Our 3rd floor unit is located in The Terrace, which is one of 2 condominium complexes within the gated Resorts of Pelican Beach, one of the finest resorts in Destin. The condominiums are located on the beach side of Highway 98 in the heart of Destin. These facilities are beautifully landscaped with numerous palm trees & other plants. The resort offers a quiet atmosphere while being conveniently located near Destin’s finest attractions.
From our unit, we have a fabulous view of the heated pool & poolside hot tub, cooking area (2 gas grills), & a beautiful lake complete with two fountains. We can also see the Destin Bridge & the gulf. While on our balcony, we are close enough to the pool and cooking area to talk to friends and family as they swim or cook, or leisurely soak in the hot tub. The beach is only a short stroll from the condo, or you can ride to the beach via the resort’s seasonal beach tram. It’s truly an easy walk to the beach. In fact, we walk nearly every time ourselves.
The Terrace offers a heated pool with hot tub, gas grills (which are kept very clean), and an indoor poolside fitness center. The Terrace also shares amenities with Pelican Beach. Together, there are three pools (gulf front, lake front (our view), and an indoor pool), steam room and sauna. Amenities also include a kiddie pool and a pool side deli/restaurant, two tennis courts, shuffleboard, and a video game room. Both complexes have fitness centers. There is also a beachfront Tiki bar that offers beach service, along with a provisions shop. There is an organized summer program for kids ages 4 to 12 (Play Zone)....moreless
Wow, where to start?! We arrived late on Saturday evening and instantly felt the stress of travel melt away when we saw this beautiful condo. Everything was clean and well maintained, beautiful grounds and friendly staff. Made a couple visits to the beach (nice but very crowded) and spent lots of time at the pool. Very quiet in the condo, could not hear neighbors with small children in the next unit so we felt as though we were the only ones there. Plenty of shopping and restaurant choices nearby, outlet mall less than 10 miles away. We would recommend The Track (go-karts & mini golf) and Southern Star Dolphin Cruise, both were lots of fun. We were a bit disappointed that Big Kahuna's wasn't open when we visited but we had checked out their website before leaving home so we knew that in advance. This was our first visit to the Destin area but is definitely a place we will consider for a repeat vacation and I only hope this same condo will be available for that trip.

This condo was everything we hoped for on our spring break trip. The convenient location was within walking distance of many things and the beach is just a quick walk from the condo, across a boardwalk to the private beach. The resort does offer beach chairs and umbrellas for a fee. Everything was clean and well maintained.
