About Brent Elrod

I founded BPW Enterprises, Inc to purchase this condo. I love the beach and wanted a place for my family to call our own. This was a family affair and we sold the family farm to fund this unit, literally! The moment we laid eyes on #511 we knew it was the unit for us. We shopped condos from Pensacola to Panama City but nothing compares to this location.

I am a retired veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and proud member of the Disabled American Veterans, so if you are a current or vet member of the services let me know. I always try and help out my fellow vets.

Brent Elrod purchased this condo in 2010

Why Brent Elrod chose Ft Walton Beach

We wanted to be close enough to Destin and its shopping and dining but not so close as to be caught up in all the crowds. Pelican Isle has been perfect! It is about 5-7 miles to Destin and with AJ's Oyster Shanty, Ole Bay Steampot, The Crab Trap, ROCKIN' TACOS (my fav) and Fudpuckers all less than 2 miles away we feel we are perfectly located.

What makes this condo unique

Pelican Isle has a beautiful stretch of beach and once you step out of the building you are literally only feet away from the sand. I most enjoy sitting on the balcony soaking in the views and feeling the gulf wind. The fact that the beach is wide and even during holidays doesn't seem crowded is one of the things I like the most. With our free beach chair set up you don't even have to drag your chair and umbrella across the beach! Then, when the sun goes down it is just about a half mile down to Fudpuckers or the Steampot for a great dinner and some amazing drinks!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Brent,

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our week at Pelican Isle. Thank you for providing the beach chairs and umbrella as part of our stay. It was great to not have to worry about lugging chairs and umbrellas back and forth every day. As far as the condo itself, we loved it! We hope to be able to get back to Fort Walton again next summer and will definitely look for this unit to be available again! The beds were very comfortable and we felt you had paid extra care in that comfort was important to your renters. So again, what a great unit and we are so happy with how everything went we hope to be able visit again soon.

Take Care,


Nikki sent this review directly to me along with a request for the same week next summer! We love all the return guests.

Beautiful condo with beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, best friend & her husband & I went for Friday-Monday for a kids-free weekend getaway. We were planning on arriving early & the owner was very kind & helpful with arranging for us to do so. He worked with us& answered any questions or concerns I had. We did notice that the sliding glass door was extremely hard to open & close & would come off the track, but I messaged him & told him about to problem & he promptly emailed me back saying he didn’t know if he could get someone out to fix it- but I let him know it wasn’t a huge deal, more of an inconvenience. We loved our stay & I wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely be staying again in the future.

great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Loved the condo, great view, spacious rooms and great amenities! Need to bring items like dish soap, dishwasher soap, hand soap, toilet paper and trash bags. Take care with bunk bed ladder, it's not attached so will fall off. Had a couple issues and they were being fixed within an hour of notifying owner, Definitely loved our stay!

Serene and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was exactly as described. We arrived to a very clean condo with everything we needed. The owner replies very quickly and meets any need you have! My group and I were looking for a relaxing spot on the Gulf away from the louder and more rambunctious scenes, and this spot is PERFECT! Far enough away from the crowd but close enough to the tourist attractions and delicious food. Overall, I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing time with access to all sorts of fun right outside your door step!
