A lovely little find. Perfectly positioned a few meters from the beachfront and sea pool (no views though). These little apartments are well equipped with a fully equipped kitchen, spa bath, private patio, wi fi and DVDs for the rainy weather. Situated a 5 minute stroll away from restaurants and shops this is almost everything you want for a weekend... More

Pelikans rest is a superbly equipped self catering room that is located a stones throw from Shellharbour village. We stayed over the airshow weekend. Laurie was a top host and we will be definitely looking to stay again.
