We stayed at Pelican House with our two young boys, along with another couple and their two children and were so happy with the set up, quality provisions, layout and location of this gorgeous place. A short walk to Long Beach and easy drive to the shops when we needed to. Returning again in 2016.

Driftwood House was perfect for our quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of Adelaide. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and found the home very comfortable and warm during the SA winter. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to relax and take some time out by the beautiful picturesque town of Robe.

We found dealing with Sonya extremely easy - she communicates quickly and well and everything is as it appears and is promised on their website. The decor suited us perfectly and the location near the trail to town and two beaches was great. We don't understand why people in Robe allow cars on their beach... but that is out of... More

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at "driftwood house" for a couple of nights. A stones throw from the beach and a lovely walk along the shore into town. The house was cozy, immaculately presented and we really liked the little touches which made it feel like home.
