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 have late August and 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.
Rita speaks English, Spanish and French.

We look forward to hearing from you!!
