“Amazing Bruny Island accommodation”

We absolutely loved our 2 nights at the Tree House and were sad to leave. The views from anywhere inside and from the 3 balconies were stunning. The house had a lovely, roomy open plan design downstairs and a large upstairs bedroom. Every possible traveller's need had been thought of and catered for and there was a very generous supply of every type of cooking essential. It was quite cold during our stay, but the reverse-cycle air-con worked well, but we much preferred to use the fire (efficient, smoke-free).
It is hard to find negatives and they are only minor but; the upstairs bedroom is accessed via a steep, narrow staircase (taken from an old ship). I had no problems with this, although at188cm, I did manage to hit my head a couple of times. I thought it added extra character to the house but I think people should be aware that but it might not be suitable for some. Also the driveway was quite long, steep and consisted of dirt and rocks. Our small 2wd had no problems but not sure what would happen if there were a lot of rain.
We have stayed at many places here and OS over the last few years and the Tree House is up there with our absolute favourites.

“Great stay!”
Reviewed October 29, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My husband and I had a lovely stay at The Tree House in Alonnah on Bruny Island. It is the perfect location from which to explore the island. The ocean views from all sides of the house were amazing. The the house was very comfortable and the kitchen was easy to use. We did stop in Kettering and got our groceries before we got on the ferry but did find a bottle shop in the town. We had plenty of wild visitors on the property to keep us entertained as we sat on the decks that surround the house. We were sad to leave. This was are first VRBO and the owner was very responsive by email.

“Wallabies in the garden.”

An unexpected night on Bruny was capped off by staying at this tranquil property. From first contact with the quest host we found communication/directions clear, precise & easy to follow. 180 degree views of the bay, cosy fire, sheltered decks.
Highly recommend early wake up for spotting wild life. We counted 7 wallabies in the front yard.
You'll feel like you're staying at a friends house, enjoy.

“Top Rate”
Reviewed January 27, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Absolutely stunning place in terms of the views - could not be better. On practical things, the kitchen is well equipped with condiments and necessities so it is actually a working kitchen unlike some places where the appliances are there but other equipment are limited, thus making cooking challenging. No problems here. The place is well maintained and furnished and truly felt like home away from home. 3 things to take note of: (a) stairs to the loft are steep (my teenage daughter fell off the stairs and fractured her wrist); (b) the driveway to the house is also steep so depending on the type of vehicle you are driving, you could scratch the bottom of it; (c) coffee machine is available but bring along ground coffee and not the beans cause it does not have a grinder. But we love the place and would want to book this place again if ever we are on Bruny Island.

Thanks Eric, You and your family are always welcome to stay with us! You will be pleased to know that the driveway is due to be resurfaced this year. And because of the feedback about the coffee machine (I am a tea drinker) We will get a coffee grinder. Also, sorry to hear abouut your daughter's wrist.

“The tree house is a truly sensational experience at Bruny Island.”
Reviewed March 25, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The views from the Tree House are tremendous, water views from every window available. The house is wonderful to come home to after a day on Bruny, feeling like you are still in nature through its unique design and wood finishes. I recommend the Tree House to anyone coming to Bruny.

“Hard to Leave”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed for 2 nights, we wish it was for more. Leaving this morning we were discussing when we could stay again. Such a beautiful house with beautiful views. We stayed in for dinner on the last night. Fresh oysters from Get Shucked and delicious cheese from Bruny Island Cheese Factory, We sat on the balcony from late afternoon, chatting eating and drinking until it got too nippy. To our delight when dusk fell 4 wallabies appeared in the garden. Really who could ask for more. The views are stunning, the accommodation cozy but in no way small, for a total break this is the perfect location.
