“Clean, comfortable cottage which was a great base for our exploring. Could walk into town & beaches.”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Western's view from 12-15 Feb and found it ideal for our stay. It was easy to find and beautifully situated quietly above Penneshaw beach at the end of the road. The information provided by the owners prior to our stay was excellent & the cottage was well appointed and stocked...we had everything we needed & more. We easily walked into town to go to dinner a couple of times finding the fish & chips, pizzeria & pub all providing good food. Also an easy walk to Christmas Cove for fishing off the jetty. Good value for money.

“Great Location and Price”
Reviewed 3 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

House is spacious, clean, very well-equipped, comfortable beds and very close to the beach and the ferry terminal. Well-priced. Nice quiet area. If it had wifi, it would be perfect. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your glowing review! We're very pleased you loved the location and views and that Western's View had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. We would love to have you stay at our home again, possibly for a longer duration. The island is very large and so guests need time to see the sights and also relax on the deck and enjoy the surrounds of Penneshaw.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Loved this house. Had everything we needed. Close to town and lovely and quiet. Loved the coonara heater. Second bedroom could probably use a woollen underlay as it can be chilly at night.

Liked best: Everything was great. A bath would be good but thats understandable as tank water is at a premium.
Liked least: I could have taken my dog as there is a boarding kennel on the island who will also take dogs for the day while u visit national parks. May be worthwhile owners of property to let holiday makers know this.

“Time Out”
Reviewed 14 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Penneshaw is small but accommodates all the simple and real needs; beautiful bay, close to some spectacularly placed wineries, natural attractions, friendly pub, great pizzeria, within casual strolling distance. The house was charming, clean and well serviced. And the owners are friendly, professional and prompt with any replies. KI has a certain undisturbed charm and the colours of the water and surroundings are richer than the mainland. Nice place to take some time out...one word of advice book the ferry early as it fills up and don't be too quick to line up for embarking--first on last off and vice versa.
