Perfect location, beautiful, clean condo!
Allison A. from Westfield, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2016 Our family of five fit comfortably in this beautiful condo overlooking the water. It had everything we needed. A special surprise was the net, games, and water toys that were generously left by previous guests and owner. It was an easy walk to the beach with free chairs and umbrella. We help to stay again next fall break! The kids loved this vacation. The heated pool and hot tub was also a big hit!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. These one bedroom condos are just perfect for the small family getaway, comfortably! There's no better place to enjoy the beach during Fall Break, than Okaloosa Island. Forget the huge crowds in bigger more populated cities, you're here to enjoy family time!! The memories you made will hopefully be some you and your children can cherish for years and years to come. Please come again soon to stay with Brooks and Shorey Resorts in Fort Walton Beach.
Rhonda F. from Rogers, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 Very clean condo. Wonderful view of beach. Close to shopping and entertainment.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thrilling to hear your escape to the Emerald Coast went well for you and yours! This is a one-of-a-kind condo, the murphy bed is a huge convenience and bonus to the extra guests! The updated appliances keep this condo fresh feeling while the subtle colors keep it relaxing. The best of both. Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach truly is a perfect vacation location, near enough to shopping and entertainment as you mentioned, while privacy remains a bonus to your vacation, way less crowded than neighboring cities. The unobstructed views of the Emerald Coast provide sweet serenity for your getaway. Thank you for being a guest of Brooks and Shorey Resorts and please come see us again in the future-with the return guest discount!!
Larry W. from Gainesville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Had a wonderful week at Pelican Isle! Accommodation was perfect for our family. Grandchildren loved having their own tv at each bunk. Room was very well supplied and owner's idea of " paying it forward" added a special touch. Only issue we had was when we returned from dinner one evening someone had parked in the parking space reserved for our room and no one "after hours" was available/nor returned our call. Disappointed in the lack of response from an otherwise very attentive staff.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for vacationing with us at the Pelican Isle 311. The pelican Isle is certainly a great location for a family get together! We are sorry someone parked in your designated spot however we hope the vehicle was moved within a timely manner. Bring the family back soon for more beachfront euphoria on the Emerald Coast!
Paul D. from Brunswick, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 We have been to Pelican Isle three out of the last four years. This time we went down to celebrate our first anniversary. We couldn't have picked a more perfect condo. We felt like we were in our home away from home. The condo was so inviting, comfortable and done in such great taste. The upgrades were beautiful. We WILL stay there again !!!! Compliments to the owners.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! AND SO IS YOUR FEEDBACK FOR US! Thank you sincerely for taking the time to submit our online questionnaire, we are thrilled to know everything went so well for you in this rental unit at the Pelican Isle. It's a gorgeous one bedroom condo, you described it so well. Happy Happy first anniversary to you, you did pick the best place to stay for your trip. We'll definitely relay your compliments to the owners of this condo, and we will look forward to having you back in 311 again very soon!!
Russell P. from Cordova, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in May, 2016 We have stayed in many condos over the years from Gulf Shores to Destin. Pelican Isle #311 has been the best of all of them. I have no complaints about the condo itself. They only thing that would make it better is to not allow smoking anywhere in the building including the balconies. It would have been nice to be able to use the balcony without breathing somebody else's drug addiction.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to deliver such a flattering review of the Pelican Isle 311, we are so glad that you have found the perfect beach front rental! We do hope that you were able to enjoy the picturesque scenery and partake in the accommodating features this property has to offer despite the minor inconvenience of the smoking. We do our best to only allow smoking in designated areas on site in order to be considerate of the specific needs of every guest. We hope that this will not be something that will hinder your decision to re book such an incredible rental.
A guest from Champaign, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 Beautiful condo; Gorgeous ViewThis was my first vacation rental. Had some hesitations along the way. Rhonda at vaycayhero helped relieve most of them.Desk service at PI was helpful.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to complete our online questionnaire. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your very first vacation home rental! You chose an awesome condo, 311 has so many wonderful upgrades the stainless steel appliances in the kitchen along with the granite makes preparing meals so nice. The huge flat screen TV's and the actual bed in the living room -I could go on and on! Really though you couldn't have made a better choice on your first rental, we're so glad you enjoyed Pelican Isle. Thank you sincerely for your business and please come stay with us again soon at the Pelican Isle!!
