Property Details

Updated: Sep 25, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 12 Sleeps

It's time to kick off your shoes, relax and get away from everyday.

And The Pelican's Elbow in Destin is the vacation home to help you

do just that. It has everything you need for that relaxing week at

the seashore, including a large private swimming pool and patio -

great for morning coffee instead of a morning commute.

You’ll have a spacious fenced back yard for privacy and security,

with tropical landscaping and your own swimming pool, the largest

in the neighborhood. The pool is "L-shaped," 28'1/2 feet long by

9-13 feet wide. Best of all, the pool is all yours – no sharing with

the neighborhood or a condo association. Perhaps you are back

from an afternoon at the beach, or it’s after dinner – the pool is

a great place for the kids (and adults) to enjoy themselves

without the need to organize an expedition other than out the

back door.

The home is located on a quiet street in a private gated community,

less than 3 blocks from the beach.

The Pelican's Elbow is pet-friendly, so your pet can also enjoy the

family vacation.

Don't be crammed into a cramped condo. This beautiful home with its

nautical decor is perfect for large families or groups. You have

room to stretch out -- 2020 sq. feet (largest floor plan in the

neighborhood) -- with large living/dining room, four bedrooms and

two baths, full kitchen, a spacious family room and laundry room with

full-size washer and dryer.

All bedrooms and baths are on a single floor - no stairs to deal with.

We've recently upgraded with memory foam mattresses and pillows

on every bed, porcelain tile floors, and more.

The spacious Master bedroom features a king size bed, flat screen

HDTV/VCR/DVD,a private bath with soaker tub and shower and a huge

closet. The Kahuna and Palm Bedrooms both have queen beds, HDTVs,

DVD players, and alarm clocks just in case you don't want to sleep in

some morning. The Twin bedroom features two twin beds and HDTV

with a VCR/DVD player. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan.

There are queen sleeper sofas in separate living and family rooms.

Two Pack-N-Play type cribs and a single rollaway bed are available.

The white-sugar-sand beach is a short stroll away and dining,

shopping and amusements are close at hand. You can swim with

dolphins, cruise the Gulf, parasail, jetski, kayak or partake in any

of dozens of other nearby activities.

At the end of a great day in the sun, you can enjoy the family room

with high-definition TV/VCR/DVD and selection of books, more than

150 videos (including 40+ kid's movies), and family games. Free

high-speed Internet is provided.

Kick back, soak up some sun and work on your tan (or lounge in the

shade) and enjoy life at the Pelican's Elbow.

No Smoking.

Lovely Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5
We just returned from our stay at The Pelican's Elbow. It was wonderful. There were 7 of us and we all fit nicely. The rooms were a good size with ample closet space and amazing bedding. The beach was just a short walk away and if there is someone who isn't up for the walk, there is always the amazing pool. You aren't far from much of anything. There are lots of amazing restaurants near by and Ronald gives you a run down on them. Seriously, the notebook he provides is amazing - take the time to read it. Ronald was very nice and helpful.

The only thing we thought was odd, not really a complaint, was that paper products weren't provided. You have to buy your own paper towels and toilet paper. Because everything else is provided that just stood out as strange. We would have rather been charged another $20 and had them provided.

Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Amazing Home!

What a fabulous home! We had a wonderful time staying in this house. It is very spacious, well equipped and has an great pool in the backyard. My kids loved swimming in it. A quick walk and you are on a gorgeous beach. Ronald is a great owner and gave us so many fabulous ideas for sightseeing and eating. Walked to Pompano Joe's one night and had a great meal.
Any questions were easily answered by Ronald. I would not hesitate to stay here at Pelican's Elbow again! Great home!

Absolutely loved this place. The photos of the house do not do it justice. Beautiful inside and out. We did not want to leave. The grand kids enjoyed all the games and videos. I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you for your hospitality. The Summers Family

We had an awesome time here at Pelican's Elbow.The house was much larger than we expected and well equipped.It was only a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches that we have seen in our travels. Close to many shopping malls, restaurants,and different forms of entertainment. Ron,the owner was always very helpful and friendly.

This location is a diamond in the rough. The home was such a warm and comfortable setting. Everything to provide you an awesome experience on vacation was there. Ron ensures any and everything to keep your stay delightful is provided. This is the perfect place for short or long getaways to the area. My family and I were so impressed with the home we intend to stay at the Pelican's Elbow on our next visit. I could not recommend The Pelican's Elbow more!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
This house was both comfortable and beautiful with a large interior. We enjoyed meeting with Ron who explained all the housing details in person and provided us with tips and information on how to enjoy the area.

We were able to have an amazing and relaxing vacation with plenty of options but without feeling run ragged by trying to get activities in at a break-neck pace. The beach is a very close and a stunning must-see. We got to experience Miramar/Destin then come back to an enjoyable space. The pool was a plus for our two active teenagers. Pelican's elbow is very clean and well maintained and its location is central to miles of options in restaurants and activities. We visited the Armament Museum for its history and were pleased to see many planes from the base nearby. Pepitos was, by far, our favorite restaurant in the area with its amazing food that accomodates food allergies. We would be willing to stay with Ron's property here at Pelican's Elbow or another of his properties with no hestitation. Very highly recommended.

Activity and Interests

Destin features a wide array of water-oriented activities, including

beautiful white-sand beaches, surfing, sailing, parasailing,

snorkeling/scuba diving, pontoon boat rentals, windsurfing,

kayaking, jet skiing, sightseeing/dinner/dolphin watching cruises,

and shelling. You can even swim with the dolphins in the open ocean.

The shopping is great, with one of the largest Designer Outlet Malls

in the US just 3 miles from the home.

You may wish to rent a street-legal golf cart for your vacation.

They're handy for zipping to and from the beach. They can be

operated on any street with a 35 mph speed limit (or less), must

obey all traffic and parking laws, and must be parked in our

garage when at the home. We recommend Destin Golf Cart

Rentals (search for it, this site won't allow URLs).

There is a beach service on our beach that offers rentals of sturdy

beach chairs & umbrellas, canopies, cabanas, kayaks and paddle


Other activities include hiking/walking (Gulf-front state parks

nearby), biking, miniature golf, fitness center/gym, tennis,

wildlife viewing, horseback riding, amusement parks, museums, zoo,

restaurants, cinemas and scooter & electric vehicle rentals.

The Destin area is home to a dozen fine golf courses, available to

the public. There are nearby state forests with biking trails and

bike, kayak and canoe rentals. And Destin is close to deep water,

boasting a large fleet of charter fishing boats and day boats for

the finest in deep-sea fishing.
