Oysterhouse - A premium luxury experience right by the water.

Family fun at the shore
Oysterhouse is close to the airport (12min), Hobart city (25min easy drive), a central shopping precinct (less than 10 minutes). We are well located to access the Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur and the East Coast. We are also within a short, scenic drive of historic Richmond and the award winning wineries and restaurants in the Coal River Wine Region.

*Looking for a truly special treat? Oysterhouse has its own helicopter pad! If you would like Tasmanian Air Tours to pick you up from the property and take you on a bespoke tour, a picnic on a private beach, a visit to some of the above places or a trip to the city of Hobart please contact us for further details.

You will love our place because here you will feel nurtured by nature in total privacy on an absolute waterfront setting overlooking Pittwater, Borilla Bay and the many oyster farms dotted throughout the estuary.
At Oysterhouse there is an intimate relationship with the water and shoreline.
Staying in Oysterhouse is a premium luxury experience. You will have stunning unparalleled ever-changing views where at every turn floor to ceiling double glazed windows frame the estuary allowing you to observe nature from extreme comfort no matter what the weather. Huge bi-fold doors open on to expansive decking where you may chose to relax on one of the outdoor bean bags, fish off the deck or dine al fresco.
Nearby is a registered Ramsar international bird sanctuary providing habitat for migratory shorebirds and regionally significant flora and fauna.
Seals are often spotted and pods of dolphins are also sometimes seen.
The property sits on 7.5 acres (3 hectares) of absolute waterfront with several of its own private beaches where you can launch the kayak (life jackets provided) or just take a stroll and at low tide harvest your own oysters.
To visit you will leave the main road and enter a private road at the end of which is a historic railway cutting; this is Oysterhouse's private driveway.
In the evenings and early mornings expect to see wallabies, possums and echidnas.
The house is extremely spacious and the lounge is very comfortable with a cosy slow combustion fire, 65inch Smart TV, DVDs (in the cabinet there is an extensive range of DVDs), stereo and radio.
There is a large selection of books and a range of board games.
Heating and cooling can also be achieved from the reverse cycle air conditioner.
There is a gourmet kitchen with fan forced oven, gas plates, microwave/convection oven and steam oven and enough appliances to allow you to cook up a storm.
The master bedroom suite has the essence of a luxury resort. There is a luxury king bed where you can relax and enjoy the uninterrupted views over the water. The other bedrooms are very comfortable, carpeted and have luxury linen.
In the European laundry there is a front-loading washer, washing powder, iron and ironing board.
Older children will love the property but it is not ideal for very little ones due to its proximity to the water however if you wish to bring young children this can be discussed.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful views
Great property if you like to go out sightseeing during the day and come back to have dinner in beautiful surroundings, as I don’t know if I would like to the road in at night. We saw birds, dolphins and ate oysters overlooking the water.?

5/5 Excellent

Love this place
An excellent floor plan, great views, felt relaxed as soon as arriving. However, wasn't aware we needed to bring the usual tea and sugar. Great for wheelchair access.

5/5 Excellent

Luxury and tranquility
A fantastically appointed property. Spacious, modern, quality furnishings and appliances, lacks nothing. The property is very peaceful and has a lovely calming view across Pitt Water. We had such a relaxing break. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

#Bliss
Words can’t even begin to describe the peace and serenity we felt in this home and location. My husband caught us a dozen oysters using a scoop crab net without getting his feet wet. We did all our groceries on day 1 and never left till we checked out on day 5. If you love being by the sea and gazing at the stars, cold nights by the fireplace, we highly recommend this beautiful home. It is fully stocked with everything you can think of. It’s definitely a home away from home. Cheers Nigel we loved our stay and seeing the wildlife during the evenings

5/5 Excellent

Perfect relaxation and luxury
One of the few accomodations where the property is better than the photos! Not in central Hobart but if you have a car it’s not an issue, all the sights and attractions are easily accessible. The small town of Sorrell is a 10 min drive away for groceries, alcohol etc. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, laundry, music room, games room & movie selection. Couldn’t be a more comfortable and relaxing place to stay.
