Having never been to Destin before, we were a bit nervous about the place we chose to stay. This condo was all we dreamed of and more. A comfortable home away from home. It’s charming and quaintly decorated. The views are incredible, it was hard to leave the balcony! Loved the views so much we ended up cooking in a few nights; the kitchen is awesome! We appreciated the instructions and suggestions we received from the owner! Hate to leave, but we are sure we are coming back!

Perfectly situated to all the good restaurants and the water park is across the street. The beach was pristine at this location and the staff managing the facility was so kind and helpful.
The kitchen had many more dishes, cooking amenities than any other we had stayed at and the bed was extremely comfortable. We are always looking for a good review of a mattress before we book.
There were 4 TVs, Netflix (free only) and wonderful wifi.
The two bunk beds each had a TV and a light which would have made it wonderful if we were traveling with our grandkids. But adults would be very comfortable in them as well.
Would definitely rent this unit again! Tufan, the owner, was very attentive throughout the whole process. Thank you!
If you're planning a trip to Destin, this condo is the perfect place to stay! My family and I just arrived home from a weeks stay, and we miss it already! We had a truly wonderful experience in Destin, thanks to this condo, and the owner, Tufan. Tufan, a kind, personable, and generous man; was a pleasure to work with! (Even the Pelican Beach Resort staff commented on Tufan's kindness when we first arrived and got our parking pass.) He has thought of everything to make his guests' stay the best, and he was always quick to reply to every type of communication. Excellent communication leading up to, throughout, and concluding our stay. In addition to all the technical information, parking, key codes, etc, he included extra things like, lists of things you should pack, things you don't have to worry about packing (my favorite), things to do, and restaurant recommendations. We had dinner at the Aegean one night, as per Tufan's recommendation, and it was delicious!
As for the unit itself, it is exactly as pictured, and even more charming in person. There are so many units at the Pelican Beach Resort, but I feel that this unit is in the perfect location. It faces the ocean, and is high enough up that there is nothing to obstruct your ocean view. Also, you don't have to worry about extra noise from the outdoor pool. Likewise, on the floor itself, the unit is close to elevators, laundry, and trash shoot, but far enough away that you don't hear the noise from any of those things. It's in a peaceful yet convenient location. We saw pelicans fly by our balcony a few times while we were there, and it was so nice to see and hear the ocean while preparing meals in the kitchen. The kitchen appliances are excellent, and the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, silverware, pots & pans, and cooking utensils. Tufan provides consumable items to get you started, such as, dishwasher detergent, paper towels, shampoo, lotion, etc. He even left a couple of bottles of water and mints! There is a Walmart and Dollar Tree, among many other stores, nearby for you to pick up whatever you need once you have arrived. Bathing towels and washcloths were of great quality. Extra blankets were provided, and the beds were incredible comfortable!! Wow! It's sweet dreams on those mattresses! Also available in the unit were beach chairs, beach umbrella, and sand bucket & shovel. Want to stay in? Great! There's a TV at every bed, Wi-Fi, cable, Netflix, Amazon Prime, DVD player, and board games! My family and I loved the décor in this unit! In addition to what is pictured, there is local sea-themed artwork throughout that really makes you feel connected to the community and the beach.
I can't imagine a better place to stay while visiting Destin, and the next time we plan a trip there, this unit will be our first choice! Thanks Tufan and family!
Beautiful Hotel! Wonderful experience. Soon as I walked through the door I felt as if I were at home.
Exactly as advertised, great set up and location. Beautiful view of the ocean and within just a few minutes of restaurants, harbor, and many other things to do. Five stars!
