Situated in glorious southern Tasmania, South Arm is a small beach-side community about a 40 minute drive from Hobart or a 35 minute drive from Hobart airport. Surrounded by beaches, it's the ideal place for your holiday getaway.

With a fully fenced yard, we are pet friendly. Advance notice that you are bringing your pet is required.

South Arm has a general store, an RSL club, a golf course, a café and a pharmacy. The closest beach is approximately 100 metres from the house and the main South Arm Beach is about 500-600 metres.

Discounts may apply for stays of four nights or more, depending on the number of people and season - please contact the owner for further information.

Please note that this property is not serviced until after your departure. For longer stays additional towels and sheet sets will be provided at time of arrival. A washing machine is available for your use along with a clothes dryer, an outdoor clothesline and several indoor clothes airers.

About the house

South Arm Escape holiday accommodation is a fully equipped two bedroom, two bathroom home, sleeping up to six people.

The house is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac and it enjoys lovely views of the Derwent River, Mount Wellington and the Alum Cliffs.

The lounge room, kitchen and main bedroom with en-suite are upstairs. The main bedroom has a queen size bed.

Downstairs is the second bedroom which has a double bed. A walk-in robe links this bedroom to the downstairs bathroom.

The rumpus room is set up with two single beds. This room has a sliding glass door leading to the back yard and laundry facilities are hidden away in the cupboard.

The rumpus room also has direct access to the downstairs bathroom.

There is plenty of easy access to undercover parking for your car and boat.

A lovely sheltered beach is just a short 100 metre walk away. The main South Arm beach and the South Arm General Store is only an eight minute walk away along a pretty coastal track.

There is no smoking in the house.

For your pets

All dogs are welcome at South Arm Escape. The backyard is large and is fully fenced and there is easy access to the yard via the gate at the rear of the carport.

If your dog is an outside dog then he/she is welcome to use the medium-sized dog kennel provided. Just BYO some dog blankets.

If your dog is well behaved then he/she is very welcome inside the house as well. A medium-sized trampoline bed is available for use and can be moved to whichever room you prefer. Again, just BYO some dog blankets.

Dog water and food bowls are provided.

Around South Arm

The main South Arm beach is about a 6 minute walk from house. This beach is also about 2 kilometres long so your pet can get plenty of exercise. It is an off-lead beach but in summer the hours are restricted to before 10:00am and after 6:00pm.

Across the road from the house and down a short gravel path you will find yourself on a lovely smaller beach, perfect for swimming and dogs. This beach is off-lead at all times.

About a ten minute walk in the other direction is the lovely Fort Beach. This beach is also great for swimming and is off-lead at all times.

Dog Rules are Simple

- Dogs are not allowed on the couches or the beds

- Please pickup after your dog - cleanup bags are provided

- Please do not leave your dogs for extended periods. They can get anxious and stressed and excessive barking can annoy our wonderful neighbours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic holiday home. We had 3 nights in this wonderful holiday home and intend to return for a longer stay inJanuary. We were delighted to find that the accommodation was very clean, tidy and uncluttered. Loads of room for everyone's things. The kitchen was well appointed, with absolutely everything we needed for a very comfortable, enjoyable break. There were 4 of us (mum, dad and grown up 'kids') and 2 dogs (very much part of the family) and we all had a very lovely time. The backyard is great for the dogs. It's a beautiful spot with many beaches that are dog friendly, which is very important!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect beach escape! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had a great week. It was winter and it did rain but we had a fantastic time. We walked on the nearby beaches every day with our dogs (they were in puppy paradise - the beach was literally across the road!!), we read books, watched some the dvds and did some of the puzzles provided (great idea). We drove 5 mins to Opossum Bay and had another lovely walk - loads of star fish to look at. The house is brilliant, loads of stuff in the kitchen (even glad wrap and freezer bags, instant coffee and tea bags, etc.), we used the washing machine (powder provided) and dryer and the clothes airer. There were a million extra pillows and blankets and heaters upstairs and downstairs - we were very comfortable. Sitting out on the balcony was amazing and it was so peaceful and serene. My only recommendation to people staying here is to get some groceries delivered as the local shop is ridiculously overpriced. I got some basics on our first day and spent over $80 so I got coles to deliver groceries the next day and we lived on those all week. Thanks for a great holiday - your house and the set up is perfect!!! Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Holiday home! My family just returned from a lovely weekend at South Arm Escape. The house and location are perfect! The house had everything we needed and the beds where super comfortable – we all had great sleeps there. The deck was a great spot to enjoy the water view and relax. There are very close beaches and a park that the kids enjoyed all within a few minutes’ walk. Highly recommend - we can’t wait to return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pet friendly paradise Had a wonderfully relaxing stay over the ANZAC weekend. The house is incredibly well equipped, modern, clean and comfortable and located in a lovely part of Tassie- such stunning views from South Arm back across the Channel! My pooches couldn't believe their luck at having so many dog friendly beaches to run free on in such close proximity. And I was very appreciative that such a genuinely pet friendly place existed for such a reasonable price- a secure backyard and dogs allowed to sleep inside just as they do at home! Highly recommend South Arm escape for a relaxing get away!
