I organised this property for a Xmas party stay for 4 siblings and spouses (and the matriarch). It was one of the very few properties in Tassie that could accommodate all of us (11 in total - 5 couples). This place was perfect. What a beautiful secluded spot and so handy to Hobart and the airport. The house had one double downstairs with its own bathroom (with spa) and outside deck. Upstairs was 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms were smaller but quite adequate with queen beds and some cupboard space. There was an upstairs family area with big screen TV and PS2, WiFi machine. The main lounge is facing the beach and the view is just superb - from Opossum Bay point to the south sweeping across north Bruny and up to Taroona. The beach is lovely and we saw a pod of dolphins of the rocks about 100 metres south of the house. The main dining room off the kitchen had a large wooden table and large wood fire. There is a separate billiard room off the dining area. The BBQ area is outside the dining area which was very convenient. Throw in central heating and massive views every where you looked, a lovely rambling garden and seating everywhere and you have a perfect spot for a big group to sprawl out and find peace or have a ball as you fancy. Frances and Henry were charming and will look after you. The local shop is a short walk and they stock groceries, papers, fresh bread and take aways. There are absolutely beautiful coastal walking tracks everywhere nearby. As an aside two of us went off each day for 9 holes at the Iron Pot Golf Club. A bit scruffy but quite long and a barrel of fun really. Make sure you pay though as they do police the honour system and if you don't the guy on the quad bike is not to be trifled with. All in all a wonderful place to get away from it all and be close enough to drop in to Salamanca or MONA if you want to go for a drive. Worth the money for sure. Be aware that the stairs up to the second floor are a little steep and turn so not for the very elderly or those with physical disabilities unless they are quartered downstairs - fine for anyone else.
