This was the perfect place for us to have a relaxing babymoon. Even though it was very windy and a little rainy, it was the perfect place to curl up and read a book. The large windows made for wonderful views of the beach and abundance of wildlife. Our second night there the wind died down and we were able to stroll the beach, which felt like it belonged to us, not another person in sight. Beautiful clear water and my husband was able to find an oyster to eat straight off the rocks.
Overall a very comfortable and relaxing holiday. I am sure we will be back again, I am dying to get in that crystal clear beach water!

We really enjoyed our time at these eco-cabins. The view was exhilarating. Walking the deserted (early spring) beach was delightful. We found Stanley to be a wonderful small town with enough places to eat and shop for a few days. Had a wild climb up 'the nut', the hill that is the backside of Stanley. Chris and Janette, our hosts, were very helpful and one day Chris generously toured us around to some local sights and shops. We purchased a breakfast basket from them two days and ended up with more than enough food for some extra snacks and a third breakfast. We would heartily recommend this experience.

Beachside Retreat is just that - a collection of secluded eco-cabins designed for maximum privacy, overlooking a very beautiful beach. The interiors are aesthetically handcrafted from Tasmanian timbers which enhances the feeling of being in this enchanted isle. The Retreat is located on a stunning farm several kilometres from Stanley, a unique and unspoilt fishing village that retains a strong historical flavour without being touristy (but the coffee and food are excellent). As well as the wonderful beach, the farm has nature trails into the beachside forest. Every morning and evening we walked along the shore, often seeing sea eagles, and soaking up the ever-changing beauty of the water and sky. The sunsets on the beach are very special because of the gentle water of the inlet and the muted glow of the Tasmanian light. The accommodation is of the highest quality, and the hosts, Jeanette and Chris Bishop, are charming and most helpful. This is an experience not to be missed - you will assuredly want to come back!

This was one of the best places we have stayed at in Australia - we did have a great time and with friendly people we really can say - stay here without fear of finding a dud!

Absolutely marvelous. Stayed in the Pelican self contained and we were left alone for the whole weekend. Greeted by our host Chris and Janeete and a breakfast basket. Then into the land of luxury. Views over the water all day, a few steps from the beach and wildlife on the doorstep. Close to the township of Stanley but we spent most of our time in this most incredible getaway.

Will stive to get back with our young son and have already recommended this getaway to our family and friends.

Staying in Pelican was an unforgetable experience. It's quirky architecture was complimented by the beautifully appointed interior and the fantastic views in such a peaceful location.
The supply of home made bread and preserves gave a nice homely touch.
Thank you Janette and Chris.

A great escape! Peaceful and private! Amazing location! Our cabin was a comfy and a simply fab little piece of architecture. Definitely recommended. The only thing wrong with our stay was that it was too short. We'll be back... sometime!
