Swallows Rest is a treasured little family beach cottage nestled across the road from Captain Cook Creek and the main beach at Adventure Bay.
It is light and cosy and full of character. The perfect place to get away from it all.

The space
Perfectly cosy for a couple but flexible enough to accommodate two families it is the perfect beach retreat.

There is a queen bed in one bedroom and a double bed in a second bedroom. There is space for 4 children in the third bedroom. This third bedroom has one low standing bunk, one single bed and a trundle but given the proportions of the room is really only suitable for kids. Not recommended for adults.
We can also provide a portacot for an infant if required.

We have a canoe and life jackets that you are welcome to take for a paddle up the river or out in the bay.

We also have tennis racquets (the tennis court is just near the shops) and many yard games to keep everyone entertained.

We have a TV and DVD player along with board games and books for those days that see you indoors.

We'd love to welcome your furry friend and we have a fully fenced yard. We ask that you respect the native wildlife and stay clear of bird nesting areas on the beach. We also ask that your pooch stays outside when possible. There is an undercover deck and a shed that can be accessed via a dog door for them to sleep. Please clean up the yard of droppings when you leave.

Other things to note
We are on tank water and therefore rely on rainwater for all our water needs. We ask that you keep showers short and don't leave taps running. It is pristine Bruny Island rainwater and is safe for drinking.

Phone reception is quite patchy on Bruny Island but is actually pretty good at our cottage with Telstra.

Location

Adventure Bay, Tasmania, Australia

Adventure Bay is rich in history and is now booming with things to do for the holiday maker.
It is a safe and friendly neighbourhood.

There is a well stocked shop, a cafe, a berry farm, chocolate company and the award winning Pennicot Wilderness Cruise and seafood restaurant.

For those who like a bit of action there is a tennis court, swimming, surfing or walks including spectacular Fluted Cape. You could paddle the canoe along the river or fish for squid off the jetty.

There is an abundance of local wildlife including the rare white wallabies (easily spotted at dusk over our back fence) or night trips to see the little penguins at The Neck.

Or you could just relax and read a book in the hammock.

Be sure to try the many gourmet offerings of Bruny Island including the Bruny Island House of Whisky, cheese, bread and beer at the Bruny Island Cheese Company, Get Shucked Oysters, Bruny Island Premium Wines plus many more.

I am a mum, a wife, a jeweller and a designer of spaces. My family is so important to me and we thrive on adventures to far off places having amazing experiences and creating wonderful memories. We have had some great times overseas with airbnb, most recently in Sri Lanka, and those stays absolutely made our trip. I hope to be able to do that for others when they stay on our beautiful little island. We don't live full time on Bruny but cast our eyes across it from our home on "the mainland" every day as we have our morning coffee. Having always dreamed of one day owning a property on Bruny Island we have managed to find ourselves a little slice of heaven and we are so keen to share it. I dream ahead years, picturing our kids and friends spending carefree summers swimming, fishing and kayaking or just beachcombing, rugged up with beanies and big jackets, on a wild and blustery winters day. This is what it is all about! We love it and hope that you will too.
