About this Holiday House

Great family bach with sea views, set in the heart of Penzance village, Tennyson Inlet. All day sun and just a hop, skip and a jump to the beach, wharf, boat ramp, reserve and local walking tracks. Fabulous bird life, a barbeque and lots of sunny (and shady) spots on the deck make this a fabulous place to chill out and relax. The king size bedroom, bathroom, laundry and all living areas are located at the entry level to the house while upstairs there are two very comfy bedrooms - a queen bed in one with fabulous views out to sea and a spacious open plan mezzanine room with a double bed. The kitchen, dining, lounge and sun room are open plan with lovely sea and garden views. The kitchen offers a fridge freezer, microwave, two element cooktop, oven and electric frypan. Please note the cottage has steep steps to the upstairs level and is therefore not suitable for children under 10 years of age. For boaties, Penzance boat ramp is the perfect spot to launch your boat and enjoy access to the outer Sounds. It's a two minute drive from the cottage to the boat ramp and we have an outdoor sink bench for cleaning your day's catch. Our section is super secure with high fencing all the way round. Off street parking in our driveway for a small to medium boat and there is additional boat parking near the Penzance wharf. Penzance is an hour and a half drive from both Nelson and Blenheim. Please contact us for further information.

Rebecca Moss
Birdsong Cottage is a wonderful cottage with everything you need and Rose and Phil are the perfect hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The cottage is clean, tidy, sunny and comfortable with a fabulous, sunny deck just made for relaxing on. Close to the jetty with wonderful views to the water. The birdlife was a joy to watch and listen to. Thank you Rose and Phil for a Christmas holiday we will never forget. We will be back.
Response from Owner
Thank you so much Rebecca for your kind words. It was absolutely our pleasure having you stay at our cottage for Christmas and we cannot thank you enough for being such respectful guests...and for doing all the laundry and making up the beds before you left. We look forward to having you and the dogs stay again in future. Kindest regards and happy fishing! Rose and Phil

Hi we loved our stay and really appreciated the gift of chocolates and wine to celebrate my Dad's 80th and the ability to check in and out when it suited.. It was a real pleasure staying at Birdsong. It was warm clean and had everything we needed. For us the nightly rate was expensive and more than we would normally pay. For this reason only we would be looking to stay somewhere cheaper next time. With thanks LJ
