We are the new proud owners of 'Secret Paradise' located in Emerald Shores, Destin Florida. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in 2010 and purchased our beach home that same year. We have two wonderful children, 24 and 28. Family is very important to us and vacationing together has always been a highlight of every year. We have always loved the beach and wanted to find the perfect place to own a vacation home. The first time we visited Destin was in the summer of 2008 and found it to be a true Secret Paradise. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio we did not know a clear emerald water beach existed in the United States until we found Destin. The bright white sand and clear water is breathtaking! We now own a 'Secret Paradise' and would like to share it with others! We take pride in great customer service and enjoy helping each guest with their perfect vacation so please call us to discuss your travel needs!
Linda purchased this House in 2010
Why Linda chose Miramar Beach
Secret Paradise is located on a cul-de-sac in the family oriented Emerald Shores neighborhood. We like having a gated community and it's convenient location to the beach. Having two pools to enjoy and a private beach pavilion is a 'one of a kind' offered in the Destin area. Also the free tram service to the beach in peak season is a great feature!
What makes this House unique
A short five minute walk to the beach and also strategically placed between the two pools offered. We not only have three porches on the front of the home we also have a private porch on the back of the home. Our long driveway on the side of the home makes parking your vehicles easy and out of the way. We are so relaxed and comfortable in our beach home and hope the same for you and your family!

This house had everything and anything we needed for a great family vacation. From beach items, like chairs and toys, to all of the infant items for our grandchild. Short walk to the beach and even shorter walk to the pool. Private access to the beach was perfect for leaving wagons and/or our bikes. Finally, Linda was easy to work with and really helped to make this a extremely enjoyable stay. Would definitely put this at the top of places to stay.
I am happy to hear our home, Secret Paradise, is at the top of your list of places to stay! We are glad you made use of our items to share with the children and babies traveling; the pack'n play, booster high chair, umbrella stroller, beach toys... Also the wagon that we share with our guests. Looking forward to your next stay!
Fabulous home with all the amenities you may need.
Perfect Open concept floor plan for our 8 adults and 4 children and everyone had someplace to sleep and/or sit. Everyone loved and commented consistently that they loved the short walk to the pool and beach. Private access to the beach and restrooms was really nice. Sand was white and soft. Pool was never over crowded because it was big with lots of chairs and tables, bathrooms. The house had everything we needed with plenty of pots, pans, storage containers and spices for cooking large meals for our big crowd. There was a pack-n-play, baby gate for the stairs, two little strollers and we definitely used the beach wagon to haul the kids and our stuff to the beach. The balcony's and porches were used a lot as well as the kids and adults played in the cul de sac most the time we were there. It was just perfect having a full bath on each floor plus the half bath in the kitchen, living area. The homeowners absolutely thought of everything here and our stay was so easy. The only thing we had to go for was food and I cannot count how many times the men went to Bass Pro Shop. OMG! Linda was attentive, professional, warm and generous with information if we had any questions and the best owner to deal with. I would recommend this home to anyone for sure, it was just simply ideal for us. Can't complain about a single thing.
It warms my heart to hear how much you enjoyed your first time to Destin. We also vacation in our beach homes so we try to be sure if we think of something we need while vacationing we add it to our home for our guests:) Making family memories is what vacationing is all about and happy our home made it comfortable enough for you to do that! We look forward to returning in the future.
Fantastic Getaway for Thanksgiving!
This house was wonderful - literally became our home away from home for the entire week of Thanksgiving. We had great weather, but we thoroughly enjoyed the inside time also! With 5 bedrooms there was plenty of space for our family of 11 to "spread out" - giving the teenagers a place to hang out. In addition, we were really amazed at the large size of the rooms that even allowed for extra seating - not just a bed from wall to wall! Rooms were very spacious. The kitchen has been recently renovated and is just as gorgeous as the entire house. We also were surprised to find that they stocked each bathroom with plenty of toilet paper, hand soap, and the kitchen with paper towels, paper plates, hand soap, dish soap and dishwasher soap. We came prepared and decided to leave some behind for even the next family!!! The house was a short walk to the beach - we really enjoyed the house and plan to use it again for another family stay very soon! Thanks for making our holiday memories complete!
So happy to hear you felt comfortable in our home and made it your own for your Thanksgiving week! Our bedrooms are large and that is one of the reasons we purchased this home. Glad to hear you thought we stock our home with extra conveniences as I work hard to be sure our guests have everything they need to enjoy their vacation. We look forward to your return and maybe make it an annual Thanksgiving tradition!
This was the perfect house for our family vacation. We had a group of 7 adults and 4 children, and everyone had plenty of space. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. Linda was amazing to work with. There were a few very minor issues and she responded right away. The neighborhood is so pretty, and it's just a short walk to the beach. The wagon that she provides was a life saver for hauling all of our beach chairs and toys. The kids really loved the pools too. We will definitely be back!
So happy your first stay at Secret Paradise was so enjoyable! When guests have questions or needs to make their stay more comfortable I address it immediately as my goal is for our guests to have the best experience possible! We are looking forward to your next visit and keep in mind our 2018 calendar is already open for reservations:) If your needs change for a smaller group for your next visit keep in mind we own Simply Paradise which is also located in the beautiful gated community of Emerald Shores as well:) Thank you for the unsolicited review!!
Great home to rent.
Great home. We had a group of 7 adults and 3 children and the house fit everyone nicely. House is beautiful inside and it is just a short walk to the beach. The community's two pools are just a stone's throw away. Linda is very easy to work with. She called within minutes of us expressing interest in her house and answered all of our questions.
So happy you and your family enjoyed your stay at Secret Paradise. The convenience of the two neighborhood pools and the beach to our home is one of the main reasons we purchased this beach home:) Looking forward to your return next time you travel to Destin!
Our stay at Secret Paradise could not have been better! It is a beautiful home, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our group consisted of eight adults and four grandkids. The house is very spacious and we never felt like we were in each other's way. The location of the house was great as well. It's a short and pleasant walk to the beach and an even shorter walk to the pools. We did utilize the golf cart shuttle that is available to take you to the beach. That was especially nice when taking all of the beach equipment! And, boy, is this place stocked with beach equipment! Toys, umbrellas, chairs... you name it. We brought our own but quickly discovered there was no need to. Linda, the owner is great to work with. She answered all of my questions very quickly and I appreciated that. I have no hesitations in recommending Secret Paradise. If you are looking for a comfortable and well equipped home in a beautiful and relaxing location you have found your place with Secret Paradise. Thanks Linda for a wonderful stay!
So glad you had a wonderful stay! We feel blessed to share our home with families like yours to make lifelong memories. Happy you found our closet with the beach items that we have to share with our guests:) We look forward to your return and hope you make our home Secret Paradise an annual destination!
