About Paul

We are Paul and Julie Pritchard. We both grew up in New Orleans and both graduated from the Univesity of New Orleans with degrees in Accounting. In 1981, we moved to the Atlanta area and have been living in Roswell, Georgia ever since. We have three children, two sons and one daughter. Although all three were born in Atlanta, they, like us, have grown up to be die-hard LSU fans.

We have been coming to Destin for many years and discovered the Pelican Beach Resort in 2003. We bought our two bedroom condo in 2004. Although most of our guests come to relax and unwind, we come and spend much of our time trying to find ways to make our condo more comfortable and enjoyable for our family and guests.

We hope that you will will visit with us and make a practice of coming back year after year as so many of our other guests have done.

Happy vacationing!

Paul and Julie

Paul purchased this condo in 2004

Why Paul chose Destin

For those who have visited Destin, I don't have to describe how beautiful the beaches and the harbor are. Our condo not only has georgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico, but also of the various other waterways that make Destin the boating captal of the Panhandle.

Be sure to check our website for more pictures and up-to-the minute availability.

Wonderful place excellent location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous trip and the resort was beautiful!!! Right on the beach just take the elevator down and walk out. The rooms in the condo are small but we didn't spend much time in them so that wasn't important to us!! Amazing views from the porch or the master bedroom. Lots of amenities including valet chair and umbrella service on the beach!! It was perfect we would definitely stay here again and again!!

Very clean, perfect location to everything, beach view is amazing

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Wed rt after we had been watching the activity of Hurricane Irma to see if it would be changing direction and going up towards Destin, the owners stayed in contact with me throughout and the staff at the front desk as well! They were very friendly and helpful! The condo you can tell is very well taken care of! Super clean, and smelled amazing not that musty hotel smell! It is taken care of with love! The location is perfect and the bed was sooooo comfortable! We r really gonna miss that!! Perfect fit for a family of 4-6! We will def stay again! Sept is a great time to go because it is not prime season so the crowds are not as crazy and traffic too. The weather is still warm and the water still feels good too!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation week! The condo is beautiful and has everything you need to make stay enjoyable. The views are breathtaking!

The condo is very clean and well maintained. The kitchen has all the basic amenities. The beds are all comfortable. Our kids loved the bunk beds! The condo was very spacious for our family of 4.

There is free covered parking which I suggest if can find a space it helps the car with not being so hot. There are carts in lobby to help with luggage, groceries etc which is nice being on the 20th floor.

The views from the balcony and up front of the bay are beautiful! If we were on the balcony watching the sunset we always had to go up front to see the bay too.

You can rent beach chairs for 2 and an umbrella it is $30. The tiki bar is awesome and all of the Pelican staff were nice!

Paul and Julie are very nice and a joy to work with! While staying at condo there was a bad storm and wifi was not working Paul answered immediately and it was fixed by time we returned to condo. Highly recommend and we would stay here again!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of two adults and 4 kids stayed here for a week and were very pleased with the condo. Descriptions and photos from the listing were accurate and we did not feel misled about any part of our stay. Unit was clean and well maintained with modern decor and appliances. We had three in the bunk room, and then also used the rollaway in the living area. The beds were very comfortable, AC worked great and it was easy to control the temp in the condo, and the building was not loud with other guests.

I was a little worried about having to take an elevator to/from the 20th floor every time we went down to the beach, but it was not bad at all. The elevators are fast and there are 5 of them, so we didn't have any issues with waiting to go up or down. The beach is maybe 50 steps from the elevator and you don't have to cross any streets. There's free covered parking, and carts available to use for taking groceries, luggage, etc. up to the condo. All the basic amenities were provided for the kitchen, and it was nice to have the washer & dryer although just be aware it is a small stackable unit, so don't plan on doing family loads of laundry in it.

The view from the balcony is gorgeous! The water at the beach was absolutely amazing during our sunny days there, it was like swimming in a pool. Prettiest water I've ever swam in. We had a couple of rainy days and that brought up some seaweed that made the water less clear, so just be aware that could happen, but that's true for any rental in Destin. The beach service that provides two chairs and an umbrella is nice, although $30 a day, and if you want to be in the front row you have to get out there pretty early (there aren't any beach chairs provided in the unit). It's not really a big deal to be not in the front though. We also rented a kayak from them which was very convenient. The beach didn't feel too crowded since it was only Pelican guests there. And the tiki bar right on the beach was a nice plus!

I only wish we could have brought our dogs, but otherwise I would definitely stay here again or feel confident renting any of Paul's other properties!

The condo was located in a great location...close to everything. The condo itself was clean and very functional, and well stocked. We spent the majority of the time at the beach, the pool and watching the dolphins from our balcony. Paul was very quick to respond. We would definitely stay again.

Thanks Paul
