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! Read some of the property reviews to see what previous guests have said about the location, the house and the easy booking process. We guarantee you will love our beach house and Opossum Bay!

Great view across the water

Lovely home base for our family of five whilst we explored Hobart. The view across the water was lovely and the house was clean, modern and had all the creature comforts.

mini break

  • 4 of 5

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

Jenny ,Celine,Archie.Amelia and Harriet

Nice to stay...

  • 5 of 5

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!
