Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Okaloosa Island - Pelican L-08--54238

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Convenient and Comfortable Lanai Condominium in the Pelican Building at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort-Bayside.

There are only a select few of these ground level floor plans with split level balconies allowing for a private gas barbeque grill and easy access to the lazy river.

With free high speed internet access, you’re only a few clicks away from enjoying all the Gulf Coast has to offer.

From the beautiful white sand beaches to fantastic restaurants, great night life, and all the activities in between, this condo is in a premium location for all your family fun. Pelican L08 at DestinWest-Bayside is located across from the pier and Gulfarium, next to Emerald Coast Convention Center. It is five miles West of Destin and fifteen minutes away from the Northwest Florida Regional Airport (formerly known as Okaloosa Regional Airport).

One of the most unique amenities about this property has to be the lazy river. The lazy river is 700 feet long, 4 feet deep, 10 feet wide, with a man-made current. Inner tubes are provided for you to float through this palm tree adventure. It’s like having a water park in your back yard. The lazy river also has a zero entry point, meaning it’s very easy to wade into, even with toddlers.

The many other amenities of DestinWest Bayside include a pool with a waterfall, two hot tubs (one for adults, the other for families), and six charcoal grills with picnic tables. if you prefer that over the gas grill provided on the patio.

A bridge provides safe walking access over highway 98 to the beautiful sugar white sand beach and the amenities associated with the Destin West Gulf property. These amenities include a state-of-the-art work out facility looking over the beach, the largest swimming pool on the island, a smaller partially covered pool that is heated in the cooler months, kiddy splash playground, a kiddy pool, beach access, and hot tub, are all included in your stay.

Pelican L08 is fully loaded for your enjoyment. The master bedroom has a deluxe king-size bed, television with a DVD player. The condo also has a bunk room and a second bath. The couch in the living room pulls out for addition guests to sleep, and a collapsible baby Pack-n-Play is available. The living room has a television with DVD player and a Sony Blue-Ray for listening to your favorite music.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size fridge with ice maker and filtered water, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, oven, dishes, glass ware, pots and pans, silver ware, etc. This condo unit also has a washer and dryer in the unit.

Whether you’re relaxing with one of the many books we have available, watching DVD's we furnish or just simply floating around the Lazy River, you will not want to leave this little slice of paradise.

From our new marina you can fish on the translucent bay or watch the sailboats, boats, and jet-ski's motor by. Dolphins swim in the bay and you can see them throughout the year.

**All reservations require either a $35 property damage protection fee which covers up to $1500 in damages or a $500 refundable security deposit. Reservations made online will be billed the $35 automatically unless we hear otherwise from the guest.

About Julie Rawson

My husband is a Gastroenterologist and I have spent the last 30 years managing his and his partner's office and surgery center. We are blessed with three wonderful children and three better than wonderful grandchildren. Our children and grandchildren help in the management of our condo rental business.

Why Julie Rawson chose Fort Walton Beach

My husband, children and I bought this condo December 2014. We love DestinWest and are so lucky to own this particular condo. It has been a great experience getting to talk to and meet the wonderful guest that we have had stay in our other condos and we look forward to the same with this one.

What makes this condo unique

Pelican L08 is uniquely and conveniently located right next to the entry to the lazy river. It has steps that lead out right to the lazy river and the other door opens right next the bridge to the lazy river. As a lanai or ground floor condo it is allowed to have it's own bar-b-que grill. We feel this condo will help to make our guest experience at DestinWest a favorable one.

Reviewer Comments:

I cannot begin to explain how amazing our vacation home was last week. The owners think of everything, including sharp knives in the kitchen for someone like me, who loves to cook. The garage they provide with the "goodies" for the beach such as chairs, umbrella, toys etc is a huge convenience. This is my second time in this resort, but first time in their unit. I will never use anyone else. The e-mails are so detailed, they even have an app with all the information and codes that you need to enter in the Marina, The Ramada next door with a Grotto Pool, garage with the toys, your front door, gym etc. This place allows you not to leave with your car. The activity options for the children are multiple. The restaurants, boardwalk and convenient store are all walking distance (like attached to the building you will find a convenient store and the other side is Fudpuckers, where you can have food, bar and the kids can play in the Arcade).Great job to the owners, you have this down to perfection. We will see you again soon!

Our family had a great vacation at the Destin West! The kids loved, loved, loved the lazy river and zero entry pool. The condo was clean for the most part just a little dusty. The location is very convenient with restaurants and entertainment close by. Will definitely stay again!

Reviewer Comments:

We were in Destin for our daughter's national dance competition, held at the Emerald Coasr Convention Center. This is our second time staying at Destin West and just a couple of units over from our last unit. We knew staying on the "L" level was the best with easy access to the lazy river and pool.

Good location, condo dirty

  • 3 of 5

This condo is bayside and very convenient to the lazy river and pool. The elevators are nearby as well which is nice. The only thing we found lacking was 1- not much storage, all the kitchen cabinets are full and one had such a terrible mold/mildew that we didn't use it or anything in it. Also, in the kids bunk room there was not a place to hang clothes or a space to set the suitcase out. 2- the bathrooms were gross. The master shower had mold and rust all over the shower head and shower caddy. The rugs in both bathrooms need a good wash, the master shower liner is discolored and moldy at the bottom. We have stayed at this resort 2 other times and it's a great family vacation, but this condo could use a little extra TLC.

The garage full of beach gear is amazing and a wonderful amenity.
