Sunrise at Penguin - beach retreat

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Sunrise at Penguin is aptly named as it witnesses the morning splendour directly opposite the beach - situated 200 metres from the town centre and 30 metres from the beach.

This 3 bedroom house ( 2 Queen beds & 2 Single beds ) is fully self contained and short and long stays are encouraged.

Coffee shops and eateries are close by as well as bottleshop requirements.

There are many walking tracks around town and several beaches - 1 hour from Cradle Mountain and geographically central on the NW Coast of Tasmania between Burnie and Devonport airports (30mins) - 25 minutes from Spirit of Tasmania terminal.

Mountain bike tracks in the nearby Dial Range extend for 70 kms with magnificent views from Mt Montgomery ( a 40 min hike). Hinterland attractions are the caves at Gunns Plains, the Leven Canyon, wineries, rural farm land, Cradle Mountain and specialty organic farms such as Mt Gnoman Pig Farm.

Beaches are patrolled by life savers during summer and many sporting activities occur all year round due to Penguin's central location.

Our standard rate is $140 per night for the first two people and $30 for extra people per night. ($20 if on weekly rate)

Children less than 6 are free.

Weekly rate is $140 x 7 less 15% = $833.

Monthly rate is $140 x 30 less 30% = $2,940

Gorgeous holiday home with a view to match!

  • 5 of 5

We left Terry's beautiful home yesterday morning. I could not fault it - he has thought of everything. The clothes airer in particular was most welcome! The kitchen was well set up, including complimentary pantry items. The location is perfect for exploring the North West. As it was the low season, we did not expect to see any penguins so we were pleasantly surprised to see a few adult penguins scurrying up the beach directly opposite the house. We all enjoyed watching the sun rise and set each day - the table and chairs out the front of the property are well positioned to do just that. Hopefully we will be able to return on our next visit to Tasmania.

Owner's Response: How wonderful it was to host a Queensland couple at this time of the year who wanted to experience Tasmania at its coldest while exploring our world famous coastal features and hinterland. Kaylene and her husband brought their 4 year old child with them who had a full queen size bed to herself - to her great delight. This very friendly family left the house in the very tidy state they found it and are most welcome whenever back in Tasmania.

House was very well appointed and clean. Location was stunning for the views but a bit of a problem being so close to main road and freight rail line. Beds were very firm so not good for a bad back.

Owner's Response: So pleased that you Judy and Colin enjoyed your stay at Sunrise. It was great to meet your two jovial friends Garry & Jane for your 3 night stay. Also great that you were able to see Stanley and Cradle Mountain while here and relax in our seaside location. Melbourne is only a short hop from Tassie so perhaps we may see you again - all the best.

Completely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sunrise at Penguin could not have been lovelier. The house was spotlessly clean, elegantly furnished, and better equipped than any of the dozens of holiday houses we've rented in the past. We are enthusiastic cooks, even on holidays, and we found this kitchen to have everything we could hope for. The house was spacious, but cosy and the view was sensational. There was abundant hot water and the deep bath was a delight. The bed was luxurious and came, as the name implies, with a wonderful view of the sun rising over the sea. We'll be back, for a week next time!
