Wonderful Perfect location, 1BR, self contained (no cooktop). Bright & spacious this “retro” apartment is the perfect place to stay when visiting Penguin. Located right across the road from the beach, you have views of the ocean from your living area. Tastefully decorated, this apartment brings a lot of smiles.

The accomodation is at it's best. Beach views with home like feeling place to unwind at the end of the day. Everything is at walking distance. Beautiful place and very comfortable accommodation. Highly recommend this place.

Fantastic accommodation and with stunning location. It is next to train line so occasional train noise at odd times. However, to be over looking Bass Strait is pretty hard to beat. Great place to stay and do day trips as really convenient. Bigger townships really close if you need big supermarket. Recommend coffee at Perpendicular and dinner at el Perro.

Thanks Frances for your thoughts . Our occasional train (2 a day ) adds a little to the overall experience. Sounds like you enjoyed Penguin and it's proximity to iconic destinations Cradle and Stanley etc. Terry

Absolutely beautiful place to stay. The gorgeous big balcony looking out to sea is the perfect place in the morning for breakfast and in the afternoon for wine and cheese! Big, light, airy rooms, with a good kitchen and 2 bathrooms, this is definitely the place to stay. We loved it hear and wish that we had booked for longer.

Beautiful and well maintained apartment in a very good location. Penguin was our first stop for our holiday in Tasmania. We enjoyed the surroundings but also the apartment. It is well equipped and comfy. Snugging beds and a lovely shower. The view from the balcony is magnificent. We had dinner the first night at the Spanish restaurant which was booked...

Rounded out two fantastic weeks holiday in Tasmania at the Penguin Waterfront. It is a fine way to complete our holiday. Beautiful views, lovely ensuite and very clean. All the things I could want in a place to stay-the only problem is if we had known how good it was going to be, and also Penguin as a town we...

We happened to park outside this property while checking the nearby hotel - thank you very much, Fate for leading us to this precious gem. To our regrettable loss, we stayed only one night.This place is beautiful, from the gorgeous wooden floors to the huge kitchen/living room with an imperial sea view, no expense has been spared. Simply put, you...
