Very Friendly Greeting by the Lady at the reception desk. The room was very clean and cool. The parking was very close to all rooms. It was so easy to book in and then book book out. All appliances and Tv worked well

We have 4 children and really loved the location and family feel at Pelican Cove. Our boys loved using the swimming pool, spa and hiring the tennis raquets ($5 an hour... very reasonable). Location was good for going sight-seeing. We even drove down to Byron Bay one day and would really recommend that! Secure parking was a bit tight for our Kia Grand Carnival... low clearance would not allow a large 4x4 type vehicle. We stayed for 5 nights. You have to take your own rubbish out to the carpark but towels are provided. We found the washing machine and dishwasher lovely additions: they were clean and a pleasure to use. We also BBQ'd our dinner near the pool one evening... also lovely and clean. The only downside for us was that it was hot, being December and the only air-conditioner was in the lounge so all 3 bedrooms were rather warm. One had a ceiling fan and the others had pedestal fans, though so we all slept well with no noise issues at all. One bedroom had views over the river/canal and gorgeous views of sunsets, etc.

We recently returned to NZ form a 10 day stay at the Pelican Cove Apartments. I just wanted to say that our stay there was fantastic. We loved the facilities and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool is awesome and so is the half size tennis court! We found the location very handy to all the theme parks and GC attractions, whilst tucked away and quiet too :) We are already planning to come back next year and enjoy a GC winter break - I highly recommend this place to anyone (especially with young families)

Room Tip: We had a central room and found we benefited from the prevailing direction of the evening breeze!

I first stayed here with my mum 15+ years ago and loved it. Now im a mother of four, I booked a 11 day stay here and I still love it. The mangers are wonderful and the apartments are perfect with a great atmosphere. 15 minutes away from the top theme parks and surfers paradise, so what more can you ask for? A short distance from the beach makes it that much more perfect. Will definitely stay again.

We, a family of 3, stayed at Pelican Apartments from 26 Dec. to 31 Dec. 2013, Xmas season. We really appreciate our stay.
1. the apartment rooms are very clean and well maintained;
2. the apartment is built in a semi circle open to a lake, the swimming pool, spa pool, bbq and tropical style garden in the middle and well maintained. it is really a resort style;
3. the apartments are quiet day and night thanks to the management;
4. The Pelican Apartments is geographically located in the middle between Surfers and Theme Parks. If you use public transport, the bus is just in the front of apartment entrance, the bus 706 will take straight to Surfers or Jupiters Casino for seafood buffet. I recommend to use www.translink.com.au mobile app to plan your trip for elsewhere.
5. Pelican Cove Appartments offers a great value for excellency. I can say it is a 5 star management.

We really enjoyed our stay and thanks Jenny and your team for managing so well.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights at Pelican Cove Apartments. Apartment # 15 that we stayed in was very clean and well maintained. This unit is at ground floor as there is no lift servicing in Pelican Cove Apartments and we really appreciate it very much to be given this unit.
Thank you Jenny and Sally for your thoughtfulness in letting us have this unit.

There is a bus stop across the road and 20m going the opposite direction along Burrows Street.
There is only 1 translink bus # 706 that goes to Biggera Waters that passes through Burrows Street. However, not to worry as bus 706 route will take you to Southport, Burleighs Head, Pacific Fair, Surfers Paradise and many more.

There is also a nice seaside about 50m or so across the road where we went for morning walk. We even walk to Habour town which takes us about 20 mins or so.

Room Tip: Unit # 15 is located at ground level. There is no lift servicing Pelican Cove Apartments. This unit...

We stayed four nights at Pelican Cove after reading reviews on trip advisor. Location was perfect for all theme parks and walking distance to beach and parks. The apartment was very clean and well maintained as was the whole complex. Really enjoyed our stay and will gladly recommend to family and friends and we will be visiting again!
