Ideally located & just a 1 hour drive from Perth City.

The Penguin Shack is the perfect place to get away from the city without having to travel too far. It has loads of character, featuring high celings & polished floorboards throughout & has a lovely relaxed feel about it.

It's in a very convenient location too being one street back from the beach where there are free use public bbqs & a children's playground, it's a 10 min walk away to Mersey Point (where you catch the ferry to the beautiful Penguin Island) & directly across the road is a supermarket, bottleshop, post office, cafe, restaurants & a bus stop which takes you to the train station, which can then take you to either Perth City or to Mandurah.

The Penguin Shack is fully equipped with everything you need. Even the linen & towels are provided. There is also a porta cot & high chair available on request.

It has 2 bedrooms, the master room has a queen size bed & the guest room has a double bed. It's perfect for a couple & still very comfortable for up to 4 people.

The house features a living room with TV, DVD & many DVDs to choose from, stereo, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, bathroom with claw foot bath, seperate shower, sunroom & a fabulous decked outdoor entertaining area with tropical gardens, bbq, outdoor setting & a heated spa under a gazebo.

The Penguin Shack is ideal for a romantic getaway, small family or small group of friends. You can take in the fresh ocean air, take a stroll to the many beautiful local attractions, enjoy a hot spa, soak in the clawfoot bath by candlelight or just simply relax & enjoy!

There is an abundance of marine & wildlife just a short walk away including dolphins, sea lions, penguins, pelicans & all sorts of other marine & birdlife.

The surrounding area is also ideal for kite surfing, kyaking, fishing, boating & of course swimming.


Please see below for nightly / weekly rates, but please note there will be exceptions to the prices for public holidays & the Christmas & Easter periods.

A fully refundable bond of $100 - $300 (depending on length of stay) is also required for all stays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One street from the beach! From beginning to end this was a great experience. John was happy to answer my many emails as I had not booked a holiday house before and was quite cautious. He put to rest any concerns! The house is literally one street back from the beach and a leisurely walk to Penguin Island cafe and Ferry. The paths are great which we found good with having a pram (our 6month old was with my husband and I). Across the road is the bus stop if you need it (sometimes the noise from this was a little annoying but leaving a fan blowing away from us, worked a treat :-)) plus what a convenience! We had a car, so this was not needed. A proper butcher, IGA, cafe, liquor shop, newsagent, patisserie, and a few restaurants were footsteps away. Was so convenient! Onto the house, it is an old cottage renovated to a beautiful standard. The bed was comfortable and even had a full length mirror which was handy. Air-conditioning in the main area was enough to cool the cottage and I noticed a heater though we didn't have to use it. We found a bottle of wine on the table when we arrived, such a nice touch. And in the fridge, eggs, 2L of milk and loaf of bread too! Thanks John! Also, there was a coffee machine, jams, cereals , the handy things like glad wrap, alfoil, oil, stock, and herbs too. Was so handy! Kitchen was well equipped. Nice large lounge and while we didn't end up using the spa, it was a beautiful setting outside with established gardens that was like a rainforest! BBQ was out there and we used this when family came for the day. It was lovely to pop out and walk along the paths and see the beach. I can not recommend this place highly enough! Thank-you for a lovely stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot fault It is my pleasure to write this review of Penguin Shack. From the moment I opened the front door it felt warm and inviting. All our needs and more were met. I would recommend staying here for a few days (as we did) or a week if you are lucky enough to be able to. Ideal for families or couples. Lovely spot if you enjoy the beach or just need a bit of R & R. Perfect location, perfect all round.
