About Teresa Calcote

We are Victor and Teresa Calcote from Ocean Springs, Mississippi, and love the Destin area. We purchased this unit so that we would be able to enjoy it more often.

Teresa Calcote purchased this condo in 2015

Why Teresa Calcote chose Destin

We love the resort and all that it has to offer. We already had one unit and liked it so much, that we purchased this one a short while ago.

What makes this condo unique

This resort is self-contained. Once you purchase initial groceries, you never have to leave the property. However, if you wish to go to restaurants, water parks, etc., they are all very close.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay here! We went fishing, saw crabs, relaxed on the beach, and rode on a helicopter! Oh, and...WE GOT ENGAGED! Right on your balcony! .... Our week long vacation has come to an end, but we will always cherish the memories made at Pelican 609. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

Great views! Comfortable unit and amenities.

  • 4 of 5

Beach rental service was excellent. Unlike other places, the elevators were easy to catch. Our unit was very clean and comfortable and had great breezes on the balcony. Resort was full of families with small children, so the noise level outside was understandable. The parking is a little bit of a trek, but you could usually find a covered spot which kept the car cool between uses. Enjoyed the stay!

My fiancé and I and another couple stayed in this condo. IT WAS PERFECT! We actually slept on the pullout couch which was very comfortable! Teresa was great to work with and she had everything you could think of and more supplied in the kitchen. I wish we could have stayed longer!!

Cute & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a Great time at Pelican Beach Resort. The condo was decorated so cute and was very comfortable. The balcony view was perfect and the condo was very well stocked with everything we needed. I love that this resort has so much available on the grounds. The beach staff was very nice and helpful. We reserved our chairs when we got there and had them for the duration of the trip, without having to get up every morning and choose a spot. We walked to the Back Porch Restaurant down the beach and had supper, which was great. We will definitely come back. Thank you Teresa for being so nice; we enjoyed staying at your condo.

Had a great stay with absolutely perfect weather.

  • 5 of 5

Unit 609 was very comfortable and has every needed for a relaxing vacation. I was impressed by the quietness at night and the shutters and shade made the bedroom very dark and great for sleeping. My only suggestion would be to take out the bedroom carpeting and make the whole unit tile floor.
