About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

One of the most common questions I receive relates to beach chairs. Please note that the Resorts of Pelican Beach does not have an annual program for owners to purchase. Current rates can be found on the resort website under "Amenities" at the top.

Excellent views and privacy abound in our premium 15th floor direct beachfront unit. Ocean views can be seen from the living room, dining area and kitchen as well as enjoyed from the balcony.

The pictures of the gorgeous views of the world famous emerald green waters and sugar white beaches were taken from the balcony of our unit.

Unlike many Destin resorts, there are no roads to cross to get to the beach. You just need to go down the elevator and walk down the boardwalk to the beach.

This non-smoking 1 bedroom, 2 bath unit is decorated in a bright, fun, beachy theme.

Unit sleeps 6 people. Master has king bed with television and private bath. Custom bunk beds in hallway with reading lights for the children. A queen sofa sleeper in living room with gorgeous gulf views through the sliding glass doors.

The kitchen has been recently updated with granite countertops and new fixtures. It comes equipped with a full size refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher and all utensils to prepare meals in the unit and to ensure a comfortable stay.

All linens and bath towels are provided. Coin operated washer/dryer available on each floor.

There is a 24 hour front desk to check you in and assist you with any questions or needs during your stay. We try to keep our unit in top shape to avoid any problems; however, if something should go wrong, there is an onsite maintenance team to quickly troubleshoot and repair.

Pelican Beach Resort is well recognized as a family resort with many amenities including a children’s recreation program during the summer peak season.

The resort has 2 pools (an Indoor/Outdoor Pool & Outdoor Pool with waterfall) plus a Kiddy Pool, Tiki Bar, Convenience Store, Fitness Center, Chair/Umbrella Beach Rental, Beach Front Hot Tub, BBQ Grills, Tennis Courts, Covered Parking and much more.

Restaurants, groceries, shopping are all within walking distance. A short drive gets you to movie theaters, golf, charter fishing, Destin harbor, boat rentals, entertainment and much more. Big Kahunas Water & Adventure Park is across the street.

Pelican Beach Rental Policies: The unit is non-smoking and requires a minimum age of 25. No pets are allowed.

Due to the popularity of the Pelican Beach Resort, the beach can get crowded during peak season. Beach chairs (2) and an umbrella (those seen in most pictures of the Emerald Coast) can be rented - the current cost is listed on the link Should you want more space to spread out, Henderson State Park ($6 per vehicle / per day) is a short drive away (2 miles east, near the Walmart) - be sure to bring your own chairs, umbrellas and snacks as there are no restaurants or rentals available.

USA Today readers recently picked The Emerald Coast as the #1 Beach in America. Southern Living readers have name it as the Best Beach in the South and Top Family Destination. Come and enjoy our Paradise.

About The Owner

We were born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. We have been married over 30 years and over 25 years ago, we drove to Destin for a vacation. Due to road construction, the drive took much longer than we anticipated and we arrived at 2am. We woke up the next morning to an amazingly beautiful beach and pure white sand. We had never seen anything like it. Many years later, we still love the water and have been to many islands and beaches, but nothing compares to Destin!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Florida North West

We purchased this property due to the amazing view and amenities. We later purchased 2 other properties which are also listed VRBO below. The Pelican Beach Rental Management program is excellent and they manage this property for us. Our other properties are also exceptional and are managed through an independent rental manager solely via VRBO. Each property has their own personality and amenities and we love them all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you for letting us see your unit. It is gorgious. Loved the decorating!

Very Cute, Clean, Great View--Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is lovely. It looks just like the pictures, was clean, and was more than enough room for my husband and me. We were able to use both showers at the same time with good water pressure and temperature. The bed is firm with comfy pillows, and the bedroom has thick curtains to cut out the light from the "hallway."

The only VERY slight downfall was we could hear people above opening and shutting doors and small feet running around. It didn't bother us much, and with the TV on in either the living room or bedroom you can't hear it at all.

We loved our stay and would stay here again!

Great Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great! Martha, the owner. helped me with a last minute trip and was done in 12 hours without any problems. She was so quick to respond. The condo was clean, decorated so cute and very accommodating. Loved the view and so close to shopping and food. The staff at pelican beach was very friendly and had beach chairs set up daily and walked right out on the beach. Couldn't have been a better trip. Thanks for sharing your condo. Will definitely recommend and come back

My husband, three children, and myself stayed in this beautiful condo. The pictures do not do it justice. The view from the living room/balcony is breathtaking. The owners were very pleasant and the staff at Pelican Beach were extremely friendly. Will definitely stay again!!
