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.

ADDITIONAL CHARGES/FEES:

o IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ !!! At the time of your booking, HomeAway/VRBO will be collecting and remitting Broward County Tourist Development Tax (6%). This will be included/shown on your quote as "Stay Tax". IN ADDITION, Steve and I need to collect and remit Florida State Tourist Development Tax (an additional 6%). UNFORTUNATELY, at this time, there is not a way for us to build this into your quote. THEREFORE, once you book our rental, we will be sending an ADDITIONAL payment request to you for the 6% Florida Tax. We apologize that this is confusing and an additional tax that was not included in your original quote. HomeAway/VRBO is working on a better way to streamline tax collections to make this easier for both of us.

o Valet parking: If you have a car, the resort charges $33/day, plus 12% 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 is required. If you wish to have additional cleaning during your visit, the resort changes $35 per occurrence, plus 12% 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. (This is a fee we collect and are required to pass through to the resort.)

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 hotel suites in 2011

Why Sue Morrison chose Downtown

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 hotel suites 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 place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The resort is great, the staff is friendly and helpful, the room was super comfortable. The beach is great, love that it includes towels and beach chairs and umbrellas. Happy hour is a bonus as are the heated pool and lazy river. I took a Lyft everywhere so I didn't pay for parking. The only downside for me was WiFi... Not the owners fault, but I didn't pay the fee to use it. At a resort like this, it should be included... But even so, if I ever go back to ft. Lauderdale, I'd stay here!

Owner's Response: Hi Jackie, So happy to hear you and Jim had a wonderful time!!!! I really apologize for the WiFi, it should have been free for you two. Unfortunately, ever since hurricane Harvey, something has been wrong with the Pelican's system. I've been working with them to try and fix long term, in the meantime, they've been waiving the WiFi fee at checkout. Again, very glad you had fun and hope to hear from you again. Happy Holidays, Sue

The location for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the location. From the pool to the beach-side view condo, the stay was impeccable. I have nothing bad to say, but how it completed our 10 year anniversary with a dinner on the beach.

Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot beat this beachfront location and the amenities in the unit - microwave oven, toaster, coffee, good-sized fridge - and in the hotel - zero entry pool AND lazy river, restaurant on the water, ice cream shop! - were exactly what we needed, particularly with two toddlers. The separate living space with comfy couches, tv, and balcony were exactly what mom & dad needed while the aforementioned toddlers snoozed. Thank you for a great vacation!

Loved being so close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at Pelican Grand. Loved walking on the beach, the staff were exceptionally accommodating, the beds and pillow were great. We used Sue's suggestions for area restaurants and shopping and were quite pleased. We also recommend 15th Street Fisheries. We spent a good amount of time on the balcony enjoying the ocean view and sound.

Perfect unit for family w preschoolers

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two preschoolers and this was the perfect unit for us. First of all, the suite is very spacious. Our two girls camped out in the living room area and made that their room all week. One slept on the twin pull-out and the other slept on the couch, or some nights, on the floor in a homemade tent. It gave mom and dad privacy in the main room where we could read or watch our own shows. We spent a lot of time on the deck with the rocking chairs watching the rain. What's great about the resort is the beach is right.there. No having to cross the street and the beach entry pool was great for our littles who cannot swim yet. The unit has a larger than dorm-size fridge where we kept a lot of groceries and plenty of room to keep dry good snack items too. Having a toaster was very handy too.

Since we are always on-the-go at home, we truly rested on this trip and ate a lot of meals in our room. There is a small table where four can eat dinner comfortably. Well done to the owners who really thought of their guests by keeping the unit clean and modern with plenty of extra amenities. It truly is the best unit in the resort!
