About the area

We'd love to have you come stay with us in our very own home away from home. We traveled to Destin as children, and the memories are still fresh in our mind. We bought our condominium here so we could give our children the same memories, and invite you to enjoy this experience with your family! Destin is the perfect mix of activity and relaxation with something for everyone. And you know what they say, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! Terrace at Pelican Beach Resort is located in the heart of Destin, close to shopping, many restaurants, and activities including golf, fishing, parasailing, dolphin cruises, diving, Big Kahuna's Water Theme Park (open in summer), the Track Theme Park and miniature golf and the Destin Harbor. Destin Commons, our local shopping district with trendy shops, restaurants, bars and a Cinemark theater is just a few miles down the road, and the Silver Sands Outlet Shops, with every name brand imaginable, are just a short distance farther! We chose this particular location because like most, we wanted to have everything close by if we needed it, but also be in a place where we could do nothing. The Beach is on our property! Big Kahuna Water Park (open in summer) is right across the street. If you can walk a little, the Track entertainment center with go karts, game room, and miniature golf is just down the road. However, we do recommend a car because there is so much more in Destin and the surrounding area that you really should not miss. Almost every type of restaurant is within a few miles of our condo. There is so much selection we still have not been to them all ourselves. There is a Miller's Ale House, Outback, Joe's Crab Shack, Fudpuckers (not Fuddruckers), Olive Garden, Osaka, Hooters, Applebee's, Carrabba's and Ruth's Chris just to name a few chains, and then many, many seafood and beach style restaurants. Also, Emeril Lagasse lives in the Destin area (and you might even be fortunate enough to see him, we were). He is opening an Emeril's in Grand Boulevard in Sandestin, just a few miles to the east.

Getting around

A car is your best bet, but there are cabs if you need them. There are a few things within walking distance but there is so much more to Destin that transportation is really necessary.

Getting here

Destin is accessible by air or car. We strongly recommend a car during your stay. Airports in Pensacola and Panama City, serviced by most major airlines, are about 50 miles away. NW Florida Regional Airport, also serviced by most airlines (except Southwest, sorry Texans), is even closer. Destin is about 30 miles south of Interstate 10, accessible via a number of state highways from either direction off I-10.

Interaction with guest

We are just a phone call or email away if you need anything! We want everyone to enjoy their time in our condo and that means we will help you with any issue that comes up, even if it is as simple as a restaurant recommendation.

“Amazing Condo!”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2017

Just wrapped up 9 weeks at this wonderful condo! It is spacious, clean, well appointed. The location is wonderful with many restaurants and stores within walking distance, and even more within driving distance. The beach is a 4 minute walk without any streets to cross ... with chairs, umbrellas and even beach toys provided by the gracious host and hostess. The amenities (pool, fitness & hot tub) are clean and in great working order. There are plenty of places to walk around the neighbourhood. If you are there during the "busy" season, the Big Kahuna, and a mini golf course, are located across the street from the complex. Consider this accommodation the next time you are looking for a safe, clean place to take your family to, or just retreat to as a couple.

Owner's reply: We are happy you enjoyed your winter vacation and thank you again for staying with us! We are always happy to provide our northern friends a respite from the snow and ice. We're glad the location suited you, we love it too, right in the middle of everything! Best wishes for the rest of the year. Ken and Rita

The condo meet all expectations. Very close to the beach, rooms are spacious and a great view from the wrap around balcony. My kids enjoyed every minute of it. Pool was very clean and spacious. I would definitely without hesitation recommend this condo. Planning our next trip already and will stay here again.

Owner's reply: We are so happy the condo met your expectations. We look forward to seeing you again.

“Pelican Beach Terrace 307”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2016

This was our first time in Destin and we loved our stay. The condo we rented was beautiful and maintained very well. It was spacious and provided plenty of room for our family of 6. It was a 2 minute walk to the beach. The pool located in our building was very nice. I would recommend this rental. The owners Ken and Rita were very accommodating and answered all of our questions. We loved it!

