About Linda

We were both born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Married for 29 years and have two children, our daughter is 24 and son is 21. 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.

Linda purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you once again for everything and for the stay at your beautiful home. We were blessed all week with the wedding and the beautiful weather . We thought the house was absolutely gorgeous. A home away from home. We enjoyed our week one of our best vacations ever.

Hope to stay there again sometime.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Simply Paradise. So close to the beach, near the pool. House had everything we needed. Cooked all our meals here and house was supplied well for that. When we needed something Linda took care of it right away. I would highly recommend this house and would definitely stay here again. Thanks for everything!

Everything it promised!!

This house is delightful - pretty much the closest house to the beach in Emerald Shores and wonderfully equipped. I would 100% recommend it - we'll certainly stay here again if we visit Destin with the same number of people (family of 5).

You Simply Can't Go Wrong in Paradise!

You Simply Can't Go Wrong in Paradise!
  • 5 of 5
We were very excited about our first visit to the white sandy beaches of Destin, which were fabulous! But we were equally excited to have chosen such a perfect home to stay in. The owners have thought of everything to make this truly a home away from home, including beach toys! It is apparent from the moment you step in the front door that the entire house has been recently updated and tastefully decorated. Nothing has been overlooked. The beautiful new kitchen was well stocked and even included unbreakable dishes for outdoor dining on the covered patio, which was adjacent to the backyard. (Great for little kids!) We ate every meal there, right next to the towering palm trees! We all enjoyed being able to walk out onto a patio or (very large) balcony from each bedroom and those king-sized beds were very comfy. The bathrooms had plenty of towels, and the walk to the pool and beach was quick and easy, although we caught the 'shuttle' one day just for fun. Linda, the owner, couldn't have been more willing to answer any questions we had and was very helpful in suggesting things to do and places to eat. We also enjoyed our side excursions to the Destin HarborWalk and national seashore. Try the fish tacos for lunch at Pompano Joes and enjoy a great beach view! We were 3 generations and all had an equally enjoyable time at Simply Paradise! This is the place to stay!

Owner's Response: Happy to hear your first stay in Destin was so perfect! When stocking our home for our guests I think about what amenities would I would want when I vacation...and then I add it:) Good customer service is what it is all about for me as a homeowner who manages my own property and happy you felt I delivered. Also pleased your family enjoyed our newly remodeled kitchen and felt comfortable in our home away from home...Simply Paradise!

The Name Is Right - Simply Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay in Emerald Shores and was, without a doubt, the best ever! The property is spacious, the furnishings and appliances are pristine, it's so close to the beach that you almost fall into the ocean from the back porch, and the addition of having a yard and a second floor porch made it perfect. The owners are very responsive and are really concerned about making their guests feel welcome and cared for. I would call this property the best in Emerald Shores. Perfect for a large family or spending time with friends. We'll definitely be back.

Owner's Response: The "Best in Emerald Shores" was the best compliment we could get! What attracted us to this house was the close proximity to the beach as well as the beautiful back yard and feel blessed to be able to share it with our guests. Happy you had a great time at Simply Paradise:) Looking forward to your return!

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5
If Miramar Beach is where you want to be, this is the house you want! Beautifully furnished, up to date and well maintained, Simply Paradise, is true to its claims and photos. The owner, Linda, stayed in touch just enough to make sure everything was AOK....we really appreciated that. Bring your own hair dryer and beach towels, but other than that, everything you could want for the beach, cooking, and relaxing is provided. While there were just two of us, we often thought how much a family would enjoy it with the great backyard.
