We spent two nights here and honestly sitting on that deck watching the sun go down while eating Bruny Is. cheese, oysters, smoked salmon and wine was the highlight of our entire stay! It's really worth forking out a little bit extra on your accommodation and staying here to enjoy the peace, the view, and the wonderful amenities this 'cabin'... More

We loved our stay in this cottage. The view back to Hobart is amazing and constantly changing with the sun and/or cloud cover. The country road has minimal traffick (2 days here and we would have been lucky to see/hear a dozen cars). Apart from the sheep in a nearby paddock, there is virtually no noise as you can barely...

We stayed at Captains Cottage for 3 nights in early November. When we first arrived their was a greasy smell throughout the cottage, we believe this is because the bbq was stored inside, we moved the BBQ outside and ventilated the cottage, which improved the smell. The cleanliness was average, the kitchen had been wiped down but had streak marks... More

What an amazing place to stay, we arrived at dusk with just enough light left to enjoy the stunning 180 degree views from the deck, the lovely owner Mhyrlyn had given us easy directions to follow after we left the ferry, so we had no trouble finding our little piece of heaven. We were so impressed with the detail and... More

I have written in about this review previously and it was not published. The person who left this review is not on our guest list. I noticed that other reviews written by this person are all negative, especially so about Bruny Island. If a guest has a genuine issue with the property we encourage them to contact reception as soon... More

Wonderful place to stay for a really relaxing holiday. The house had all we needed for our 5 day stay. Good walks nearby but just sitting on the deck was a great way to pass the time as well. Best to take all your own food as restaurants and shops are not close.

After some dubious stays in Tasmania in so called luxury accommodation, we held our breath as we drove to Captains Cabin. It literally took our breath away from the moment we pulled up. The view is sensational, the staff friendly, efficient and extremely helpful. The cabin is just gorgeous, fully equipped and so comfortable. We felt at home immediately. As... More

The views really are fantastic. We stayed for 3 nights in January ( summer) but it was so cold and windy it felt like winter. The house was warm though. The house is situated on the northern part of Bruny Island, it is a long way to the shop ( really small "supermarket") so I suggest bringing most food you... More

The views are stunning. At night (by looking at the feedback book and own experience) a family of Spotted Quolls frolic on the balcony - priceless. There is a good range of kitchen implements , much like you would find at home. It is quiet, private with a track down to the beach. Downside was a water saving shower (I... More

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... More
