“Great value, new, very clean, excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

We stayed at Pelicans Rest and could not have been happier. We were greeted by the friendly host and taken to a very comfortable, studio room with a spa and a private outdoor BBQ area.
The location is great, only minutes walk to the beach, outdoor, salt water swimming pool and the town area with many pleasant bars, restaurants and cafes.
When down that way again, we will definitely stay at Pelicans Rest.

I was unsure about staying at Pelican's Rest as i had previously stayed at the Shellharbour Resort and very unhappy with it. I took a gamble and absolutely loved it. It was new, clean, tastefully furnished, private, safe and good price. Will definitely stay there again. The place was also close to the beacha nd walking distance to the village centre. Great find.

This modern self catering B&B is located about 100 metres from the waterfront and the ocean pool. It is about a 300m walk to the village centre where there are some very good restaurants. The accommodation is located separately on the ground floor of the family home. We had a studio apartment with a large bathroom with spa bath. There is a well equipped kitchenette with hot plates, microwave oven, toaster, full size fridge etc. There is a firm but comfortable queen size bed and a sitting room with couch, small dining table and chairs, a flat screen tv and small sound system. There is a very quiet split system air conditioner in the unit. A small timber deck with table chairs, umbrella and small electric bbq. is at the back of the unit. The unit is spotlessly clean. The only negative I could find with unit is: the shower is located over the spa bath, which could be a problem is you have bad knees or hips, although there is a hand rail on the wall to help you into the spa. It was certainly no problem for us. It was a short drive to Jamberoo and the National Park and we had a beaut walk to Minimurra Falls. We had a very pleasant 2 days at Shellharbour and would stay a Pelican's Rest again.
