Enjoy your oceanfront condo with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico! This unit has the biggest balcony available at Pelican Beach -complete with dining table and 4 chairs. Here you can enjoy your morning coffee while you admire the sunrise over the gorgeous water of the Emerald Coast!

Our Guest bedroom features a queen size bed, flat screen TV/DVD, Westerly sunset view and attached bath. This unit also has a washer and dryer INSIDE the unit which makes it very convenient.

**I also pay my cleaning service to do a “deep clean” between all renters. All bedding(quilts, mattress covers, pillows, etc ) are washed – not just the sheets. ( I hate it when I go to a hotel and the first thing I do is pull off the duvet cover because I know they don’t wash it every time!) :(

This condo has the "Deluxe Plus" rating for Pelican Beach Rentals. Fireworks that are are shot off weekly over the Destin Harbor can be viewed from your front balcony! Conveniently situated in the Heart of Destin across the street from the BIG KAHUNA Water Park. SECURITY GUARD at entrance, COVERED parking, two tennis courts, movie rentals, game room, cafe, BBQ area and kiddie pool.

Theme parks, numerous golf courses, excellent restaurants, and shopping are all just minutes away.The condo features a keyless entry- no key to pick up or send back and forth, and no key to worry about losing at the beach. Enjoy the Southeast's most beautiful beachs and all the resort amenities that Pelican Beach has to offer!!


Spring Break timeframe 3/9-4/8 the resort charges an additional $10 per day for additional security. ( I as the owner will cover that cost) This means that they give out wristbands and have additional security personal to make sure that only resort guests are allowed on property to use resort amenities. It is for the benefit of the guests to make sure that everything is 5* during this increased peak time in Destin.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

Pelican Beach Resort #813 was immaculate upon our arrival. It was beautifully decorated with lots of nice touches--like a "welcome" bottle of wine and a flavored water for our grandchild. #813 was spacious enough for the five of us (one under 10 years). The kitchen was great with everything we needed--although we didn't cook a lot. The beach is literally out the back door of the building. The rental for two chairs and one umbrella is $30.00--very reasonable. The pools were also quite nice. The lobby and the staff were exceptional. Anita has to be the most patient person I've ever dealt with. She made our stay very pleasant and we thank her very sweetly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at the beach. I try very hard to be a "hands on" owner and to make sure that everything is perfect for guests when they arrive. We would welcome your wonderful family back to our beach condo anytime!

Wow! Amazing Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect for my family's stay. It had all of the comforts of home while being directly on the beach. Anita was an amazing host. She made sure that we had everything that we needed before arriving and even thought to leave us a bottle of wine to enjoy on the balcony. Overall, we would love to return and stay here any time that we come to Destin!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo and the proximity to the beach. We didn't hang out at the pool because we can do that back in Colorado, but we had the view of it in the evening. The sand was soooo beautiful and soft!! Restaurants in town were fairly close, we enjoyed going down to the harbor and checking out the bars and restaurants down there as well. Overall, fun and relaxing weekend away!

About Anita Smith

My husband and I have 3 grown kiddos and have just recently retired from the military after a great 24 years of service. We were stationed all over the world and had some fantastic adventures but fell in love with the sugary white beaches of Destin! We decided to buy a condo on the beach to share with family and friends! When we are not using the condo for personal time, we are happy to rent it out to share the great beaches of the Emerald Coast with other families!

Anita Smith purchased this condo in 2017

Why Anita Smith chose Destin

I know that when I vacation, staying in a really nice place is as important to me as the location. I don't like it when it looks like the rental places have left over furniture and old linens in it. :( So, we have renovated the condo from top to bottom to make sure that this is a place people would LOVE to relax in after a full day at the beach. New linens, bedding, furniture--everything is brand new and updated!! We have complimentary beach chairs and toys- so you can head right down to the beach and start your vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We looked at many, many condos before buying this one. The location is perfect! Right in the heart of Destin, so you can actually walk to quite a few of the restaurants and entertainment hot spots. Also being a "full service" resort- means that you have free access to amenities that the other condos in the area don't. 3 pools, full gym, tennis courts, movie rentals, hot tub, sun deck, cafe, on site convenience store, security, outdoor grill area and picnic pavilion, tiki bar--

We also purposely chose our unit as the great views it has of the weekly fireworks! Every week a fantastic fireworks display is shot off over the harbor which can be viewed perfectly from the front balcony of our condo! No need to drive over there, grab your glass of wine (or sodas and popcorn for the kids) and watch the show!! We as owners, also live in the area, so we are available for any questions or needs that may arise. We know you will enjoy the condo as much as we do...
