VRBO Review Destin Pelican Beach Resort

I just wanted to share with my readers a review I just received from a recent vacationer and renter of my Pelican Beach Resort Destin condo. Paula found my Destin condo on VRBO and she posted this review there.

Our family just returned from staying a week in this beautifully remodeled condo. The pictures accurately reflect the gorgeous gulf front view and appearance of the unit. My 4-yr-old daughter loved watching movies in her bunk area. Our bed was very comfortable. The granite and stainless are beautiful and the dishwasher is the quietest I've ever heard... now I must get one of those! There was never a wait for the elevators. Having the washer/dryer across the hall was convenient. The resort's staff was always friendly and helpful. The onsite market and beachside bar was a plus. The resort's location was centrally located to restaurants and activities. We enjoyed the beach in the morning and the pool in the afternoon (it's partially shaded by the building). Recommend dining at McGuire's, Dewey Destin, The Back Porch, and Pompano Joe's. Activities we enjoyed: The Original Sea Blaster Sunset Dolphin Cruise with Capt. Larry was the best!; Wed. night outdoor concert at Baytowne Wharf; Thurs. night fireworks at HarborWalk; Saturday night outdoor concert at HarborWalk; drive to Seaside and have lunch at Bud & Alley's.

October 7-11 Available Today At The Pelican Beach Resort

As of today October 7-11 is available at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort for your fall break.

The reason I say as of today is because I rent this unit most of the time but I also have the Pelican Management team also trying to rent it.

Much of my rentals come from my VRBO bookings. Many potential Florida VRBO renters inquire as to my availability and price and I quote those rates(sometimes 2-3 times a day for same dates to different people inquiring).

If you see available dates on my calendar and like the quote(text me at 731-589-7841) I give you(always cheaper than the management company can quote you), please don't wait to book with me. Another VRBO potential renter could book those same dates with me or the management company could book the same dates for someone else.

Destin Picked In Top Ten Most Beautiful Places

Destin,Florida has been included in Good Morning America's top 10 most beautiful places in America.

The main reason Destin was chosen is because of all the beautiful white sand beaches which allow all types of water sports.

Here is a link to that article in the Destin newspaper Destin Log.

My family has traveled around the world and never found a more beautiful place than Destin.

Just Returned from Destin Pelican Beach Resort

My family and I just returned from a short vacation at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort.
We had a great time but just didn't get enough time there(never would). We spent most of our time on the beach but did sneak in a Big Kahuna Water Park excursion.

The beach was beautiful, the water temperature pleasant and the temperature in the low 90's.

If you are planning a Destin Florida beachfront vacation, just pick a open date over on the left and call or text me at 731-589-7841 for more details.

Is There Still Oil on Destin's Beaches?

Is there oil still on Destin's beaches? You better believe it! Last time I was there about 6 weeks ago I could not find any suntan oil to purchase anywhere. There is lots of oil on the beaches in Destin but it is all suntan oil.

Actually except for a day or so last year when some mini tarballs washed ashore at Destin, we never even saw any oil from that runaway oil rig. I think the media pretty much scared everyone about that oil and most cancelled their Florida vacations. That just might explain why we are experiencing record bookings at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort for the spring/summmer seasons of 2011.

Call or text me(Mike Frazier) if you want to book in your family florida vacation at the Pelican Beach. I own #1004 but have friends who also own Pelican units.

August Busiest Month at Pelican Beach Resort in Destin

I used to think that June and July were the busiest months at the Pelican Beach Resort in Destin but I have decided that August is the busiest time to go to Destin and the Resorts of Pelican Beach.

Last night I had a cancellation for August 6-10 and I called this morning to make me a owners reservation for those dates and the slot was already booked. I called the front desk and they told me they are 100% booked(for 1 bedrooms) for August 6-10. I don't remember the Pelican ever being 100% booked. When an owner cannot go it must be really booked up.
