Great Family Activity while staying at Pelican Beach Resort Destin

One of my all time favorite things to do when vacationing at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort is to fish off the Okaloosa Island Pier in Ft. Walton. This is only about 10-12 minutes away from Destin's Pelican Beach Resort.

Here is a link to their website and be sure to check out the blogger who is posting fishing reports. You will also appreciate the pictures of fish taken off the pier and notice how little it costs to fish off the pier since no license is required.

I have lots of fond memories of catching Bonita, Spanish Mackeral and my favorite salt water fish King Mackeral all off the Okaloosa Island Pier.

Who Manages and/or Advertises Rentals at Pelican Beach Resort Destin

Today I was surfing the net and looking at all the different companies claiming to be able to rent condos at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort.

Did you know that the number one site for condo rentals at the Pelican Beach Resort Destin is the Pelican Beach Resort Management Company on-site at the Pelican Beach? They handle about 65% of all the units next to the beach and most of the Terrace units.

In addition to the Pelican Company, Southern Resorts, Newman-Dailey, and Southern Resorts also manage some of the units.

You will also find units advertised on the VRBO site as well as homeaway and vacation These last two are tied into the VRBO site.

Sites advertising units at the Pelican are Expedia, Bookit,, and several other places.

Why would anyone go to a middle man to rent a Pelican unit when they can come to me and rent one of the nicest one bedroom two bath condo units(sleeps 6)on the rental program. Actually I have my unit in the management program of the pelican Beach Resort on-site management but have the ability to set my own rates.

Click here to see pictures of unit #1004 and check availability.

Slideshow from Pelican Beach Website

It is snowing again outside here in Tennessee. I bet the weather is nice down in Destin,Florida. I was just surfing the internet and happened upon the main Pelican Beach Resort website when I ran across this slideshow presentation of what you normally see while on the beach at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort. Here is that link to the slideshow.

Destin Chamber has links to webcams

Today I was wondering what the weather was like in Destin,Florida? Then I remembered the Destin Chamber of Commerce website that has live webcams of 2-3 different areas of Destin including the Destin harbor and beaches.

I was also wondering if the snowbird is enjoying my unit #1004 at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort?

My family and I were last down at Destin back in December right before Christmas and the weather was cold but we had a great time. There is just something magical about playing on the beach or sitting in the living room of the condo looking out the patio doors and all you see is blue skies and blue water. Early in the morning you also see fishing boats heading out to sea from the Destin harbor and late in the afternoon you see their return.

Are you getting the picture of why my family and I love Destin so much and why we love staying at the Pelican Beach Resort Destin?

If you are interested in vacationing in Destin and staying at the Pelican Beach Resort, click this link to look at more pictures of my unit and to also check availability. If you book a vacation, be sure to remember to use booking code A1080.
