Property description

Welcome to our newly purchased and recently renovated penthouse condo. Located on the beachfront top (4th) floor of the Pelican building, you will have unsurpassed beach views. The apartment was completely renovated in 2012 by the previous owners and it offers a stunning new tile floor, kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances, a spacious bedroom suite with a beautiful king bed and en suite bathroom with walk-in porcelain shower. The spotless living area opens to a seaside balcony through sliding glass doors, and holds a queen sleeper sofa to accommodate two additional overnight guests. The balcony offers Lloyd Flanders lounge chairs for your complete relaxation while you watch and listen to the ocean’s surf, or enjoy a breakfast while watching a glorious sunrise over the waves.

Unlike most condos in the area, our Pelican unit is available off-season on a weekly basis as well as monthly. The unit rental comes complete with covered parking below the building for your convenience. The assigned parking space is immediately opposite the building’s elevator for easy access with shopping bundles or luggage. Just around the corner, behind the elevator and near the mailbox area, you will find luggage carriers and a grocery cart to help you bring your items up to the 4th floor where the apartment is located.

South Hutchinson Island is a beautiful barrier island paradise located on Florida's east coast, a few miles north of Jupiter. This portion of Florida's coastline is known as 'The Treasure Coast', and is located in both Martin County and St. Lucie County to the North. Martin County has successfully limited buildings on the island to no more than four stories and thus has no highrise or midrise buildings, unlike St. Lucie County. The Pelican condominium is sited on the 200 acre Indian River Plantation which contains several housing areas along with the premier Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort and Marina complex. The campus is located near the southern tip of Hutchinson Island and stretches across the island from the Indian River Lagoon to the west to the Atlantic Ocean to the east. The Marriott Resort boasts an executive 18-hole golf course, 13 tennis courts, fitness center, several pools and beach services which include beach umbrellas, towels and chairs. Although Pelican is not a part of Marriott, we have a Silver membership in Marriott’s Ocean Club which makes all the Marriott amenities available to our guests, some at an additional cost. Please note that the Silver Marriott membership will no longer be available after September 30, 2015. The renowned Marriott Sandpiper Resort facility is almost next door, which has a beachside Tiki bar for sandwiches or drinks. To facilitate your movements around the Marriott complex, a tram operates throughout the day.

For water enthusiasts there are almost too many available activities to mention. Swim, catch a wave or surf cast right at the condo, beachcomb for shells or perhaps find a gold or silver coin from one of the 11 Spanish treasure fleet galleons that wrecked along the coast here in 1715 in a hurricane (hence the name 'Treasure Coast' for this area of Florida's coastline). Snorkel on the reef at the beautiful Bathtub Beach only a mile to the south (check the on-line Bathtub Beach webcam for current conditions). Rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard and explore the adjacent Indian River Lagoon estuary while watching for the local manatees or dolphins. As many nearby attractions are within biking distance, you may want to bring your bicycles along. Sheltered storage for them is available in the parking garage below the building. The town of Stuart bills itself as the “sailfish capital of the world”, so book an offshore fishing charter from Stuart or Port Salerno. Rent your own boat or Jet Ski. Visit the local waterpark, Sailfish Splash, only a few miles distant.

For local color stroll through the historic downtown area of Stuart, lovingly revitalized with many restaurants, boutiques and shops. Bring a beach chair for free Sunday afternoon (in-season) concerts at the Stuart waterfront Riverwalk Park. Try a live performance at the charming Lyric Theatre in downtown Stuart. For more serious shoppers, the Treasure Coast Mall is a few miles north in Jensen Beach.

Museums and attractions in the immediate area include the Elliot Museum adjacent to the condo property. The museum has just been completely rebuilt and expanded, and its displays focus on art, history and technology. Named after prolific inventor Sterling Elliott, the museum houses permanent collections including Model AA Trucks, early transportation, history of Stuart and surrounding regions, baseball memorabilia. In addition, the Elliot hosts an art show in the fall and a car show in the spring, and has several dozen antique automobiles on permanent display. Immediately across the road from the Elliot is the Florida Oceanographic Society complex where you can hand feed stingrays, take a guided nature trail through the mangroves, or feed the hundreds of fish in the Game Fish Lagoon. Just to the south of the condo location is the historic Gilbert Bar House of Refuge, constructed in 1876 as a haven for shipwrecked sailors.

For longer daytrips, West Palm Beach is less than an hour away, and offers sightseeing, exclusive shopping and the wonderful Kravis Center for opera and other live performances. For exclusive shopping, visit Worth Street, known as the 'Rodeo Drive of the East', on Palm Beach Island. About two hours away is Orlando with its many theme parks, including Disney World, Universal and Sea World.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Originally New Yorkers, Rhea and Ted retired to Florida in 2005, but relocated to the Hilton Head area of South Carolina a little over a year ago. Missing the Florida weather, we very recently purchased our dream oceanfront condo for those times when we need a getaway back to the Florida surf sunshine. We would like to share it with others during the periods when we cannot put it to use ourselves.

Why Pelican Resort Villas:
We lived in a golf community in nearby Hobe Sound for many years, but we miss the Florida ambiance to which we had become accustomed. There is simply nothing like the Florida weather and oceanside living, and this Pelican property is among the finest to be offered on the Treasure Coast.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We searched many other properties for our return to Florida, but none could compare to this unit in the Pelican seaside condo for the serenity and beauty of the Hutchinson Island area.
