About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Changes in attitudes, changes in latitudes, they say, and that is definitely true of the condominiums available at Pelican Beach Resort. This resort complex in the heart of old Destin is a tropical oasis within walking distance of the city's most popular attractions, restaurants, and shopping. The on-site amenities, including exercise and fitness centers, three adult pools and one kiddie pool, a Jacuzzi, tennis courts, grills, and restaurants on property may entice you to stay close to your unit for the majority of your stay. Of course, the biggest advantage that Pelican Beach Resort properties have is their location- right on the sugar white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

This charming unit sleeps 6 comfortably in two bedrooms and on a sleeper sofa. The unit packs plenty of amenities into 1,100 square feet. The cozy kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals and snacks for your family. Furnished with both a dining room table and a breakfast bar, you can comfortably spread out to enjoy your meals. The living room, equipped with a flat screen TV and a queen sleeper sofa, opens to a large balcony, giving everyone a little more living space and a great view of the beach. Decorated for maximum tropical appeal, the master bedroom, with a king sized bed and private bath boasts a balcony with a view of the inlets of Holiday Isle. The second, smaller bedroom also has a beach view. Both bedrooms have televisions.

Located on the beach, the resort offers guest plenty of amenities, including beach chair and umbrella rentals, kayak and body board rentals, and a game room. During the season, there are two restaurants, including the beach- front Tiki Bar available for guests. Pelican Beach is close to the heart of Destin, and within walking distance of your favorite restaurants and attractions. If you are looking for your own piece of tropical paradise, you'll find it at Pelican Beach.

Wonderful site. Heated pools.

Our 2 bdr condo was in good shape, well set out. However the kitchen area could use an update. Old fridge, stove and dishwasher although all were functioning. Defective hair dryer and toaster

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the condo was at a great location, had a nice beach and amenities. The condo could use some updating and a new pull out couch, was very uncomfortable to sleep on or even sit on to watch TV. Overall a good experience.

Great management not so great unit or beach

  • 2 of 5

I have been to Destin my entire life this is not the worst condo I have stayed in however it NEEDS upgrades for the price we pay it needs to be upgraded. I entered several tickets fo assistance all of which were tended to very quickly. I was impressed by 5star management. The unit was filthy. Dust on the ceiling& floors under the couch (only noticed b/c my son slept on sleeper sofa) broken doors broken drawers mattresses horribly uncomfortable you can FEEL springs! Replace them our backs hurt after a week on that!

Also not enough beach that's not the owners fault but you will be jammed packed fighting for a spot if u like to sit near the water. Or pay $30 a day for chair set up and sweat away from water.

Great job to management, not so great unit and beach overcrowded.. will move on this is our first and last time at Pelican Beach.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. We're so sorry to hear about the state of this condo and how it impacted your trip. Our goal is to provide five star accommodations and service, and we're disappointed we could only live up to one of those expectations. We appreciate you letting us know what needs to be addressed - cleaning and a new mattress are easy places to improve. Sincerely, Bliss Beach Rentals

View was nice. Furniture in the condo needs updated. Couch was pretty worn out and uncomfortable.

  • 3 of 5

Place was pretty dirty when we got there with candy and food under the couches. If you want to be right up on the water when on the beach be prepared to pay $30 a day for rental of chairs and umbrella. The chair rental people will not let you set up past their rentals and they leave no room for people who do not want to rent near the water.

Decent property, very bad rental management

  • 2 of 5

A nice beach front property but the unit itself was a bit run down, dated and needing some TLC. We would have been happy overall with the 2 week rental in January 2017 if not for the property management services by Five Star Beach Properties/Bliss. Their automated iPhone check-in never worked to provide us with the key code so we had to call to get access which needlessly delayed our check-in by a couple of hours. The TV and cable system are dated and we went through 3 universal remotes and two service visits before we could get it to work. The 4' flourescent light fixture in the kitchen would not turn on in most cases so I asked for help in replacing the bulbs or ballast. A maintenance man stopped by to work on it but ended up saying he had to run to the hardware store to get new bulbs, indicating he'd be back in the afternoon. That was Friday. He never came back and no one returned over the weekend so we didn't have a kitchen light until I called again on Monday AM. They said they would have someone call me back. They never did. I called again several hours later and eventually two guys showed up to replace the entire light fixture with the same type of dated light. After several hours of what should have been less than an hour job they left with a new, working flourescent fixture installed. The next morning we awoke to see it hanging down from the ceiling at an angle, held up by one remaining screw. I guess they just lagged it into the drywall when they installed it. They came a half day later to reinstall it again. I gave Five Star/Bliss feedback on the issues via their follow up survey and no one ever responded back. In addition halfway through our stay an incessant low frequency vibration began to throb throughout the unit and felt/heard through a number of floors of the highrise. After a day we called Five Star to inquire what was going on and when would it stop. They never responded back. I don't think they really care about your rental experience or the competence of their people. The vibration lasted 2 1/2 days. Turns out a unit one or two floors below was having the kitchen floor redone and was using some kind of vibrating power tool for the demolition. We couldn't stand to be in the unit for more than 30 minutes while the work was going on. If you like this property in Destin, which seems to be a well run property, I would recommend you rent a unit through someone, anyone else, besides Five Star Property Managem
