After 5 nights sleeping in a campervan with an temperatures near freezing, wind and rain we stayed in the tree house. What a wonderful home. Fire place and aircon, full kitchen, comfortable bed, magnificent views and so easy to book in to. Wish we could stay longer!
My family booked an overnight stay at The Treehouse through Tripadvisor. Confirmation of our stay came through quickly, and information on how to get there and how to get in on arrival followed after.
Bruny Island itself is a beautiful, natural part of the world. On arrival to the island we stopped at a few local attractions before heading to The Treehouse to check in. The only issue we had was finding the right road, as the road it went off was named something different to the information we received, that was ok though, we just turned back and found our way. The property has lovely views across the water, and there are many quirky things to discover around both the house and the surrounding land. My son loved the mezzanine bedroom, and also took advantage of the guitar, strumming it out on the balcony. My husband headed off to the jetty to fish, and we all ate dinner at the Bruny Hotel, which we had pre booked. The meals there were beautiful and very filling! We bought our own breakfast with us so cooked that in the house looking out at the wallabies that turned up in the front yard.
A very relaxing break. Other family members also stayed on Bruny and they said they'd wished they had booked The Treehouse too.
We absolutely loved our 2 nights at the Tree House and were sad to leave. The views from anywhere inside and from the 3 balconies were stunning. The house had a lovely, roomy open plan design downstairs and a large upstairs bedroom. Every possible traveller's need had been thought of and catered for and there was a very generous supply of every type of cooking essential. It was quite cold during our stay, but the reverse-cycle air-con worked well, but we much preferred to use the fire (efficient, smoke-free).
It is hard to find negatives and they are only minor but; the upstairs bedroom is accessed via a steep, narrow staircase (taken from an old ship). I had no problems with this, although at188cm, I did manage to hit my head a couple of times. I thought it added extra character to the house but I think people should be aware that but it might not be suitable for some. Also the driveway was quite long, steep and consisted of dirt and rocks. Our small 2wd had no problems but not sure what would happen if there were a lot of rain.
We have stayed at many places here and OS over the last few years and the Tree House is up there with our absolute favourites.

My husband and I had a lovely stay at The Tree House in Alonnah on Bruny Island. It is the perfect location from which to explore the island. The ocean views from all sides of the house were amazing. The the house was very comfortable and the kitchen was easy to use. We did stop in Kettering and got our groceries before we got on the ferry but did find a bottle shop in the town. We had plenty of wild visitors on the property to keep us entertained as we sat on the decks that surround the house. We were sad to leave. This was are first VRBO and the owner was very responsive by email.
An unexpected night on Bruny was capped off by staying at this tranquil property. From first contact with the quest host we found communication/directions clear, precise & easy to follow. 180 degree views of the bay, cosy fire, sheltered decks.
Highly recommend early wake up for spotting wild life. We counted 7 wallabies in the front yard.
You'll feel like you're staying at a friends house, enjoy.
