Had a great time. Will definitely be back.

This is a great condo on the beach with the most beautiful view! The condo is spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable, and we were pleased to have a washer and dryer in the unit. The kitchen provides all cookware, utensils, and dinnerware needed. The one thing we would have liked in the unit were some kitchen/cooking necessities such as salt and pepper shakers. Our previous rental had items such as salt, pepper, sugar, so we didn't think to buy those for our stay here. So a heads up when planning on grocery shopping that you need to buy everything, even salt and pepper, and coffee/sugar/creamer. The location is great as well. Close to groceries, restaurants, shopping. The actual resort could be cleaner. The elevators and halls were not very clean, but not due to owners of this home. The actual resort could take more care of the facilities, but that may be due to shortage of staff. Overall, this is a nice place to stay if you want to be on the beach!
Manager response:
Hello Kristina, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately with the new COVID standards we do not leave perishables of any kind even salt and pepper in the units. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Loved this condo! Beeeeeautiful views! Will be back! No better place to stay. Condo next door had a live band. We had the best seat in the house from our balcony.

Unit 1201 at Pelican Beach Resort was great and wayyyy too short.

This was our first visit to the Destin area and couldn’t plan for a longer stay due to commitments we have later this month.

The trip was my spouse and I, so we utilized the master bedroom/bathroom and used the second bathroom. The second bedroom wasn’t really required but the size, condition, and location of the unit are what drew us to this choice.

Check in was smooth as was check-out. Pelican Beach Resort manages the complex and made us feel welcomed and did not treat us any differently than their other guests while ensuring we understood how to resolve any problems that they would be responsible for (resort issues) v those items that could require us to contact Vacasa. (Which wasn’t necessary).

The unit was clean and well equipped. The instructions and guides provided were through and helpful, especially regarding the beach chairs.

To reserve chairs and umbrellas (as well as other items), there is a company that sets up each morning and opens for first come first serve spots starting at 9am. To reserve prior to arriving - check out:

All appliances and the HVAC worked great and we experienced zero issues with the unit.

Being a corner unit, you get the sunrise in the bedroom to wake you along with the larger waterfront balcony.

We wish we had more time and I’d definitely return to this unit and Vacasa.

The entire unit was great. I have stayed at several Vacasa rentals and they never disappoint.
Jennifer A. Mar 2021
We loved everything about this condo. Updated and very well stocked. It was immaculate with a perfect location. We would, absolutely, stay here again.
Kristine N. Mar 2021
My family enjoyed every minute we spent here and will definitely be coming back.
James M. Mar 2021
From the moment we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how thoughtful the owners are. Everything was perfect, clean and provided for. Whether it be towels in the bathrooms to appliances and all the necessary amenities in the kitchen, every detail was though out and provided. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast on the balcony in the mornings and the whirlpool tub was wonderful every evening. The beach is beautiful as is the clear, Emerald Coast waters! Destin is a nice area with plenty of shopping and great restaurants. I would not only recommend this property but would also stay here again on our next trip to Destin. P.S I don't recall any mention of the purified drinking water the unit provides but that sure was something we appreciated and enjoyed.

Christopher B. Jul 2020
The unit was clean and felt comfortable very quickly for our whole family. This unit has great amenities and finishes and the view out of the corner unit was gorgeous. We were afraid the elevators were going to be an issue in such a large complex, but were never very troubled by it. If we go back to Destin, we would certainly consider this place again.
Jenny S. Jul 2020
This condo was great for our first family beach trip. We had plenty of space and everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and all the rooms had fans so we stayed cool inside. The living area and kitchen were very nice and clean. The crew on the beach for chairs and umbrellas were so nice! We had a great trip!
Jennifer G. Jun 2020
I loved how the home owners thought of everything (except towels in the master bath :)) Good thing we had extra beach towels. And the ice machine was turned off so we had to go back to the store to get ice to make a drink when we got there. We had gotten there 1.5 hours early hoping we could go inside and look around before going to the store but our code didn't work early. We had everything we needed to cook with and the house was clean upon arrival and there was a nice binder with answers to questions you still might have. We went right before the second outbreak of Covid 19 so it was too busy for us to enjoy the beach. This has nothing to do with the condo itself which is why there are still 5 stars on the rating. There are 5 rows of seats/umbrellas on the Pelican Beach Resort beach that were not 6 feet apart, no one was wearing masks inside, we didn't see anyone wiping down the elevators/buttons or counter tops the week we were there. Then you look over at the beaches next to Pelican Beach and you see lots of room to set up, but you can't cause they are run by those private residences or hotel. Great place to stay but the beach is over crowded. The condo is on the 12th floor so if it starts raining, better be the first on the elevator or ready to climb 12 flights of stairs like we did each time (and it rained 4 out of 6 days we were there).

Condo was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and had comfortable beds and wonderful amenities to include washer/dryer. Loved waking up and being able to drink my coffee on private patio with ocean front view! We will definitely stay here again!
Jennifer W. Jun 2020
Very clean and amazing views from both balconies. Beach toys provided. Lots of pots and pans. Kids loved their individual beds and the master bed was amazing to sleep on after a long day. Highly recommended.
Edith S. Jun 2020
