Seaside cottage by the penguin-beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

This fairly new cottage is pleasantly situated between Penguin ( 2min) and Ulversone (5 min). The house excist of dining lounge and kitchen in one open area with electric cooking and fridge .There are 2 bedrooms downstairs ,both with queen size beds. The bathroom has a shower ,basin and toilet. Upstairs has a double bed.

The sheep make sure that the 7 acre property is always groomed. The local penguins can be vieuwed from the beach at the front of the house.There are appr.150 of them in the colony. The beach is a great spot to fossic for some rare gemstones. The seaside has a sand and a couple of gravel beaches.Fishing here is at its best with all the local species available, even abalone for the ones with a permit. Shopping can be done in Penguin or in Ulverstone (coles,woolworth,harris scarfe ).

Both Devonport and Bernie are only 10 minutes away.Restaurants are plentyfull within a 10 min drive.

Cradle Mountain is only a bit over an hour drive through some of tasmanias most spectacular landscapes .This would be a great place to start each day with a new adventure if it would be launceston, Tablecape,cradlemountain or even Straughn within reach for the day

For the kids we have plenty of space to kick a ball,swim or fish.

Kind regards Leo

The position of this house is fantastic. Great views and easily accessible.

However, as per the previous reviews, it is cold. There is one heater for the entire cottage and it intermittently turns itself off (it would appear to be a mystery as to when this happens as it is not associated with the heater actually heating the cottage). There is a warning sign not to touch the dials on the heater which silently mocks you.

There is a major leak in the shower and it pools under the carpet the bedroom which only became apparent when we stood in it the first time.

The fridge is a bar fridge - fortunately, inside is cool enough that this was not a problem as the wine would cool when the heater turned off.

There was no obvious external bin to put rubbish in. Our communications with the owners as to where to put rubbish remained unanswered during our stay.

Would definitely recommend for the actual penguins (who weren't there, and aren't for a large portion of the year) as our stay was wet and cold.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Spent 3 nights at this great little cottage. Everything was provided as advertised & it was very comfortable & a great base to relax & also explore the surrounding area.

In the promo photos there appears to be a full size fridge, however there was only a small one in the kitchen. Also, like the previous reviewer, we were cold. We wonder if the heater was big enough to cope with the space it needed to heat up.

Despite that I would recommend this cottage to anyone. Penguin Markets are great also.

Incredible view

We loved this house and location. Stunning. However. They need to do something about the heating. It was very cold.

Owner's Response: It is a shame to hear that. We have set it on 22 degrees . The cleaning lady noticed that someone did change the timer. It is possible that the heater was not on at these times.

Private cottage with a view

  • 4 of 5

Very nice sea view from living area & even trains by the road!.

Comfortable lounge & relaxing on front deck nice.

Central to Cradle Mountain through to Stanley in the west.

No laundry is biggest issue having to take washing to town was painful.

Amenities otherwise ok but getting a bit run down needs some TLC especially a very good spring clean. We experienced dirty mattress protectors, cushions, carpet & oven. No fresh washing up sponges or dish cloth & only one tea towel.

Fridge was adequate size for a couple of days but freezer not capable of making ice so had to buy ice.

Owner's Response: We needed a new cleaning lady and we got the best. Defrosted the freezer and a spring and summer clean

Bloody brilliant so beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was gorgeous and so relaxing my dream home. I loved the position of the house you are high up with bush view's behind you and in front of you is the beautiful ocean. Waking up to that and mini kangaroos and blue wrens is just the best. And all the people in Tassie are so sweet and helpful just like the early days. Thanks Tassie for making our stay well worth it. We will be back again the following year and every year after that.
