vacation rental description

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.

traveler reviews for this destin house rental

Great vacation

Review submitted: May 1, 2007   Date of arrival: April 1, 2007

This rental home is awesome. I give it only 3 stars for accuracy of property description only because I think the description was down played. The house was WAY more than what was described. There were 4 couples enjoying the home & each couple was impressed with the amenities and the space. The home is very spacious. Everyone had plenty of room. The pool was awesome also. The walk to the beach was an easy walk. Our group will definately make this a yearly vacation & this home will be one that we will stay at again & again. The owner was real easy to work with also. Great property.

Lovely Place to Stay

Review submitted: July 16, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

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!

Review submitted: August 23, 2013   Date of arrival: August 10, 2013

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!
