Owner Info

Linda Mlinarcik

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I were both born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Married for 35 years and have two children who are both married and have recently welcomed a new grandchild into our growing family! We are truly blessed. We plan on making many more family memories of our own at our homes Secret Paradise and Simply Paradise!
We love the change of seasons up north but always vacationed at the beach. Destin is the perfect beach destination and once we found it we had to spend more time in this place we call paradise! We spend as much time as we can at our beach homes in Destin and are happy to share it with others when we are not there.
​Come see why we call Destin our favorite place on earth!

Linda purchased this House in 2012

Why this property? This home is located on the street closest to the beach! Also this home has a "one of a kind" huge backyard! It has the best lot in the entire neighborhood so it was an easy decision to purchase the minute it went on the market!

Guestbook comments from the owner:

We had a great time staying so close to the beach. We will definitely be returning to emerald shores the next time we travel to Florida.


Apr 2019

Our family had a great time!!


Jul 2018

This is a perfect house for 3 couples. Our group loved the house and the small yard. The owner had everything you need to enjoy time to eat in or grill if that's would you like. Being able to go buy fresh local seafood and bring it back to the house was simple and fun. Also, the owner has a bunch of games that was great enjoyment in the evening with a few cocktails.


Mar 2018

super clean & convenient. i would suggest hair dryers.


Mar 2017

We have rented numerous homes in Emerald Shores over the years, and this is our favorite. It's very lovely in every way and extremely convenient to the beach. Great backyard! As is nearly always the case in a rental situation, it would be great to have a dining room table that accommodates more; however, we made it work. Linda is a gem, and I would highly recommend this vacation rental.

Amazing house

Perfect house for our family of 5 and perfect location. There were beach toys for the kids and lots of fun board games and puzzles. Pool and beach were both just a few minute walk away and there are lots of shopping and restaurants in the area. We will definitely be back!

Holiday at the beach

We love this home!! The layout is inviting and has been kept up well. There are 3 bedrooms which is perfect for our family. One bedroom has 2 full beds. It is a nice corner lot with an extra large yard. There is a cut through which makes the stroll to the beach and restaurants nearby shorter. The location is great too! It's residential without being too busy. There are no high-rises nearby, so the beach is quiet and has beautiful views. It is just a quick drive to Destin for shopping. We will definitely be back MANY times!!!
