“Great place to stay and tour around the region”
Reviewed December 21, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

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.

Jacqueline and her family were a pleasure to host at our holiday house in Penguin. Her Singapore family enjoyed the central location to many tourist locations especially the penguin viewing area at Lillico's Beach between Ulverstone and Devonport. We thank them all for the tidy state they left the house in and would love to see them again sometime in the future.

Wonderful to have Barry and his son stay with us for the weekend who were over for a 40 year reunion in the town. Particularly clean and tidy, it would be great to meet them again and have them share our hospitality.

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.

Wonderful to have these Targa guys stay at our premises during a difficult period in their racing - was great to see their spirit to succeed after a disappointing break down of their car. They all enjoyed the early morning sunshine on the front deck to share a coffee and left the house particularly tidy - most welcome to stay again.

“Sunrise at Penguin has it all.”
Reviewed April 11, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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.

Alison, you and your family were a delight to meet, all the way from England for your son's wedding in Tasmania. Your 5 day stay enabled you to travel to the Stanley Nut and Cradle Mountain all a little over 60 minutes from Sunrise. You were wonderful bringing your elderly mother with you to experience life on the other side of the world and allowing her time to relax reading in the sunshine. Look forward to meeting you again one day.

“Perfect position & everything you could need”
Reviewed April 5, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

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.

Lovely to meet two South Australians touring our state - a very friendly mother and daughter who obviously enjoyed the views from the front lounge. So pleased your stay was to your liking and thank you for staying with us and keeping the house spotlessly tidy.

Elizabeth and her two sons were a delight to have as guests from a great area of NSW, Taree. The family loved the quiet location of Sunrise by the sea after visiting the rugged west of Tasmania at Arthur River. Always wonderful when guests leave the holiday home in the same neat condition as when they arrived - thank you for your kind words in the guestbook and hopefully see you again one day.

“What a Gem! One of the nicest places we stayed in our 3 week trip to Tassie.”
Reviewed March 17, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

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!

Wonderful to meet you Lisa and so happy you both enjoyed your over night stay with us at Penguin before departing Tasmania on the Spirit boat from Devonport. I trust you have pleasant memories of your time at various locations in Tassie and we appreciate your friend recommending us for accommodation - enjoy the winter months in the snow fields of Cooma.
