Lovely rental, so up to date. The overall experience was great. The Pelican Beach is well maintained. The only downside would be the master bedroom is located along the public walkway so some noise can be heard, but balcony overlooking the beach is wonderful, really enjoyed breakfast and lunch looking at ocean. In addition working with Have Travel Memories was great. When my husband forgot his insulin in the refrigerator they went above and beyond to mail it to us, great folks. I will not hesitate to use Have Travel Memories again and also stay in the same unit in Pelican Beach resort. Oh by the way, great time of the year to go to Destin, crowds not as heavy in the restaurants.
Please hurry back and stay with us. This property is as close to the beach as any vacation condo gets. Thank you for the review!

The facility was pretty on the outside. The beach was beautiful. The unit was clean; however, the sofa needs to be replaced. It sank down in the middle when you sat on it and it was very uncomfortable. I had to get spare blankets and pillows to put under the sofa cushions so that is was somewhat confortable. Also, the linens were a bit tired as well. On the upside, our package included golf every day at two nice courses so my husband really enjoyed that. Check-in was easy since we went straight to the unit with the door code. Destin has some great restaurants such as Dewey Destins, The Front Porch, Harbor Dock and Fisherman's Wharf.

We had booked this property for 5 days in October when the weather and water were absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately after only being there for 36 hours or so, we had to pack up and leave for a medical emergency. Our college student, who was supposed to join us on vacation, ended up in the hospital with a very bad case of a Roto-virus and we had to take care of him. I called Have Travel Memories to let them know of our circumstance, and let them know we had to check out early. I wish we could have a "re-do":) As far as the property is concerned, We loved the view and the convenience of the resort's location. We also liked the free Track attractions. We might have taken advantage of other offers had we been able to stay longer. Love being right on the beach, but the chair service makes it very difficult to get to the water if you have your own. The resort and the condo are beginning to show their age, and we prefer to have the master away from main hallway.(noise issue). In all, we enjoyed our 36 hours of beach life!
