“This is the best place to stay just outside Hobart. What a stunning place with a jaw dropping view of opposum bay. Gai is so warm and welcoming and makes you feel at home instantly. The cozy cottage had everything we could need. Don't think twice before you book this place. Lot of bioluminescence in the areas nearby.”
Set in the heart of picturesque Opossum Bay with 180 degree water views, this charming and freshly renovated beach house is the ideal holiday retreat. Soak up the sunshine on the generous deck or enjoy the renowned Opossum Bay beach with easy beach access stairs directly in front. Savor stunning water and mountain views from the master suite and dining area or cosy up beside the warm and ambient fireplace on cooler days.
“Enjoyed a relaxing break over Christmas at Opossum Bay. Location of the house is excellent with easy access to the beach. House was comfortable and very well equipped with lovely views out over the water. Melody was very easy to deal with and always quick to respond. Would love to return one day.”
Situated in Kingston Beach just a 15 minute drive from the city of Hobart with a 5 -10 minute walk to the beach and local cafes and restaurants. There are various walking tracks along the water. It is in a quiet area over looking Mount Wellington and Kingston Beach with views over the River Derwent including South Arm and Opossum Bay. Kingston is the gateway to the Huon Valley and Bruny Island a 25-30 minute drive.
“The place was very clean. It's a short walk to a beautiful view of the ocean and the view of the sunrise from the windows were amazing. It was thoughtful for the hosts to provide us with bottled water and a simple breakfast - bread, peanut butter spread, and milk. Communication with the hosts were also fast and clear. Would definitely recommend this place!”
