Soak up the atmosphere from the balcony, a perfect place to relax enjoying a meal of freshly caught fish cooked on one of the 2 barbecues as you watch the last rays of the sun disappearing behind the distant hills.
Our cottage is located on the banks of the Derwent River on Opossum Bay Beach, a beautiful clean sandy beach and a perfect destination for a holiday. Children and adults alike love swimming here, it is extremely safe with no large waves or under tow, however if you are looking for surf beaches there are 2 within a short drive.
Opossum Bay on the Beach is perfect for a romantic getaway in the colder months with the wood fired heater blazing, we provide firewood for the first night and can organise extra on request. 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.
The cottage has off street parking with level access to the front door.
The main bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed from which you can watch the every changing river and the boats going by, and the second bedroom has a sturdy but comfortable wooden base bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single on the top.
There is a baby bath and portable cot provided.
Opossum Bay is an easy 40 minute drive from central Hobart and 30 minutes from the airport. There is a local shop 2 minutes away and an excellent IGA store in Lauderdale which you must drive past 20 minutes before Opossum Bay, it carries an extensive range of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood etc.
We provide a variety of teas, a nespresso coffee maker (byo pods), hand and shower wash, shampoo, kitchen and washing machine detergent.
There is a 9 hole Golf Course at the RSL Club at South Arm, a 5 minute drive away which serves meals 7 nights a week. There is also a pharmacy, a local store and a café at South Arm and a tennis court available for hire.
