About Ella

Hi! We are Leo and Ella! We love to travel and enjoy quality time with our children and grandchildren. During winter, we ski the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, and the summers are spent on the beach. We love to meet fellow travelers (and especially gain new ski buddies). Additional favorite activities include cooking and entertaining.

Ella purchased this condo in 2016

Why Ella chose Destin

We visited Destin last fall and fell in love with white sand beaches and turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico! It's dolphin cruises, open-air shopping and fresh, local seafood restaurants! It's fun family vacations and a romantic spot for couples. That's how we found our perfect vacation home!

What makes this condo unique

The Gulf view from our balcony on the 9th floor is spectacular! We are right on the beach!

The decor of our condo is really beautiful! Interior design is my hobby, and I had a lot of fun remodeling our new vacation home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A wonderfully updated, and stylish condo directly on the beach. The building was safe and family friendly. We had a great time and I would recommend this property to other families.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our vacation. The condo was beautifully done. We could see both the pool and the ocean from our balcony, the master, and the living room. So many things to do at the resort and so much to offer in this area; just minutes away.

We alerted Ella, the owner, to one small issue in the bathroom and she had someone there that very day. Love, love, loved it !!!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As a long time traveler and a par taker of some fantastic vacations in my 41 years, I believe that I know a great one when I experience it...and that’s what the Pelican Beach Resort and Ella’s condo gave us. I understand that what is great for some is not so great for others. This was GREAT for the five of us! Un-pretentious, comfortable, super clean, beautiful and pristine beaches that allowed us to do exactly what we wanted, when we wanted to enjoy ourselves. I would recommend Ella’s home at Pelican Beach Resort to those who love swimming, fishing, sleeping, eating, breathing, and drinking...on your own time, at your own pace, and in one of the most beautiful beach front settings in the world! We will definitely be returning!

Beautiful condo, would definitely stay here again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at the Pelican Beach Resort. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The room looks bigger and even more beautiful in person. On the evening we arrived we noticed the sliding door in the master was broken so I emailed Ella to let her know, and it was fixed by 10am the next morning. We couldn’t think of one thing we didn’t love about staying here. We are already planning our next trip.

Luxury Beachfront Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family (with 2 children) had a wonderful vacation at this gorgeous renovated condo. Everything you could possibly need is available for you and if there is anything additional desired, all conveniences are a short drive away. The owners are easy to communicate with and It is clear that they take great care and pride of their unit. The views are specular and it is a short elevator ride away to the beach and pools. Should you wish to enjoy all that Destin has to offer, I highly recommend staying at this unit.

Great comfortable condo

  • 4 of 5

We loved the renovations in this condo! The decor is pretty and beachy. BUT it wasn’t perfect and we probably will not stay here again. I’ll start with the PROS- That view! Such an amazing beautiful view! Wonderful to be able to open the patio door from the master as well. Comfortable beds. We like our mattresses a little on the firmer side so they were perfect for us. Location. Perfect spot in Destin and close to everything. Heated pool. Nice since we had cooler weather. Beautiful condo. CONS- The kitchen has the bare minimum. It would be nice to have some plastic cups for drinks instead of having to bring multiples of your own. No paper towels (most condos have at least one roll to start you out). No dish soap (again common for most condos to have a small bottle). There are too many rules at Pelican Beach. I understand the need for some of the rules in place in order to keep the property safe and clean, but we felt restricted and not able to fully relax and enjoy our vacation. The wrist bands are super annoying. I have stayed at places with wrist bands in the past and they were not as strictly enforced as with this place. I have a nice tan line from it. It’s not like it’s all inclusive or anything... *The biggest problem for me, and the reason we will not stay here again is the limited beach space and the rules AGAIN on the beach. When I go to the beach, I bring my nice chairs and umbrella with me. I like to be able to see the water from my chair. I also expect to be able (and allowed) to sit with my chair near the water and read my book. You cannot do that here! The rental chairs get the front row and there are signs out saying you cannot go beyond this point. You are not allowed to sit with your chair near the water. The beach is also roped off with signs saying you cannot go beyond this point.. which is not for me at all. I can only imagine how packed that little square on the beach gets in the summer. We ended up just renting chairs on our last day (and spending more money) just so I could get the view and experience I came there for. We have rented many condos and houses all over the country but mostly on the Emerald Coast. And we have never stayed anywhere with so many rules. The condo itself is wonderful. Not so much Pelican Beach.

Owner's Response: Dear Melissa, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you loved the renovations in our condo, and that you found our condo being comfortable and pretty. We take pride in maintaining our vacation home updated with all new appliances, new furniture, new smart TVs, and in keeping our unit fresh, clean and welcoming. We regret that is was not perfect for you. You mentioned absence of initial start-up supply of paper towel roll and dish soap. Our management company supplies tablets for dishwasher, kitchen towels and rags. After I received your review, I asked our property manager if we could start supplying initial paper towel rolls and bottles of dish soap, and he said he would discuss it with the general manager and housekeeping, so it is under consideration. Our management company checks the inventory of our unit regularly, and plastic cups are not part of the inventory. We have a nice set of dishes that are not plastic. Our kitchen is also supplied with everything our guests may need for cooking and baking. The wrist bands were introduced and have been enforced for security purpose. Unfortunately, in the past, our resort had encountered unregistered and unauthorized guests who would use our beach and amenities, and violate house rules. Yes, our beach is not very big, but it is clean and beautiful.The Beach Service is there to make sure that everything is in order. My listing informs all potential renters that private chairs and umbrellas are allowed only behind the rows of Beach Rentals. Thank you again for staying with us. Ella.
