Bruny Vista Accommodation
Waterfront accommodation with spectacular views across Bruny Island, Tasmania
Bruny Vista provides self-contained accommodation with expansive views across the sea, island, forest, mountains and sky; it takes full advantage of the property's magnificent waterfront location. Situated on five acres of pasture and forest, Bruny Vista is the perfect vantage point to watch the sailboats float past, the wildlife graze on pasture and the birds fly overhead.
Snuggled into the hillside with magnificent stone landscaping, you can stroll past the garden beds and fruit trees on your walk to the waterfront. Bruny Vista is home to remnant sclerophyll forest where echidnas, pademelons, wallabies, possums and quolls are to be found, as well as a wide variety of birds. An excellent walking track runs alongside the property boundary which takes you all the way along the Manuka foreshore to Oyster Cove.
Overlooking the village of Kettering, Bruny Vista is a 30 minute scenic drive from Hobart and a two minute drive to Kettering's marina. From there you can drive your car onto the ferry to cross the D'entrecasteaux 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." - Keith
