This traditional Dennes Point beachside shack looks out over North Bruny's Nebraska Beach, and is only 30 seconds' walk to its white sands and calm silver waters.
Although cleverly renovated to provide all the creature comforts, Carrington Cottage retains its simple beach-shack look and feel, and it is the perfect base for exploring Bruny Island'sgourmet and wilderness delights.
Is a popular swimming, sailing, diving, fishing and kayaking spot;
Has a growing arts and crafts community (the Dennes Point hall has reopened to include a gallery, The Point Restaurant and Jetty cafe and providore store);
Is the drop-off point for Hobart's ferries;
Makes the perfect starting point for a self-styled gourmet trail (check out Get Shucked Oysters, and Bruny Island Cheese Co, for starters); and,
Is a fantastic place to head out for bushwalks or to go whale/dolphin-spotting.
Your hardest decision of the day? Whether to sit on the deck and watch the sunset, with a glass of wine and your own caught-and-cooked seafood dinner, or head out for a meal at one of Bruny's excellent restaurants or pubs.
"We appreciated not only the location (and how sunny it was), but also the fabulous caliber of the cottage, how well stocked it was with good quality linens, towels, kitchenware, etc., the comfy furniture and the cleanliness." – A Cooke, Hobart; Nov 2012
