The Lighthouse on the Beach has been featured in numerous travel magazines and TV programs, and boasts the title of Tasmania's #1 holiday shack!

Immerse yourself in complete relaxation as you sip cocktails on the deck and watch the sunset over the mountain. We have beach chairs and beach toys available for use and If you're feeling adventurous, take the canoe out and fish from the boat in the bay or explore the rock pools at the end of Opossum Bay Beach!

The space

Positioned pride of place on Opossum Bay beach, on the waters edge, the property has three large bedrooms, two generous bathrooms, a large sun-filled open plan living space, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, bar fridge and all the amenities one would need for entertaining. If you want the WOW factor then look no further! This is the venue for your next dream beach vacation!

Get lost in the serenity, enjoying stunning sunsets on the deck with uninterrupted beach and mountain views, swim in the sheltered bay directly out the front or make the most of some of Tasmania's best surf beaches just minutes away. A perfect place for fishing, diving, boating, hiking, golfing and exploring or just curl up and read a book. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves lapping at the shore.

Double storey living, all three bedrooms are situated on the top level, including large ensuite in the Master bedroom. The master suite also offers direct access onto your very own, exceptionally large private deck overlooking the bay - a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning as you watch the waves lapping on the beach.

On the ground floor we have large open plan living space with flat screen TV and sound system and huge windows overlooking the bay.

The Lighthouse is the perfect spot to watch the SYD-HBA yachts racing for the finish line. Settle in and watch the spectacular yachts tack into the bay on the final leg of their journey to Hobart. Watch dolphins and seals exploring the bay from the comfort of your deck chair on the verandah. In the cooler months, watch out for whale tails! For aurora hunters, auroras can be witnessed year round, with your chances increased if you book your stay around the equinox. Enquire for guiding services.

Book early for the summer as The Lighthouse is extremely popular from December to March and bookings fill early.

All this within 40 minutes of Hobart CBD and 30 minutes from Hobart Airport make The Lighthouse in Opossum Bay an attractive destination for couple getaways, executives retreat, family holidays or simply to take time out.

The Opossum Bay Store is a stroll away stocking most supplies, including fuel, milk and bread. Hill St IGA supermarket is a short and pleasant 15 minute country drive away.

Jetty and boat ramp is at the southern end of the bay and there is ample off street parking for cars and boat at The Lighthouse.

If you're after a house with unique design, sunny aspect from every room, mountain views, gorgeous beach walks, jetty jumping, fishing from the canoe, golf course, surf beach nearby & BBQ facilities with both indoor & outdoor dining areas and, of course, serious WOW-factor, then look no further than The Lighthouse.

This location is truly spectacular with a beautiful beach only a step away, and the stunning view across to Mt Wellington is amazing. The house has hidden secrets which the family enjoyed exploring.

We had a great weekend at The Lighthouse. Only wish we could have stayed longer. What a quirky fun place to stay. The house is full of surprises and really well set up. The fire burning stove was a plus. We will be back! Cheers, Jen & Dave :)

We had a lovely holiday here in the peace and quiet of Opossum Bay. Everything we needed was at the house. Beds were extremely comfortable and beautifully covered. All arrangements went smoothly with Leonie being very helpful. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for a quiet time while only being 40 minutes or so from Hobart. We had 6 adults in our group (2 couples and 2 singles), and we were all comfortably accommodated.
