About Larry Levine

My family and I have been in the real estate business for decades. My father owned his own Real Estate Company, and is now retired. I am licensed in Real Estate in California. 30 years ago while traveling in Australia, I met my co-owners and we have been great friends ever since. We enjoy vacationing together and offering out our various properties to others around the world to enjoy as well!

Larry Levine purchased this condo in 2012

Why Larry Levine chose Fort Lauderdale

This Boutique Hotel is one of only a few Luxury Resorts located directly on the sand in Ft. Lauderdale. No crossing the A1A 4 lane Highway to get to the beach. It is one of the most well cared for properties, with a beautiful oceanfront restaurant that offers al fresco dining, a bar & grill, business center, fitness center, meeting rooms, a Lazy River pool, an Ice Cream Shoppe, and understated elegance throughout. Perfect for families with children, honeymoon couples, cruise departures, or business travelers. It's close and convenient to the Fort Lauderdale Airport, Port Everglades Cruise Port, and also close to Las Olas Blvd and many other sights and attractions.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy dining while watching the waves crash on the beach, having a cup of coffee in the rocking chairs on the veranda, watching the sunrise over the ocean from our balcony. The staff at The Pelican Grand are the most courteous and friendly you will find anywhere, offering the utmost in guest services.

Pelican Grand Ft Lauderdale Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family of five had a wonderful time at the Pelican Grand. The owner was to quick to communicate the agreement and information on the resort. The unit and property are spotless. The staff is very friendly. My wife and kids loved the pampering. The location is fabulous. The location is in the quieter end of Fort Lauderdale. Not near the beach, but ON THE BEACH. The staff sets up your chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Waiter service is available on the beach. We used the lazy river before hopping in the pool. The staff helped here with towels and setting up chairs. Our unit was large enough to accommodate 5. The front balcony was great for watching the sunrise.

This was by far my worst vacation ever! It was like being in a sci fi movie. Everytime I was talking on my mobile phone in the hotel the call would drop and it was nearly impossible to get a decent wifi connection. The property is outdated and run down and the restaurant food is awful and overpriced. The outdoor swimming pool is very small and not very clean.

The only good thing was that the property was on the beach and they provided lounge chairs. But...there are other nice hotels/resorts that are on the beach as well that are by far superior to this one at a comparable price.

I would not recommend that anyone stay here.

Owner's Response: Kathryn- Your last name should have been annoying instead of noyes! From the moment you arrived all you did was complain! Here is a quote from one of your MANY emails: "Wifi is fine..thanks for explaining. Your unit is fine but unfortunately our daughter and I spent 10 hours in ER yesterday due to food poisoning from fish at the Ocean restaurant on resort property." After speaking to management at the hotel on your behalf several times, it seems ONLY you and your daughter were the ONLY PEOPLE to get food poisoning from the Sunday Brunch which dozens of people also ate at. After many lengthy telephone conversations listening to you as if you had no friends to speak to, I politely listened while you went on ad nauseum. Then you also requested a late check-out. Unfortunately I could not accommodate your request as I had another guest checking in the same day. You chose to lie to the front desk management and told them I had authorized the late check-out, when in fact I had advised you more than once that it was not possible. Trust me, you would NEVER be invited back to any of my vacation rentals that almost 100% of my guests seem to enjoy immensely. I feel very sorry for you.

Ft. Lauderdale Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great time in #626! The balcony has a breathtaking view of the Ft Lauderdale skyline and coastline. We enjoyed the sunrise with our coffee and watching the ships lining up for Port Everglades in the distance. The lazy river was a treat and the zero steps pool and rocking chairs on the veranda were perfect for my 80+ year old mom. The private beach was just the right size, not too big, not too small. The front desk was kind enough to provide us with a wheelchair for my mom when we wanted to walk for dinner.

The room was comfortable. The only thing I would do the next time is bring extra towels (it was kind of a problem with 2 young adult kids). Also, a regular size coffee pot and a toaster would have been nice....but I'm being nitpicky. We really couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. We will try to stay again the next time we're in town. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Joyce- I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed our apartment and all the amenities that The Pelican Grand has to offer. As we are a privately owned condo, there is no daily maidservice included in the quote. However, you are always able to request a visit from housekeeping at extra charge to get fresh towels, or use the towels from the beach and pool kiosks which you can get fresh daily. I'm also glad that the front desk was able to accommodate your mother to get around.

Once again an awesome stay in Larry's condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in Larry's condo at the Pelican Grand twice and both times have been great. We can't say enough about this condo. The view is perfect and the room itself is very comfortable. We loved the addition of the blender. We had frozen drinks on the balcony while watching the waves come in. Larry is awesome to work with. We had a few slight changes in our dates and he accommodated us with out hesitation. We will be back again. Thank you Larry, your condo made it a wonderful birthday trip.

Owner's Response: Hi Betty- Happy Belated Birthday! I'm glad that you were able to celebrate in our condo, and put the new blender to good use! That's exactly what I had intended, make your own frozen drinks instead of buying the more expensive ones at the bar. You're a fantastic guest, and hope to have a long working relationship with you.

We are regular guests at the Pelican Grand and usually book our stays through the hotel. This was our 1st experience to book through the VRBO HomeAway membership. We are so pleased we did. The room was clean and welcoming. The patio and view was the highlight of our stay this unit - has one of the best - as we watched the sunrise over the ocean and in the evening the City lights along A-1-A. We always enjoy our stay at the Pelican the room made our stay that much more enjoyable. We look forward to staying again at this property. Leanne D.

My parents loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My sons and I stayed at PGBR in December 2015. I was so impressed with the place that I wanted to share it with my parents. So for Christmas I gave them a trip as a present. My Mother said it was the nicest place she had ever stayed. Thanks Larry, great job once again!
