We stayed there with our two children for two nights and could have stayed longer. We went for a walk on the beach during low tide and our two year old daughter enjoyed running around the grass while we sat on the balcony. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed was comfortable, there was enough room for everyone and we...

Just back from a beautiful and relaxing break at Pelican Sands, Scamander. Can highly recommend this accomadation. We had a two bedroom unit and it was spacious and very well appointed. A fully equipped kitchen made life so much easier to look after ourselves. Beds very comfortable and was well supplied with extra blankets/pillows etc. Bathroom was excellent and towels...

Our room was fabulous. The back deck looks out over the water, It was so quiet and peaceful and lovely to just sit and look at the pelicans who were just bone lazy and didn't move for 12 hours or sit and read a book sipping on a wine or beer. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was lovely...

I stayed in the spa room it was beatifully presented. Plenty of towels and lovely crisp linen. VERY comfy bed and surprisingly quiet considering it is just off the road. Really lovely deck accessed through double doors with a view out to the beach. It would be a lovely spot to read and relax away the day. Kitchenette was clean...
