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.

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.
Cloudy bay villa is just magic. Far enough away to experience the magnificent wilderness of Bruny Island, but not so far away from other must-see attractions like the wilderness cruise and the cheese factory. Very comfortable accommodation with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Our favorite feature of the house is the enormous windows through which to see the constantly changing coast, especially at sunset.The coastal retreats team were tremendously helpful from initial contact to a reluctant goodbye. We will most definitely be back, hopefully accompanied by our family and friends to show them just how great a Bruny Island holiday can be.

Amazing place to stay! 180 degree ocean views and amazing view of stars. The drive to get there is worth it!
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.
Amazing place to stay. Such an incredible view even with bad weather. The villa had everything you needed for a perfect weekend away!
