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.

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 Perfect Perfect for those in need of some R&R ! Couldn't help but relax with the stunning views, sounds of the waves and the ever changing scenery due to the weather. House is well equipped and comfy, the spiral stairs may be tricky for elderly or mobility impaired but other than that this place is the perfect haven. Highly recommend the iron pot cafe at South Arm for a homemade cake or 3 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous views Extremely clean and well-kept, with sensational views; we thought we were abroad a cruise-ship with the property right on the sand of the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a position! What an amazing place - I loved that I could watch the kids playing on the beach from a choice of balconies/level outdoor areas, the decor was beautifully fresh and beachy but still relaxed enough that it was family friendly. Heating coped well with the spring gales coming off the water, my only reservation is that the tight spiral staircase inside might not suit all visitors, but for us it was fine. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to get away from it all, the park and multiple beaches make it perfect for families

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic We loved our stay. The views were magnificent and the sounds of the waves while you try to sleep and when you wake up makes you feel like you are in heaven. The sand and the water is your very own backyard. Love it! Love it! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a little slice of paradise We spent four days and three nights in this lovely beachfront property. Although it was mid-winter, the weather was lovely and the two balconies were perfect little sun traps. My sister and I just adored staying in this perfect little house. The kitchen was well laid out with modern appliances including a dishwasher; the bathroom was modern and well-equipped (including hairdryer with diffuser); the heating worked well so we were cosy when the sun went down; the nights were quiet and we slept really well. As well as Opossum Beach, there are two other beaches within a five minute walk - Mitchell's Beach and Shelley Beach. A further 10 minute walk will bring you to Glenvar Beach, which is much longer and great for a stroll. I stupidly locked us out of the house one afternoon and called the owners who were most helpful and had their cleaner come and let us in within just a few minutes. The local shop is about a minute's walk away and as well as all the basics they do fish and chips! We didn't partake this time but will definitely do so again. The only tiny little thing I can think of was that the second bedroom doesn't have any electric plugs (or none that I could find). As one of us has a CPAP machine and the other was on call overnight, we both had the need to plug things in near the bed and you couldn't do that in that second bedroom. We got around it, but it's just something to keep in mind if like us there was a genuine need. This house has become our new go-to place in Tasmania and we can't wait to visit again.
