We stayed in the Penguin Nook and found it very private and charming.
It is out of the main township and off the main road but worth it for the privacy.
There is a two story cottage next door but it is separated by a fence and garden.
It is nicely decorated and spotlessly clean with all facilities.
We had a very pleasant 7 days and could not have asked for anything better.
I have been told this property is for sale so hope the new owners will keep it as good as the current ownwers.

Unique Qualities: The cottage is really a delightful place to stay for awhile.
Having the wide windows letting in the light while we ate our breakfast watching and listening to the birds among the native trees in the garden was a treat.
The bed was very comfortable and the views to Waub's bay delightful.
You can hear the little penguins in the garden after nightfall and just a short stroll down to the rocks to see them come out of the water onto the beach and up to the rookeries at the last light of the day.
We could not have been more pleased with the facilities,even torches and umbrellas were provided for.
I would recommend this for anyone who wants privacy.
