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?

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

Very comfortable and cozy "home" feeling. Calm and relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

The first impression was great, cool AC to escape the summer weather, fresh new home smell, carpet was cozily inviting shoe removal, while cleanliness eased my mind. The first impression was not the last of our great stay. Pool was not over exaggerated. It was better than expressed with the slow, calm, lazy river. For those who have not stayed, it was 10x better being on this first floor than any other floor I could imagine. Our back yard is the pool, just as the picture shows. You walk out and can jump right in. With others having to use the elevators, stairs, longer walks, this was certainly a prized location. If you have kids, they will enjoy this as will you. Also, strangely enough, this is also the closest to your parking spot, out the front door, I could look over the ledge and see our vehicle. Hard to beat condo in a hard to be resort. From 15 years experience visiting Destin, this is my new favorite location.

A relaxing retreat!

  • 4 of 5

The lazy river was the highlight for my 9 & 7 year old boys. Great location, literally right off the back patio. The walk to the beach is 7 minutes. The chairs and umbrella are a nice bonus, however, if the beach attendant isn't around, just grab a non-reserved spot.

Perfect for a family of 4. Has all of the amenities you would want.

The only negative is the internet stinks. It went out everyday, for at least 45 minutes, the tv is hooked up to wifi so if you are watching a show, expect it to go out. We didn't watch too much tv, but we were watching the Cavs in the playoffs and it went out in the middle of the game.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that the lazy river was the highlight for the boys and was super convenient from the lanai patio.. Glad the beach umbellas/chairs made their beach visits so comfortable--great idea to grab a non-reserved spot! We appreciate this most positive review about amenities and the condo itself. We apologize for the WIFI/cable problem! That is not acceptable. Had we known, we could have had the problem corrected. We so appreciate tenants like you and look forward to serving you again.
