My partner and I celebrated my birthday with 2 of our friends over a long week recently and we had the most enjoyable time. The place is fantastic and the setting is beautiful. We spent a lot of time on the deck and were visited by many of the local resident wallabies and birdlife. The kitchen is quite well equipped for a rental (with a pantry with all the basics) and we all enjoyed the views from the dining area back towards Adventure Bay. The lounge area is very comfortable and we were very happy to be able to light a fire on one of the nights (too warm on the other nights) as it made for the best atmosphere. Big comfy beds with very nice linen - so all around we were happy and rested. Hard to fault anything - only one thing - it would have been good to have some shade on the deck as it gets all day sun. But the upside was we had fantastic weather and its a very easy walk to the beach :) Just the place to relax and catch up with friends. We would be happy to stay again. Thank you Jan.

“Best Stay We Ever Had”
Reviewed 8 February 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I mean really. Of all the places we've been, this is by far the best we've ever been. We stayed 4 nights including Christmas Eve. The drive in from Hobart, on the ferry, and then to this property was itself a wonderful drive.
When we arrived, we were all spellbound. In fact before we even reached the house, we stopped on the fields within the property boundaries to watch the Wallabies, and other wildlife. For us city dwellers this was so great indeed.
The house itself was everything the other people have described here already. All 5 of us were of the opinion this was a place worth coming back to again.
Fireplace was really welcome - we had some relatively warm days, but also some really cool ones. Patio was great to relax on and watch the curious animals, especially when they came out toward the evening more active.
Kitchen was fully equipped, and we managed to make our Christmas Eve's meal and sat around the solid wooden table. The patio had a gas grill, which we also used once.
Fantastic place. Thanks Jan.

“Peaceful, quiet and relaxing stay”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed at the Adventure Bay Retreat Lodge in May 2016. Having driven down from Lake St Clair we were very tired when we arrived but upon seeing this beautiful cottage our energy levels quickly rose.

It is a simple yet beautiful cottage with no other buildings within a four hundred meters vicinity. The natural beauty that you are surrounded with include the flora and fauna as well as wildlife such as wallabies and birds.

The cottage comes with a wood fireplace, which you have to put in some effort yourself, a kitchen, television and dvd player (with Bose sound system and movies included), a spa jacuzzi and a king sized bed. The owners even included 2 bicycles for you to explore the area. There is also a bbq pit if you feel like having one.

Although Adventure Bay is about an hours drive from the Bruny Island Ferry Terminal we stayed there partly because it was close to the Bruny Island Cruise. It is a 15 mins walk to the office.

Overall we had a great time here. The owner Jan communicated with me regularly before my trip to advise me on the details.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

What a great spot to stay on Bruny Island. The house is spacious and comfortable, with a gorgeous open fire to warm you on the the coldest day, fully equipped kitchen,(with lots of extras) and beautifully comfortable beds. Native wildlife at your door, and a short walk to the small centre of Adventure Bay, it's a great spot to just relax and enjoy the pristine environment of southern Taasmania.

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Great house - love the stone fireplace. And you need it as it is cold on Bruny Island. It would have been good to have entered into a warm house rather than a cold house that takes a good while to warm up. Good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds. 2 good sized bathrooms. Interesting that there is a bath and no shower (although there is a hand held shower) in the ensuite considering the reliance on tank water. Pantry is well stocked with all the basics. Adventure Bay is lovely and the house is well situated to take advantage of the water views with very friendly wallabies roaming around. Look out for the albino one.

“Outstanding accommodation!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

What a wonderful holiday! My friends and I stayed here and it was just fantastic. Luxurious beds, modern and spacious bathrooms, gorgeous wood fire and super comfy and enormous couch. A highlight was watching the wallabies at dusk hop around the grounds while we enjoyed the warmth of being inside! I couldn't recommend more highly and I will definitely be back!

“Magnificent retreat for a great weekend”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Recently stayed with a group of friends and had just the best time. The beds were super comfortable, the kitchen perfect for cooking in, the living areas were cosy and warm for lazing about and chatting. Could ask for a nicer place to stay. Can't wait for the next trip to Brunny.
