Pelican Elbow stay    Aug 07, 2021

review star

This was our 3rd time staying at the Pelican Elbow. We absolutely love our home away from home. We have most everything we need when we stay and the beach isn't far away. Mr. Ron is a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to our next weekly vacation. I highly recommend this beautiful place for your next getaway.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this property and each time is better than the last. It is starting to feel like home which makes it hard to leave. The house has everything you need for your stay and it is located close to so many great activities. We can't wait to get back there for a 4th time!!

We stayed for 4 weeks and found the property to have everything we needed. A fully stocked Kithen, well furnished home that incuded everything we needed for an extended stay! Super close to all activities and restaurants! In a gated community that felt safe and was very quiet! We enjoyed the fact that everyday we could take a swim in the private refreshing pool. When traveling to this area we will certainly consider staying here again.

The Pelican's Elbow is the most completely stocked home we have ever rented. The kitchen has everything that is needed for comfortable family meals. Ron makes you feel at home from the first day when he meets you and acquaints you with the home and the area. We loved having the use of a garage during our extended stay and our dog loved the fenced backyard. The neighborhood is quiet and the location of the home to the beach and shopping is great. We plan to return next winter.


3-1/2 blocks with sidewalks all the way.
No. You need to cross the beach road, a 35 mph city street. Traffic there is very much aware of pedestrians and there are marked crosswalks.
There is a free county parking lot right on the beach, about 5 blocks from Pelican's Elbow. There are restroom facilities there. There is another free county parking lot right across the street and a third free lot a block south of the beach road, off Driftwood Street.
Captain Dave's seafood restaurant is right on the beach. You can walk to it -- about 3-1/2 blocks.  Kenny D's, a burger and Cajun restaurant is right across the street from Captain Dave's.  Pomano Joe's seafood restaurant is also right on the beach, about 6 blocks from Pelican's Elbow, at the east end of the free county parking lot.

There is an information notebook at Pelican's Elbow containing personal recommendations and reviews of many area restaurants.
The large Destin Commons Mall is about 3 miles to the west.  The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is about 3 miles to the east, and the Grand Boulevard Shopping Center is about 6 miles to the east.  There are grocery stores in or near these malls.
The Pelican's Elbow does not have a golf cart, but there are several cart rental companies in the area. See our website for lists of firms for golf cart, scoot cart, bicycle and motor scooter rentals. Note that golf carts are licensed and considered low-speed electric vehicles, which are subject to the same traffic and parking laws as automobiles.
