PELICAN GRAND-RIGHT ON OCEAN! 2 QUEEN BEDS - BEST UNIT IN THE RESORT !!

Fort Lauderdale Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Thank you so much for considering our unit at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort.

Steve and I purchased our rental in mid 2011, and have enjoyed spending family time at the resort with our children and grand kids.

*******************************************************************

Each year, we continue to make more and more updates to make your vacation experience the best it can be.

Some of the differences you'll find between our room and others (both the privately or resort owned units) are:

- Leather Lazy Boy couch, with recliners on both ends. (All other units have either the old original or recovered sofa, not anywhere near as comfy.)

- New Lazy Boy Loveseat, with a pull out twin bed. (All other units have either the original or recovered loveseat.)

- Two 46 inch flat screen TVs (for units like ours, the resort offers one 42 inch flat screen and another very large old standard hotel unit)

- Larger compact fridge (just replaced the small original 2 cubic foot compact fridge with a 4.4 cubic foot model)

- Larger microwave (just replaced the smaller original unit with a high end convection model)

- Better lighting (lights added to ceiling fans in both bedroom and den area)

- More seating/better chairs (got rid of two old rattan chairs and replaced with four smaller chairs)

- Plus, plus, plus more....

The reason for all the above differences is we really want our unit at the Pelican to feel like home for us and for our guests. I think we've met our goal.

*******************************************************************

The Pelican Grand Beach Resort is a Four Star Resort, located directly on the beach in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The oceanfront resort is situated on 500 feet of sandy beach, perfect for tanning and swimming. The property is one of only two resort/hotels in Fort Lauderdale located directly on the ocean, as almost all other hotels/resorts are located across A1A.

From our 5th floor unit, the view is amazing. You can sit on the private balcony, look out over the water and hear the sounds of waves crashing onto the shore.

• Couples for a Romantic Getaway, featuring Private Room with Private Balcony, Oceanside Veranda, Private Beach, Upscale Bar/Lounge, and Rooftop Patio

The resort requires that you are at least 21 years of age and have a valid credit card to check in.

Check-in 4:00pm, Check-out 11:00am

FEES:

o Valet parking: If you have a car, the resort charges $30/day, plus 11% tax, with in-and-out privileges. Unfortunately, there is no other alternative for parking in the area; however, there is taxi service and a city bus line that runs right outside the resort.

o Housecleaning: $75 Check-out Cleaning fee, plus 11% tax is required. If you wish to have additional cleaning during your visit, the resort changes $35 per occurrence, plus 11% tax. You must request optional housecleaning when you check in if you want your room cleaned and the Consumable Supplies replaced by the Resort staff during your stay. If you do not request optional housecleaning, there will be no replenishment of Consumable Supplies (for example, toilet paper, Kleenex, shampoo, conditioner, soap, coffee, cups, clean towels, etc.) during your stay.

o Internet Access: Effective January 23, 2014, the Pelican Grand began charging for Internet access for all privately owned units. The new policy is to charge $19.95 per day per device, plus 11% tax. This seems very high to us, but they claim this is consistent with pricing at other hotels in the area. As an alternative, we suggest you use the personal hotspots that are available on most smart phones as a more economical alternative to signing into the Pelican WIFI. Go to ‘settings’ on your phone and turn on the ‘hotspot’ button. It should show you the name of your phone’s network and the password for you to use on your other devices to hook up. Then go to wireless connections on your laptop, select the name of your phone’s network and enter the password. You can enter multiple devices at the same time on your hotspot network, i.e. I-pads and computers. Please note that if you use this to watch movies or other high data uses, you will want to keep an eye on your service provider’s data limit.

We are a retired couple from Iowa who miss the ocean. When we first saw the Pelican Grand, we fell in love and knew we wanted to spend more time there.

Sue Morrison purchased this condo in 2011

The view!!! Being able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner looking out over the ocean. Enjoying a cocktail on the private balcony.

Short car ride to many fantastic restaurants, night clubs and shopping areas.

Close to cruise terminals of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Wonderful condo right on the beach.

We recently stayed in this unit for a long weekend. There are 2 very comfortable queen beds and a pullout(which we did not use.) Loved having a coffee maker and a microwave. Also loved the balcony and spent several hours enjoying the view. Check in and out was very smooth. The hotel was wonderful. Loved the rocking chairs lined up on the deck. Had lunch at the hotel several times but went out for dinner. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

We were looking for a great relaxing getaway, with a view of the ocean (we were right on it!) and a nice place to stay. The owners were very responsive to our questions and the description of the property was right on. Clean, well maintained, had everything that we needed. Truly enjoyed staying at the resort, the staff was very attentive, the beach was great, wish I was sitting on the beach right now under the umbrella!

Fabulous Vacation Location !!

We recently enjoyed a terrific two week stint at the condo unit at the Pelican Grand. What an absolutely wonderful time. The unit is very nice and well maintained with an outstanding balcony view of the Atlantic. The beach and swimming was first rate. The personnel at the Pelican were very warm and helpful. We also liked the location as we were able to walk or have a short drive to many restaurants / shopping spots. Thanks for everything. We would strongly consider returning to this location. Best spot we have had since we started our annual trips to Florida four years ago.

We had a wonderful time and the weather was awesome, didn't even get to the Galleria because the sun never went in (that has never happened on a vacation before). Then home to an arctic front and I just can't seem to warm up!!!

512 was very nice and especially liked the new sofa recliner, it reminded us of home! Would love to keep in touch and would definitely visit again, let us know when next years calendar is available.
