Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Thank you so much for considering our unit at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort.

Steve and I purchased our rental in mid 2011, and have enjoyed spending family time at the resort with our children and grand kids.

*******************************************************************

Each year, we continue to make more and more updates to make your vacation experience the best it can be.

Some of the differences you'll find between our room and others (both the privately or resort owned units) are:

- Leather Lazy Boy couch, with recliners on both ends. (All other units have either the old original or recovered sofa, not anywhere near as comfy.)

- New Lazy Boy Loveseat, with a pull out twin bed. (All other units have either the original or recovered loveseat.)

- Two 46 inch flat screen TVs (for units like ours, the resort offers one 42 inch flat screen and another very large old standard hotel unit)

- Larger compact fridge (just replaced the small original 2 cubic foot compact fridge with a 4.4 cubic foot model)

- Larger microwave (just replaced the smaller original unit with a high end convection model)

- Better lighting (lights added to ceiling fans in both bedroom and den area)

- More seating/better chairs (got rid of two old rattan chairs and replaced with four smaller chairs)

- Plus, plus, plus more....

The reason for all the above differences is we really want our unit at the Pelican to feel like home for us and for our guests. I think we've met our goal.

*******************************************************************

About Sue Morrison

We are a retired couple from Iowa who miss the ocean. When we first saw the Pelican Grand, we fell in love and knew we wanted to spend more time there.

Sue Morrison purchased this condo in 2011

Why Sue Morrison chose Fort Lauderdale

The view!!! Being able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner looking out over the ocean. Enjoying a cocktail on the private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Short car ride to many fantastic restaurants, night clubs and shopping areas.

Close to cruise terminals of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a delightful time in room #512! The view was awesome and the accommodations were just right for our family at this time. Unfortunately our flight on 12/25 was canceled and we did not arrive until the afternoon of the 26th. We had planned to explore a bit more but instead stayed mostly at the resort.



We have never traveled before during the Christmas holiday. The hotel seemed to be a bit understaffed but we never had to wait for a table or food. The challenge seemed more to be around the towel situation at the pool and beach as well as accommodating stressed visitors with enough beach due to higher than usual high tides! In the midst of it all, the staff was unbelievably kind and pleasant!



I will sign up to your Facebook page and look forward to another opportunity to visit Ft. Lauderdale again!



Happy New Year!

Great view & excellent unit at Pelican Grand

  • 5 of 5

Nice oceanfront accommodations. We liked the fact that you could close the door and blinds to the living room space so that those wanting to stay up and watch TV could be completely separate from the bedroom area. Lovely resort on the beach. Owners were helpful and easy to work with when arranging the rental.

Truly is the best property in the place!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this room a few years back and it wasn't until we booked other rooms at the Pelican did we realize how special this particular unit is. The owners take great pride in their property and have made some updates to the standard decorating you see in other rooms. The bedding, new leather couches in the sitting room, even the bathroom fixtures have been maintained so well that everything appears new and in great condition. The unit is also always impeccably clean and comfortable and the food is so good you never have to leave the property. I love staying here - the ocean view is spectacular to wake up to. Just a few days here provides a rejuvenating escape and a luxurious treat that I recommend to all my friends. I will always request this unit in the future. Kudos to the owners!! Thank you Sue.

Best Beach Front Luxury

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented unit 512 twice. The unit itself is extremely well located, comfortable and outstandingly furnished with a balcony overlooking the beach and Atlantic ocean. The staff at the Pelican Grand are very professional, helpful and courteous. The hotel's food and drink are exceedingly good. We plan to go back.
