About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located directly on the beach at the very popular Pelican Beach Resort right in the heart of beautiful Destin. This non-smoking two bedroom/two bathroom condo was beautifully renovated in late 2011 with a brand new kitchen and with high quality new furniture added throughout including a big 42" diagonal Flat Screen TV with a DVD player! The condo has a highspeed wireless internet connection so you can surf the internet while sitting on the balcony watching the beautiful Gulf of Mexico shine!Both the master and guest bedrooms are also fitted with flat panel TV's with built in DVD players. Our condo is beautifully decorated and very well maintained so you can be sure of a very comfortable vacation stay! This unit is located on the 19th floor and comes complete with an absolutely stunning view of the beach and lagoon style pool from the full length balcony and of the Destin Harbor from the front door! This upscale resort is ideally suited to families with a beautiful lagoon pool, kids pool, gulf front hot tub and an additional indoor/outdoor pool.

The property also boasts; beach service, huge sunning deck, exercise room, steam room, sauna, convenience store, delicatessen and a beachside bar. The property is close to many excellent restaurants via either a short walk or short drive, local attractions such as theme parks, mini golf and go-carts. The shopping is beyond belief with the USA's largest designer outlet mall only ten minutes away with other major shopping areas even closer.

This is truly a family destination resort with more than enough activities available to keep everyone entertained for a week or more. The Destin weather and the powdered sugar like sand will make for an excellent vacation experience!

*** Please note that I own a second and identical unit at this resort on the 4th floor on VRBO#260317 which has additional photos. This information may be helpful to you in deciding to book either condo for your vacation!!

Extremely bad experience

  • 1 of 5

When we walk in, the smell in the whole apartment was unbearable. The smell was so rotten that we requested help from the front desk. They offered to change us to another apartment but with an extra charge. We could not accept it.

They did spray that night, but was not enough to clear it. The next day they used an ozone equipment. We had to buy Lysol spray and apply it. However, it took four days to get back to normal. In summary, it was a very bad experience and the worst we ever had.

Owner's Response: Hi Jost, I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience in the condo. I would have liked to have heard from you once you had arrived and realized the issue as opposed to after you had departed. I could have facilitated having you moved at no additional cost but to do so I needed to be aware of the issue. I believe that the cause of the problem was that we had just replaced the laminate counters in the kitchen with brand new granite counters to upgrade the condo. The contractor that did the renovation was late to complete the job and he finished the morning of your arrival. I assume that the epoxy or whatever glue they used was the cause of the odor. My snowbird guest that arrived 12/27 loved the condo so obviously the odor had dissipated. Once again I apologize for the issue with your stay and I wish you had contacted me when you arrived and realized that there was an issue. Cheers, Mike

Beautiful panoramic View of Destin!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo for three nights in September of 2017. The views from the balcony and front door are spectacular. Of course, we had a full moon, which made it even more beautiful. The property is well maintained and there are 4 elevators for your convenience. Easy moving from beach to condo. All appliances and facilities were in great working order.

Great location. Beautiful beach. I recommend The Back Porch which is a mile or so away for dining.

Beautiful Views and Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed August 12th to the 20th, 2017

From North Bay, Ontario, Canada

Can you say "A Little Piece of Heaven?" Absolutely no surprizes-basically what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get when you arrive! The view of the Emerald Coastline is incredible! The location of this condo is centrally located along Hyw. 98 with a Winn Dixie, Walmart, and Publix grocery store close by. Fully equipped kitchen with ice maker in the refrigerator 's freezer, assortment of pots and pans, fully stocked cupboards of glasses, plates, bowls, (just like our kitchen at home). The condo is very clean and quite spacious-we were a family of four and always felt like we had tons of room. This was our first time to Destin and the beach, sand, and ocean are amazing! There's tons to see and do-from shopping at Ross's to parasailing or heading down to the harbour walk for fireworks. The pool is clean and gets afternoon shade, which was a great option. Live music at the beach bar was fun especially sitting in the hot tub listening to some great tunes. Four gas BBQ's to cook on! We went to Sexton's Fresh Seafood market and bought freshly caught grouper and jumbo shrimp and cooked it on the BBQ at the resort-so good! At night, the beach came to life with light-up freebees and LED sky rockets-really fun to watch so bring a flashlight and some light-up toys if you're bringing children (they'll love it-ours did). Mike, the owner, is awesome and very easy to communicate with via email. Don't hesitate to come to Destin and stay will not be disappointed!

Seriously, we can't wait to return, Michael, Collie, Jack and William.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean, supplied with towels, kitchen equipment, and amazing views. It was super cozy and was perfect for our group of 5. The property is in a great location and we found the staff friendly and always willing to offer any assistance needed. The pool is a great aminity, but the beach is AMAZING! We can't wait to return.

Very nice condo with excellent views and near everything we wanted to visit! We loved the resort !

  • 5 of 5

FIRST trip (emphasis on FIRST) to Destin and The Pelican Beach Resort ! Visited with my husband and 2 daughters, soon to be 15 and 11, and we all fell in love and plan to return here as soon as we can. The condo was very nice and we loved the views and the location, esp being right across from the Water park my younger daughter just had to visit. The owner accomodated a special request and I'm so appreciative of that ! Even my husband, more of a "woodsy," hiking kind of guy, loved the beach and shared our sadness when leaving for home in the Buckeye State 😊?. The resort itself is beautiful with very friendly staff and we loved the pools, cafe, live music, and the many friendly guests we met who shared that they been to the resort many years and have always had a great experience as did we. I've been to Siesta Key Beach (which is AMAZING, too) and the 4 of us went to Myrtle Beach in 2010 and there simply is no comparison! The water and the beach in Destin are way better than MB and we chose Destin over Sarasota for less travel and more kid/family -friendly reviews which I found to be true ! We look forward to many more trips to Destin and PBR !
