This was definitely a home away from home. Just bring your clothes and you're ready to go! My family stayed at Pelican Haven in June of 2014 and we were pleased that it had all of the amenities we needed, was exceptionally clean for a rental, and the owners were very gracious and accommodated our needs! We had a scheduling conflict with the original booked date and they allowed us to reschedule to another open block of time without any hassle at all. The property does not have any steps from the private driveway into the house and is an open format, so it is very accessible. The two bedrooms have very comfortable beds and nice closets and dressers. The bathrooms are clean and shower has great water pressure with detachable hand held shower head (for little kids who are sandy from the beach). The kitchen contains everything you need for cooking meals when you dine in and service for 6 or 8 people (bowls, cups, plates, silverware) plus pots, pans, strainers, and serving utensils. The owners have labeled all cabinets and drawers to help guests return any items to the proper spot (which came in very handy when unloading dishwasher or washing/restocking towels and sheets!). The shed has bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, sand buckets and many other things for guest use so you don't have to spend your money on them or haul them from home! The house is located just across Hwy 98. It is less than a 5 minute walk and has direct boardwalk beach access directly across the road. It really is the most convenient, clean, and well appointed property that we have found in the area for this price. Andy and Linda Cave were awesome to work with - very friendly and helpful and responded quickly. We will definitely choose Pelican Haven when we come back to St. Joe Beach!
