We had a fun stay!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great for a group of Iowa cardclub friends celebrating a 70th birthday with snow birds. The owners were a pleasant couple who we met arriving and showed us around. The house had everything we needed to cook a party meal and lots of places to gather with plentiful chairs outside and inside! The beds were comfortable. We sure made a great memory at this VRBO!

Fantastic time

We had a very nice time and the property was beautiful. Hot tub was wonderful as well as all of the activities that were available. Beautiful scenery and the ducks were fun to watch.

Has everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in February which is the best time to get away from winter up north. The house was everything that it was advertised to be! Location was great for getting around the area. Grocery store just down the street. We spent a lot of time on the front porch and dock and enjoyed our own dolphin show in the bay several times. We used the kayaks to get around in the bay and out to the island. We really appreciated the fully outfitted kitchen and laundry facilities. In the evenings our family gathered in the living room where there was plenty of sitting room and great TV. We used the hot tub a lot and found the back yard to be very nice. Compared to the place we stayed last year, this home was outfitted much better with supplies in the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry. The quality of the bedding and towels was great. Margaret and Kelly have thought of everything and are very responsive to guest's questions and needs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out how convenient Pelican's Perch is to shopping and how well equipped it is compared to other properties you have visited. It is great to hear that you used the kayaks even in the Winter! That's really adventurous. We hope to have you again next winter when you are looking to escape the snow.

First time visiting Florida and I can say my family and I had a great time. Margaret and Kelly made sure we were well accommodated throughout our entire stay. Look forward to returning again.

P.S my family was very excited to see dolphins from the front porch.

Nice place, maybe bad timing

  • 3 of 5

Super nice owners, nice place. Plumbing was being worked on and the main shower had no hot water. Took a few days of cold showers to figure out other bath was working.

Any other time would have been a great stay, maybe just bad timing for our visit.

Owner's Response: We apologize that the master bath shower's water temperature was not as hot as it should have been for your three night stay. However, the second bath's water temperature was fine. So when we learned of the situation and suggested you could use the second shower instead you would have only had one night without the full hot water supply working. We had a plumbing fixture upgrade scheduled for the day of your arrival and he ran into a problem with a part not fitting. So, he had to leave it unfinished until a new part he ordered would come in. It worked but was not as hot as it should have been. Thankfully, there were only three of you at the house so using the other shower should have been acceptable. Since you had driven all night and arrived much earlier than the 4 PM check-in, we agreed to allow for an early check-in with the understanding that the plumber was still working. You got settled with your things and went fishing on our dock. It turned out, due to the part not fitting that the we and the plumber did not leave until a little after 5pm. Again, we are so sorry, we were not aware that the master shower did not have hot enough water for a comfortable shower for your first night. Thankfully, the other shower always had full hot water.

Beautiful and restful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Hosts Margaret and Kelly were very professional and caring. Kelly let us feed “his” ducks on the beautiful waterfront. Pelican’s Perch was an appropriate name because there was on right near the dock every morning. My kids and I used the available kayaks to paddle out to White Island where there were 15 to 20 pelicans amidst more shorebirds. And the kitchen had new appliances and plenty of utinsils so it was easy to make our Thanksgiving dinner. We enjoyed the hot tub every night and the ping pong table every day! We are already planning our return next summer. The price was very reasonable for the amenities offered.

We are about 20 minutes drive from two beautiful beaches; Pensacola Beach to the East and Perdido Key Beach to the West.
