Holiday Rental House
On this vacation, stay at the Pelican's Elbow instead of some cramped condo. Kick off your shoes, relax, enjoy your own large 4 bedroom home, private swimming pool and patio and get away from everyday. The patio is great for morning coffee instead of a morning commute. You'll have a spacious back yard, fenced for privacy and security, with tropical landscaping and one of the largest private pools in the neighborhood. The pool is 'L-shaped,' 28'1/2 feet long by 9-13 feet wide. For your convenience, the Pelican has beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels and a wagon to transport them to the beach. The home is on a quiet street in a private gated community, 3-1/2 blocks from the beach. This beautiful home with its nautical décor is perfect for large families or groups.

The home is on a quiet street in a private gated community, 3-1/2 blocks from the beach. This beautiful home with its nautical décor 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, a spacious family room, full kitchen with a breakfast bar seating six plus everything you need for housekeeping and a full laundry room. Everything is on one floor, so there are no stairs to contend with. The home features porcelain tile floors, memory foam mattresses in all bedrooms, flat screen HDTVs and DVDs or VCR/DVDs throughout. Small pets are welcome at Pelican's Elbow (fee required), so they can also enjoy the family vacation. 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, 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 46' HDTV, DVD player and a selection of books, more than 175 videos (including 30+ kid's movies), and family games. Free wireless 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 Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Beds, 2 Sofa Beds, 2 CribsMore

About the neighbourhood
Destin features a wide array of water-oriented activities, including beautiful white-sand beaches, surfing, 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 the largest Designer Outlet Mall in the US just 3 miles from the home. Other activities include hiking/walking (Gulf-front state park nearby), biking, miniature golf, gym, tennis, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, museums, zoo, restaurants, cinemas and scooter & electric vehicle rentals. There is a beach service on our beach that offers rentals of sturdy beach chairs & umbrellas, canopies, cabanas, kayaks and paddle boards. Big Kahuna's i...
Getting around
The closest airport is the Destin-Ft Walton Beach Airport (VPS). Pensacola Airport (PNS) is to the west, about an hour's distance. Northwest Florida Beaches Airport (ECP) near Panama City is about an hour to the east. Auto rental is available at all of them. Taxi service is available in the area, but bringing or renting a car would be most convenient.
