About Us

A little bit about your hosts - Rob & Kathryn Westland

Rob & Kathryn Westland have lived on the Tasman Peninsula for over 30 years, firstly building a home
in Kellevie and eventually moving to Pelican Place
in the 1990's.

Rob & Kathryn built their original home in Little Boomer Bay by buying an older home in Rose Bay and transporting it to it's present site at the top of Pelican Place.

Here is where they raised their four children amongst the natural bushland and stunning beaches.

Eventually Kathryn's mum came to live with them, this bought about the building of the beautiful and homely Beverley's house.

With so many building materials left over and Rob working on building sites, the idea of building another house evolved. Tree Top was originally built to provide a temporary home for any of their growing family. However, it was decided to also make Tree Top a holiday home for guests to enjoy.

Rob and Kathryn enjoy living on the beautiful Tasman Peninsula and love meeting the many people who come and stay at their two holiday accommodation homes.


Guest Book

Here's what some of our fabulous guests have said about their stay at Pelican's Rest Accommodation.


It was like pulling up to our own personal holiday home. Family friendly, modern and the deck overlooking the trees is wonderful - I dragged my deck chair from east to west as the day progressed.



Pelican's Rest is a great relaxing holiday home not far from everything.



Accommodation was fantastic, good value for money, totally quiet, very clean and tidy, hosts were very helpful, recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay while touring Tasmania, what a wonderful place.



Accommodation was clean, warm cosy, private and great value for money. Everything we were looking for. The fact that we were permitted to have our furry kids (the dogs) to stay with us was absolutely wonderful. Many many tanks.



Kath and Rob have done a good job making the place a home away from home. The cottage is very practically and prettily set up and everything that you need to feel at home is there. We appreciate the nature loo and the other touches that show they care for the environment.

Thanks Rob and Kath for letting my cat stay with me during my holiday in Tassie. The house is lovely, tidy and very clean and well-equipped. Feels like home away from home.Great to know such a true beauty in Tassie, must tell all my friends about this place and the friendly owners. Definitely will go back again.

Perfect spot, the house was just right for us. Good quality, well equipped. Friendly reception by the owners. Great value for money.



We had a lovely Christmas at Pelican's Rest. The house had everything we needed. It was great to take the dog along as part of the family. Internet communication with the owner was excellent.



Accommodation was beautiful and in lovely surroundings.



Mum and I loved it! Everything that we needed to get away for a weekend - without having to travel too far with the dogs. The property is ideal for dog owners. All four of us enjoyed the trip.
