Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic House for a Family Holiday! I am so glad we chose to stay at Opossum Bay Escape. The house itself is in a fantastic location, opposite the village shop and wonderful views across the river. It is ideal for families with comfortable inside and outside space and close to a beautiful swimming beach and play park. The rooms were all tidy and comfortable, fabulous modern kitchen and lovely to have the added bonus of 2 bathrooms in the property. Owners were so attentive the outside table on the magnificent deck (which I may add has a gate to stop the little ones escaping onto the road!) got broken the week before and they came over to replace it at the beginning of our stay. We were also travelling with family that were over from the UK and the owners went out of their way to assist with the baby requirements. Even when our flight was delayed on our day of departure they allowed us to stay on in the property to allow the babies to have their morning sleep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing Beach Holiday The house was perfect for our needs. Kitchen and main bathroom are fantastic. It was lovely to sit on the deck and watch life on the river go by. We watched the winners of the Sydney to Hobart sail in. Great fenced yard & playground across the road for the kids.
