About Laura Brovold

We purchased this place as someplace to go in the winter and whenever we can get away. Our boys love the beach and the pool and all the things to do in Destin. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do!

Why Laura Brovold chose Destin

The view is amazing, and there is no road between you and the beach. Just go downstairs and walk onto the beach!

Beautiful Views, Great Location, Amazing Updated Condo that gave us the Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Laura and Chris have an amazing Condo! They are very prompt in their communication and had awesome recommendations for sites to see, things to do, & suggestions on where to eat!! As for the unit itself, the pictures don't even do it justice, it is beautifully decorated, and the beds & pillows are very comfortable! We were pleasantly surprised with the storage closet on the balcony that had everything we needed to take to the beach: cooler with wheels, sand toys, boogie boards, chairs that can be carried like back packs, etc. The property was easy to find, had great parking, and fast elevators. We flew in from Fort Walton Airport, and had a very easy drive to the condo even at 1am! Our first morning we went down to the café and got a great take out breakfast for the family. Once we got settled in, we were pleasantly surprised at all the options for shopping, as we preferred to cook most of our meals during our stay and took advantage of the grills provided by the property a few nights. I was really surprised that we never had to drive more than 5 minutes to pick up beer, food, or souvenirs, it was so amazing! We were lucky enough to enjoy the white sandy beach, both pools, the hot tub, and the water park across the street! My personal highlight was pouring my coffee, turning on the Bose stereo and looking out the patio door. The view is incredible, I felt like I was looking out a cruise ship window with breathtaking ocean views that seemed never ending. We couldn't believe how much the Condo felt like a home and was such a perfect place for our family. Couldn't have asked for a better stay, will return, and would highly recommend to anyone considering!!!

Spontaneous Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at this condo over Thanksgiving week. We decided only a few weeks earlier that we would give this trip a try, and drove down from MN. We were so impressed when we arrived by the beautiful condo and the amazing views! Laura and Chris have this space fully equipped for families of any size. Besides heading out for groceries, we didn't need to pick up any other supplies! The kids had a blast playing on the beach every day, and it was so convenient to have the storage room filled with beach toys and chairs, even towels! This location is amazing and the sand and water are perfection. We spent mornings walking the beach and collecting shells, and then the rest of the day swimming, boogie boarding, building castles and relaxing. Other than the hot tub, we didn't even use the two pools available, as the ocean was warm and calm. Visited some great restaurants in the area, and even made the trip to the Gulf View Zoo, which is a definite must if you have kids. We all can't wait to go back again, we definitely will be reserving this place in the future!

Beautiful condo, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a wonderful time in this condo. It is so beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything that we could possibly need. I enjoyed sitting out on the deck and watching the sun come up and the waves with my coffee in the morning. Loved having the 2 bathrooms so that the kids could have their own space and so could my husband and I.

The beach is sugary white sand and we would spend most of our day in the water or hanging out on the beach. The waves were just right for body surfing and to just bob around in.

Owners left a list of some wonderful restaurants. Our girls especially loved "The Cone" which is an ice cream shop very close to the condo. We "may" have been there quite a few times during our stay.

We will definitely be back to visit this great vacation condo!

Breathtaking view, amazing location and gorgeous condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Destin that was complimented by this well-located property. We thought of visiting San Diego or Texas but happened upon this listing and thought we’d explore somewhere new. Man, you didn’t disappoint! We have a toddler and the condo was big enough to keep him happy for a week. Lots of sand and pool toys, a pack n play and booster seat, and beautiful balcony to hang out on and watch the sunrise! We took advantage of the amazing November weather and warm gulf water and cooked fresh local fish and grilled out often. We felt like royals staying in this beautifully decorated condo. Must return, so much to see and do in the area, including amazing restaurants to experience! Thank you for opening your place to travelers and introducing us to the Emerald Coast!!

This condo was absolutely beautiful and perfect for my family!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Destin for our wedding and stayed in this beautiful condo! The balcony overlooks the ocean!! It was gorgeous! I've stayed in other units at Pelican and this one by far exceeds our expectations! Clean, very well taken care. Owners respond promptly with any questions. We will return! Perfect location to everything. The water park across the street, go karts, putt putt and lots of shopping and great food close by! We loved it and didn't want to leave. Angel H.
