Welcome to Delightful Waves at Pelican Beach 717!  Our two-bedroom, gulf view condo is the ideal location for you and your guest.  Recently updated with fresh paint, new living room furniture, bedroom furniture and mattresses this is exactly what you're looking for.  The master suite features a king bed with gulf views, sliding door access to the balcony and an attached bath featuring granite countertops and a garden tub!  The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed with access to the second full bathroom with a walk-in shower and hallway access.

**Property Improvement Project**

The resort has began a waterproofing process on the exterior of the building, but a work schedule has been prepared to assure minimal impact to guests as they will be working on one building at a time. There will be times when there may be temporary closures to condominium balconies, areas of the grounds and amenities. Please be assured, at the times that it does, there will always be one of the two feature outdoor pools open for guests to enjoy! Our rates reflect a discount for the waterproofing project from Sept 2022-May 2023. No further discounts will be given due to the improvement project. We will continue to update this message as advances are made in the project. 

With free Wi-Fi you'll want to update your social media, take a few photos, wave at the dolphins in the surf, and begin another perfect day in Destin!  Whether it be business or pleasure that brings you to Destin, our seaside condo will ensure the ultimate peace and relaxation.  Time at the beach is never long enough, start making forever memories……today.

Everything was great    Aug 12, 2019

My husband and I loved this condo. Everything was working, we had no complaints. The view was beautiful. Coffee on the patio was a treat every morning and a glass of wine watching the sunset each evening. Management was great. The condo was nicely decorated!!!



The trip was wonderful!!!    Sep 25, 2018

Unit 717 was the perfect set up for us. It was my 3 adult daughters and 6 month old grandson. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Staff was awesome were extremely polite yet watching over the compound carefully which was relaxing to us staying there. And booking the trip was easy and refreshingly painless!

Great Family Vacation!    Aug 21, 2018

review star

The condo was nice, clean and updated. There is a beach view from the balcony that overlooked both pools. The resort has a chair company that you can rent chairs and umbrellas ($35 for 2 chairs and an umbrella), if you bring your own you will have to sit really far back from the ocean waves. The condo washer is not HE, so we had to go buy different detergent (no biggie-just an FYI on your visit). **Shopping and food:You are close to Winn Dixie and Target for groceries!! Food wise you are close to scenic route 98 that has a lot of the beach front places to eat like The Crab Trap & Pompano Joes. We always left around 4:30 to get there at 5. Lulu's of Destin has where you can do your reservation online, so you're not waiting 2 hours. We have a 2 year old with no patience, so that was extremely nice!! A lot of the people staying used the grills to cook their own food vs. eating out each night. The staff was friendly and we met a lot of really nice people during our stay. I would definitely come back on our next trip!
