Pelican's Elbow, Private Pool, Pet Friendly, WiFi
|Per night:||$185 - $240|
|Per week:||$1,175 - $2,675|
You’ll have a spacious back yard, fenced for privacy and security, with tropical landscaping and your own swimming pool, the largest in the neighborhood. The pool is "L-shaped," 28'1/2 feet long by 9-13 feet wide. Best of all, the pool is all yours – no sharing with the neighborhood or a condo association. Perhaps you are back from an afternoon at the beach, or it’s after dinner – the pool is a great place for the kids (and adults) to enjoy themselves without the need to organize an expedition other than out your back door. You’ll enjoy the patio with picnic table and large gas grill.
For your convenience, the Pelican has beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels and a wagon to transport them to the beach. If you wish, you can rent a street legal electric golf cart. It’s a great way to tote people and supplies to and from the beach. We recommend Destin Golf Cart Rentals. (Search the web for them, this site won't allow links.)
The home is on a quiet street in a private gated community, near the beach.

Everything is on one floor, so there are no stairs to contend with.
The home has recently been updated with porcelain tile floors, memory foam mattresses in all bedrooms, flat screen HDTVs throughout and fresh paint.
The spacious Master bedroom features a king size bed for sleeping comfort, HDTV/VCR/DVD, a private bath with double sinks, large soaker tub & shower and a huge walk-in closet. The Kahuna and Palm Bedrooms both have queen beds, HDTVs, DVD players and alarm clocks just in case you don't want to sleep in some morning. The Twin bedroom features two twin beds and HDTV with VCR/DVD player. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan. There are queen sleeper sofas in separate living and family rooms. We have a portable crib and single roll-away bed available.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Destin, Florida
May 26, 2014
Upon arriving at the home, we were greeted by Mr. Larson and he reviewed all of the necessary information with our group. Judging by the pictures provided on the website, we expected the home to be a bit small, but we were pleasantly surprised once we entered the home. Each of the bedrooms were spacious and the home accommodated our group of nine quiet well. The pool, backyard and patio were the perfect location to spend the evening after a long day at the beach. And, not having to leave the area to get to the beach was wonderful. With either a short walk or a short drive we were water front in no time. In addition, having plenty of towels, and beach supplies at our disposal made this house even better. We look forward to our next stay at The Pelican's Elbow.
Lots of room!
August 14, 2013
Beautiful home, very well kept. It is also a lot bigger than I the pictures show it to be. The kids loved the pool and all the toys to take to the beach! Short walk to the beach. Ronald was great to work with and we will definitely be back next year!
Roomy with plenty to do.

We had a great time at the Pelicans Elbow. The house had plenty of room for our group of 12 with 4 of the group being under 4 years old. The were a nice number of miscellaneous beach toys for all the kids to utilize. Beaches are a 5 minute walk and several resturants are equally as close. It's a 10 minute drive to the harborwalk village where there are many activities. I really enjoyed the stay.
Mansfield, OH USA

We rented this property with my sister and her family. We had plenty of room for both families to spread out and enjoy. Our first day the weather was rainy so we spent the day in the house and were delighted to find videos and games and plenty of room. Everything is well kept and Ron (the owner) was available throughout the stay if we needed him. Kitchen was well-stocked and house was ready to just "move in" when we arrived. Pool was nice to have after a day at the ocean, kids enjoyed many hours in it. Pelican's Elbow was a very nice house and we enjoyed our vacation very much in it.

I stayed Pelican's Elbow during Thanksgiving weekends with my friend's families. We all were very happy with this house. We were close to the beach and the beach was very beautiful with white find sands. The neighborhood was very safe. We enjoyed sea foods from a market. It was great. Our kids enjoyed the children's video. I will looking forward to returing here.

The best choice you will ever make!

We have never rented a house for a vacation and after staying here, we will have to think twice about ever renting a hotel room! The house was impecable and comfortable. Mr. Larsen was professional, quick to respond to our needs, and courteous. We were close to the beach, mall, and restaurants. the neighborhood was quiet and safe. We loved the pool. There was plenty of room for privacy and close enough for togetherness. Our daughter loved the house (and the children's videos), the grandparents were comfortable, my sister in law had her space, we never ran out of hot water, and we had a memorable vacation! When we come to the beach, we will definitely be coming back to this house!

My wife and I are from Niagara Falls,Ontario. We booked our vacation online with our host Ron. Our business with him has been handled in a very reliable and satisfactory manner. He met as at the home and provided us with all of the house details needed for our stay. We have had a very nice relaxing time and have enjoyed our stay in Destin. Everything about the property feels like home to us. The rental was very reasonably priced, the house is well equipped, clean, and situated in a quiet, safe area close to all amenities. We will certainly look forward to returning here for another vacation. Tom and Vikki.
A Home Away from Home
August 4, 2010
Our stay was great. This was truly a home away from home. Everything we needed and more. After a long day at the beach it was so nice to come back to a nice comfortable place. So much better than a hotel. There was plenty of room to spread out and relax. A fully equipped kitchen for a good home cooked meal. Aswell as a great pool, since the kids could never get enough of the water. Having a washer and dryer allowed us to keep from traveling home with dirty laundry. This home was truly the icing on the cake for our great trip to Destin.