Sue H. from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 The condo was very clean. The kitchen was stocked with lots of utensils and pots and pans. There was plenty of storage space. We loved the reserved parking especially when it rained.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you greatly for the amazing review of your stay in our 311 condo at the Pelican Isle-you picked a great vacation home! OUr housekeeping department is awesome about keeping all kitchens stocked well, so thank you for that I'll relay the positive words to the right person. The RESERVED undercover garage parking spot that comes with this unit is a great perk to renting this particular condo. Your five star ratings tell everything. Please come see us again soon at the Pelican Isle.
A guest from Tullahoma, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 Fantastic! The condo was nice, the workers were super and the beach was beautiful.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. I couldn't have said it better myself! I may be partial, but I agree with you, Pelican Isle is FANTASTIC-especially this gorgeous 311 condo. Your FIVE STAR RATING across the board tells us everything! We appreciate you choosing Brooks and Shorey Resorts to trust to book your vacation home, and we're so glad to hear everything went so well. Please come see us again soon at the Pelican Isle!
A guest from Newburgh, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2015 We love this unit, but unfortunately mother nature didn't want to co-operate.Hurricane Patricia stirred up the algae in the gulf, causing a condition called red tide. It caused a lot of discomfort to most visitors, besides killing a lot of fish. This was no fault of the condo, but it did affect our enjoyment of the week we could have had.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. I'm so sorry that the red tide showed up for your vacation. These really are the most beautiful beaches in the world, like you said mother nature just doesn't always work how we'd like. Although it's not in our control, we wish we could have prevented it for sure! Thank you for staying at Pelican Isle with us at Brooks and Shorey Resorts, I'm glad at least that your ratings reflect that everything else was great on your trip. This is a great condo so I'm glad you were able to at least enjoy it. Red tide has since pushed way off shore so the beach is back to its gorgeous self. Please come see us again!
Keith M. from weaver, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 Could not have enjoyed our stay in Fort Walton Beach any more than this stay. Pelican Isle is a perfect location for us. 311 was a perfect! Great service from personnel, property extremely clean and attractive. The pool, hot tub, beach access, amenities of beach chairs, all SUPER!!!! We will be back and will recommend this property to others without reservation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review and nice comments. We are happy that you had Fantastic Vacation and look forward to seeing you again at the Pelican Isle.
Cindy M. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 Our stay at the Pelican Isle was fabulous. We could not have asked for a better vacation. The location and view were perfect. We loved it and will be back in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for this perfect review! We are happy that you had a fabulous stay at the Pelican Isle and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.
A guest from Linden, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 The room was very nice and was well cleaned. It was so nice to have covered parking and all the extras were great! Free movies, rental chairs included, extra chairs and beach toys, all very nice. The beds were very comfortable and our granddaughter loved the bunk bed with her own TV! The view from the balcony was beautiful and other than hearing people at the pool (and that couldn't be helped) it was so nice. The only suggestion I would make is to remove the towel cabinet in the master bathroom and replace it with a shelf over the toilet for towels.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review. We are happy that you had family fun and liked your condo. We hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Roanoke, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 Comfortable accommodations and a WONDERFUL view!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review, we are so glad that you had a great Spring Get-Away and look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Farmington, Arkansas recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 Our stay in Fort Walton was wonderful! The complex was great, the unit was perfect for us. The bed was very confortable, our kids loved the TVs in their bunks, the Murphy bed worked out really well. We have never been to Destin or Fort Walton in October, so we weren't sure what to expect, but the weather and water were perfect and we were so grateful to have no rain the entire time! Plus this time of year, the crowds were not bad at all. Loved our stay and we would definitely stay here again!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Sounds like you had a wonderful vacation! Thank you so much for the great review, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Pelican Isle and that unit 311 suited you and your family. Please call us when making your next reservation, we will happily apply a return guest discount!
