About the Property
It's time to kick off your shoes, relax and get away from everyday. And The Pelican's Elbow is the vacation home to help you do just that. It has everything you need for that relaxing week at the seashore, including a large private swimming pool and patio - great for morning coffee instead of a morning commute.
The Pelican's Elbow is pet friendly (with fee), so there's no need to leave your pet in a kennel or with the neighbors for a week.
So, don't be crammed into a cramped condo. This beautiful home with its nautical decor, largest in the neighborhood, is perfect for large families or groups. You have room to stretch out (2020 square feet), with a large living room, four bedrooms, two baths, a spacious family room, full kitchen and full laundry room.
The home features top quality memory foam mattresses in all bedrooms to ensure a great night's sleep, porcelain tile floors and flat screen HD TVs throughout.
The large master bedroom features a king size bed and private bath. The Kahuna and Palm bedrooms both have queen beds. The Twin bedroom features two twin beds. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan, HDTV and video player. There are two queen sleeper sofas in separate living/family rooms.
The large back yard is fenced for privacy and security and features a large private L-shaped swimming pool (28-1/2 ft long by 9-13 ft wide) and tropical landscaping. You have a gas grill and picnic table/umbrella on the patio.
At the end of a great day in the sun you can enjoy the spacious family room with 46" flat screen cable HDTV, DVD player and selection of books, more than 175 videos (many of them kid's videos), and family games. Wireless Internet is provided.
Kick back, soak up some sun and work on your tan (or lounge in the shade) and enjoy life at The Pelican's Elbow.

My family, sisters and their family had a lovely time at the pelicans elbow. It was very clean, plenty of room for 10 people. Everything was provided( of course besides food/drinks) that made it easy for us to travel from Virginia and Texas. We would definitely vacation there again!

We would be most happy to host your group at Pelican's Elbow on a future vacation.
The Pelican’s Elbow was a wonderful vacation home. The gated community was very quiet and close to the beach. The home was spacious and the property was very clean. It was perfect for our 2 small dogs and it was much more affordable than other properties with the same specifications. We will keep this property in mind for future trips.

Helpful, kind owner
I contacted the owner to book a week at this house. Our week was already booked. The owner was unlike management companies. He referred me to home owners in the same area that had a similar fine to his. We booked one of those thanks to this owner. He also sent me tips for our wheelchair bound grandchild. I have not previously found this kindness in my search for a home on Miramar Beach. So grateful for a man with a good heart. Thank you sir.
