“Loved the changing moods of the view over five days, evenings and nights.”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This is a gorgeous spot to spend a week or two. The view is to die for and the house is very cosy and comfortable. The highlight was going out ourselves on the ferry to Bruny Island after watching it traverse the strait on an hourly basis, back and forth over the first couple of days. Great spot to explore the South East of Tassie from. Lots of cute towns with gourmet cheeses, funky cafes and local crafts. Old worldly charm lives on in Tassie. And close enough to MONA to make the whole thing work.

“Vista heaven in Kettering”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Bruny Vista is a gorgeous location with views to keep you mesmerised for hours. The stunning coast around Bruny Island and Oyster Bay marina makes this very comfortable and cosy home with everything that is needed for a memorable holiday, an ideal place to explore the South Coast. Set on five acres with access to the sea it doesn't get much better - that is until the visiting wildlife turn up! Pamela's notes on what to do were very helpful and made us feel a little like locals! We will definitely be back!

“Beautiful time-out in Kettering”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a beautiful stay at Bruny Vista Cabin, which I highly recommend to anyone wishing to enjoy the serenity and peace of rural Tasmania. Overlooking the cute town of Kettering and watching the Bruny Island ferries pass by, the comfortable cabin provides the perfect escape from busy everyday life. It is very clean, has a nice decor and character and is big enough to accomodate two couples or a family comfortably. Will definitely stay again the next time we visit Tassie :) Thanks for a great stay, Pamela!

“Heaven in Tasmania”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

If heaven were in Tasmania, it would have to be in Bruny Vista! It was an amazing place and the pictures just don't do it justice. It has everything you need and the amenities top rate. We enjoyed our stay and it's a great place to relax and unwind.
Thanks Pamela for making our stay enjoyable.

“View is fantastic”

person found this review helpful

Has a short stay here. View from the lounge and bedroom is fantastic. Place very peaceful and quiet. Easy distance to the ferry to Bruny Island and eating places in Kettering. Location a bit difficult to find in the evening as no signage to guide you at the accommodation. Driveway and outdoor area very average. Found it difficult exiting the property as limited turning ability at the property as part of the driveway damaged through rains. Driveway also quite narrow and wouldn't like to have a large car or SUV to guide in. Accommodation very cold when we got there, took a while to warm up. Air-conditioner for main heating. Kitchen well equipped.

It was unfortunate the works crew couldn't finish the driveway before you came. They had to down tools due to the unusually heavy rain that flooded significant areas in Tasmania. They will be back on the job when the ground dries.
I'm sorry you found it cold when you arrived, the heat pump has both heat and air cooling modes which you can switch between with the remote control.

“Absolutely Perfect Place to Stay in Tasmania”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I loved Bruny vista cabin, from the moment my husband and I arrived we loved it. We booked for two days but we then booked more time to stay and we would have booked longer again but we had other travel commitments. I loved the view this gorgeous cabin has over Oyster cove. Hop, skip and jump to Bruny Island, great..but really nice accommodation, clean, everything you need, even a library. My husband and I will definitely be going back again and again, thanks Bruny Vista for a memorable stay.

“Lovely stay in a beautiful location ”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in July 2015

We travelled from Glasgow, UK and stayed here in July 2015 visiting family and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Accommodation is located on a hill which offers beautiful views across the water and you can watch all the boats passing by. Everything you need for a stay is provided, two good sized bedrooms and an open living space with great cooking facilities.

Location is excellent for exploring locally, going for walks and very handy to get the ferry to Bruny Island which is lovely.

We stayed in the middle of winter and the accommodation had all amenities to ensure we were kept warm despite cold temperatures outside!

Would recommend to friends and family :)
