Pelican\'s Rest what an absolutely amazing little gem. From the moment we parked it was easy to unwind and relax. What more does one need - heating, hot water, comfortable bed and bio-loo. Murray & Lauren Sydney

Very tidy and welcoming in a stunning natural location. Breathtaking morning views. Loved it! Julian & Caroline S.A.

We arrived in the dark and found a warm and welcoming home. This haven has meant a restful stay. Well situated for day trips. I certainly want to come back next year. Penny Bartley Adelaide.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the owners other location. But the drive there was beautiful. The location amongst the trees was so tranquil. There was no complimentary milk but there was coffee and tea.

We were well prepared anyway. We enjoyed the rustic living and being amongst nature.

Would love to come back in the warmer months! Thanks again.

Tranquil setting

  • 4 of 5

We arrived with the house clean and tidy. Plenty of sunlight to enjoy inside through the beautiful 1960's steel framed windows! We'd happily stay here again because of its proximity to the peninsula and the east coast.

Unexpected oasis

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here before and after we walked the Three Capes Track. Perfect. Everything we needed on hand, even good coffee. Comfortable beds, charming house, games a-plenty. We arrived late and woke up to beautiful views. Great value!

Not what we expected

  • 1 of 5

Our family was disappointed with the accomodation we paid for. The kitchen lacked enough cutlery, the bbq ran out of gas, the mattresses were very uncomfortable, with flat pillows. Not to mention the 'drop dunny'! A little bit of money invested into the property could make a huge difference. We paid way too much for what we received. There wasn't beach access within walking distance. Not happy at all and wouldn't recommend, I could easily live in a tent, but when paying good money and not getting what you expect, that's not good business
