Lo spazio
Firetail Bush Retreat is named in honour of one of the many bird species here - "Beautiful Firetails." It is a fully self-contained cottage which includes a large lounge and sunny king size bedroom (overlooking the surrounding hills). It has a cosy log fire, large parking area, private deck off the bedroom, outdoor BBQ, TV and ipod dock, books and magazines, movies and games, WiFi internet access and your own kitchen and bathroom. Couples and singles only - we do not accommodate babies, children, pets or additional guests sorry.

Sip a glass of Tassie pinot noir fireside or on your private deck, listen to the owls, watch the wildlife bounce past and count the stars. You have your own private entrance which is accessed via stairs off the carpark.

The listing is on 6 acres of bush, with abundant wildlife and your rustic but very comfortable cottage is built to a traditional Aussie bush theme (stone, iron and wood). The bathroom has a shower over the bath, toilet, vanity and a washing machine.

There are various options if your prefer to eat out, including pub meals at the Oyster Cove Marina (bookings suggested during Covid19, no meals on Sunday nights), Bruny Island Gateway Cafe at the ferry terminal, Steamhouse Cafe, or go to the local sheep cheesery (Grandvewe) and cook yourselves up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen (basic condiments provided - salt/pepper/milk/oil, etc). Alternatively it's only 10mins drive south to the award winning Peppermint Bay for drinks/meals on the waterfront in nearby Woodbridge (check hours). The townships of Kingston, Cygnet and Huonville are only a short drive and there is also a local store with basic groceries and fuel at the end of our road and a small grocer at oyster cove (typically open until around 7pm). Kettering is rural however (ie. no supermarkets) so be sure to pick up your supplies on your way down. There is an IGA supermarket at Snug and Kingston has several large supermarkets.

Local attractions:
- Bruny Island (beaches, cheese, berries, bushwalking, kayaking, boating, oysters, chocolate, cafes, art, wildlife (penguins, seabirds, white wallabies, seals, etc))
- Boutique local wineries
- Local markets with handmade items and produce.
- Local gourmet chocolatier
- Snug falls bushwalk
- Alum cliffs track (starts at Kingston Beach at the mouth of Browns River)
- Antiques and collectables at The Margate Train
- Fishing and diving
- Country drives to quaint towns (eg. Cygnet, with its exeptional cafe fare and interesting shops)
- 35 mins to Hobart - Salamanca markets (saturdays), Farmers market (Sundays), Mt Wellington, MONA (Museum of Old and New Art)
- Bird watching and bushwalking
- Relaxation
- Golf

Firetail is situated in the hills of Kettering, 35mins south of Hobart down the D'Entrecasteux Channel and about 2kms off the main Channel Hwy (where there is a bus stop taking you into Hobart. It is a pleasant but longish walk from the house). Kettering is what you might call comfortable bush living, with a large marina down the road and is the jumping off point for gourmet and beach travelling on Bruny Island.

Golfing guests with your own clubs - there is a very well maintained and scenic (overlooking North West Bay) 18 hole golf course only 15 mins drive away. For public access times check with North West Bay Golf Club.

Accesso per gli ospiti
Your residence is attached to the rear of our house via a short, locked hallway but is very private. As well as having your own separate entrance (up the black stairs from the carpark), you are more than welcome to explore our bush block other than our own private yard (which is steep to walk around but has great mountain views, including distant Mount Wellington). For your own safety, please keep away from the dams - they are only for fire-fighting and wallaby refreshment :-) not for swimming. We are on rainwater - (much nicer than town water), so please be sensible with your water use. Our own fenced private yard is not accessible to guests.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
There are stairs up to the cottage - something to consider if you have mobility issues. Also, we are a singles/couples accommodation and not set up for children, pets or extra guests sorry. The heating is a wood burner fireplace - happy to talk you through safe and effective use of the fire, but if you don’t think you can manage the fire, this may not be the listing for you.

Hi there, we are Damien and Sonia: A true Tasmanian and a Victorian import, who live on 6 acres of beautiful bushland in Kettering in Southern Tasmania (about 35mins south of Hobart) with our great dane, Jack. Damien can often be found at Margate making cappuccinos out of his coffee trailer and Sonia is a paramedic and part-time artist, jeweller and children's book author. We have an AirBNB self contained cottage attached to the back of our house (Firetail Bush Retreat). We have spent varying amounts of time travelling overseas and within Australia and both feel it's better to stay with a local, rather than in a sterile hotel room where possible, so we stay Airbnb whenever we can. Sonia's favourite destinations are Iceland, Switzerland and Nepal so far and Damien loves the Maldives and New Zealand. We have a bit of a love affair with food and wine and enjoy bushwalking and seeing this wonderful state of ours, so we're more than happy to point guests in the right direction there. Whilst we are very keen to ensure you have everything you need for a comfortable stay, we also of course fully respect your privacy whilst you're here so will leave you entirely to your own devices if that's your preference. Our house is about 2kms off the main road where you will find the ferry to beautiful Bruny Island (for foodies: think oysters, berries, Australia's most southerly vineyard etc where they do great food, organic/smoked/free-range meats and fish, award winning cheese … oh, and endless deserted beaches) plus there's a few cafes, the pub overlooking the marina and the best chocolate shop I've found - don't miss out on Nutpatch if you're visiting. Anyway, we look forward to meeting you somewhere out there in AirBNB land …. at your place or ours :-)
