Saintys Creek is a tranquil and beautiful body of water flowing through centuries-old forest and dispersing into the serene Cloudy Bay Lagoon on South Bruny Island. Saintys Creek Cottage is located on a secluded bush block, a short walk from the creek – and a million miles from the stresses of city life.

From the outside, this beautiful timber cottage looks like it may have once housed early settlers, but inside, it is timber-lined, warm and welcoming. The large living and dining space has an open fire coupled with electric heating and a clean trouble-free kitchen with comfortable furniture.

Double glass doors open up to the large outdoor living deck with a step down to the attractive grassed garden area below -- at dawn or dusk, you will often share the space with one of Bruny Island’s unique White Wallabies - regular visitors to this garden.

Sitting outside with a nice bottle of wine accompanied by exquisite local cheeses and engaging with the stunning bush surroundings, enjoying the forest life whilst taking in the serenity of this truly special place, is a typically mesmerizing Saintys Creek Cottage experience.

Saintys Creek Cottage is located at the southern end of Bruny Island, Tasmania.

This unspoiled seclusion is located more than 30 minutes from the nearest store, so it is recommended visitors bring their own provisions to make the most of the Saintys Creek setting.

Guest Reviews

We just loved this rustic, yet comfortable cottage in the forest a couple of kilometres south of Lunawanna. In fact, we loved it so much we stayed an extra night. The cottage is well-equipped for a restful stay, with modern cooking facilities, wood for the cosy stove in the living area and a delightful bed. The deck on the northern side is a great place to sit with a morning coffee and watch the visiting fauna, including wrens, a red-breasted robin and potoroos nibbling the grass.

Thank you for a magical stay. It was a beautiful rainy night and the forest smelled amazing. The little pademelons were extremely cute. Lovely stay, Can't wait to come back!

Lovely little cottage. It was clean and fully equipped. The surrounds were beautiful and the wildlife visited us every day. It was amazing to have the Pademelons come right up to the back door. Would recommend this property.

We had a great time on Bruny Island. Saintys Creek Cottage is a brilliant spot. So much wildlife. Very exciting. The bird bath is a fantastic way of being so many of Tassie's birds up close. We got to see 10 of Tassie's 12 endemic birds plus many others including a wedge-tailed eagle drinking near bridge, pademelons, wallabies, possums & rakali as well. The cottage is very comfortable and set up well. A pond or dish on the ground with water would be good for ground-dwelling wildlife. They polished off the dish of water we put out each night.

Quaint & cosy, just the way we like it.

We loved our stay at Saintys Creek Cottage; cosy and quiet just what we like. The kitchen was well equipped, one of the best I've seen. Loved watching the wildlife cruising around. For us the lack of phone reception and limited internet was absolute bliss. Minor negative, we happened t be there on a rare day when it was stinking hot, a pedestal fan would have been bliss. Would stay here again.
