Bruny Vista Cabin provides self-contained cabin accommodation for up to two couples.  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, pademelons, possums and countless species of native birds.

Simply and tastefully furnished, the cabin has two bedrooms, an open plan kitchen dining and lounge room, a bathroom and  a separate laundry. It has a relaxed, warm and cosy atmosphere where you can watch the ever-changing horizon from sunrise to sunset, stargaze into the night, or stroll along zigzagging forest trails on the shoreline.

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. From the marina you can drive your car on the ferry, crossing the magnificent waters of 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."
