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 Florida Main North West

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 view

  • 4 of 5

The view was wonderful! The balcony was very small with uncomfortable chairs. The condo was clean & the beds were very comfortable. There isn't a lot of storage for your own personal items, especially in the kitchen. The living room couch is very low to the ground & not very comfortable. There were only shear curtains on the sliding door, so no privacy at night if anyone is on the beach. The master bedroom is huge & quite nice. Room darkening drapes would be nice to have in both bedrooms. The master bath only has a jacuzzi tub (which is wonderful), but no shower, so bathing is a challenge. The guest bathroom could use more storage space for personal items. Overall, this is a nice property, and we would consider staying here again.

Beautiful Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great! Clean, nice! The beach was beautiful! Not too crowded- It is close to Destin, restaurants, shopping- but you are not in the middle of the awful traffic when you are just trying to go get groceries. Will stay again!

It was everything that we had hoped for! The view was spectacular, beaches were beautiful and we even moved my daughters wedding down to our beach because it was the the best on the island on that day. Everything that we needed to live for the week. I would go back today!

Just as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was perfect. Bunk beds good for grandkids. Beach was crowded, but having two beach chairs and umbrella provided was a real plus. Ocean had a lot of algae. Was told it happens every June. Great location close to Destin, but not in the Destin crowds and traffic. Enjoyed our stay except for the algae.

Well appointed condo rental

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Pelican Isle was relaxing. The overall complex is well taken care of. Our unit was as quiet as could be, unlike a noisy end unit our friends rented on the west end. We brought four teenage girls and surrendered the master bedroom over. It was spacious enough for a queen air mattress we brought along and each pair had their own sink. Worked out well - no fighting!

Really was impressed by the owner sending an entirely new coffee maker to our door within 5 minutes of my text about a MIA glass coffee pot.

I work in upscale home interiors, so I can tell you won't be disappointed with this clean rental.
