Pelican Cottage isn’t just accommodation, it’s a destination! The cottage was comfortable, clean, well equipped and provided everything we needed for our stay on Kangaroo Island. The location was quiet and relaxing, with fabulous views of Pelican Lagoon. If you enjoy birdwatching Pelican Cottage is an excellent place to stay. The lovely native garden provides a wonderful habitat for the island’s tiny birds, there are waterbirds on the lagoon and eagles soaring overhead. I felt rejuvenated after my stay and plan to come back again. I feel lucky to have found Mary-Alice’s Pelican Cottage.

Beautiful cottage overlooking the water. We loved having our morning coffee on the front porch watching the birds in the beautiful garden. Clean home with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Pelican Cottage is a lovely, rustic cottage located directly on Pelican Lagoon, with beautiful views of the lagoon from the living space and the verandah - beautiful place to have breakfast or a cuppa, or just sit and watch the lovely birds in the shrubs or on the lagoon. It was located ideally for our various trips onto the Dudley Peninsula, including wineries and Antechamber Bay/Chapman River, to Kingscote, d'Estrees Bay, Red Banks cliffs, beaches at Pennington Bay, Emy Bay, Brown Beach, Baudin, Island, Nepean Bay etc. The cottage is well equipped to do your own cooking, although this time we mainly ate out to support the many wonderful local businesses. Mary-Alice is a great host, and she responded very quickly to our queries. Given the circumstances of the horrific fires on the Western side of KI, it is important to point out that Pelican Cottage and the Eastern parts of the island are totally unaffected and completely safe. There are so many things to do. We were over for one week and could have easily spent another week (or month!) there. Can't wait to be back - thank you, Mary-Alice!
