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

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

Enjoyed everything about this condo!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the condo was extremely convenient for enjoying everything on the bayside. The ease of using the provided beachside service made it so easy and enjoyable to spend time on the beach during the day. The condo was in great condition and the owners/property managers answered promptly and assisted when I had a question during my stay. I look forward to coming back!

Very convient, first floor access. Could sit on balcony and watch kids at lazy river.

  • 4 of 5

Great property, very clean, loved lazy river. Dissapointed that the only condo with first floor balcony without a personal gas grill . Also every other condo near us had access to beach cart and beach accessories from the condo garage. Nearly impossible to get a cart, took at least an hour to locate.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive review and good feedback. We appreciate your perspective of what is important to you in terms of the best stay. With condo rentals, owners are different in what they offer. Some provide a gas grill, some don't due to the liability. However, Destin West does provide 6 free standing charcoal grills on a large green (behind the lazy river) for guests to use, complete with picnic tables and a great bay view. The owners of Pelican L-01 provide a "premier" package for guests--free beach service-- which provides two beach chairs/umbrella set up and reserved for you daily at the beach. This alleviates the problem and worry of guests carrying chairs/umbrellas to the beach and staking out a beach site daily. With beach service, you're guaranteed a convenient beach set up and site daily. The carts offered from another owner's garage to his/her guests were given because that owner doesn't offer free beach service. (Again, owners provide different things.) The owner wanted to help guests have easier access to the beach by lending out beach carts for the week. Just as every condo is different, so are the amenities and perks that an owner offers guests. We appreciate positive feedback that helps us reassess what we may need to provide and/or what information we may need to communicate more effectively. Sincerely, Meredith Tumlin Shelley's Vacation Favorites Shelley Tumlin, Bill & Meredith Tumlin, Sherry Knight, Grace Ellis .

The Condo was perfect for our little family of four. It was very clean and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was perfect for our family of four. Everything we needed was there and the beach service was a bonus surprise. We will be back again! My ONLY complaint is that the kitchen trash can was small. You can't go wrong with the value of this rental. Everything you could want is within minutes of this location. I can't wait for next year!

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.
