You honestly can’t beat this one! Immediate beach access, incredible view, super clean room, comfy mattresses, and absolutely the softest sheets ever. The owners were a pleasure to work with and the location is on the quiet side of the island - just you and the ocean. We will definitely be back.

This condo is great - beautiful, clean, well kept and a great view. Comfy beds and the softest carpet your bare feet have ever felt. The kitchen was well stocked with a variety of items. The owners were very easy to deal with. We were impressed because there's no additional "hidden" fees in the pricing - no security deposit/cleaning, etc. The price is what the price is!!!!! We highly recommend! You will not be disappointed!!

The pictures do NOT do this condo justice. We had a terrific time & were very pleased with not only the condo, but also with the owners. Beverley went out of her way to work with us and even met us there to show us around. We toured their other condo on the 4th floor (which was beautiful also). She also offered to give us any recommendations we needed about the area/activities and encouraged us to call or text her if we needed anything at all. I just cannot say enough about how beautiful the inside and outside were! Both of the balconies are great and we spent many hours just sitting outside. The view is wonderful as well - we could see all the way to the pier to the east and almost endlessly to the west. The complex is much closer to the water than it appears from some photos we had seen and was a very quick, easy walk. The beachside chairs were a great addition and Josh (who sets up the chairs) was very helpful and put us at ease immediately. The complex staff were also very nice and helpful. There is a deck box with tons of beach items like pop-up shades, a kite, a chair or two, float, buckets, and boogie boards. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, utensils and cookware. There is a large, flatscreen tv in the living room and both bedrooms had large televisions as well - all with cable. The wireless internet was fast & connecting to it was very easy. The kitchen even has a small work area (with a view) & a separate electrical outlet! thank you SO much for the great condo and amazing vacation! I needed a vacation and it couldn't have been any better!

My family and my parents stayed here July 14-21, 2012. We fell in love with the condo immediately! It was very comfortable and decorated so beautifully. We appreciated the King beds in both bedrooms and they were both big and roomy. Both masters had a shared private balcony off the side, which was nice, as well. Our two oldest kids loved the hallway bunks. The kitchen was fully stocked with all items and appliances needed. The condo is located at the end of the complex and was very quiet. Also, it comes with adjoining covered parking spaces, so convenient and never had to worry about door dings.

Love the PennHouse

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We had a lovely stay at the Penn House at Pelican Isle. We stayed last year in a one bedroom unit and as much as we enjoyed our stay, we needed more room. The Penn House was so nice. We had ample room and the extra kitchen space was really nice. More balcony space than we have ever had at any condo. That was wonderful. It is well decorated with good furniture and accessories. Just overall a great place to stay. My family of four would love to return to the Penn House next year. I hope that we can. Excellent.

What A View!

  • 5 of 5

This condo delivers on every promise & more! It is located right on the beach with excellent views just as promised. The balcony is very large - it is amazing to enjoy lunch at the patio set with views of the ocean or close out your day by having coffee on the balcony & watch the waves come in by moonlight. It is absolutely stunning. And the inside of the condo? The decor is fun and makes it feel like home. This is a very spacious condo. The master bedroom & master bathroom are very large. The master bathroom has a large jetted tub and shower unit, double sinks with a great amount of counter space. All of the beds are very comfortable. We have traveled quite a bit and this is one of the cleanest units we have ever stayed in. You can tell that this condo is well taken care of. The owners are local and make sure that things are done right with their unit. They really care about the unit and the people that stay there. Ken & Beverly were great to work with and you can be sure that they will take care of you. Everything was very nice and you will not be disappointed in any way. The resort itself is well kept and clean and very quiet. We didn't hear any noise at all in our unit (something that can be a problem in many resorts). Also, the covered parking space was great. This is something you don't really think much about, but it was a huge benefit in my opinion. The space is close to the elevator making it easy to load & unload. Also...keeps your car much cooler on those hot days and very helpful if a shower happens to pop up right when you are going to the car!

We loved this place!!! Condo was as nice as pictures showed. Very clean and up to date. Ken and Beverly were great to work with. We recomemmend this condo,--great for families. Okaloosa Island is a great family place, very quiet and calm, no teenagers without supervision. Not far from Destin(much more hustle bustle). We look forward to our next vacation. Thanks Beverly and Ken
