Pelican 501 is located at the very popular Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. This gorgeous 5th floor corner condo unit offers a king bed in the master bedroom, two twins in the bunk room and a queen sleeper in the living room. The unit includes two full baths.

We also own Pelican 508, a corner unit on the same floor as Pelican 501. Check out that listing at Inquire about discounts for booking both units!

Pelican 501, a corner unit, features lots of windows to enjoy the Florida sun as well as two balconies - one in the master bedroom and another off the living room which overlooks the lazy river and pool area.

Enjoy the waterfront view of the bay from your completely furnished kitchen. All of the kitchen utensils, dishes, pots and pans, etc., are supplied along with a full-size fridge/freezer, microwave, flat-top stove, oven and dishwasher. The eating area and the living room all have a view of the beautiful bay.

There is tile which has a distressed, wood-grain look throughout the unit (installed May 2015).

The unit features a dining bar with four barstools as well as a dining table that seats four.

 The living room includes a 40-inch flat screen television with cable and a Blu-Ray DVD player. The master bedroom also has its own 40-inch flat screen television, and there is a 19-inch flat screen television in the bunk room. There is FREE wireless internet service in the unit.

The bunk room has two comfortable twin mattresses and its own full bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower. The bunk room has its own door to provide privacy.

The unit also has its own washer/dryer for your use. An ironing board and iron are provided.

Relax on the large balcony while you watch the dolphins and rays swimming in the bay.

Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is a very popular destination. The famous lazy river shown in the pictures along with a separate pool with waterfall is located on the bay side of the property right outside your building. There are hot tubs and grills in the pool area for your use.

Use the elevated walkway to access the sugary white beaches on the Gulf side of the property. You also can use all of the pools and take advantage of the huge free form pool and other private pool on the beach side of the resort. 

The Ramada Inn is right across the street, and you are able to use the kiddie splash area, the free form grotto pool and the swim up bar. There are several on-site restaurants at the Ramada, including one poolside and an outdoor bar/restaurant overlooking the beach.

The Destin/Fort Walton Beach area has incredible dining, shopping and events! Fudpuckers, a popular restaurant, is right next door, and the Boardwalk - featuring multiple restaurants, shops and beachfront volleyball - is just across the street. The convention center and the Gulfarium are less than a quarter-mile away.

We welcome you to our finely appointed condominium to spend your vacation in paradise on the sugary, white-sand beaches and emerald waters of the Gulf Coast. Like so many, you will return year after year!

Fun for the family!

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the condo and all of the amenities of the resort! We came with 4 kids ranging from 18months-7 years old and the condo accommodated us well! I did not have to worry the whole time if my kids were going to break stuff in the condo, she had it safely and well appointed in a moms opinion. The kitchen had everything we needed for the couple meals a day we cooked there and the washer and dryer was very much appreciated!

The pools were so fun for the whole family as well as the splash pad and the beach was really nice, we picked up a few sea shells and got to watch some dolphins play!

If we go back to Destin we would stay here again :)

A great place, comfortable and in the middle of a lot of amenities and action!

  • 5 of 5

Pelican 501 was beautiful. Everything right there for a great family vacation. Cook your own meals if you want or go out and choose from dozens of restaurants within theee miles. The northern exposure of the condo deck made it very comfortable if you needed to get out of the sun for a while. The condo is on the end of the building, so it was very quiet at night. Beach chairs and wake boards were there to use along with a convenient cart to get to the beach. Two decks to relax on, one in the shade over the pool deck, one facing Southwest where you can watch the sunset. Dishwasher, washer, dryer two flatscreen TVs, microwave, stove and oven, refrigerator. Just like home, but with a great view and a world-class, sugar white sand beach across the street. Plenty of opportunities to go fishing. I did this each morning, caught a couple pompano, redfish and a catfish. We can't wait to go back!

clean and lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully decorated and clean. I love the owners thirty one bags she used to organize everything from pool bands to extra remotes. We had ample towels and little hand soaps. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook big breakfasts. It even had coffee filters which was nice. The view of the pools and water was beautiful. Sound from the pool was minimal with the door closed. Beds were comfortable. We got limited WiFi and only one channel on the tv (not sure if user error. We didn't terribly care because we brought movies but if you want more than the history channel, don't forget to pack some or do the red box at publix)

The heated pool was awesome. Wish the lazy river had been too but understandable considering the cost. The property was clean. Trash chute is right next to this condo. Made for easy clean up. We went to harborwalk in Destin before the boardwalk at the crab trap right down the street. Both have their charms. Harborwalk has a zip line, mirror maze, hamster wheels on water for the kids, all kinds of day boats. The mini boardwalk at the crab trap has a large playground on sand and a splash pad for toddlers. The burgers at ajs or als, can't remember the name, were great! Hand cut Cajun fries delicious! If you have little ones, bring your beach stuff there. Just hang out for the day. What a Godsend to be able to eat while the kids safely play. You can also get adult beverages that looked great. The food was better here than harborwalk anyway. The pier was packed with people fishing and we did see some cool fish on our walk. We also saw dolphins from the shore. Our kids loved the whole trip. We all left wishing we could stay longer. Definitely coming back and Linn is the person to rent from for a clean, comfortable family trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for letting us know about your stay, and I'm glad you to hear that your family had a great time!!! I did check with the guests staying after you, and they did not have any issues with the TV channels. We have 50+ channels (including two HBO channels). I'm guessing the cable might have been temporarily out due to an electrical storm or something like that. Thanks again for staying with us!

Great family Spring Vacation! Our boys loved the hot tubs, lazy river, and fishing off the pier!!

  • 5 of 5

Great family getaway. The bunks were perfect for our boys! We loved that the owners provide a beach wagon, chairs, sand toys, and wave boards! This was our first trip to the area but we are looking forward to returning. This condo has everything we needed for the comforts of home.
