Great location

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful position, sheets and bedding very comfortable, lovely cottage character. Unfortunately little things let this property down . Running out of gas during our stay and something had died underfloor making the lounge room uninhabitable.

Unsatisfactory level of cleanliness

Greasy Kitchen, filth and I mean filthy couches, stained Bed Quilts and filthy and I mean filthy windows.

Bruny Island Shack Stay

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in Red Gate Cottage with our dog. Grateful to have a place that takes our hound we booked this stay without doing much research. The bedding was comfortable and soft. However, kitchen cookware and facilities were in a poor state, cupboards and items in them very unclean relying on previous guests to clean up items. More of a shack than cottage. The water is supplied by tank so you feel you have to be miserly. We were unsure if it was fit for consumption as it came out of the tank with debris so boiled every drop we drank. The property fronts the beach which was lovely as was the wallabies who visited. If you stay here you have a 20 km drive after leaving the sealed main road on a mostly rough and narrow dirt road with no room for passing, as is common on the island... I would not bring my own car here again as it has been inundated with bull dust in every orifice. If coming here I would recommend staying at a location closer to adventure bay where you would be closer to main attractions. Not cheap for what it was and nowhere to eat at night unless driving a long way on dark, corrugated, unsealed roads with loose gravel.
