Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather was great. We took long beach walks, shopped in Apalachacola, ate lunch at the Grill. Cooked on the grill, lazed in the sun. We saw & discovered peach & quiet, great seafood, loads of shells & driftwood, and nice folks. We watched the sunset from the beach every day. Took beach photos at sunrise, watched crashing pelican's and many many dolphin right by the shore. We had a great time doing almost nothing, which was our goal. Great locals, awesome seafood, quiet. We can't wait to do it again.

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

The pelicans nest was perfect for our family of four. The property is well stocked and has plenty of room. The beach is a short walk 5 min max. The bay is just across the road. This area has some of the best food I have ever had on vacation. The bay is beautiful and teaming with wildlife. Went to St. Josephs state park twice during our stay and must say I can see why It has been rated one of the best beaches in America. Erin is responsive and wonderful to work with. Like the title says, Best Vacation ever!!!

The husband love it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great time. Few hiccups when we arrived but all worked out. Erin was very responsive to all my questions and worked with us. The home was beautiful and not too far of a walk to get to the beach. Also, it’s right across the street from new scallop republic. The kitchen in the home is amazing and my kids loved that they each had a king size bed. Being able to park under the home made for easy load and unload of our vehicle, especially when it rained. Cape San Blas has grown some since our last visit but still our favorite places for vacation.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very nice but we never did get the television in the living room to work. Not really a problem for me but my husband was disappointed. We loved the whole area and would like to return for a longer stay next winter.

Everything is as described. We we're there for a 4 day Thanksgiving jaunt.

  • 5 of 5

If my only demerit is for not enough pots and pans, you must consider the source. I was born and raised in South Louisiana, if we don't use every dish in the kitchen to make a ham sandwich, it ain't worth eating. Satire aside, I found this place to be a bang for the buck, and the owner responds quickly. Quiet friendly neighborhood.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Pelican's Nest is the so perfect for relaxation and fun. The house is bright and cheerful and you can get to know the very nice owners just by walking through the door. My husband and I did not want to leave. Great porch with table and chairs for eating. All kinds of beach equipment in the under the house cabinet. Barbecue pit for outdoor cooking. Friendly neighbors all waving as they went by the house. Maintenance man came by to just make sure we had no problems and he was as nice as they come. Not an unpleasant issue in the entire 8 days we were there. Really convenient to Apalachicola and St. Joe for eating if that's your thing and if not just driving to see the beautiful ocean and bay is so peaceful.

We recommend Pelican's Nest very highly.