Quentin C. from Walnut Ridge, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 only problem we had was the internet but they told us to get internet from room 411. it worked good in living room and balcony. not good in bedroom. I would revisit if price is comparable to other condos.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review for us. We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced with the internet, we have made the proper adjustments and the wireless internet is running well again in this unit.

So glad you came to stay with us AGAIN and that you enjoyed our unit 311 at Pelican Isle AGAIN-awesome! We appreciate your business with us at Brooks and Shorey Resorts and look forward to having you again on Okaloosa Island!
David S. from Denton, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Pelican Isle is nice, well kept and responsive when there has been a problem. We like Room 311, we have stayed in this room 2 to 3 times. The kitchen is nice and the bed in the bedroom is really good. The furniture in the living area is pretty new, but a little uncomfortable. Right now there is a little too much furniture. I would like to see them take out one of the chairs, trade the other chair for a lounger, maybe change out the couch, but it isn't too bad. We really enjoy the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella, the view from the room is great. We love sitting on the balcony eating breakfast and diner. Pelican Isle is our first choice when scheduling and room 311 is also our first choice. We are planning on staying in a different room next year just to change things up a little. (maybe the furniture will be a little more comfortable).
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for being return customer and for your excellent review! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Be sure to ask abut our return customer discount when you decide to come back!

Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Be sure to call us to make your next reservation... We will be happy to apply your return guest discount!
Phil M. from Mt. Carmel, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 This was a wonderful vacation for my family and I. We had such a great time relaxing in this beautiful condo. Barbara was very nice! We loved watching the dolphins every morning while drinking coffee on the balcony. A.J.'s and McGuires, in Destin has the best food around. Took a pontoon boat to Crab Island on the last day and had a blast! So much fun! Only complaint-The murphy bed's sheets had not been changed when we got there. The upgraded kitchen was very nice with granite countertops! My kids were so sad when we had to leave.:( Thank you for the memories! We will be back!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for your excellent review and all your nice comments! We are very happy you had enjoyed your stay, the condo and all the activities around. Our apologies about the murphy bed's sheets, we are glad you reported it and we were able to remedy the situation immediately. We hope to see you again at the Pelican Isle very soon!
A guest from Fairhope, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2014 This was one of the best vacations we have had. Great location and property was decorated great . Enjoyed the extra perks. Chair and umbrella . Movie rentals and golf. Can't wait to go again .
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and had a wonderful time. Yes, this condo is really beautiful and the decor is great! We hope you will come back soon and repeat the best vacation!
A guest from Roanoke, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 PI 311 had everything we needed for a delightful vacation. We just happened to choose a week with 15 -20 inches of rain! We were quite comfortable inside our condo, but will hopefully be able to return when we can enjoy more sunshine!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review! We are very glad you enjoyed your stay despite the weather and hope to see you in the near future!

Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the stellar review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay at the Pelican Isle and we hope to see you again in the near future.
David S. from Denton, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Great property, great condo. I really like having the larger flat screen TVs in the front room and bedroom. Nice furnishings and comfortable couch. I really appreciated being able to check in to our room on time this year. We have came to Pelican Island for 3 or 4 years now, and this is the first time that the condo was actually ready at 4pm like it is supposed to be. So, thanks to the cleaning crew for getting their jobs done on time.
Pamela M. from Menomonee Falls, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 We like the location of the property and the size of the complex. This is the second year we rented this unit. The sofa and the king bed seem to be getting quite soft and aren't very comfortable. The noise in the hall from children running around late at night was more disturbing this year. Other than that we enjoyed our stay very much.
A guest from Olatha, KS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 We enjoyed our week long stay in this quiet part of Fort Walton Beach, right on the Gulf. This unit is clean, nicely decorated, and has a beautiful, well appointed kitchen that allowed us to cook many meals in, so we could avoid all the tourist-trap restaurants in the area. The included "beach service" is a plus. A minor annoyance is the noise from the pool, which is directly below this unit. Everything else is "First Cabin". We would definitely rent this unit again, and would consider other units in Pelican Isle if necessary.
