It was easy and the unit was updated and very clean. It was also very convenient being near the elevators and laundry mat. The owner was very prompt on answering my...

My wife and I and her sister stayed at a two bedroom condo over the fourth of July. We really enjoyed the stay as the rooms were very clean, the beds comfortable and the convenience of having a refrigerator, microwave, stove, washer and dryer etc were fantastic. The view of the gulf was also great. I really liked the fact...

Horrible, dated facility! Room had popcorn low ceilings, brass fixtures, Formica, white appliances & bedding & furniture from the early 1980's. But the very worst part is the beach! Horribly crowded & the property lines are TAPED OFF WITH CAUTION TAPE on BOTH sides!! Feel like the ugly stepchildren of Destin visitors!! Umbrellas are 12 deep to the ocean. They...

Family vacation for week. Condo on south west corner mid floors. Awesome view of beach and gulf. Nothing bad to say. It's not a private hotel and beach. Going to have issues anywhere. Water was beautiful. Can't say much about the beach Saturday morning. Low life people not responsible and trashing beach night before. But what can you expect with...

We stayed on the 20th floor. The room was well planned and spacious. The view from the balcony was outstanding, we spent several evenings with popcorn and wine on the balcony. We had a most relaxing vacation, lounging on the beach, reading books, playing in the water, and in general just relaxing. The restaurants in the area are excellent and...

Our family stayed in beachfront unit 0205 at Pelican Beach in June 2014. Awesome! The reviews on this site about the beach being too crowded were over-dramatic. The decor in our unit was updated.
