About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Life's a beach - and you won't forget it here at this two-bedroom + bunkroom condo, where sun streams across sugar-sand beaches, where a lazy river winds around swaying palmettos, where worries cease to exist. (We're serious about this one. You'll be asked to kindly dispose of any worries in a regulation-sized Ziploc.)

But in case you do forget that life is a beach, you'll be reminded by the condo's airy layout, the serene, sea-breezy décor, the ocean blues and aquamarines, the rattan chairs and wicker baskets that remind us of wild saw palmettos against the sea.

Relish, savor, indulge, relax, and unwind in your newfound tropical bliss, where the sun-drenched days seem to stretch on forever and the kids are never hungry or tired (we think it's something in the water).


A bright, fully-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar (perfect for eggs and mango juice). A peaceful master bedroom with its own private bath, plus two additional comfy rooms (one with a queen bed and one with bunked twins). A living room that lets in enough sunshine to ward off vampires.

The condo overlooks tons of palmettos and a sparkling lazy river that kids and adults love. Slide open the doors to the balcony—and they practically require you to enjoy a batch of mojitos while you watch the sunset.


Plus, there are tons of amenities, including 7 (count 'em, 7!) outdoor pools, three whirlpool spas, plus a lazy river with zero-depth entry so you and your little ones can ease in. You'll have access to the Grotto Pool with swim-up bar, fitness center to work off the mojitos, and barbecue area.

And if you feel moved to yell "cowabunga" when you cannon-ball into one of the 7 pool? Well, we won't tell anyone.

Plus the beach is just a short stroll away... simply cross over the Sky Bridge and your feet will be in the sand in 3-5 minutes. Of course you are also welcome to use the 5,000 sq ft gulfside pool and kiddie spray park.


Located at Destin West on Okaloosa Island, your new favorite home away from home is just steps from the shore. It's also minutes away from deep-sea fishing (reel 'em in!), restaurants and nightclubs (get your groove on at The Swamp), mini golf and real golf (FORE!), plus all the water sports your beach-lovin' heart could desire.

So if you love the place so much that you end up with a tattoo of Pelican 505 on your ankle?…well, we just want to put it out there that we are officially not on the hook for that.

Get in touch start making your mermaid-inspiring, kid-happiness-making, mojito-enjoying vacation a reality!​

What a great Honeymoon - we rented a unit from David Jenn , this one and it was furnished perfectly and we had everything we needed to enjoy a week from home. David was wonderful about responding back with any questions we had which made our vacation even more enjoyable. We went out to eat probably half the week and the rest was nights in. The kitchen was stocked with pots/pans etc. We enjoyed the lazy river. Adventure Marina is where we stored our two wave runners we brought with us - Which worked out great 7 days andthe price was great and we had 24 hour use and could put in and out at anytime Perfect place to store a boat and its only about a mile away. We went to Crab Island which was fun like always. The kids enjoyed the lazy river as well as the adults - The beach cart was really awesome and having chairs and umbrella and built in cooler - made the trip across the walkway alot better. all in all it was Picture Perfect We did charter fishing boat - for 5 hours which was amazing. They did all the cleaning and had a fish for dinner that night and brought the rest home. You won't be sorry with this unit ... Thanks David

This is the second time staying at Destin west and i recommend this place and also the heron PH-09 with the roof top and hot tub. We are getting ready to book again for this summer

Very nice!

Very nice place! The condo is great! We were bummed that not all of the pools were heated, but there was still plenty to do and places to swim.

Roomy condo overlooking lazy river

  • 5 of 5

The unit is nicely decorated. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Beds are comfortable. Lazy river and pools are well kept and clean. It was so nice having the beach cart, beach chairs and other beach toys to use. A couple of things need to be fixed - sliding glass door in master is extremely hard to open; master tv would not work with remote; tv in bunkbed room was totally missing the remote.

Great Family Condo and Resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Pelican 505 and the unit was serene; exactly as advertised. The Destin West Resort has excellent amenities and is in a great location. Our grandchildren loved the multiple pools, lazy river, access to the beach, and the beach toys provided. We usually like to stay at condos with ocean front views but we loved the bay view from our balcony and it was easy to get to the beach across the sky bridge. Everything went very smoothly during our week.
