Pelican Beach Resort condo description
The gorgeous beach front location and panoramic views of Destin's world renowned white sugar sand beaches and azure water make this lovely resort condominium the perfect vacation getaway for up to six people. This 17th floor unit affords breathtaking views from both the front and rear looking down the full length of the Destin Harbor and across the Choctawhatchee Bay as you are walking into your unit and then, of course, your own private balcony overlooking the beach and Gulf of Mexico.
The unit is fully equipped with TVs and media players as well as all the appliances you will need. The kitchen is fully appointed with all the china, silverware, variety of glassware,cooking and serving utensils and appliances you will need for your stay.
Just across the street is the areas best water park, Big Kahunas, and there are excellent restaurants ranging from 4 star to casual dining and Pizza all around. I call Destin a big little town because it is small enough to be charming yet it has world class amenities and restaurants including being one of the top golfing destinations in the Southern United States.
The beaches in Destin have been ranked best in the US by experts in such things and are ranked among the top in the world. The sugar white sand has to be seen to be appreciated and the effect it has on the water color is truly stunning.
If you love deep sea fishing you are in for a treat. Destin has the largest Charter fleet in Florida due to fact that its location is the closest to deep water in Florida which makes it a fantastic fishing venue for marlin, grouper, red snapper, wahoo, cobia, king mackerel, sail fish and amberjack. I can honestly say I have never had a bad fishing trip out of Destin and I have gone many times.

Let me start off with the positives...Booking was really easy and follow up was quick. They did provide you with little things like trash bags and kitchen was stocked. They also provided plenty of towels and extra sheets. The views are great. The negatives would be that you are getting an older condo that is not up to date. They say washer and dryer but it is one that is shared with the entire floor and costs $1 to use each time you do wash. It looks like when they built the unit, they didn't do any upgrades on counters, appliances, or fixtures. Bedspreads were older and the bunk bed mattresses have rips in them. The walls are thin and you could here the neighbors partying until well into the early morning hours. The yellow chair in the living room needs to be replaced as it is very dirty. However, I would say the worst part of the trip would be the property itself. This is a huge building with over 300 units. Every morning at 7am (and sometimes before) the guy down on the beach starts setting up the umbrellas (the ones you rent). He takes every front row spot and will refuse to move if you ask him. If you are not down there before 7am, you will not have a spot on the beach overlooking the ocean. This was very frustrating. If you did go down and try and save a spot, the other guests crowd around you and one time put their chairs right in front of my blanket. I don't want to be fighting for beach space especially in late September. Sorry for the harsh review but I am not sure why this condo got so many good reviews. I would not stay at this property again.

Owner response: You might want to look at the 34 positive reviews to this person's one which is basically the work of someone who is probably hypercritical of everything and has serious anger issues. The review is for the most part is untrue and grossly exaggerated. The unit is very clean and in very good condition. Its not a granite counter top kitchen and the appliances are not stainless. He could have seen that from the photos on the site. The bunk bed mattresses are only a year old and are not ripped at all. A very nice washer and dryer room are just down the hall from the unit and are higher quality and faster than the normal home type. A dollar per wash and dry is cheap.The bedspreads are clean and look just fine. This person could have no idea of the age. I bought this unit because Pelican Beach Resort is one of the nicest best kept condos in Destin and has great amenities. The views from the front and back are arguably the best in Destin. Instead of enjoying the great deal this man was given for a week at the beach in a really nice Prime Gulf Front condo this man went down to the beach and told the beach service man to move his equipment like he owns the resort. There is plenty of room on the beach. If he expects the beach to himself he should have rented a $5,000 a week beach house. I do admit the yellow chair is ready to be replaced and I am doing that within a few days of this response. Please read the other reviews as the person who wrote these things is doing people a great disservice.

Owner easy to work with. Condo is very comfortable. Decorated nicely. Has everything you need. Any complaints would be so minor they wouldn't be worth mentioning. Bed was comfortable. The views from up high are great. Hope to rent again next year. Pelican Beach is a great place to stay and this condo is top notch! You can't go wrong here.

This was our first time in Destin and we liked it very much. It was too cold to get in the water but the unit and the view were very nice. The owner was also acoomodating when we asked to check in early. Thank You!

This condo was exactly as we expected it to be. The views from the balcony were amazing and we were able to eat dinner out there several evenings. Being able to go outside and be on the beach was the best part. The location of the condo in Destin was close to everything you need. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a great rental at a great price. Dealing with Holly made the whole experience a breeze (my first VRBO experience) and I will definitely consider staying again. Thank you so much!
