Description

The Lighthouse on the Beach has been featured in numerous travel magazines and TV programs, and boasts the title of Tasmania's 1 holiday shack

Immerse yourself in complete relaxation as you sip cocktails on the deck and watch the sunset over the mountain. We have beach chairs and beach toys available for use and If you're feeling adventurous, take the canoe out and fish from the boat in the bay or hunt in the rockpools at the end of the beach

Positioned pride of place on Opossum Bay beach, on the waters edge, the property has three large bedrooms, two generous bathrooms, a large sun-filled open plan living space, full kitchen with dishwasher and all the amenities one would need for entertaining. If you want the WOW factor then look no further This is the venue for your next dream beach vacation

Get lost in the serenity, enjoying stunning sunsets on the deck with uninterrupted beach and mountain views, swim in the sheltered bay directly out the front or make the most of some of Tasmania's best surf beaches just minutes away. A perfect place for fishing, diving, boating, hiking, golfing and exploring or just curl up and read a book. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves lapping at the shore.

Double storey living, all three bedrooms are situated on the top level, including large ensuite in the Master bedroom. The master suite also offers direct access onto your very own, exceptionally large private deck overlooking the bay - a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning as you watch the waves lapping on the beach.

On the ground floor we have large open plan living space with flat screen TV and sound system and huge windows overlooking the bay.

The Lighthouse is the perfect spot to watch the SYD-HBA yacht race. Settle in and watch the spectacular yachts tack into the bay on the final leg of their journey to Hobart. Watch dolphins and seals exploring the bay from the comfort of your deck chair on the verandah. In the cooler months, watch out for whale tails For aurora hunters, auroras can be witnessed year round, with your chances increased if you book your stay around the equinox. Enquire for guiding services.

Book early for the summer as The Lighthouse is extremely popular from December to March and bookings fill early. All this within 40 minutes of Hobart CBD and 30 minutes from Hobart Airport make The Lighthouse in Opossum Bay an attractive destination for couple getaways, executives retreat, family holidays or simply to take time out.

The Opossum Bay Store is a stroll away stocking most supplies, including fuel, milk and bread. Hill St IGA supermarket is a short and pleasant 15 minute country drive away. If you're looking to dine out, there is a local RSL serving great meals each night, only minutes away.

Jetty and boat ramp is at the southern end of the bay and there is ample off street parking for cars and boat at The Lighthouse. There is a fabulous playground within walking distance of The Lighthouse for the younger kids.

If you're after a house with unique design, sunny aspect from every room, mountain views, gorgeous beach walks, jetty jumping, fishing from the canoe, golf course, surf beach nearby & BBQ facilities with both indoor & outdoor dining areas and, of course, serious WOW-factor, then look no further than The Lighthouse.

Guests can access the property by combination locked box on site and will have complete privacy during their stay at The Lighthouse. However, should you need any assistance during your stay, i am available on my mobile 24/7 and have a manager who lives minutes away.

Myself or my manager is always available if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lighthouse on the Beach at Opossum Bay We had a brilliant family holiday at The Lighthouse. We really enjoyed the house itself, its location right on the beach and the whole South Arm / Opossum Bay area. We would really recommend this property to other families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holiday on the beach with an element of fun We loved our 10 day stay at this Lighthouse shack on the beach where grandchildren joined us on the weekends. It is a charming and quirky 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with elements of surprise in every room. The kitchen is very well equipped with lovely serving dishes and we loved being able to light a fire one chilly night. There are three televisions, some great board games....and wonderful sunsets. The boatshed on the beach was great for our kayaks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Disappointing Experience The house is beautiful, with careful attention to detail along the nautical theme, from "treasure chest" wood boxes to lengths of rope framing doors and windows. However, sadly, the enjoyment of our stay was lessened by a very unfortunate experience with the owner. We had a quiet party on the beach in front of the house, with other families of young children like our own, and our elderly parents. In the middle of our lunch on the beach, the owner phoned in an irate state and talked of evicting my family from the Lighthouse without asking for any explanation of our activities. We happily offered to relocate our party further along the beach, which appeased the owner; however, we felt very uncomfortable for the remainder of our stay at the Lighthouse (four days), fearing our every move was continually being scrutinised. Despite the glorious weather and the stunningly beautiful location, we sadly did not have the relaxing beach holiday that we had dreamed about for months.
