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.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Sue,



We had a great time staying in your unit. Definitely a 5 star experience. I don't have a VRBO account but feel free to post this review:



The room was very well maintained and spacious. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The resort itself was fantastic. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. The pool was great and being directly on the beach was a nice perk. Would definitely stay here again!



Thanks!

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.

Excellent unit on the 5th floor facing the ocean. You can hear the waves gently lap on shore. Other area hotels have to cross a street to in order to get to the beach - not Pelican Grand, which is exactly as the photo indicates. Unit is very clean/up-dated. We will definitely stay here again. Good jogging/walking path along the beach. A+ vacation time.

PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was absolutely amazing! The condo was comfy while still having the beachy feel! The condo is literally on on the ocean, this is the closest I've ever been. The owner provided all all the details I needed and some some tips for the area as as well. The hotel is also beautiful and close enough enough to do things but without the craziness of being in the middle of the busy area. We definitely recommend using this condo and are already saving for our next trip!! Thanks Sue!

OUR FIRST FLORIDA VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This room is perfect! Exactly how described. Everything from check in to check out was smooth. I took my wife and 4 small kids and had plenty of room. The view from this room is beautiful! The price very reasonable. We rented a car to go site seeing and the valet was very quick and nice. Also opted to pay the resort for housekeeping and that was also perfect... I can't say enough. Also communication between myself and the owners of this room was excellent! Thank you Again! I look forward to coming back soon.

DELIGHTFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
Property is nicely located at the north end of Fort Lauderdale beach. All of the staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful and the owner of the unit was great to work with. The unit is ideally situated in the middle of the resort with a wonderful beach view and comfortable furnishings. We would definitely stay again.

KRISTIN W. FROM BUFFALO, NY

The condo was terrific! I was there with my 10 and 6 year old and my husband and 13 year old joined us later in the week. The beds were very comfortable and the amenities were fabulous. Plenty of room for a family of 5. The beach and pools were lovely and the hotel service with towels, chairs, umbrellas was terrific. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The kids and I really enjoyed ourselves and especially enjoyed the ice cream parlor. it was a great location and close to a lot of places of interest. There were some activities planned for the kids at the Hotel for Easter which was nice too. Thank you for a great vacation!
