The proposed Arm End Golf precinct at Opossum Bay is within view and just a short stroll from beachbreak.

Another nearby 9 hole course at South Arm is a short 10 minute drive.

In fact you will most likely prefer just to stay at home and enjoy the view and relaxation beachbreak offers!

About Chris

beachbreak has been owned by one family for over 40 years. What used to be known as 'the shack', has been transformed into a delightful and cozy beach house suitable for holidays all year, summer or winter. Chris and Jane are siblings and the property is now shared between their young families.

Chris purchased this House in 2007

Why Chris chose Opossum Bay

beachbreak is incredibly unique. Located right on the beach with the most amazing water and mountain views and in a quiet seaside village, it's a place where you can wind down and totally forget that you are still within 35 minutes of a capital city!

What makes this House unique

It's not often you are able to stay in your very own comfortable beach house located right next to the water and sand!

                                                                I had a great couple of nights with my daughter and grandchildren at your fabulous "beachbreak'. You really feel you can reach out and touch the water and we were blessed with good weather so swimming and exploring rock pools were a must. My only suggestion as a fussy grandma is a dustpan and brush for both upstairs and down to keep up with sand and inevitable crumbs - despite the bucket of water and towelling down that sand just creeps in! We have some beautiful photos to share with the rest of the family.

                                                                With thanks

                                                                Nice to stay...

                                                                Right on the beach you hear the sound of the waves and see the tide... The house has everything, maybe except wifi, you need to stay. Easy to contact the owner, Chris don't let you down in case. Nice sleepy village and smal market store with cheepest fuel. If back in Tasmania the beachbreak should be a must! The shower in the bathroom has a little low pressier... but who cares!

                                                                We loved our winter getaway, the house is located right on the water and has large windows to allow the sun in all day long and also has great heating making it an ideal winter destination for some R&R! Already planning our next visit.