Michael T. from Canton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in September, 2012 We have for a long time vacationed on the east coast, often Hilton Head, but find the Fort Walton/Destin area to be absolutely wonderful. We have stayed at other properties on Santa Rosa Blvd but prefer Pelican Isle. You can't beat the view of the ocean and the accomodations. The staff on site was very professional and helpful. We are returning again for two weeks in April 2013.
Brenda W. from Walker, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 Our birthday gift to our adult daughters every year is a getaway from their everyday life with family & careers. So me & my daughters love to go to the beach, shop, eat & relax. I'm going to list a few things, but by no means did any of these things keep us from having a wonderful time.1.Due to a few storms out in the gulf, the water wasn't as pretty and blue as it usually is and one day the sand flies or something were awful & kept biting.2. The rental was very comfortable & roomy. We did notice that when we were making up the Murphy bed the pillows had hair on them which you really don't want to see. Also, the hair dryer one on the wall in the master bedroom was unplugged & when we plugged it in to use it it did not work. That wasn't a problem because two of us had brought our own hair dryers. 3. We were never certain if the door was locked, so one of us would have to go outside while the other locked or unlocked so we would know which way to turn it. It would have been nice to have a security chain or something. Other than these few things our trip was great and we do plan to return next year.
Paul C. from Hixson, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 You really could not ask for a better place to stay. Clean, staff was friendly, views outstanding. Our children (9 and 8) loved the bunks with televisions after playing all day. Feel free to uses the flashlight we left for some nightime beach walks for Sand Crabs and other sea creatures that come out at night. We look forward to a return visit next Labor Day!
A guest from Kenner, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Once we arrived, I felt a bit misled by the website. First, there was a range of prices but no itemized daily price, just the total dollar amount due for the number of days spent. The add on fees, additional insurance that is highly recommended/required, in addition to the local taxes was excessive. The final price was more than twice the lowest quoted prices for the condo. Secondly when I inquired about the location of the condo in relation to exposure to noise from the pool I was told being on the 3rd floor would put me far above the pool noise, which was not the case. Also, the master bedroom did not have a view of the Gulf (as implied), but was directly next to the entrance door, leading to an all access hallway, where all guests on the floor must pass & was very noisy with other guest constantly walking by. Finally, there were no directions on how to connect to the wifi network (had to wait till next day when staff arrived) and the complimentary beach chairs/umbrellas were collected early, so we could not enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the beach in the evening with our chairs. For the amount of money spent, I did not feel I got the overall experience that was sold. Great view of the beach from the balcony, but I will not spend my next Gulf vacation at this property.
A guest from LaVergne, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 The condo was beautiful the view was beautiful everything was great!!! hands down the best vacation I have taken lately.
Gladys E. from Lawrenceville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 The property was excellent, pretty decoration, perfect location, very nice weather....can't ask for anything else. We will definitely be back to Pelican Isle-311.
Room fine but building needs updating/maintainenance
A guest from wetumpka, alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2012 The overall property (building) seemed a little run down - chairs and rugs in the entrances needed replacing and the landscaping needed some attention. Someone left something in the pool one day which rendered it unusable for 2 days. The unit was clean but does not come with any kitchen soap, only 2 trash bags (for a six night stay), no paper towels. There were adequate kitchen cooking utensils and pans. Unfortunately the freezer only made about 2 trays of ice so we were constantly running out for bags of ice. There is only 3 places to sit in the living room since the murphy bed takes up most of one wall and you cannot put anything in front of it - unless you want to sit in the dining room table chairs. Overall it was satisfactory but it so small it is only comfortable for 4 guests. I think the management company could do several upgrades in the lobby and grounds area that would make the condos more attractive from the entrance.
A guest from Arlington, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 Had an awesome stay at Pelican Isle in May. The 1 bedroom condo was clean, cool, and very comfortable! We will definitely be coming back soon!
Jason S. from Sevierville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2012 Have satyed at the pelican isle for past 3 years. The people at the front desk was rude this year!!! Not very helpful!!
