A private getaway just 30 minutes from downtown Hobart, with views over Oyster Cove to Bruny Island. Ideal for a peaceful family getaway, or a romantic retreat.

Stay in a modern architect-designed home that is very comfortably furnished and has everything you need provided. Every bedroom has picturesque views over the surrounding bushland and water, a built-in or walk-in robe and, most importantly, an incredibly comfortable bed to guarantee a wonderful night’s sleep. If you have a young family, we have a portacot, high chair, and baby bath.

The house has ducted heating with a separate fire, and the bathrooms have underfloor heating. In the summer, you can eat on the NE-facing deck outside table/benches and Weber BBQ provided, as well as separate chairs and sun lounger, and in the winter, in the large open-plan kitchen and dining area overlooking Oyster Cove. The well-appointed kitchen has quality appliances including induction cooktop, microwave, and a butler's pantry, and has plenty of utensils provided. And if you do need to get some work done, there’s a separate study.

There are some great places to eat and drink nearby, including on Bruny Island. The ferry wharf is a few minutes’ drive away. When you need supplies, the Oyster Cove Fruit & Vegetable and much more store is back on the main road, or you can drive a few minutes more into Kettering. For a full supermarket shop, the big supermarkets in Kingston are just 15 minutes away.

From the property, there are numerous local walking options. You'll often see wallabies and echidnas wandering around enjoying the peace and quiet. You can venture further afield using the two bikes provided as well… but you might be happiest just chilling out at the house.

Please do come and visit our little piece of tranquillity just half an hour from Hobart.
