Seaside Retreat Opossum Bay

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Opossum Bay is located on the Derwent River, just 40mins drive from the centre of Hobart.

"Seaside Retreat' is a reminder of happy beach holidays from childhood days, and echo from a less complicated and stress-free time of our lives which we might want to re-capture or share with our own children.

Open the door and across the road is pristine sand lapped by crystal clear water, this place offers a haven from the fast pace of 21st century living.

The beach is dotted with beautiful seaside properties. Families and young children enjoying the day, small boats floating about. Bliss!

The shack itself has a true happy warm holiday feel. Fresh bright linen, comfy beds (views from each bedroom window), self contained kitchen to prepare your tasty Tasmanian produce accompanied by a fine Tasmanian wine.

The toilet is a step back in time - and a step outside! Yes it is an outside toiler! Fully functioning.

Stroll to the beach, stroll to the local shop for some fish n chips, or try your luck and fish off the jetty (you will need to bring your own rod).

If this is the kind of relaxation that meets your needs then Seaside Retreat is your cup of tea.
