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

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.

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.

Guest Reviews

We’ve just returned from a wonderful week in Tasmania, three days of which were spent in a cabin on Cloudy Bay, at the bottom of Bruny Island. Apart from a stunning and serene location, our time here was just as special because of the local wildlife, including this pair of welcome swallows. What we initially mistook as interest in us, was instead interest in their young, nesting in the eaves above the front door. During each day here, we kept our time on the porch to a minimum, allowing the parents to fly out in search of food, then return every few minutes with eagerly awaited mouthfuls. Typically, as is the case in this image, one would remain nearby while the other scouted and collected, then they would swap roles. However by each evening, when the entire family was snuggled quietly overhead, we’d sneak out with a blanket and a glass of wine, and watch the day fade across the bay, and behind the distant mountains of mainland Tasmania. If it were possible, we’d be back there tomorrow.

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.

Terrific cabin for a secluded getaway. It was exactly as described and had everything that was needed. We only had a couple of days but if more I would have stocked up with groceries and never left. Perfect location to just sit and relax.

Excellent property, superb location. Well equipped. Road is a bit rough but it keeps out those who don't need to be there.

What a rare and wonderful experience. So pristine, so beautiful and so relaxing. The perfect place to leave all your worries behind and lay back and just stop.

We had a very comfortable 2 night midwinter stay in the wildest of weather, watching the changing conditions and feeling safe and warm in the cabin. An issue with the heater was attended to promptly by Ben and Victor for which we were very grateful. The beds are comfortable with plenty of spare blankets if needed. We didn’t feel that we needed anything which wasn’t provided apart from the provisions we had taken ourselves, which is important as it is a long drive to a shop. The location of the cabin is breathtaking and unique and we will definitely be returning.
