Condo is nice.

This was the first time my family has experienced with Destin. The beach is amazing. The condo is clean and neat. We enjoyed it and hoped to have more time to stay.

Would have been nice.....in 1976!

  • 2 of 5

I have stayed at Pelican beach more than 20 times. This is the first time that my condo was sub par. The furniture was very old and outdated. The unit appeared to have not been painted in at least 10 years. It was clean, but, not neat. Televisions had been updated, but, the old sets were still sitting in the living room and in a bedroom closet. Wires were not hidden and hanging out halfway through the bedroom. One of the folding doors for the laundry room was leaning against the living room wall, behind an old entertainment center.

The price was decent, and the owner was easy to work with, but it took almost 2 weeks to get the deposit removed from my credit card. It's time for this unit to be be totally remodeled, then it would be a good value. As it sits currently, I would not want to put my family in it, and I cannot recommend it for yours.

Owner's Response: Pelican Beach was built in 1997, so I don't know what 1976 means. - The furniture is commercial grade, which is high quality and durable. I have never had a complaint about the furniture before. This a handicapped accessible and commercial certified furniture is required. - I knew there was some touch up painting to be done, and that was completed before I got this review. - I left old TVs to accommodate children who bring their video game systems, No one has ever complained about extra TVs, and upgraded TVs. - "Wires were not hidden and hanging out halfway through the bedroom," is an exaggeration. I discovered they had been pulled from the wall by a previous renter, but they were fixed back to the wall before I got this review. - The folding door was fixed before I got this review - The website takes 7-10 days after I issue the refund, so this complaint has nothing to do with me, as I issued the refund almost immediately after the guest's stay Overall this review was grossly exaggerated and and nit-picky. After the Peak season from April to September there are often small maintenance issues to be handled, which I do in October. Most of my guests take wonderful care of the place, but some do not and leave their mark. I personally come to Pelican Beach Resort for the beach and all the resort amenities at my fingertips, not to admire the furniture, and paint job. AND I guarantee to beat any rate on comparable accommodations.

Exactly as described - great experience

  • 5 of 5

This unit is described accurately and is well maintained. The location is prime. Check in/check out was a breeze and Bart was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend this rental to others who are looking for a clean, economical place to stay in Destin.

Good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The picture shown accurately displays the view from the balcony. It is not direct gulf front accommodations, but is gulf front view (condo is a on the side, but angled to get a good beach view). The beach is a short distance that is no trouble to access. The resort is clean, in a safe area, good for family, has adequate parking, and a sidewalk on the highway good for walking/running. The condo was clean enough for an older condo, which can't sparkle and shine as new ones do. The cleaner did forget a dirty baby diaper left under the kitchen sink. Not a problem, though, because we had some to go along with it. :) The only annoying thing was the slamming door from the pool area, which they need to repair, because it was a constant noise as people went in and out. That is not the owner's fault. The condo is roomy enough for 4-6 people and has two additional sleeping sofas. The washing machine didn't spin water out of clothes. I called the owner,he came and checked it out and accommodated us by allowing us to not wash and dry the towels before we left. He was not aware the machine did not work prior to our visit. There is a coin washer/dryer at the resort. Owner is very nice to work with and accommodating. Our original reservation was the very weekend of a storm that hit the area, and he allowed us to change the reservation to a couple of days later. It was beautiful weather, perfect weather for the beach. I am glad he did that, because we would have lost two nights' stay; we would not have gone during a potential bad storm. This condo is a reasonable rate. Some are ridiculous with their prices. I will recommend this condo without reservation, and would stay again when in the area.

Owner's Response: I try to treat others as I would like to be treated, but I'm not always perfect, which is evident since I did the cleaning :) The handy man came to fix the washer and now all is well again. I don't have set in stone reservation rules, I'm just a regular guy who knows people want to have a good vacation, and I am happy to flexible for that purpose. I hope all my renters want to come back next year.
