About this listing

An Exclusive romantic hideaway, The Boat House is one of just two accommodations on on a secluded private peninsula with 250 acres of wilderness, wildlife, and surrounding waterfront to explore. Featuring a king size bedroom, decadent bathroom and contemporary lounge and dining area with stunning water views. This is an accommodation experience to be savoured - take in the breathtaking views from the expansive private deck complete with Hot Tub for two!

The space

The Peninsula is for those who enjoy privacy and seclusion, in a magical setting. The property's wilderness and wildlife are yours to explore and absorb, surrounded by the magnificent waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Port Esperance Bay.

The Peninsula occupies some 250 acres on Esperance Point, locally known as "Blubber Head", including a 50 acre Crown Reserve at the head of the peninsula (view location map). The property commands 360 degree views encompassing sweeping water vistas across the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, to the Huon River and Bruny Island to the East, and across the beautiful Port Esperance Bay to the snow capped mountains of the Hartz range and the South West Wilderness reserve.

Use your private peninsula as a base to explore Tasmania's "Far South" while you enjoy this unique accommodation, home to a rich diversity of Tasmania's wildlife...bandicoots, wallabies, devils, echidnas and wombats to name just a few, as well as resident eagles and over 70 bird species including the endangered Swift Parrot.

We're pleased to announce that our walking track network is now complete! Our 4km walking track network visits a range of habitats from dry sclerophyll forest, through buttongrass heathland and tea tree wetland to rocky shore platforms.

Guest access

Boat House guests have access to the entire 250 acre property...complete with its own network of private walking tracks.
The property has two luxury accommodations so we do ask that you respect the privacy of guests at the other accommodation, Cape House on the Peninsula- this is 2km from the BoatHouse and each accommodation is private and exclusive!

Interaction with guests

The Peninsula Experience is managed by Essentially Tas- our office is situated in Bay View Road, Dover at Driftwood Cottages and we are available whenever needed for assistance or advice!
