I am starting to get multiple VRBO requests each day from vacationers trying to book their Destin Pelican Beach Resort vacation this year.

With this being said, many of these requests coming in are for dates already taken. If you are planning a trip to Destin for vacation, do not wait before booking as the spring and summer slots are quickly filling up.

My availability calendar is over on the left side so check for your dates.

Call or text Mike Frazier(731-589-7841) to book your Destin beachfront condo rental.

New Low Cost Airfares To Destin

In case you missed the announcement, Vision Airlines began 737 jet service to Destin.
Here is the announcement down below and the map of cities they service into Destin up above.

New Service Begins in March!

Special Fare Sale - $49*/each way, when booked now through 1/23/11!

(01/18) - At a press event held today at the HarborWalk Village in Destin, officials with Vision Airlines announced new direct flights to the Emerald Coast starting in March with introductory fares as low as $49 each way.

In December, Vision Airlines began its 737 jet service to Florida's Emerald Coast. As a result of incredibly positive results, Vision Airlines is expanding its routes to include over 20 U.S. cities beginning this March. That makes reaching our sugar-white sands and emerald-green waters easier than ever. With rates starting at just $49 each way, flying direct on Vision Airlines can be even more affordable than driving.

For more information on Vision Airlines' new routes and fares, visit or call 877-FLY-A-JET.

With discount airfare to Destin and a discounted beachfront condo rental in Destin, it doesn't get any better than this.

Best Condo Rental Deal On The Beach In Destin

Where can you find the best condo rental deal on the beach in Destin,Florida? The best deal for the money is unit #1004 at Destin's Pelican Beach Resort.

Many VRBO's are contacting me about renting my one bedroom(sleeps 6) beachfront condo in Destin. I give them a great price(cut the rate from 20-25%) and many times they tell me mine is not quite the cheapest rate but with the many amenities at the Pelican Beach Resort and inside my unit #1004 they are ready to book.

What i think is really grabbing their attention is the new hallway bunks and each complete with its own tv/dvd combo units at the foot of the bed. Also, there is a recessed area(behind and slightly above pillow) with a light and plug-in(for kids cell phone or Ipod charging). These bunks also have a dimmer switch for the individual recessed lights.

I did not leave dad out though. I have a new flat screen tv in the bedroom mounted on the wall(slight angle for dad laying in bed).

Call or text me at 731-589-7841 and I can give you a great rate and a promise that you will have a fantastic time staying in my Destin beachfront condo.

New Bookings Coming In During The Inclement Weather

What are people doing indoors during the bad weather sweeping across the country? They are going online and booking their family vacations to the Destin Panhandle.

Over the last few days I have booked 4 different Destin VRBO requests and all of them were for a week stay in my Destin Pelican Beach Resort unit #1004.

Last week I also had a sign-up by a snowbird for the month of February.

From what I can remember last year, bookings were slow in coming in January and did not really heat up until the middle of February. Maybe this is a good sign for 2011.
You can call or text me(Mike) at 731-589-7841 to get started with your Destin beachfront vacation reservation.

Figure Rates At Pelican Beach Resort

I am getting many inquiries of how I set my rates for my Destin Pelican Beach Resort condo.

First of all let me say that I have the front desk at the Pelican managing my property. What that means to you is if there is any problem you can call the front desk and they will take care of it immediately. This costs me more money but is better for my renters.

The management company charges me a per renter fee but allows me some flexibility on that fee if I find the renter.

Therefore I am able to pass on to you some extra savings from the regular Pelican Beach Resort rate.

Here is the rate sheet charged by the management company at the front desk of the Pelican.

What many people do not understand is the Pelican Management Company offers a early booking discount and that runs anywhere from 15-20% and I always try to undercut that rate to give you an even larger discount.

I can be reached on my cell phone by text or voice at 731-589-7841.

Sweet Deal For Month Of February

My February renter just canceled for my Destin Pelican Beach Resort unit #1004. Therefore I am prepared to offer a sweet deal for the month of February.

Normal rate is $1300 plus $100 booking fee and 11% Florida tax for total of $1554.00.

My Destin Pelican Beach Resort discounted February rate is $1150 plus applicable fees. My cell phone is 731-589-7841 so call or text me for more information.

Update 1-12-11 February has been taken!

VRBO Inquiries All Ask About Hallway Bunk Beds And Tv/Dvd Players

Almost every Pelican Beach Resort VRBO inquiry I have received in the last few days has wanted to know if #1004 hallway bunk beds really have flat screen tv/dvd players?

Back a few weeks ago, my brother-in-law and I completely rebuilt the hallway bunks and also installed new flat screen 19" tv/dvd players in each bunk. Not only that but there is a recessed area behind each pillow complete with plug in for electronics and recessed light w/dimmer switch. Did I go overboard or what?

We also installed a new 26" flat screen tv on the wall in the bedroom.

Now mom,dad and kids will all be happy:) My cell phone # is 731-589-7841
