Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Thank you so much for considering our unit at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort.

Steve and I purchased our rental in mid 2011, and have enjoyed spending family time at the resort with our children and grand kids.

*******************************************************************

Each year, we continue to make more and more updates to make your vacation experience the best it can be.

Some of the differences you'll find between our room and others (both the privately or resort owned units) are:

- Leather Lazy Boy couch, with recliners on both ends. (All other units have either the old original or recovered sofa, not anywhere near as comfy.)

- New Lazy Boy Loveseat, with a pull out twin bed. (All other units have either the original or recovered loveseat.)

- Two 46 inch flat screen TVs (for units like ours, the resort offers one 42 inch flat screen and another very large old standard hotel unit)

- Larger compact fridge (just replaced the small original 2 cubic foot compact fridge with a 4.4 cubic foot model)

- Larger microwave (just replaced the smaller original unit with a high end convection model)

- Better lighting (lights added to ceiling fans in both bedroom and den area)

- More seating/better chairs (got rid of two old rattan chairs and replaced with four smaller chairs)

- Plus, plus, plus more....

The reason for all the above differences is we really want our unit at the Pelican to feel like home for us and for our guests. I think we've met our goal.

*******************************************************************

About Sue Morrison

We are a retired couple from Iowa who miss the ocean. When we first saw the Pelican Grand, we fell in love and knew we wanted to spend more time there.

Sue Morrison purchased this condo in 2011

Why Sue Morrison chose Fort Lauderdale

The view!!! Being able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner looking out over the ocean. Enjoying a cocktail on the private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Short car ride to many fantastic restaurants, night clubs and shopping areas.

Close to cruise terminals of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a delightful time in room #512! The view was awesome and the accommodations were just right for our family at this time. Unfortunately our flight on 12/25 was canceled and we did not arrive until the afternoon of the 26th. We had planned to explore a bit more but instead stayed mostly at the resort.



We have never traveled before during the Christmas holiday. The hotel seemed to be a bit understaffed but we never had to wait for a table or food. The challenge seemed more to be around the towel situation at the pool and beach as well as accommodating stressed visitors with enough beach due to higher than usual high tides! In the midst of it all, the staff was unbelievably kind and pleasant!



I will sign up to your Facebook page and look forward to another opportunity to visit Ft. Lauderdale again!



Happy New Year!

Best Beach Front Luxury

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented unit 512 twice. The unit itself is extremely well located, comfortable and outstandingly furnished with a balcony overlooking the beach and Atlantic ocean. The staff at the Pelican Grand are very professional, helpful and courteous. The hotel's food and drink are exceedingly good. We plan to go back.

Pelican Grande is all you need!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the accommodations of unit 512! It was easy to get to, near the elevators and not too high in the hotel. We came to thaw out from the NY winter and enjoyed everything the Pelican Grande has to offer. Pool, lazy river, magnificent beach and great food. We barely left the building! Why would we? They even have ice cream for the kids in the hotel store. We know we will back to experience another easy and perfect get away in the future!

Owners Annual Updates to Unit

  • 5 of 5

Steve and I (owners) just got home after spending 4+ weeks at the Pelican this year. Have to say we made many wonderful updates and the unit is in the best shape it's ever been!! Really hated to leave!

A summary of some of the updates/replacements, not only from this year, but last year as well:

- Desk, chair and night table in the bedroom area

- Blinds between the bedroom and den areas

- Leather sofa, with pull outs on both ends

- Coffee and 2 end tables in the den area, as well as the small round table

- Very comfy, sturdy rockers and nice size table on the patio for playing games, eating or just enjoying the scenery

- Etc., Etc., Etc.....

We advertise unit #512 as the "best unit in the resort". All of the rooms at the Pelican are lovely, but ours is a step up in comfort and luxury.

We've had over 450 guests visit our rental since we purchased in 2011. We're very proud of 200+ five star reviews in HomeAway.

We will continue to go above and beyond to make sure every future guest walks into our unit with a "Wow" and out with wanting to come back.

Sue and Steve

This location and condo made for the best Florida vacation yet

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Sue Morrison's sunny bright ocean facing condo. If you want a beach vacation where you can just take an elevator to the first floor and have ocean and beachfront access right there, this condo at the Pelican Grand Hotel in Fort Lauderdale is perfect! We will definitely come back again soon to visit. I highly recommend this condo! You won't be disappointed! Thank you for such accommodating service in such an amazing location, Sue! Everything was perfect!

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for just a couple of nights and had an enjoyable time. The room was clean and large, with two queen beds, separate living room, larger refrigerator, and a balcony with an oceanfront view. We enjoy the beach pool chair service, the lazy river, and the zero entry pool. The food is good as well. There is a nice brunch on Sunday with a steel drum player and singer. The owner was a pleasure to work with, good communication and very friendly.
