[Nov-Dec Little Blue Penguins Breeding Under the House!]

A unique and rustic waterfront 1950s home. Originally the Officers Accommodation in the [now disused] Airforce Base, our family home is the only residence in the historic area. Only 8 min to the airport.

Own transport essential.

During penguin breeding season the price has been lowered, these cute little critters can sometimes be a bit rowdy during the night, and are nesting under the room! Can be spotted leaving the sea at dusk.

Caroline welcomed us, and explained the idiosyncracies of the sleeping room and the shared washroom facilities in the adjoining building. The property should best be described as rustic waterfront. It was an air force facility until ten years ago, and since that time, little ma…
