About Gail Scarfino
My husband and I live in St. Louis, MO. We have two kids. We spent many summers vacationing in Destin and always preferred staying at Pelican Beach. When the opportunity came up to purchase our own condo we were thrilled. We love that other families enjoy staying in our condo for their vacation.

Affordable and Beautiful!!
We just returned from staying at Pelican Beach Resort. This is our second time staying here. Last year my husband and I got married there and this year we went for our anniversary and took the kids. The condo is very clean and comes with everything you need!! Wonderful views of the ocean. It is not facing directly towards the ocean but more than half of the view is of the ocean and the condo is directly on the beach. We are big on having a great view when we go to the beach and this one is great!! You will not find a better place for the price!!!
Not an oceanfront
The condo was very nice and clean. However, we were under the impression that it was "oceanfront." It is not. It has a view of the beach and ocean but not the beach directly behind the condo. The photos are deceiving. They used a zoom lens and it looks as if the condo is directly on the beach. It's a side condo overlooking the pool. Other than that, it was nice. We booked our room for next year through the condo itself before we left to make sure we had an oceanfront condo. They even let us look at it before we left.
We never lead anyone to believe it is directly ocean front. The photo's taken are not with any special lens, just with my phone. I zoomed in on one of the beach shots just to show the beach without the pool, etc. None of my other guest have ever voiced any confusion.
What it boils down to is the one bedroom are directly ocean front and the two bedroom are at an angle. Just depends which one you need.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We have travelled at Christmastime for 20+ years, and this was one of a very few places that we did not feel that we had to clean before we could stay there comfortably. The home was immaculate, and very comfortable. We appreciated the carpeting and soft, upholstered, reclining furniture, as compared to the usual Floridian tile and wicker furniture decor.
Although we mostly ate out, the kitchen was well-stocked with everything that we could have needed. Unit had both a bathtub and a nice walk-in shower unit to accommodate everyone's preferences. Our son appreciated the DVD/vhs combo unit and big screen tv. Beds were very comfortable too.
The weather didn't cooperate enough for us to use the balcony much, but the view from the
picture window of the beach and surf was outstanding. The owners were very helpful and answered many questions for us about the unit and rental procedures.
Destin was fun to explore, even in its "low season". If we ever return, we would gladly rent this unit again if available. :)
Best Condo Yet!
Our family of 5 vacations in Destin every summer....and this was the BEST condo at Pelican Beach that we've experienced. Just the right amount of comfort and class in this wonderful unit. We loved the carpeting...so much more comfortable than slick, sandy tile! Beach toys provided...and we added to the collection :) Teens loved the comfy recliners. Beautiful view of the beach and the pool! Excellent location off the elevators with great view of the Harbor from the front door. Highly recommend and can't wait to come back!
This was a great place to stay. Walking distance to beach was very short. Just right out the elevator and you were at the pool or beach. My teenage girls loved the deli for lunch. I would definitley stay in this unit again. It was very clean and nice. Each bedroom had its own bathroom. Washer & dryer in unit was a huge plus !
Would vacation here forever!
We stayed in the condo last year in late October, I believe probably the ONLY rainy week, yes week, ever seen in Destin. If not for the condo and comfort and close by activites .... and of course the heated pool and hot tub!!! Although the weather was cool, we had a blazing good time; thanks for great deal and cleanliness! The view of the sunrise and sunset was absolutely something I will never forget, just perfect.
