"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.

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

Beautiful secluded cottage. Outstanding experience. The cottage is beautifully set deep in lush forest with only the sounds of nature to wake you in the morning. I stayed there for two nights with my wife and we could not have been happier. A wonderful place and we will be back. The communication prior to our trip was excellent, our host made sure that we would have the perfect stay.

Thank you for allowing us to spend 2 nights at your retreat. We had a great time on Bruny and sorry we did not have more time to spend there. The cottage, contents, and facilities are first class and we found it with ease from your direction. Thank you again.

What a paradise! I absolutely loved having wallabies as breakfast company!

Gorgeous cottage! Lovely and peaceful. Saw lots of local wildlife and can recommend the Bruny Hotel for a good feed and a cold beer. Very relaxing at the cottage. Would definitely come back!

We had a wonderful stay at The Cottage. It was peaceful and beautiful, surrounded by the multilayered Tasmanian bush with visits from wallabies and pademelons and a very insistent shrike thrush. One of our trio loves birds so after dark we went looking for owls. No owls but so many other nocturnal creatures. A walk to Cloudy Bay East Head through flowering shrubs accompanied by fast moving squalls was invigorating and then returning to the cottage and a warm fire. What more could we want? Thank you Ben for organising a last minute booking . Hope to be back .
