Bruny Boathouse is situated at Alonnah, exactly thirty minutes from the ferry at Roberts Point. If you have come to relax and get away from it all, then this is the place for you. Sit in the Poang chair and take in the magnificent views, read a book, or play a game from the games provided. Fish from the jetty, swim at the child friendly beach or simply collect shells from Shell Beach in front of the property.

The historic Dray walking track starts just north of the property and the History room is on the main road next to the police station.

The Bruny Island Hotel is further down the road and provides meals, and there is a small shop that provides essentials opposite the Hotel.

We have planted close to 200 Tasmanian native plants on the property. You will observe the bird life on Bruny Island is incredible. On each excursion different species of birds can be seen.

You may be lucky to see a pod of dolphins swimming in the Channel out in front.

The Boathouse has double glazed windows and is fully insulated as it is newly built. Polished Tasmanian oak floorboards are throughout the property and the kitchen is well equipped with a large microwave oven and a generous size fridge/freezer.

Travel south to Tasmania's southern-most vineyard and further to the historic Cape Bruny lighthouse. Over to Adventure Bay, one of Australia's most significant bays in terms of history, and take in many local attractions including wildlife tours, the berry farm, the chocolate factory and more lovely walks.

Travelling north, take in the cheese factory, oyster farm and the excellent gallery at Dennes Point which features work of local artists.

Penguins can be seen at the Neck and a ranger is often present during the summer months.

The Boathouse is between north and south Bruny, so thus ideally situated to partake in many of these activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational sunset views! We had a fabulous four night stay at the Bruny Boathouse, the only down side being our stay wasnt long enough! The setting is idyllic, we could not wish for anything more. The accommodation located on the west side of the island is perfectly appointed to take in sunset views whilst relaxing on the balcony. The attention to detail was well appreciated as my son enjoyed an early visit from the Easter bunny :-) This place is a little slice of heaven! My six year old son wants us to return later in the year, I couldnt think of a better answer than yes! Cant thank you enough Helen, congratulations on a wonderful cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three Nights = The Great Escape My husband and I have just returned home from a week in Tasmania and we spent 3 nights at the Bruny Boathouse enjoying a simple and tranquil lifestyle filled with fresh air and beautiful water views. The Boathouse has two bedrooms but we only used one for the two of us. It's clean, fragrant and oh so comfortable. Plenty of towels left out for us and some nice toiletries which were unexpected as was the sweet treat but very definitely gratefully and warmly received. We found the kitchen well equipped with good knives, pans, oven dishes etc. which made cooking a breeze. We've stayed in places with cheap cookware and it makes it all so much of a chore. We had planned to dine at The Bruny Hotel down the road pretty much for all dinners and found we only visited the once and whilst it was good, cooking in the Boathouse kitchen was just as easy (and cheaper which is always a bonus!). The small store in Adventure Bay had fresh meat and veggies which made a home cooked dinner easy. Also the winery has some gourmet meat products too so there's plenty of produce available not forgetting Get Shucked which we called in at every day for an on site oyster fix but you could just as easily take some home. See how easy I called the Boathouse home? Water pressure in the shower is great. So refreshing to have a hot shower after a long hard walk. We did the Fluted Cape walk and I wasn't expecting it to be quite so uphill (and back down again). The heater was sufficient for the cooler nights and we didn't need to turn on the electric blanket on the bed but it's there if you need it. We also didn't turn on the TV. Who needs that flickering screen when there are beautiful views? But it's there and there's also a decent selection of DVDs as well as books and games. I think the only thing the Boathouse is missing is perhaps a speaker or something to play music on but it's not a big deal - only a nice to have. The roads are pretty dark at night so take care. On the short drive back from the pub we saw at least 3 wallabies jumping around. Speaking of creatures, the Boathouse is fully fly screened but we had a few of them come in from somewhere. Not sure what this would be like in Summer... If you're going to visit beautiful Bruny Island then the Boathouse is a great place to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely quiet spot with great owner We had an excellent stay at the very nice Bruny Boathouse. The owner left treats and also was very helpful re busy ferries and the Easter holidays. Would definitely stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stay again Helen's place is the perfect place for our visits to Bruny. The location is close from the most highlights of the island and all details in the house are amazing.
