How do YOU define your perfect vacation? The eternal sound of waves crashing on the beach from the comfort of your 15th floor balcony?

Don’t’ miss “the Quieter Side of the Island!”

This unit beckons with 2 bedrooms, two full baths, double sinks in each along with separate toilet areas and uniquely a half bath right off the living area for ease of access without entering a bedroom.

A brand new phone system allows you to automatically call in some of the area’s favorite restaurants for delivery or a quick pick up and eat-in experience. Little ones who have waded in the calm waters all day or built their sand castles may be ready for an early night’s rest.

About Tina Blanton

As a native of Corpus Christi, Texas I grew up on the water and the beach has always been an important part of my life. My husband and I and our two now grown children have been vacationing on the Gulf Coast their entire lives. Our extended family now owns property in Gulf Shores and the beautiful white sand beaches here are now our go-to beach destination. We hope you will experience the same thrill of the beach at Pelicans Porch.

Tina Blanton purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tina Blanton chose Gulf Shores

Sanibel condo building is one of the very few buildings situated between 2 bodies of water. The sparkling Gulf in front of the building and the calm waters of Little Lagoon located directly behind. Two great choices of water activities sure to please the most avid water enthusiast.

April Views

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark and too late to appreciate the vantage point this condo offers. After a good night’s sleep, we stepped out of the bedroom at sunrise and were greeted by the Gulf of Mexico in all its glory through the wall of windows. It's simply stunning and not to be missed.

The condo itself is very clean and comfortable. The appliances and other amenities are up to date and everything works. As we settled in, it became clear to us that the owners spend time here.

Parking is ample and the rest of the building is in good shape. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pelican’s Porch to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing stay. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and can’t wait to return!

Our Winter Stay 2017

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Gulf Shores for the past five years and this was our first stay at Pelican's Porch. We have moved from place to place, never finding that perfect condo. Well, this year we found a place to call home for the winter...we loved it here! From the moment we walked in, it felt very comfortable with new furniture throughout the condo. The view was awesome from the 15th floor. The condo manager and owner were wonderful to work with. We will be back for many years! John and June, Wisconsin
