2 Full baths

Description from owner

On this vacation, stay at the Pelican's Elbow instead of some cramped condo. Kick off your shoes, relax, enjoy your own large 4 bedroom home, private swimming pool and patio and get away from everyday. The patio is great for morning coffee instead of a morning commute.

You'll have a spacious back yard, fenced for privacy and security, with tropical landscaping and one of the largest private pools in the neighborhood. The pool is "L-shaped," 28'1/2 feet long by 9-13 feet wide. It is not heated.

For your convenience, the Pelican has beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels and a wagon to transport them to the beach.

The home is on a quiet street in a private gated community, 3-1/2 blocks from the beach.

This beautiful home with its nautical décor is perfect for large families or groups. You have room to stretch out - 2020 sq. feet (largest floor plan in the neighborhood) -- with large living/dining room, four bedrooms and two baths, a spacious family room, full kitchen with a breakfast bar seating six plus everything you need for housekeeping and a full laundry room. Everything is on one floor, so there are no stairs to contend with.

The home features porcelain tile floors, memory foam mattresses in all bedrooms, flat screen HDTVs and DVDs or VCR/DVDs throughout.

The white-sugar-sand beach is a short stroll away and dining, shopping and amusements are close at hand. You can swim with dolphins, cruise the Gulf, parasail, kayak or partake in any of dozens of other nearby activities.

At the end of a great day in the sun, you can enjoy the family room with high-definition 46" HDTV, DVD player and a selection of books, more than 175 videos (including 30+ kid's movies), and family games. Free wireless Internet is provided.

Kick back, soak up some sun and work on your tan (or lounge in the shade) and enjoy life at the Pelican's Elbow.
