Description from the owner
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 pool is all yours. No sharing with the neighborhood or a condo association. You can swim anytime you like, as both the back yard and pool are lighted.
Don't be crammed into a cramped condo. This beautiful home with its nautical decor and new porcelain tile floors is perfect for large families or groups. You have room...Read more

Additional Location Information
The Destin area is consistently rated as one of the top beach locations in the country. The major feature here is miles and miles of beautiful white sand beaches. Destin is a family-oriented destination, with all sorts of water sports available - surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, jet skiing, deep sea fishing. You can go on an afternoon cruise, a dolphin watching cruise, a dinner cruise. You can rent pontoon boats and other boats for boating on the bay or the ocean. There are a couple of locations not far away where you can go on a "swim with the dolphins" cruise.
Destin has a water park and a kiddie amusement park, called The Track, which has go-carts and water rides for kids. There is a marine park in nearby Fort Walton Beach that has dolphin and other animal shows. It's not a big one like Sea World, but is nice for kids. There are also a couple of museums around and a zoo not too far away. Blackwater State Forest isn't too far away with canoe trips on the Blackwater River available - the water isn't rough at all.
The Pelican's Elbow is within minutes of all that Destin has to offer, including shopping at the largest designer outlet mall in the USA, world famous deep-sea fishing and a dozen fine golf courses available to the public.
After a fun-filled day at the beach, you may want to cook a family BBQ on the gas grill or take an easy stroll to a seafood restaurant right on the gulf. Captain Dave's, less than 4 blocks from the house, offers great seafood, with a dining room overlooking the ocean. Kenny D's, right across the street from Captain Dave's, has a Cajun menu. Two other good oceanfront seafood restaurants, The Crab Trap and Pompano Joe's, are a short drive down the beach to the west and east. And, of course, the Destin area offers loads of dining establishments, from fast food to fine dining. You'll find menus and directions to many of them at the Pelican.
