My husband and myself enjoyed a 4 day stay. Unit was modern, quiet, clean ,and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet day and night which we liked because we were travelling around visiting family and this was a rest stop in the middle of a long journey. We liked the location as we didn't need to... More

We arrived late from Sydney airport on a Sunday night and thankfully we were able to settle thanks to the friendly and receptive manner we were welcomed by the owners. Its a great location so close to the ocean. Modern fittings and very well maintained room.

Located close to sea and shops, this immaculately clean unit was a perfect choice for our three day stay. The unit is well equipped with everything the traveller needs. There is plenty of space to rest and relax and the outdoor balcony is a bonus. We had a wonderful stay and will be sure to return to lovely Pelican's Rest.

Pelicans rest is exactly what you are promised, when I booked this trip away for me and my partner it sounded perfect and very affordable when we arrived it was exactly that, only a minute walk from the beach and a room that has everything you need, It made our valentines weekend an amazing trip to remember

2nd time here but won't be the last. We'll be back again in the future. Excellent location for a couple of "baby boomers". Nice and quiet. Courtesy bus to local clubs is a god-send. Off street parking and all the other things expected for this type of accommodation.

We were warmly welcomed by Laurie, who showed us through the property and even went to the trouble to deliver an extra pitcher of milk for my child's breakfast, unasked, so that I didn't have to walk to the local store to get some after our arrival on Friday night. The unit was immaculate, comfortable and beautifully finished, and the... More

Clean, quiet, spacious, well equipped and a fantastic location where you can walk to everything, what more could you ask for! Barb was a most welcoming host. We loved the apartment, the DVD library and the spa, which was big enough for two. If visiting Shellharbour, this is the place to stay.

Yes it was my fault about the location as we were arriving by train, thought this place was only a short walk from the train station do not know what planet I was on there but anyway made the most of my time here.

Yes, it seems our quiet location is a little further from the train station than you thought, but nice to hear you still enjoyed the area. The new Shellcove Railway Station will be a little closer when it opens next year. A car is a definite asset for exploring the area - unless you just want to relax and unwind... More
