  • Magnificent and Enjoyable


    Everyone had a great time. The thing that we wanted to do was close by. We enjoyed being at home away from home.

    Manager's Response:

    Tamara, we are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. While we want our guests to enjoy their stay here, we also need them to respect our house rules and treat the property as their own. After your departure, we found the doors were left wide open, smoked inside the house and left a bunch of trash scattered around the house. We are accustomed to providing 5-star experiences and look forward to hosting many satisfied guests.

  • Magnificent


    My family truly enjoyed our stay at Pelican Splash. My great grandson, a four year old wanted to know why we could not just stay there forever because he said, “This is his funnest place ever.” Of course he and everyone else want to visit again. Thank you so much for a wonderful and enjoyable home stay away from home.

  • Great Getaway


    Our family really enjoyed our stay at "Pelican Splash". The location is super close to everything but in the congested part of the city. Grocery stores, shopping plazas, gas stations, fast food restaurants, entertainment and the beach are less than 10 miles away. The house itself is really nice. The downstairs area has a sofa bed, 2 twin over full bunk beds and a queen/king bedroom with an en suite bath that has a shower & spa tub. This area is separate from the main area of the house, only accessible through the pinpad, locked sliding glass door.The main area of the house can only be accessed by stairs, whether using the front or back entrance. There is a kitchen, dining, 2 bathrooms, laundry room and living room area. There are 3 bedrooms: 1 king, 1 queen & 1 twin over full bunk bed. There are 4(?) tvs on the property, 1 in each of the living areas and 1 in each of the king bedrooms. There family next door with dogs but they can be easily "shoo'd" away. The hot tub was a great added amenity.Things to note: extra towels and washcloths are recommended if you have a large group or be prepared to wash a lot, bring a firestick or roku stick for some of the tvs, the sliding glass doors don't have blinds or curtains.The rental was exactly as pictured. Check in instructions were easy to use and understand. Recommendations for where to eat and explore was a great bonus. Owners responded quickly to all forms of communication.Highly recommend!!Recommendations for owners:

  • Great stay for a birthday celebration!


    The perfect house for our girls trip. Plenty of beds and space to hang out and play games. The kitchen was a bit small, but we were able to prepare a few meals there.

    It was a minor inconvenience to have to go outside to get upstairs for coffee in the mornings, since it was raining during our stay. Not terrible, just something we weren’t aware of before we got there.

    Beautiful views and comfortable beds. Wish we could’ve stayed longer.
