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.

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.

Great Location!!!

  • 4 of 5

We have visited this area of Destin for the last few years and we absolutely love this complex and location. The view is amazing, waking up and looking out to the ocean every morning is breathtaking. Thank you, Michelle, for sharing your home with us.

Great View!

  • 4 of 5

The property was great. The view was awesome. The property was clean. The owner Michele was very easy to get in contact with. She answered all your questions and was just a pleasure to talk to.

We had a disappointment when it came to the beach. At no fault of the owner Michele, we were informed by several people on the beach that as of April 30 2017 you were not allowed to have Tents on the beach. We had several small children that needed this shade and it was a pain to put up several small umbrellas for everyone to get under.

Owner's Response: Dear valued guest. Thank You very much for taking the time to write a review of our property and associated amenities. After all, that's what the facility is all about, i.e. giving folks a good value and a great stay. There is much discussion on umbrellas and tents on the beach and some of the restrictions are due to the fact that our beach gets a lot of visitors and there is only so much room to accommodate everyone. But one of the big factors is the danger that these tents pose when they become torn from their anchors by the wind and blow around. That happened last season and there were some injuries when patrons were struck by the remnants of destroyed umbrellas. Some facilities still allow them, but the trend is to move towards beach safety and not allow them. Our weather changes so rapidly that you don't have time to pull simple umbrellas down, much less a tent or shade structure, and often these are left unattended and then they are truly at the mercy of the wind. Our insurance provider sets some of our guidelines, and I assure you that we do not just apply these rules and restrictions without a lot of discussion and thought before hand. There is no perfect solution, and we understand that small umbrellas are no substitute for a big shade tent. but circumstances beyond our control have the last say in this matter, so for now, shade tents are not permitted. We hope that does not deter you from returning and enjoying another family vacation here or at another of our properties in the area. Thanks again for sharing your opinion. Don & Michelle
