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 your money. We only have a few good summers weeks left, and we want them rented!. Don't wait, reserve now!
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, making the capacity of the unit 8 people, large enough for your extended family or even two families! Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort 307 is a fully accessorized vacation condominium. Activities on the property and close by include swimming, tennis, golf, fishing, parasailing, dolphin cruises and the beach.
Condo Details: Our home is decorated in fresh colors to remind you of the relaxing reasons you are staying with us. Enjoy our large, fully accessorized kitchen with all standard appliances plus microwave, blender, coffee maker and toaster with dining capacity for 9 people. We have a washer and dryer in the unit for your use as well. The living room is detailed with a 37 inch flat screen TV and DVD player, the master suite has a 32 inch flat screen TV and DVD, the second master suite a 24 inch flat screen TV and the kids' room has a 21 inch flat screen TV (4 TVs total!). Bring your laptop as we have wireless high speed internet (with a wired connection for those 'bad signal' days), and of course, local phone service.
Resort Details: Concerned about the busy vacation season? Don’t be, we have 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 seasonal security. 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. 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, sauna and sun deck.
Why Destin?: We’d love to have you come stay with us in our very own home away from home. We traveled to Destin as children, and the memories are still fresh in our mind. We bought our condominium so we could give our children the same memories, and invite you to enjoy this experience with your family! Nothing makes our 10 and 12 year olds happier than loading the car for a “Florida trip.” 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 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.

Fun Family Vacation
Fun Family Vacation
Our group was 2 grandmas, kids and grandkids (total 15) and we had a great time. Three different condos were rented in the Terrace Building and, while everyone liked their condo, they really liked ours the best. The condo was so spacious. We really liked the convenience of several nearby eating establishments - the Pancakery and Another Broken Egg for breakfasts and Mellow Mushroom Pizza. Also, even though it is considered "off season" there was plenty to do with the beautiful sand, ocean and pools as well as Harbor Walk, bumper cars and dune buggy race tracks and the alligator exhibit. All in all, everyone was said they'd like to go again.

Owner response: We are glad your extended family liked our building. We have been in a number of the condos at The Terrace building as guests before we bought ours, and to visit others after, and they are all nice. Fortunately, we have one of the larger more spacious units, and its location in the building on the third floor on the beach side can't be beat! We are glad you were able to get out to some of the local attractions, there is something for everyone in Destin, and we are right in the middle of all of it. We hope to see you again soon.
Our family of 6 just returned from our vacation in Destin. The condo was absolutely perfect for us. So spacious we never felt crowded at all. It was a great location, within walking distance of many attractions and places to eat. Our favorites to eat we're Dewey Destin's and definitely the Panckery just next door. Right across the street was the Big Kahuna with miniature golf, go carts, and a few rides. Would definitely want to stay here again!!!!

Great Vacation Condo for Our Tennessee Family
Great Vacation Condo for Our Tennessee Family
This was a grandparent planned vacation for kids (in their 30's) and grandkids (three ranging 6-11 years), a total of 8 family members. We all came away very happy with Ken & Rita's excellent Pelican Beach Terrace condo property in the heart of Destin, FL. Our family really enjoyed the condo's location...the close proximity to a great private beach (Ken & Rita even provided chairs and an umbrella that we supplemented), the super water park across the street, and the many close shopping and dining options. The morning and evening views from the condo's balconies were relaxing and beautiful, and the very nice pools and amenities of the Pelican Beach Resort gave us a variety of day and evening activities for everyone. Most obvious from the time we walked into the condo was the excellent care provided the property...particularly the cleanliness and the quality of new appliances. When we booked the vacation with Ken & Rita, they passed on a wealth of good information and tips that made our stay enjoyable. For dining, we all loved Miller’s Ale House (2 miles), the Mellow Mushroom pizza shop (right next door), the really great BBQ at the Hog’s Breath Café (1.5 miles), and the “alligator floor show” at Fudpuckers (2 miles). We can add to their great recommendations the Dewey Destin for the best seafood we ate that week (2 miles) and parasailing for all at Just Chute Me (1.5 miles). Friends of ours told us to go to Captain Dave’s for seafood and we were not happy at all…it was very pricy, service lacking, and food was poor quality (7 miles and not worth the drive). Dewey Destin just down the street was fabulous seafood. We surely hope there’s another trip to Destin soon for us. When there is, there’s no need for us to look for a place…we plan to book our stay again with Ken & Rita. Our thanks to them for their part in making our vacation wonderful for the whole family.

