Bachelorette party weekend
We loved the house and location. Everything was decorated nicely. Our bride had a wonderful time. Thank you!!
Great house in a great location!
The Pelicans Perch is a great home for a family vacation or a group of people! Very short walk from the beach with cross walk access to the beach. Home is equipped with everything you need. Kitchen is great! We cooked while on vacation instead of going to restaurants. It worked out perfectly. This house is decorated and well put together and you can tell that they spared no expense on decor. Even the furniture looks very expensive! The house is very well put together without being over done! There is a pool at the property Kinda small but the kids had a blast. You don’t even have to worry about renting bikes because the home comes with 4 of them. The only drawback for my group was there was no kid bikes. My son was not quite tall enough to ride the big bikes. Home does have TVs in every room and WiFi which was a must! All in all this is a great property and we will definitely be returning!!
Great place! The property is gorgeous! Definitely will be back!
Love it!! Will be back! Highly recommend it!
Your place is perfect. We were so pleased to be close to beach, shopping, etc. You thought of everything in providing use of beach chairs and bikes made our stay extra special. Our family traveled in from several states and love to cook and you had all the cooking needs for a big dinner. We plan to make this our annual event. Also, the screened areas was an extra bonus to enjoy the outdoors even more!! What a great retreat!
Perfect Destin Rental
Clean and nicely decorated house. Some rentals look like the owners dumped all their old furniture. Not this one. Finishes are lovely. The house is supplied with everything you need. Sand toys, beach wagons, boards and pool floats. Well stocked kitchen and lots of towels. As noted by a previous renter the clothes dryer is slow. If you have children hopping in and out of the pool and to the beach you will need extra beach towels for everyone. Loved having porches on all sides-someplace to sit in the shade all times of day. Dining room easily seated our group of nine. Great rental!
Great house!! Highly recommend this! Clean, close to the beach. Have all beach supplies: chairs, floats, beach wagons and toys. Thank you for such a nice vacation house to make memories 🏊♀️🏄♀️🏌️🚴♀️
