Our beachfront, one bedroom condo (sleeps 6) is located right in the heart of Destin, Florida! 

Pelican Beach Resort is a high-rise resort community with all the amenities and more that you've come to expect from your beach vacation - like 3 pools, tennis court, fitness center, tiki bar, cafe, video-arcade game room, and vending machines!

This condo is very conveniently situated on the ground floor of the resort but still offers astounding views of the white sandy dunes and crystal clear blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You can be toes in the sand in less than a minute!

When you enter the unit, you'll find the bedroom to the left with a king-sized bed, dresser, closet, TV, and bathroom (shower/tub combo). The bunk area is in the long hallway creating a unique, private area for kids to sleep or hang out to play on their devices. A second bathroom (walk-in shower) is nearby. 

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare a quick midday snack or make a delicious dinner! On the other hand, you may just decide to grill some steaks, shrimp, or burgers on one of the outdoor gas grills (see the front desk for grill use). We even offer complimentary Kcups for our Pelican Beach #102 guests! Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area with seating for 4 and additional barstools at the eat-in counter.

To make it easier for the chef to still feel akin with the group, the living room is right next to the kitchen and dining area. There's ample seating for your party to play a game, watch TV, or read a book. We even have some board games, cards, and a few books to help entertain on a rainy day. The sofa will host 2 more guests who will slip off to sleep at night with the sounds of the waves crashing in the background. Step right outside onto the balcony for your fantastic view! You will love the colorful Adirondack chairs as well as the comfy couch for relaxing.

Pelican Beach is a fantastic, family-friendly beachfront resort in one of the most sought after vacation spots in America! While the resort does rise 19 stories above the water and encompasses 340 units, this ground floor condo is as close as you can get to all the action! Right outside the entrance to #102, you'll find the huge outdoor pool, kiddie pool, and hot tub. There are restrooms poolside, but with the proximity of the unit, you may just want to run back inside.

The Pelican Beach Resort Tiki Bar is also less than 30 seconds away. In season (Spring Break thru October), it offers both non-alcoholic and alcoholic specialty drinks, beer and wine, soda, hot dogs, burgers, pizza, and ice cream! And coming Summer 2020, a new zero entry pool and hot tub with seating will be steps down from the Tiki Bar. Enjoy tanning in the Florida sunshine while listening to live music and sipping a cool beverage.

Just down the super short pier and over the dunes is the beach! Spend the day building sandcastles and skim boarding while trying to catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two. There is a shower to rinse off any extra sand that you don't want to take home. Inside Unit #102, you'll find 4 beach chairs and an umbrella plus a few sand toys for you to use. But if you'd prefer, you can pay extra for daily beach chair setup through the on-site service by La Dolce Vita. All personal chairs and umbrellas must be set up behind the rented chairs, but guests are still allowed to sit in the wet sand to play or watch children. 

Towards the front of the resort, behind the outdoor resort pool, are the community gas grills, and right beyond that is the Pelican Beach Cafe (January thru October). You can grab your morning caffeination plus a quick bite with a freshly-baked muffin or cinnamon roll or sit down for a heartier breakfast like an omelet, pancakes, and bacon. If you oversleep the breakfast hours, don't worry! The Cafe also offers lunch options such as salads, burgers, PB&Js for the kids, pizza, seafood specials, as well as Keylime pie and Coca Cola products. Next door to this delicious eatery is an ATM machine and a video game room. The indoor/outdoor pool, spa, and fitness center all surround the cafe. Even on rainy days, you won't be bored at Pelican Beach!

And finally, above the covered parking area is a tennis court! You'll need to bring your own racket and ball, but it's there if you would like to get in a game of the vacationers.

What was once a quaint fishing village has now turned into a vacation destination! That sugar white sand beach and emerald water you came for is less than a minute walk from your condo entrance! And Pelican Beach Resort is nestled right in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of Destin, Florida. 

Inside Pelican Beach Cafe you will find some items of necessity for sale like sunscreen, swim floaties, and toys. But if you need more, a number of restaurants, activities, and shops are all within short walking distance including Alvin's Island souvenir store, Winn Dixie grocery store, Mellow Mushroom, The Pancakery, Dunkin' Donuts, Fuji Sushi and Seafood Buffet, and Big Kahuna's outdoor water park.

The Harbor is only a couple of miles west on Hwy 98. Here is where you can charter a deep sea fishing trip, a visit to Crab Island or a dolphin cruise, rent a jet ski and pontoon boats, listen to live music, let the kids run around in a giant hamster ball or jump as high as the sky, or watch the weekly fireworks show. The HarborWalk Village houses an array of activities that are sure to meet your entire group's needs and wants!

Visit The Track for go-cart and bumper rides, arcade games, mini golf, merry-go-round fun, or flying through the air like your favorite superhero!

