Activities - summer or winter, beachbreak is the ultimate beach holiday!

beachbreak is located in a unique part of Tasmania. Absolute waterfront location means you literally walk out the door and onto the sand. Fishing, diving, surfing, walks along the beach are right at your door, as well as the most spectacular sunset views over the Derwent River.

The proposed Arm End Golf precinct at Opossum Bay is within view and just a short stroll from beachbreak. This makes beachbreak a very attractive stay for golf getaways and we are excited to offer golf accommodation packages in the future. The 18 hole course is expected to be completed in 2016. Another nearby 9 hole course at South Arm is a short 10 minute drive.

With Hobart just a 40 minute drive away there are an abundance of activities available all within close proximity to beachbreak. Port Arthur, MONA, Mount Wellington, Bruny Island, fast ferry cruises and tours are all easy day trips. With plenty on offer you can do as much or as little as you like. In fact you will most likely prefer just to stay at home and enjoy the view and relaxation beachbreak offers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yet another lovely visit beachbreak is our favourite winter break destination in Tasmania. We recently enjoyed another sensational long weekend at the house, staring out at the beautiful view. The property is scrupulously clean, very well presented, nicely stocked with utensils, herbs and spices in the kitchen. There is an electric hob and oven, as well as a microwave and large toaster. The heating works well in the winter so it's a lovely cosy place to stay with all the windows providing plenty of natural light. One bedroom upstairs (where you would put the kids if you brought them) and one downstairs. The upstairs bedroom has a walk down a spiral staircase to the toilet and bathroom, and is right beside the living area so possibly not great if somebody needs to go to bed early and is a light sleeper. We had no such problem! You hardly need a car once you get there (and in fact you can get there on the public bus) as there are miles of walking trails, four beaches and a shop within close walking distance - so we never leave the neighbourhood. The shop does a bit of fast food including fish and chips some nights, which is a great option. If you want to get out a bit further, the rest of the peninsula is spectacular including Cremorne Beach, Clifton Beach and Hope Beach. And the drive back to Hobart is around 45 minutes if you really want to hit MONA or Salamanca Market. Chris and Jane were kind enough to arrange a late checkout for us, so we were able to relax on our last day right up till it was time to leave.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantanstic views! This was our first trip to Hobart with our friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the location, all reviews were accurate. We loved the place, although, the narrow staircase was a challenge to get up and down. Our only gripe, you are expected to clean, vaccum, mop and strip the beds, wash beach towels etc. otherwise you will lose some of your bond. This should have been clearly noted on the stayz site for all to make an informed decision. When I chose to go on holidays, that's what I should be doing, holidaying, not cleaning up a house for the next rental. What we paid per night, one would think that cleaning was factored into the rate. Otherwise, it's a lovely house, with awesome views.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Property on the Bay We had an absolutely fantastic stay at this property. Great for a family get away. Not too far out of the city and the beachfront location is just phenomenal. Great child friendly beach with lots of beachcombing adventures. Great also for kayaking and fishing. All fittings and fixture at this property, including appliances and linen are top quality. A great renovation has been done on this property by someone who really has an eye for detail. Would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting a nights get away or a week away with a family. Loved it.
