Bruny Vista Cabin

Waterfront accommodation with spectacular views across Bruny Island, Tasmania


Bruny Vista Cabin provides self-contained cabin accommodation for up to one couple.  Expansive windows look out across the sea, island, forest, mountains and sky, taking full advantage of the property's magnificent views. Situated on five acres of pasture and forest, the cabin is the perfect vantage point to view the region's abundant wildlife: echidnas, wallabies, potoroos, possums and countless species of native birds.

Our cabin has a four-post queen bed, fully equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom and seating area opening onto a deck and barbecue area, providing a relaxed, warm and cosy atmosphere.  Watch the ever-changing horizon from the sunrise to sunset, stargaze into the night, and stroll along zigzagging forest trails below the cabin to the shoreline of the Dentrecasteaux Channel.

Snuggled into the hillside overlooking the village of Kettering, the cabin is a 30 minute scenic drive from Hobart and a two minute drive to Kettering's marina.  Join us for a sail or take a 15 minute ferry ride across the magnificent waters of the Dentrecasteaux Channel to Bruny Island.

"We were really delighted by the cottage! The view is wonderful, and wallabies popping their heads up out of the grass in the field below in the morning and late afternoon added another "aaaah" factor."
