“Silence is Golden”
Reviewed 28 November 2010

A two night stay at the Captains Cabin on Bruny Island was a delight. We were met by the concierge who showed us the ropes and then discreetly disappeared. The Cabin is fairly unimpressive from the outside particularly the beach view but it is what is on the inside that counts, and what a view. Timber decor with comfortable furniture and good bathrooms provided a cozy atmosphere. The expansive deck provided a spectacular view. Beach access was easy from the property, beachcombing a must with oysters and mussells for the taking. The nights were silent and dark, a perfect remedy for sleep and relaxation. The new cafe and art precinct were 5 minutes down the road. The cabin is located on North Bruny at Dennes Point, the quiet end of the island but all other sightseeing activities were still close at hand and easily accessible. A perfect place to wind down and enjoy some solitude.

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. The house was spotless, the floors carpeted and the access to the beach, although it could be improved with a few steps was easy to negotiate (we are 50 plus) and had no problem. The beach was wonderful, private and serene. Bruny Island is a wonderful destination and the Captains Cabin a great choice for privacy and wonderful views. Only regret we could not stay longer.

About five minutes after we arrived Captains Cabin another couple turned up who had also booked for the same dates. After 1/2 hour on the phone other accommodation was found for this couple (lucky for us we got their first...i think...). The house had a great back deck with nice views of the water. The downside was getting to the beach....the walk from the front of the house to the beach is quite hard. The beach itself is very nice, It was described as luxury accommodation, I would have expected polished timber floors not particle flooring with nails sticking out. The website also stated that basic provisions were provided however this was not the case.....the items provided were old and the containers they were kept in quite dirty. Needless to say we had to buy our own basics including powder for the dishwasher. The nearest shop was at Adventure Bay which is a 35 minute drive. Apart from this the house was clean and tidy, comfy beds, nice furniture and had a washing machine and dryer (huge box of washing powder provided).

  • Liked — the quiet night time
  • Disliked — the access to the beach

This review is not appropriate, it is very old, the property has different managers and is a unique accommodation.
