Soak up the atmosphere from the balcony, a perfect place to relax enjoying a meal of freshly caught fish cooked on the bbq as you watch the last rays of the sun disappearing behind the distant hills.

Opossum Bay on the Beach is perfect for a romantic getaway in the colder months with the wood fired heater blazing. The beach is often so quiet you’re only sharing it with the local birdlife, and maybe a pod of dolphins.

But if you’re looking for action bring your fishing gear, walking shoes, bikes, wetsuits, body boards, kayaks, surfboards, and your boat, which can be secured to the private mooring in front of the cottage. Just 100 metres from the cottage is a park with a lovely new colourful children's adventure playground.

Opossum Bay is an easy 35 minute drive from central Hobart and 30 minutes from the airport and is well catered for by the local shop, 2 minutes away. There is a large IGA store in Lauderdale which you must drive past 20 minutes before Opossum Bay which carries a vast range of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood etc.

There is a 9 hole Golf Course at the RSL Club at South Arm, a 5 minute drive away serving meals 7 nights a week. There is also a pharmacy at South Arm and a tennis court available.

This property has a definitely NO parties policy.
All breakages, damage, theft and loss are the responsibility of the guest during their stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paradise A beautiful little beach shack. We stayed in May and it was so quiet - true relaxation. The log fire makes it very cozy. The sun-room is a great place to snuggle up with a book or drift off to sleep. Most of our time was spent on the deck looking at the view - breathtaking, a writers paradise. I would suggest if you don't have a car to grab your alcoholic beverages before you arrive. 25 kms to the nearest bottleshop is an expensive bottle of wine. I thought it may have had a bath...but with everything else being such perfection, it didn't matter much.
