4BR, 2BA home in Gated Neighborhood, Near Beach
It's time to kick off your shoes, relax and get away from everyday. And The Pelican's Elbow is the vacation home to help you do just that. It has everything you need for that relaxing week at the seashore, including a large private swimming pool and patio - great for morning coffee instead of a morning commute. The pool is all yours - no sharing with the neighborhood or a condo association. And it's handy, right out the back door, no expeditions necessary.
The Pelican's Elbow is pet friendly, so there's no need to leave your pet in a kennel or with the neighbors for a week.
So, don't be crammed into a cramped condo. This beautiful home with its nautical decor, largest in the neighborhood, is perfect for large families or groups. You have room to stretch out (2020 square feet), with a large living room, four bedrooms, two baths, a spacious family room, full kitchen and full laundry room.
The home features top quality memory foam mattresses in all bedrooms to ensure a great night's sleep, porcelain tile floors and flat screen HD TVs throughout.
The large master bedroom features a king size bed, HDTV, VCR/DVD, and private bath. The Kahuna and Palm bedrooms both have queen beds, HDTVs, DVD players and alarm clocks just in case you don't want to sleep in some morning. The Twin bedroom features two twin beds and HDTV with VCR/DVD player. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan. There are two queen sleeper sofas in separate living/family rooms.
The large back yard is fenced for privacy and security and features a large private L-shaped swimming pool (28-1/2 ft long by 9-13 ft wide) and tropical landscaping. You have a gas grill and picnic table/umbrella on the patio.
At the end of a great day in the sun you can enjoy the spacious family room with 46" flat screen cable HDTV, DVD player, selection of books, more than 175 videos (many of them kid's videos), and family games. Wireless Internet is provided.
Kick back, soak up some sun and work on your tan (or lounge in the shade) and enjoy life at The Pelican's Elbow.

About Ronald Larsen
This property is managed and maintained by the owner. I try to provide everything you need for your beach vacation. I live in the Destin area and am on call if any problems arise. I take pride in this property and work hard to make it an enjoyable, clean, well-maintained vacation location.
Ronald Larsen purchased this House in 2005
Why Ronald Larsen chose Miramar Beach
The Pelican's Elbow is a beautiful, well maintained home in a gated beach community. Destin is a family-oriented beach vacation destination, with one of the nicest white sand beaches in the country. Our area has a small-town feel, with lots of shopping and entertainment.
What makes this House unique
The Pelican's Elbow has one of the largest private pools in the community, in a fenced-in back yard. The pool is 'L-shaped,' 28-1/2 feet long by 9-13 feet wide (not heated). Best of all, the pool is all yours – no sharing with the neighborhood or a condo association. Perhaps you are back from an afternoon at the beach, or it’s after dinner – the pool is a great place for the kids (and adults) to enjoy themselves without the need to organize an expedition. You'll have a nice patio beside the pool with a picnic table and gas grill. And there is a good size fenced back yard with several trees (banana, pomegranate) and tropical landscaping. After a long day of enjoying yourself, get a great night's sleep on the top quality memory foam mattresses throughout the home.

Thanks. I'm pleased that you enjoyed the home and your stay in Destin.
Excellent!!! Mr. Ron was wonderful. The house was spacious, very clean, comfortable and felt homey
We absolutely loved that beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and wagon were provided with the home for our use. The floor plan was perfect for our multi-generational family. Also, we loved the shaded private pool in the afternoons after top much sun at the beach. We had initially planned to have 5 adults, 2 children, and 1 dog but ended up having 3 additional children for a couple nights during our stay. We did not feel the least bit overcrowded. We would love to stay there again and were blessed with perfect weather everyday of our stay...Oh and I must add the grill and abundance of large pots and pans were a huge plus!
The house was exceptionally clean and was stocked with cookware and linens. Ron was very helpful with his suggestions for places to see visit in the area. I would definitely rent again.
The house was a wonderful retreat. Loved the area. Ron was a great host and provided all the information we needed to make our stay a great one.
