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and nicely maintained. There are many upgrades and it was a very comfortable home. We loved how close of a walk it was to the beach. There is also a private pavillion for this subdivision with it's own bathrooms and bar to purchase soft drinks or adult beverages. The beach is beautiful! The neighborhood where we stayed was incredibly quiet at night and very peaceful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!

Owner's Response: The Emerald Shores beach pavilion for our own private beach access is a "one of a kind" in the Destin area! We are the only neighborhood that has it's own private pavilion for our beach access with bathrooms, snack bar, rinse showers and picnic tables. We are happy you found this added bonus a great amenity as well as our homes close proximity to the beach. We hope Sea Fan Cottage is first on your list for your next vacation to Destin as we enjoy having repeat guests!

Great house, pool and walking distance to beach!

  • 5 of 5

Sea fan cottage was just perfect. We spent two weeks last May. House is immaculate, big enough to share with another couple. Pool was wonderful, always clean and never crowded. Grounds are absolutely gorgeous. Attention to detail is evident. Cottage has everything you need to prepare meals, we loved grilling fish outside in the charcoal grill. You won't be disappointed if you rent this cottage. Close to restaurants, private beach access is great!

Family Vacation at Emerald Shores Destin Florida

  • 5 of 5

We just love to go to the beach and we also like to stay at Emerald Shores gated community. This time we stayed at Sea Fan on Jade Cove and found this home to be very comfortable for our family. The home has a wonderful layout with a hidden bunk room that was so accomodating for my two young Grandsons. We loved the decor and the location also.

Emerald Shores is a gated neighborhood that meets the true definition of a quaint beach community. You are only a short walk to the beach and there is even a shuttle that operates seasonally. The community has a private beach cabana with lounge chairs, picnic tables, and restrooms located right on the beach! In addition, the private pavilion also has a newly opened seasonal snack bar where you can order your favorite tropical drinks and snacks right on the beach! You also will enjoy the 2 pools (one heated), tennis court, shuffle board and a basketball goal! In addition, there are two restaurants, including Captain Dave’s Seafood, in easy walking distance located at the beach right outside the neighborhood!

The Destin area is known as the Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village! Deep sea fishing is very popular and in fact, Destin boasts the largest charter fishing fleet in the State of Florida! The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' The Destin area is abundant with Restaurants, bars, shopping areas, Golf, and water sports. For kids, Big Kahuna waterpark is not to be missed. Also popular with the kids and highly recommended is taking a Dolphin cruise.
