Awesome place to stay!
"This was an awesome place to stay for the 3 of us. It had adequate space, a balcony that overlooked the ocean, the two bathrooms was a bonus, and super easy access to the beach! It was very comfortable and was like a home away from home. Well definitely stay here again on our next visit!"

"First off let me say, the walkway into the condo is not enclosed or indoors, it is open to the view of the parking lot and its surroundings. I almost got sick. Never been an issue for me before which is why I had no problem booking the place because it clearly states which floor you will be on, but this one got to me. Took some getting used to, just throwing that out there. The views from the room were beautiful. Very nice to be standing in the kitchen and be able to look out and see the ocean which seems to be never ending!The condo was very nice. Had everything we needed and more. Plenty of room. All beds were comfy, even the pull out couch in the living room!! Loved having 2 restrooms. Everything is located closely to the condo. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great AC unit. Loved the covered parking. We only used the outdoor pool which the kids loved, there is a restroom just inside the doors by the pool which was very handy. The Tiki Hut that has a bar is so convenient and the drinks were great, both adult and non-adult drinks. The kids loved the arcade, one child won a $300 pair of Beats by Dre headphones! They also had daily activities for the kids on site. One day we tie dyed shirts with the Pelican Beach logo on it! Now, the only negative for me was not dealing with the actual condo, but the beach in front. It is CROWDED! I am talking, like ducking under people's umbrellas just to find a way back to your chair, if you were lucky enough to find a place to put a chair that is. If you don't get down to the beach at around 5:30-6 am, you will not get a seat by the waters edge, PERIOD! The rental umbrella people take up the whole front row, I am talking almost to the edge of the water. It was the most ridiculous thing I had ever seen. We went down to rent an umbrella fairly early around 6:30-7am, we were able to get an umbrella but were told that it wouldn't be ready until 9am and they couldn't tell us what row we would be in. We ended up in the 3rd row and we couldn't even see the water through all the umbrellas and people in front of us. From that day on we set an early alarm and took our own chairs down around 5:30am and set them up in the front row before the rental place started their set up. No one bothered them at all and we were very much happy with our arrangement. I definitely suggest the early chair set up in order to fully enjoy the beach and especially if you have a child you wish to watch play in the ocean and relax."

"This condo was absolutely perfect for our Wedding, Honeymoon and our first trip to Florida. The room was Clean and the view was absolutely beautiful. The pictures in my opinion did not come close to what we seen when we stepped onto the balcony. To say we were pleased with this condo would be an understatement. So after I submit this review, we will be booking this room again for a family trip. :)"

"This was my family's first time in Destin. The resort was clean and this unit was nicely updated. The owner always responded to my emails quickly and was very easy to work with. The beach was always clean and water was beautiful. My family, however, was not keen on the amount of people on the small beach in July. We will probably not be back to this area, but this has no reflection on this unit or the owners. The process and condo could not have been better."
