'Arm End is a significant strategic property of regional and state significance, and is noted for its pristine coastline and magnificent views of the Derwent River, Hobart and Mt Wellington. Other site features include a number of sandy beaches, Aboriginal middens, a fossil area, four rare native grasses and an historic grave'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful escape! The house provided a wonderful and relaxing space for us to enjoy a few days away - there was plenty of room for our group of 8 adults. We spent the days walking, reading, relaxing and cooking! The house, its kitchen and surrounds has everything you would want or need for. The beachfront is mesmorising and neighbouring headland for walking is just magnificent! As the other reviewers point out, buy your groceries and don't leave until you have too! Thanks Frances for being a wonderful host.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has this house been all our lives? After being welcomed with a list of do's instead of do nots, a bottle of local sparkling and easter eggs, we settled down to relaxing. With a large group, we never once felt under each others feet and the kitchen is set for entertaining. View is amazing, beds are super comfortable and we are all trying to work out how to get back here again. It's a bit far from most things, but that is the charm. Settle in and don't leave.
