We stayed in the spa room for the long weekend and had a great stay. This self-contained room was neat, clean and modern and, once we had the heaters running for a bit, nice and warm. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was excellent. There was tea, coffee and milk for us when we arrived and the water... More

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment in February 2014 with our son. The apartment was beautifully presented, spotless with lovely accessories and furnishings. They supplied a cot and all linen at no extra charge and were the most wonderful hosts for my husbands birthday. Amazing view lying in bed viewing the beach across the river. Thank you :)

We stayed here in a 2 bed apartment on our trip between Coles Bay and the Bay of Fires. The owners are lovely people, who obviously take pride in their motel. The 'apartment' was an excellent set up. 2 bedrooms; kitchen and a decent size bathroom. Parking was adjacent. Views of the water were from the kitchen and the main... More

We were very pleasantly surprised with this little gem while travelling up the East Coast of Tasmania. Arrived unannounced and no booking to be greeted by the genial owner who proudly showed us one of her rooms with views to the mouth if the river at a very affordable price. Rooms were beautifully appointed we were more than impressed ,... More

Always ready to welcome a weary traveller! Thank you so much for your kind words. At the risk of being repetitive, we try to provide what we would like to find ourselves when travelling.

Just the most wonderful place to stay and venture out from to see other attractions on the east coast of Tassie. Fabulous view of the lagoon and beach from our room. We had the 'spa room' which was great-totally functional although compact. Maureen and Graham are most likeable and friendly owners of Pelican Sands. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day stay. Highly...

Thank you soo much! I remember the lovely chat we had and discovered that our husbands where born on the same day, the same year and were about to both celebrate their birthdays.

Perfect is a high score, but for the value for money - well...very comfy bed, hot shower, comfy lounge, roomy unit, very friendly hosts, fabulous location - right on the edge of the lagoon at Scamander...a sand bank away from the ocean and white sand beach. And friendly 3 legged cat that accompanied me on sunset and sunrise photo excursions.... More

Stayed in unit 2, sea views are awesome, it took me back to my childhood holidays at the beach, the crashing of the surf on the beach was so therapeutic, loved every minute we were there, which was two nights and we wished it was a week or two.

Wow, what a gem of a place this is! Loved our visit here. The unit was clean, spacious and the views are mesmerising, especially from the main bedroom. All mod cons are there, and the rooms have been renovated... you'll love the pressure in the shower. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool and rolling around on the spongy grass... More
