The Tree house is a beautiful, unforgettable place to stay. Very unique, award winning views, but one major drawback.

On The Tree House website, the property is advertised as two bedrooms. Nowhere is it mentioned that the house is two story, although I gathered this from the pictures. This was fine, as I was travelling with my mother & could help her up the stairs if necessary.

We arrived at the house very excited to see what was waiting for us. We walked in & I was horrified to see the stairs, which I would mote

“Excellent beach house with wonderful views”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We booked The Tree House on Bruny Island as we were looking for somewhere quiet for a relaxing break. The Tree House was ideal as it ticked all of our boxes - water views, balconies to enjoy some sunshine/reading, a quiet spot far enough from the next house, a woodfire and DVD player for when it turned cold, a handy location to get to beaches/forest walks etc.
It wasn't quite beach weather during our stay but that didn't matter as we were very content to enjoy time on the sheltered balconies or inside staring out at the amazing views of the channel through the native bushland. It really felt like a home away from home with a fully-equipped kitchen, BBQ, comfortable leather sofas etc.
Before our arrival, we received an email from Rob with helpful suggestions about the house, where to dine out, suggested walks etc, which was very useful. I'd certainly recommend The Tree House to anyone looking for a great standard of accommodation at a reasonable price on Bruny. I know we're hoping to book again soon.

“Stunning views, beautifully appointed”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This place is special. We stayed for our 30th wedding anniversary and it was perfect. The views from the huge windows in every room were lovely. It was peaceful, secluded, comfortable and had everything that opened and shut in terms of heating, cooling, cooking, entertainment. It was great to find a cupboard full of sauces and condiments and basic needs such as oil and pasta. We stocked up on beautiful smoked goods, cheeses, artisan bread and ate like kings but we also only had to drive 3 mins to a great pub. the only slight drawback is if you have more than two people the stairs to the loft are very steep.

“Amazing views”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The Tree House is a cosy, warm and comfortable home, but being a group of 60 yr olds, we were unprepared for both, the very steep stairwell and the loft bedroom . Other than this, the amazing views of the DÉntrecastreaux Channel make it worth the climb. On a domestic note I would remove the opened bottles of pantry items and replace with new catering packs for each visitor. (There is now way I would use opened or anyone else' pantry items.). Thanks for a lovely stay.

“Comfort & luxury away from it all”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed at The Tree House for 2 nights & used it as a base from which to explore Bruny Island. Loved the kitchen (especially the coffee machine!), comfy bed & couches and also the fire which we used on a particularly chilly January night! Nice walk down to the pub for yummy oysters & beer, and a welcome warm shower after a chilly adventure on the yellow boats the next day too. We really appreciated all the small details that had been thought of - well-equipped kitchen, washing machine, outdoor seating, etc.

Also a tip for those not from Tassie - we took our recyclables with us and were able to drop them off for free at the waste transfer station in Margate on the way back to Hobart. Nice to save some things from landfill!

“Delightful rustic house on bush block with great ocean views”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Located on a large bush block filled with native trees, natural rocks and a created garden, the Tree House attracts many native birds and macropods. The bush and ocean views can be enjoyed from everywhere in the house through extensive windows, one of the three outdoor verandas or outside in the garden itself in various seating areas. This was the main attraction for me.

The house has two sleeping spaces rather than bedrooms. Downstairs, the wall-less 'bedroom' flows seamlessly from the living area. Up a steep ladder is a second queen-sized sleeping area in a type of mezannine area with full sized glassed areas showcasing the ocean and bush views. There is a generous supply of linen, bedding and towels.

Downstairs, the house is in a cross shape. The wall-less 'bedroom' is at one end, the kitchen at the other, and in between the fireplace and dining room. At the other ends of the 'cross' is the lounge room and the entrance and bathroom.

The kitchen is generously supplied with crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils as well as a four burner stove, medium sized refigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. The cupboards stock handy items such as a teapot, coffee plunger and condiments.

The bathroom has a shower, toilet, vanity and attractive ship-themed leadlight window.

The key is well located in a key lock. It gave immediate access to the house but I've experienced more 'user-friendly' key locks.

We stayed for five nights. I enjoyed staying here and would stay again.
