Just wanted to tell you how wonderful your house is and it worked perfect for the 6 of us. The boys loved the backyard. The 4 year old loved all the beach toys. The kitchen had everything we needed. Loved the distance from the house to the beach. We saw and did a lot in the week. We would recommend the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise. So much fun. Thank you for all your help with my questions. We are all having beach with drawl today. Can't wait till we can come again and stay at your home.
Just GREAT !!
This year was the second year in a row we stayed here. Wish we could stay forever!!!! It is so easy to work through the rental application but more importantly the house is great. Bring your food and everything is there. House is in a condition where you immediately feel comfortable. Linda defines "customer service". If there is a concern or problem she addresses it. The destin beach is a short walk and they are so beautiful. The kids love the yard and all the beach supplies. We hope we can get back.

One of the most enjoyable family vacations ever!

We stayed at Simply Paradise in Destin FL with our whole family of 10 (7 adults, 26-66 years old, and 3 grand children, 4-9 years old). It was clearly one of the most enjoyable family vacations ever (and we have taken quite a few). The house was perfect, cool, spacious, every amenity imaginable, most modern appliances, technology, absolutely perfect. Incredible LARGE back yard where the kids played soccer every night and we had great cook outs on the available grills. Plus quick and easy access to the ocean, right in the middle of all restaurants and entertainment. Perfect parking for 3 cars. Great front porch, 3 individual bedrooms with private bathrooms, TV's in every room.  We could not have asked for a better, more affordable, perfect family vacation rental home. We plan to come back. It was truly perfect and Linda, who owns it, Could Not have been any nicer or accommodating.

Looking Forward to Rebooking
With a heavy heart, due to an unexpected financial burden we were hit with, we had to contact Linda to cancel our planned vacation for this year. We were so excited to get to stay at Simply Paradise as we had discussed all of the cleaning aspects with Linda and felt confident that this was a great choice coming out of the COVID-19 period. We could not have asked for a more gracious, compassionate handling of this situation. Linda is very thorough and we are already looking at dates in the Fall when we can reschedule our Destin getaway! (Our reservation was for 6/27-7/4, but the system will not let me enter that so I am entering today's date so I can post)
lovely house with plenty of room
We stayed at 17 Topaz Cove in Jan and Feb 2023. Before I tell you more about our stay, I would like you to know what a wonderful experience we had with the owner, Linda. We have never stayed at a rental house with such a responsive owner!! From booking through some requests we had, she was right on it and took quick action to the questions we had!! We were very grateful to have an owner like Linda. 17 Topaz Cove has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 8-10, however, Linda also owns another bigger property here in Emerald Shores in case you need more room! The house has the best stocked kitchen ever! I did not find that I needed anything else to be able to cook and bake. It has a lovely open floor plan on the first floor and is quite accessible to the beach! We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to Destin! Thanks again Linda for providing a great place to call home while we were here!!
Beautiful house
Perfect house and perfect location! Quick walk to pool and quick walk to beach. Lots of restaurants and stores in the area. Beach was so clean. Owner provided beach wagon and toys for the kids. We will definitely be back.
