Paradise Retreat house description

It's time to kick off your shoes, relax and get away from everyday. And The Pelican's Elbow is the vacation home to help you do just that. It has everything you need for that relaxing week at the seashore, including a large private swimming pool and patio - great for morning coffee instead of a morning commute. The pool is all yours - no sharing with the neighborhood or a condo association. And it's handy, right out the back door, no expeditions necessary.

The Pelican's Elbow is pet friendly, so there's no need to leave your pet in a kennel for a week.

So, don't be crammed into a cramped condo. This beautiful home with its nautical decor, largest in the neighborhood, is perfect for large families or groups. You have room to stretch out (2020 square feet), with a large living room, four bedrooms, two baths, a spacious family room, full kitchen and full laundry room.

The home was recently updated with top quality memory foam mattresses in all bedrooms to ensure a great night's sleep, new porcelain tile floors, flat screen HD TVs throughout and fresh paint.

The large master bedroom features a king size bed, HDTV, VCR/DVD, and private bath. The Kahuna and Palm bedrooms both have queen beds, HDTVs, DVD players and alarm clocks just in case you don't want to sleep in some morning. The Twin bedroom features two twin beds and HDTV with VCR/DVD player. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan. There are two queen sleeper sofas in separate living/family rooms.

The large back yard is fenced for privacy and security and features a large private swimming pool and tropical landscaping. You have a gas grill and picnic table/umbrella on the patio.

At the end of a great day in the sun you can enjoy the spacious family room with flat screen cable HDTV, VCR/DVD and selection of books, more than 150 videos, and family games. Free high-speed wireless Internet is provided.

Kick back, soak up some sun and work on your tan (or lounge in the shade) and enjoy life at The Pelican's Elbow.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: This property is managed and maintained by the owner. I try to provide everything you need for your beach vacation. I live in the Destin area and am on call if any problems arise. I take pride in this property and work hard to make it an enjoyable, clean, well-maintained vacation location.

                      Why the Owner Chose Paradise Retreat:
                      The Pelican's Elbow is a beautiful, well maintained home in a gated beach community. Destin is a family-oriented beach vacation destination, with one of the nicest white sand beaches in the country. Our area has a small-town feel, with lots of shopping and entertainment. And, important to me, it's a loong ways away from snow.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Pelican's Elbow has the largest private pool in the community, in a fenced-in back yard. The pool is 'L-shaped,' 28-1/2 feet long by 9-13 feet wide. Best of all, the pool is all yours – no sharing with the neighborhood or a condo association. Perhaps you are back from an afternoon at the beach, or it’s after dinner – the pool is a great place for the kids (and adults) to enjoy themselves without the need to organize an expedition. You'll have a nice patio beside the pool with a picnic table and gas grill. And there is a good size fenced back yard with several trees (banana, pomegranate) and tropical landscaping. After a long day of enjoying yourself, get a great night's sleep on the new top quality memory foam mattresses throughout the unit.
