The beach view the room everything was beautiful
Tim R. Jul 2021
The views from this condo are amazing. The unit itself could use some TLC and upgrades but overall was suitable for our stay.
Loc M T. Jul 2021
Convenient location with clean/beautiful beach. Lots of parking. Room was clean & in good shape.
Rebecca D. Jul 2021
The condo overall was nice. Loved the location right on the beach. However The outlet in the main bathroom did not work and was falling out of the wall. The showerheads in both bathrooms need replaced badly all you could get was a little stream of water making taking a shower and shampoo in your hair difficult. My main complaint was the balcony which I realize you cannot control pigeons but we could not use half of the balcony because a pigeon had roosted on top of the light fixture and there was pigeon crap all over the place. I did send a text asking for them to send someone to come clean up the pigeon poop but I got no response. We took care of the pigeon our self by hanging plastic bags and it did not return but we had to look at the pigeon Poop all week. It would’ve been nice to received a callback or someone come to clean. All in all the location is great with a great view and we would definitely stay at the pelican Beach resort again but probably not unit 1409
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Rebecca! We are so glad you had a great time! We have tried using several decoys to keep the pigeons away, but they all seem to disappear. It's a disappointment to read they were a bother to you. We have followed-up with housekeeping regarding cleaning the droppings off the balcony. Maintenance is changing out the shower heads and and fixing the outlet. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

We loved the pools, the short walk to the ocean, and there was room for the whole family.

The view was definitely the selling point of this listing. The room seems outdated, the bedroom window blinds were stuck and it appeared to be broken, the shower head in the main bathroom did not adjust to allow any water pressure out, and the water dripped in the shower in the bedroom. We had to solely use the bathroom in the bedroom for showers. The room was disappointing for the amount of money spent. There was also a bird who made a home in the corner of the balcony and covered in bird poop. A decorative owl was placed on the balcony to try to deter the bird but it didn’t work. We only saw him on occasion but the bird poop was disappointing. Check in is late - after 4 pm - so we had to find stuff to do until the room was cleaned.

If none of that matters to you, this would be a great room. The view is phenomenal and sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view was great. I just wish we got a better experience with the rest of the place for the amount of money we spent.

The view is really the only nice thing about this condo. We have stayed in many other condos at the Pelican Beach Resort that were very nice and this particular one was very dingy. It needs a lot of work and didn’t have a comfortable feel about it at all. It needs several updates and replacements to make guests feel happy with their stay. We love Pelican Beach Resort but this particular condo was a big disappointment.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your experience, Sarah! We apologize if the condition of the home did not meet your expectations for ideal comfort and appeal. We are currently working with the owner to do some updating and improve the house for future guests. We appreciate and encourage guests to let us know of any questions or concerns that may arise in the home so that we make work to address and resolve them as soon as possible. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future.

A fantastic view from the balcony! Loved the space abd the two bathrooms. Tv is outdated and did not have Netflix or YouTube. Appliances are very old. But the view and location were great.
Jasmin J. Oct 2020
The condo is at an amazing location. The view is out of this world. It was clean quite and very relaxing. Sitting on the balcony and listening to the waves is very soothing. The staff at the location was very attentive and helpful we really enjoyed our stay. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because when we first walked in the place smelled like weed. It was very strong and I hate she smell of weed. I just taught they could have aired it out and second the mattress is very bad. My wife and I rode our motorcycle from Chicago so I was looking forward to getting some good rest but it did not happen. They should really invest in a new mattress but other than that everything else was great. We will be back for sure.
Manager response:

Very nice rooms, great view,, very secure area. Lot to do without ever leaving the building area. Beach area is as good as any in the area.
Rodney H. Sep 2019
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Pelican Beach Resort. The unit was very clean and the balcony had amazing views. The few things I would improve would be the bed was a little uncomfortable and the showers needed new fixtures for better water pressure. The beach was amazing, but the pool crowded. Vacasa was amazing with their response when we contacted them.

The view from the balcony was amazing and the kitchen was spacious and well-furnished.
Andrea S. Jul 2019
I really liked our room. Super clean room with a great view. Kitchen was fully equipped with lots of pans, dishware etc. My only complaints would be a couple of the beds. My daughter slept on top bunk bed which she said it was a bit too stiff. My mom slept on the sofa bed which was not so comfy either but other than that everything else was great. I would recommend Pelican beach resort to family and friends.
