Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent about 10 days here over the school holidays, in one of the two-bedroom apartments, and had a fantastic time. Craig and Michelle are both dedicated to making sure everything is in order for their visitors, and are hard working and eager to please, going above and beyond in their thoughtfulness and their efforts to make sure we were well looked after. I gather that they took over Pelican's Nest a bit over half a year ago, and it's obvious that they are working hard to do an excellent job all round. The accommodation was neat and clean, and several special needs we'd asked about (e.g. DVD player) were attended to as well. We were staying with an elderly parent who needed wheelchair/walker access, and the place we'd been allocated was perfect for that, including adjacent parking (even traffic cones to "protect" our parking spot when we went out touring). Everything we needed was provided, including a linen change half-way our stay, and replacement towels every few days. The location is terrific, just a few minutes walk from the river. All in all, fantastic place to stay, highly recommend.

ccomodation was good. The room was spacious but the kitchen facilities really minor. There was no place to store anything. Same for the bathroom, this is spacious but again nowhere to put down some stuff. We had a small outside area. But it was not nice to sit there as there are cars parked right in front. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Location, one street behind the waterfront. I would stay here again, but I would ask for an upstairs room.

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review it is great to get feed back on ways to Improve Pelicans Nest. We are in the process of renovations and will definitely look at more storage space. The Outside areas are being worked on now with a nice Outdoor privacy screen being put up out the front, giving you a more Relaxed Private Area to enjoy. Cheers Michelle.

After a bit trip from Perth to Exmouth and back in a hire car, of all the accomodation we stayed in, this place really felt like home! We had a family 2 bedroom fully self contained apartment and we had so much room for a family of four to stretch out and relax! We had a washing machine and full kitchen to wash and cook. Michelle and Craig have really thought of everything in the rooms and as far as facilities, everything is just so CLEAN and tidy!!! You can see they are flat out doing the place up and I can’t wait to make this a place to visit on our next trip to WA to see how it’s all looking! Michelle and Craig could not have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble! 10/10 would recommend and will be back 😍

Stayed two nights here. Loved Kalbarri and loved the Pelican’s Nest. Craig was really helpful and the room was big, super clean and well appointed. The places has a relaxed and friendly feel and we would throughly recommend it. Comfy bed and pillow. Small kitchenette and somewhere to eat inside and out. Perfect!

We stayed in a couple of different rooms (a 2 bed apartment, double and family room) during our stay at Pelican’s Nest, and it was great. Michelle and Craig are so friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much of an ask when trying to accomodate us. The location of the complex is fantastic. It is walking distance to everything you need - coffee and the beach 300 metres away - what more could you want! The rooms/apartments are super clean and have everything you need for your stay. The beds are really comfortable too!

Don’t be put off by it’s rather modest appearance. New and friendly owners took over late 2022 and have spruced it up nicely inside. We stayed in a ground floor self contained 2 bedroom unit. Everything was crisp and extremely clean and had a gorgeous emu theme filled with quirky Wendy Winks artwork. Blokes - the TV was huge. Full kitchen with plenty of utensils and bowls etc. Shared BBQ facilities were clean and they’d provided oil, paper towels and all required BBQ accessories. Lots of nice plants also make it pleasant to sit outside. It’s just one block back from the beachfront (30 secs) and close to the marine facility for cruises and the IGA. Highly recommend!

This was a real gem. From the wonderful check-in experience to the rooms to themselves to everyone you bumped into around the place it was so friendly. The rooms are compact and well appointed but primarily just spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable with wonderful crisp cotton sheets. I don’t think I’ve ever come across such a quiet air conditioner either! The outside balcony area (we had a room upstairs) was just wonderful. Easy walking distance to the foreshore, the Pelican feeding experience and the lovely Pelican Cafe. Would highly recommend

Excellent stay! Lovely new owners, so friendly and welcoming. We booked a double room but had an extra person staying with us for the night so they put in an extra bed for us with no hassle at all. The rooms were super spacious and clean. AC was great and a lovely big balcony. Lots of free parking too and only a few.minutes walk from the beach and restaurants nearby also. Will definitely be back!
