You’ll have a spacious back yard, fenced for privacy and security, with tropical landscaping and your own swimming pool, one of 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.)
The home is on a quiet street in a private gated community, 3 blocks from 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
December 28, 2015
Have rented a lot of vacation spots over the years this BYE FAR was the best stocked of them all..Ron was a treat to work with and every thing was as stated. Although weather was a pain in the butt we had a wonderful time.....Brian
Loved the Pelican
October 18, 2015
The 7 of us just came home from a 8 day stay at the Pelican's Elbow. Everything as stated in the offering by Ron Larsen was true and accurate and he was a cool guy to deal with. House had 4 bedrooms, washer/dryer, pool, and was exceptionally clean & was convenient to beach, restaurants, stores, and attractions. If ever can get the family together again and wanted to go back to Destin, we would have to look no further than the Pelican.
Fantastic Home Away From Home!
October 7, 2015
We have just returned from our second visit to Pelicans Elbow. This home has everything! The kitchen is well equipped, plenty of towels etc. The back yard is fully fenced, which is great for our dogs, the pool is great and there's a grill if you want to eat in. Ron makes sure you know all the good places to eat nearby and his folder with lots of other information is really useful. We will be returning next year and honestly wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else in Destin.
Pelican's elbow review
September 27, 2015
We stayed at the pelicans' elbow with our 2 young children and another family and their two young children. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably. The home was clean and had plenty of amenities for us to use. It can fully equipped with toys for the kids to use at the beach along with umbrellas and beach chairs which made packing much easier. My only complaint would be the distance from the beach. With little kids it was a bit of a walk for them to make. There was a parking lot located very close by, but we opted not to drive to avoid sand in the car. I believe the actual distance was half a mile. However that being said the house was perfect for our families and located centrally close to shopping and restaurants. Mr. Larsen was very helpful and accommodating throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend this home to other families.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pelican's Elbow vacation rental. First time visiting Destin and we was not disappointed! Ron Larsen had an informative binder regarding the house, restaurants, places to visit, etc... which we thought was excellent for renters to find out about the area. The house and pool was lovely and everything we could possibly need was already provided for us. We definitely would book again at Pelican's Elbow! Jody Law

The house was well stocked. We especially appreciated the first aide kits, paper products, towels, and cleaning products. The pool was perfect since we had small kids and the beach is uber hot in July. The washer and dryer were also very handy. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful family vacation.

Relax and enjoy
June 15, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at the pelicans elbow very much. From the private pool to the beach we had a wonderful relaxing time. We were able to get in touch with Mr. Larsen prior to arriving at the home and we're greeted by him upon our arrival. The private pool was wonderful along with the beach. We just would have liked for the beach to be a little closer as we had little ones we were toting around. Any issues that came up Mr. Larsen took care of immediately and checked in with us to make sure it was taken care of. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Hope to visit again in the near future.

Our stay was wonderful and relaxing! The owner, was there to greet us as we arrived to give us all the information we needed for our stay. This was VERY helpful since we had not vacationed in Destin before. Everything we needed at the home was there for us to use just like we were at home. The home was spacious and VERY clean! The pool was wonderful to go to early in the mornings and in late evening before or after the beach. The back yard was nice and private for a cup of coffee and breakfast in the mornings or to have an outdoor meal in the afternoon/evening. We will definately consider staying at this home again.
Best Family Vacation Ever!!
April 12, 2015
When we booked our trip we never expected to be as great as what it was. Ron was more than helpful with giving advice about the area. The house was so clean and beautiful along with having everything that you need to cook/bake just like your own home. The pool is steps outside the backdoor and not to mention is so unbelievably clean you could drink it. The beach is located within walking distance and there is a wagon to pull with all of your beach needs. This was one of our best vacations ever and we will be coming back again soon!!
September 25, 2014
We were very pleased with the size of the house, we were greeted by Mr. Larson he explained everything we need it to know about the house. The home offers lots of towels, beach supplies anything you need inside out. The kids love the pool, short commute to the beach and groceries stores. We are definitelly going back next year!!
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.
July 16, 2012
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.

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!
October 12, 2011
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.
