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.

Guest Reviews

One of the most special places I have ever stayed in. I didn't want to leave. I will be back

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.

Cloudy bay cabin is in an amazing, remote location that provides a real sense of Tasmanian wilderness. You can sit comfy by the fire while looking out over cloudy bay. Very comfortable and a unique experience.

The place is as isolated as you would want. It’s at the end of a bumpy 4km driveway, on the edge of a 3km beach and I didn’t see a single other person for the two days I was there, only curious cows. And Deepak who came to help me with the heater. The fitout was done by people who understand the important bits (milk, torches, good bed linen, cleanliness, maintenance) and don’t bother with the fancy stuff. The negative bits are not the fault of the managers, but you have to know if you're going to stay: THE OPTUS SIGNAL IS CRAP. Telstra is probably ok, but for the phone, it was absent most of the time, with brief windows every few hours. Inside or outside the house. So prepare for not having comms. This lead to an additional problem as I couldn’t figure out the heater, needed to ask for help and sat huddled in a blanket as I waited for the Optus satellites to tilt around the earth.. It was a warm blanket and the seas in Cloudy Bay were spectacular. Eventually I got a signal and Ben, who got Deepak, who showed me the hidden control panel on the heater (it was a new heater; the control panel now has a label on it). It was a comfortable comforting cabin in a profoundly beautiful place and I could have stayed there for months. I just would have nipped over to the mainland to pick up a Telstra sim.

Great place! Great location! Awesome winter getaway.