A guest from Menomonee Falls, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012 This was our first visit to the area and we will definitely plan to return. The beaches were outstanding, the property location was great and the unit was comfortable, well equipped and maintained. We met nice families and people on the beach. This is an outstanding destination to relax and enjoy the sun and beach.
A guest from Avon, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 This unit is nicely furnished and the location and access to the beach was wonderful. The beach service was added bonus. However the elevator was broken part of the time we were there and the property had a wierd smell. The unit was clean and updated but I had a hard time getting past the musty, fishy smell.
Kim W. from North Little Rock, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 I understand that tenants usually provide a bulk of the disposables, however, no salt/pepper, no coffee filters, no paper towels. the only thing in the unit was toilet paper. So what happens to the left overs that are left behind? Just curious. never had that problem before in a condo rental.
A guest from Beaumont, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2011 Would definately recommend FWB area and Pelican Isle for a family environment. Good soundproofing in the condos, only outside noise was from the common outside entry walkways/elevator area. Great views of the beach & easy walk over access from Pelican Isle Condos, average pool if you are interested in that. Fully furnished kitchen was nice-free wi-fi, dvd player in all tv's (#4 total), and Washer/Dryer a plus! We WILL COME AGAIN!
Joe E. from Memphis, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 With 15 to 20 trips to the panhandle first time the weather was an issue. other than that, once again another pleasent vacation. Room and staff were great. Pelican Isle 311 outstanding condo.
DIANE M. from Tulsa, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 Condo was great, beach was wonderful. Murphy bed mattress really needs to be replaced, other than than would like to rent that unit again.
A guest from Lexington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011 the only reason why the manager got a 4 was because the hours are a little inconvenient. Check-in process in very time limited. Since we never saw anyone in charge of monitoring at night, people were always in the pool way past the closing time, creating a lot of noise when we just wanted to sit on the balcony to relax and hear the waves. Otherwise our condo was perfect for our needs. The owners thought of all the extras we might need.
William C. from Douglasville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2011 We loved this unit. Everything was beautiful and in working order. It makes a difference when the owner takes the time to dot all the I's and cross all the T's. All the extra's (tv's in the bunks, murphy bed etc.) makes this unit stand out. We will definitely be coming back and will definitely be requesting this unit.
A guest from New Lenox, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2011 Didn't know what to expect since we've never really done FL before (other than Disney). We liked the kitchen upgrades in the condo and everything had a nice well-taken-of feel. The condo was not oversold, but we did think there would be alittle more space since it accomodates 6 and we had 5. Two bedrms. might have been better for our group. Once we stayed organized, it was fine though. Our only complaint was our reception at the front desk. We were excited to be there and were looking for some gen'l info. only to receive one word answers to most questions from the front desk. Not a nice original feeling and two diff. people from our party walked away saying the same thing at diff. times. Maybe we're too spoiled w/ Mexico and their extreme hospitality though. Thanks for an overall nice getaway! The attendants on the beach and chairs were great and much enjoyed!
April P. from Cumberland Gap, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 We had a great stay! The location was beautiful. It was better than we could have imagined. There was an issue with one of the girls at the front desk about parking. She was somewhat rude in a phone call to us after we followed directions from the receptionist from the day before. But all in all, a wonderful trip! We plan on coming back.
Donna B. from Lilburn, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010 We have stayed 6 times at Pelican Isle and it is like home away from home. Unit 311 was especially nice, beautifully decorated and well furnished with everything we needed. We'll definitely be back!
John O. from Prattville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2010 Pelican Isle is an ideal location... close to where you need to be, but just enough off the beaten path for a quiet getaway. Already planning a return visit
A guest from Keatchie, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2010 I did not like having to give a $300 damage deposit, I feel like that should have been done when I made the reservations. The only credit card I had was my debit card, therefore that's why, I do not like leaving a copy of my debit card around. The beach service each day was really nice, wished the pool was larger or there were two pools, but we enjoyed our stay. Forget to ask about checking out before the receptionist arrived and had to call the emergency number the night before, they were very quick in responding to my phone call.
