Another Excellent Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in Pelican 504 for the FUDS volleyball tournament and again it was another lucky year for us. My husband's team placed 2nd in Men's 4's BB and we even had the rest of the team staying next door in Pelican 503. The apartment was clean, well furnished and has an amazing view... we even had one dreary night when we stayed in, sat on the balcony, drank wine, and played "Trouble" and had a blast even though a couple of the pieces were missing =) We almost bought another board game for the condo - such a good idea to have those options there. Can't wait to go back again.

Relaxing Vacation at this Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the Destin area, and we were very happy with this lovely condo. This unit is subtly and tastefully decorated. We loved cooking in the kitchen, which was very well-equipped. There was no shortage of cleaning supplies. Jill and Jerry, the gracious hosts, also supplied soaps, towels, and beach toys - a really nice touch.

Our favorite kid-friendly activities (already well-documented, but listed anyway) - the lazy river, mini-golf at Adventure Zone, strolling around Destin Harbor, stand-up paddle boarding, and DEFINITELY eat at Dewey Destin!

Mele Kalikimaka on repeat all week!

  • 5 of 5

When we decided to take our kids on a trip to Destin in lieu of gifts for Christmas this year, I knew it had better be a good time! Well, this condo and resort did not disappoint. My kids (a boy and girl ages 11 and 14) loved the little bunk room. It was great to also have the bathroom right by their area so that they could have privacy. The tv in that are was perfect and gave them a place to have some down time. My husband and I were pleased with our master bedroom and bath.

The kitchen was well stocked and even had many items not typically provided in a rental: dishwashing detergent, paper towels, garbage bags, extra towels, etc. We try to keep meals simple while on vacation and only eat out a few times so the kitchen is an important feature to us and we we impressed.

We didn't know what to expect with the weather late in December and somehow we got lucky! The week we stayed was between 70-75 degrees. We used the heated pool daily, the hot tubs were awesome, and even had a great time in the lazy river (not heated) doing polar plunge challenges.

Several days during our trip were spent on the beach. The walkway was an easy path to get to the ocean. The back bedroom closet had many beach toys, nets, boogie boards, a beach chair and umbrella, as well as a very nice beach cart to help carry everything. We took our own wet suits because we love to be in the water, even if its chilly, and they were perfect with the boogie boards!

During our stay we also enjoyed the Topsail Hill Park, The Village of Baytowne Wharf, Harborwalk Village, and lastly, the little town of Seaside. I cannot say enough about Seaside! So adorable and worth the drive. Next time we come we don't want to miss Crab Island with a pontoon rental but for that we will have to come in the warmer months.

Jill was a great hostess and excellent to work with. Can't wait to plan our next beach vacation!

Awesome Condo with Great Amenities

  • 5 of 5

The condo was as great as advertised. It was very clean and well maintained. We have never stayed in a condo or house that was better supplied with all the necessities such as towels, soap, toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, dishwashing detergent and liquid, laundry detergent. It was amazing. There were games for kids, books, magazines. There was even a wagon to haul all your "stuff" to the beach and lots of things for kids to use at the beach. We really enjoyed the lazy river and sitting on the balcony overlooking the pools and the bay. Our favorite place to eat was The Back Porch. The food and service was awesome! We would definitely recommend this condo to friends.
