About Bob & Sarah DePouw

We live in Ohio and we visited friends in Stuart this past 4th of July (2017) and totally fell in love with the community. Our friends immediately began trying to convince us to find a second home in the area. We realized the Ohio winters will continue to draw us to the Florida sun and beaches, so it really didn't take much convincing. When we walked into this property, we became completely enamored with what we call "The View at the Pelican". You will see it when you visit. You enter the door, walk towards the balcony and you just see the view of the ocean, it is absolutely beautiful, Blue Ocean, Rainbows and Full Moons. We knew this was the place for us. Bob works full-time in the yogurt industry and Sarah is semi-retired bettering the lives of individuals with development disabilities, this will be our getaway place. We love having such a great place to escape for a long weekend, when not rented. We hope our visitors enjoy the area as much as we do and enjoy sharing all the the places we have discovered. Thanks to Mark & Grace for the smooth transition.

Why Bob & Sarah DePouw chose Stuart

The Pelican Building is one of only a few oceanfront properties on Hutchinson Island that can be rented by the single month or for a week and is located within a full service resort community, Indian River Plantation. You can relax or keep as active as you want! Watch a sunrise (or moonrise) from your balcony or go to the many activities in the area. The location is are on the beach and still only a few minutes to downtown Stuart, Publix, Drugstores, Restaurants, etc......

What makes this condo unique

Our condo and the resort are located 0.6 mile from Publix, the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center and Elliott Museum. The beach, pool and Tiki bar (which serves lunch) are just outside your door. What attracted us to this area is that Stuart really is a small town with lots of activities and where you get to know the local people. We constantly encounter friends and acquaintances in the local shops and at activities. We are from "bigger" city environments, so if you miss the hustle and bustle of big city life, you are only 45 minutes from West Palm Beach, 60 minutes from Ft Lauderdale and 90 minutes from Miami. You can get your fix of the nightlife and then retreat back to Stuart.

Overall, a great choice for a quiet stay in a beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a nicely furnished, well-equipped unit steps away from a little boardwalk that goes over the dunes. The best feature is the beautiful ocean view, especially at sunrise. Spectacular! The unit is ideal for 1-2 people. We appreciated the beach supplies (chairs, umbrella, etc.). The location is ideal - close to restaurants and shops in Stuart, and just an hour from Palm Beach airport.

Great condo experience, very clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting this Condo and really enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and was in great condition. It had all of the amenities that we needed to make our stay comfortable and we had a great vacation. The ocean is steps away from the condo and the water was warm and clean. Great vacation place to stay!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything you need. We were there for week during spring training. Its close to all teams in the area. Close to many good restaurants a shops. And its on the beach. The washer / dryer is a plus ( don't have to bring a lot of clothes). Robert returns you emails quickly and cares how your stay is going. This is our second year staying in the condo. And its just couldn't get any better.

A Lovely Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at The View at the Pelican for the entire month of February. Bob and Sarah’s condo was just perfect for my husband and me. The king bed was comfy, plenty of towels, and everything we needed for cooking in the kitchen. I especially loved watching the sunrises from our patio and the view and sound of the ocean. The Pelican is located on the Indian River Plantation which is beautiful and gave us a feeling of living the month in a nice community as opposed to just renting a condo unit on the beach. Walking on the beach every morning became the way to start our day. The pool was very convenient and the other guests, many of whom were repeat renters, were friendly and welcoming. Thank you, Bob and Sarah, for sharing your “View” with us!

Good overall experience

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful view and well appointed property. Clean and comfortable. Recommend taking laundry unit out of the bedroom. Owners were very easy to work with and had good communication throughout my booking and stay.

Owner's Response: Linda - Thank You for your feedback and enjoying The View. We are evaluating options, but will probably be installing a barn door slider. This will still allow functional use of the closet and eliminate the view of the washer/dryer when not in use. Look forward to your next visit. Bob & Sarah - Owners
