About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hello and welcome to our colorful condo!

Our peaceful and inviting nautical condominium is perfect for an amazing beach vacation. With a great location on the surreal Emerald Coast, a 700 foot Lazy River, you are sure to come back year after year. This unit is a groundfloor unit/lanai where guests can sun or step outside the gate into the lazy river with a gorgeous bayside backdrop. The waterfall pool, gradual entry pool, and two large hot tubs provide a variety of activities for water lovers. The patio/sunning decks in this water area provide both shade and sun for people of all ages. Large lounge chairs, tables & chairs, umbrellas are provided for your leisurely days spent by the lazy river. Grills w/ tables are provided in the green areas as well as a walkway for strolling by the bay and marina. Free beach service is provided when you go to the ocean. A splash park, toddler pool, hot tub, and Destin West's largest pool and exercise facility are the additional amenities found on the beach side. You can easily access the beach side by walking the sky bridge from bay to beach.

LOCATION:

Our condominium is centrally located between Destin and Fort Walton Beach on Okaloosa Island. We are five miles from Destin and one mile from Fort Walton Beach. You are in the middle of two of the best vacation cities in America. Not only do you have four miles of un-developed land on one side (free of mass crowds of people), but on the other side you have access to the Gulfarium, beachside restaurants and shops, fishing, water-sports, and more. Take your pick! Either side has the vacation you have been waiting for.

FEATURES:

Not only is our location perfect and our condominium's new, but the view is unforgettable. Imagine an oasis of palm trees with cool, turquoise water running like ribbon (the lazy river) around gorgeous tropical landscaping. Lounge on our large porch and overlook sailboats floating by on the inner coastal waterway while watching the kids float by on the lazy river.

BAYSIDE POOLS:

Close your eyes on our private patio and listen to the waterfall hit the water in the additional heated pool and you will think you are in a tropical paradise. Or enjoy the 5000 sq.foot pool, gym, and kiddy water playground at Destin West across the street. We also have internet access for those of you who need to connect for business. With so many features, how could you pass this up?

The new Emerald Coast Convention Center

Beachfront restaurants...The Gulfarium

Okaloosa Fishing Pier....The Boardwalk

Shopping.................Deep sea fishing

Snorkeling...............Diving

Another Great Vacation at Pelican L-01

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this particular condo. It's closeness to the lazy river, the lanai overlooking the lazy river, and the vast entertainment choices within walking distance. We spent many enjoyable hours in the aforementioned lazy river, the pool, the spa areas, and just soaking up the sun on the lanai. The atmosphere of this community is very family oriented and my family found our condo well equipped to handle the needs of our creature comforts-even had Wi-Fi for those that require electronic non-sun related therapy....what more can a modern family ask for....at least I got them out on the lanai---in the "Sun"...while not in the lazy river. Thanks again to the Bill Tumlin family and staff for such a great vacation in a clean, spacious, and home away from home feeling that ya'll(yes---ya'll) created!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a great stay! The "closeness to the lazy river" and the lanai are something you have to see to value its location. Thank you for your mention of the creature comforts provided, the WIFI as an important feature, and the atmosphere at Destin West , a "family oriented community". We appreciate you as great guests. Thank you for your high praise of our family/staff as property managers and housekeepers. We all--with the owners--try to make our guests' stay as comfortable and clean as we would want it to be. Your appreciation means so much to all who involved. We hope you'll be back soon! Best regards , Bill & Meredith Tumlin

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 2 boys (9 and 5) had a blast! This condo and facilities are fantastic! My boys loved the lazy river and pools! The walk to the beach was easy and the beaches are private. Conveniently located near things to do and places to eat. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and are already talking about planning our next trip here next year! Thanks to Meredith for helping us and providing all the useful information beforehand!

Beautiful!! We can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo so much! It was perfect for us and our 3 kids. The kids loved the bunk bed area. The lazy river and pools were also a big hit with all of us. The condo was very clean and well appointed. We had everything that we needed! We can't wait to visit this condo again as soon as possible!

Beautiful View and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted a property with easy access to the beach, a pool (in case of a beach closure), a cozy interior & a view in case of rainy weather. This property had it all! It is close to the Gulfarium and so many great restaurants and activities in Ft. Walton and Destin. We loved being able to walk right out to the zero entry pool and lazy river, which my husband and I enjoyed as much as our 3 1/2 year-old. When we weren't floating around or at the beach, we loved eating meals on the patio. The walk across the bridge made going to the beach convenient for us too. The beach service was awesome, so we could enjoy shade without lugging heavy chairs and an umbrella back and forth. The condo was spotless (and looks even better in person) and the kitchen had all of the comforts of home. Our only complaint was the sofa was uncomfortable to sit on, as the cushions sank down and you could feel the bar from the pull-out bed hitting your legs. It wouldn't have been an issue, as we don't usually sit around on vacation, except we had a rainy afternoon where we were stuck inside and put on a movie. Still, we enjoyed the view of all the palm trees and river through the rain, and each night the grounds were lit up so beautifully. We will definitely stay here again!
