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!
This condo has an amazing view of the ocean. It is well maintained, cozy, and an enjoyable place to stay. Tufan, the owner, was very attentive to any of our needs while we were there. Would definitely recommend.
We booked this little trip for a small getaway for our kids. The room was very clean and the view was breathtaking. My kids particularly enjoyed the TVs that come with each bunk bed. Would definitely book again
This room has a great view of the ocean and easy access to the beach and other area attractions. The owner was very easy to communicate with. We had a great time in Destin and would recommend this stay to anyone. Very family friendly and fun time!
