"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 was an ok place. It's what anyone needs really for a beach vacation with just a few upgrades. The sliding door going out to the beach didn't have a lock so who ever stays in the lock out apartment is locked out if you are like us and would like to lock up at night before going to bed. The shower pressure is horrible!!! And the floors were really nasty. Your shoes stuck to the floors when you walked across them.. I had to wear shoes the entire time or feet would be black. The top master suite dryer unit took 3-4 cycles on the high heat setting just to dry your clothes. A new dryer is needed! Hate to be so negative and really just wanting to make the owner aware of these things so hopefully in the future they can be upgraded. probably not much can be done about the water pressure.. The location is wonderful!!! Beach is beautiful!"

"This was our family's first visit to Florida and after staying at this property on this amazingly beautiful beach it will not be our last! Can't imagine a more perfect accommodation than this property. It was absolutely gorgeous inside! Kitchen was fully equipped so did most of our meals there, and utilizing the dishwasher left us more time to spend on the beach. Very convenient location, close to stores and restaurants. There is a CVS about 1 minute away that had anything we needed, from sunblock to groceries. Loved sitting on the deck and watching the ocean while we ate our meals. Unit had a washer and dryer so we were able to take home clean clothes instead of dirty ones. We were there the first week of May and the weather was so perfect, as was the water. Cannot say enough good things about our vacation here. Looking forward to going back to the exact same place in the future!"

"Always a little nervous when we book for the first time at a location, but needn't have worried. Al gave us specific information ahead of time and answered all my questions about how private the beach was, etc, and he was spot on! We had full use of the beach in front of our condo, and made it from condo to beach in about 30 seconds flat, making it so easy to return to the condo for extras or to get off the beach for a little while. Everything was clean and neat and exactly as expected. We did contact Al once during the week, and he responded right away to our inquiry. The location was absolutely perfect, with no public access nearby, we really felt we had our space on the beach. There were umbrellas, and toys, and chairs available at the condo, which was a bonus! Only 15-20 minutes back into the heart of Destin, and anything we went to do: eat out, putt putt, water tours, etc., and of course plenty of places closer, like Pompano Joe's right up the beach. Loved that we were close to things but not on top of everything. Truly a relaxing vacation! There were 7 of us, ranging from 14 to 46, and we ALL loved it!"
