Carrington Cottage Bruny Island

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

We endeavour to provide a same-day response to Stayz enquiries.

Carrington Cottage is a traditional Dennes Point beachside shack looking out over beautiful D'Entrecasteaux Channel and North Bruny's Nebraska Beach.

To get to us, you will have spent a relaxing 15 minutes crossing the Channel on the car ferry, and a further 20 minutes driving north to the very tip of Bruny Island.

Although cleverly renovated to provide all the creature comforts, Carrington Cottage retains its simple beach-shack look and feel, and it is the perfect base for exploring Bruny Island's gourmet and wilderness delights.

Dennes Point...

is a popular swimming, sailing, diving, fishing and kayaking spot;

boasts fine food at the Jetty Cafe, and local "Art at the Point"

makes the perfect starting point for a self-styled gourmet trail – check out Get Shucked Oysters, and Bruny Island Cheese Co, for starters – and

is a fantastic place to head out for bushwalks or to go whale/dolphin-spotting.


"We appreciated not only the location (and how sunny it was), but also the fabulous caliber of the cottage, how well stocked it was with good quality linens, towels, kitchenware, etc., the comfy furniture and the cleanliness." – A Cooke, Hobart; Nov 2012

Dating from the 1950s, this traditional cottage has fully refurbished bathroom, kitchen, polished floors throughout, repainting inside and out, and wrap-around deck.

Inside, this cosy cottage offers open-plan living, kitchen, dining area and lounge (with LCD TV, DVD, books and games, and wood heater); two bedrooms; and a separate bathroom with shower and toilet.

The shack can sleep 5 people. The master bedroom has a Queen Bed; the second bedroom offers 2 singles and a trundle. There is also a folding cot. All linen is supplied as a linen pack and towel on each bed for you to make up. The packs contain freshly-laundered fitted sheet, flat sheet, doona cover and pillow cases. This gives you the opportunity to make beds up how you like, and select the beds you wish to use.

Outside is a gas BBQ and picnic table, laundry and sunny grassed back garden. The timber deck wraps around 3 sides of Carrington, with magnificent views from the front over Nebraska Beach and D'Entrecasteaux Channel.


Carrington Cottage is smoking-free.

We do not allow any animals on the property at all.

A telephone landline is available in the shack for guest use. There is no restriction on incoming calls, but outgoing calls are limited to a 100km radius, and the phone does not dial to mobiles (cell phones). Mobile phone coverage on Bruny Island is variable. There is a public phone at the community hall.

You'll need to bring all food, toiletries and beach towels.

Basic food items are available from the Produce Store at the Jetty Cafe (2 minutes' walk north from Carrington Cottage). However, the cafe is not open every day, and evening meals may not always be available. To check visit the Jetty Cafe website.

Basic items (milk, newspapers) are also available at the small takeaway at the ferry terminal at Roberts Point, 20km (20 minutes) to the south.

Petrol (gasoline) is not available at Dennes Point. Petrol is available from the supermarket at Adventure Bay, about 45 minutes' drive south from the shack.

The cottage is a mere 50m to safe, clean Nebraska Beach. We are 100m from the Dennes Point boat ramp, and 300m from the jetty. For yachties and boaties, Carrington Cottage is able to provide its own all-weather mooring situated right off the shack.

Visit our island shacks website for more information on Carrington Cottage, and our Spring Beach Holiday House on Tassie's sunshine east coast. Stay at both and make the best of your holiday in Paradise.

Gorgeous beachside holiday house

  • 4 of 5

We loved our long weekend away at Carrington Cottage.

They had everything we needed for our family of five. The location was perfect, just across the road from the beach, beautiful views, lovely big deck out the front to eat dinner and enjoy a glass of wine!

The only negative thing we could say was that it was a bit of a pain having to make up all the beds on arrival after a rushed morning of getting three kids packed and a long drive, then unpack and get settled... to then have to make up five beds on top of all that meant a pretty exhausted Mum at the end of the day.

I would usually expect to have to do those sorts of things at cheaper cabin/camping places, not at a beach home you have paid decent prices for.

But apart from that, we couldn't fault the place.

Thank you for a lovely holiday!

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place and didn't want to leave! Had everything that you could want in a holiday home. Laying on the lounge looking out at the view was so relaxing and the wood fire on the cool nights was a great comfort. We hope to come back one day!
