Pelican Resort building will be going through a renovation this upcoming Winter and the building will be re-painted to a more modern Gray-White color similar to the Terrace building. Dolphin Pool and hot tub will be tentatively closed during Oct 21-Dec 27 and Gulf pool and hot tub will be tentatively closed during Dec 28 to March 3rd. Building will have at least one heated pool and hot tub open during this time.

This vacation home is right at the beach You’ll love it because of the great ocean views from the living room, balcony and kitchen and dinner area. It has new floors and brand new kitchen. Everything is upgraded. USB ports in kitchen area. The views, especially sunsets from 11th floor patio is amazing. I offer beach chairs/umbrella, Netflix and high speed wireless internet. Pelican Beach Resort has very loyal customers that come back again and again every year.

This is a no smoking facility, smoking is not allowed inside the unit or on the balcony. Resort has the eviction power for those who do not follow the rules. Smoking is only allowed at two designated locations at the Resort.

We do not offer any military or other discounts. Applicable last minute specials are already built-in to the daily rates. -You pay full amount to confirm your reservation. Please check applicable cancellation policy below- 

We do a credit card authorization of $300 as a security/damage deposit, one day before check-in, but never charge your credit card. We automatically release this authorization hold 1 day after check-out. -This item may be stated as "deposit paid at the property" in the quote-

There is no road to pass, we are directly on the beach. 

PETS are not allowed per the HOA (no matter how small).

During March-October there is beach service at the Pelican Private Beach and beach vendor does not allow  chairs/umbrella in front of their rental chairs. For guests that prefer 1st or 2nd row seats, we provide their contact information, so you may reserve seats in advance. 

If you reached us through vrbo/homeaway/expedia you will have to book through that channel as we do not accept direct bookings when approached through those channels. For repeat guests we may provide our vacationsatdestin site. 

We do not have snowbird monthly rates. We provide a 20% discount for stays longer than 28 days. This discount is already built into the rate you see when you go to “pay now”.

Our similar other unit's VRBO listing numbers are given at the end of this description. You may check those if your dates do not show availability.

Cleaning and linen fees are included in our pricing either under "Resort Fee". The longer you stay, the less rent you pay per night since the Resort fee is averaged over your stay. 

There is registration at the front desk where they check age requirements and allow up to 6 people to be registered in the unit. 

Check-in is at 4 PM and checkout is at 10 AM. Since you directly go to the unit with your assigned door code, there is no deadline for checking in. You may check-in any time after 4 PM of the check-in day, just like you would at your own vacation home. 

You will feel the luxury all around you in this condo. The unit is updated with granite counter-tops and new vanities. Kitchen cabinets are upgraded. All of the appliances are replaced with Stainless Steel LG units. The carpets in living room and bedroom areas are replaced with luxury laminate flooring. New 40 inch TV in the bedroom. Separate wifi extender in the bedroom. Freshly painted custom bank beds. New memory foam Twin XL mattress in bunk beds. Cool Gel queen memory foam mattress at the sofa bed. New cabinets in bathrooms. The unit is tastefully decorated with everything that you would need. We even have built-in usb ports in the kitchen area. We operate the rental ourselves as a family so you will get individual attention from me. I have two other units in Destin, Sandestin Resort that are listed in airbnb recently with great reviews. We use same cleaning company with same attention to detail.

Coin operated washer/dryer in the floor, next to the elevators at the laundry room (bring 10 quarters for one washer/dryer cycle).

We have a combination regular and Keurig supported coffee machine.

A pack n' play in the unit (no mattress or linens for Pack n' Play)

We provide beach chairs and umbrella in the unit. You may also rent chairs and umbrella from the beach vendor if you so desire. We provide their contact info so you may rent in advance if you wish to have a frond row chairs.

We love beach vacations. Growing up in Cyprus, I used to think that no beach is better than the salty waters of Mediterranean and our sandy beaches are the best. Then I saw turquoise waters and sugary white beaches of Destin, Florida and fell in love at first sight. This is the reason we bought beach condos in Destin. We visit regularly as a family and rent them ourselves. We have a total of 7 units at Pelican Beach Resort. Waterscape, Majestic Sun at Seascape Resort and Luau, Grand Sandestin, Bahia and Elation at Sandestin Resort are our other locations. They are all by the beach and are updated. You can expect same great service and same attention to detail for all our condos in the area.
