Steve & Shirley Linahan live in Georgetown, Texas (Austin)...when we aren't at the beach or traveling.

Steve Linahan purchased this house in 2009

Because we love the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast and love to share what we love with our family and new friends that we meet through renting our home!

This home faces the beach just a short stroll on a sidewalk. We always love to talk about the beach and the 30A area, give Shirley or I a call...512-923-5400.

Room for All

Our family of 14 thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past Spring Break! There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The little kids loved the bunk room and the porches were well used. The pool was a huge asset for the moms who wanted to be in the sun yet still be close to the little ones who were napping. The kitchen had more than enough of everything you would need and we found the entire house to be very clean and attractive. (especially the paintings!!) One son-in-law really enjoyed being close to the Fresh Catch--a great little seafood place within walking distance! Awesome food!! And of course, Goatfeathers is so close with some wonderful fried oysters!!!! We loved the wagon for pulling the grandkids down to the beach but having the pool was perfect on those cloudy days when they still wanted to swim. The owner Steve was very accomodating and prompt at taking care of anything that popped up. We plan to return this April for another great week!

Perfect Beach/Pool Combination

My two kids and I just returned from a stay at the Beach Buddy with another family of 4, and two couples. It was our first time staying all under one roof and we had plenty of space, both shared and private. I couldn't agree more with all the positives written by the other reviewers - in fact those reviews were the most important part of our decision, and they were absolutely correct in that this house and this location are even better than the website shows. It's very comfortable but I'd say even nicer than most places I've stayed, as everything is modern and nice, versus cheaply furnished for the rental crowd. I was delighted to have a well-stocked kitchen, a comfortable bed with nice sheets and nice towels in the bathroom. We had four kids in the group and they loved staying in the bunk room together. All the adults were very comfortable, too, and we all had our own TV/DVDs. If you have kids who like to swim nonstop, this is perfect. When you only have a beach and no pool, as fun as it is, it can wear you down if you are trying to hold onto the kids in the water and of course it gets very hot. If you only have a pool and the beach is a car drive away, you are constantly wishing you were at the beach, because after all, it's vacation and you're in Florida. In this case, you can go back and forth as your mood and energy level dictates, with ease. The map on this site shows the beach a few blocks away. I toiled over this in my initial research, because we wanted to be ON the beach. But in reality, it's a quick 3 min, 23 sec walk down a straight, paved sidewalk surrounded by pretty cottages. I clocked it on my iPhone for the purpose of this review. Occasionally, we'd forget items from the house, and I had no problem sending my 10 yr old back up there alone to grab the item. It was that close and easy. Everyone staying in the area leaves their flip flops up by the showers and you can sense there is a trust and friendliness in this community where you can do that without worry. Anytime we changed our mind between beach and pool, it was easy to do. We could escape from the heat of the beach and have drinks poolside while our kids splashed away. Because of this, I was happily able to read two whole novels during my stay here. I would guess if you have teenagers, this flexible location is also ideal. Everyone could do what they want in relative proximity. Lastly, the owners are very kind and love sharing this house. You'll see the difference that makes. Enjoy!

BEAUTIFUL home! It has everything we needed plus everything we wanted and didn't expect! We stayed here on a mulit-family vacation and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is so well furnished, there was nothing we found that we needed and didn't have. The pool was a nice bonus but we spent most of our time at the beach which is a VERY short walk away. Also the beach was never crowded. It is in such a private setting but there is a bike rental walking distance as well as restaurants. I just can't say enough about this house. It was a very sad day when we had to leave! This was my first time to the Destin area and now I know I will be back every year!

This is our second time to stay at Beach Buddy and we had a great time! The house has everything you could need and we love it! We hope to make it an every other year event! The grandkids are young so the pool was great to have for them.

The owners are wonderful and very helpful whenever you need anything or have questions.

Soon To Be Your Best Beach Buddy Too !

We have rented many homes in this area over the last few years and found Beach Buddy to be just perfect for our needs! There were 7 of us ( plus an unborn grandson ) - 6 adults and a 5 year old ! The home presented a place for all of us to be together, yet also give us a place to have some quiet time. Everything we needed was in the home and I teased them because we had such a beautifully stocked kitchen, yet we ate out every evening ! With the location close to so many great places to eat - it was very easy! Took our grandson on the Pirate Ship Cruise, Gulfarium and another boat ride. Also spent time at seaside, Pier Park and Baytowne Warf ! Spent time every morning at the beach ( saw 2 sea turtles + dolphin ) and then time in the pool at Beach Buddy! The home is well furnished from beach equipment to comfortable beds to everything to make it home for the week! My grandson loved having a TV in his room tuned right to the Disney channel. Owners were very hospitable and quickly answered any question we had ! You can tell they are committed to making your experience one to remember ! After a week a Beach Buddy, the only problem was that we had to leave !!! My grandson had such a great time he made up a song about Beach Buddy!!!!

45 minutes from new Panama City Airport, (ECP) serviced by Southwest & Delta.

For sheer convenience, Goat Feather's restaurant & seafood shop is right next door and close to stores and coffee shops. South Walton 17 mile hike & bike trail is right next to us with a spur going along one end of the property to the beach access.
