Perfect place to relax.

5 of 5
I was looking for a quiet place to relax for the weekend with our dog, but not too far from town. This was the perfect place, about 20 minutes drive to Hervey Bay, quiet when you got back. All amenities to cook and feel at home were provided. Our dog had full access to the outdoor area, and was free to explore the place. The owner Catherine and her family were mindful to give us our private space. Their dog Mitch was always ready to welcome us, and was a good companion for our dog Herbie. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a respite from a busy city lifestyle. Good value for money too.

Home away from home

5 of 5
Our family of five had a wonderful stay at Pelican House. The house was clean and tidy and had everything you could possibly need. Beds very comfortable. Thank you Judy for having those little extras around the house: tissues and hand soap at each tap. The pool is devine. Kitchen is great. Views very relaxing. Only a short drive to supermarket and Hervey Bay attractions. We will definitely return in the future.
