“Wonderful home away from home!”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Sunrise at Penguin was perfectly located when we took my elderly mum for an overnight stay. The photos don't lie - you can sit back in the lounge room and enjoy the beautiful ocean view. So close to the town of Penguin, mum easily managed the walk with her wheelie and we all enjoyed eating dinner on the deck, watching the world go by.
Hi spec finish and modern, light, breezy décor - a treat for all at a very affordable price.
Looking forward to a return visit with more family in July. I'm sure our son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren will enjoy staying at Sunrise at Penguin just as much as we did!

Thank you Sue for your kind words and it was lovely to meet you and your mother for the first time. Am pleased you enjoyed the ocean views from the front deck plus was able to easily walk to town with your mum. You certainly left the house in a very tidy state and I look forward to seeing you again in July.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Absolutely wonderful place to stay. Directly across the road from the beach. Stunning views from loungeroom and bedroom. Every possible need is catered for. The small personal touches were appreciated. Out of all the places we stayed on our trip around Tasmania, this was definitely the best. Terry is a great host. Penguin is central to many close destinations and we definitely look forward to returning.

Thank you Carol for your kind words in the guestbook and leaving the house so clean - it was lovely seeing you relax for your two days after the hustle and bustle of Sydney life. Would be great to catch up with you again one day.

“home from home”
Reviewed 2 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Amazing house in a beautiful town. Sunrise at Penguin feels like home, unlike most holiday rentals. Everything you need is provided and Terry is a friendly and most thoughtful host. Penguin is a beautiful little town and our favourite place in Tasmania. The town has everything you need and the surrounding countryside and coast is stunning.

“Beachfront location”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Very nice house on the beachfront. Very well presented with everything you could need for your stay. Comfortable beds and plenty of space to spread out. Small enclosed rear garden and nice little patio out the front for coffee or breakfast.

Friendly owner who popped by regularly. Great location with supermarkets, restaurants and bars within walking distance.

Thank you Carey and Nigel for your kind words - it was a pleasure meeting both of you and trust you keep enjoying the rest of your time in Hobart and Adelaide while out from London. Leaving our house in such a tidy and clean manner was greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again if you return to Australia.

“Extra special property in quaint charming ocean town...”
Reviewed 21 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Not only did the owner go overboard to make the stay in the ideal vacation home exceptional and interesting, the property was literally perfect. With great Wi-Fi, ocean views, comfortable furnishings and bedding, fully equipped kitchen and laundry, we couldn't have been happier in Sunrise at Penguin. The little town and countryside is breathtaking with plenty to do for those seeking lots of activity and for the less active, gentle walks along the beach were enriching and interesting. The center of town was picturesque with a plethora of shops and the most friendly people on the planet. Our only regret? That we could have stayed longer than the six weeks. Terry, you added so much to our experience by all your attention to detail, your warmth and friendliness and your ability to steer us in a direction appealing to our tastes. As world travelers for over four years, with lots of vacation/holiday home experience, we couldn't have been happier. Thank you for everything!

Tom and Jessica you were both a fresh breath of air and charming people to have met. You were always warm, charming and so friendly that many in town still ask about you and will follow you in future on your world travels. We wish you well in your incredible venture of the world and trust your health enables you both to continue for years to come.
