Sometimes, the simplest pleasures in life are the best. This sums up Cloudy Bay Cabin; an unpretentious and welcoming little timber cottage surrounded by South Bruny National Park and just metres from the shores of beautiful Cloudy Bay, Bruny Island.

Cloudy Bay Cabin Accommodation

No Pets

USB Power Only

It may be simple, but the cabin is very comfortable, with modern, quality furniture and luxurious linen. To maintain the unspoiled nature of the area, Cloudy Bay Cabin relies on solar power and bottled gas to provide the means for most modern conveniences (but not a washing machine).

The 12v power system means no power points are present at the cabin. A few USB points are available for charging phones. This is a great way to experience living off the grid.

The cabin has two bedrooms and sleeps six (master bedroom: king bed; second bedroom; two double bunks; fold-out couch: double bed) – with room for more to camp on the expansive grass recreation area outside.

The clean and practical kitchen has views out through the covered veranda to the beach beyond. A rustic eight-seater dining table provides the perfect spot for lunch, dinner or a family Scrabble challenge.

Floor Plan


Cloudy Bay Cabin is situated at the southern end of Bruny Island.

Located just 50 metres from the beach, Cloudy Bay Cabin is well located for families with young children keen to splash in the shallows – or teenagers prepared to walk to the nearby surf break.  Walkers will be delighted too, with kilometre after kilometre of beach to explore, as well as 350 acres of private bushland to share with no one but the local wildlife.

This unspoiled seclusion is located more than 30 minutes from the nearest store, so it is recommended visitors to the cabin bring their own provisions to make the most of the beautiful setting.

Address: South Bruny National Park, 970 Cloudy Bay Rd, South Bruny, Tasmania Australia 7150

Guest Reviews

Loved the seclusion and absolute beachfront location-idyllic. Appreciated the cosy old cabin with an eco touch and funky-eclectic furniture touches plus the comfy bed and quality linens. Loved the birds-Button quail, Oyster catchers, Sea Eagles, Robins etc. Saw dolphins our first morning, exciting! Love to return.

Thank you for letting us stay at this fantastic location. We loved this cabin. Thank you Ben for a really wonderful stay. We loved the swims, the walks, the peace and quiet and the views. The baby swallows learning to fly. The white wallaby we saw on the 2nd night was so special. The fishing, the friendly locals, the boards games and flying kites. The quieter life for a glorious week!

Great place! Great location! Awesome winter getaway.

This part of Bruny is very special, and it felt like we were on our own private beach. It was great to be "off the grid" and have a simpler existence for a few days. The cabin is well set up with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Highly recommended.

The cabin feels like the most isolated sanctuary on an island which is entirely a sanctuary. Our stay offered a time to experience the simple life, with enough creature comforts to feel cosy. The sunset views from the couch draw a close to perfect days of beach walking, bird watching and exploring coastal heathlands.

Bruny Island Cabin is a truly amazing! Not for everyone but if your one of those who likes to get away from it all, this is for you! Great views, lovely long walks along the beach. It may not be one of the flashiest along Cloudy Bay Beach but it has all you need & is very comfortable & it certainly has the easiest access to the beach. I would certainly return there when I am next on Bruny Island
