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.

Firstly the accommodation itself is spotless and looked brand new even though it has been operating... More

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

The location was fantastic (a short walk to the beach and main street), the unit was comfortable, nicely furnished and well equipped. Barbara phoned while we were on-route to ensure she was there to meet and greet us. Parking was no problem and as it was a ground floor unit, carrying bags in did not pose a issue. Overall, a...

A beautiful, well appointed and clean room, ruined by an extremely rude owner. Sadly he does not know how to engage with guests. We were offended because we were treated as if we were not welcome, and yet we were paying guests.

We stayed at Pelicans Rest for one night before flying out of Sydney back to Canada. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It included a small efficiency kitchen but we opted to walk a short walk into town for our meals. We would recommend this accommodation very highly.

I stayed here with my partner for a weekend getaway. We had a fantastic experience. When we pulled up in front of this little gem we were amazed at how close we were to the beach, restaurants, pub and shops. We were greeted by the lovely Barb. She was very friendly and welcoming. Our rooms were very clean, opened spaced... More

just by chance i was filcking through google and found this perfect gem. A beautiful location, 5 mins walk to the center of town via the beach with a Teppenyarki restaurant worth paying for. Accommadation was Tranquil, lovely setting, very comfortable sleep and the owners were so hospitable. Will be there in the future for sure.
