“Our Fourth Visit and we'll be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

The location is special as other reviewers have said. The apartments are not all the same so it is worth emailing or talking with the on site managers to choose the right one for your holiday. Restful, convenient and well equipped for a short or longer stay. The resident managers are on hand if needed.

I stayed overnight at Pelican H2O on a drive from Brisbane to Sydney.

Pelican H2O is beside the water in a truly lovely setting.

The building is an older development however the units are renovated to a high standard, very clean and beautifully presented. The staff were also helpful with our inconveniently late arrival.

Well worth a visit.

We stayed in a ground floor apartment overlooking the lake which was superbly fitted out to the highest standard. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. A great find.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment block is next to the waterway which has a beautiful outlook. We went to the local supermarket and cooked in our apartment which worked very well. The partment was very clean with good appliances etc.

In short - great apartment in a lovely location for a relaxing holiday.

In detail - we stayed at the Pelican apartments for 6 days in January 2011. Everything was great from start to finish. From the moment we walked in the front door until the day we left we had a great time.

There were 5 of us in an upstairs, 2 bedroom waterfront apartment that could sleep up to 6. The apartment was almost two apartments, as you could separate off the second bedroom, second lounge room and second kitchen by closing a door. There were also two separate air conditioning units for the different parts of the apartment.

Each of the bedrooms had a queen size bed and there was a fold out queen bed in the second lounge room. It folded down from the wall in one piece with a thick and comfortable inner spring mattress - not like some of the terrible hotel sofa beds.

Both kitchens were fully equipped, each with its own dishwasher. The larger kitchen also included a washing machine. We cooked several meals at the apartment and didn't find that we were missing any utensils.

Most nights we ate out on the deck at the front of the apartment, it wasn't too hot or too humid and we didn't find that we were bothered by mosquitoes. There are also two large built in barbecues close to the apartments so it was no chore to cook a barbecue meal.

There was ample undercover parking underneath the building so cars are kept out of the heat and the rain. There is also room to park boat trailers and a public boat ramp only 100 metres away.

There are also two private jetties at the apartments. I spent a lot of time fishing off them with my family. We caught a lot of small fish, which we released. It would be a lot of fun for inexperienced anglers or those with young children learning to fish. My kids certainly had a ball.

A couple of points to note:

The apartments are not in Port Macquarie. They are in North Haven which is 30km south. It is not a problem as all of the facilities you require are nearby. It is also quieter and has less traffic.

There is a fishing tackle store and also bottle shop about 5 minutes walk from the apartments.

There is a good restaurant called Relish about 10 minutes walk from the apartments.

A Coles supermarket is 3 minutes drive from the apartments.

If you like Oysters they are sold at Armstrong's about a 2 minute drive from the apartments.

There are many different beaches nearby. Some are better for surfing or fishing or swimming. Information in the apartment will tell you which beach is best for what activity.

Internet access is patchy at best. Wireless internet was advertised but we were unable to connect. There are internet cafes nearby.

If you don't like air conditioning both bedrooms also have overhead ceiling fans which help keep the rooms fresh.

If you like sleeping in make sure that you close the glass door in the master bedroom that leads out to the balcony. We forgot and were woken up by some very noisy kookaburras!

Highly recommended!

I called up this property and booked it on phone then when we checked out later i checked my credit card account and they had charged me extra dollars as credit card surcharge which was not mentioned anywhere when booking or even when we stayed there.
i think its unfair that they charged that amount without telling me and also i could have booked through other site and saved that money.. more than money i felt cheated...

Stayed over for one night. Very high class finish to decore. Clean, tidy and friendly managers.; Beds were comfortable and had a very modern feel to it. Will definitely stop over again on our next trip from Bisbane to Sydney. Highly recommended.
