Welcome to Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort #307 - your home away from home!
We offer secure booking and payment through VRBO/Home Away, but we are always an available to help with anything you need!
This is by far the best location in Destin and we do EVERYTHING we can to make sure our guests love their time in our condo.
A vacation in Destin is the perfect way to spend time with the family in a friendly environment. We are filling up for summer so book now! We also have September open, pick the best weeks as soon as you are able.
Our tastefully decorated condo has a large kitchen, 3 FULL SIZED bedrooms (no bunk room) and 3 FULL baths, covering 1400 square feet. There are two master suites with private baths, and a third bathroom for use by the third bedroom and other occupants. We also have a sleeper sofa for the extra kids and play yard type crib, making the capacity of the unit 8 (6 adults maximum please) people plus baby, large enough for your extended family or even two families!
Enjoy our large, fully accessorized kitchen with all standard appliances plus microwave, blender, coffee maker and toaster. The adjacent dining area has a capacity for 8 people. We have a washer and dryer in the unit for your use as well. Our home is decorated in light colors which we think makes it happy! The master suite has a private door out onto the large wrap around main balcony, a king size bed with a memory foam topper, dressing area & private bath. The middle bedroom has twin beds with memory foam toppers adjacent to the hall bath. The 2nd master suite has a comfortable queen size bed with memory foam topper, and a private balcony. This is a fully accessorized suite with a wet bar, small refrigerator, microwave and separate climate controls. We have a play yard type crib for our little guests as well. All bedrooms have comfortable carpet, so there will be no cold, hard floors meeting your feet in the morning.
The living room is detailed with a 37" flat screen TV and DVD player, the master suite has a 32" flat screen TV with DVD, the second master suite has a 24" flat screen TV and the kids' room also has a 21" flat screen TV (4 TVs total!). Bring your laptop or tablet, as we have wireless high speed internet, and of course, local phone service.
The unit is conveniently located on the third floor, high enough to enjoy the view, but low enough to get you in and out quickly. Our unit is located on the beach side of the building (an important benefit as some 3/3 units are on the street side) so you can enjoy views of the ocean & see vistas of the lakes, fountain & picturesque bridge crossing in front of you from our wrap around balcony. If your kids are old enough to be at the pool alone, you can still watch them swim from the balcony. We are 250 - 300 yards from the beach via a dedicated boardwalk with no streets to cross, you never leave the property. The walk takes about 3 minutes or in the summer the golf cart style shuttle takes less than 30 seconds. Why pay $1000 more per week for a similar condominium directly on the beach? We can certainly think of better ways to spend that additional $1000!!!!!!
All amenities available at Pelican Beach Resort are at your disposal. The Terrace building has its own pool, hot tub, gas grills and exercise center, but as our guest, you may also use the two pools at the Pelican building, hot tub, baby pool, tennis courts, exercise center and sun deck, or enjoy a snack at the Market Cafe or a drink at the beach front Tiki Bar (both open seasonally - March through September). Kids can participate in the spring and summer Kid's Club activities. All of the pools are heated in fall, winter and spring, so swimming is available anytime! And of course, there is the beach, consistently voted one of Florida's best beaches. Enjoy the powder white sand between your toes, crystal green warm water and have fun, fun, fun!
Concerned about the busy vacation season? Don't be, we have many local professionals that we use to address any needs you may have. The Pelican Beach Resort also has a guarded entrance with manned security seasonally. Different colored flags are flown on the beach daily indicating the condition of the Gulf (this is very important). Our unit has a coded digital lock and we will personalize an entry code for you, no worrying about shared keys (or losing keys) or unauthorized access.
Stay with us during the 4th of July holiday as thanks to the wrap around balcony, on a clear night you can see fireworks in all directions. Same for New Year's but fewer people and pleasant weather, it can't be beat.
We will do everything we can to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions or would like more details about the condominium or location. We have many local people at our disposal, but we self manage this unit, and pass on the savings to you.
We do not require you to buy Travel Damage insurance from a third party but do collect a loss damage waiver fee (our way of self insurance) for accidents - it's cheaper for you and better for us! The cleaning fee we charge is exactly what our cleaner charges us, and of course, we have to collect taxes, same as a hotel. We don't charge reservation fees, administrative fees or have other hidden costs, what you see here and on the rate schedule is what we charge (subject to VRBO fees which we don't get!!).
Not only do we rent this condominium, but we use it ourselves 4 to 5 times per year, insuring it is in top condition for our guests.

About Ken and Rita
Hello and thank you again for considering our condo for your Destin vacation! We are not agents, this is our personal condo and we are real people just like you who love Destin. We started as vacation renters ourselves, and loved NW Florida so much we decided we wanted more, so we bought this condo. It is the only one we have, and believe me, one is all you need when you are happy with it! We never get tired of Destin and it never gets old. We are a family of four from Houston, Texas, and we routinely make the drive over to Destin as we spend all of our vacations there too! Since we use the condo ourselves, we personally make sure it is in top shape for our guests. We'd love to have you come stay with us in our very own home away from home. We traveled to Destin as children, and the memories are still fresh in our mind. We bought our condominium here so we could give our children the same memories, and invite you to enjoy this experience with your family! Thanks again and we hope you enjoy Destin (whether at our place or somewhere else) as much as we do!
