Parnella Adventure Bay … super

Thank you for providing such a clean, comfortable, cosy house for us to stay in. We walked the Labillardiere Peninsula, ate spectacular seafood at the Hotel Bruny and saw penguins at the rookery on the Neck. The rangers at the rookery were trying to explain to other visitors where to find albino wallabies. We felt very smug knowing they were just in the garden at Parnella. We will definitely be coming back next time we are down this way.

Parnella Adventure Bay … stress buster

Dear Jonathan and Sue. Thank you. After spending a week at Parnella, a whole year’s worth of ‘Sydney stress’ has just melted away. The cottage was just perfect. We have never seen so much wildlife whilst seated on the sofa. Bruny is just beautiful and coming back each day after exploring the island was lovely. Our son took great delight in feeding the sheep and saying hello to the endless wallabies and birds.

Thanks again.

Parnella Kettering – “Great spot”

We stayed in the 1 bedroom Bloomsbury Cottage. It was lovely. It is in a quiet spot not far from the main road and an easy commute to Hobart 20-30 min. and a short drive 5-10 min from the Bruny Island Ferry. The bed was super comfy, the heater was warm and the bathroom big, modern and clean. A nice touch was a knee rug for extra cosiness. Would definitely stay again and will recommend to anyone traveling in this area.


Parnella Kettering – “Blissful couples retreat.”

My bride and I stayed for 3 nights in Parnella Kettering’s “Bloomsbury Cottage”…absolute bliss. Sue and Jon ? Take a bow. Your service is excellent. Great bed …soft pillows…large fluffy white towels…( there were 2 spare towels as well!!) and self catering was a breeze due to some thought being applied to the provision of an extensive range of utensils…as well as a BBQ which was clean and in working condition. All of the wish boxes are ticked here!! delightful sunny deck …absolutely private without being isolated … and there’s more !! We stayed in 14 locations over Tasmania in 52 days and our yardstick was simple…”would we stay there ever again?”
Emphatically ” Yes”
