Beautiful 4BR, 2BA home with large private pool, near beach
About Ronald Larsen
This property is managed and maintained by the owner. I try to provide everything you need for your beach vacation. I live in the Destin area and am on call if any problems arise. I take pride in this property and work hard to make it an enjoyable, clean, well-maintained vacation location.
Ronald Larsen purchased this House in 2005
Why Ronald Larsen chose Miramar Beach
The Pelican's Elbow is a beautiful, well maintained home in a gated beach community. Destin is a family-oriented beach vacation destination, with one of the nicest white sand beaches in the country. Our area has a small-town feel, with lots of shopping and entertainment.
What makes this House unique
The Pelican's Elbow has one of the largest private pools in the community, in a fenced-in back yard. The pool is 'L-shaped,' 28-1/2 feet long by 9-13 feet wide (not heated). Best of all, the pool is all yours – no sharing with the neighborhood or a condo association. Perhaps you are back from an afternoon at the beach, or it’s after dinner – the pool is a great place for the kids (and adults) to enjoy themselves without the need to organize an expedition. You'll have a nice patio beside the pool with a picnic table and gas grill. And there is a good size fenced back yard with several trees (lemon, banana, pomegranate) and tropical landscaping. After a long day of enjoying yourself, get a great night's sleep on the top quality memory foam mattresses throughout the home.
Smoking allowed outside. Butt buckets are provided

Great, clean home with a perfect pool close to a private (but shared) beach. Everything needed was furnished, except for food. *hint: Bring your own spices.
Beds are very firm and if you’re picky about your pillow, bring your own.
Home is close to everything!
The owner is a jewel. Easy to contact and just a nice guy in general. Looking forward to next year!

Four generation family vacation.
We completely enjoyed our stay. All the extras (wagon, chairs, umbrellas, beach toys) made the week so easy and relaxing. We hope to return.

This was the perfect place for our vacation, fenced yard for the pups, private pool, clean gorgeous house, comfortable beds and living room furniture, great location for beach and other activities. On top of that Ron gives you a very helpful orientation when you arrive and has a book that not only tells you what is around but also gives info and opinions about it if he has been - that’s invaluable for those of us that have never been there. My family is already discussing what week next year we want to book the Pelican’s Elbow!
Thanks for the nice review. I'll be looking forward to hosting you next year at The Pelican's Elbow.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house had everything we needed and a short walk to the beach. Great family vacation
Thanks. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Pelican's Elbow.
