"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived"

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.

Bushwalkers will be spoilt for choice – the majestic old-growth forest is laced with walking trails. The more adventurous may want to take a kayak for a paddle down Saintys Creek and explore oyster-lined Cloudy Bay Lagoon.

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.

I loved how secluded the property was , nobody around for miles , perfect place to unwind and relax . The property itself was in amazing condition , the wooden decor perfectly in sync with the location , so close to nature that only visitors we had were the wallabies.

3rd stay at Sainty’s and hope to come again next year and we are from South Australia. Just love this little slice of paradise, it’s like stepping back in time. Quaint, clean and comfortable. Secluded and picturesque with wild life, warm fires and stars that go on forever. Cheers Ben and Team 10/10

An idyllic retreat on South Bruny in a quiet bush setting. The ideal place to stay if you are looking for peace and privacy. Uncrowded beaches and walking tracks are within easy reach.

A very special property in a beautiful part of the world. We loved our stay at Sainty's Creek Cottage and can't wait to return there...2 nights is just not enough time to take in the silence, the wonder of the mossy garden, the bird life at the creek and the local walks through forests. A relaxing home away from home and we really appreciated how easy it was to check in and out, thank you so much :)

The Sainty's Creek cottage was super cute, cosy and lovely to hang out in during a rainy Tassie weekend - we loved all the wood and the handmade feel of the place. Definitely worth travelling further down the road to check out the headland at Cloudy Bay, which is gorgeous. We spent lots of time spotting wildlife, and of course enjoying Bruny Island cheese and wine next to the fire. The coffee machine was a lovely addition, and the rooms and furniture were clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

A lovely night spent here on the way through to Cloudy Bay. Very cosy in a nice quiet setting.