If you like shopping, then you'll love the Silver Sands Premium Outlets and Destin Commons Shopping Center. Both have plenty of stores and eating options to fill a day or two. Grand Boulevard is also a newer shopping/dining spot in Sandestin. The Ovation Dining Club - a movie theater which offers in-theater dining services, Chef Emeril Lagasse's new restaurant, and the 30A Farmers' Market are all located at Grand Boulevard.

About 5 miles east of us in Sandestin, you'll find The Village at Baytowne Wharf. It has something for everyone in the family! There are loads of appetizing restaurants, ice cream shoppes, retail shopping, and a whole bunch of fun activities like zip lining, a 4-story high ropes course (and a smaller one for younger kids), a carousel, and a dueling piano bar. The Baytowne Wharf sits on the Choctawhatchee Bay which boasts a marina and fishing pier where you'll definitely want to watch at least one sunset.

Of course, there are plenty of golf courses throughout the area. Take your pick, and set up a tee time!

We've partnered with a couple of local companies to provide discounts on fun excursions exclusively to guests of Pelican Beach #102! Check out Cruisin' Tikis Destin for a ride around on a floating tiki bar. You bring your own beverages and snacks, they provide a cooler, ice, bluetooth speaker for playing your favorite playlist, and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Destin Jeep Tours and Rentals will let you rent a Jeep Wrangler for the day or week to really soak in more of that Florida sunshine! They also offer rentals of paddle boards, Yeti coolers, fishing poles, and more! Whatever activities you choose, you can't go wrong in Destin, Florida. And we hope you'll choose to experience your vacation and stay with us at Pelican Beach 102!

Awesome stay! We highly recommend room 102. The location of the room is very convienient to the pool and beach access, as well as to the front desk and parking. The decor and furnishings are very welcoming and comfortable. The room is very clean, up to date, and has everything you need on vacation. We appreciated the use of beach toys, chairs, and umbrella. The balcony furniture is great for relaxing in front of a breathtaking view!



Loved every second    May 11, 2019

This place was fantastic. The unit was perfect for us-close to the pool and only steps away to the beach. The owner was so helpful along with the staff at Pelican Beach. I would highly recommend a stay here and I know we will definitely book again!

Wonderful Place to Stay!    Apr 03, 2019

This is a wonderful place to stay!! Beautiful furnishings and has everything you need for a great family vacation!! We enjoyed both beach and pool time and easy access to food. We also appreciated the friendliness of management. They will take care of you! Highly recommend if you are traveling to Destin!


Yes! This condo is part of a high-rise resort complex in Destin, Florida, that is located right on the white beaches! No roads to cross to get to the sand.
No. Unfortunately, we have a no pets policy with our property management company (excluding service animals).
No, we do not offer beach chairs or an umbrella. However, we do provide a few beach mats and sand toys inside the storage closet. There is also beach chair setup available for an additional charge provided by La Dolce Vita Beach Service.
Absolutely! There are a few restaurants you can walk to including Pelican Beach Cafe, Mellow Mushroom, The Pancakery, Ciao Italia Bistro, Yogurt Mountain, Fuji Seafood Buffet, and Dunkin Donuts.
Our condo is a 1 bedroom, two bathroom unit that sleeps 6 adults in 1 king bed, hallway bunks, and 1 queen sleeper sofa. Resort wristbands are required in all common areas. 
For sure! Who can get by without internet these days?! We do have Wi-Fi in Pelican Beach #102 as well as cable smart TV and a DVD player.  
Only when you book our property within 30 days of your stay is the full amount is due upon booking. If you book longer than 30 days out, then 30% of the total is due upon booking. The remaining balance is due at least 30 days before your check-in day. You can pay the other 70% in as many payments as you'd like as long as it has been paid in full 30 days before you arrive.
CANCELLATIONS OR SHORTENED STAYS: Reservations canceled prior to 60 days of check-in, will forfeit a $75.00 cancellation fee. Reservations canceled within 60 days of arrival date will forfeit the deposit. Reservations canceled within 30 days of check-in will have all monies forfeited. Refunds will not be given for late arrivals or early departures. To prevent loss of rental payments we strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance - available through our property management company.
We can accept reservations as far in advance as the next calendar year and perhaps even further out. Hurry and get your vacation booked for each coming year!
There are 2 outdoor community pools at Pelican Beach Resort, one of which is a heated indoor/outdoor pool. 
We typically rent for 7 nights from Saturday to Saturday. November, December, January, and February are usually rented by the month, but weekly rates are available if the month has not been reserved. Shorter stays could become available if a monthly or owner rental ends during the middle of the week. It never hurts to ask!
Renters must be at least 25 years of age.
