This unit was purchased in November, 2015, and numerous improvements have been made and are ongoing.

We would love to have you as our guests and hope to see you on the beach!

About Teresa Calcote

We're from Ocean Springs, Mississippi, and have been visiting the area for many years. We decided to purchase the condo so that we can enjoy the area and all that it has to offer more often.

Teresa Calcote purchased this condo in 2014

Why Teresa Calcote chose Destin

We love this property because of all the amenities and its location on the beach and near restaurants/activities. This complex has three pools, one of which is an indoor/outdoor pool, workout center, sundeck, tiki bar, market deli, tennis courts, and grills by the pool.

What makes this condo unique

This property is located directly across the street from Big Kahuna's and there are a multitude of restaurants in every direction. Harbor Village is less than two miles to the east. Baytowne Village is about 5 miles to the East with additional activities, restaurants, and shops. Destin Commons is approximately two miles to the East and the outlet mall about 4 miles to the East. On site management open 24 hrs.

Ask about our other units which are directly on the beach and which sleeps 6.

4th of July at the Pelican Beach Resort

  • 4 of 5

My entire family had a great time at the Pelican Beach Resort and the condo was very clean and offered a great view of the pools and the Gulf. We would go back in a heart beat. However, I would most likely go back down on a none holiday week as the crowds on the beach were a little to much.

Trip was great but resort and rooms need work

  • 3 of 5

Elevator broken, toilet had to be repaired, blue ray had to be replaced, internet was terribly slow when it actually worked, tv wiring had to be redone by maintenance, and you can't set up your own beach chairs within 100 feet of the beach because of the chair rental the resort was running. The resort staff was great about fixing everything, but the unit owner showed little interest in our many complaints.

Owner's Response: Carrie, I'm sorry that you had such an unpleasant stay and felt I was uninterested. I tried to help with the TV problems over the phone, but since I live about 200 miles away, was unable to do so. The TV did not have to be re-wired nor did the DVD player have to be replaced. It was just a bad remote. I tried over the phone but could not help you and referred you to maintenance since they help install the system. The internet I have no control over. The resort is in the process of upgrading but it will be October when it is in place. When a lot of people are using the internet during busy times, it doesn't work as well. I apologize for the toilet as well, but again I have no control over when something like that happens and the toilet runs all night. The resort is very popular and, therefore, very busy in the summer. It has great amenities which draw lots of guests. I have never had a guest who didn't say that I wasn't exceptionally helpful. Pelican Beach Resort co-manages this unit and, therefore, their maintenance and support teams are responsible. Hope your next visit to Destin is a pleasant one. Teresa

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Destin. It is a beautiful beach! The condo was clean and the pools were well taken care of. There is a parking garage and it was so nice to get into a cool vehicle prior to going out for dinner. The only downside was not being able to use our canopy on the beach, and because we bought a small umbrella to use, we were only allowed to set it up behind the two rows of "rented" umbrellas. We weren't able to watch our kids playing in the surf when we needed the shade of the umbrella. Other than that, we had a great time.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope the unit was everything you hoped it would be. I know it is disappointing about the beach service, but it was put in place by the Board. I think a lot of the resorts are going to something like that. The owners can't sit there either unless they rent. I hope you will come back and stay with us again. We appreciate your staying with us. Teresa
