Pelican Beach Resort

This resort is located in the Heart of Destin across from the Big Kahuna Water/Theme Park. It is a gated resort with covered parking, two tennis courts, a game room, a restaurant/deli that serves fresh Columbian Coffee and muffins in the morning. At other times, it serves pizza, sandwiches, soft drinks beer and wine. There is a small convenience store as well. There is also a Tiki bar overlooking the beach, an indoor/outdoor heated pool, a baby pool, a large outdoor pool with a waterfall on the east side of the building and a brand new Gulf front pool with zero entry access, fountains and more.

What Destin Offers

There are so many wonderful restaurants nearby. We love to visit the harbor area. Other popular spots are the Donut Hole for breakfast, the Back Porch with beach views for lunch or dinner and, of course, since we are from New Orleans, Louisiana Lagniappe. Dewey Destins and Beauchamps are located on the habor as well and are fun places to hang out.

Destin Commons outdoor shopping mall is a short distance away. It has a huge movie theatre complex, Hard Rock Cafe, Bass Pro Fishing shop, Johnnie Rockets, and all the mall shops you have come to know and love in a beautiful outdoor setting. The Silver Sands factory outlet mall is only seven miles east.

If it's deep sea fishing you like, you'll find many captains and shipping vessels for hire at the Destin Harbor, only three miles to the west of Pelican. Or, you might just like to walk along the docks and view the day's catch. Also, Fort Walton Beach, just a few miles to the west, has a new pier, where the fishing is reported to be wonderful.

The Emerald Coast was recently picked as the #1 Beach in America by USA Today readers and selected for the 8th year in a row as the Best Beach in the South and Top Family Destination by Southern Living readers! Coastal Living reported the Destin Harbor to be one of the top harbors in the US.

Everything was perfect!    Jun 01, 2017

review star

Our group of two adults and 4 kids stayed here for a week and were very pleased with the condo. Descriptions and photos from the listing were accurate and we did not feel misled about any part of our stay. Unit was clean and well maintained with modern decor and appliances. We had three in the bunk room, and then also used the rollaway in the living area. The beds were very comfortable, AC worked great and it was easy to control the temp in the condo, and the building was not loud with other guests.

I was a little worried about having to take an elevator to/from the 20th floor every time we went down to the beach, but it was not bad at all. The elevators are fast and there are 5 of them, so we didn't have any issues with waiting to go up or down. The beach is maybe 50 steps from the elevator and you don't have to cross any streets. There's free covered parking, and carts available to use for taking groceries, luggage, etc. up to the condo. All the basic amenities were provided for the kitchen, and it was nice to have the washer & dryer although just be aware it is a small stackable unit, so don't plan on doing family loads of laundry in it.

The view from the balcony is gorgeous! The water at the beach was absolutely amazing during our sunny days there, it was like swimming in a pool. Prettiest water I've ever swam in. We had a couple of rainy days and that brought up some seaweed that made the water less clear, so just be aware that could happen, but that's true for any rental in Destin. The beach service that provides two chairs and an umbrella is nice, although $30 a day, and if you want to be in the front row you have to get out there pretty early (there aren't any beach chairs provided in the unit). It's not really a big deal to be not in the front though. We also rented a kayak from them which was very convenient. The beach didn't feel too crowded since it was only Pelican guests there. And the tiki bar right on the beach was a nice plus!

I only wish we could have brought our dogs, but otherwise I would definitely stay here again or feel confident renting any of Paul's other properties!

The condo was updated, very clean and equipped with every thing we needed. Great Ocean view with easy access the beach. The condo is located just minutes away from great shopping and restaurants. The owners were very kind and helpful. No complaints at all. We will definitely be back!

The condo was located in a great location...close to everything. The condo itself was clean and very functional, and well stocked. We spent the majority of the time at the beach, the pool and watching the dolphins from our balcony. Paul was very quick to respond. We would definitely stay again.

Thanks Paul