Owner response: We glad you enjoyed your time in Destin, and now can't wait for our next trip ourselves! We try to get there at the beginning of the summer to make sure the condo is ready for our summer guests, and then again at the end for our vacation and to prepare for the fall and winter guests. It sounds like you found a number of great places and thanks for sharing them with the viewers of our site. We'll add a few to our recommendations as well. We wish all the best for the rest of the year.
The pictures do not do any justice for this condo. The condo was very clean and every thing needed was there. Ken and Rita were a joy to work with. They answered all of my questions and also offered guidance on the many things to do in Destin. We are already planning to go back next year! If you are looking for a condo that is clean, has every thing you need, inexpensive, close to the beach and have owners (not a management company) that will work with you this is the place.

Awesome condo!! Would recommend and definitely stay again!!
Awesome condo!! Would recommend and definitely stay again!!
We truly enjoyed our stay in this condo. The place is HUGE, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, with tons of room throughout the unit; perfectly described in the listing with great photos of the unit. It is immaculately well kept and beautifully designed. The wrap-around balcony was amazing as well. Very close to the pristine beaches and all of the great locations in the Destin area. Communication with the owners was also terrific, as they pretty much walked us through the very simple steps to check in and get into the unit. The staff on duty (we actually arrived pretty late that night) was also remarkably helpful. Once there, the ample information we received from the owners provided us with a detailed list of all the great things to do in the area, which we thoroughly enjoyed. This is a place we will absolutely recommend to our family and friends, and we look forward to staying there again as soon as possible.

I would definately stay at Ken & Rita's Condo again, it was everything it said it would be, lots of room, all the amenities one could wish for and the view was wonderful from both sides of the building. We had a wonderful 2 week stay August thru September, our first visit to Destin definately a re-do, our Family from England enjoyed all that Destin and the Emerald Coast had to offer. Our best restaurant find in Destin was John O Quigley's, Irish Sports Bar & Grill, excellent cuisine. Thank You Ken and Rita for being so helpful and caring about our Family Reunion/Vacation you sure helped make it a pleasurable experience. We will be in touch again.

We enjoyed our stay in this condo! It has two "master" bedrooms with a balcony for each, and another bedroom and hall bathroom. It was large enough for two families to stay very comfortably. It is just a short walk to the beach and close to many places to eat and shop! Ken and Rita were very friendly and helpful. Upon returning to Destin,we would stay here again!

Owner response: Thank you for the nice words. Ken grew up in the South, and the most important part of operating any business, especially a vacation condo rented to others, is hospitality. Most owners we know in our resort are like us, which is probably why the Terrace and Pelican Beach Resort are so popular. It is a great location with plenty of amenities, but thoughtful owners and management complete the package. We look forward to seeing you again. Have a great summer. Regards, Rita.
You were recommended by a friend! Totally awesome place. We had 11 family members plenty of room with air mattressess. All I can say was Thank Goodness for the washer and dryer, that was a lifesaver. The short walk to the beach wasn't bad at all, shorter than I invisioned. Thanks for the great communication and for the lists of things to do around Destin. The house was equipped for everything you might need. I recommend coming around July 4th as the fireworks were spectacular right off the balcony. I would recommend this place. The owners were fabulous!

Thank you so much for sharing your condo and hospitality with us! The condo was very clean and nice! Nicely decorated too. The owners had ordered new couches right before our arrival and the pull-out bed was very comfortable! Although the condo isn't directly on the beach, it's only a short walk to paradise! We definitely enjoyed our stay. Thank you again!!

Overall Great Stay
Overall Great Stay
This condo is great. The walk to the beach is easy, and the owners gave us a really good discount, even though part of our stay was during peak spring break time. And allowed us to check in early! The kitchen is the best equipped kitchen of any condo I've ever stayed in, tupperware, a slow cooker, a hand mixer, steamers, baking pans, they have it all. The kids pool in the building next door was great for my 1 and 3 year old. And they have daily crafty activities. We did the paint a sand dollar which was $5 each. Most of the crafts were in the $5-$10 range. A few issues: the couch needs replacing, while it still looks pretty good/clean, the cushions cave in towards the middle making it uncomfortable to sit anywhere near the middle. Kitchen towels would be useful, we just used hand towels from the bathroom The caulk around the base of the master bedroom door is quite moldy. I think a quick bleach spray would probably take care of it. And it wasn't too bothersome to me, but might be for someone with allergies. The rug in the living room is curling up on the outside. I wouldn't normally mention this because it seems picky. But after my husband and kids tripping several times, I caught it with my foot and it ripped my toenail off, so I do think it's a bit of a hazard. Overall the location is great, and with a couple of minor fixes it would be perfect. I will definitely try to stay here if I get to visit Destin again. The beaches were the most beautiful I've ever seen!
