My wife and I had a very busy year. We got married in April and shortly after found out we are expecting a little one in May 18. So with everything we had going on a wanted to plan a getaway for the both of us and this condo was perfect! Everything was super nice the location of the condo couldn't have been better! We had fun relaxing on the beach all day and got to eat at some very nice resturaunts nearby! The weekend was perfect and we loved every minute of our stay! I definitely recommend and will be booking again soon!
We very much enjoyed the sea view from the 17th floor and the apartment is clean with nice decor. We shopped for groceries across the street and cooked our meals in the kitchen, which had all the pots, dishes etc that I needed. I did turkey with all the trimmings. The beach is just an elevator ride away so I didn’t have to drive at all for a few days. The key code system was simple and straightforward and Yavuz communicated with us what we needed to do. Parking was close.
We have visited Destin several times, but this was our first location right on the beach. Yavuz was great communicating the arrival instructions and texted me the day we arrived to check if we need anything. Having beach chairs and an umbrella along with a cart to take them down to the beach in the condo was very convenient. We had no problems during our visit and the location of the resort was close to all of the Destin attractions. We also enjoyed having a gym at the resort to use. The view out the balcony window along with the close access to the beach made this an excellent location.
Thank you Yavuz for a wonderful condo to stay in while our family was on vacation in Destin, Fl. The place came with many amenities that you just would not get staying in a hotel. The beds were super comfortable. The view is unbelievably beautiful. The kids loved having their own bathroom. Pelican Beach was overall a great place to stay with two pools, a hot tub, a cafe, many grills, a tiki bar and a private beach area. The condo is located near many fun things to do like the water park located directly across the street. The condo supplied two chairs and an umbrella for us to use on the beach, which kept us from having to spend money on rentals. There are beach toys for the little ones. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.
We had a great vacation here and everything was perfect! I highly recommend this condo as we had such a wonderful experience!
The location was perfect! The condo is right on the beach, it's right in the middle of all of the attractions, places to eat and stores. It took us 10 minutes to get basically anywhere in Destin. We got to the east side of Destin, where Bass Pro and other shopping was, in 10 minutes and we also got to Harborwalk Village (where there's restaurants, dolphin tour, kids attractions, etc), on the west side of the condo, in less than 10 minutes. Another thing we liked about the location of the condo was that it was placed back off of the road, so even though it was in the middle of all of the things to do it was still quiet. Parking was also great. We never had to walk a distance to get to our car. There was always a close parking spot, and it was free :)!
We were also very impressed with the facility itself. Pelican Beach Resort was always clean and the staff always appeared to be working to keep it looking nice. When I say that the condo is right on the beach- I mean it! Not only was our view from our balcony facing the beach, but right as you get off of the elevator on the ground floor you turn right, go out automatic doors, and right there are the two pools and the beach. Everything was easily accessible. It was also fun Sunday night because right by the little Tiki Hut that served drinks/food there was a DJ that played music & had karaoke and a little light show. It was kid friendly, too. Another convenient & pleasant amenity was the little store and cafe that's on ground level. The store had pool/beach toys, sunscreen, drinks etc. and the cafe served breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff in the cafe were super friendly, too!
Lastly, the owner, Yavuz C, was friendly and very easy to work with. The morning after we arrived he emailed and text to make sure everything was going well, and before we left the condo we also spoke.
We will definitely be going back!
The condo looked just like the pictures. It was very clean and had a fabulous view. Perfect for families. The beach equipment that was provided was awesome and definitely a money saver. Would recommend staying here anytime.
