What a sanctuary. This home is truly an oasis. You are welcomed into the home through an abundant garden alive with lustrous flowers, well established trees & and an almost fairy like magic, all while being nestled on the banks of Bakers Gully Creek.

The Poached Pear is 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home with a space for everyone in the family or group to claim their own private nook. It may be the spacious outdoor garden, elevated deck with private areas on either side of the house, either of the 2 living spaces, 2 dining areas, by either of the 2 wood fires or the serenity of the relaxation room. Need I say more.

Each bedroom is fitted with a luxurious queen bed and ample wardrobe space to really settle in for those longer stays. No bedrooms have an ensuite which allows all guests to access any of the 3 spacious, modern bathrooms. Enjoy a quick rain shower or steep in the deep free-standing bath to rejuvenate after a hard day's fun, read a book or simply gaze out the large window directly into the private outdoor garden, the choice is yours.

Bedroom 1: Queen bed
Bedroom 2: Queen bed
Bedroom 3: Queen bed
Bedroom 4: Queen bed

The relaxation room is decked out with a chaise, floor to ceiling window and is the perfect place for a quiet read, a spot of yoga and ideal for a sneaky afternoon nap when no one's looking.
This property would be perfect for 4 couples or 2 small families as the layout really allows you to create 2 separate spaces if you choose. The fully equipped kitchen services the entire house and a second preparation area can be an alternative for your pre dinner nibbles and wine or separate dining space for the children. The kitchen is complete with all your mod cons so you can whip up home cooked meals for the nights you just want to stay in although with all the dining options around town you may not even bother.

The living areas are both fitted with their own TV, wood fires & reverse cycle and both comfortably seat 4 to 6 people. The home also has a fully equipped European laundry for those longer stays or to refresh your gear after harsh winter days up in the ski fields or out on the mountain bike track. There's also a second washing machine fitted outdoors for any overflow.

And for those Summer nights The Poached Pear has a 6-seater outdoor setting and gas BBQ to bask in the crisp Alpine evenings.
You are just over 1km to the centre of town and is a comfortable 15-minute stroll if you'd prefer to leave the car at home.
This property is booked for you and only you.

You will have the entire property to yourselves however bedroom access and price is determined by guest numbers.

Extra bedrooms will be closed off and can only be made available for a a small additional fee. 1-4 guests offers 2 bedrooms, 5-6 guests offers 3 bedrooms, 7-8 guests offers 4 bedrooms. Exceptions apply for bookings of 5 nights or more.

We have stayed with AVG a few times and Jess and Emma have always been very helpful. The Poached Pear, which AVG suggested, was perfect for our needs. Everything was as advertised and we loved it. We will be back!!

Scott - 18th December 2023

The House was very clean, comfortable and spacious. It was perfect for our weekend away close to shops and amendities.

Gary - 11th October 2023

Fantastic property just a short stroll from the centre of town. Visited on a cold, wet weekend in July. Perfect to soak up the warmth of the two woodheaters and other heaters. High quality beds and linen and a very well equipped kitchen. The team at Alpine Valley Getaways are friendly and very easy to deal with. Great communication before, during and after our visit to make everything is as we expected. Highly recommended!

Matt - 12th July 2023

The Poached Pear was a warm and welcoming home to arrive at (heating was on which were very glad of)on a very cold wet day. Clean and comfortable, the fire set ready to light and bathroom and kitchen modern and well equipped. We'll be back.

Joan - 14th May 2023

Perfect 1 week away @ the Poached Pear for 6 adults & 2 children. Plenty of room: 4 bedrooms & sunroom to sleep all of us - the beds were extremely comfortable. Plus having 3 bathrooms meant we could allocate 1 per family. With such a large group there was plenty of space across the 2 living areas + kitchens. We cooked dinner on 3 occasions & there was ample kitchen facilities plus the BBQ. Gardens also gorgeous, love the creek at the back of the property. Quality+++++ Style+++++ Comfort+++++

Tamara - 1st May 2023

Heather - 28th March 2023

The Poached Pear more than met our expectations for our Girls Trip. The quality of the furnishings and the beautiful "cloud-like' bedding made the trip even more memorable, thankyou

The dream getaway home, especially if you have young toddlers/babies. Separated spaces to isolate noise. All the lovely homey touches to this home. Wifi wasn't working but backup was provided. Fireplace fully stocked. Just a dream house.
