Guestbook comments from the owner

This Destin condo exceeded our expectations. We love the Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort.The view from the condo is breathtaking.Its very roomy and has a well equipped kitchen. Friends of ours stayed in the Pelican building and came over to see our condo and could not believe how beautiful it was and how much bigger it was than theirs. If you have never been to Destin- Just do it! We love it here and plan on coming back next year. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful condo with us.

Very nice condo

  • 4 of 5

The owner was responsive and helpful in every way. The condo had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable. The only negative was the "short"walk to the beach, a little far when carrying umbrella's and chairs, etc. There is a golf cart shuttle service that made beach going MUCH more enjoyable!! I would recommend renting chairs and umbrella's. It was unfortunate that they were pre-set every morning and took up the majority of the good beach space. This is no fault of this particular unit, it must be set up through the condo. The pools were very nice and spacious, we didn't ever use the indoor pool. I would recommend this unit-owner is top notch!

The First of Many Perfect Visits

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurate in every detail.

The pickiest of guests could not have found fault with the condition of the unit. Everything was clean, fresh and well maintained.

My contact with Michelle, one of the owners, was always timely and professional. One very minor issue-mostly our fault-was quickly resolved by a call from Don, the other owner. Customer service? 10 out of 10.

I rented the unit for my brother and sister who, on previous visits, have always stayed at the Hilton. Sorry Hilton! I have an enthusiastic request from my sister (read "strident demand") that all future visits be to the same location.

FYI: As advertised, the resort is on the water, the unit is not (very short walk on the property). What was not clear is that the condo overlooks a beautiful, lighted lagoon. The view at night was picturesque: over the lagoon, across the property beyond the buildings to the framed gulf. Perfect!

Awesome condo! Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

As a first timer to Destin I think the location of the condo was perfect. The place was clean and comfortable. It's not right on the beach but still has a wonderful view. Beach is maybe a 2-3 min walk. Michelle was great and accomidating to deal with.

Excellent All around

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this Condo. Having stayed here once before (2011) we decided to return to Destin and this unit. Working directly with the owners was just great and they made sure everything was perfect and left their direct contact if we needed anything. The condo is nicely appointed, clean and the location- views off the balcony were the best. Evenings were so relaxing sitting on the Balcony and just enjoying the sun sets, Gulf, and Skyline. The Destin Beaches are the Best and the Pool and Jacuzzi were nice and never crowded.

We would absolutely recommend this Condo and are planning our return.

Loved the High Sky Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Condo!! My husband enjoyed his coffee and breakfast out on the balcony while watching the ocean. I loved the stone flooring and the mirrors, it made the place feel so much larger and elegant. The boardwalk to the beach and restaurants close by made having a car obsolete. The only sad point at the Terrace was that the pool was closed, being remodeled and upgraded. So, make your vacation here!! You just can't go wrong!

Thank you for looking into staying in our condo in Destin, Florida. Many of our customers ask if the unit is “on the beach”. The unit is in a newer building that is part of the Pelican Beach Resort and the entire complex is ocean front. That means that as long as you are on the property, you do not need to cross any street to get to the beach. This is especially important if you have small children. You can see the beach from the unit and we have a beautiful Gulf of Mexico view as well as a vista that takes in the Destin Harbor. In the morning, we enjoy watching the fishing fleet as they stop to the southwest and catch the day’s bait. If you want to spend some time on the beach, it is a short stroll to the boardwalk that takes me about three minutes from the bottom of the elevator to walk. We have had no negative comments on the location of the unit relative to the water from our tenants; however we do not represent it as being surfside. Our view is much more dramatic than just looking out at the Gulf especially at night when there is absolutely nothing to see surfside after the sun is gone. The building was designed to be both appealing to the eye and functional and convenient for the visitors. In the winter and spring the sun is on the balcony all afternoon and early evening. In the summer, it gives you a break from the late afternoon heat as it proceeds high overhead and is shaded by the balcony. We know you will enjoy the view no matter if it is breakfast in the morning or a nightcap before bed. There is always something to look at, and the same view is available from the master bedroom, yes, even if you are still in bed. Quite a way to wake up!

Great Location close to everything and a great view...even at night !!!

Pelican Beach is located directly across from the Big Kahuna Water Park on the beach side of Hwy 98. This is a beautiful two bedroom two bath condo in the heart of Destin. It has great balcony views of the beach and the nearby Destin Harbor. That's where the famous fishing fleet is based and in fact, one of our favorite things to do after a relaxing day on the beach is to visit the docks just as the fishing boats come in with the days catch. Just one of the many fun things to do in the area. The Pelican Beach is a self contained resort in itself with tennis courts, three pools, snack bar/restaurant and conference center, just to mention some of the amenities. Grocery’s, restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance and that is a great feature of this location. We didn't forget the beach but everyone knows they are the best in the country and no walking across busy streets to get to the beautiful beach!

There is shopping at the nearby outlet mall if you're into that. Air Force Museums that are free if you want a break from the sun and there is golf right down the road less than a mile. Restaurants abound in the area and offer fresh seafood and an abundance of other cuisines, all just a short drive away.
