About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hello and welcome to our colorful condo!

Our peaceful and inviting nautical condominium is perfect for an amazing beach vacation. With a great location on the surreal Emerald Coast, a 700 foot Lazy River, you are sure to come back year after year. This unit is a groundfloor unit/lanai where guests can sun or step outside the gate into the lazy river with a gorgeous bayside backdrop. The waterfall pool, gradual entry pool, and two large hot tubs provide a variety of activities for water lovers. The patio/sunning decks in this water area provide both shade and sun for people of all ages. Large lounge chairs, tables & chairs, umbrellas are provided for your leisurely days spent by the lazy river. Grills w/ tables are provided in the green areas as well as a walkway for strolling by the bay and marina. Free beach service is provided when you go to the ocean. A splash park, toddler pool, hot tub, and Destin West's largest pool and exercise facility are the additional amenities found on the beach side. You can easily access the beach side by walking the sky bridge from bay to beach.

LOCATION:

Our condominium is centrally located between Destin and Fort Walton Beach on Okaloosa Island. We are five miles from Destin and one mile from Fort Walton Beach. You are in the middle of two of the best vacation cities in America. Not only do you have four miles of un-developed land on one side (free of mass crowds of people), but on the other side you have access to the Gulfarium, beachside restaurants and shops, fishing, water-sports, and more. Take your pick! Either side has the vacation you have been waiting for.

FEATURES:

Not only is our location perfect and our condominium's new, but the view is unforgettable. Imagine an oasis of palm trees with cool, turquoise water running like ribbon (the lazy river) around gorgeous tropical landscaping. Lounge on our large porch and overlook sailboats floating by on the inner coastal waterway while watching the kids float by on the lazy river.

BAYSIDE POOLS:

Close your eyes on our private patio and listen to the waterfall hit the water in the additional heated pool and you will think you are in a tropical paradise. Or enjoy the 5000 sq.foot pool, gym, and kiddy water playground at Destin West across the street. We also have internet access for those of you who need to connect for business. With so many features, how could you pass this up?

The new Emerald Coast Convention Center

Beachfront restaurants...The Gulfarium

Okaloosa Fishing Pier....The Boardwalk

Shopping.................Deep sea fishing

Snorkeling...............Diving

Another Great Vacation at Pelican L-01

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this particular condo. It's closeness to the lazy river, the lanai overlooking the lazy river, and the vast entertainment choices within walking distance. We spent many enjoyable hours in the aforementioned lazy river, the pool, the spa areas, and just soaking up the sun on the lanai. The atmosphere of this community is very family oriented and my family found our condo well equipped to handle the needs of our creature comforts-even had Wi-Fi for those that require electronic non-sun related therapy....what more can a modern family ask for....at least I got them out on the lanai---in the "Sun"...while not in the lazy river. Thanks again to the Bill Tumlin family and staff for such a great vacation in a clean, spacious, and home away from home feeling that ya'll(yes---ya'll) created!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a great stay! The "closeness to the lazy river" and the lanai are something you have to see to value its location. Thank you for your mention of the creature comforts provided, the WIFI as an important feature, and the atmosphere at Destin West , a "family oriented community". We appreciate you as great guests. Thank you for your high praise of our family/staff as property managers and housekeepers. We all--with the owners--try to make our guests' stay as comfortable and clean as we would want it to be. Your appreciation means so much to all who involved. We hope you'll be back soon! Best regards , Bill & Meredith Tumlin

Great rental for our large family

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exceptionally clean and well taken care of. It was well decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Easy access to the lazy river and pools and a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Appliances were nice. Covered parking was nice benefit as well.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 2 boys (9 and 5) had a blast! This condo and facilities are fantastic! My boys loved the lazy river and pools! The walk to the beach was easy and the beaches are private. Conveniently located near things to do and places to eat. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and are already talking about planning our next trip here next year! Thanks to Meredith for helping us and providing all the useful information beforehand!

Owner's Response: Dear Brett, We are thrilled that you had "a blast"....so glad you found the condo and facilities amazing. We feel they are, too. We pride ourselves in helping you have the best vacation that you can. Now--you and your family deserve a shout out for treating the condo as your own by repairing a louver that was damaged as well as leaving the condo in excellent condition. We so appreciate your care and communication throughout the rental process and stay....you are ideal guests. Thank you. We look forward to your return next year!

We loved this condo so much! It was perfect for us and our 3 kids. The kids loved the bunk bed area. The lazy river and pools were also a big hit with all of us. The condo was very clean and well appointed. We had everything that we needed! We can't wait to visit this condo again as soon as possible!
