About the Property

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

Please note that I am on vacation until Feb 16 with limited internet and phone. If you want immediate assistance, please contact my rental management company at 850-654-1425 and ask for unit 1505.

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. Other rental policies can be found at:

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.

There are 2 ways to book and pay for our unit:

1) Use the "Send email" under the button "Request to Book" and provide the name, address and phone number you would like the reservation under.  I will call in the rate to my rental management company who will provide a confirmation number.   After you receive the confirmation number, you will need to call in your credit card number (1-888-735-4226) and let me know when this has been completed.

A $200 deposit is charged at booking and the remaining payment is due at checkin.

2) If you prefer to use VRBO's Book It Now and pay through VRBO, select the dates you want to book and click "Request to Book". I will check to make sure my rental management company has not already booked my unit and "Accept" the booking request. You will be charged the VRBO booking fee immediately upon my accepting and will receive a payment request for the rental which is due immediately. After you pay VRBO and VRBO pays me, I will remit payment to my rental management company so that my rental management company can pay all taxes, cleaning and other expenses.

Please note that I try to respond via email as quickly as possible. If you have questions or would like to book via phone, my rental manager can be reached at 1-888-735-4226 (refer to unit 1505, owner booking code a1053 and request the best special available including the past guest discount.)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

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!

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
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.
