Penguin House is a beautifully restored 1872 seaside cottage. It is a comfortable five-minute walk to Warrnambool’s main swimming beach, stunning Sting Ray Bay and the breathtaking views of the Penguin Island coastal walk. The centre of Warrnambool is a few minutes by car, or a 20 minute-walk through the Lake Pertobe wetlands.

The tastefully furnished two-bedroom home has an open fire, perfect for winter evenings, outdoor dining in a beautiful native garden.

Our family of four loved this home. We enjoyed the fireplace and spacious shower and tub. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking any meal. It was an easy walk to several playgrounds and the beach. James was a great host and very easy to work with throughout our stay.
