  • Perfect Family Vacation Spot

    "We just arrived home after our first stay at Pelican Haven and boy do we feel spoiled now! This was our family’s first trip down to Florida with our two children ages 5 & 1 and we can’t wait to plan our next vacation. We were looking for something close to the beach where we could easily walk with them back and forth for meals/naps/etc. and a nice clean beach and area to swim. This house was just perfect! Everything was just as pictured/described, clean & comfortable, smartly decorated, stocked with the essentials (and extras so you don't have to bring beach chairs/umbrella etc.). The owners even have a little “treasure chest” toy box that the kids Loved and helped out when we had some rain showers that kept us in. You can literally unpack, put on your suits, and head to the beach! The beach is an easy block walk (you do cross one semi-busy street, so kids can't go alone) to beautiful white sand beach. The water was warm and we all had fun collecting shells, splashing/swimming in the water, and building sand castles. We saw a variety of animals….crabs in the morning digging out their holes (even caught a little one briefly), several types of beach birds including a beautiful large Egret who likes to hang out behind the fishermen down the beach, pelicans diving for fish, little clams that my 5 yr old kept in a pail to watch, and one day even saw a group of dolphins as they passed by out in the bay. The backyard is fenced with a nice screened in porch and an outdoor shower great for rinsing off, but not connected directly to the house. We drove the short 5 min to Mexico beach a couple of times to eat out. The whole area/trip was low-key, easy and relaxing. The owners were wonderful to work with and we are so grateful they have shared their home with our family."

  • Women's week at the beach

    "Four women, a full week, absolutely perfect getaway. This house (we only used half) is ideal for a great carefree vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed being in an immaculate house with enough room for us to have privacy as well as room to be together whenever we chose. The beach is right outside the back door - nothing between you and the sand. The large double porches, one up and one down, with rocking chairs for all were ideal for watching the sunset over the gulf. The nearest houses are just far enough away that it feels like you have the beach to yourself. And the beach is pristine. Beautiful white sand, amazingly clear water, and some great dolphin watching was there for us daily. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cookware, utensils, plates, glasses, etc. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are modern with ceramic tile showers. The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage. All in all, I would say this beach house leaves little to be desired. I definitely will come again. The location is wonderful, too, as day trips to Apalachiacola and Wewahitchka were only a few miles away. We scored some fun shopping and a bit of Tupelo honey. Most days we couldn't bear to leave the beach. Also, there are enough delightful rustic seafood restaurants nearby that we never had to worry about where to go for dinner. Thank you so much for the perfect getaway."

  • Fantastic place to stay!

    "We just stayed here from May 14th-May 19th and enjoyed our stay so much! My husband and I, my daughter and her husband and my 2 year old grandson all had a great time. The house was extremely comfortable and had everything you could possibly need as far as kitchen utensils and plenty of towels...just need to bring your beach towels. It was just a short distance to walk across the street to the beach and we left our fold out chairs on the beach for two nights and they were right where we left them when we went back. The pool is right behind the house and was very nice and clean. My grandson loved the bunk beds and called that his room and all of the beds were comfortable as well. We enjoyed sitting on the deck looking at the ocean and it is equipped with very nice outdoor furniture. We enjoyed grilling on the charcoal grill and there is also a gas grill. We have stayed at places where if everybody is taking a shower the hot water would run out before everyone could bathe but we had plenty of hot water. The layout of the house is perfect and it is beautifully decorated. The outdoor shower is a big plus too and the clothes line for hanging out your wet clothes. I would highly recommend Laughling Dolphin as a great place to stay and we will be coming back!"

  • Workcation

    "This was my first trip to this part of Florida as I had some work to do near the Tyndall AFB for a couple of weeks. The house was very neat and well set up for a group and family. The walk to the beach is very short and is very private due to the fact that next door homes are over 100 yards away. The view out over the water is very nice, especially in the evenings. The water is relatively calm and was perfect for my 9 month old daughter's first experience with the ocean. There are some great attractions and historical places within short driving distances. There are great grocery shopping options as well as some great dining areas very close by. I had the privilege of meeting the owners of the house and they are extremely nice and flexible. Thank you for the wonderful workcation experience for me and my family at the Gibson Duplex."
