We also own Pelican 508, a corner unit on the same floor as Pelican 501. Check out that listing at www.vrbo.com/925343. Inquire about discounts for booking both units!

Pelican 501, a corner unit, features lots of windows to enjoy the Florida sun as well as two balconies - one in the master bedroom and another off the living room which overlooks the lazy river and pool area.

Enjoy the waterfront view of the bay from your completely furnished kitchen. All of the kitchen utensils, dishes, pots and pans, etc., are supplied along with a full-size fridge/freezer, microwave, flat-top stove, oven and dishwasher. The eating area and the living room all have a view of the beautiful bay.

 The living room includes a 40-inch flat screen television with cable and a Blu-Ray DVD player. The master bedroom also has its own 40-inch flat screen television, and there is a 19-inch flat screen television in the bunk room. There is FREE wireless internet service in the unit.

The unit also has its own washer/dryer for your use. An ironing board and iron are provided.

Relax on the large balcony while you watch the dolphins and rays swimming in the bay.

Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is a very popular destination. The famous lazy river shown in the pictures along with a separate pool with waterfall is located on the bay side of the property right outside your building. There are hot tubs and grills in the pool area for your use.

Use the elevated walkway to access the sugary white beaches on the Gulf side of the property. You also can use all of the pools and take advantage of the huge free form pool and other private pool on the beach side of the resort. 

The Ramada Inn is right across the street, and you are able to use the kiddie splash area, the free form grotto pool and the swim up bar. There are several on-site restaurants at the Ramada, including one poolside and an outdoor bar/restaurant overlooking the beach.

The Destin/Fort Walton Beach area has incredible dining, shopping and events! Fudpuckers, a popular restaurant, is right next door, and the Boardwalk - featuring multiple restaurants, shops and beachfront volleyball - is just across the street. The convention center and the Gulfarium are less than a quarter-mile away.

We welcome you to our finely appointed condominium to spend your vacation in paradise on the sugary, white-sand beaches and emerald waters of the Gulf Coast. Like so many, you will return year after year!

Great family spring break get away

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pelican 501. The location within the complex was great with a nice view of the pool and lazy river. It has a great patio to sit and enjoy your morning coffee or evening beverage.

The pool area was extremely clean and accessible. The lazy river turned out to be a fantastic way to relax. Since it’s early March, having the main pool heated was a nice touch. Not too warm but comfortable for the weather conditions.

The condo was well appointed and had everything we needed for or stay. Comfortable beds and a fully stocked kitchen made for a nice stay.

We would definitely book here again if we come back to the area.

Awesome and convenient!!

Well maintained and comfortable property with lovely views from the balcony. My family enjoyed our stay - all the conveniences of a home away from home. The heated pools were relaxing! Will definitely be coming back!

The Perfect Condo Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As my family's first time visiting the gulf, this condo was a perfect fit for a girl's getaway. The owner Linn was very communicative and available for questions. I will definitely be staying at his properties in the future! It was a fully stocked condo, ready for cooking, lounging and relaxing. The two balconies gave great views of the beach (from a block away) and the marina. I really like that the building is SMOKING FREE (though other visitors violated this) meaning that there are no foul odors and makes for easy breathing for those of us with allergies. There were 4 in my party, but six people could be accommodated comfortably. If there were anything I could complain about it would be the early check out and late check in, I would've liked to stay longer but rules are rules. I would recommend Pelican 501 to anyone who plans on being a beach bum. There is a walk (less than 10 minutes) to the beach via a skywalk, and may not be the most accessible for those traveling with wheelchairs but it's worth the effort. Nearby shopping and grocery stores are convenient, and most of anything you want to see is within a 15 minute drive. Book your next Fort Walton Beach/ Destin vacation with Linn and Suzanne! You won't be let down!

Beautifully furnished, clean condo with great bay view.

  • 5 of 5

Pelican 501 was perfect for our 5 night stay. The view of the pool area and bay was wonderful to see from the living room and main balcony. Staying right outside of destin was the right choice for us - less traffic, plenty of food options, and ft Walton boardwalk and a beautiful beach right across the street. The suite had everything we needed and more!
