Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Barrier Island - Sue and Steve's Pelican Grand

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.

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

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is a Four Star Resort, located directly on the beach in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The oceanfront resort is situated on 500 feet of sandy beach, perfect for tanning and swimming. The property is one of only two resort/hotels in Fort Lauderdale located directly on the ocean, as almost all other hotels/resorts are located across A1A.

The resort requires that you are at least 21 years of age and have a valid credit card to check in.

Check-in 4:00pm, Check-out 11:00am

FEES:

o Valet parking: If you have a car, the resort charges $30/day, plus 11% tax, with in-and-out privileges. Unfortunately, there is no other alternative for parking in the area; however, there is taxi service and a city bus line that runs right outside the resort.

o Housecleaning: $75 Check-out Cleaning fee, plus 11% tax is required. If you wish to have additional cleaning during your visit, the resort changes $35 per occurrence, plus 11% tax. You must request optional housecleaning when you check in if you want your room cleaned and the Consumable Supplies replaced by the Resort staff during your stay. If you do not request optional housecleaning, there will be no replenishment of Consumable Supplies (for example, toilet paper, Kleenex, shampoo, conditioner, soap, coffee, cups, clean towels, etc.) during your stay.

o Reservation Fee: $20 Check-in reservation fee, plus 11% tax. (This is a fee we collect and are required to pass through to the resort.)

o Internet Access: Effective January 23, 2014, the Pelican Grand began charging for Internet access for all privately owned units. The new policy is to charge $19.95 per day per device, plus 11% tax. This seems very high to us, but they claim this is consistent with pricing at other hotels in the area. As an alternative, we suggest you use the personal hotspots that are available on most smart phones as a more economical alternative to signing into the Pelican WIFI. Go to ‘settings’ on your phone and turn on the ‘hotspot’ button. It should show you the name of your phone’s network and the password for you to use on your other devices to hook up. Then go to wireless connections on your laptop, select the name of your phone’s network and enter the password. You can enter multiple devices at the same time on your hotspot network, i.e. I-pads and computers. Please note that if you use this to watch movies or other high data uses, you will want to keep an eye on your service provider’s data limit.

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!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodation, very clean and comfortable. Amazing views over the ocean from the balcony, worth waking early to watch the sunrise. The beach was just gorgeous and the pool and lazy river were fun. We would have loved to have stayed longer and hope return.

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the pelican grand! The accommodations were very comfortable, tastefully decorated, and well appointed. There were only 3 of us but my son absolutely LOVED the fact that it was a suite and let us know the living room was officially his room for the duration...lol. we were there during storms so the winds brought waves and rough waters that dampened our scuba and snorkeling plans a bit but the hotel pool and especially the fabulously relaxing lazy river made for excellent family friendly back up plans. Watching the lightning storms over the water from the patio was absolutely beautiful as well. Breakfast downstairs on the veranda was generous, delicious, and gorgeous! Thank you so much for a lovely stay!

Memorable stay at the Pelican Grand

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay at Sue' s apartment. The apartment was neat and tidy with all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. The best part was that the apartment had an ocean view. Even the staff at the resort was very friendly. Overall a great place to stay in. Would definitely go again.

Incredible and restful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this unit at the Pelican Resort was PERFECT and everything that we were looking for in a family/girls trip. The resort is on the beach with on on site small pool and lazy river. The resort employees were kind and prompt with service - everything from the valet service to the beach front towel attendants. The room was VERY clean and welcoming. The beds were comfy, and we all slept great! The reclining couch was a PLUS. The owners of this unit were prompt in communication and helped us understand how to take full advantage of the best time. I have already recommended this property. We loved getting up and going to the beach all day. We ate at the nice restaurant in the Pelican Resort and LOVED the food and service! They even had creme brûlée for dessert! If you are looking for a beach-side, restful, read-a-great-book vacation location this is the place to stay!

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Pelican is a wonderful location with a breathtaking view of the beach. This unit is one of the nicest rooms that we have stayed, it is upgraded compared to many of the other rooms you might stay in, at the Pelican. You have extras that make it feel like home.

You will find that this owner is wonderful to book with, she is very quick to respond, she makes it a very easy process and is great at communicating all the information you will need to stay in this room.

The price is very reasonable compared to other places to stay in the area, along with a spacious area. Very comfortable furniture and the beds give you a wonderful night's sleep.

Pool and beach area are clean, welcoming and relaxing! We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.
