Pelican Beach, The Terrace condo description
Welcome to Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort 307 – your home away from home!
This is by far the best location in Destin and the best value for the money too. Please call us and schedule your fall vacation or weekend getaway!! And remember, it is never too early for Spring Break or Summer 2015.
Our tastefully decorated condo has a large kitchen, 3 FULL SIZED bedrooms (no bunk room) and 3 FULL baths, covering 1400 square feet. There are two master suites with private baths, and a third bathroom for use by the third bedroom and other occupants. We also have a sleeper sofa for the extra kids as well as a play yard crib for our youngest guests making the capacity of the unit 8 people plus baby, large enough for your extended family or even two families!
Enjoy our large, fully accessorized kitchen with all standard appliances plus microwave, blender, coffee maker and toaster. The adjacent dining area has a capacity for 9 people. We have a washer and dryer in the unit for your use as well. Our home is decorated in relaxing colors to remind you of the reasons you are staying with us. The master suite has a private door out onto the large wrap around main balcony, a king size bed with BRAND NEW mattresses (Dec. 31, 2013) and memory foam topper, dressing area & Jacuzzi tub in the private bath. The middle bedroom has twin beds with memory foam toppers and is adjacent to the hall bath. The 2nd master suite has a comfortable queen size bed with memory foam topper and a private balcony. This is a fully accessorized suite with a wet bar, small refrigerator, microwave and separate climate controls. All bedrooms have new, comfortable carpet.
The living room is detailed with a 37'' flat screen TV and DVD player, the master suite has a 32'' flat screen TV with DVD, the second master suite has a 24'' flat screen TV, and the kids' room has a 21'' flat screen TV as well (4 TVs total). Bring your tablet or laptop, as we have wireless high speed internet which can be connected by wire as well for those bad signal days, and of course, local phone service.
The unit is conveniently located on the third floor, high enough to enjoy the view, but low enough to get you in and out quickly. We are located on the beach side of the building (an important benefit as some 3/3 units are on the street side) so you can enjoy views of the ocean & see vistas of the lakes, fountain & picturesque bridge crossing in front of you from our wrap around balcony. If your kids are old enough to be at the pool alone, you can still watch them swim from the balcony. The master has private access to the large balcony, and the second master has its own private balcony facing the lake and ocean. We are about 250 yards from the beach via a dedicated boardwalk with no streets to cross – you never leave the property. The walk takes 3 to 4 minutes. Why pay $1000 more per week for a similar condominium directly on the beach?
All amenities available at Pelican Beach Resort are at your disposal. The Terrace building has its own pool, hot tub, gas grills and exercise center, but as our guest, you may also use the two pools at the Pelican building, hot tub, baby pool, tennis courts, exercise center and sun deck, or enjoy a snack at the Market Café or a drink at the beach front Tiki Bar (both open seasonally). Kids can participate in the spring and summer Kid’s Club activities. All of the pools are heated in fall, winter and spring, so swimming is available anytime! And of course, there is the beach, consistently voted one of Florida's best beaches. Enjoy the powder white sand between your toes, crystal green warm water and have fun!
And you know what they say – LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort is located in the heart of Destin, close to shopping, many restaurants, and activities including golf, fishing, parasailing, dolphin cruises, diving, Big Kahuna’s Water Park (seasonal), the Track Theme Park and miniature golf and the Destin Harbor. Destin Commons, our local shopping district with trendy shops, restaurants, and a Cinemark theater is just a few miles down the road, and the Silver Sands Outlet Shops, with every name brand imaginable, are just a short distance farther!
Concerned about the busy vacation season? Don’t be, we have many local professionals that we can call on to address any needs you may have, just call us. The Pelican Beach Resort also has a guarded entrance with manned security seasonally. Different colored flags are flown on the beach daily indicating the mood of the Gulf (this is very important). Our unit has a coded digital lock and we will personalize an entry code for you – no worrying about shared keys (or losing keys) or unauthorized access.
Stay with us during the 4th of July holiday as thanks to the wrap around balcony, on a clear night you can see fireworks in all directions. Same for New Year’s....fewer people and pleasant weather.
We will do everything we can to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions or would like more details about the condominium or location. We have many local people at our disposal, but we self manage this unit, and pass on the savings to you. We don’t charge “reservation fees”, “administrative fees” or have other hidden costs, what you see here and on the rate schedule below is what we charge. We look forward to hearing from you!!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q:What are the most enjoyable things to do in Destin?
A:The beach is number 1 for sure! Our condo also has resort amenities such as pools, hot tubs, a restaurant, tiki bar, exercise rooms, outdoor grills, and plenty of spots to relax in the sun. Destin is a nice mix of friendly Southern people with tropical flair! There are plenty of places to shop, eat, drink and have fun very close to our condo. You can even take a helicopter tour of the city and beach!
Q:What makes your vacation rental property more special than the others?
