"On its solitary dune my house faced the four walls of the world."
- Henry Beston, The Outermost House
Cloudy Bay Villa offers visitors a unique experience on secluded south Bruny Island. This spectacular two-story house on a gentle rise over Whalebone Point offers some of the best views in Tasmania.
Cloudy Bay Villa Accommodation
Families, couples or small groups will find this light-filled beach house cosy, comfortable and welcoming. The view dominates both upstairs and downstairs, with multiple living areas and a sheltered outdoor deck on the first floor.
Downstairs, an open, well-appointed and modern kitchen looks out to an expansive dining and living area with a huge dining table – clearly the focus of long dinners, sharing stories about the day’s activities. Afterwards, retire to the leather couches in front of the gas log fire.
Each of the three bedrooms are comfortably appointed, with queen beds, their own ensuite bathrooms and luxury linen. The timber lining and natural finishes throughout the Villa fit with the serenity of the natural surroundings.
An outdoor dining setting at the front makes the most of the ocean view and the rolling, open grassland leading down to the beach. There is plenty of room here for outdoor activity – or reading to the sound of the distant surf.
Large open paddocks for children to run around on while still in easy view from the lounge room.
Walking track to Whalebone Point and access to beach and walk to the Cloudy Bay Lagoon inlet.
Cloudy Bay Villa is located at the southern end of Bruny Island.
This unspoiled seclusion is located more than 30 minutes from the nearest store, so it is recommended visitors to the Villa bring their own provisions to make the most of the beautiful accommodation setting.
A stay at Cloudy Bay Villa is an opportunity to be a part of a majestic and unspoiled vista that engages the senses and invigorates the soul.

This is a spectacular property. It sits high up on a rise overlooking the whole panorama of Cloudy Bay, which has to be one of the most beautiful bays I have ever seen. There is an easy path down to a completely deserted beach. There is also a rocky promontory in front of the house where rare penguins nest and exquisite rock pools with bull kelp lapping the water's edge. The experience there is one of utter remoteness and retreat and being steeped in deep nature. I felt I was reconnecting with the Spirit of the Earth..........
Waking up to the sound of the pounding waves of the Southern Ocean, looking straight out of the bedroom window onto the bay. The wind and the stillness, clouds moving, the ever changing seascape, barely a light visible at night. Back to basics. The house is very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen, wood paneling in the bedrooms, hardwood floors and 4 bathrooms. The views are absolutely stunning from every window. We had a big family gathering there with 8 people, some from Europe, some from Australia, some country people and some city people and we were all extremely happy with the place. We all felt a profound sense of letting go, relaxation and openness to the beauty of land. We left feeling inspired and refreshed and reconnected as a family.
We stayed during May 2018 and the night we arrived there was some of the worst weather the area had experienced since early 1900 I believe. It was blowing a gale and loads of rain. The house was a perfect sanctuary against the extremes and the Lounge offered a glassed panorama to witness the exhilarating show. As disappointed as we were to get such challenging weather for our time away, we all left feeling fortunate to have experienced it on this beautiful island. Ben could not have been more informative and accommodating during the bad weather and was always eager to assist wherever possible. I loved the location and found the Kitchen ample for groups wanting to cook. Three large bedrooms, all with En-suites made for a very comfortable stay. I would recommend this house and (Island) to anyone that really enjoys watching nature at its core.
This has to be best holiday home in Tasmania. Our stay was sublime even with very Autumnal weather. The views are top 10 as are the house furnishings. Lots of great wildlife and walking tracks. If you want to really get away from it all this is the place to do it. We will be back.

What a location!!! sensational view from all the rooms
Ben was very accommodating and gave us lots of local tips on what to see where to swim etc
This property is a beach house with all you need for a fabulous getaway- location is isolated sitting up above Cloudy Bay .
Our stay was one to be locked into the memory bank. We keep coming back due to the welcoming management and the quality of our accommodation. Bruny island is a special place for us away from the maddening crowds where we can unwind and feel comfortable. Thanks to Ben and all the team that made everything just right. We will come back again soon.
