    Penguin Cottage easily accommodated our family group and was a cosy place to stay for our mid winter excursion to the Kapiti Coast. The cottage was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The owner was friendly and helpful. A visit to the local Old Beach Bakery is a must!

    Our family of 4 had a lovely QB weekend at cosy Penguin Cottage. Very cute and dinky old school bach set in private garden where we enjoyed a wine on outdoor furnniture. Plenty of heaters available which kept the place toasty. Well equipped and great being so close to the beach. Many thanks for having us.

    Penguin Cottage was a delightful place to base ourselves for a few days. It was warm and well equipped. It was in a very quiet location and we enjoyed its close proximity to the beach and the nature reserve.
