Terry was a great host and met us when we reached the beach house. We even had a platter of fruits and port waiting for us! The accommodation was awesome as it’s just a stone’s throw away from the beach and walking distance to the supermarkets. It’s really like a home away from home. We requested for a change of towels in the middle of our 5 nights stay and Terry was so accommodating about it. There was no dryer after we machine washed our clothes in the laundry room but the drying rack that is enclosed at the back of the house did a wonderful job of drying our clothes naturally and efficiently. Cooking was a breeze as the rental home was fully equipped with cookware, utensils and all the cooking equipment necessary to whip up Chinese dishes. The only drawback was that the 6 of us had to share the bathroom so we had to set up a schedule for that. Lol. But the accommodation is a wonderful base to visit Latrobe, Burnie, Lillico, Don, Devonport and Cradle Mountain.
Tastefully renovated and appointed three bedroom accommodation situated directly opposite the beach.Terry and Fran were delightful hosts and their attention to detail was amazing providing a comfortable clean well furnished residence for our stay.
We stayed for Targa Tas - 6 blokes. The owner kindly set up extra single beds
Very well appointed an comfortable. Would suit a family or group to stay a few day and enjoy exploring the region eg day trips to Cradle Mt or Stanley.
Excellent accommodation in a stunning location. Situated literally across the road from a lovely beach this excellent accommodation and home from home has it all. The accommodation is very clean, homely and has everything you could need including those little extras that takes the hassle out of self catering. There's outdoor seating looking out across the sea and also a large garden with bbq & seating area at the rear with plenty of off street parking. It's a very short stroll from local shops and facilities and convenient for driving along the coastal road or hitting the highway for sightseeing attractions, towns/cities and airports.
From the moment we arrived it felt like home. Terry had suggested places for us to visit when we made our booking and checked up twice during our stay to see if there was anything that we needed. The view from the lounge is magic and was better than watching the TV! The kitchen and bathroom was the best stocked that we have ever encountered. The beds are very comfortable and everywhere is very clean.
Very clean, aesthetic decor and beach views. It was lovely to have a choice of quality teas and the complimentary port.
Unfortunately, we only had one night at Sunrise on our way back to Canberra. The house is beautifully appointed, plush, super clean and I wish we had a longer stay (2 weeks would be ideal)! Of our 3 week travels in Tassie, I rate Sunrise as the best place we stayed especially coming from a VERY expensive place at Cradle Mountain. The beds are so comfortable, the view is spectacular & the beach is 20 steps away. Terry & Fran, the owners, are so welcoming and generous with local information and supply a full book of places to visit, eat, relax and are always available if you need to contact them. We will be returning to stay and discover more of the North West coast of Tasmania. Sunrise at Penguin is a must!
