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.

We arrived late from Sydney airport on a Sunday night and thankfully we were able to settle thanks to the friendly and receptive manner we were welcomed by the owners. Its a great location so close to the ocean. Modern fittings and very well maintained room.

Located close to sea and shops, this immaculately clean unit was a perfect choice for our three day stay. The unit is well equipped with everything the traveller needs. There is plenty of space to rest and relax and the outdoor balcony is a bonus. We had a wonderful stay and will be sure to return to lovely Pelican's Rest.