Ken and Rita purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Ken and Rita chose Destin
We chose this particular location because like most, we wanted to have everything close by if we needed it, but also be in a place where we could do nothing. The Beach is on our property! Big Kahuna Water Park (open in summer) is right across the street. If you can walk a little, the Track entertainment center with go karts, game room, and miniature golf is just down the road. However, we do recommend a car because there is so much more in Destin and the surrounding area that you really should not miss. Almost every type of restaurant is within a few miles of our condo. There is so much selection we still have not been to them all ourselves. There is a Miller's Ale House, Outback, Joe's Crab Shack, Fudpuckers (not Fuddruckers), Olive Garden, Osaka, Hooters, Applebee's, Carrabba's and Ruth's Chris just to name a few chains, and then many, many seafood and beach style restaurants. Also, Emeril Lagasse lives in the Destin area (and you might even be fortunate enough to see him, we were). He is opening an Emeril's in Grand Boulevard in Sandestin, just a few miles to the east.
What makes this Condo unique
Destin is the perfect mix of activity and relaxation with something for everyone. And you know what they say, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort is located in the heart of Destin, close to shopping, many restaurants, and activities including golf, fishing, parasailing, dolphin cruises, diving, Big Kahuna's Water Theme Park (open in summer), the Track Theme Park and miniature golf and the Destin Harbor. Destin Commons, our local shopping district with trendy shops, restaurants, bars and a Cinemark theater is just a few miles down the road, and the Silver Sands Outlet Shops, with every name brand imaginable, are just a short distance farther!

We loved everything about it. The condo was perfect. Very clean, beautiful view and ideal weather!!!
My husband and I and our daughter with her 5 children enjoyed ourselves immensely the week we stayed at our condo in Destin. We loved walking to the beach with the gorgeous white sand between our toes and getting splashed by the large waves washing up on shore. After awhile we’d walk over to the tiki bar for a cool drink and just sit and relax watching pelicans fly by. In the evening we would go eat at some fun places that served delicious food plus had a wait staff that exceeded our expectations!!! Everyone we dealt with was just so nice. The people at the gift shops were very helpful and friendly as well. We would definitely like to return next year and stay at the same place we were at this year. We’ve been to Orlando, Clearwater Beach and Cocoa Beach before but never Destin. We all are very impressed by it and would love to return and stay longer.
It sounds like saw all of the best of Destin. That is why we love it too, not just the condo and the beach, but the entire friendly environment. Glad you enjoyed, all the best!
Our condo was just as advertised - just perfect! It was clean, well stocked and everything worked. There was only one issue: no coffee filters. But that will not be a problem for future renters because we left a large package. Owners were exceptionally informative on the details so there were not glitches. Would highly recommend this unit, especially if you want worry-free.
Doroles, we are glad you enjoyed the time in the condo and thank you for the courtesy! We try to leave consumable items such as coffee filters, etc. but often they get discarded by guests when they straighten up before they leave (plus some poeple like to buy their own fresh). Our cleaning people do leave soaps and small cleaning and bath items to start and fortunately, there are many stores, restaurants and other attractions close by to meet every need. We wish you a happy holiday and new year and hope to hear from you again!
The property was great!!!
Everything about our stay was great. The condo is very beautiful, and so much room. We had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again!
We're so glad you enjoyed your time in Destin! When we bought this condo the idea was to get as much space as we could for the value. The 3 bedroom 3 bath layout seems to work for everyone whether a large or small group, even us as we use the condo ourselves. Thank you again for choosing our condo!
We stayed in this condo for our beach vacation. This condo was clean and beautiful. The beds were very comfortable. We had great views. We had access to the amenities at this condo and the resort that was in the same parking lot. The walk to the beach was very short. Restuarants and stores are in the area, some within walking distance. I recommend this rental and would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great stay!
We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Destin and in the condo and thank you again for choosing us for your late spring vacation. It sounds like you made good use of the pools (in our building and the front building) and beach, and also the attractions close by. We love the location and chose the condo for that particular reason - close to everything but also relaxing. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Spent 9 weeks at this wonderful condo! It is spacious, clean, well appointed. The location is wonderful with many restaurants and stores within walking distance, and even more within driving distance. The beach is a 4 minute walk without any streets to cross ... with chairs, umbrellas and even beach toys provided by the gracious host and hostess. The amenities (pool, fitness & hot tub) are clean and in great working order. There are plenty of places to walk around the neighbourhood. If you are there during the "busy" season, the Big Kahuna, and a mini golf course, are located across the street from the complex. Consider this accommodation the next time you are looking for a safe, clean place to take your family to, or just retreat to as a couple.
We are happy you enjoyed your winter vacation and thank you again for staying with us! We are always happy to provide our northern friends a respite from the snow and ice. We're glad the location suited you, we love it too, right in the middle of everything! Best wishes for the rest of the year. Ken and Rita