A:That's easy - it' s us, the owners. Ken and I have both had our own businesses in the past, and we know customer service is what makes our guests happy and keeps them coming back. We personally manage this unit - we don't leave that to some company to whom our apartment is one on a list or a number on a peice of paper. We want our guests to be happy, refer their friends and return. To do that we know we must be responsive to our renters and provide a place they can truly have a good time. Most of us only get vacation a few weeks per year, and we want to make sure you feel that you spent your time wisely! Just check our reviews on this site.
Q:What is the coolest activity nearby?
A:That's a tough one as there is so much to do. There are great restaurants, shopping and activities. If we'd have to pick a few we'd say Big Kahuna's Water Park (right across the street) and all the wave runnner/dolphin watching tours! There is also fishing and parasailing.
Q:Why are the rates so different for the same apartments?
A:When we started as renters we noticed that too. We think there are a few reasons. 1. Some of the listings are actually rental companies, not individuals like us, who have to hide fees or their commission in the rates. 2. Some people think they have to make a profit on each rental, and set their prices higher not realizing full occupany and happy guests is what brings people back. Yes, we have costs too, but this condo is not our main business, we would just like it to pay for itself. 3. Cleaning fees - we make sure our condo is professionally cleaned after each guest to hotel standards or better, and that is not cheap. Most cleaning services, ours included, charge considerably more than the cleaning fee we charge our guests. Some owners try to make up for that in the rent, others like us look at it as a cost of doing business.
Q:What if there is something wrong with the apartment when I arrive - you are not local?
A:Good question - renting a vacation condo is very different from booking a hotel as we cannot simply 'change your room.' Of course, the benefits - extra space, full living area, fully accesorized kitchen, and price per capita certainly make a vacation condo a much more pleasant and cost effective experience than a hotel. But, a condo is a lived in home, no condo is perfect, and it has its imperfections. In addition, just as in your own home, items do break and other minor issues may arise, and believe it or not, some guests do not tell us when they find something wrong or damage something, and if not caught by the cleaning company, it may not be noticed until you arrive. We don't live in Destin, but we are there 4 to 5 times per year to check the apartment and have local people who can be dispatched quickly to address concerns. The complex has onsite maintenance, and we have our own as well. We do everything we can to make sure your stay meets your expectations and is enjoyable.
Now the fine print:
All guests must read and agree to follow the rules & regulations for renting Terrace 307 which will be provided with our reservation materials. You must be 25 years old to rent our condo. We will require a $350 refundable security deposit by check or the purchase of loss damage waiver ($50 non refundable) at the time of reservation. Call for details.
Ok that's it - Thanks again!

About the owner: Thank you for viewing our home. The fact that you are searching for a vacation rental on VRBO tells us you are an informed and intelligent consumer, and we have done our best to provide you with all the information you may seek regarding our condo. However, if there is any other information we can provide for you, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us. Now, a little about us. We are a family of four from Houston, Texas, and we love Florida! The excitement starts for our boys, Sasha, 13, and Kurt, 11, the minute we tell them we are going on another ''Florida trip.'' We have made the drive many times, as renters before and now as owners, and believe it or not, the boys are so happy, the 9 hour drive is actually easier than going around the corner. They are generally in the pool or at the beach within 30 minutes of arrival, no matter what time of day! So, not only do we rent this condo, but we use it ourselves every chance we get, at least 4 to 5 times spread throughout the year. Our frequency in using it ourselves ensures it is in top condition for our guests - we'd have it no other way. We all work hard at our jobs, and having a place like Destin to go to unwind can be a lifesaver. All it takes is a few days of fun at the beach, or quiet time, whichever you prefer, to re-charge those batteries to continue our hectic lives. We hope you will come stay with us and enjoy yourself, making our home in Destin your annual vacation destination as we have.
Why the Owner Chose Pelican Beach, The Terrace:
We’d love to have you come stay with us in our very own home away from home. Ken and his brother traveled to Destin as children, and the memories are still fresh. We bought our condominium here so we could give our children the same memories, and invite you to enjoy this experience with your family! Destin is the perfect mix of activity and relaxation with something for everyone. The Pelican Beach Resort is located close to everything you will want in Destin and consists of two buildings, the smaller Terrace building where our condo is located, and the much larger Pelican building. The Terrace building has 97 units, only 7 per floor, and is set apart from the larger building (with over 300 condominiums). Our unit is an end unit, on the beach side, so it is quiet. There are two theme parks within a mile of the property, plenty of restaurants, shopping and activities close by. Destin Harbor is about 2 miles west, in which boating, fishing, dolphin tours, parasailing and every other imagineable amenity is available. We chose this particular location because like most, we wanted to have everything close by if we needed it, but also be in a place where we could do nothing!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love the fact that our building has its own pool, hot tub and fitness center. Although we frequently use the pools and amenities at the main building, available to you as our guest, residents from that building never come over to Terrace. We have the best of both worlds! Although not directly on the beach, the view from our wrap around balcony of the ocean, lake and fountains will certainly put you at ease. We also avoid the noise of the beach, and constant flow of beachgoers right off the balcony. Whatever your desire, our condo at Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort has something for everyone.
