About the property

4th Floor Waterfront Condo Unit With Both Ocean And Bay Views

Pelican 406’s owner deep cleaned this unit and spent over ten thousand dollars a few years ago extensively upgrading it with beautiful new porcelain tile flooring, wonderfully charming wainscoting, stunning Doah Turkish area rugs, lovely kitchen back splash, custom painting throughout, living room furniture, side-by-side refrigerator with front ice / water dispenser, dining area upholstery, two flat screen TVs, two DVD Players, Caribbean-origin hand carved and hand painted decorative woodwork, and numerous other decorative greenery and accessory furnishings. This property is a well-appointed and thoughtfully decorated 4th floor condo unit that offers a master bedroom suite with king size bed and private full bathroom; a bunk area alcove with a set of twin bunk beds and a second full guest bathroom; a fully equipped kitchen with all cookware, dinnerware, and silverware; a spacious living area with all creature comforts; and a laundry closet with washer and dryer. The living room offers a queen sleeper sofa to accommodate two additional guests as desired. Seating for four is available at the dining room table, with additional seating available at the kitchen breakfast bar.

Pelican 406 comfortably sleeps six and offers all the comforts of home, including updated furnishings; fully tiled floors; ceiling fans and area rugs in the master bedroom and living room; extra linens and bedding; iron and ironing board; laundry basket; hair dryer; dishwasher; garbage disposal; all major appliances; minor appliances including coffee maker, toaster, blender, electric mixer, and electric can opener; free cable television; free Wi-Fi and broadband internet access; free local and toll free telephone service; radio / CD player; flat screen TVs with DVD players in the master bedroom and living area; board games; playing cards; books; sliding glass door lock to ensure child safety; beach toys, small cooler, beach umbrella, and beach chairs; and vacuum.

The master bedroom has a great view of the Emerald Coast! Additionally, from the comfortable living area, you can open your floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and experience magnificent and expansive 4th floor views of the peaceful Choctawhatchee Bay and the Lazy River lush tropical landscaping and Pool Deck area from your tiled and covered private balcony. Our signature 700-foot-long Lazy River Lagoon Pool, which travels around three pools (one of which is heated and includes a waterfall) and two heated luxury whirlpool SPAs, is the most popular attraction on our property. It is equipped with fiber optic lighting that makes for a truly entertaining and enjoyable evening experience. The Bayside greenery area has numerous charming outdoor grilling areas, rinse showers, and a spectacular Bayside walk way along the serene Choctawhatchee Bay. Our ground floor lobby on-site rental management office is available for your every need, to include express check in / check out; unit maintenance calls; beach chair, beach umbrella, boogie board, YOLO paddleboard, wave runner, and kayak rental assistance; and assistance with arrangements such as dinner reservations or airport transportation.

A convenient and exclusive use Destin West Sky Bridge over Highway 98 provides safe and secure access between the Bayside and Gulfside resort areas. Pelican 406 is located within feet of an elevator for quick and easy access, and it is within mere minutes of the Sky Bridge which allows guests to more conveniently enjoy all amenities of Destin West Gulfside.

We invite you to thoroughly enjoy our Award Winning Destin West Beach to Bay Resort, located in a great location on the very relaxed and serene Okaloosa Island, but with convenient access within just minutes to all Destin has to offer as well.

Watch the dolphins play, enjoy viewing the water traffic, or simply take in the beauty of the clear emerald green waters year around with an average temperature of 67.2 degrees and 343 sunny days each year. Our resort offers Winter Guest Programs and is very child-friendly with our free summer-time Children’s Activities Programs, including poolside twister, sandcastle building, Jell-O slurping, pool games, arts and crafts, story time, face painting, water sports, and the new and very popular Dive-In Movies at the Lazy River Pool area.

Beautiful condominium, wonderful resort. I would highly recommend this resort as well as condo 406.

  • 5 of 5

Owner of property was very responsive and helpful. Property was everything and more than we expected. Would highly recommend to anyone, and if god willing, we'll definitely be staying again in the future. The only negative if I can say it was a negative was that 406 could use a little more closet space but other than that, P406 was an amazing location along the beach and the resort was incredible.

Very conveniently located! If you are taking children the pools a perfect, & beach across the street

  • 4 of 5

Condo is perfect for a couple adults and a few children. The condo gym is huge, beach is literally across the street (must take a few elevators to get there), & the pools are perfect for Adults & children. The Owner himself is quick to respond with any questions or concerns which is a shock to get such wonderful service!

Very nice resort very clean and felt safe!

  • 4 of 5

Condo unit was nice great view of pool and bay easy access to cross over to the beach side not a bad walk at all. Beach was clean liked the pier so close and boardwalknice to be able to have a drink or a meal in your bating suits :) was nice to be in walking distance to them. Liked staying a short drive from downtown Destin our area isn't as commercialized as that area is. Dunes are spectacular!! Can't wait to come back!!
