Attention to detail.

“We would just like to say a huge thank you to Jan for a wonderful stay at The Lodge. We had a group of 6 friends stay and as soon as we started to head up the driveway, we were struck by how stunning the settings and the actual lodge were. Once we were inside we all spent the first 30 minutes ooh-ing and ahh-ing over each and every detail. Their attention to detail was not only in the beautiful house with reclaimed timber beams and full window frontage, but also in all the smaller things which so often get neglected in holiday accommodation. We were treated to lovely Country Road towels, a pod coffee machine, heated flooring, a pantry full of condiments, and my favourite – a gorgeous red Smeg fridge. It was very obvious that no expense had been spared in either the building of the lodge or in the interior decoration, everything was of the uttermost quality and style. We really felt so spoilt staying there and to top it all off, the setting was just so peaceful and private – we were surrounded by trees, wallaby’s and the water. Even when it rained we had no complaints about staying inside its cosy walls and eating the amazing fresh Bruny Island – cheeses, oysters, smoked fish and fudge that we had collected from around the Island. I can’t wait to come back and stay at the little spa cottage at the foothill of the lodge.”

Fantastic winter retreat.

“We spent a long weekend here and it was brilliant. Wonderful deck area with BBQ that overlooks bush and grassland teaming with wallabies. Fire place was great as we were there in winter, it’s such a secluded spot but only a short walk to adventure bay. I’d highly recommend a stay at Adventure Bay Retreat.”

Stunning.

“Our extended family of 6 stayed here in May 2013, including two very small children. From the initial contact with Jan the manager our experience was extraordinary. The house could not be more perfectly situated In a beautiful valley at Adventure Bay, surrounded by the tallest gums & numerous white wallabies. Adventure bay is the pick of locations on Bruny itself, wonderful blue waters, white sands, shops, walks and the fantastic must do speed boat trip. We found plenty to do on Bruny Island over the week. The house is luxury all over, the best of everything especially bed linens & towels – wow. Loved the nespresso as well! The kids weren’t wanting for entertainment with a cute tv/toy laden loft & the massive swing and slide outside. We were blessed with great weather, but the nights by the fire place were divine. We would love to come back every year.”

Brilliant.

“We stayed here for 4 nights in early April and had a wonderful time. The lodge was built last year and has been thoughtfully designed and kitted out with a well stocked pantry, modern kitchen including a coffee machine, built in laundry, a lovely lounge area with great views and a nice fireplace which got plenty of use due to the inclement weather. Our 3 year old also loved the big, big swing outside. It was a wonderful place to get away, relax and watch the wallabies (grey and albinos) out the windows. Bruny Island is a fab island well worth visiting with plenty of history, walks and yummy gourmet foods to tempt the palate. If/when we go back, would definitely stay at the Lodge again.”

Absolute Joy

Whoever could believe the absolute joy we felt upon arrival. The sheer beauty of The Lodge is absolutely second to none! The styling, the layout, the furniture, and furnishings are so beautiful. Thank you for creating this haven. Our plan was to spend our honeymoon here, with the notion that we would return in years to come with our ‘family‘. This has been a new start to our already beautiful life. Look forward to our return.

Thank you

Thank you for providing the perfect romantic retreat for our weekend away. We thoroughly enjoyed soaking in the nice big bath tub with a glass of ‘bubbly’ and loved seeing the wallabies come up to the house at dusk and dawn. The house itself was beautifully presented with every need catered for. Bruny Island is an amazing part of the world. Thank you for sharing it with us. We will definitely return. We were lucky enough to see some whales too!
