We stayed at the Tree House for my 50th birthday. My family also rented another house in Stuart St. Our house was unique in it’s construction and it was also on a very large block, so fairly private (we did overlook another property on one side, but more of an issue for them than us). The views were amazing and you could sit outside on three sides of the property, moving to follow the sun or avoid the breeze.
We had just the one night at the Tree House on Bruny Island, but we would have loved to have
spent a few more days exploring this lovely island. The accommodation was perfect for our family of 4, including 2 teenagers who had no problems navigating the stairs up to the attic room. Lovely views across the Channel and just a few minutes drive to the Bruny Hotel where we had a delicious meal. Other accommodations on the island had a minimum stay of 2 or 3 nights during January school holidays, whilst the Tree House was able to be booked for the one night. Property had everything you need. Would definitely recommend this accommodation.
Lonely Planet review
This wonderful open-plan timber place overlooks romantically named Sheep Wash Bay, with two
bedrooms and everything that opens and shuts. The price drops to $210 for stays of two nights or more.

Australia’s best tree houses
Where: Bruny Island,
Tasmania This very habitable abode at Alonnah on the north-west side of South Bruny Island is the perfect setting for a great Robinson Crusoe meets Tarzan style holiday. Set high atop poles on a hillside surrounded by a forest of twisted eucalyptus, the aptly named Tree House offers commanding views straight across the historic D’Entrecasteaux Channel towards the snow-capped Hartz range on the Tasmanian mainland. Accommodating up to four adults, the stylish yet humble home features high ceilings, a modern kitchen, a wood-burning heater, cosy lounge with sound system and TV and two queen-sized bedrooms — one reached via a unique internal wooden ladder. With three large outdoor decks you can enjoy an outdoor barbecue and soak up the atmosphere as you sit back and admire the ocean views that stretch to the horizon. Or set out to explore nearby coastal tracks or go bushwalking in South Bruny National Park.
