About Tim Nystrom

Our three families from the Dallas/Fort Worth TX area purchased this beautiful home to have a fabulous place to vacation with our families to build lasting memories! We would love for u to visit our home and make your own family memories too

Tim Nystrom purchased this house in 2013

Why Tim Nystrom chose Miramar Beach

Simple Pleasures was chosen for the quaintness of the neighborhood along with it's commanding beach and ocean views and it's close proximity (30 yard walk) to the white sandy beaches of the Emerald Coast! It's location at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac makes it perfect for young kids to get out and play as they wind down the day, while us parents relax under the gazebo in the center of the cul-de-sac!

What makes this house unique

Simple Pleasures is a few steps to the beach, a short walk to restaurants, shops and the grocery store, yet in a quiet newer neighborhood. The beach is front of the house is quieter since we are not surrounded by high rise condo complexes.

Great location! Close to the beach as you can get for a great price!

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful for our family of 12 (6 adults, 3 teenagers, and 3 children). The rooms were very spacious. We had the 3 kids stay on the 3rd floor on the sleeper sofa...and they loved having their own "floor"! The description of the house was on point. The beach literally was 30 yards away. The neighborhood was cute as can be. The owner was very responsive. I would really give the house 4.5 stars! And the only reason why I wouldn't give it a 5 is because we had some trouble with the direct tv (which we had never used) and it would be nice if the home had beach stuff for families to use instead of purchasing our own. However, the Surf store was convenient to purchase the things we needed. Things to do in Destin: Deep Sea Fishing, Dolphin Sea Blaster Cruise, Harborwalk for the fireworks, and if you can go to Crab Island is a must! But who needs all of that when you have the beach just steps away!

Very nice beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

"Simple Pleasures" was just that....a pleasure! The beach house was very neat and clean. The house was spacious and well appointed. We had 6 adults, 2 teens and 2 babies and we had plenty of room. It is the closest house in Gulfside Cottages to the beach. Our family really enjoyed "Simple Pleasures"!

Perfect home for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! It was the perfect distance to the beach (without spending double to be right on the beach!). We fit 4 families with kiddos comfortably! The house was well maintained, had everything we needed and the owners were super responsive to all of our needs. Will definitely stay at this house again when we go back!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at various houses in Destin over the past five years and have even stayed in some within Gulfside Cottages. This house has a great location for walking to the beach and/or the pool. It is at the back of the neighborhood, so it was quiet as well. The walking path to the beach was very private and made it easy to make multiple trips back and forth to the beach. The pictures are somewhat deceiving if you are hoping for an actual ocean view. Since the pictures were taken, a new three story house is being built between this house and the ocean/beach. There is only one small area where you can glimpse a peek of the beach from the third story loft. Overall the property was in decent condition. Air conditioning worked great (two units - one for downstairs and one for upstairs). The couches and chairs in the family room were not very clean (tons of "yuckiness" in the couch cushions). Not sure most people would notice that, but we were traveling with a toddler and a preschooler so of course they found every piece of unwanted trash! One of the biggest disappointments for us was that a high chair was listed as an amenity, but there was not a high chair in the house. We called the housekeeping company to see if we could get one, but were told the owner was out of the country and there was nothing they could do. We ate almost all meals at the house and without having a place to safely put the toddler, it was made more difficult. Most of the other houses we have stayed in have included access to the outdoor shed for things that many vacationers tend to leave anyway...beach cart, chairs, beach toys, umbrellas, etc. This house did not and is another reason I would not give it five stars. Overall a decent property that is showing its age and rented use with a GREAT location.

Awesome family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We love this beach house! This is the second year we have stayed in it.

It is clean, well stocked and the a/c was great to come in to from the heat.

It is a short walk to the beach and pool. The outlets are very close along with many restaurants.

We frequent Win Dixie, CVS Panera, Wales Tail and Surf Hut and they are only about 5 minutes away.
