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.
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 plug in devices. 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.
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.
