We were both born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Married for 27 years and have two children, our daughter is 23 and son is 20. 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

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.

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.

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.

AWESOME HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!!

GORGEOUS HOME WITH A PERFECT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
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!

Owner's Response: We are happy you were able to enjoy the nice walk along the beach to eat dinner, one of our favorite things to do while vacationing too.

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!
