An excellent property, clean with good space. On beach with good walks and swimming area. Walk to hotel for meals.Remote check in and out was the only negative.

A clean and neat room, well provided with the usual amenities. Very close to the beach, and in general to all things along the East Coast. My sole problem was that wi-fi reception was really poor, and kept dropping out. Normally I'd probably be happy to ignore the outside world for a while, but on this occasion I needed the wi-fi and rarely got it.

Property was very close to the beach. That is a positive thing about this property. The only thing that we did not like is spa bath was not in the bathroom.

Didn't like the door lock, wouldnt open properly, was worried about leaving the property as we werent sure if we could get back into the room. Only contact we had with the owners was via sms and telephone, didn't see anyone. Thought the room was over priced for what you get. Heating was two portable heaters and a fixed very small bar heater that was old 30 years ago, the fridge was old and rusty too. The view from the room was excellent though, almost made the visit worth while. Never been asked to make sure I wash up my cups and crockery before leaving either, given the cost of the room thats the least they could do. Bathroom also smelt of urine when the window was closed. Considering they have self rated at 4 star/dots whatever they call it, its all a bit rich.

Recently we drove from Hobart to Launceston along the East Coast of Tasmania - this is quite a short drive but there is a lot to see so we decided to book two nights accommodation along the way and have the opportunity of exploring the area in more detail. We had a wonderful trip and there is a lot to see. The Pelican Sands in Scamander is an excellent place to stop - the units are right on the water where the river and the ocean meets. The unit looked to be recently refurbished and the room was set up like a bedsitter with an ensuite bathroom, small kitchen facilities, dining table, couch and TV mounted on the wall. There was a spa bath in the main living area which didn't appeal to us - you can imagine someone having a bath a trying to enjoy the view of the water but this is not a private area and people walk along in front of the large window. Everything you need for a short stay was available - we receive a text with instructions on how to enter the property and we never saw the hosts - this didn't worry us but it may concern people who like to get local recommendations etc. The unit had a tiles floor which was pretty cold at night and a large rug would help however owners may be concerned about spills from the bath. There was an BBQ available and we used that - thank you. We enjoyed our stay but the price at $160 per night seemed a bit expensive and perhaps is a reflection of the lack of holiday accommodation in the area. The room was clean and bed very comfy.

Property was well presented, close to beach and walks. A little remote with general store, hotel and coffee shop close. Did not see the owners nor did they provide a booklet regarding the points of interest or emergency contact points, ie police, ambulance etc.
