'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 The ultimate beach house A real treasure - reminiscent of coastal Massachusetts or The Hamptons. A relaxed, stylish and spacious beach house, extremely comfortable and well equipped.Light and airy bedrooms,smart bathrooms and plenty of outdoor areas for drinks and dining. But the pictures tell the story! Far exceeded our expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb house! A group of friends and I absolutely loved our stay at Saltcotes. The house is gorgeous, well appointed with everything you could need (and more) and has lots of room for people to interact or be in separate places. The location is stunning, the views are to-die-for and there are wonderful rambles to be had right on the doorstep. Frances was easy to contact and welcoming and even extended a late check out to our group. Thoroughly recommend Saltcotes, it's exceptional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect place to rest and rejuvinate What a remarkable find. A property we will return to. Saltcotes had everything we wanted and perfect for two families for an 8-day stay. We loved the fire, the pool table, board games, kayaks, fishing rods, herb garden and everything you need and want in the kitchen. Two fridges enabled us to buy up big at Hillstore (recommended by Frances and an absolute must for your groceries). With three bathrooms there were never any issues. So many magazines and great books to read. the outdoor lounges were a perfect way to laze the afternoon away enjoying the magnificent water views. Saltcotes is the pick of properties in Opossum Bay. With neighbours a good distance away we felt secluded and private but at the same time only a few minutes walk to the little shop. There were lots of life-vests to choose from and three kayaks enabling 4 people on the water at any one time.Hobart is less than 40 mins away, so quite easy to get to as are the wineries. Thank you Frances and family for sharing your piece of paradise. You were the perfect hosts.
