The space

The Beachouse is approx 150m to Coningham Beach. The property is elevated above Coningham Beach/cliffs & is only separated from the water by the Crown Land path that leads down to the Beach, or in the opposite direction the path trails to the delightful private Legacy Beach (about a 15 min walk away). You can either walk down the park land path to Coningham Beach, or take the sealed road - either way its only a few mins.
The elevated private property is a 2 level, 2 bedroom Beachouse and has everything you would expect to find in a family home. All linen, towels, including beach towels are provided. The new modern kitchen has an induction cooktop, oven (saucepans frypans etc), microwave, dishwasher, toasted sandwich maker, electric skillet, ‘Nespresso’ machine, Sodastream and generous supply of quality glassware, crockery/cutlery. There is a large Plasma screen TV & Blu Ray DVD player. We provide Apple TV with Netflix subscription for huge range of free movies, & BYO your own Apple ID to access paid iTunes content. We also have a selection of DVD's & CDs, as well as board games, books and magazines.
There is washing machine & clothes dryer, iron & board and 2 hairdryers, one in each bathroom.
On the entry is the master bedroom with a queen size bed with built in wardrobe and a chest of drawers. Internal stairs lead to the lower level opening to an open rumpus room with bunk beds & a lounge/TV area. The downstairs bedroom is off this rumpus room.
There are 2 bathrooms, one on each level. The upstairs bathroom is generous in size with a separate shower and bath, and vanity. There is a separate toilet. Downstairs there is smaller bathroom with a toilet, handbasin and shower recess.
The large two level deck with gas BBQ and outdoor furniture, has uninterrupted views over NorthWest Bay.

There are herbs, condiments and nonperishables in the kitchen which are there all the time and you are welcome to use them. And I provide an approx weeks supply of loo paper, tissues, dishwasher tablets, washing powder etc

The neighbourhood

Coningham Beachouse is a quiet, restful environment with spectacular views across Coningham Beach to Mount Wellington. It is ideally located to explore the many attractions in the south eastern Tasmanian area – Bruny Island, The Huon Valley and is also close enough to Hobart to be able to take in the Saturday morning Salamanca Markets. There are great walks through the Crown Land reserve and one trail leaves from Coningham Beach, passes along the cliff top in front of our Beachouse to and then continues onto for about 4 kms to Legacy Beach. A spectacular scenic easy walk to a secluded and private beach only accessible on foot.

Getting around

You need a car to access the property as there is no public transport nearby.

The property is everything as described. We were two couples- had plenty of space and were extremely comfortable throughout our stay. The home has everything you need to eat in- great bbq, well stocked utensils etc. A minutes walk to a beautiful, quiet little beach. The view from the deck is incredible- we never wanted to leave! Karina was readily available via phone/email and all communication was detailed, clear and really helpful.

This is an exceptional holiday home that I couldn't recommend highly enough, especially for families. We absolutely loved staying here and found plenty of shopping and tourist sites to visit. The house was so relaxing when we stayed at home. Very well presented and spaces for everyone. Thank you Karina.

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Karina's property. It is one of those extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed properties, suitable for a family holiday. It is away from the hustle bustle of the city, sitting on top of a hill with stunning sea views, and outlook to Mount Wellington. The Coningham Cliff Top trail is at your doorstep and a good walk. It is a home away from home, with everything you will ever need thoughtfully provided in each and every room of the house. The appliances, fittings, cooking vessels, crockery etc., were high quality, not the run of the mill stuff you would expect to find in a rental property. We did not lack for any comfort in Karina's home. The Apple TV was an unexpected bonus, and with Hobart's unpredictable weather forcing us indoors for a couple of days, it was a heaven-send. Thank you very much Karina for thinking of just about everything, being extremely responsive, and making our stay one that we will all remember for a long time to come. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a family-oriented, idyllic and calm location to unwind and relax.

We loved so much the Coningham beach house. Perfect place for a family relaxing holidays, the house has ALL what you need with a very well equipped kitchen, and is very cosy, the view on the bay and Mt Wellington is stunning, beautiful skies every mornings and evenings; we spoted seals swiming in the ocean from the deck and saw every nights few kangoroo jumping around... ! Location was good too...very closed to Hobard, Bruny island ferry, plenty hiking treck in the Hertz mountain or even one just down the house following the cliff to reach another beautiful tiny whether you like being active or just relaxing by the ocean, this house gives you the choice ! Karina has been really well comunicating with us, right from the beginning to the end; it was very easy to get hold of her if we needed, but everything is well explained in the house that you may not need to ! Neighbourhood very friendly too. We would love coming back to this house and highly recomend it for family even with young kids, or couple, friends...who loves nature and beautiful location.

We loved our stay at Karina's beachouse. The house is very spacious, super clean and very comfortable. The views from the balcony are amazing and the nearby beach is beautiful. The place is excellent for exploring the area incl Hobart, Bruny Island etc. Karina was very responsive and flexible. She gave us great tips and allowed us a late check-out. I would recommend this place to anybody! Thanks Karina!

Amazing location and experience. Host was awesome, organized and super helpful. House details were there for us, very clear instructions and the pics represented the property accurately. The house was clean, cute and had everything we needed. The wifi was good and there was wildlife all around our yard so we got to see plenty of wallabies, possums and rabbits. The ocean view is amazing and nice walking trails nearby were great to check out. We stayed 10 days and I could have stayed longer. It would be a good idea to have a car if staying here, but you can also walk 40 min to bus stop which takes you everywhere as well. Beautiful place. Thanks!
