Devra Coiner

lovely house with plenty of room    Jan 08, 2022

review star

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!!

Thank you so very much for the nice complement Devra! "never stayed at a rental house with such a responsive owner" I pride myself on great customer service and always make myself available for our guests needs before and during their stay at our home Simply Paradise in Emerald Shores. Also happy you considered our kitchen "the best stocked kitchen ever!" We as homeowners also vacation in this home so I make sure everyone has all the cookwear and bakewear needed to create wonderful meals if you choose to cook while vacationing. We look forward to a return visit!

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.

Looking Forward to Rebooking    Jun 09, 2020

review star

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)

Linda Mlinarcik's reply:

This Covid 19 all hit us unexpectedly and it has been a trying year for all of us. We traveled to Destin ourselves for 3 weeks in May to get our homes sanitized and meet with our husband and wife cleaning staff to assure our properties were ready for the "new normal". We installed UVC lights in all our A/C unity air handlers to purify the air in our homes. Added hand sanitizer when you enter the home and antibacterial wipes to help keep our homes clean before and during our guests stay! We clean all quilts weekly and removed all decor pillows as was a guideline that the CDC recommended. In providing a clean environment for our guests we had a totally booked summer during this pandemic. Guests have enjoyed some much needed vacation and family time with the comfort of knowing our home was clean and ready for check in. WE look forward to your new rebooked stay and feel our guests can enjoy rest and relaxation! WE thank and appreciate ALL our guests!

One of the most enjoyable family vacations ever!    Jun 11, 2017

review star



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.

Wonderful    Jul 15, 2016

review star

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.

Linda Mlinarcik's reply:

We enjoy hearing about how much fun our guests have in the huge grass backyard our home has! It is truly a "one of a kind". Happy you found the kitchen stocked with everything you needed to eat in! I am always accessible to answer any questions as guests inquire about our home and during their vacation stay. My goal is to be sure our guests have a relaxing and wonderful vacation! Look forward to your return:)

Just GREAT !!    Mar 25, 2016

review star

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.
