The space
Madsen Retreat is a large Mediterranean style home converted into a 4-star guest house. It is in a quiet street just a 5 minute walk from Penguin Beach and shops. It sits on a large 950 square metre block of land on a hill that provides views of the ocean. You can relax in your room, upstairs common area with sea views, in the downstairs dining room, sunroom or outside on rear deck and the lawns. Any use of the kitchen, bbq and laundry is by arrangement only with the owners.

Guest access
You can have access to the whole guest house and grounds other than other bedrooms in the house and any room marked "Office" or "Private" on the doors. If you need access to computer, printer or scanner in the office, this can be done by arrangement with your hosts.

Other things to note
The Penthouse Suite is about 28 sq. m. and is our largest room and has a direct window view of the Bass Strait. The Suite has a large ensuite bathroom with a large shower with raindrop shower head with great water pressure. It doesn’t offer a spa bath when booked on its own. To have access to the spa bathroom you would need to book the deluxe family suite or the whole floor suite. The decor is AAA accredited 4 star quality . The suite can be configured either as King bed plus sofa, 2 single beds plus sofa or 3 single beds if you use sofa bed. You need to tell us at time of booking what configuration you want. Maximum occupancy is 3 people and we charge extra $25 for the third person. The weather in this area of Tasmania is variable, so you may need to bring a change of clothing to suit these weather changes. The average daily temperate ranges between 10-20 C. Penguin has a Commonwealth Bank branch and ATM. You can also get cash out at the newsagent and at the two IGA stores.

I am a lawyer and businessman and I move back and forth between Sydney and Penguin. We set up Madsen Retreat in January 2017 as part of the Madsen Group. The Madsen offers 4 star accommodation. Soon it will release a new suite at 4.5 star quality. Right now I have private living quarters and an office in the Madsen Retreat but in due course will purchase a home in Penguin for myself and my life partner. My room will then be converted into a luxury guest lounge and meeting space. I have two teenage daughters who mainly live in Sydney with their mother. Most my personal travels have been to USA, UK, Europe and Japan.
