“Truly Paradise”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2016

We just returned from Linda's Simply Paradise home in Miramar Beach, Destin, Florida. What a fabulous home! It was everything we could have asked for. The home has been well maintained, in an excellent location, with a nice yard for children and seriously less than five minutes to the beach. In addition, Linda was great to work with. She responded immediately to my emails and sent me information regarding things to do in and around Destin. She even called after I had arrived to make sure everything was okay and to see if I had any questions or concerns. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a house that size and I look forward to going back to Simply Paradise.

Owner's reply: Good customer service is very important to me as I want my guests to feel comfortable calling me with any questions they have before & during their stay. I am happy you found our home "fabulous"! Location, Location, Location is what Simply Paradise is all about! If it wasn't for the trees we could see the beach from the second floor porch! If your group is larger next time ask us about our 5 bedroom home in Emerald Shores called Secret Paradise. We look forward to your return:)

“Can't wait to return!!!”

As first time renters...my husband and I couldn't have had a better experience. We absolutely loved this home...so compfy, cozy and we felt so at home. The house is well stocked...the owners have thought of everything. While here...we had family visit and there was plenty of room to accomodate them. They too felt so at home. This area offers so much to do from the beautiful beaches to museums, golfing, dinning and of course shopping. In fact...our time here was so enjoyable...we booked for 2017!

Owner's reply: We feel blessed to be able to share our home with guests! We are happy to hear your first time renting Simply Paradise was so enjoyable and look forward to your return in 2017! We always enjoy having repeat guests. Good customer service is so very important to us and happy our beach home had everything you needed to feel comfy and cozy:)

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Our guest Craig who vacationed July 25, 2015 said:

We could not be more pleased as our vacation to the Destin area was wonderful. Simply Paradise was exceptional in every way. The home was immaculate, clean and well taken care of. Linda was awesome to work with and everything mentioned in the description of the property was right on. We had 10 people and the accommodations were perfect. The beach is stunning and my family has decided that Destin and Simply Paradise to be the perfect destination when we travel to Florida. You can be assured we will be back in the near future.

Our guest Amy who stayed July 11, 2015 wrote a great review for Simply Paradise:

The home is extremely clean & well maintained. Every possible amenity is there. I have been visiting Destin for several years now & this is by far the best property I have stayed in. It is one of the closest to the beach and the walk to & from is really not bad; we didn't even utilize the tram provided by the neighborhood. We were very comfortable and Linda checked in after our arrival to make sure we had everything we needed. There are several restaurants within walking distance. We had a great time! Thanks Linda!!

Our guests the Miller and Counts families stayed June 11, 2015 and shared this with us:

We had a great time at Simply Paradise!!! It was nice and clean and very welcoming! The access to the beach was nice and convienant for the whole family. We enjoyed using all the beach toys, wagon, and chairs with our kids! Linda went above and beyond to leave a little extra for us. We didn't have to worry about cleaning supplies for our laundry or anything in the kitchen. The things that we wished we would have brought were always found organized in the kitchen cabinets. The backyard was so nice for our kids (4-8 years old). Our kids also enjoyed the community pool, which was only a short walk away. I would highly recommend this house to any family (with or w/of kids)!!!! The owners were always a phone call away to answer any of our questions!!!

Our guest Natalie who stayed May 23, 2015 is returning May 2016 for a repeat visit wrote:

We had the best week at Simply Paradise. I have 3 young kids and the house and community were perfect for our family. Short, easy walk to the beach and pool. Amazing, private back yard for the kids to play in while we sat on the patio or the balcony above. They had the best time racing down the little hill. Pack n play and high chair were provided which made traveling even simpler. There were even board games and books to read. Linda was more than accommodating and so friendly. We would most definitely stay here again!

Our guest Erin booked our other property Secret Paradise in Emerald Shores for 2016 and stayed at Simply Paradise in May 2015 wrote this kind review:

We had the best family vacation at this home. Every amenity we could possbile need was here including beach toys and boogie boards for our boys! I think we were even the first to use the gas grill, it looked brand new. This home is extremly well maintained and has the best location in the area. Our family loved the pool, yard and beach location. We were so pleased with the owners and how they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was everything we expected. We were so happy we are looking at returning but at the owners other property at Emrald Shores with another family. Lastly, all I can say is location, location...it is minutes to the beach, shopping and dinning. Thank you so much for providing our family the best vacation!
