A relaxing stay in a spacious, clean but basic unit. Great views and very good for active teenagers due to large grass area outside the unit and easy access to the river for fishing. Would benefit from fly screens on the doors. The bistro is excellent. Walk to beach across the bridge though the waves were a bit rough. Head... More

Clean and great views. We stayed four nights, the beds were comfortable. The building itself is quite old (think 1970's) but has been renovated. The owners were lovely and helpful. There is a BBQ outside your room but no air conditioning but we keep the curtains closed and it wasn't too bad). The pool is small and dated - but... More

It was very hot when we arrived in Scamander, and this place does not have air conditioning which for most of the time is fine - but we were hot... with little airflow. Nicely maintained - clean, and reasonably quiet. Nice little place to visit. Gidget the 3 legged cat, chose to visit - so we could not leave the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pelican Sands. Very comfortable with superb views over the inlet. Very impressed with crisp white bed linen and well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Gidget the tripod welcoming cat won us over very quickly and added to the enjoyment of our peaceful stay. Owners were helpful and friendly.

Wow. I don't even know how to start this review! I've lived in Hobart most of my life and decided it was about time I drove up the East Coast. I knew I wanted to see Bay of Fires and Wineglass Bay so I decided that I needed to have a base between the two. I had obsessively researched online... More

My partner and I just stayed in room 6 and loved it. It was right on the beach, yes you have to walk to get there but when you have views that good, who cares. The unit was very well equipped with heaters through to sharp knives. The first night we walked up to the local IGA, about a 10... More

We thought we would head down to the east coast as there had been whale sightings, so rather than go to St Helens, decided to pick somewhere a bit quieter, so chose Scamander and luckily, chose Pelican Sands. It is in a great position overlooking the estuary with the pounding surf of the sea behind. The grounds are very well... More

Staff over the phone was very friendly and helpful when we were booking the room. The Spa Suite is large and comes with everything you'll need, cook top, microwave, kettles, sink etc. Shower has lots of pressure and is hot! This place will give you 4 large towels and 2 small towels over a 1 night stay and the staff... More
