Please Note: The Pelican Beach Resort building will be going through a project this upcoming fall and winter that will include some repairs, weatherproofing and the entire building will be re-painted. Work will be performed Monday-Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The outdoor pool and hot tub on the east side of the property will be tentatively closed from October 21st to December 27th and the Gulf side pool and hot tub will be tentatively closed from December 28 to March 3. The resort will have at least one heated pool and hot tub open at all times. Please note: With this project, there will be some dust and dirt in the areas in progress. There will also be some noise, and swing-stage scaffolding hanging from the building. Although the schedule may change, the swing-stage scaffolding is scheduled to be in front our unit sometime between November 24 to December 27. At this time, the balcony furniture will be removed and the balcony door blocked from opening for safety reasons. To compensate for this inconvenience and loss of balcony access, rates quoted will include a 20% discount.

What Destin Offers
There are so many wonderful restaurants nearby. We love to visit the harbor area. Other popular spots are the Donut Hole for breakfast, the Back Porch with beach views for lunch or dinner and, of course, since we are from New Orleans, Louisiana Lagniappe. Dewey Destins and Beauchamps are located on the habor as well and are fun places to hang out.
Destin Commons outdoor shopping mall is a short distance away. It has a huge movie theatre complex, Hard Rock Cafe, Bass Pro Fishing shop, Johnnie Rockets, and all the mall shops you have come to know and love in a beautiful outdoor setting. The Silver Sands factory outlet mall is only seven miles east.
If it's deep sea fishing you like, you'll find many captains and shipping vessels for hire at the Destin Harbor, only three miles to the west of Pelican. Or, you might just like to walk along the docks and view the day's catch. Also, Fort Walton Beach, just a few miles to the west, has a new pier, where the fishing is reported to be wonderful.
The Emerald Coast was recently picked as the #1 Beach in America by USA Today readers and selected for the 8th year in a row as the Best Beach in the South and Top Family Destination by Southern Living readers! Coastal Living reported the Destin Harbor to be one of the top harbors in the US.

About the owner: We are Paul and Julie Pritchard. We both grew up in New Orleans and both graduated from the Univesity of New Orleans with degrees in Accounting. In 1981, we moved to the Atlanta area and have been living in Roswell, Georgia ever since. We have three children, two sons and one daughter. Although all three were born in Atlanta, they, like us, have grown up to be die-hard LSU fans. We now have five grandchildren.
We have been coming to Destin for many years and discovered the Pelican Beach Resort in 2003. We bought our two bedroom condo in 2004. Although most of our guests come to relax and unwind, we come and spend much of our time trying to find ways to make our condo more comfortable and enjoyable for our family and guests.
We hope that you will will visit with us and make a practice of coming back year after year as so many of our other guests have done.
