Opossum Bay is located on the Derwent River, just 40 minutes drive from the centre of Hobart

"Seaside Retreat' is a reminder of happy beach holidays from our childhood days, an echo from a less complicated and stress-free time of our lives which we might want to re-capture or to share with our own children. Open the door, cross the small roadway, down the path and onto pristine sand lapped by crystal-clear water, this place offers a haven from the pace of 21st century living. The beach is dotted with properties oh, the reminders of Amalfi are present here, too, families with young children enjoying the day and often, small boats bobbing about on the river.

The shack itself has a true, happy holiday feel, with fresh bright linen, comfortable beds there are views out each of the three bedroom windows and a kitchen in which you can prepare or not a meal consisting of tasty Tasmanian produce accompanied by a fine Tasmanian wine. Who cares if the toilet is just outside the house? It, too, is totally adequate a flush loo and clean, yet another reminder of days of yesteryear.

You can stroll to the local shop, or enjoy two alternative and lovely beaches, just a short walk from your position adjacent to the main beach. Or perhaps, a spot of fishing from the jetty, anyone? you will need to bring a rod or line just throw it in the back of the car, in case

If this is the kind of relaxation you are looking for, then 'Seaside Retreat' will be just your cup of tea.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely House Simple but beautiful. The environment, both inside and outside there is lovely. The house is clean and tidy too. The bad thing is, the toilet is at the back of the shack. Anyway it doesn't affect us much. But if it is winter, then it may be a consideration.
