March and April bookings!

I have had two different e-mails(last 3 days) about booking unit 1004 in April.
As of today(right now) my condo is booked solid until March 15. It is open on the 15th,16th and 17th and then open again on the 28-31 of March. I anticipate filling these dates soon.

April is open completely but should fill quickly.If you are planning a spring vacation getaway to the Destin Pelican Beach Resort then get my unit #1004 booked quickly. To book it, call or e-mail me for the rate and then I will call the pelican reservations desk and give them your name and rental rate. Then, I will ask you to call them, give them my booking code # A1080 and all your information.

Doing this will save you over the rate normally offered by the Pelican Beach Resort and you will get to stay in one of the nicest condos on the beach!

Cold weather Fun on the Beach in Destin

A couple of weeks ago, my family and I took a fews days vacation in Destin at the Pelican Beach Resort. It was too cold to lay out on the beach or go into the ocean.
However, my wife and daughters found another activity for fun.

In the two videos you will see my two daughters and one of their friends playing on the beach. My wife was there as well. Erin, my youngest daughter thought she had the ability to talk to the sea gulls and proceeded with her "squeals" to call them.

What she did not know was my wife had some bread and when Erin was not looking she threw some around her. Of course Erin thought she was calling the birds but actually the "bread" was calling them.

In the last video Erin actually got under a quilt to escape the birds but my wife threw bread on top of the quilt as well.

My family and I had a great time at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort and just love our condo(1004-on the rental program). Right after we left, a renter came in and I believe they are leaving out today and a snowbird arrives on the 1st of January for 2.5 months.

Headed to the Destin Pelican Beach Resort for some R & R

This coming Thursday (Dec 17th) my family and I are headed south for a long long weekend. We are leaving Thursday at noon and expect to drive to Destin,Florida in a little over 9 hours. Normally we would fly our small plane down(3 hr flight) but we are loaded down with decorating items for the condo(Destin Pelican beach Resort unit#1004).

We plan to rest and relax and do some additional decorating while there. I also plan to do a short video inside the condo to show the redecorating we have done. Be sure to check back to see the new video. Here is the first video we shot before we redecorated and remodeled.

We also have some friends driving down from Montgomery to join us. We are planning on departing on Monday the 21st and a new renter arrives to take our place on Dec 22-28.

Then beginning on Jan 1, 2010 a snowbird has our Destin Pelican Beach Resort unit #1004 booked until the middle of March. To book your vacation to Destin,Florida click on my Pelican Beach link to make your reservation.Be sure to mention booking code A1080.

Destin Pelican Beach Resort Reservations

Today I looked at the calendar for unit # 1004 and there are only a few days open in December(I am headed down Dec 17-20). Someone has booked the condo the week of Christmas then it is booked by a snowbird from January 1st - March 14th, 2010.

Guess what, no one has booked this condo for spring break 2010. Actually the calendar is open after March 14, 2010. Because the Destin Pelican Beach Resort is the favorite vacation destination for many here in the Dyersburg,Tennessee area, I would recommend that you grab your date while it is available.

Just click on this Pelican Beach Resort link to begin the process of booking this condo for your family vacation.

Destin Pelican Beach Resort - # 1 Vacation Destination for Dyersburg,Tn Residents

Back in October 09 my family and I took a vacation/business trip to the Destin Pelican Beach Resort. We completed our business transaction and headed straight for the beach behind the Pelican Beach Resort.

We could not believe it. We ran into 35 people from Dyersburg(our home town). Many of them told us that they make this trip every year and it is their favorite vacation destination.

This only confirmed what my family already knew from 10 straight years of vacationing in Destin(that the Destin Pelican Beach Resort is the ultimate vacation destination).

My neighbor is buying unit 1005 right next to my 1004

My good friend and close neighbor here in Dyersburg,Tn is buying a condo at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort. What is ironic is the condo is right next to my unit #1004.

My good friend and Realtor Scott Etter(who sold me unit 1004) is also selling this unit 1005.

Here is a video Scott just shot of this unit. I plan to do another video of 1004 next week when I am there at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort.

Are there any handicap accessible condos at the Pelican Beach Resort?

The answer is yes and no. Today I got an inquiry regarding handicap accessible condos at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort.

The answer depends on what you mean by handicap accessible! If you are looking for a wheel chair accessible unit then there are none in the building on the beach and one in the Terrace(building just inside the resort but not on the beach).

However, there are several one bedroom and two bedroom units with handrails and handicap accessible shower in one of the bathrooms located in the main building(on the beach).

If you are looking for a handicap accessible unit at the Pelican Beach Resort, just call us at 850-654-1425 and mention booking code A1080 and also what type of handicap accessible unit you are looking for.

Pelican Beach Resort Owner's Association Meeting

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my first owners meeting and let me say I was quite impressed. Not only did we elect a new board of directors for the Pelican Beach Resort Owner's Association but we also reviewed the just completed upgrades and upgrades planned for the common areas and encouraged by the board for the owner's units.

Completed upgrades included:
  1. Widening the paved entrance under the canopy just outside front doors of Pelican(Looks great!)
  2. Replaced every coin operated washer and dryer(in laundry room-to be used by 1 br condo renters and owners)

Common Area upgrades coming soon:
  1. Rekey every condo(within 1 month)
  2. Repaint the entire outside of the Pelican Beach Resort building.(within 4-5 months)
  3. Replace some of the equipment in the exercise room and  replacing parts of the sauna heating system.
  4. Upgrade the cable television signal to High Definition.
 Strongly Recommended upgrades for owners:
  1. Replace tv sets with HD flat screen tv's.
  2. Upgrade bathroom mirrors
  3. Upgrade kitchen cabinets hardware
  4. At some point, replace older central heat and air units to new required freon units
  5. Upgrade cabinets and counter tops
We were introduced to the Pelican Beach manager Herb Profitt and many of his staff. In my opinion the operations of the Pelican Beach resort is doing well and I am excited about the future of the Pelican Beach Resort.
