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 Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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.

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.

Nice well appointed house near the beach and shopping.

  • 5 of 5

We spent Spring Break with a large group and everyone had ample space to sleep and lounge when not at the beach. The house was clean and ready for our arrival. We were short a set of sheets for a pullout, but the housekeeping company delivered a new set the next day. We noticed some minor maintenance issues and reported them as well. The owner called me to let us know that they issues were known and parts were on order. The location was great as it was close to the beach , but far enough away as to not have people around us all the time. We were able to walk to restaurants and the Outlet Mall as well.

Beautiful and spacious layout with an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay consisted of my family and 2 other families. This was our first time using a rental by owner and we are overly satisfied with our experience and will for sure be booking again. You cannot beat the location for a kid-friendly environment with amazing beaches and the closeness to shopping. I could go on and on but I wont. I will end with this, thank you for providing us with a place that provided us with the feeling of home without being our home.

Take a deep breath and unwind! The laid back beach towns of Destin & Fort Walton Beach offer you every opportunity to relax. Welcome to Florida's Emerald Coast.... home to some of the best beaches in the world! Florida's Emerald Coast offers 24 miles of pristine white-sand beaches stretching along the Gulf of Mexico. This sand, made up of pure Appalachian quartz, remains remarkably cool even in the heat of summer, and gives the waters here their trademark emerald-green color.

The carefree atmosphere of the Emerald Coast is perfect for peace and serenity. Enjoy sand between your toes as you spend quality time with family and friends at a leisurely pace. Spend a day at the beach and watch the sun set over the water for a tranquil splendor filled with beauty beyond imagination.

Emerald Coast golf courses offer exquisite vistas for golfers of all skill levels. The area's mild climate makes golfing popular throughout the year, so no matter when you visit, you can look forward to teeing it up on the greens of the Emerald Coast! Over 17 fabulous courses are within minutes!

The Emerald Coast is a favorite of those with a love for retail therapy. Here you’ll find chic merchandise from the world’s most popular retailers, designer clothing at affordable outlet prices, and unusual keepsakes in one-of-a-kind shops. Up and down the coast, you’ll enjoy a wide selection, great deals and southern hospitality.

When you’re ready to experience the unique cuisine of the coast, you will feel anything but limited in the abundant dining choices that are located throughout the Emerald Coast.