Owner's reply: We are glad your first trip to Destin was memorable and thank you again for allowing us to open our home to you! Our first trip to the Terrace was almost 6 years ago, and during the winter holidays. Our first full day there the low was 28 degrees, which is rare for Destin. Still, we loved the area and the building (especially the heated pool) so much we bought this condo and are there 4 or 5 times a year every year - it never gets old as it is our second home.

“Best place in Destin!”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2015

We rented this condo for our family vacation and were very pleased! The condo is spacious, clean, nicely decorated and well equipped with everything needed to cook meals. The views are nice and the property is in a great location. There's plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby, including a nice water park right across the street. We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back! Thank you Ken and Rita for sharing your condo with our family!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the nice words and we are glad you enjoyed your time in our condo. The water park is a favorite for our kids too. We hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and look forward to hearing from you again.

“Perfect Spot!”

Reviewed 20 May 2015

My husband and I rented this condo along with 3 other friends of ours. We were on a tight budget and didn't think we could afford anything nice! We came across this place and couldn't believe how nice it was with such a reasonable price tag. The condo was huge and the rooms were beautiful. The location was perfect... We were somewhat difficult to work with but Ken and Rita went out of there way to make sure everything went smoothly. I have saved this info and we will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Devan, thank you for the kind words. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and Destin. We are always happy to work with our servicemen and their families, and appreciate everything you all do for us. We look forward to hearing from you again.

“Great Experience”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2013

We stayed there for my daughter's wedding! Couldn't have asked for better for what we wanted and needed! Plenty of room! We entertained quite a bit there and it was lovely. The place was clean, nicely decorated and well equipped with things. Pleny of glasses, dishes, flatware, etc. Views were nice as well. It has been well taken care of and it shows. I would recommend it. This is the first time we have rented anyone's property, we usually go to a hotel, so I was a little nervous about doing this, but extremely happy with our experience!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the kind words, and congratulations again on the wedding. We are glad the condo suited your needs and those of your friends and guests. We look forward to hearing from you again!

“Excellent Condominium!!! Top Notch!!!”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2011

We really enjoyed staying in this condo unit for the entire week in July, 2011. The condo was very big, it has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The balcony gave us a good view of the ocean (about 300 yards away) and also a good view of the beautiful lake near by. There was a washer and dryer locating in this condo unit, and that was very convenient because we didn't have to pack alot of clothes for the trip. There was another plus about this condo unit: The distance from this building to the beach was about the length of three football fields. So it's not too far for a short exercise walk, and it's not too close to the beach where some of the crowd's noise may wake you up from time to time at night. As far as Internet access, there was a DSL modem in the kitchen so you can use the Internet by simply plugging the Ethernet cable (already available and attached to the modem) to your laptop. But this means you will have to sit near the modem to use the Internet. What we did was we brought our own wireless router and simply plug the Ethernet cable (see above) into our router and voila... wireless Internet for everyone in our family who used their own laptops! We stayed in this condo unit during the July 4th week, but the beach was not very crowded at all. There were more people than usual, but it was not like elbows to elbows. Lots of room on the beach! Also, there was NOT a single trace of oil from the BP oil spill. Absolutely No Oil ll!!! Just beautiful clear water and white sugary sandy beach. The only thing we didn't like about the beach was sometimes when there was extremely high wind (storm), the seaweeds would be blown toward the beach. At least one day during our stay, there was lots of seaweeds. By the way, although the beach was not crowded, but the street traffic was heavy because it was during the July 4th holidays!!! When leaving Pelican Beach Resorts, it was impossible to make left turns between 9AM and 8PM. Our family members joked that if anyone of us could make left turn (safely) from 9AM to 8PM, then next year that person can stay here for free and we'd pay for all of his/her expenses :) Overall, I would give this give this condo unit 307 5/5 stars. The staff at the resorts also 5/5 stars, the Terrace building was very clean so it gets 5/5 stars. The entire Pelican Beach Resorts also deserves an overall rating of 5/5 stars. The owners of this condo unit also get 5/5 stars because they were very nice, helpful, and profesional Thank you!
