WiFi at Pelican Beach Resort

A couple of years ago right after I purchased my unit at the Pelican Beach I noticed that there was WiFi in my unit. Actually I was picking up the WiFi at the front desk. A couple of months ago I could no longer pick up that signal.

After consulting with Joan at the Pelican, I purchased a Linksys wireless router and had Thomas at the front desk install it in my unit #1004 Pelican Beach Resort Destin.

There is WiFi again(at least in unit #1004). Now mom and the kids can all get on their Ipods,Ipads,netbooks and notebook computers without being wired up.

Looking for the Cheapest Destin Beachfront Condo Rental

Are you looking for the cheapest Destin beachfront condo rental? Well this is not it.

After we purchased almost 2 years ago we have spent over $25,000 on new granite counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, new vanities in both bathrooms, new hallway bunks complete with their own tv/dvd entertainment centers, new paint and lots of hours and hours doing much of this work.

I have my unit on Destin VRBO and get lots of e-mails and texts several times a week looking for a good deal. I will do a good deal but I probable will not be the cheapest but mine is one of the best. There are 3-4 Destin beachfront condos at Pelican Beach Resort that are consistently booked almost 98% of the time and #1004(mine) is one of them.

If you are looking to book your Destin vacation and pay a reasonable rate and my unit is available(calendar on the left) call or text me at 731-589-7841.

Two Year Anniversary Coming Up At Destin's Pelican Beach Resort

In October 2009 the Frazier family purchased our very own Destin Pelican Beach Resort condo. This Destin beachfront condo rental sleeps 6.

On the day we closed on our unit, we walked out on the beach behind the Pelican and ran into 35 people(one of these families was booked in our new unit) from our hometown about 450 miles away. We considered that a "good sign".

Not only has our family enjoyed the condo but we have continued upgrading it so others can enjoy it since it is on the rental program.

There are pictures and videos over on the left that shows the renovations that we have completed and also an availability calendar in case you are wanting to book your Destin Florida beachfront vacation.

Thanks to all my previous guests for booking with us and for helping us take care of this condo. I am sure the Frazier family will be down in Destin sometime during the month of October.

Non Traditional Wedding In Destin

My wife's favorite place to play in Destin is across the street from the Pelican Beach Resort at the Big Kahuna.

Did you know they host weddings there? I didn't either.

Here is an article just written(complete with video) in one of the local newspapers there.

When Is the Best Time to Vacation in Destin,Florida?

My family and I all concur that the best time to vacation in Destin is in October. The daytime air temperature is still in the high 70's or low 80's and the water temperature is still warm enough to swim in.

The crowds on the beaches are absent as is the high traffic count on US 98 through downtown Destin.

We fly our small plane down to Destin,Florida and October has much more stable weather for our flights to and from Destin. The Pelican Beach Resort is only 1 mile from the airport fbo where we park the plane.

The entire month of October is the fishing rodeo in Destin so a great time to go deep sea fishing and check in your catch at the harbor docks to see if you are the winner in your division. Last October I chose to do some shark fishing and caught a very nice one but did not boat him(released).

October has some of the lowest rates of the season at Destin's Pelican Beach Resort. I often ask potentials renters of my condo why they do not wait until October to book their Fall Break vacation!

If you want to rent one of the nicest beachfront condos in Destin at a discounted rate then contact me direct at 731-589-7841.
