About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Updated kitchen, sleeps 8, amazing views, laundry in condo

Beautiful, designer owned, luxury condo at the Pelican Beach Resort in the Terrace Bldg. Steps to the Beach, featuring a large balcony to enjoy spectacular views of the ocean, lake and sunsets. Resort amenities include 3 Pools, 2 spas, 2 workout rooms, tennis courts, conference rooms, Chans Deli & Market, Beachside Tiki hut and sundeck. Last year Southern Living Magazine Readers Poll rated our Beach as one of the top 3 most beautiful beaches in the United States. The Resort is located on the beach side of Highway 98 across from Big Kahunas Waterpark, putt-putt and track. Within 2 miles, you'll find the Harbor where you can enjoy waterfront dining, live music, fishing charters, boat and wave runner rentals and all new Harborwalk Entertainment Complex including, Harry T's, Crab Island Cantina, shopping & family activities. One mile East, is the famous Back Porch, The Track & Putt Putt. Brand new to this website, we have many repeat renters and excellent reviews in our guest book

An awesome Family Destination.: Our family has been vacationing in Destin for 8 years now and there is no place like it. The 5 of us enjoy the beach, the more private Terrace Pool, going to Fishermans Wharf at the harbor for family fishing charters and walking the docks around 2 to see what all the fishing charters are bringing in for the days catch. It truly is the Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village. We stroll down the docks to AJ's on the harbor where the live music starts at 5pm every day and enjoy some fresh seafood. Another family favorite is walking east on the beach to the Back Porch for lunch. The bronzed AmberJack is always great! There are Kayak rentals, parasailing, and beach chairs and umbrellas to rent on the Beach. At times the ocean is so still & crystal clear you can see a freckle on your toe in waist deep water. Other times the surf comes roaring in and then the waves are perfect for boogie boarding. Everyday is a new day, but each one holds uncompromised beauty. The sunsets are second to none!

Dining Galore!: The dining oppertunites are endless. For Beachfront casual we like Poppys or you can walk right off the beach in your flip flops, sand in your toes to the Back Porch. For Beachfront elegant the Inn at Crystal Beach. I love to sneak off with just my husband or a girlfriend for lunch when the prices are lower and the food is a 10. No trip would be complete without an evening at Baytowne Village on the Bay. Lots of restaurants, shops, live music and family activities. Also do not miss the New Harborwalk entertainment complex on the harbor with shops, fly overs and family dining at Harry T's, Poppys, Dewey Destin,and The Shed jjust to name a few. The Winn Dixie grocery is right across the street as well as Another Broken Egg breakfast resteraunt. , A Fresh Market is a few miles east and there is a Publix east by the Bay bridge. Fresh seafood at Sextons. If you love sushi you must go to the Hibatchi grill at Harbor Docks, ultra casual, the best Sushi, and on the harbor. Biggest steak & best ribs are at McQuires.

Great Location, Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Destin has the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The Terrace is close to everything, the harbor, restaurants, shopping, fresh fish markets, Big Kahunas, the perfect family place and get away for adults. Great pool, new grills, work out room, onsite deli, beach side tiki bar, and beach service during season. The condo itself was wonderful, clean, well equipped with a large balcony to view the fantastic sunsets. We will be back!

#1 UNIT!!!- having 3BR/2Full Baths is perfect for our family, nicely decorated. Love the location, walk to shopping, grocery, Mellow Mushroom, BEACH (without crossing a street). The scenery is breath-taking especially at night. The view from the balcony shows nicely lite fountains in the lake in the foreground, and beautiful homes. I would highly recommend this unit. The owners are wonderful people, great customer service. Lots of amenities, fishing, ocean kayaking, boating, swimming (pools (2) and/or ocean). Beach location is great - we love to walk on the beach to the Back Porch restaurant for lunch/and(or) cocktails.Enjoy your stay, we have stayed there many times:)

Very nice family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

The Pelican Beach Resort is a very nice family vacation spot. The only hick-up we had was that we had to wait 1-1/2 hours before we could check in. It was a little inconvenient after having driven over 5 hours to the resort. We stayed in the Terrace unit which was furthest from the beach but shuttles were readily available to take us to and from the beach. The resort had every amenity to make our visit comfortable and is conveniently located to practically everything such as shopping, water parks, boating, parasailing, movies, gyms, kids activities and more. We will definitely recommend the Pelican Beach Resort to family and friends.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Just retuned from a wonderful Destin vacation with my family. Our stay at the Terrace at the Pelican Resort was so great. The condo was beautiful, comfortable, spacious, well maintained and the view was awesome. Hot tubs, pools and a private beach - who could ask for more? I wish we could have stayed longer.

About Cindy Crawford

Mike and I are from Cincinnati Ohio. We brought our 3 sons here in 1999. It is a magical place filled with years of memories. Cant wait to someday bring the grandkids to build sand castles. We have traveled all over the U.S. and seen many beaches, but Destin is near and dear to our hearts. Its about an eleven hour drive but very doable in a day and always worth it.

Cindy Crawford purchased this condo in 2003

Why Cindy Crawford chose Destin

Once you visit with us, you will know why. Wonderful! After 10 years we have never found a better resort or location. Everything about the Pelican Beach Resort is just what we wanted in a beach getaway. When we purchased the condo we had 3 teenaged sons and there is a water park, go-carts and putt putt within walking distance. Shopping, restaurants and entertainment options are conveniently located to the Pelican.

What makes this condo unique

Location can't be beat. Steps from the most beautiful beach in the U.S. Having morning coffee on the balcony with an ocean view.

The sunsets from the balcony are the most spectacular I've ever seen, especially in the Fall. The amenities of the resort, 3 pools, 2 spa tubs, tennis courts, a Deli, a market on the property, Tiki Hut for beach beverages, beach service. Awesome.
