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 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.

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.
